How Wolves Briefly Had A Ball

Even the best of them sometimes get it wrong. In the case of Stan Cullis, we can put the name of Alan Ball down as a rare stain on a magnificent managerial career. Wolves had the firebrand red-head in their grasp as a 15-year-old and it was to their great regret over the years that they let him slip away following more than two months of trial matches and training in the West Midlands.

LA Story Clouded By Injury Misfortune

Bob McNab does not look upon his time at Molineux with any particular fondness. The 1975-76 season was a frustrating time for a player who prided himself on being the fittest of the bunch at the heart of success.

A Quality Full-Back - Too Right

Q: Am I correct in saying that, when you signed for Wolves, you were a right-back before becoming our left-back for all those years? (From Fleet Wolf).
