Poyser: A Man Of Priceless Contributions

Star-Maker Who Ticked Many Boxes

Did George Poyser ever come under serious consideration for the role of Wolves manager? Some might enquire ‘George Who?’ But those who lived through the era will know he had the credentials to be a contender – and had some very favourable connections at Molineux with which to support his case.

A Worldwide Audience

Hibby Thrilled By Wolves’ Broadening Appeal

Kenny Hibbitt has used one of Molineux’s newer amenities to add to the positive messages Wolves’ current players are sending across the globe. The record-breaking midfielder was at this week’s stunning victory over Arsenal, not only helping give a group of fans a pre-match guided tour of the stadium but also making an appearance among users of the flourishing Worldwide Lounge in the Steve Bull Stand.

Cheers Once More To The Class Of ’59

Landmark Week In Wolves’ Proud History

As our own acknowledgement of the fact it is 60 years ago this week since Wolves won the League Championship for the third and latest time, we offer these quirky and/or statistical recollections from the 1958-59 season.

Writings Of A Different Era

Evocative Book Shows How Times Have Altered

Hand in hand with the huge changes the game has witnessed over the decades, it seems the reporting of it has undergone quite a revolution, too. Time was when the Charlie Buchan Football Monthly was one of sport’s foremost publications – it must have been to run from 1951 to 1974 and, for the most part, with massive success.

A Kick Where It Hurts

Doog Delight – But With A Nasty Aftermath

April has already contained one high-profile London trip for Wolves. Another outing to the fringes of the capital awaits with their Premier League game against Watford in ten days’ time. Heading to the south-east in this month of the year might have brought Derek Dougan out in a cold sweat several decades ago as a result of an unfortunate altercation that forms a painful part of Molineux history.

Players Who Just Love Their Clubs

Looking Forward To A Change Of Sports

It’s a big golf Sunday with the US Masters drawing to a conclusion, so now is a good time to cast our minds forward to when some of the Molineux favourites will be pacing the fairways this summer. Steve Daley has today informed us that the main date on the calendar is Friday, September 6 – the day of the Wolves Former Players Association’s annual tournament.

Cup Pain Will Continue – Richards

Final Day Regret Is Still To Come

John Richards fears Wolves’ players will have to steel themselves against more heartache when the FA Cup final comes round next month. Richards was a semi-final loser a staggering four times with the club, once as managing director in 1998, and sympathises now with the squad who he believes are still destined to bring happier days to Molineux.

Crushed!

But Cup Comeback Must Act As A Spur

As a beaten FA Cup semi-finalist and a twice Wembley winner, Barry Powell knows something about the emotions Wolves and their supporters are going through right now. The former midfielder was among the gold and black masses left heartbroken by yesterday’s big turn-around – and can remember the contrasting feelings he experienced when in the club colours more than 40 years ago.

A Watford Blast From The Past

Cup Cave-In Was Harrowing For Popular Defender

In the maelstrom of excitement building up to Wolves’ weekend Wembley visit, most attention has been on past semi-finals, including the miserable showing against Arsenal in 1998. I would like to concentrate on the cup history between Wolves and Watford, though, especially a fifth-round Molineux encounter just over 39 years ago.

Dear Diary Entry 90

Might Banksy Have Come To Molineux?

Friday, March 1: Was flattered to receive a phone call from Central TV requesting a little help with the background information for their coverage of Gordon Banks’s funeral next Monday. What a turn-out that is going to be!
