One For The Anoraks

Wednesday, May 6: A brute of a question for starters.....does anyone know the line-ups from when Wolves recorded a 3-0 Central League win over Coventry on March 31, 1970? Does anyone have a Wolves programme from soon afterwards that might contain the answer?

Ghost Town Thinking Time Offers Dean A Vision

Dean Edwards is making the most of the good bits of lockdown - and wondering whether the changes it has brought on will radically alter our football thinking in the future.

'Looking For Lofty' Mission Pays Off

Embarking on family trees has become a popular lockdown activity and we at Wolves Heroes are enjoying playing our minor part. We were contacted out of the blue by Brian Jackson, a Londoner now resident an hour or so north of where Graham Taylor's Wolves won against Lecce in the Anglo Italian Cup in 1994.

Novelty Night Out For Barney's Wolves

It's not only the big Wolves games we love profiling on this site - and the fixture in question today is very much one of the left-field variety. So much did this particular match fly under the radar that the Express & Star didn't send a reporter or even carry someone else's report of it.

Insight From Germany On Football's Resumption

"If we can create a degree of normality in these very abnormal times, maybe we can give people a lift." And, with that sentiment, Robert Kelly - a late-1980s Wolves midfielder and 1990s Molineux coach - prepares to take his place on the touchline when professional football restarts in Europe this week.
