Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club (known all over the world as ‘Wolves’) is one of the greatest names in soccer history and much has been written about the club
over the years. This collection of over 200 items of memorabilia takes a new look from a variety of angles at a club that twice won the FA Cup before the First World War, and climbed out of the Second Division to become the country’s top club at the outbreak of the Second World War. The team, at times, had an average age well below twenty, but they kept going during hostilities and even captured the League War Cup in 1942.
Yet the greatest days were still to come—nnot least the fabulous Fifties, when the club won three League Championships and pioneered European floodlit football. Incredibly, less than thirty years later, the club almost went out of existence in the dark days of the mid-'98s, only to rise again during the glorious years of Steve Bull.
He followed in the footsteps of other great Wolves names, such as Major Frank Buckley, Stan Cullis and Billy Wright Local lad and experienced soccer writer Geoff Allman
provides the captions for this evocative stroll down memory lane that will provide fans of Wolves with welcome memories and perhaps even the odd snippet of new information.
