By Popular Demand.....Jim On Return Visit

Jim McCalliog is making another visit to Molineux next month - and taking the opportunity to also honour the memory of a team-mate from elsewhere. The proud Scot has already crossed the border once this season with Wolverhampton as his destination, taking in the Premier League home game against Southampton in the autumn.

Bully's Big Winner Made Major History

We always said there would never be another Steve Bull and the passage of time is doing nothing to make us revise that opinion. It is 27 years today since the striker assumed the mantel of leading all-time Wolves goalscorer and the colossal way in which he went on raising the bar seems as impressive now as it ever did.

Echoes Of The Past Through Semi-Final Spot

Wolves are in the FA Cup semi-finals, so we just had to speak in a hurry to the only man other than Stan Cullis to have twice led the club into the last four of this competition in the last 100 years. So what was John Barnwell's Saturday night like as Manchester United perished where Liverpool had done by the same score three rounds and two and a half months earlier?

Wolves And United - Long-Time Arch Rivals

Tomorrow's Molineux blockbuster is the fifth time the clubs have met in the sixth round of the competition and the seventh occasion on which they have clashed at this stage or later. The first two of those confrontations were semi-final battles contested almost 70 years ago - on March 26 and April 2 of 1949.

Wolves Move Ended Prospect Of Cup Run

Wembley hero Peter McParland sacrificed a possible return trip to the twin towers when he signed up in 1962 for a Wolves side who were already out of the FA Cup. The Ulsterman had achieved fame in the competition thanks to the controversial brace that won the 1957 final for Villa against Saturday's Molineux visitors, Manchester United.

Bridge Too Far For Turner

Quite a few highly significant things happened to Wolves a quarter of a century ago. Graham Turner's reign of seven and a half years came to an end, Graham Taylor was appointed as his replacement and, 25 years ago in this second weekend of March, the club visited Chelsea in the quarter-final of the FA Cup.

Rampaging Wing-Back Nears Milestone

Matt Doherty is on the brink of a significant breakthrough in his flourishing Wolverhampton Wanderers career. The Dubliner, whose form in his more attacking role under Nuno Espirito Santo continues to amaze, has played 241 times for the club and is therefore not close to an obvious major landmark.

Winning Trip Back For Popular Centre-Half

Derek Mountfield is delighted to have toasted three well-won points on the latest of his occasional visits back to Molineux. Twenty-five years on from his free-transfer departure from the club, the former League Championship, FA Cup and European Cup Winners Cup winner was on corporate duty in the Stan Cullis and Billy Wright Stands at yesterday's victory over Cardiff.

Dropping By...….En Route For Three More Points

Saturday, February 2:Had the pleasure of a mid-morning 'refuelling' visit from Mel Eves and his chauffeur, Mike Taylor from BBC WM, as they made their way to Everton for Wolves' game today. Pleasant as it was, I guess it would have been better to see them on their way home and had a first-hand account of the side's excellent result and performance at Goodison Park.

Striker Answered Higher Calling

It was our good friend, Steve Gordos, who penned the book entitled God’s Footballer, telling the story of the young man who astonishingly walked away to become a Jehovah’s Witness. Perhaps the other former Wolverhampton Wanderers forward who might best be able to understand what was in the heart and mind of Peter Knowles in 1969 is someone who himself gave up the game to pursue a life dedicated to God.
