Milestone For ‘Legend’ Karl
Karl Henry has taken his place in the Legends area of this website after making his 200th competitive Wolves appearance in Sunday’s victory over Fulham.
The midfielder and former captain becomes the 77th player to reach the landmark – a fitting figure as the club were founded in 1877.
And Henry should not be long in climbing the ladder considerably. Even if he were to play only half of this season’s games, he would be in the top 60 appearance-makers from Wolves’ history.
Big Turn-Out On The Cards
Wolves Heroes will be present in force at the funeral of Frank Munro at St Anthony’s RC Church in Bee Lane, Fordhouses, tomorrow afternoon and will subsequently be providing a full account of proceedings. The service starts at 3.15pm.
A Happy LA Story
It’s not like Robbie Keane to be upstaged without a good fight – not even by David Beckham.
Sure enough, the Wolves-produced star marked his LA Galaxy with a goal at the weekend and had a congratulary hug from Beckham as a result.
Wolves fans will probably enjoying clicking on http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/blog/2011/aug/21/robbie-keane-la-galaxy-debut-goal to read how the on-loan Tottenham forward did it. The goal is at http://www.mlssoccer.com/videos?catid=114&id=18424
Table-Topping – A Black And White Issue
Wasn’t it great to see those old black and white clips at the end of Match of the Day 2 on Sunday to remind ourselves of another Wolves surge to the top-flight summit?
Colin Murray signed off the show by saying that September, 1962, was a pace-setting period in the club’s history as well, a stunning goal from Alan Hinton in the 3-2 victory at Ipswich being played amid the closing credits.
Stan Cullis’s side won their opening three games that season, including an 8-1 walloping of Manchester City on the opening day and a follow-up 4-1 romp at West Ham.
They were twice briefly displaced by Everton but still led the way until losing at home to the Merseysiders – the eventual champions – at the start of October.
