Wolfie documents his journey through life.
I have mentioned this before, but it never hurts to go on about the same thing until someone listens to you. So: Josh Ritter is the best living singer songwriter. In fact, the best singer songwriter full stop. He’s got a new EP out, which is definitely worth a listen. These are b-sides and rareties, [...]
Well, as I’m sure you all will have noticed, I’ve been away for a bit. In that time I managed to miss (writing up, not watching, the internet being a wonderful thing) two very fine Wolves victories indeed, one ignominious defeat and a pretty poor score draw against Doncaster in the Cup. Also, no transfer [...]
You might remember a recent performance of a football anthem written by Elgar (reported on Wolves.co.uk). Elgar was a fan in the late 1890′s Wolves had just enjoyed their first FA Cup win, in 1893, wearing not the club’s more familiar ‘old gold’ but their favoured toffee-coloured strip. In 1898 Elgar was inspired to write [...]
The Black Cat’s logically chose cats – who are black – for the mascots, resulting in the mythically unattractive Samson and Delilah. Name: Samson and Delilah DoB: unknown Pun Value: 0 Charm: 4 Machismo: 4 Weirdness factor: 8 Overall mascotspotter rating: 4 Trivia: The mascots are (not obviously, even when you look close up) black [...]
Arsenal’s mascot is a long-necked dinosaur, not unreminiscent of our own Stefan Maierhofer. For all his weirdness, he has a certain quirky charm. Name: Gunnersaurus Rex DoB: August 1993 Pun Value: 5 Charm: 5 Machismo: 6 Weirdness factor: 9 Overall mascotspotter rating: 6 Trivia: Gunnersaurus Rex is a well documented but disturbingly squeaky clean mascot.

There are reasons for this, but it’s best not to enquire too closely… P.S. This does not make my views on Stephen Ward any less valid.
Delightful visit to Milton Keynes (or ‘MK’, as the too-cool-for-skool local planners would have it) today. Took a little time out to visit the renowned (and surprisingly deformed) concrete cows. I am pleased to say I make a couple of good friends with whom, I hope, I will correspond in the future. In researching the [...]
This was less a game of two halves, more a game of one referee. Without wishing to distract from the inadequacies of Wolves performance today, this game was stifled by a referee who lost control within the first ten minutes. Wolves were barely able to string three passes together all game, and the ref did [...]
Wolves’s next opponent Everton’s mascot, Changy the Elephant, is inventively named after their main sponsor ‘Chang Beer’. There may be a reason he’s an elephant, but I wasn’t interested enough to find out. If anyone knows, answers on a postcard to the usual address please. He replaced the much more idiosyncratic ‘Mr Toffee’. Touchingly, Mr [...]
