    in attendance on Wednesday. Highest of the season and so would I be correct in thinking it would have been a record crowd with the ground in its current configuration?

    I think someone needs to start an Attendance Clappers Anonymous group.

    Out of interest does anyone know the crowd split between the stands in those days? I know we were almost squashed to death in the North Bank and the South Bank reached to the sky but the 2 side stands would not have held that many?

    I was in the Molineux St for a few years from 1966 and it seemed there were thousands in there too, but of course there were not, it's perception you have as a child

    On 4 November 1950 (I was 7) I stood in what is now the Family Enclosure in a crowd of 55,648. We lost 1-0 to Arsenal. If I recall correctly the pitch was higher than the front part of the enclosure. It was first time I saw us lose.

    That's right. I remember standing at the bottom of the South Bank in the mid 60's with my Dad and when you are young your head would be at pitch level :)

    Yep. Many times in a 55,000 crowd in the 50s before the capacity was reduced. My highest ever was Wolves v Spurs, April 23rd 1960, crowd of 56,283. I think it was the fourth highest ever attendance, exceeding the then official capacity of 55,500

    That's right was the same North Bank end. Players would sometimes end up in the `moat as the touchline was so close. Remember opposition players being hindered trying to get out the moat to waste some seconds if we were winning!:D

    Surely the South bank was bigger than the Kop MAWS?
    Think the Kop held about 20,000.
    I thought the 2 biggest ends were the South Bank and the Holte End. Both held around 30,000.
