No Gentle Letting Down For Colin

Colin Brazier has revealed how his six-year Wolves stay came to a sudden and premature end - in a way that somehow summed up his career. It was a case of one door opening and another shutting firmly in his face when the club's 1980 League Cup final substitute was greeted with the fateful news by Ian Greaves 15 months later.

How The Major Shamed Cup Flops

Disappointed that Wolves didn't put Crystal Palace away at the first attempt in their FA Cup meeting at Molineux yesterday?

Steve Kindon has been booked as the 'aperitif' for corporate fans at next week's spicy encounter between Bolton and one of his former clubs, Burnley. The ex-Wolves striker, now a highly popular after-dinner speaker, has the thorny Reebok date in his diary for Tuesday, January 26 - a couple of weeks before he heads for the Midlands and a February 11 engagement at Walsall.

Pee Wee's Contented Glow

There are surely worse jobs than being head coach of the San Diego Sea Lions from division two of the Women’s Professional Soccer League. That is the 'fate' of Paul Dougherty, remembered fondly as Pee Wee, the tiny midfield dynamo of mid-1980s Wolves - and he is clearly very happy with his lot. Last season was his first in charge at San Diego and he turned round a side who had won four games and lost nine by leading them to a top-three position from which they just missed the play-offs.
