Full Of Fizz – But Not At Wolves

‘Tizer’ Fell Flat At Molineux

More evidence has come to light regarding an exciting talent Wolves had at their fingertips but failed to extract the most from. “We called him Tizer, after the drink, because he was so bubbly. I have always said that while Glenn Hoddle also had two terrific feet, Tizer had the same qualities and could do anything with the ball – but also do things at speed, which Glenn couldn’t.

When Facing The ‘All Blacks’ Meant Something Completely Different

Molineux Duo’s Memories Of Unique Fixture

Wolves’ part in the uneasy introduction of black players into British football is to be given an airing on TV this weekend. Unthinkable and politically incorrect though it now seems in the Kick It Out era , a game was once staged in the West Midlands between a team of white players and a side made up purely of black players.

Awesome Hero Who Revived Shambles Of A Club

Bully The Obsessive Gorged Himself On Goals

You simply couldn’t have made it up. The entire fanciful story stretches credibility to its extremes. Thirty years ago this week, the astonishing adventure started with his debut and this manifestation of a man who became a Wolves legend began to outrageously unfold.

Rewriting That Matt Finish

Epic Reunion Retraces Old Tracks

Matt Forman has finally made it to the Mount Hotel in Tettenhall Wood with his Wolves team-mates – the small matter of 28 and a half years late.

Edwards Inching Towards Record

Wayne Reign Is On Borrowed Time

David Edwards is edging towards another minor slice of Molineux history after his recent accomplishment of an appearance landmark at club level.

England v Scotland Still Huge For Hugh

Goal-Scoring Memories Of Wembley Trip

We at Wolves Heroes remain flattered by the number of former Molineux favourites who continue to seek us out – and by the connections we are asked to make with them. Late last week, the face-to-face interviews we have conducted with Hugh Curran in his adopted home city of Oxford came to the attention of the Glasgow-based Sunday Mail, whose correspondent Gordon Waddell then contacted us in urgent pursuit of the striker’s exact whereabouts as they planned their previews of tomorrow’s England v Scotland World Cup qualifier.

Looking North Once More

Great Scot – We Hope!

Wolves have had English, Irish, Norwegian, Welsh and Italian managers or head coaches in the two decades that have almost passed since a Scot last filled the Molineux hot seat.

Talking On Air

A Wolves Record To Be Proud Of For Top Man At The Helm

Considering he has been busy covering tournaments in Jordan and India even since commentating at the Rio Olympics, we consider ourselves fortunate to have caught up with John Helm. Luckier still to learn that he keeps a meticulous record of every match he has ever reported or commentated on……professionalism that makes his many Wolverhampton Wanderers memories all the easier to tap into.

Dear Diary Entry 61

Airing Some Fabulous Memories

Wednesday, October 5: Talk about feeling old……was greeted by a familiar face from around the city at the spectacular launch night of the They Wore The Shirt book high in the Stan Cullis Stand tonight. He told me that the 34-year-old nephew he had at his side was only eight when the three of us first met when we were flying to Wolves’ 4-1 win at Newcastle on the first day of the 1990s.
