In came Ivan Cavaleiro, fresh from the glitz and glamour of Monaco. As if that wasn't enough, the real revelation from that transfer window, Helder … Continue reading Signing on the Jot-ted Line
Well that's it then isn't it? Crisis averted. We are nothing if not an emotional bunch, us Wolves fans and despite what people might tell you, this victory was very, very welcome for our hearts, minds and non-grey hairs.
