Upton And That Sky Blue Talent Drain

To Be Frank, The Doc Dropped Some Right Clangers

Tommy Docherty’s Wolves won only eight Second Division games in 1984-85. One of those was in late October, 2-1 over Crystal Palace, and was followed two days later by the manager dispensing with the services of his no 2, Jim Barron, and youth coach Frank Upton. Jim told me when I interviewed him for my 1992 goalkeepers book, In Keeping With Wolves: “We brought along some good kids. Tommy? He sat in his office and did his after-dinner speaking.”

In 1975, Daly became the 600th man to be given a League debut by the club while the on-loan Caswell clocked in as the 700th more than a decade later.
