    Wholesome: Wolves helps Polish A Klasa (7th trier) club Wilki Różana (translates as: Wolves Różana). Article translated in comments. : soccer

    Yes it may be a CoinDeal sponsored article but the club and the story is real. I contacted the guy who's running the club. It was founded by his grandfather who was a Wolves fan. The tradition is carried on and supporting Wolves is the culture of the club. The players watch games together on TV when possible and travel to Wolverhampton to watch a game from time to time - they will be at the Liverpool game soon.

    The help action is getting some exposure among Polish football fans and makes me feel proud.

    That's fantastic mate. Great gesture.
    There has always been a large Polish population in Wolverhampton, and this has grown substantially in recent years.
    Even in Whitmore Reans (area by the ground) I often can't distinguish between English and Polish lads - well until they speak of course :)-.
    So much in common. Would be great if many of them started following Wolves whilst they are here, as well as their team in Poland.
    Maybe they already do............

    Good to hear the Polish population integrates well and does not cause trouble. However we miss them badly here in the country. There are too few hands to work!

    I think what you describe in terms of them becoming Wolves fans has already started judging by what I've seen on facebook.

    There has also always been maybe not large but existent and dedicated support located in Poland, dating back to 1970s where some first press (and state bookies...) coverage of English football became available. I've found a few of them over the internet. Also I heard Polish Radio announcer once saying "and the club that has many fans in Poland - Wolves..." while reading the Division One (Championship) in late 1990s.

    Its like all new people to any Country, they gather together. Inevitably. I come across lots of eastern European families in Wolverhampton, mostly Poles. There are lots of Polish shops, a few Polish supermarkets etc, and English people often use them too. There is very little trouble between English and Polish people here, they intergrate well.

    Unlike many previous immigrants (if that is the right word to use), its not always easy to tell English and Polish people apart on looks.
    I find the Poles to be hard-working, probably often to send money back home.
    To be fair, I think the Poles here have settled in well.

    People are generally the same whatever ethnic group they are, but I guess for some its harder to intergrate than others.

    Spread the faith my mate!! Up the Wolves!!

    I have run several factories with a large (25%) population of Polish workers.....ALWAYS hard working, respectful, solid people.
    I am also currently mentoring a Polish student in Wolverhampton University, a great student...

    Really enjoyed my visit to Krakow. Everyone was incredibly friendly.

    Northampton has a large Polish community

    I manage and work with some Polish staff, incredible work ethic. Unfortunately with Brexit on the cards a number have chosen to go home. A great loss

    That reminds me-
    The teacher says to her class who knows how to spell the word weather ‘?
    Johnnie puts his hand up and says’ w-e-v-e r’
    The teacher told him ‘that was the worst spell of weather we have had in ages’

    A Friend of mine married a Polish girl. They're not short of a few quid, so instead of traditional wedding gifts requested everyone bought Xmas gifts for a Polish Orphanage near the wedding venue. Some very lucky Orphans got their hands on Wolves branded footballs. #spreadtheword

    The Poles are very much like us. Enjoy the same pastimes, fundamentally food is the same, enjoy a drink. I think they have bigger heads and like tracksuits more than us, but lots of similarities.
