'Great Player, Great Professional' - Law

Brian Law has joined the chorus of tributes to Gary Speed and revealed how their happy days together in Wales' age-group teams led to a surprise mid-1990s Molineux reunion. The two were team-mates in the international under-17, under-18, under-21 and B sides, one hailing from the north of the country and one from the south.

In-depth Look At Shock Drop Into Non-League

Bobby Mason, who we at Wolves Heroes have visited twice at his home near Burton-on-Trent, has become the subject of a fascinating article much further afield.

A Varied Month With Old Friends

Not every meeting and phone call we have actually makes it into print on this website. Some conversations and get-togethers are for other reasons. As a way of summing up this 'any other business,' we present part three of this new feature.

Despatches Of The Saddest Kind

Wolverhampton Wanderers are well known for having had a Major as a manager and for later fielding a defensive strong-man, Bill Shorthouse, who was wounded in the D-day landings. Sadly, the club also had their share of fatalaties in the 20th century's two biggest wars, with the names of two of them providing an ironic latter-day twist.

The history books show that John Richards and Don Goodman were well over a decade apart as spearheads of Wolves' attack. What Molineux-based literature will not demonstrate so readily, though, is that they were club colleagues in the 1990s after Richards had graduated to Sir Jack Hayward's board.
