    Peter Knowles but we could not match his release fee from the Jehovah's witnesses.

    Yep, Wolves 3 Man U 1, 28 September 1957. The day before my birthday -- it was probably a treat from my Dad, as at that age he didn't take me to every home match.

    Other strikers.....
    Clive Mendonca
    Paul Kitson

    Being left footed I admire left wingers and wish we'd have gone for Matthew Etherington whilst at Peterborough. Bobby Convey at Reading too and Peter Whittingham.

    I'd take Aden Flint at CB now. I've seen him at Alfreton, Swindon and Bristol City his goal ratio is brilliant for a CB.

    That Flint looks a big lad on the pitch

    I really liked Mendonca too. I remember BBC doing a thing about 10 years ago where fans of all the current 92 sides voted for their top 3 best ever players. I'm pretty sure Mendonca was the only player to get into two teams top three (Grimsby & Charlton).

    Ashley Williams, back when Swansea were in the championship. I think it was the season we got promoted with Mad Mick.

    Peter Shilton who was available for about 200K in about 1974 from Leicester. He went to bloody Stoke!
    Another one is Derek Statham who went to St Edmunds School and played for Wolverhampton Schools. He apparently had a very decent career somewhere else.

    Knew him only through a mate who also played for Wolverhampton Schools - and it was a long time ago. You may well be right. It was definitely a Catholic school.

    He came from Low Hill if I remember correctly and St Chad's was just round the corner .

    Not one I ever considered would join us but I remember when we got promoted to the PL in 2003 the headlines about us being about to sign Baggio. I almost pooed myself with excitement until I realised it was Dino not Roberto!

    Paul Merson. Always wanted him at Wolves and what a player he was for Pompey. Also wanted Paul Walsh when he was at Pompey. He always played really well against us. Anyone else remember Jamie Pollock? Another player I would have liked in our midfield back in the 90's. Always used to like Steve Stone as well.

    Bit of a one-season wonder. That was a bit earlier I think, because his missus was a teacher at my school when I was about 6 or 7. Very large bristols! Even at that tender age I was impressed!

    He brought my house a few years ago was such a nice bloke and his Mrs was a lovely too. Told me he had a big bust up with Cullis after being spotted having a few beers too many one night and there was only one winner there!

    Paul Walsh was awesome in the early 1980's. I am sure he absolutely destroyed us down the molineux in one game but I am not sure if he was at Luton or Liverpool at the time.

    Yes, he was a very good player. People wondered at the time why he was suddenly sold after starting with such a bang. In those long-gone days before the 24/7 news saturation we have now, things like that just happened at the club without any explanation sought or given. What you have said about him being caught boozing by Cullis -- that didn't come out at the time, I don't think. News to me!

    Had a few lovely chats with him during the time they were buying our house. He signed my Wolves book that has all the games/players/scorers in as there is a picture of him at the bottom of page covering 56/7.
    Always remember him telling me that he was on a hat-trick and had his penalty saved by Nat Lofthouse! I said how come he aint a keeper and Harry told me he was in the second half of that game. They moved from Mersea to North Norfolk a while ago with their daughter.

    Before he moved to Brentford there was talk of Scott Hogan. It should have been a no brainer.

    This was the one I wanted and if we'd got Peter Reid as well, we'd have had a hell of a team. Barnwell and Barker knew what they were doing. Exciting times and then the car crash followed by our crash.

    Ray Parlour. Knew we would never get him but thought he was so underrated when I was a kid.

    Always been obsessed with foreign football since the early 90s, and there have been so many players I've wished Wolves could have got hold of. Some realistic, others not so much. I could write 20 pages full, but here are a few:

    All Benarbia
    Mario Yepes
    Dario Hubner
    Tomas Locatelli
    Hidetoshi Nakata
    Cirio Sforza
    Vladimir Jugovic
    Alexander Mostovoi
    Marco Di Vaio
    Yegor Titov
    Stephane Chapuisat
    Antonio Di Natale
    Christian Worns

    Current player: Luka Zahovic, Maribor.
