Hoddle gone

Glenn Hoddle has today announced his resignation from WWFC. I'm glad he's gone - not because I thought he was poor (although others did) but so he won't be used as a scapegoat by the club come November.

According to his public statement, Hoddle said: "I wish to announce my decision, with immediate effect, to resign as manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club. It has been a very difficult decision but I feel that my expectations and the club's expectations have drifted too far apart in recent weeks. This decision has been made early in pre-season for the benefit of the club. I would like to take the opportunity of thanking the board, players, staff and fans for their support and efforts and wish everyone connected with Wolverhampton Wanderers every success in the future."

I wish him the best of luck - now the Wolves fans can concentrate on bringing pressure to bear on the board. They've sold Lescott, our best player, and let Miller (free to Celtic) and Cameron (free to Coventry) go (along with Postma, Silas, Ganea, Ross, George and Anderton). There are 21 players on the books - 3 are injured and another 2-3 are bound to leave. The club is down-sizing so fast that currently there is a possibility that they cannot field a full team come the new season. I am not looking forward to the new season - I am only looking forward to the Hayward years to end.
