A Book With A HUGE Reach

Reporter’s Recollections Of The Highs, Lows, Laughs – And Rows

Wolves Heroes co-owner David Instone is putting the finishing touches to the project chronicling his lengthy career in the Molineux press box. The long-time Express & Star correspondent has written more than a dozen previous books on the club and says that none have been as much fun as this one.

Star Names Still Big In Sweden

It is well chronicled how Wolverhampton Wanderers have been big news in the wilds of Scandinavia ever since a certain Hugh Curran goal in a wintry home win against Sunderland in 1969. But the names of Parkin, Hibbitt, Carr, Parkes, Daley and even Bell live on in Sweden in ways that the players are probably totally unaware of. And it’s nothing to do with the game that made them famous.

Which Clubs Are Going Up?

The Likely Candidates

With the Sky Bet Championship season now into its final third, we have received this offering from one of our occasional writers, Jack McCumiskey – one that shows what the outside world are making of a promotion race that continues to have Wolves at its forefront. Clearly, Nuno’s men are emerging as warm favourites to go up and the bookmakers, who rarely get these things spectacularly wrong, have them best-priced at 1/100 to win promotion, with some even going as low as 1/500.

England Pride For The Simkins

Like Father, Like Daughter – Sort Of!

Darren Simkin is beaming with pride after flying to the continent to see his daughter make her international debut in one of England football’s age group teams. The former Molineux defender was in Switzerland to see 14-year-old Lily to play parts of two games that were the highlight of a week-long training camp for a 30-strong squad.

When The Cat’s Away…..

The Aura Of McGarry – A New Insight

Wolves players from the 1970s aren’t the only ones with tales to tell about Bill McGarry’s disciplinarian ways. And one or two of them are likely to feel like raising a glass to the escapades that members of the Ipswich camp reportedly indulged in before the hard-man boss swapped East Anglia for West Midlands.

Call From The Capital Marks JR’s Big Anniversary

Today marks one significant League Cup anniversary for John Richards and Wolverhampton Wanderers – and we are edging towards another that’s even bigger. It is 38 years ago tonight since the striker’s two goals in the second leg of the last-four tie against Swindon took the club to their last major cup final.

Tears, Laughter, Memories….Farewell, Foz

Huge Send-Off To Much-Loved Molineux Stalwart

“We have a capacity crowd here and I suspect there will be a lot of football analogies today,” the Reverend Prebendary David Wright told us shortly before midday at Bushbury Crematorium. “It is, after all, a game of two halves.” We were to be reminded, especially in the memorial service that quickly followed at St Peter’s Collegiate Church, how much more there was to John Hendley than his love for Wolverhampton Wanderers. But, so close to his heart, it really is the only place to start.

Munich ’58 – Some Poignant Wolves Reminders

Crash Anniversary Has High Significance At Molineux

Today is the 60th anniversary of the Munich air crash – and good reason for us to underline once more the close relationship and rivalry there was in the 1950s between Wolves and Manchester United. It being the sixth of the month, we thought it was appropriate to list six pertinent points here – and then found our research led us to several more noteworthy facts.

Good Day, Mate….Fancy Seeing You Here!

Fond Reunion For Duo Down Under

Bobby Gould is glowing after a magical get-together on the other side of the world with his best football friend. The former Wolves striker met up on his latest extended stay in New Zealand with another man with Molineux connections, albeit one he became close to during their time together at Arsenal 50 years ago.

Dear Diary Entry 76

Tears and Pride, Times Two

Saturday, January 6: Made a point of seeking out the members of John Hendley’s family who were present by special invitation at Wolves’ home game against Swansea this afternoon. Also in Sir Jack’s for a hastily arranged buffet were ex-work colleagues and playing and management friends including Gerry Taylor, John McAlle, Geoff Palmer, Mel Eves, Phil Parkes, Colin Brazier, Steve Daley, Jody Craddock, Kevin Foley and Dave Jones.
