Welcome to Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club Kenny
After probably the longest interviewing process in football
history, we have finally got our new ‘Head Coach’. What struck me about this appointment was
that I have no real opinion on the new man at the helm. Yes he wasn’t my first
choice – which was Steve Davis incidentally – but Jackett is someone who has
quietly plied his trade in football, winning a number of admirers in doing so.
Many clambered for the likes of Owen Coyle to be brought in
but I - like Jex Moxey and Steve Morgan it seems – had my reservations on that
one. Partly because he looks like he’s about bring himself on at any moment
during a game and partly because of his nosedive with a very decent Bolton
On the face of it Jackett looks like a solid appointment. At
Swansea he made good progress. I’m not sure he’s the brains behind their
progression into domestic cup winners like everyone seems to be clinging on to,
but he did manage a promotion and a play off final in his time there. At
Millwall – a dangerous club for any manager – he has made steady progress too,
establishing them in the second tier once more. He also managed to make Andy
Keogh somewhat prolific, a task for any manager as we all know.
Underwhelming is probably the word to describe this
appointment, but not necessarily disappointing. If you are a stats man take
this – at Millwall Jackett had a win percentage of over 42 across 300+ matches.
We haven’t had anyone with that sort of record since Graham Taylor. The more
you look into the career of this unassuming bloke, the more realise he has
something about him.
But as we know, Molineux can be a real managerial graveyard.
The once promising Mark McGhee knows that all too well. I can imagine Stale
Solbakken’s reputation has taken a hit since his departure. Dean Saunders – the
less said, the better.
We have a mountain to climb. People will go on that we are a
much bigger club than the league we are in. But the stark reality is that we
deserve to be there. Next season will be a culture shock. We have been plunged
into a league where prehistoric football still exists – Dave Bassett is still
working in some capacity at Sheffield United. It may not be pretty and it may
not be instant. But I firmly believe success will come under Kenny Jackett. He
has already said he will need to prove himself to the fans. But his promises of
a young, vibrant and attacking Wolves side will have eased concerns.
Those three words could also be the signal of the end of an
era to some of the club’s servants too. Let’s hope it is sooner rather than
All the talk and media soundbites mean little know. It is
time for the club to roll its sleeves up and embrace the challenge ahead. Let’s
hope we have the right man leading us into battle.
This week marked a year since Mick (who is looking increasingly like Merlin Mick) McCarthy was removed from his post as Wolves manager. Since then Terry Connor, Stale...
