Alright Ed001 I assume you are from liverpool so just wanted to post my 2 times at liverpool with wolves.
When I was a kid growing up in the 80's liverpool were the best mostly on the once a week live game. I always dreamt one day I will experience the crowd all the flags in the kop the never walk alone song. I got my wish when Mick Mccarthy was wolves manager. we won the game 0-1 Stephen ward scored and standing/ sitting next to me was Stephen Wards dad. it was awesome everything I dreamed of as a kid was exactly how I thought it would be. The liverpool fans we spoke to before and after the game were really sound people.
The second time at Anfield was fosuns 1st year Lambert was manager and we won 1-2 in the fa cup.
When weimann scored our 2nd goal I could not see where my brother was from all the wolves fans going crazy in jubilation when I finally saw where my brother was he was 5 or 6 rows back from where our seats was horizontal on top of the crowd, crowd surfing it was fantastic. the game was an early afternoon kick off and our train wasnt till 7PM so we had a booze around liverpool I met Cilla Black lol her statue outside the famous cavern club I think it's called the cavern. we had a few hours in there as my brother is into music.
Liverpool it was like being on holiday where all the bars are.
Posted my memories as we play liverpool the weekend.

{Ed001's Note - that's great Phil, I would love to say I am happy you got to enjoy the trips but I am too gutted that we lost to you both times!

The Cavern was owned by Tommy Smith for a long while, after it went broke etc.

By the way, not really the Cavern, but as your brother is into music and it does have a tenuous connection to the Cavern he might like this story. Me grandad was always involved in the club scene in the area, from before those days, as he was a stand up comedian/ventriloquist/magician. His best friend from school was a certain Ken Dodd and my grandad organised a big event with a local event organiser to raise funds for the ambulances. Doddy, of course, topped the bill, but the interesting part is the group at 10th on the bill, a little known band called The Beatles. They were due to play before the interval, then do a second set after the interval, but they were so bad on their first set, Doddy said there would be no one left for him to talk to if they went back on. So they sent them packing early and they headed off to do another show elsewhere later on instead. My uncle still has a copy of the bill from the event which has been signed by Doddy, the Beatle that left (something Best, I forget what) and Paul McCartney, who made a point of circling their billing at 10 and writing "not very good billing!!" by it.}

That's Brill Ed I will show my brother your post.
My bro was a bass guitar player back in the day in his local band.
I asked if I could be backing singer or play the tambourine or triangle I can not put on here what they all said but it ended with off.
When we were both there my brother loved it.
Speaking to the liverpool fans they were friendly but really hated Manchester utd.

{Ed001's Note - that's worrying when they won't even let you play the triangle, that's usually what you give to the guy who wants in put it is useless.

Yeah Man Utd does have a special place in the pantheon of hatred, alongside Maggie Thatcher, in Liverpool.}

02 Dec 2020 10:06:20
Lol Ed I'm not ashamed to admit I'm totally tone deaf.
My thing was playing football my dad played football and also into his music.
Have a good day pal back to the grindstone for me.

{Ed001's Note - nothing to be ashamed of, I was never musical either, that's why the world invented DJs, so even those of us who can't make music of our own can get involved by picking the best of other people's.

Take care mate, have a great day.}

My only time to visit Anfield, the season after we went up in the play offs, lost to a hypia header late on if I can recall, brilliant atmosphere that day, pool fans giving ince plenty of stick I recall, brilliant evening after with my dad and brother, drinks, meal and banter.

02 Dec 2020 13:55:19
Tibbsywolf - that is my only game at Anfield as well. It was v v late goal and we had played ok.
As I only saw the ground that day I took wife to Liverpool for weekend away a few years ago and have to say I loved it.
We stayed in the Prem Inn on Albert dock and did the museums, the Cathedrals and a walking tour of the city that went underground to see the old docks before the shopping centre was built etc etc. The "Terracotta Warriors" from China were at one of the museums and were great but the "Museum of Slavery" was the best. We ran out of time to see everything, (missed the Liverpool Museum and the Cavern! ) and would def recommend a long weekend in the city to anyone - really interesting.

02 Dec 2020 14:02:46
ps Phil hope all ok - (your comment in thread below) and loved your memories of Wolves (v v rare) wins at Liverpool.
On that subject I didn't go myself but a work colleague took some foreign relation of his who knew nothing about British football to the game in 84.
Wolves got relegated that year and Liverpool won pretty much everything but amazingly a young lad called Steve Mardenborough scored his only ever Wolves league goal in a 1-0 win and my colleague's relative was apparently convinced my colleague had got the teams the wrong way round!

02 Dec 2020 16:37:51
Hi Thefutureisoldgold all is ok just my brother in brain recovery Jimenez injury bought it home what I see every day.
I posted what I did cus I have always been posting and then didn't reply my thoughts to you the new poster and all the other posters who wanted peoples thoughts.
Always enjoy your posts mate.

02 Dec 2020 16:41:13
You too Tibsy.
Always like reading wolves fans memories on here.

02 Dec 2020 16:59:57
Ed001 I shown my brother your story and he loved it and said nice 1.
Lol my brother told me he saw Ken Dodd at the Civic in Wolverhampton and Ken Dodds set went on and on till 1 am in the morning and had to get a taxi home as his car was locked in at the multi storey car park.


