    Just wanted to say, Well done Wolves fans you made me proud.

    I took my Feyenoord supporting Dutch colleague to the match on Saturday and he had a thoroughly enjoyable day out. Sat in the Southbank and the atmosphere was electric. So we didn’t play to the best of our game but entertainment wise it was top class.

    Hopefully I have turned him to following Wolves as his English team. He went to Villa vs. Spurs last year and told me that the atmosphere at the stadium on Saturday was 10 times that at Villa Park (to be expected but a nice complement). Before he left he invited me to a return leg at the De Kuip to watch Feyenoord vs Ajax.

    Thank you John De Wolf for giving me something to start a conversation with. Roll on Rotterdam and Cheers guys for providing my mate with a day out to remember.

    Took a couple of Dutch mates to watch Wolves v Notts County in our promotion year (76-77). We then adjourned to the Ash Tree in Dudley Road to 'sample English beer' (Banks's). They thought the beer was superb but the football $$$$$e.

    Is that the one just down the side street from the Goal Post? (sorry crap with street names). If so isn't it re-opening after being shut for a few years?

    There is/was an Ash Tree down there, (Great Hampton Street) But the one on about here is down where the Aldi (Fighting Cocks) is now.

    I was in London in April this year and had just bought my cousin a Wolves retro top (he was over from NZ). Anyway we were off to sup a couple of beers in the evening when we were acosted by this maniac; foaming at the mouth, completely wired, deshevelled bloke, shouting at us and pointing at the club shop bag (over my cousins shoulder, with the big Wolf crest on it).

    Turns out after about 5 minutes of "Aye?", "You what, son?" I realised he was Dutch and was screaming "Yahn De Volf" and pointing at the bag. I managed to find out that he and some friends came over and saw 2 Wolves games home and away just coz we'd bought John De Wolf. So seems some dutchies have a soft spot for us.

    What a loon though!

    Correct -- just opposite Aldi. Used to be a small, cozy, local boozer serving excellent Banks's, but I haven't been in there for years.
