Episode 169 – Jackett off?
Are Kenny Jackett's days at Molineux numbered? Wolverhampton Wanderers are sliding down the Championship table, after a run of no wins from their last seven games. We find out what's gone wrong for one of the division's promotion favourites this season, by getting the view of Wolves fan and podcaster Richard Hobbs, from the excellent Wolves Fancast. Notts County chairman Ray Trew announced his intention to sell the club this week, blaming the "foul and mindless abuse" his family had been subjected to.

We also get the verdict on Jamie Fullarton and the Magpies' latest struggles in League Two. There's also Keith Hill on dating apps, Northampton's ten on the spin and Lloyd Doyley's big move to discuss - plus Bolton Wanderers being sold for less than the price of Johan Elmander... To contact the show please e-mail via wearegoingup.co.uk or tweet @WAGUpodcast.