{Ed001's Note - I can believe it. Doddy would keep going so long as the audience were laughing and it was very rare you stopped laughing while Doddy was in full flow. He was the best comedian of all time imo. He is also partly responsible for the sites being started as he would always badger me to get into computers when I was a kid.}

02 Dec 2020 17:17:32
Sound mate it's a pleasure to read your story and for you to read mine.
All the more so with this C.V. not being able to get out and about living your life meeting and talking to new people.
Respect for the brilliant Ken Dodd for how funny he was and for badgering you to get into computers.

{Ed001's Note - cheers Phil, it is always good to chat with you mate.}

There’s a link on the official wolves web site, to send messages, get well wishes etc, to our number9, Raul. The club are guaranteeing all messages will be delivered to him,

01 Dec 2020 17:23:12

01 Dec 2020 18:01:07
I have sent my message to Raul.
Thanks for posting the link Lowwolf. πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘Š.

01 Dec 2020 12:41:04
I can't believe what i'm reading one or two slating Silva!
Give the lad a chance he is only 18 moved to a new country, playing in a tougher league, his first proper run out in the Premier league, he will come good for us.

01 Dec 2020 14:39:06
Silva came on in difficult circumstances against Arsenal and played well. The team scored twice in the 1st half, Arsenal were chasing the game so Nuno threw on an extra defender (there's no point playing attacking football if the opponent permanently has the ball), we won, go 6th in the table 4 points off the lead and still some are questioning Nuno.

01 Dec 2020 15:43:06
Jas I don't read the rubbish posts, as soon as I see which way it's going I just miss it out. What's the point of sticking the knife in, he's just kid who played really well. He's going to have to share the job until Raul gets back, so they better get used to him.

01 Dec 2020 15:52:58
Could do worse than give Leigh Griffiths his last chance to make the big time, still only 30.

01 Dec 2020 17:21:07
No thanks Oxley, he burnt his bridges would rather we recalled Cutrone.

01 Dec 2020 17:33:55
It shows the faith Nuno and his team have in Silva to throw him in the deep end against arsenal.
There are ready established strikers who are signed for big big money and are fazed by the pressure of the price tag.
Silva only 18 years old held is own.

01 Dec 2020 18:38:19
My biggest concern regarding Raul is the mental health aspect. Ryan Mason retired and Petr Cech wore a helmet. Will he be committed to attack crosses again?

01 Dec 2020 18:41:52
Hi Phil, No problem with Fabio Silva hopefully he will come on leaps and bounds.

Jas yes we are 4 points off top, BUT 2 silly draws, and we would have been TOP.
You cannot defend a 1 goal for 20/ 30 mins as we have seen how many times have given a last minute goal, I am not moaning We have to be more positive when we get in front.

01 Dec 2020 19:23:06
Hi Yellowstone yeah I think with a Β£35 million price tag it must be a lot of pressure on his young shoulders.
When the details of Jimenez fractured skull is revealed then we will see what the club will do.
Head injuries for his mental health as you say ragingbull is of concern.
I get also the concern of defending a 1 goal lead but I think it's more of a catch 22.
A few of late goals conceded have been from set pieces eg Newcastle free kick.
I think the team will be really inspired to get wins for Raul whilst he recovers.
Not sure about Griffiths Oxley his temperament is the issue I see with him. Griffiths does know where the back of the net is but could he do it in the premier league.

01 Dec 2020 19:31:53
I haven't posted much since the arsenal match for personal reasons.
I always like to reply to posts.
Welcome all new posters,
When the wolves go marching in.
Oh when the wolves
Go marching in

01 Dec 2020 21:48:29
Not Griffiths he isn't a Nuno type of player anyway and top 6 is above his standard he didn't like it here last time anyway

Cutrone could yet return but not if he's only going to get homesick again.

01 Dec 2020 22:00:49
Griffiths! I agree with Cutrone, if he wants to return to the premier league that is, it might also give the club a chance to recoup some nore of his transfer value if he succeeded. Looking at the new transfer rules it may be difficult to sign a potential Neves or Jota again so we seem to be looking at experience or expensive home grown but unproven players, once again rules that seem loaded towards the bigger clubs!

02 Dec 2020 13:02:11
Giroud on loan until the end of the season. Ticks every box. Needs to play to get in the French Euro squad. I don't see a downside. Unless Chelsea won't let him go which would not surprise me one bit.

{Ed002's Note - If Giroud wants to go in January then Chelsea would not stand in his way. He won't be moving to Wolves and certainly not on loan.}

02 Dec 2020 16:25:36
Ed002 I'm well aware it won't happen. I just happened to be on my wish list. We can dream can't we! To be fair most of my dreams are not football related!

{Ed002's Note - Men with beards?}

Bit of positive news Jimenez has tweeted he will be under observation.

30 Nov 2020 20:58:04
We got Crystal Palace in third round of FA cup at home.

30 Nov 2020 20:04:26
Do we think it's fair that there will be fans in some tier 2 stadiums very soon, ie Liverpool v us, as a good experiment, or is it unfair on clubs in tier 3?

30 Nov 2020 20:59:58
Will 2000 fans make any difference?

01 Dec 2020 21:52:52
It will encourage more to stick to the rules and get moved to tier 2.
