Genial Figure Who Prepared Wolves For Greatness

It has often been lamented by veteran Wolves supporters that Stan Cullis was denied the full extent of the praise he deserved for winning three League titles and two FA Cups at Molineux. Here, though, we can present evidence that one of his predecessors, Major Frank Buckley, was very much lauded - in an obscure and long-forgotten publication at least.

Dave Retraces His Unhappy Wolves Steps In The Best Of Causes

Charity fund-raising dinner in his honour or not, Dave Thomas was piercingly honest. "I hated my time at Wolves," he said. "It was a horrible period for me." It wasn't the usual opening gambit from a VIP guest at a function through which giant waves of gold and black nostalgia washed, even if this gathering was at the lovely Red Lion Hotel at Bobbington, half an hour from Molineux.

In-Depth Spotlight On The Men Behind The Printed Word

Popular TV Show That Lit Up Our Living Rooms

John Holsgrove has delved into his old scrapbooks to remind us of the part he played in a long-running 1960s TV panel show that was loved by football fans the country over.

City Challenge Conjures Up Golden Memories

It's not all about 1974 so far as League Cup meetings between Wolves and Manchester City are concerned, easy though it is to fall into that sentimental trap. Beyond the heroics of the flying Gary Pierce, the arms-aloft John Richards, the shirt-swapping Frank Munro and many other Molineux heroes at Wembley 43 years ago, there have been notable occasions of a less spectacular kind in earlier and subsequent clashes of the two clubs in a competition that threw them together again last night.
