According to Bedfordshire folklore, ex-Luton Town boss Mick Harford became so enraged with one of his underperformers that he locked him up in a cupboard overnight as punishment.
If only our hard suffering away fans could have found it on their travels, they could have squeezed half a dozen of our losers in before throwing away the key.
It’s doubtful their egos would fit in, despite the space left by missing guts and stomachs for a fight.
They’d be too busy arguing with the manager about being hard done by anyway, or the indignity of playing a style of football that they don’t like.
Maybe being the fourth worst squad in the history of the Premier League failed to deflate the arrogant bubble that they continue to float around in.
After playing in the biggest embarrassment since that defeat on November 24 1986 they should finally hang their heads in shame and admit defeat like we always do.
To quote Mike Taylor from Radio WM: “Luton Town showed a great deal of fortitude typical of a cup game, but what wasn’t typical was their keeper having to make 10 saves. Wolves probably created 3 or 4 chances in the whole match.
“Wolves just didn’t do enough. Nowhere near enough.”
And it wasn’t like the defeat came as the biggest surprise to anyone of gold and black persuasion who knows a bit about football.
That accolade went to someone who boasts neither, in the shape of Steve Morgan who actually bothered to attend and watch the club he purports to run, for once.
If this latest debacle hasn’t injected a modicum of professional pride into a man who has failed to show any for so long, then we really are on a slippery slope.
A plummet of 35 league places in 15 months should have prompted some sort of meaningful action to arrest such a slump way before now.
After Terry Connor, he finally gave us Stale Solbakken and a handful of quid from a ‘treasure chest’, a £25 million transfer windfall and a small fortune in television money combined.
With no effort, investment or inclination ever being shown by Mr Morgan at any time since Stephen Hunt scored at the North Bank end, I can offer a genuine Scandinavian solution befitting of his parameters.
…A cupboard from IKEA to pack away a shameless group of fraudsters, like the one Mick Harford once used.
