Milestones Lining Up For Nuno

Nuno Espirito Santo has known only plaudits since he arrived at Wolves three summers ago but how many landmarks can one manager be heading for at the same time? Yesterday's third successive Premier League victory has underlined this as a very real chance of the club securing their highest top-flight finish for exactly 40 years.

And Why The Doog Needed An Audience

As today is the 13th anniversary of Derek Dougan's death, we have come up with a few recollections of just why he was a photographer's dream. No Midlands player of the 1960s and the first half of the 1970s seemed to have his face in the papers more often, the on-field antics of the long-time Wolves no 10 having much to do with that.

Kenny Back (Sort Of) In The Match-Night Routine

Kenny Hibbitt is relishing the prospect of following his beloved Wolves back into the Premier League arena. The former Molineux midfielder loved every minute of Saturday's impressive comeback victory at West Ham and has his own first match of restart tomorrow when he reports for duty at the Leicester v Brighton clash.

Wolves' Fleeting Misery Portrayed In Oils

Adama Traore's late goal at West Ham last season is one Wolves fans have only happy memories of - and not just because it is the only one their club have scored in their last three trips to take on this Saturday's opponents. The Spaniard's venomous strike secured the first Premier League win of Nuno Espirito Santo's reign and also provided an appetising glimpse of the potential of a player supporters can't wait to see in action again as we emerge from lockdown.

Victory At Last In Name Game

When I was a youngster, I would spend hours on end poring over my stack of Wolves programmes. My favourite feature was “Wolves Matches and Teams”, which was on the next-to-last page and in which the teams were set out from the previous week’s games from the first through to the fourth team.

Question Time For Reluctant Star

Interesting footage has surfaced of Peter Knowles taking part in a q & a session. The Molineux idol is seen in a shirt and red tie as he is interviewed by two young lads in front of what appears to be a small invited audience.

Bert Reflected On His Reassuring Protector

Nothing pleases us more than to be contacted by long-lost friends or family members of Wolves favourites, so we have been delighted to hear much more during lockdown about 1940s and early 1950s Molineux stalwart Angus McLean. We have written at considerable length twice before about the Welshman with a Scottish name, which is how this follow-up came about.

Cullis Selflessness Struck Poignant Note

Wolves were already more than a month into their latest reign as FA Cup holders 60 years ago. Their League season was over - very nearly a double-winning one as it happens - and their players, if not going off on international tours, were probably thinking of heading with their families to Devon, Weston-Super-Mare or Clacton.

One For The Anoraks

Wednesday, May 6: A brute of a question for starters.....does anyone know the line-ups from when Wolves recorded a 3-0 Central League win over Coventry on March 31, 1970? Does anyone have a Wolves programme from soon afterwards that might contain the answer?

Ghost Town Thinking Time Offers Dean A Vision

Dean Edwards is making the most of the good bits of lockdown - and wondering whether the changes it has brought on will radically alter our football thinking in the future. The former Wolves striker has noticed the effects of the stay-at-home orders more than most as he lives on the holiday trail in Torquay.
