    Wolves 0 - 1 Preston. Boxing Day 2000.

    The game that cost me my season ticket. Fucking atrocious.

    Yeah, I'd noticed that too. They seem to all be in agreement that tactically and as a coach he was superb but his man management was appalling.

    Seems that spreads to every player he managed (except for T Sheringham). G-Nev praises his coaching ability and his vision was streets ahead of others (who else would have the vision to play Cort on the wing and get him putting high crosses in for Ganea) but slates his man-management

    Our players that probably wouldn't have liked him:

    - Ganea (no probably about it, go on Vio)
    - Gyepes (for forcing him to play with an exploded knee)
    - Cameron (chucked him out on loan to Millwall and was actively looking to get rid of him all the way through)
    - Bischoff (signed him then only used him as a makeshift RB, and not very often)
    - Frankowski (shitty tactics and no plan meant he missed out on a World Cup)

    Not exactly a high baramoter but to say Gazza doesn't hold him in the highest light in his autobiography would be an understatement.

    I think it was Teddy Sherringham, who tore into him too.

    Basically a "never meet your heroes" piece on how he looked upto him and then when he finally met him be was a colossal cunt.

    Great read as always.

    I'd like you to cover any game featuring Darren Ferguson or else Barnsley 0-5.

    That Barnsley game was another bizarre one. We seem to have the odd one where literally everything that could have gone wrong did go wrong!

    Good read that Dan. How about either the Luton debacle that saw the end of Stale or Lambert's 1-0 win over Rotherham. The only time I've seen the team booed off after a win. And also the only time I've ever booed the team off. And I've seen some proper shite in my time.

    Cheers guys - I'll try to get another one up tomorrow. Just been trying to sort some shit out since Monday, obviously I don't actually have an income at the moment I think I'll be ok in the short term which puts me in about as good a boat as you can be in right now.

    I still haven't had chance to read the last one! Kept the window open as a reminder. Planning on doing so at the weekend (trying to limit screen time during the week). Something to look forward to as well!
    On matchdays, I reckon it'll be a long time before my name is darlowolf...

    Following a brief discussion on the Lookback thread, Law's Bus has very kindly updated the blog he wrote some years ago on the John Ireland Stand/receivership crisis of 1982.

    Very good and objective which makes a change
    Why they will qualify: Nuno Espirito Santo is actually a tactical genius.

    Interesting article - despite all the shit of the early 80s and almost going out of business, if we hadn't have dropped so low we would probably have never employed Graham Turner or signed Steve Bull

    Been mostly absent for a couple of months - a number of high priority issues caused by COVID-19, but all pretty well sorted by now.

    Just caught up with the latest blog - The Perfect Storm of 1982 - an outstanding read and analysis !

    The 1979/80 team was the last time, until now, we had a really good team, but albeit it was a one-off - I've read and heard from numerous people that it was a team that worked for one season but fell away quickly after that - relegation within 2 seasons.

    You really have to go back to the early 70s for a team that was good and strong for a number of seasons - ie near enough 50 years ago !
