Promotion A Clear-Cut Business - As Usual

For all the frustrations and at times impatience that come with following Wolves, one thing is reassuringly obvious: when they do click, they get it right in a big way. Here's something for starters.......the club have now won five titles in 30 years. Ok, this one has not mathematically been secured but the combination of results required to deny them is so freakish as to be virtually irrelevant.

Nuno On The Pitch: Some Thoughts

Ecstatic Dashes Are Nothing New

Some dramatic and very late news is coming through......David Pleat is facing a charge of disrespect for running on to the Maine Road pitch in celebration of Luton's dramatic escape from top-flight relegation in 1983. And Bill McGarry has been cited for not showing any class after daring to race on to the Wembley playing area in pursuit of his heroic birthday-boy goalkeeper at the end of the 1974 League Cup final.

Molineux Return For Star Winger

Alan Hinton makes a sentimental journey back to the home of his boyhood dreams this week - on a visit from his base on America's west coast. The former left-winger is over here on an extended stay and will be attending Wednesday's Wolves v Derby game in the fervent hope that he is watching two clubs who will climb side by side into the Premier League in the coming weeks.

Programmed To Please

Have enjoyed making plans to give away the bundles of Wolves programmes that were handed to me last year by the widow of 1958 FA Youth Cup winner Les Cocker. Nice to have had some keen collectors come forward in response to my post on Facebook, among them Kelvin Weatherer, who operates his memorabilia business near the Molineux subway on match days.

Ross On His Unique Twin Careers

Stewart Ross has shared more details with Wolves Heroes about the extraordinary split career he had in two different parts of Waterloo Road - and asked whether he was the last part-timer to play in English top-flight football. Ross famously made his debut in front of a near-54,000 crowd against Manchester United 50 seasons ago while working as an accountant.

Birthday Boy And His Fortunes On The Big Day

So on how many occasions did Steve Bull score for Wolves on his birthday? The temptation, given his colossal record at Molineux, is to say he must have achieved the feat several times but the reality is somewhat different.

So How Does Nuno Measure Up?

This time last year, Wolves were languishing towards the wrong end of the Sky Bet Championship. Now, they are a club transformed, thanks in no small measure to the efforts of Nuno EspĂ­rito Santo. Victory at Norwich on the last day of October regained the leadership they had first tasted by beating Aston Villa a few weeks earlier and there they have remained by setting a red-hot pace in a notoriously competitive division.

Duo's Pledge To Reconvene In The Autumn

Bobby Gould and Les Wilson are planning a quick meet-up again after getting together earlier this month for the first time in around 35 years. As he has in the past with so many of his football friends, Wilson played the role of perfect host when the Goulds dropped in on Vancouver on their way home from a winter spent in New Zealand.

Rushing To Meet Our New Deadline

We sincerely thank the Wolves Heroes readers who used this site to order copies of David Instone's forthcoming book - and are pleased to confirm to them that it should be out before the end of the season. 'Between the Golden Lines' is described as a reporter's memoir - in this case, one that has more than three decades in the Molineux press box at its heart.
