A Quarter Of A Century Of Getting It Wrong - But Now We Know

A new publication reveals that we have been using the wrong name for decades for a striker Wolves introduced to League football.

You get the impression Mel Eves would have coped as well as anyone in a dressing room with the difficulties of lockdown.

Top 50 Places For Nuno's Golden Duo

Two of Wolves' overseas gems have used English football's restart to make it into the top 50 in the club's list of all-time highest scorers.
