Wolves hand on proud record – but who can match Jimmy Mullen’s amazing contribution?

Wolves handed a proud record on that has lasted for more than 64 years after Leicester’s amazing 9-0 win at Southampton – but it exposed a giant contribution from Molineux legend Jimmy Mullen. Up until Friday night, no team had overtaken the milestone that Stan Cullis’s side achieved on September 3, 1955 when they beat Cardiff City 9-1 to register the joint biggest away win in top flight history. Wolves were already in excellent scoring form prior to their record achievements in south Wales. At Ninian Park, Wolves equalled Sunderland’s victory against Newcastle at St James’s Park from 1908 after…

Kenny Hibbitt exclusive: Brother Terry could have been a Wolves player

Kenny Hibbitt has revealed there could have been a Hibbitt at Wolves five years before he signed – his late brother Terry. The 68-year-old Molineux legend says a Wolves scout came calling at their house in Bradford in 1963, leaving them ‘gobsmacked’ when he offered the youngster a pair of boots to entice him to Wolverhampton. But it clearly wasn’t enough to persuade the teenager to move to the Midlands and sign for Stan Cullis’s side, as Terry joined Leeds shortly afterwards and went on to have a fine career, becoming a hero in two spells at Newcastle – where…

Saiss hails Nuno’s tactical changes which sparked Wolves’ turnaround

Romain Saiss hailed Nuno Espirito Santo’s tactics as the key behind Wolves’ comeback win against Slovan Bratislava. Trailing 1-0 at half-time, boss Nuno tweaked Wolves’ 3-5-2 system by introducing Adama Traore for Patrick Cutrone and pushing Morgan Gibbs-White further forwards as a left-sided attacker in a 3-4-3 formation, and it worked as the visitors forced the Slovan back in their third Europa League Group K tie. Morocco international Saiss cancelled out Andraz Sporar’s opener with a 25-yard drive before Raul Jimenez sealed Wolves’ fifth straight away win in Europe to preserve their 100 per cent record on their travels on…

They also made it seven matches unbeaten in all competitions, but had to do it the hard way after second-half goals from Romain Saiss and Raul Jimenez overcame Andraz Sporar’s opener. Wolves also finished the game with 10 men after substitute Diogo Jota…

Saiss and Raul silence sell-out ‘behind-closed-doors’ crowd in Wolves win

Slovan Bratislava 1 (Sporar 11) Wolves 2 (Saiss 58, Jimenez 63). Wolves came from behind to make it back-to-back Europa League wins with a second successive Euro victory on their travels. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side followed up their three points at Besiktas by winning again by the odd goal at a partisan ‘behind-closed-doors’ tie at Tehelne pole stadium to go second in Group K.

Then they…

The game is a behind-closed-doors but under…
