How Darren Missed Out On Wigan Captaincy

Tempting Chance Came And Went

Darren Simkin has revealed to Wolves Heroes how he was offered the captaincy at a Premier League club during his early-1990s time at Molineux. Okay, we’re stretching a point. His pursuers weren’t in the top flight then but they are now.

Molinews: Part Five

Castlecroft Reunion List Grows

A host of ex-Wolves players are pencilled in for appearances at next Sunday’s (September 5) nostalgic reunion at Castlecroft. The switch of the club’s long-time former training ground back to football use from rugby union is being marked by a match between Wolves All Stars and AFC Wulfrunians (kick-off 3pm). But, in addition to those players actually lacing up their boots, many others hope to be present to swell the turn-out on a day from which proceeds will be going to both Compton Hospice and Geoff Palmer’s son Steve, a former Wulfrunians player.

Six-Hitters Dwarfed By Allen’s Wolves

When The Current ‘In’ Score Was Racked Up By Half-time

Mind-blowing though the recent flurry of 6-0 Premier League results have been, they have to play second fiddle to a memorable game at Molineux 45 seasons ago. Because 6-0 was the score at half-time, not full-time, when Wolves took on Portsmouth in a Second Division fixture in November 27, 1965.

Hibby’s Happy Anniversary

Nostalgic Molineux Trip For Four-Goal Hero

Kenny Hibbitt, who scored all four Wolves goals against Newcastle 36 years ago today, marks the anniversary by heading to Molineux for the Premier League clash of the clubs on Saturday. A decade and a half before Steve Bull performed the same feat at St James’ Park, Hibbitt produced his one-man blitz for the League Cup holders on August 24, 1974 – against a side containing his brother Terry.

Big Pals Meet Again, 37 Years On

Winger Lutton Back In Town

They were room-mates when they toured Zambia and Malawi as teenagers with a Wolves age-group squad, incurred the wrath of Bill McGarry on an Anglo Italian Cup trip and played a handful of first-team games together. But Bertie Lutton and John Richards hadn’t seen each other for 37 years since being in opposite camps in an England v Northern Ireland Home International clash at Goodison Park.

Wolves In Europe: Part One

Cullis’s Men Struggled To Reproduce Home Front Heroics

The low-key Molineux friendly against Athletico Bilbao that preceded Wolves’ 2010-2011 campaign will not linger long in the memory. The contrast in interest and anticipation could hardly be greater to the response to the inaugural fixtures against foreign opposition back in the 1950s, when Molineux became the epicentre of British football.

Cullis The Top Man By Far

Knighton’s Tribute To Molineux Boss

In a playing career spanning six clubs and the best part of two decades, Ken Knighton had his fair share of managers. But he has no hesitation in naming Stan Cullis, his first boss at Wolverhampton Wanderers, as the best of the lot.

Cameras, Action! A VIP Visit…..

New DVD On The Way

Sir Jack Hayward was back on parade at Molineux this afternoon – as the cameras started rolling for a forthcoming dvd about his life and times. Wolves’ long-time former owner and chairman, having watched Saturday’s opening-day victory over Stoke, stayed in the city to be interviewed by the club’s official dvd partners ILC Media.

Sims On So-Called Great Escape

Club Were Cool With Trio’s Early Return

A youthful escapade that Bobby Mason describes as being ‘like the Great Escape’ is remembered in less dramatic terms by one of his co-accused, Nigel Sims. Did three young Wolverhampton Wanderers players really have the bottle to bail out of a month’s recuperation in Ireland and flee back early to the Midlands without permission?

Seasons That Started In Style

Some Curtain-Raiser Conquests To Stir Us
