I'm sure a lot of you have seen this, but I hadn't.
When it’s all said and done, Knowles has always said he has had no regrets and has been perfectly happy which, in spite of his enormous football talent, one’s own happiness and the contentment he has had makes any disappointment Wolves supporters have had a moot point.That 1967 LA Wolves tour made us the first club to win leagues in two different countries, but cost us Peter Knowles.
But then he was always happy with his choices in life, and I guess that's all any of us can ask for.
He was registered into the 1980s, IIRC, which is pretty scary.Peter Knowles had it all. Skill, speed cockiness and boyish good looks, im still aghast why he gave it all up. Did any of you realise Wolves kept his player registration for 10 years after he walked away. I always thought and hoped he would return, but he never did.
Yup I was at that game vs Notts Forest - one of the most bizarre Wolves games I ever saw. Wolves should have been 6 up stead of 3 and you’re right that at the end they were just hanging on.I wasnt at that game, but i remember reading about it in several papers. I was at his last game v Forest. We were 3-0 up and just about hung on for a 3-3 draw. A really sad day all round.
I was at the (a?) game when Knocker sat on the ball, and my memory (bad as it is now) is telling me it was Nottingham Forest too. My first Wolves hero was Knocker - great player and entertainer. I couldn't believe it when he jacked it all in ...Yup I was at that game vs Notts Forest - one of the most bizarre Wolves games I ever saw.

i wasn’t at the game when he sat on the football but my dad was, and I will always remember him coming home after the game, when he was so baffled and amused at what Knowles had done.
