From Teamtalk.com, there is talk of Robson being in the running for the wolves job, although the favourite is Strachan....

Does anyone know what happened re Sir Bobby's move to Russia? or was it just hot ar as usual...

He would be top at Molineux, but surely it is beneath him? or is he up to a challenge???

Okay, Sir Bobby has seen better days, i agree but his achievements are as follows:

Ipswich: FA Cup, 1978; UEFA Cup, 1980-81
Runners-up Old First Div. 1980-81 & 81 & 82
PSV Eindhoven: Championship, 1990-91 & 1991-92
FC Porto: Championship, 1994-95 & 1995-96; Cup 1994
