Goodbye, Sammy - Talent Spotter Of Repute

Sammy Chapman is not served well by the record books. They show that he failed to arrest the spectacular mid-1980s nosedive and took Wolves into Division Four for the first time. Talk of the best Molineux managers will centre on Cullis, Buckley, Nuno and McGarry and not veer anywhere remotely near his name.

A Highly Powerful XI!

Birthday Time - And We're Still Going Strong

As we at Wolves Heroes move proudly into our 12th year in cyberspace, it's time for some reflections.....When we set out on our journey of discovery at the start of August, 2008, the first two competitive games were away to Plymouth and at home to Accrington. How far the club have come!

Welcome Appearance In Honour Of Trusted Reporter

Peter Knowles has paid a warm tribute to the reporter he selected to break the news of his dramatic retirement almost 50 years ago. Knowles was among the large turn-out at yesterday's funeral of John Dee, the former Express & Star correspondent who passed away late last month aged 83.

Spotlight On Legendary Trainer

Unusual Ways Of Emerging Boss

A little more of what makes Paul Cook tick has come to our attention in the book we wrote about here approaching three weeks ago. We saluted retired physio Ian Liversedge then for his anecdotes about Denis Irwin from the time they spent together at Oldham.

Nuno On Brink Of Stepping Up

We will have great delight later this week in making a new addition to one of the unique areas of this website. That's because Thursday's Europa League return against Crusaders in Belfast marks Nuno's 100th league or cup match in charge of Wolves.

Four Decades On.....A New Name On Our Lips

One by one, the claims to fame are falling. It was in April that Mel Eves lost his tag of being the last man to hit a Molineux winner for Wolves against Arsenal. Last night, he was gently chided for no longer being the last man to score a goal for the club in major European competition.

Slow Start, Then Rod Became A Record-Breaker

History is littered with goalkeepers who have struggled to break through at one club before moving to another and becoming hugely popular.

It's not only in points on the board that Wolves' massive progress has been measured in the last couple of years. Another sure sign of their advancement is the growing carbon footprint they are planting in the earth's soil as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of man first making his mark on the moon.
