    Agreed, would prefer to come by train (Solihull) but may need to drive - anyone know if there are any extra trains available? Could be 10.45pm before it finishes (if ET and Pens)....last train back is 10.50pm.

    You’ve got zero chance of more trains, more likely is less trains late on a Saturday when ‘train crews are unavailable’.

    Saturday is going to be one of those games that if all goes well, we will remember it and look back on it for the rest of our lives. In the same way that some of us oldies still remember magical games from our illustrious past.

    The amount of build up that has gone on behind the scenes to make this occasion very special has been remarkable, so one way or another it will have been a magical night.

    We have to face it though, on Saturday the stakes will be very high for all of us. Lose the game, and it will take quite a while to learn to accept our fate, but win it, and by Heaven it hardly bears thinking about. It will be a night to savour and to cherish for ever, and I know that I for one will be toasting Wonderful Wolves and St. Patrick,in Maghees Irish Bar well into the early hours of Sunday.

    Have a read of this...Wolves 10 year battle with Man U in the fifties...started in the thirties ..and...how Cullis perhaps 'introduced' Buckley Babes to Busby in Italy wartime billets...

    https://www.manutd.com/en/printproduct/detail/in-the-company-of-wolves-man-utd-history-with-wolverhampton

    ....."Of the top-flight titles contested between 1949 and 1959, United and Wolves shared six – three apiece – and finished runners-up on two occasions each. In only one of those 10 seasons did both clubs finish outside the top two...

    ..."Forced to sell to balance the books, in mid-March of the 1938/39 campaign, the last full season before war broke out, Buckley fielded not one, but two teenagers against United. It was revolutionary stuff. Debutant Alun Steen, who scored in a 3-0 success, remains the club's youngest goalscorer, aged 16 years 269 days; in a wartime friendly with West Bromwich Albion in September 1942, Buckley fielded Cameron Buchanan, aged just 14 years and 57 days.

    The term 'Buckley's Babes' was coined – a catchy, alliterative phrase that would be revived on a rather wider basis in these environs around 15 years later. Buckley made Cullis his captain shortly before war broke out and, as Peter Creed, secretary of Wolves' Former Players Association and a friend of Cullis, explains, his wartime billeting with Busby in Italy...."

    One thing I have to commend is the media work from Wolves media team approaching this fixture. It’s nice to see us take it so seriously, it has to be said.

    Honestly I am not anymore or any less excited about this game as I am about any other. More nervous about being sober by the time the game kicks off.

    Oh and there's some rumour we've gotta hold up flags in the South Bank, can someone get mine I'll be there at 07:54pm

    We have one thing in common, love of Wolves. Reading your post, I may be wrong but do you sometimes miss some of the games?
    I went into my local electronic store and asked the young kids how to ‘legally’ stream Wolves games. Young kids know all this stuff....
    Can't have a Wolves bloke missing out, now can we? Please forgive me if I misread your post....enjoy the game.

    There was a big delay with the arrival of the flags,we should have received them Thursday morning,but we didn't get them till 1800 hours on Friday night.Every seat will have a flag on them in the South bank and Steve Bill upper.I was absolutely knackered with my back and ankles after doing those stands and didn't stop any later,so I don't know if the other volunteers managed to do the North bank.If not those in that stand will be given a flag upon entry.If you find that there ay one on ya seat,that will be because the wind of should I say gale,has blew them off.:( Hopefully they will stay in place.;)
