80 years since Wolves and England legend Billy Wright’s debut – the match he forgot!

By Steve Gordos Today marks the 80th anniversary of the first senior Wolves appearance by a 15-year-old who would become a football legend.

The match came just three weeks after war had been declared and the Football League programme abandoned. The match was an eight-goal thriller, Wolves coming from 2-0 down at half-time to win 5-3. Yet, amazingly, it seems not to have stuck in Billy Wright’s memory. According to books written by Billy,…

Nuno Espirito Santo has told Wolves their first-half display is the benchmark after they earned a 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace. Wolves earned a well-deserved point at Selhurst Park as Diogo Jota cancelled out Leander Dendoncker’s 47th-minute own goal at the death for a 1-1 draw. The Portuguese’s strike in the fifth minute of time added on ensured Wolves ended their run of three straight defeats after Joel Ward’s 47th-minute deflected shot seemed to have sentenced them to a fourth straight loss. Head coach Nuno is convinced the performance in the first 45 minutes, when they created numerous chances, is…
