    I have to pinch myself to realise how lucky i was to be an impressionable teenager when he came to the club, and seeing virtually all of his goals flying in. We will never see another play like him. My hero.

    I spoke to him yesterday at the school Easter Service and wished him a Happy 50th.

    Never be another like him and those incredible back to back goal scoring seasons of the 1987/88 and 88/89 seasons will be never be forgotten by those of us who were around to witness them.

    Brought a lump to my throat watching that.
    Was lucky to see most of his goals , certainly all the home ones.

    Legend. Never be another sadly.

    Look at players today, not fit to lace his boots. He never forgot his roots and couldnt even leave wolves when he was 'sold' to Coventry.

    Absolute legend , a nice bloke and very loyal.

    Happy 50th Bully

    So tonight I think I'll have

    "A drink, a drink, a drink
    To Stevie, the king, the king, the king,
    The saviour of the Wanderers team
    For he's the greatest centre-forward
    That the world has ever seen."

    Happy Birthday Bully and thanks for the memories

    Saw most of his goals because I didn't really miss a game home or away for about 10 years from mid to late 80's onward. Feel very privileged to have seen this legend play for my wonderful club.

    Will never, ever forget how I felt when he scored on his debut Vs Scotland. I actually think I did cry a little bit.

    Love this guy- turned this club around under the guidance of Graham Turner. Happy birthday Steve.

    So lucky to have seen the guy in the flesh helping to bring us out of the dark days. Standing on the south bank in my teenage years watching him batter defenders week in week out. Lovely fella as well. Happy birthday Bully. A true loyal football hero

    A true legend when the word is often overused. A £30m player in today's market and Wolves through and through.

    Happy birthday SGB!

    As a kid John Richards was my idol however, when I became a young man you simply took things to another stage for me, I was able and lucky enough to be able to travel the length and breadth of the country to watch you play. Memories for me that will never fade. Simply Golden.

    My favourite memory was NUFC away on New Years Day, you ripped them to bits fella.

    Just gone past 50 me self, where the hell did that go !!

    Gave me so many happy times, the seasons 86-89 were the ones that really hooked me from being a casual supporter who went when it suited me to a real fan. I remember a guy telling me about him and the first time I saw him was Hereford away on Boxing Day (we lost, he didn't score) but after that it was nothing but joy for years. Always seemed like a player who was desperate to give everything, not for his own glory, but to make the fans happy. As mentioned above told all my mates what a hero he was and so proud to be watching him with them on TV against Scotland when he did what he had been doing all season for Wolves, see the goal, smash it in, simple but beautiful. There truly will never be another, tell me of the wonders of the 50's if you like, but for me he will always be the greatest ever.

    Have great day SGB and thanks for all the wonderful memories.

    So glad I got to see him play and see most of his goals. Special player who would have been scored goals at any level he played at. One of a kind and there won't be another.

    Happy Brithday Bully.

    I saw the Doog and John Richards and they'll always remain firm favourites of mine but having seen them it's impossible to convey how very low we'd been reduced until Steve Bull appeared on the scene. Rafferty, Bell etc just didn't do it for me but then when we were praying for a miracle, one actually occurred. The Turner team wasn't a one man phenomenon (take a bow, Andy Mutch) but without GOD we would never have recovered the lost ground. He restored our self belief and our pride and waived the chance of more money elsewhere showing what kind of a man he was. Faithful to the end. I simply cannot express my gratitude in words. I'll always love the man for that.

    I worked in Tipton during the Bully era--the local barber had pictures of Bully covering the walls as he was a big fan , didn't matter what style / cut you asked for you always came out with a Steve Bull !!!

    There was nothing quite as special as celebrating a good Bully goal.

    What a man! What a legend!

    Sure all of us hope to see many great players at Wolves but in all my years of watching I've yet to see another player who has done and meant so much to the team and supporters.

    Have a good one Bully.

    One day I'll try and work out how many of the 306 I saw but gotta be close to 200 as hardly missed any home games in the early 90's and we had just discovered Cannock wolves for aways, oh to be 14-25 again like I was when he played for us .

    Have a pint on us all Bully

    Some fabulous posts on here - Wolves Fc, their fans and Bully have a bond which is very rare indeed.

    He was my hero growing up and my favourite Wolves player of all time - was lucky enough to meet him once and he was just a cracking, down to earth fella.

    Thank you for all you've done for out great club Mr. Bull, have a very happy birthday!

    I will never, ever, forget that goal versus Scotland. I would have been 9 years old. I remember watching the game with my dad and brother. Me and my brother were excited however looking back now, I remember being more excited at how excited my dad was..if that makes sense..! Bully smacks it in and we all run out into the street, joined by all the neighbours, all Wolves fans, for an impromptu party. People dancing, singing, waving Wolves scarves. Till the day I die I will never forget that moment.

    Looking back now, I feel truly blessed to have started following the Wolves when I did, my first game being just months before we spent the best 65k in the history of football.

    Quite simply a phenonomen never again to be repeated. Legend.
