Black Back To Where It Began

Wolves Still In John’s Heart

Eyebrows were raised when Scottish teenager John Black joined Wolverhampton Wanderers in 1974. Not least because the 16-year-old turned his back on his beloved Rangers to try his luck in the Football League and had also attracted strong interest from Arsenal, Manchester United and Leeds.

Molinews: Part One

Corica Bows Out On A High

Final Glory As Muscat Misses

Steve Corica has brought the curtain down on his playing career in glorious style – thanks in part to a blunder by his former Wolves team-mate Kevin Muscat. A serious hamstring tear prompted the nimble midfielder to announce recently at the age of 36 that the current season would be his last.

Good As Gould

Bobby Blown Away By Doyle And Wolves

Bobby Gould has given a resounding thumbs-up to Wolves’ survival prospects after his work travels took him to the games at Aston Villa and West Ham this week.

Way Back When

VIPs 3 Rest of the World 1

It wouldn’t pass for news in today’s more sensationalised times but the Daily Express devoted 14 paragraphs of precious space 55 years ago to a game that had nothing to do with the main purpose of Wolves’ adventure behind the Iron Curtain – the games against Spartak and Moscow Dynamo.

Anniversary Shock For Andy

Wembley Hero’s Fond Memories

Wolves Heroes spoke to Andy Gray at 5.30pm yesterday (March 15) and pointed out a certain anniversary in the life of both he and Wolverhampton Wanderers. Maybe we should have checked that he wasn’t driving at the time because his response was one of some surprise.

Variety, Then A Long Stretch For David!

Interesting Life Of Shock Wolves Debutant

A lot happened to David Wintersgill after he became one of the youngest first-team players in Wolverhampton Wanderers history almost three decades ago.
