    I hope you are saying that tongue in cheek, being a STH for five years is not much of a badge of honour.
    If you are serious then I would keep quiet or say you were at Chorley with the other 50,000 Southbankers.

    It's still more than 2/3rds of the stadium can say. Even as soon as Wigan last year.

    I wasn't at Chorley for two reasons, one was that I could not face being one of the 67,000 people trying to get into that little ground and the other was that I had two young children to look after on my own. I was however, at Tottenham to see Wolves and Jayne Mansfield on 10 October 1959!

    First game Aldershot away, the day of the Hillsborough disaster. Been obsessed ever since. I’ve earned my stripes and my day in the sun.

    So **** anyone that thinks I’m a glory hunter.

    I was in a galaxy far far away, a long, long time ago.
    Before 1992 when football was invented........
    When Match of the Day had one commentator who showed you the teams, played the highlights and after the ref blew the whistle for the end of the game said “and that’s it for this week”.....oh such bliss!
    When you stood on the terraces, took somebodies half eaten pie home on your shoe but actually had space to enjoy the game with your mates.
    When live games on tv were a luxury that no football fan missed and on FA cup final day players would pretend to laugh and joke so Obe Wan Kan Motson could say how remarkably relaxed they all were.
    Oh and when Wolves were ****. Where was I? Well every other Saturday stood in it at half time in the temp bogs at the back of the North Bank, trying to win football bingo cards on Coppenhalls coaches trips to Aldershot, Scunthorpe, Doncaster, Grimsby and other tropical locations.
    Most importantly supporting Wolves because they were and always will be my team rather than supporting a team just because it was formed in 1992 and is always on Sky.

    I'll tell them I was in a better seat/stand but sadly my place has been taken up by people who weren't there when we were **** now. That's if I've got a ticket at all....maybe I'll sing it from the bar whilst watching an illegal stream as I couldn't get a ticket despite never usually having a problem for 25+ years.

    Just kidding, Reans response or something similar is a good way to go.

    I was there too. Got back to the car after the match, turned on the radio and listened in horror to the news!

    By the way Bill, if you say you are a Wolves fan then you are. It is not down to the arbitrary standards of some backwoods thicko to determine who is and who isn't a Wolves fan!

    I'm 17 and next season will be my 7th year as a STH. Do you want me to magically time travel back to get a ST in the 80s/90s?? Get a grip...

    Yeah but what tune is that sung too:D

    I do appreciate the responses and fully acknowledge the sentiments behind the posts, but was thinking about an immediate song we could sing back.

    I was genuinely at Chorley btw, well two of the three but the real hardcore are the ones who went to the defeat , which I missed. Fickle *******:)-

    Actually no **** em...we were never **** (even when we were ****). We're Wolverhampton Wanderers the greatest football team the world has ever seen! I'm not having some other club saying it and responding verifies the statement.

    I think his point was that the ONE season in League 1 was hardly the really dark times. Due to age (like yourself) myself I've not really lived through those genuine dark days either but I'd be embarrassed to use the League 1 season as some sort of proof I had......it was a great season!

    Maybe that's just me though and being a bit harsh, like you say can't help when you were born.

    It was a great season but we stuck with them throughout getting 19500 for the first 3rd tier home game and average of 20000 , not simply when we were running away with it.

    I’m proud of those stats.

    Bill you Bl##dy Glory Hunter ;) - that was the season right at the start of our rise back up the league's, only took another 14 years to make the top league - shame you missed the downhill years, that only true Wolves fans attended :D:):rolleyes: 1988/89 was my 20th season and I didn't miss a match that or the next 2 seasons so I could visit loads of grounds that I thought I wouldn't be able to with Wolves again, well untill the last few years :rolleyes: but I'm sure it's only Premier grounds I will be visiting (& cup matches) in the future :):):) this November marks my 50 years of mainly heartbreak at the Mol (52 if you include reserve games that my Dad took me to first)

    When we were ****...well as an 80s kid was playing knock door run, kiss chase, gutter ball, scrumping, playing conkers and football over the park and wheeling away with my arms outstretched when i scored,hide and seek, tag, rally and British bulldog...all whilst wearing my wolves top and head shaved.

    That's what i done when we were ****.

    I was in my early flying career and raising a young family in the bad days of the Mid 80s. Got to the odd game, just to depress myself. By 87 my attendance increased as I wasn’t working as hard. By 91 I got to most home games and a fair few away as well.

    Got ratarsed in the pub on the away end at Twerton Park and didn’t make the 20 yard walk to the turnstiles

    Biggest irony for me is I was there while we was good, I was also there when we got ****, and again when we got even more ****.. now we are good.. and could get even better.. I will be sat in Tenerife much of the year!

    Couldn't make it up but ah well, as I tell my son and his lot, I have had my turn, its theirs now.

    Surely the dark times as a football fan are being stuck in the same division year after year. Popping down to division 4 and back sounds like it was a laugh.. apart from the near liquidation part.

    I do remember 2 old dears serving beer in plastic glasses in the dark depths underneath the south bank.

    They didn’t challenge the under age and if you squeezed the pint pot slightly the beer shot out

    Brighton 2013 was a weird one. Already knew we were down before it kicked off barring a miracle. I remember in the pub after singing Wanderers will never die but in the back of my head thinking we’re in serious trouble.

    Tranmere, New Years Day 2014, half ****ed from the night before, in the driving rain with 1,200 other loyal souls watching Ryan Lowe run us all over the place. I remember thinking we were at Tottenham 18 months ago.

    I’ve only supported Wolves 26 years, so the grim 80’s were before me.

    I remember taking an American student friend to a watch a real football game standing on the old South Bank, staring at two condemned empty stands and another sat miles from the pitch with the wrong coloured seats. The look of horror as he returned from the bogs at HT was hilarious!

    Before that, I remember the sickening inevitably of watching our second leg defeat to Aldershot, but now coloured gold by the memories of the seasons which followed, including a very happy trip to the old Wembley for the Sherpa Van Trophy. Somewhat ironically, my daughter interns at Aldershot now in their coaching team, and their victory against us ranks highly in their club folklore.

    Fair point that means I can say I lived through the dark days most my Wolves supporting days have revolved around the championship, Endsleigh league division 1 etc (or division 2 as it should be known).

    Yeah that day was weird I'd convinced myself just to treat it as a mega **** up after the Burnley game and pretty much did so (was cracking cans on the train at 6am). didn't really think about the game even whilst being in there (with the exception of wanting to take Ohara's head off his shoulders).

    Was only when the final whistle went it suddenly hit me hard Wolves were relegated to the lowest point I'd ever personally witnessed. Had to go and stand alone in a emptying stand for a few minutes tears rolling down my cheek.

    A stark reminder to bloody enjoy the good times as and when they come (**** whether people think its 'tinpot' etc) as it always may be just around the corner when Wolves break your heart again.

    I soon got myself together though got a beer from the bar that stays open at the end of the game (actually two) and went hunting for Ohara.

    Only wish I qualified to sing something back, but unfortunately (or fortunately) my first Wolves game saw goals scored by Knowles and Wignall.

    Oh, I do remember Bury at home in 1986.
    A scoring draw in front of "2,205" (including a smattering of away). Desperate times or what !

    Thankfully, the following season saw the entrance of the "Messiah" at number 9 :)
