A Happy Rewriting Of HistoryA Merseyside-based Liverpool fan has expressed her heart-felt thanks after we were able to provide her with some career details about the grandfather she never knew. Dave Parker was a Wolves player before and during the Second World War and was reported in much earlier Molineux literature to have been killed during the conflict.
Within Touching Distance Of A Club RecordHaving recently written how Wolves very rarely leave anything to chance when winning promotion and possibly a title, we can now add some clearer historical perspective to their electrifying progress to the Championship crown they secured in style at Bolton yesterday. Already, this easy-on-the-eye side have blown out of the water the previous highest points total the club had ever achieved at this level - the relatively modest tally of 90 under Mick McCarthy in 2008-09.
Candid Thoughts Of Managerial Duo"Go for a night out with my team-mates? I don't like them!" It's not what you want to hear from inside your club but it came tonight from the horse's mouth about one of Wolves' promotion winners. Not, we're glad to say, one of the current heroic breed but a member of the squad who made the same transition from Championship to Premier League in 2003.
Promotion A Clear-Cut Business - As UsualFor all the frustrations and at times impatience that come with following Wolves, one thing is reassuringly obvious: when they do click, they get it right in a big way. Here's something for starters.......the club have now won five titles in 30 years. Ok, this one has not mathematically been secured but the combination of results required to deny them is so freakish as to be virtually irrelevant.
Ecstatic Dashes Are Nothing NewSome dramatic and very late news is coming through......David Pleat is facing a charge of disrespect for running on to the Maine Road pitch in celebration of Luton's dramatic escape from top-flight relegation in 1983. And Bill McGarry has been cited for not showing any class after daring to race on to the Wembley playing area in pursuit of his heroic birthday-boy goalkeeper at the end of the 1974 League Cup final.
Molineux Return For Star WingerAlan Hinton makes a sentimental journey back to the home of his boyhood dreams this week - on a visit from his base on America's west coast. The former left-winger is over here on an extended stay and will be attending Wednesday's Wolves v Derby game in the fervent hope that he is watching two clubs who will climb side by side into the Premier League in the coming weeks.
Promotion For Dashing Dubliner We are using the day of Matt Doherty's anticipated return from suspension for the big promotion clash at Cardiff to elevate him into the Legends section of this website. The Irish defender recently went through the 200-game barrier with the club and is currently 84th in the all-time record appearance makers' list at Molineux.
