Together Again

A Gray Day To Be Savoured

Many of Wolves’ League Cup winning heroes will be back on parade together later this season at a star-studded dinner in the Black Country. The function, promoted by Sedgley-based Route 39, is a celebration of the club’s Wembley successes of both 1974 and 1980, and has the latter final’s match-winner Andy Gray as one of the main guests.

The goalscorer against Nottingham Forest

Would You Believe It!

Familiar Faces Who Hurt Wolves

A recently published book on Wolves has revealed that Molineux was haunted by returning former players long before Robbie Keane was even out of nappies. While the Irishman’s two goals last weekend provided one of several big talking points of the derby against Aston Villa, author Clive Corbett has emphatically proved in his latest publication, Out Of Darkness, that the concept of old favourites coming back to hurt the gold and black cause is nothing new.

Jimmy Mac And The Doc – Links Aplenty

Manager Signed Him Twice But Also Suffered

Jim McCalliog has opened up on the huge crossover between his and Tommy Docherty’s careers after signing up to a new Scottish-based memorabilia business. The long-serving Wolves inside-forward twice joined clubs managed by The Doc as well as helping beat his sides in an FA Cup final and a semi-final.

Premier League Promise Was The ‘Carrot’ For Don

Goodman On Crossing The Black Country Divide

Q: Did you have any hesitation joining Wolves after being an Albion player previously? (From topcat99) A: No hesitation whatsoever. I was ambitious and wanted to play in the Premier League. That was my driving force in leaving Albion in the first place.

Dear Diary, Entry Five

Website’s Mid-Winter Manoeuvres

Time for a monthly look behind the scenes at Wolves Heroes – and an outline of the other calls and meetings we’ve had over and beyond our pursuit of the stories that have actually made it on line. Tues, Dec 20: Met up briefly over coffee in Trentham Gardens with Denis Smith, Harry Burrows, John Ruggiero and the wife of Terry Conroy. It was Stoke City business obviously but I regretted not having chance to ask their memories of games against Wolves – or whether any of them had ever come close to moving to Molineux. I have to make a return visit, though, so maybe next time…..

Another Brick In The Wall

Fred Provides A Missing Link

Fred Kemp has stepped in to fill one of the few remaining gaps in a signed football card collection that is being sold to raise money for needy children in Africa. The former Wolves wing-half, along with his team-mate David Wagstaffe, were two of the handful of players still being chased by organisers of a project to help fund a new school in Zambia.

A Black Country Derby Walkover!

Arch Rivals United In A Compelling Cause

Former Wolves players are being urged to join their Albion counterparts next month by supporting a pre-derby walk in aid of the Acorns Children’s Hospice. Groups of supporters from the two clubs are crossing the Black Country on foot before the big Molineux return on February 12.

Ouch, That Must Have Hurt!

Spectacular Goal Trails Might Well Have Been Blazed At Molineux

In relatively recent times, Wolves fans have found it painful that Jason Roberts went on to have a prolific, far-reaching career without kicking a ball in first-team football while at Molineux. A decade or two earlier, Charlie Nicholas confessed to departing Wolverhampton in a hurry when he felt homesick during a trial here and this website has already recorded how Wolves missed out on recruiting Alex Ferguson as a manager and Alan Ball as a player despite having both at their fingertips.

Sundy Best For Mick

How McCarthy Was Thrilled By Former Wath Wanderer

Mick McCarthy has preceded Wolves’ lunchtime FA Cup clash at Birmingham by pinpointing Alan Sunderland’s 1979 winner against Manchester United as the highlight of his numerous visits to Wembley. The Wolves boss and the 1970s Molineux utility man were born only a few miles apart in Barnsley and Mexborough respectively, although the age difference means their football paths have barely crossed.

Les: The Ultimate Mr Versatile

A Slice Of History Never To Be Matched

Stephen Ward enjoyed further success as a Premier League utility man of some renown when he struck his fourth goal of the season in the Molineux clash with Chelsea two days ago. But the man who has scored three times for Wolves in 2011-12, as well as once for the Republic of Ireland, still has a lot to do to match the adaptability of the club’s ultimate Mr Versatile.
