Evocative Book Shows How Times Have Altered

Hand in hand with the huge changes the game has witnessed over the decades, it seems the reporting of it has undergone quite a revolution, too. Time was when the Charlie Buchan Football Monthly was one of sport's foremost publications - it must have been to run from 1951 to 1974 and, for the most part, with massive success.

Doog Delight - But With A Nasty Aftermath

April has already contained one high-profile London trip for Wolves. Another outing to the fringes of the capital awaits with their Premier League game against Watford in ten days' time. Heading to the south-east in this month of the year might have brought Derek Dougan out in a cold sweat several decades ago as a result of an unfortunate altercation that forms a painful part of Molineux history.

Looking Forward To A Change Of Sports

It's a big golf Sunday with the US Masters drawing to a conclusion, so now is a good time to cast our minds forward to when some of the Molineux favourites will be pacing the fairways this summer. Steve Daley has today informed us that the main date on the calendar is Friday, September 6 - the day of the Wolves Former Players Association's annual tournament.

Cup Pain Will Continue – Richards

Final Day Regret Is Still To Come

John Richards fears Wolves' players will have to steel themselves against more heartache when the FA Cup final comes round next month. Richards was a semi-final loser a staggering four times with the club, once as managing director in 1998, and sympathises now with the squad who he believes are still destined to bring happier days to Molineux.

But Cup Comeback Must Act As A Spur

As a beaten FA Cup semi-finalist and a twice Wembley winner, Barry Powell knows something about the emotions Wolves and their supporters are going through right now. The former midfielder was among the gold and black masses left heartbroken by yesterday's big turn-around - and can remember the contrasting feelings he experienced when in the club colours more than 40 years ago.

Cup Cave-In Was Harrowing For Popular Defender

In the maelstrom of excitement building up to Wolves’ weekend Wembley visit, most attention has been on past semi-finals, including the miserable showing against Arsenal in 1998. I would like to concentrate on the cup history between Wolves and Watford, though, especially a fifth-round Molineux encounter just over 39 years ago.

Might Banksy Have Come To Molineux?

Friday, March 1: Was flattered to receive a phone call from Central TV requesting a little help with the background information for their coverage of Gordon Banks's funeral next Monday. What a turn-out that is going to be!

Englishmen Abroad - In The Line Of Duty

They were friends at Wolves a quarter of a century ago, backroom colleagues across the Midlands for a year or two and now they have been reunited by bumping into each other on their respective travels across Europe. A long way from home, Mike Stowell and Rob Kelly have used international fortnight to have a catch-up during what is late season for one and pre-season for the other.

Emotional Evening For Star Winger

Alan Hinton has been feted once more for his huge contribution to football in Seattle and the wider Washington area. The former Wolves, Derby and England winger was the centre of attention at a function aimed at raising awareness of his adopted region's sporting past.

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.
