Bailey Book Is Here For Christmas

With good festive timing, the book chronicling Mike Bailey's stirring football career - with Wolves, in particular - is now available. The 256-page soft-back is a substantial effort, owing much to the research skills of Clive Corbett, who had already made a considerable mark in literature about the club with Those Were The Days and Out Of Darkness publications.

Secrets Of How Our Targets Are Tracked Down

Charles Bamforth's extraordinary detective work and persistence have secured another overseas 'capture' for Wolves Heroes. You might have thought that living and working in California would be a substantial barrier to his ambitions of tracking down some of those he relished watching in his past life as a Molineux regular.

How Darren Bounced Back From Molineux Rejection

Darren Wright might have a declared birthplace of West Bromwich in March, 1968 but the former full-back is decidedly old gold. I say that from his football loyalties and also suggest it is because of his devotion to pursuing the right and proper, no matter what.

Head Coach Has Taken That Well-Trodden Path North

It isn't compulsory for those with their eyes on being at the Molineux helm to be former Watford managers, coaches or players - but it seems it helps! A look at the Managers section on this website reveals the firm connection between the dug-outs at Wolves and Vicarage Road, exemplified by the case of Kenny Jackett.

Wayne Pain At Missing Out

We at Wolves Heroes have told before how Wayne Clarke said no to Brian Clough in favour of making it big at Molineux - now we can reveal a second rejection to Ol' Big Head. The programme for the Wolves v Leeds top-flight game 37 years ago tomorrow refers to the striker having been earmarked for a trip to the Canaries that autumn with an England youth team then managed by Clough.

Ron On His Experiences Against Powerhouse Duo

England's testing mid-November double-header has conjured up mixed memories for Ron Flowers. The 49-cap Wolves wing-half made his international debut against Tuesday's Wembley visitors France - in the city tragically rocked by more atrocities last night.

Where Social Climbing Isn't Enough

Mel Eves has spoken of his awe at working close up with the Frenchman who has been lighting up his early November nights. But the foreign visitor has nothing to do with the former Wolves forward's chosen sport - in fact this astonishing character is more likely to be seen climbing the walls of Molineux than gracing the famous turf.

Anniversary Of A Brilliant Career Being Sadly Wrecked

Much though we love seeing old photographs of grounds heaving with capacity crowds, it's tempting to look back and wonder, on this Remembrance Day, whether the club's history might have been richer still had health and safety been a recognised concept during Wolves' glory years. It was 60 years ago this weekend that Roy Swinbourne chased a routine ball to the byeline in the tight confines of Kenilworth Road during a game against Luton.

Bob Coy pulled out of football coaching when he decided the youngsters under his control were less committed than he was. But, despite no longer even going to games, professional or amateur, he still sees plenty of diving - and even partakes in it!
