Familiar Away Days – But A Capital Return At Last

Has there ever been a run like this? Have Wolves ever had to make so many successive trips to London for away games? West Ham on October 1, Chelsea on the 8th, Crystal Palace on the 18th and, today, Brentford on the 29th mean the squad and their supporters have become very familiar with the M40 or M1.

In-coming….That’s One To Get Rid Of!

Keeper’s Reaction To Penalty Area Raid With A Difference

More information has come to light about the misfortune of a keeper who played one first-team match for Wolves – and around 225 for their next opponents. Chic Brodie’s full-time playing career was ended by a dog – but that was not the only unusual way in which he found himself endangered.

Jimmy Mac – He’s Back!

Fans’ Chance To Book ‘An Evening With…..’

Jim McCalliog has scheduled another Molineux visit as part of the latest tour he has lined up of his former clubs. This one-time golden boy of Scottish football was at Wolves’ home win over Southampton in early September and was planning to travel to the Saints’ clash with Arsenal this afternoon.

In Defence Of The Owls

Side By Side In Stripes

They missed each other by a few months at Wolves and by several years prior to that at Charlton but, in between, Lawrie Madden and Peter Shirtliff became extremely familiar as team-mates. In well over 100 Sheffield Wednesday games, they lined up as joint centre-halves, with cup finals, semi-finals and victories at Manchester United and Liverpool among them.

The Boy Don Good!

Ten Things We Might Have Forgotten About Striker With A Foot In Rival Camps

Don Goodman dreaded being handed the no 9 shirt. “I never regarded myself as the main striker and was as happy to be setting goals up for others as scoring them myself,” he said. “I had not been seen as the centre-forward at Bradford, where it was mainly Bobby Campbell, or Albion. Then, at Wolves, Steve Bull was injured and Graham Taylor gave me the no 9 jersey for a while!”

Reminiscing About Arthur And Eddie!

Barney On His Friends

Wolves v Nottingham Forest……there’s one meeting of the clubs that springs to mind faster and fonder than all others. And, for John Barnwell, 1980 Wembley glory carried the extra significance of being achieved at the expense of his former employers and to the discomfort of the game’s best-known manager.

Encouragement In The Search For Goals And Wins

How The Tide Turned In The Past

We can find no instances of Wolves ever having started a season slower than this one, scoring-wise, so what else can we offer from the past by way of encouragement that 2022-23 will turn out fine? Along with the head coach appointment that we hope might still be imminent, we offer these examples of how and when the club recovered from unpromising beginnings like the one we have been witnessing these last few weeks.

Wath A Day!

Humberside Duo Who Took Very Different Paths

Two or three paragraphs in the Express & Star in the middle of 1964-65 marked their arrival together in Wolverhampton and, for a few more years, they remained close. But the careers of Gerry Taylor and Bob Hatton could hardly have been more different, with one travelling far and wide and the other barely straying from these parts.

Reunited – More Than 50 Years On

Vancouver Meet-Up Was Too Good A Chance To Miss

Yet another of Les Wilson’s former Molineux colleagues can now vouch for his skills as a host. Any number of Wolves favourites have received warm welcomes over the years either at his home in Vancouver or the one elsewhere in the city that belonged to his parents.

Dear Diary Entry 132

Spotlight On The Joy Of ’74

Thursday, September 8: Thrilled to see how well the long pieces I compiled with John Richards on Wolves’ 1974 League Cup final glory turned out in Backpass. Hope the man himself is as pleased when I put a copy of this fine magazine in the post for him.
