    I really hoped we'd have more response to the Wolves Heroes request for questions you'd like to see put to Mike Bailey.
    Given that the era Mike played in is one that many of us began our Wolves support and remember with great affection, there must be some of you who have something you'd like to hear his views on or memories of?

    Waggy, you're a star! Hopefully more will follow your example.
    Don't forget that Mike did some scouting for Dave Jones... be interesting to know who he watched, if he felt any players were missed by not following up on his recommendations, who did sign for Wolves because of his advice...

    Mike Bailey is a bit of a difficult one, as he was quite reserved and just went about his business and anything insight wise he has told on the those were the days program on Sky a few months back with JR and Hibby.

    So, Mike...

    Mike we believe you did some scouting for Dave Jones it would be interesting to know who you watched and if you felt any players were missed by not following up on your recommendations?
    Did anyone sign for Wolves because of your advice?

    Cheers Shergar.

    Who suggested the question for John Richards about bringing two players with him into the current Wolves side? That would be a good ask for Mike too.

    Ask him why he never got more than the two England caps he gained at Charlton despite an outstanding career. Alan Mullery was in his way - southern bias? Seemed very unfair to me at the time.

    Also why he thinks the club never built on the success of his generation and evdentually nosedived?

    Great man.

    Ask him please if if broke his foot before hitting a scorcing 25 yarder that put paid to manure in the cup or was it after he scored.
    I cant remember after all this time.

    Does he also remember one of the so called "quality" Sunday papers describing him as " looking as though he enjoys a pie and a pint before the game" :top:

    Given his era included a lot of flair players and hard men it would be interesting to know which players he played against were most feared and whether we tried any particular tactics for handling players of skill. Also where he thought our decent crop of youngsters around the period (Knowles, JR, Kenny Hibbitt) ranked against the very best.

    Given we had a very decent side early seventies, what does he think was missing that could have made us title hopefuls?

    That was me. I would be happy for that to be floated to Mike as well. Being a youngster of 38, he was a bit before my era, but a Wolves legend from all I hear

    Ask him:

    'Mike , after you signed for Wolves, did you realise what you were letting yourself in for? Didn't you watch from the stands as Wolves got hammered 9-3 by Southampton?

    Mike Bailey had a very long throw in, did they practice it, as he did not overuse it. Was it preplanned against certain opposition?

    Give him my regards I think he was one of the greatest players to wear the Gold and Black and was Bill Mcgarry as bitter as he looked why did he buy Derek (chopper ) Jefferson from Ipswich he had been his manager there he must have known he was rubbish. :wavey:

    Ok then:

    Please ask Mike if he could take two of his Wolves teammates into the 2010/11 premiership, who would he take, and where does he think they would finish in the league.

    Ta, Oldgold
