    Neil, you played in almost every position bar goalkeeper during your time at Wolves, is there any reason why you were never considered for between the sticks - don't you like wearing gloves or something?
    PS - you will need them if you ever visit Franz Josef.

    Although you were regarded as a utility player during your time at the club, what did you feel was your "natural" or favourite position?

    Some questions

    Your Wolves career over-lapped with a fair few recent greats (Bull, Keane, Lescott, Murray, Richards, Curle). Which player/players did you most enjoy playing with?

    How did you feel when you left to join Palace and on your subsequent return?

    What went wrong at the end of the Graham Taylor regime?

    Hi Neil! Hope all is well.

    Similar question to the one above but:

    Who do you think the most underrated player was from your time at Wolves. Or who don't you think got the recognition they deserved?

    Good question!

    Neil, fond memories of your time at Molineux for this Wolves fan - what is your most memorable moment on the pitch? And... were you really as nervous as you looked from the stands on your debut?

    All the best.

    Hi Neil, loved your whole hearted approach when you were at Molineux. I'm interested to know how you ended up in New Zealand and what things you learned from the Wolves managers you played under that you apply when coaching/managing now.

    Can you recall any “One Neil Emblen” chants from your visit to Sydney in ’07 with the New Zealand Knights?

    There was strong support from England in the crowd given that it was an Ashes tour.

    Although you were bought as a centre half, like many others I really enjoyed your 'powerhouse'midfield performances, for example when you and Geoff Thomas were both fit when we beat Albion at Molineux. Thanks for those great memories Neil. Many fans feel midfield has been our achilles heel for decades, so what do you feel was your most "effective" (as opposed to being your favourate) position?

    Hi Neil. Many thanks for your total committment at Wolves, it was a pleasure watching you play.

    After signing from Sittingbourne, you played for Millwall just 12 times in a year.

    But you must have shown your potential, as Wolves snapped you up for £600,000. A sizable fee in 1994.

    Were you recommended to Graham Taylor by one of his contacts?

    How did your move to Molineux come about, Neil?

    Now you are in management yourself, how would you rate the managers you worked under at Wolves?

    I know you are a southern lad, who was your team growing up and who do you watch for these days?
