Dear Diary Entry 39

Tuesday, December 30th, 2014
Where's A Fast Luxury Car When You Need One? Saturday, November 22: After Wolves' indifferent recent run, I longed to see Steve Morgan overtaking me on the way to or from today's home game against Nottingham Forest. On the two occasions he has done that earlier this season on the A41, it has been before or after good Wolves victories.

A Berry That Loved Changing Colours

George Berry could well relate to the sight of Wolves' victorious players being applauded off in their saturated white shirts at Watford last night.

Wolves Benefitted From Lilleshall Link

Some of the chemistry beneath one of the more successful managerial partnerships in Wolves' history has come to light via a dusty and well-known old publication.

More Memories Of Game That Led To Launch Of European Cup

There were 37,509 present when Manchester City - hardly weary veterans on the Champions League stage - took on Roma early in the Group E programme which ended for them in success last night. The club's second winning of the Premier League title in three seasons remained fresh in the memory and September still had a few hours to run as they did battle with the Italians at the spacious Etihad Stadium. Not a great turn-out then, was it?
