    Newbridge you obviously didn't see our so-called players as we dropped to Div 4 in the 80s...

    I think it was 2-2, must've been 90/91 so that would've been our 2nd season in division 2.

    You’re probably right, was a good few years ago. I could’ve sworn we won 2-1! Must be getting old.

    Was waiting for someone to say about the 80’s! First match in 89, so can’t quite compare to them. But even the dross through the 90’s on a technical level weren’t as bad as some of Mick’s overachievers.

    Believe me, if you missed the Chapman brothers etc you were damned lucky. At times l'm certain that you could have gone to a Wolvo pub and taken and played half of their Sunday League team without the Wolves team looking worse.

    They did!!
    The Dudley and cradley league in the late 80’s early 90’s was full of players getting poached by wolves and Albion. Albeit they never made it big but every week there was one or another going.

    He has a style which is a difficult act to follow. He keeps the team onside despite difficulties on the pitch...and to be fair, Ipswich were not far below the play-offs. After he goes it all implodes. It's no criticism of him, he does what he can with what he's got. In our case, Terry had no chance.

    We never, ever overachieved with Mick. Not even in his first year.

    "Overachievement" is a false concept. The table never lies.

    But it's all short-term with no apparent long-term planning...

    He didn't have a free hand to buy who he wanted with us and there was no money at Ipswich.

    Moxey was the one who held the reins over who came in and many players were foisted upon him from advice which Moxey received from elsewhere.

    Cavan and Campbell, great memories along with Dean Edwards, Peter Zelem and Mike Coady. Some of the best ever away games though.;)

    Remember a game at Gillingham which we lost around 1983-84? and David Barnes got sent off. Someone by us was smoking pot. Smelt terrible.

    17 years of mid table Championship mediocracy without a decent cup run or even the play offs followed by relegation to League One. Fair play to their remaining fans and good luck to them.

    Hope they bounce back.

    Pretty sure Paul Cooper was from Cannock seem to remember my dad telling me.

    I have a huge soft spot for Ipswich Town as all of my dads family live there lovely part of the world.. And real sad to see what there going through always been well run, play a certain style of football thats easy on the eye certainly in Sir Bobbys time they were real trailblazers with a brand of football before its time. Its that football thr fans were used to seeing a passing possession style, which brings me on to Mick he was never going to be long term there because of that, but as we all know what Mick is great at is being a crisis manager going to clubs in a bit of mess getting them straight and going again but as we all know he has a shelf life. Once he starts the dividing of fans thr end is always nigh

    Newbridge, if he managed to keep the worst footballers you have seen in the Wolves colors in the Premiership for three seasons, he is undoubtedly the greatest manager that Wolves ever had. Of course you may be so blinkered to believe that.

    Technically they were though. Our best players at the time never pulled up any trees elsewhere. The ones that stayed were relegated again.

    You have a point Rufio, but again that suggests that Mick over performed as a manager in getting these players to survive three seasons in the Premiership and I don’t believe that is the point Newbridge was making.

    Indifferent to the demise of Ipswich. Nobody has a divine right to be up there in the top league for ever and a day.

    Tbf, their fans new this would happen this season whoever was in charge. They have no investment, and they can't compete even with league one on wages. mick knew it as well I reckon. I'm not fan of lambert, but he is on a hiding to nothing there

    Mick had the same problem here as he had at Ipswich. Remember when we had Scott Dann lined up to sign, Brum came in offering him 4 times the wages we were apparently. Money was available to purchase but not for competitive salaries.
