An Audience With Lofty

Mystery Twist Planned In Star Turn-Out

First it was Derek Parkin, then Kenny Hibbitt and, some months later, Steve Bull. Now it’s to the other end of the pitch that Molineux’s corporate spotlight switches. Because of the position he played in and the fact he also had an enduring and highly successful career in America, Phil Parkes did not threaten the top places in Wolves’ all-time appearance-makers’ list that are filled by those other three star names.

Raul Rising Again

Golden Goal Opens Up Way to Milestone

Raul Jimenez is on the brink of becoming only the third Wolves player this century to go through the 50-goal mark for the club. The Mexican’s excellent winner at Southampton yesterday was his first in 11 months and took him to 49 in domestic football since his arrival at Molineux in the summer of 2018.

The Curse Of Spurs

Different Decade, Same Painful Outcome

How many more times are Wolves and their supporters going to be hurt in matches against Tottenham at Molineux? It doesn’t seem to matter whether we are in the 21st century or the 20th, the 1970s or the 2020s. The trend is depressingly familiar.

Greavsie – A Class Apart

Ted’s Appreciation Of Final Rival

“He was something special, the greatest goalscorer I have ever seen” – the words of Ted Farmer following the death at the weekend of Jimmy Greaves. In the spring of 1958, the two of them were the central figures in the FA Youth Cup final that was dramatically shaded, from an apparently hopeless position, by Wolves.

I’m An Injured Winger – Get Me Out Of Here!

Caring Hands Went To Harry’s Aid

Articles about former Wolves players, managers, directors, physios, secretaries and scouts adorn the pages of this website. But this piece about a member of the match-day emergency services team is a first. We wouldn’t have deemed it sufficiently newsworthy for inclusion had it not been for the huge response we recently received when posting the photo (right) on Facebook.

Wolves And The Formidable Red Barrier

New Cup Opened Another Route To Glory

I have this obsession with Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeepers. I wrote a book about them some 30 years ago and these days keep tabs fastidiously on what the current and former keepers are up to. I guess not many folks know (or perhaps care) that there are currently 11 professional keepers at Wolves. Quite how they are all kept happy when there are only three teams to play in, I have no idea.

Spotlight On The Seventies

New Book Promises A Colourful New Look

A new book offering a different and detailed look at Wolves in the 1970s comes out early next month. The publication, which contains several hundred photos and has colour on every page, is written by David Instone and takes readers on a season-by-season journey through a dramatic Molineux decade.

Jimmy Mac……When Are You Coming Back?

Sales Season – And Now the Road Show Moves On

Jim McCalliog today bid a fond farewell to Wolverhampton as he headed south for the next phase of his promotional book tour. The former Molineux favourite and wife Debbie have spent three or four days in the city and attended more than a dozen signing sessions, many of them with question-and-answer sessions attached.

Back On Course

Top Turn-Out As Competition Resumes

After last year’s enforced cancellation, former Wolves players were back in big numbers on the golf course as a series of new reunions helped make their annual competition another excellent day for local charitable causes. Oxley Park, so often the favoured course for Wolves favourites in past decades, was the setting for a turn-out swelled by the presence of several outsiders from other clubs.

Dear Diary Entry 119

Richly Deserved Honour For Rachael

Tuesday, August 4: Much pride around Wolverhampton today when it was announced that Rachael Heyhoe Flint was to have some gates named after her at Lord’s. This is a serious honour for anyone with the background in cricket that she had…she even rang the bell once to signify the start of play in a Test Match at the sport’s spiritual home.
