On Our Travels Again!

Following the success of Charles Bamforth in tracking down Maurice Daly and setting up both a long interview and then a meeting with him at Molineux we at Wolves Heroes have continued to spread our wings. Instead of posting in our News Area one day recently, we added to our popular Tours section by profiling the club's trip to the United States in 1969.

How Darren Bounced Back From Molineux Rejection

Darren Wright might have a declared birthplace of West Bromwich in March, 1968 but the former full-back is decidedly old gold. I say that from his football loyalties and also suggest it is because of his devotion to pursuing the right and proper, no matter what.

Head Coach Has Taken That Well-Trodden Path North

It isn't compulsory for those with their eyes on being at the Molineux helm to be former Watford managers, coaches or players - but it seems it helps! A look at the Managers section on this website reveals the firm connection between the dug-outs at Wolves and Vicarage Road, exemplified by the case of Kenny Jackett.

Young Man…..What Do You Mean ‘No’?

Wayne Pain At Missing Out

We at Wolves Heroes have told before how Wayne Clarke said no to Brian Clough in favour of making it big at Molineux - now we can reveal a second rejection to Ol' Big Head. The programme for the Wolves v Leeds top-flight game 37 years ago tomorrow refers to the striker having been earmarked for a trip to the Canaries that autumn with an England youth team then managed by Clough.

An Impressive Roll Call

Welcome to one of the newer areas of the Wolves Heroes website.
Here, we not only list every player who has appeared in a League match for the club but also the order in which they did so.
For example, this is the place to learn that a few well-known and not-so-well-known men, such as Gerry O'Hara and Robert Kelly, have special niches in Wolves history that they presumably knew nothing about.
In 1976, O'Hara became the 600th man to be given a League debut by the club while Kelly clocked in as the 700th more than a decade later.
Please take a slow trawl through to see the entire order but bear in mind that, if you are revisiting this area, we may have made alterations since you last looked owing to a recount and the eagle eye of our checker, Donald Noble in Coventry!
We stress that the list refers to League games only, not any of the cups, and stretches back 125 years to when Wolves were one of 12 proud founder members of the competition.

A Trophy For The Molineux Cabinet

Texaco Cup Heroics: Part Two

In what was described as a 'wistful' glance back at the Texaco Cup, Wolves fanatic Jim Heath referred to the competition in a When Saturday Comes article a decade ago as 'a kind of British Isles Cup for also-rans.' He also said it heralded the game’s modernisation, with corporate sponsorship being cautiously welcomed in the form of the £100,000 the oil giant sunk into the venture.

‘Home’ Win That Was Perfect Preparation

Texaco Cup Heroics: Part One

It didn't have the glamour of the following season's campaign - and certainly not the same reach - but Wolves' winning crusade in one of football's long-neglected competitions might just have been a leg-up to UEFA Cup success. By popping up to Scotland and over to Northern Ireland, their players became more familiar not only with travelling and living together, but also with the two-leg combat that was largely alien to them.

A Man For All Seasons

FA Youth Cup Winner Who Piled Up The Runs

Phil Parkes bowled mean and quick and Ron Flowers brought as much Yorkshire grit to the cricket pitch as he did to the old gold, approached as he was to play at county level. But, whereas Lofty and Flowers became Wolves legends, Ian Hall achieved far more in white flannels than ever he did at Molineux. And yet, as a youngster, he seemed destined to reach the very top in the winter game.

Alan Stephenson slides the ball away from danger as Hugh Curran hovers in Wolves' 1-0 home win over West Ham in mid-October, 1969. Also pictured are Bobby Moore and Frank Lampard Senior. The two clubs had twice met, with honours even, in a tournament in the USA the previous summer. Bobby Gould used his autobiography to tell a story about how he clashed with Stephenson - or, more accurately, with his wife!

Boyhood Fan Who Lived The Dream

Mel On His Many Molineux Memories

No former Wolves player remains more active and visible around Molineux than Mel Eves. If it's not playing for and running the club's All Stars side, it is watching first-team matches and supporting charity events. Not surprisingly, he was more than happy to step up as John Richards' latest interviewee in this series, the more senior man having very much been a guiding light and inspiration to him in his playing career.

United States, 1969

Goal Glut Made Wolves Champions Again

There was no swimming in the ocean, no brushes with pop star 'royalty' and no epic extra-time golden goal winner when Wolves returned to the land of their famous 1967 conquest. Two years on from lapping it up on Los Angeles' fashionable Wilshire Boulevard, meeting The Monkees and finally overcoming Aberdeen in a final that is still regularly talked about on both sides of Hadrian's Wall, they had to make do with somewhat less plush and desirable surrounds.

Wolves In 20/20 Vision

New Book By A Fan For The Fans

It's the dream of many a supporter.....being invited to go into print and trawl the memory bank for 20 great Wolves goals, 20 of the club's best signings and 20 memorable Black Country derbies. Lifelong Molineux fanatic Jim Heath was handed just such a task by our sister company Thomas Publications and has made a brilliant job of his first book, Wolves In 20/20 Vision.

Danny Hegan: 1943 – 2015

August 9th, 2015

A Wayward Talent With A Mischievous Side

Danny Hegan was sometimes praised and sometimes cursed. He was rarely ignored. Well over 40 years on from a Molineux stay containing much promise and no little controversy, stories about him still do the rounds whenever his old colleagues meet.

Des Horne: 1940 – 2015

July 22nd, 2015
