Room To Spare For Melrose - But Not On Payroll

You’ve probably seen the Wallace and Gromit film, The Wrong Trousers. Screamingly funny. For this interviewee, it was a case of The Wrong Boots. Jim Melrose fizzes with enthusiasm and speaks with relish about a career well spent – until he fell out of love with the game towards the end of a journey that lasted way more than 400 appearances and an average of a goal in every fourth game.

Highlights From The National Stage

As a way of filling the void while matches between countries have again taken over from those between clubs, how about these ten sizeable achievements by Wolves players in international football?

We recently revealed that John McAlle had kindly agreed to appear at the November 20 q & a evening in aid of local causes - now the veteran defender has learned that he will have Terry Wharton and David Edwards alongside him at the top table.

Farmer Still Candid In New Interview

For decades, it was as if nobody at Molineux dared to criticise Stan Cullis. Publicly anyway. Amid the gratitude for his huge impact on so many outstanding careers, there had been quiet rumblings from players about the abrasive style that earned him the nickname The Iron Manager - but nothing more.

But Mick's View Was Not The Happiest

Of all the players who have represented Wolves in European competition, Mick Kearns would be well down the list of those who spring to mind. His duty was only as an unused substitute and even that involvement barely seems to warrant a mention in the record books.

Wolves Heroes Lead, The FA Follow!

How flattered we have been these last few days to learn that the FA have adopted a 'magic numbers' system similar to the one we at Wolves Heroes introduced several years ago. Every man ever to have played League football for Wolves has a number in our Afobe to Zyro section, based on chronological entrances to the side.

Popular Defender At Meet The Fans Night

John McAlle has kindly stepped in to join Wolves Heroes' David Instone at a Molineux-themed charity night next month.

Fatherly Pride At Scoring Exploits

Martin Patching continues to feel proud from afar after the impact of his son Cauley Woodrow continued with two goals in Barnsley's surprise draw at Albion in midweek. It would have been nice to report this as a story of hands-on parental support - alas, the 24-year-old's parents did not stay together and a distance was created between the parties.

Full House Saw Wolves Light Up Europe

One of Wolves' biggest post-war crowds was shoehorned into Molineux when the club set a standard they will hope to reach when tackling more East European opposition this week. It was almost exactly 60 years ago that Stan Cullis's side dismantled Yugoslav champions Red Star Belgrade with the sort of powerhouse performances Nuno would love to see from his side against Slovan Bratislava, starting tomorrow night in Slovakia.
