The Ultimate Case Of ‘What Might Have Been’

Sad Tale Of Cursed Goal Phenomenon

Wolves Heroes are booked in for a visit to see Ted Farmer at his Bridgnorth home on Thursday. We will also be present in the previous few hours at a players’ charity golf day at nearby Astbury Hall. Ted tells us that his local rugby club recently secured a return trip to Twickenham and regrets the fact that he doesn’t see one of his long-time friends Gerry Harris, who is not far away in Claverley, out and about much any more. Clearly, he shows a keen interest in what is going on around him in a town to which he moved from Wombourne almost three years ago.

Media Watch: Nick Owen

A Life Touched And Shaped By Billy

In a new series of occasional features, we ask prominent members of the media fraternity – particularly those whose involvement goes back decades – for their Wolves memories. First up is well-known TV personality Nick Owen, now the head presenter on Midlands Today but formerly of Good Morning Britain and TV-am, among others, and, even before that, a sports reporter and presenter on the fledgling BBC Radio Birmingham.

Another Hero Reaches The Big 5 0!

Popular Keeper Is Latest To Celebrate

They both had ‘ordinary’ jobs before striking it big in football, they both made Wolves history – albeit at opposite ends of the pitch – and they were together at the Former Players Association dinner at Molineux last Thursday. Steve Bull and Mike Stowell have things in common. What’s more, each has reached 50 in the last three weeks or so, with Bully hitting the milestone at the end of last month and his long-time mate having his turn on Sunday.

FPA Dinner……Some Reflections

Tales Of Hegan, Sedgley, Gould And Others

For too long, save for a few golf days and the red-carpet Hall of Fame dinners, it has been a question of meeting up at funerals. We can only now hope, though, that the Wolves Former Players Association get-together – once such an eagerly-awaited event on the calendar – is back to stay for the enjoyment of the Molineux stars of yesteryear and their legions of admirers.

Memory Match: Ipswich 2 Wolves 3

How Cullis’s Men Floored The Title Holders

Wolves achieved a significant statistical landmark when they hit back late on to take maximum points more than half a century ago from their trip to face the club they now urgently need to beat at Molineux this Saturday. By winning 3-2 at Portman Road on September 22, 1962, they not only defeated Alf Ramsey’s team of defending champions but also made it five victories in five away games that season.

Double Date For All Stars

May Action For Old Boys

Wolves All Stars have announced two dates for next month as they look forward to the rest of their 2014-15 programme. On Sunday, May 3 (2pm), they will play a game at Hednesford Town’s Keys Park ground in memory of Sophia Gill.

Look East…..The Nerves Are Jangling

Veteran Defender Has Unusual Promotion Race ‘Take’

Dave Woodfield is enjoying a close-up view of the promotion fervour sweeping across East Anglia – while also closely monitoring the fortunes of two of his former clubs near the top of the Championship. The long-time Molineux centre-half now lives near Newmarket but remains a keen, albeit distant observer of the strong challenge Wolves are putting together.

Dear Diary, Entry 42

A Busy Month Of Highs And Crushing Lows

Monday, March 2: Bumped into the long-time former Wolves physio Paul Darby on Newport High Street and we promised ourselves we would have a coffee there soon. Hard to believe that he has been out of football now for more than 20 years and heavily involved in that time in golf.

Colin…….Do You Remember Me?

Now Booth Is The Man In Demand

We are on a real roll as regards being asked to reconnect old friends and now find ourselves trying to relocate Colin Booth for a best mate of his from their National Service days. Brian Holmes is a lifelong Sheffield United fan who has good reason to remember Wolves’ visit to Bramall Lane on the final day of 1955-56.
