A Hole Lot Of Fun

Ok, it wasn’t quite the weekend’s biggest event in the sport…..but the Wolves’ former players golf day continues to go from strength to strength. Blessed with magnificent weather and a bumper turn-out of Molineux favourites, the Friday afternoon event delivered richly on its more important mission of raising money for deserving causes.

A Spreading Of The Wings - To Scandinavia

Mike Stowell has further boosted his outstanding coaching CV by branching out into international football. The former Wolves favourite, who ended up as one of the most satisfied individuals in the 21,600 turn-out at Tuesday's Carabao Cup clash with Leicester at Molineux, has retraced some of his playing steps by linking up with Denmark.

Premier Class Spells Goodbye To The Fixture Treadmill

So you thought this was a fast start to the season by Wolves? Think some ways, it is among the slowest starts they have EVER made. Not in terms of points on the board, of course - that well-deserved point at Manchester United underlined that they have emerged very impressively from the blocks.

Retreating Quietly? Never!

Full Diary For Bobby

Six months have passed since we reported on the meet-up in Vancouver of Bobby Gould and Les Wilson some three and a half decades on from when they had last been together. Various constraints sadly make a trip to Canada impossible for us at present but we did make it down to the West Country this week and learned in a three-hour visit to the Gould residence that life remains hectic.

Bodell Opens Up On Four Golden Years

We waited ages to catch up with and do proper justice to Norman Bodell but we can promise that the intention to feature him was there long ago. As far back as the day of Dave Wagstaffe's funeral early in 2013-14, in fact, when he rang us and asked for his condolences to be passed on, we were on his trail.

A Well-Deserved Shout-Out For Workaholic Mel

Some time in the next few days, Mel Eves can expect his phone to ring and to be asked once more for the secret of how to bring down Manchester United at Old Trafford. It was he, the small matter of 38 and a half years ago, who struck the goal when Wolves last won at the venue. Each time the side go back there, he is asked for his recollections, how he scored it, how the winning moment was received and such like.

Matt On The March Up 'Honours Board'

Matt Doherty is set to build on his latest taste of international football by accelerating past some familiar faces in one of Wolves' main rolls of honour. The consistent wing-back went on during the second half of the Republic of Ireland's confidence-restoring friendly draw in Poland last night after remaining on the substitutes' bench during the thrashing by Wales in Cardiff on Thursday.

Colleagues Gather To Pay Tribute In Front Of 'Capacity Crowd'

"That's opened your eyes a bit, hasn't it?" said Kenny Hibbitt, microphone in hand, to his two young grandsons soon after 11pm on Friday night. Emotions were, by that advanced hour, running high on the family's table at the front of Molineux's Hayward Suite at the sell-out dinner held in his honour.

Familiar Fixtures Had New Boy In The Headlines

It's not only in the Premier League era - most recently at the Olympic Stadium on Saturday - that Wolves have found a touch of claret to be the perfect tonic. Remember the successive March results at Burnley, Aston Villa and West Ham that did so much to guarantee Mick McCarthy's men survived in the top flight with plenty to spare in 2009-10?

New FPA Role Will Fill A Gap For JR

John Richards is planning to use a scaling-down in his working hours to help his long-time team-mates - and visit more of the spectacular venues like the one at which Wolves won on Saturday. The much-loved striker has been elected as vice-chairman of the Wolves Former Players Association and is looking forward to immersing himself in his first official role with the 30-year-old organisation.
