Hi all,
Read an interesting article on the history of our great club this week, which I thought I would share with you, (some may already know though) so I've turned it into a quiz question.
During our time at molineux 1889 to date, we have had to play 2 home league games at an alternative venue.

1. Can you name the alternative ground?
2. Can you give the fixture season this occurred?
3. Can you say why this this happened?

Good luck.

Just seen your question Sir Tatton. I believe we were forced to play the Hawthorns around 1919 because of crowd disturbances.

Am intrigued to know.

Sorry Phil only just saw your post, I got it from an express and star edition 2014, below is exact text.
Wolves' popularity grew with FA Cup wins in 1893, when they beat Everton 1-0, then in 1908, when as definite underdogs they overcame Newcastle 3-1.

But, as gates rose, trouble brewed. While hooliganism wasn't a serious issue for the game until the 1970s, Molineux was shut down in 1919 due to crowd trouble.

Tony Matthews's book The Wolves Story revealed the details of the trouble: "Wolves were entertaining Bury.

"Five minutes before full-time with Bury leading 1-0, the referee award a penalty to the visitors. Not content merely voicing their disapproval hordes of spectators invaded the field and made for the referee.

The referee was surrounded, but he somehow evaded the mob and dashed off at top speed in the direction of the dressing-rooms, only to slip over near the halfway line. "

Players tried to protect the referee and the police were called. He was eventually smuggled away. The ugly scenes meant Wolves had to play two 'home' fixtures at The Hawthorns, home of arch rivals West Bromwich Albion.

Phil, we all wish for 90 minutes full forward commitment from Wolves, but this has been rare. The pack are generally sly, slow and containing in the first half and let loose later. Leeds start very fast usually, man to man, in your face. Wolves therefore may unfortunately require patience again. Good team tonight and we say COYW.
