Eddie Was Real Deal

Man City Aren’t Alone In Frequent Madrid Meetings!

Eddie Stuart might have thought he had left the big time behind when he made his exit from Wolves to join Second Division Stoke more than 60 years ago. In many ways he had but memorable days and nights still came his way in North Staffordshire over the following season or two. 

Win Some, Lose Some

Reminders Of A Hazardous Profession

So this is what is meant by the ups and downs of professional football…..For each success story currently being written by Paul Cook, Mike Stowell, Robbie Keane and Neill Collins, it seems there is a much sadder tale of other former Wolves favourites now occupying roles in the dug-out.

Sad Update On 1960s Hero

Prodigious Goalscorer In Care Home

It wasn’t only Wolves supporters who made a hero out of Hugh McIlmoyle. He was a young FA Cup finalist for Leicester, was regarded as one of Scotland’s best uncapped centre-forwards and is immortalised with a statue outside Carlisle’s ground. Now we come to terms with the sad news that he is yet another former player to have been diagnosed with dementia.

Two Of A Kind

Loyal Duo Still Flying High

Clough and Ferguson….two names that will forever be associated with true managerial greatness and the winning of football’s ultimate prizes. Nigel and Darren are two chips off the same block, not in terms of the quality of achievement in the dug-out but in longevity at least.

Billy In A Rare Spot Of Bother

Questions Asked Over Admiration Of Banksy

Long-time team-mate of Phil Parkes he may have been but Derek Dougan was not reticent about revealing that he had tried to persuade Wolves to buy Gordon Banks in the second half of the 1960s. It also seems that Billy Wright’s stainless reputation was once slightly threatened by a separate attempt to take the master keeper away from Leicester.

Dear Diary Entry 150

Exciting Plans In Place

Tuesday, March 5: Can’t say too much for now but have been involved in trying to set up a small tribute event for John Barnwell in the East Midlands. Almost four and a half decades on, it would bear a League Cup final theme – naturally – and take in a player or two from both camps. Hope it comes off!

Wing Twins Relive A Golden Day

Divided-Loyalties Pair In Happy Derby Countdown

Former Wolves stalwarts Tony Daley and Steve Froggatt have warmed up for tomorrow’s big West Midlands derby – with an appearance at a Villa celebration event. The two wingers, who had long spells at Molineux after being brought across the patch by Graham Taylor in the summer of 1994, appeared this week at a function to mark the 30-year anniversary of Villa’s League Cup final triumph over Manchester United.

Serial Winner Savours Latest Triumph

Cook Flying High Once More

Graham Turner was eager for updates on his former Wolves players and said quizically: “And I suppose you’re going to tell me Paul Cook is a strong disciplinarian as a manager!” Turner was by now in the autumn of his career at Hereford, where I had gone to interview him on camera for the 2006 Official History of Wolves dvd.

Poppy Day! Tributes Pour In For Kettering Legend

RIP Billy Kellock

It was brief, with a couple of highlights and an obvious low. Billy Kellock was in and out of Molineux in the space of six months in 1983. His death at the age of 70 this week, though, has brought fulsome tributes in the Northaptonshire town where he lived and settled. Quite simply, he was a Kettering Town legend and was honoured at the Poppies’ home game against Alvechurch this afternoon.

Raising A Glass To Braddy

Tribute Time For Popular Keeper

Further insight into the life and personality of Paul Bradshaw has been shared with us in the countdown to his funeral on Friday. We promised a fuller tribute piece after the sad announcement of his death nearly four weeks ago and are indebted to his good pal, Geoff Palmer, for telling us much more about the man who played behind he and other long-serving Wolves defenders for years.
