Keeper's Clarification

Malcolm Finlayson has responded to a query emailed to Wolves Heroes over Christmas by clearing up confusion over where he was born. In the Legends area on this website, we had happily listed the heroic former Molineux keeper as being from Dumbarton, north of Glasgow.

Wolves’ Christmas Day Crackers

The Big Day Was Often Match Day

Not for well over half a century have Wolves played a game on Christmas Day but a practice that would seem highly improbable now was once commonplace. The first time the club played on that date was in 1901 when they lost 3-1 at Derby and then beat Everton at home the following day.

Fond Memories Of Playing In All Sorts

To fans of a certain age, last weekend's televised Championship game between Ipswich and Leicester will have induced considerable pangs of nostalgia. The sight of a snow-covered pitch, an unusually coloured ball and specially marked lines was a throwback to the distant days before clubs had under-soil heating.

Mardenborough On THAT Goal

Steve Mardenborough did not realise, until we pointed it out, that Wolves are due at Anfield next Wednesday for the 2010 staging of the fixture that made his name. But, more than a quarter of a century on from his stunning eclipse of Joe Fagan's all-conquering side, he insists he will be happy to shed his tag as the last Wolves player to score a winning goal there.

Media Maelstrom Helps Prompt Book Reprint

Eight TV appearances, 25-plus radio interviews, six signing sessions, a host of newspaper articles, three dinners, a trip to his old school and even a visit to the printers to see the first copy come off the press......Bobby Gould hasn't been quiet on the promotional tour for his new autobiography. And the former Wolves striker might be in for more of the same - because 24 Carat Gould is booked in for a New Year reprint.

Keeper Capers Fondly Recalled

Gary Pierce's heroics against Manchester opposition weren't restricted to his infamous man-of-the-match performance against star-studded City in the 1974 League Cup final. Exactly two weeks before the Wembley date, the keeper had also broken the hearts of Tommy Docherty's United - this time with a contribution that ended his opposite number's long-forgotten alternative role.

Question Time For Ken

Kenny Hibbitt is next up in Wolves Heroes' player q & a area - so please be ready with your questions for him. To coincide with the midfield legend's New Year elevation to the Molineux Hall of Fame, we will be turning the spotlight on him in the coming weeks.

Joe Jubilant - Even Before Kick-Off

Joe Gallagher has preceded today's West Midlands derby at Molineux by recalling a stirring dressing-room cry before a yesteryear clash between the two clubs. The Liverpudlian centre-half had not long left Birmingham for Wolves when he found himself back at St Andrew's for a meeting of two of the top-flight rivals in November, 1981.

Wolves Mates' Engine Room Duties

Footballers haven't always spent afternoons off sharpening up their snooker skills or getting their golf handicaps down. In the days well before players' wages elevated them to a different stratosphere to the fans who pay to watch them, many made plans for a possible future outside the game.
