Well I've tried looking for it this morning and cor find it anywhere. Unless one of the other Mods has some specific information I can only guess that McDogs did a bit of trimming and filtering at some stage and may have removed it. Don't know why that would be though.

I will send Mr McDogs an email and see if he can throw any light on it.

Getting stoned may not b a bad idea Embers. 8)

Cheers LB. You're a proper mod regardless of what any of the rest might say. 8)

Blast from the past: The European trip of a lifetime for Wolves
They are memories that will always be cherished by supporters of Wolves. Istvan Szoke scored a penalty for Hungarian side Ferencvaros, but Phil Parkes would save two others.

It’s been a staggering 45 years since the men in gold and black reached the final of a European competition for the one and only time in their history, writes Joe Masi.
It was back in 1972 that Bill McGarry’s side enjoyed a fairytale run in the inaugural UEFA Cup. This week marks the anniversary of Wolves taking a giant leap towards clinching a place in that prestigious show-piece.
It was on April 5, 1972, that the Molineux men travelled to take on Hungarian side Ferencvaros in the semi-final first-leg. McGarry’s side had been brilliant in the competition to that point. Comfortable victories were achieved against Portuguese side Academica (7-1), Dutch outfit Den Haag (7-1) and East German team Carl Zeiss (4-0).
Italian giants Juventus were then dispatched in the quarter-finals with Wolves edging a memorable tie 3-2, winning the second leg 2-1 at Molineux.
That set up a trip to Budapest with everything seemingly going to plan when John Richards gave them an early lead. The home side hit back and went into the break ahead after netting twice – with one of goals coming from a Istvan Szoke penalty. When the Hungarians forced a second spot-kick after the interval, Wolves faced the real prospect of elimination for the first time in their European adventure. Cue goalkeeper Phil Parkes, who though initially moving the wrong way, stuck out a big left boot to divert Szoke’s effort away from danger.
Frank Munro then headed a priceless late equaliser to leave Wolves in pole position to reach the final.
The return leg took place at Molineux on April 19 with two young lads by the names of Steve Daley and Alan Sunderland playing crucial roles in a superb victory.
Daley, playing in place of the injured Dave Wagstaffe, put Wolves ahead on aggregate when he scored after just 60 seconds.
Munro added a second before half-time with Wolves now having one foot firmly in the final.
But it took another Parkes penalty save to preserve the advantage. And, when the Hungarians did reduce the arrears, the final stages proved tense as the Molineux faithful became nervous.
Wolves hung on to clinch their place in the final – where they would face a Spurs side who spent the majority of the 1971/72 season sitting above them in the table.
While Bill Nicholson’s men eventually triumphed in the final, memories of Wolves’ fabulous European campaign endure.

I bet a few are de-mob suits! Don't Jimmy look smart far right? Couldn't be anywhere but on left wing even on station platform....

I'm surprised that a couple haven't got a fag on the go, and maybe a crafty bottle of brown ale, for sustinance. I bet their wives had done them all a pack lunch too.

Chatting with ower warn on Saturday, and he said that they used to have a big block of wood,
in the home dressing room, that they used to kick, before the game. Maybe it was cut from the
same tree, as their shin pads :wink:

The current team all give Danny Batths jaw a good kicking before the game.

Also, the club couldn't afford new tracksuits for Barnwell and Barker!

That's ridiculous, where are the rest of the squad, were they still pissed, from the night before?

Good team though, proper blokes, who day dive an blart.

The thing I love about those pics is that ALL the players just look so OLD!! Today's players look like little boys by comparison.

You had to be tough to play at the top table in them there days, our Mr Silvers, and tough buggers usually look older. They carried on until into their 40s as well so no wonder they look old. 8)

Its 63 years in December since Honved

And as for the pre war picture, on a personal level, one man stands out for me Tom Galley
