For sale: one football club.
Bought for £10 from previous owner in August 2007.

One deceptively spacious stadium, decorated mainly in old gold and black. Partially completed upgrade, complete with toaster banner.
One interesting squad.
One manager. Does hamster impersonations and states obvious.
One dedicated, noisy and irritating fanbase.
Parking for 34 Range Rovers, black and 40 fast cars, assorted.
One Jez Moxey. There's only one.
Two large-screen TV's, non-working but decorative.
One locked, unused trophy room. Possible Japanese prisoners-of-war inside. (Planning permission agreed for conversion to multi-faith prayer room).
One training complex.

Offers invited. Will P/X for Merseyside club that plays in red and rhymes with "Eh? Eh?" or small van. Send photo of van.

The Wisdom of Steve Morgan
Steve Morgan, August 4th 2015. “Sir Jack said when he was alive that I’d had a heart transplant to Wolverhampton and I think it’s a bit more than a heart transplant – it’s a whole body transplant. So that’s what Wolverhampton’s become to mean to me. ... And Morgan has reiterated his desire to complete the £40million redevelopment of Molineux."

September 28th 2015. "...after much thought, owner and Chairman Steve Morgan has decided to put his 100% shareholding in the Club up for sale."

I think it's for the best. There has obviously been some incidents that have happened behind the scenes, and Kenny Jackett's post match interviews now look more than likely to have been attacks at the hierarchy of the club regarding player transfers. Morgan has been a decent stable owner for us, and has never risked the financial future of the club which he should be commended for. The only downside is that he seems to be too cautious at times, where taking a small risk would have paid a great reward. I'm sure he leaves with the best wishes from the club, he's been a good servant to Wolves.

Wonder where this leaves our stadium redevelopment too?

With this in light Mark, do you think the calling for Jackett out was probably a little bit harsh? Not you personally, but a lot of my mates (Who I'm afraid to say do bring the name 'Fickle dingles' to light) are already on his back saying they want him out immediately after not turning over Preston on Saturday. Surely this just turns heads from the management to the owners of the club? It's strange with Wolves, there's ALWAYS something going on off the pitch - or seemingly since the McCarthy days.

Haha, yeah I'd agree with that. I often post after game where I'll say something in the heat of the moment whereas after leaving it for a while I would have a different view. I don't want KJ sacked, although I dont think he can offer us much more than mid table Championship football. Would love to be proved wrong mind.

In short, I should probably avoid 1FF after a bad result :lol:

For some reason this news made me think of this...

According to some Preston steward Steve Morgan had a heated argument with a few Wolves fans when parking his car at Deepdale. It ended up as him saying to fans "how much f*cking money do you want me to spend".

This looks likely to have been the trigger to him leaving...

I'd be surprised to be honest. He was hamstrung by our board regarding transfers, but he never said a bad word about any of them. Infact he went out of his way to sell how great our chairman is to Holloway (which, as it turned out, was a complete disaster). KJ has his flaws but he always came across to us as thoroughly decent, honourable and completely anodyne in press conferences.

Thread title changed to reflect need for better advertising for all West Midlands clubs up for sale.
If the RightMove signs appear at Walsall or SISU Mansion, I'll add "and lower league" to the title.
