Another Star Keeper In Our Sights

Mike Stowell has been lined up to step into the hot seat as the list of Molineux favourites targeted in John Richards' popular Player Q & A series spills over into the start of a second 'team.' Wolves Heroes' co-owner has so far conducted lengthy interviews with ten men for the feature after he had himself been in the spotlight when we set the ball rolling more than three years ago.

Happy Memories Of Whit Weeks Past

One special anniversary passed in the life of Wolves fans yesterday - and another is approaching in midweek. Amid the various play-off disappointments of the nineties and noughties, late May has also twice been a time for celebration among the club's supporters over the years.

A Meeting Of Similar Minds.....

Ron Flowers' high-profile reunion with the England World Cup winners this week came as only a partial surprise to Geoff Palmer - the former full-back knows how much his Molineux predecessor loves pounding the fairways. And the two former Wolves men, who have both had spells as captain of their golf clubs, had an unplanned get-together of their own when they met in Portugal recently.

A Dream Of An Opportunity - And It's All Thanks To Ron

First, an apology, because how I'd love to have spread the word of this happy reunion in advance! But protocol decreed otherwise. And so it came to pass that I had a one-man audience today with the bulk of England's World Cup winning squad. Our sincere thanks go to Ron Flowers for keeping a promise he made last year to tip us off when the time came for him to host the Charltons, Banks, Hurst & Co on this patch.

Farewell Soon To Wolverhampton's Most Famous Shop Worker!

Wednesday, April 24: Had what will be one of my last chats with Peter Knowles in Marks and Spencer. Having recently agreed to sign a 1960s-style Wolves shirt for a friend who is raising money for kids in Africa, Peter did the honours today but told me he was retiring in June. He plays some golf these days but is still very much committed to his faith, so his time will be put to good use.

Birthday Tribute To Genial Inside-Forward

We at Wolves Heroes are delighted to recognise a landmark birthday in the life of Peter Broadbent. The man who stands seventh in the all-time list of Wolverhampton Wanderers appearance makers was born in Elvington, Kent, 80 years ago today and played for nearby Dover before joining Brentford in May, 1950.

Wigan: Some Cup Memories

We Would Never Have Guessed It.....

Springfield Park was at its bleakest and most uninviting.....and Wolves were without the main weapon in their armoury. It was FA Cup second-round day in 1987-88 and the wind was fair howling down a tumebledown ground in which nearly 2,000 travelling fans were largely exposed to the elements.

Be Careful What You Believe!

Sir Alex Ferguson has seen to it that not much has so far been written or spoken about the FA Cup final but be warned: We are approaching what might be termed Whelan Time. If you haven't read or heard it yet, Wigan Athletic's septuagenarian owner-chairman will presumably be recounting his Wembley heartbreak once more - and riding roughshod over the good name of Norman Deeley in the process.

Wolves Down - But Here's To A Quick Return

Les Wilson and Charles Bamforth have become two of our first readers to use this site to express their sadness at Wolves' relegation. The two were together in Vancouver just over a week ago, when California-based Charles presented his host with a treasured keepsake as a token of his gratitude - a carefully compiled cuttings book from the 1960s.

Walker On Film As Part Of All-Star Cast

In one of our previous Memory Match features, we focused on a televised 3-1 Wolves victory at Old Trafford early in 1972 during a winter in which Bill McGarry's side were in a rich vein of form and heading towards the UEFA Cup final. Two seasons before that, when matches were shown in black and white on most sets, Manchester United were the visitors to Molineux for an early-season League fixture that the sides approached in very different moods.
