    Wolves used to be a big club, but that was a long time ago. With a board like they have now, the only direction they are heading is down, and deservedly so. The way they treat staff they don't deserve success. Saunders doesn't need to prove himself to anybody, he did a fantastic job at Wrexham considering the state of the club, he did a great job at Doncaster, and was sacked after less than half a season at Wolves. Everyone knows that many club chairmen are totally clueless about the game and expect to buy success overnight. Clubs like Wolves and many others will never enjoy success as long as they have a board who know nothing about the game, no matter how much money they have. Wolves will have a real problem now trying to attract quality players and the managers job will be treated as a poison chalice. All brought about by a clueless board!

    I cannot understand Dean Saunders mentality of leaving a side on the verge of promotion for a side that was on the verge of being relegated. Even for more money the thinking is weird, although they do question the mental agility of footballers.

    Saunders left wrexham when a bigger job came up, he left doncaster when a bigger job came up he hs not shown huge loyality so he can't expect a huge ammount back. he failed at wolves and has been shown he door, simple as that

    Will the Wolverhampton hierarchy ever learn? Their monumental mistake in sacking Mick McArthy in the first place, then comopunded by a succession of (as it transpires) short term replacement managers, culminating in the sacking of Dean after only twenty games, is foolhardiness in the extreme. What they need above all is STABILITY, and some sensible decisions to be made regarding the running of the club. They haven't given Dean Saunders, who I believe shows some promise as a manager, a chance.
