NUNO HAD A DREAM
Nuno had a Dream "Yeah" and he is making all ours wet ones...
One stand open?
Link to a great Bully interview at the bottom of that article too.
Loved that article. The guy gets it.
And my mom says “oooh, I love Nuno” in the same voice she uses to talk to the cats
I’m sorry but that’s ****ing outstanding!
What a brilliant piece.
Yes, that's how it feels right now.
Perfect article. Sums up how i feel and i reckon all my old mates too
Someone should show nuno that... really good piece.
'Nuno exploded with rage because a 20 yard ball went sidewards instead of backwards...' thought it was a typo at first!
I like Mundial, it's a really good quarterly magazine. Football mixed with a bit of humour and a bit of fashion stuff that I either can't afford/wouldn't be seen dead in.
Yep! For a brief period only the Steve Bull was open. They sorted out the South Bank but the other 2 remained closed until redevelopment.
Wow that just about does it for me- what an excellent summary of 2018 and Nuno.
Pedantic perhaps but what is now the Steve Bull was called the John Ireland stand then. I know that closure of the South Bank was threatened (see link) but did it ever actually happen?
Me too, it's well put together. When Saturday Comes is usually a good read too.
That's what l thought (and l was there) but George Berry's Afro implied otherwise so l was after more info...
Gonna pop down to WH Smith and buy the latest issue of Mundial. See if it's worth a subscription.
John Ireland was open but miles away from the pitch. South Bank remained open.
North Bank and Waterloo Road (Family Enclosures) were closed.
Made it an eerie atmosphere..
Dark days but also nostalgic for the supporters who went through these times.
Yup, that l remember.
Just to clarify and I'm always open to correction.
As we dropped down the Southbank was open with a no-mans-land, the John Ireland miles from the pitch and the away fans on the right (facing the pitch).
When the Stan Cullis was being rebuilt and the pitch moved across. Home fans were then on the right of the South Bank and away fans on the left.
Then we only had two stands for another season with the Stan Cullis and John Ireland stands open.
There were several seasons where the John Ireland and South Bank were it, with two other closed and increasingly derelict stands.. You are right about the sequencing when Sir Jacks' rebuild took place.
The folk in the South Bank couldn't see the folk in the John Ireland, and vice versa. It was all a bit weird back then, a right ****ing mess we got ourselves in! Take a bow Harry Marshall!
MGW - didn't realise Stafford was part of Wolvo! Seems it's not just Raj of Talksport infamy (according to him Wolves played Tottenham at Wembley in the 1968 Fairs Cup Final) who distorts facts, due to excitement.
The rot had started before Marshall. The old Molineux Street stand had been let get into such a state that it was condemned before he became Chairman. When you consider just how low safety standards were then...
My old man, before he passed away, reckoned that Wolves were the richest club in football in the 50s. He always questioned where the cash had gone (or more accurately into who's pocket)...
One stand & one terrace.
Fantastic article. Spot on.
