Emotional Farewell To A Legend, With Anecdotes Aplenty

Funeral day underlined what we already knew....that there will never, ever, be another Bill Slater. In a leafy corner of West London yesterday, though, we learned that there was much more to the story beyond the glorious statistics represented by his winning of three League Championships, one FA Cup, 12 England caps, 21 amateur international caps, the Footballer of the Year Trophy, a CBE and an OBE.

All Eyes On The Meadow

Monday, December 3: Quite a coincidence today to be told by a former Shrewsbury chairman, Ray Bailey, that his old club had appointed ex-Wolves skipper Sam Ricketts as their new manager. Many of us at Molineux will wish him only well.
