Clive’s autograph hunt

I do hate an illegible autograph so when Clive sent me this a few weeks back asking for help identifying the culprits, I was keen to help.

As the man himself says, “it’s an album from the mid sixties and hoping someone can identify all the signatures. I got Peter Knowles, but ain’t sure of the rest.”

Here’s the picture rotated to offer another angle:

I’ll be disappointed if we can’t solve this one between us lads.

    Ron Flowers has got to be the ‘Ron’ that’s clearly legible.

    The others are tougher. Some players from the 60s to jog the memory of those better positioned than me to connect the dots:

    George Showell
    Norman Deeley
    Eddie Stuart
    Peter Broadbent
    Bill Slater
    Jimmy Murray
    Peter Knowles
    Dave Wagstaffe
    Phil Parkes
    Derek Dougan
    John McAlle
    Frank Munro
    Derek Parkin
    Kenny Hibbitt
    John Richards

    Tricky, is that George Showell at bottom, don’t know above him but above that one looks like Fred Goodwin (not RBS or Man Utd) from Stockport played for us start of 60’s. Top of the page could that be F Davies as in Fred Davies the goalie?

    That’s my era – and I had them all! They are Ron Flowers, Peter Knowles, Fred Davies, Fred Goodwin and George Showell. Might even be my autograph book Clive, though I usually got the signatures on Football Monthly or Topical Times (is that right…sounds odd) pics.

    Where did you get them from Clive?

    You’d think that you’d remember the occasion that so many greats signed your book.

    Or maybe you’d had too many pints of Banks’ Best Bitter.

      You may remember my good friend Pete Clements, who used to be a DJ on Beacon Radio back when it started in the mid seventies, died in April, and Mrs CFH and I sorted all his stuff out, held garage sales, etc etc, and I brought his ashes over when I came for the Bloggers Ball.
      Well, on clearing out a last box of stuff, I came across said autograph book, which was Pete’s, from the mid sixties.
      There were a lot of autographs and stuff from friends, family, teachers etc, all from the Norwich area where Pete was born.
      And very strange, as Pete wouldn’t have know a football from an egg, there were those autographs on one page from Wolves players, and on the opposite page, autographs from some Fulham players.
      Fuckin’ weird!!
      Anyway, I mailed the book to his older brother who still lives in Norwich, and who may well know or remember the names in the book.
      So there. Nothing to do with me at all.
      The only autograph I ever wanted, apart from my own, was The Doog (not you, the real one) and I duly got it not long after he signed for us.

      • theDOOGooder says:

        Yes, I remember you telling me about Pete.

        I never got the Doog’s autograph although I used to see him around Wolverhampton a lot and he even came and gave a lecture at the Art college in ’69 I think it was.

        I was at a fireworks do once and Dougan was the official bonfire lighter.
        He had a flare pistol that he had to fire into the bonfire to set it off – Health and Safety eat your heart out – it caused much amusement when he managed to miss from about ten yards.

        The flare disappeared over the pile of wood and into the night.

        Never found out what happened to it.

        thats a blast from the past
        staying on the Beacon Radio theme, back in the 80’s a DJ on Beacon called Gordon Astley once played Peters & Lee – Welcome Home – as i was on my way to work in Darlaston driving a Mini 1275GT early one morning -straight after playing the song, live on air he said “Peters & Lee split up after that song was released! Diane Lee then walked straight into a solo career & Lennie Peters walked into a lampost”
        I nearly pissed mysen laffin & Gordon had to make a public apology the very next day
        Them were the days…..

    If any of you out there remember Pete Clements, and want to chat about him etc, there is going to be a rememberance thingy on June 24th, at The Plough in Claverley.
    I will not be able to make it, much as I would like to, but there will be plenty of memoirs, memories and photos, and if anyone on the blog would like to go and represent me, I would be very grateful.
    We only have a few, true good friends in our lives, and Pete was one of mine

    Inspired by Clive’s autographs I rooted out an old autograph book that my Dad had in the 1930’s. Page after page of autographs from just about every team going with some of the real greats of the English game.

    Somewhere at the bottom of my wardrobe I have a Wolves shirt, signed by the squad, donated by Moxey! I bought it an auction of promises for some good cause or other. Among the indecipherable scrawls is one quite clearly that of Gazza who was training with Wolves at the time with, I believe, the possibility of signing on. Obviously his career was already in a downward spiral.

    Dear all, thank you for all the posts on here, the emails, text messages and phone calls.

    Special mention to Mike (Twixfix), Mike (BOG), Ian & Sue (Newark Wolves) and Clive (Clive) alhough all the other messages were appreciated – even London Wolves Loyal’s! I didn’t realise so many people cared. I even didn’t mind the odd one telling me to eff off and go and watch Albion.

    Lots of things resulted in my wobble – no names, no pack drill – with lots of factors all coming together at the same time. Weirdly some abuse I got on the E&S from some numpty who referenced the Blogger’s Ball and my views on Edwards was the straw that broke the camel’s wotsit.

    But I am now back.

    In one piece.

    Raring to go.

    Looking forward to the fixtures being released next Wednesday.

    Disappointed our new kit will still have pinstripes and the Money Shop name on it but hey-ho as Rachel might have said.

    And with apologies to the late great Tommy Cooper whose dramatized life story from the early/mid 60’s till his untimely death was repeated on TV the other week;

    I found my wife crying her eyes out the other day.

    So I said to her “What’s wrong?”

    “I’m homesick” she replied.

    “But this is your home” I told her.

    She said “Yes I know and I’m sick of it”.

      I knew you couldn’t keep away.

      You and I – and most of the usual suspects on this blog – will be Wolves fans long after the aforementioned Mr Edwards has flown the nest. No matter what our views on him.

      We’ll surely find lots of other things to disagree about.

      Dave,
      Welcome back mate, you have even got me back on the blog. I got abuse so I walked away. I read the blog every day though. I have to say, and I am repeating myself, me and Sue had a fab time with you in Nottingham when we played “The Shit” last season. Sat outside the pub by the canal – where me and Mrs Wing will be tomorrow actually – a few drinks, nice food and excellent company. And sorry we decided to walk to The Shitty Ground but I forgot how old you were. I can’t wait until next season to meet all you bloggers again. Swapping different stories about why we support Wolves. I do think my reason (because I was a fat kid is one of the best) Brompton actually told me that over breakfast in The Park View. We will be at the Leicester friendly and would love to meet up with you and hopefully Mrs BW. As for the new kit, I have bought the home and away shirts since the Tatung, Staw and Goodyear days but I know people who have suffered badly with money lenders so I won’t be buying one until the sponsors are changed. Moxey’s legacy or what ?

    On a different note. I visited the new club website yesterday, and pretty impressive it is too. Easy to navigate, even for a ole technophobe like me, and much, much quicker than the old one. WolvesPlayer, it seems, will become ‘Wolves TV’ with live match streaming to overseas fans. I’m hoping they’ll show complete games after the event, like Fulham currently do.
    Anyone else tried it out yet?

    Well it looks like tax cheating little Ronnie wants away from RM
    His agency is a certain Gestifute, run by non other than Wolves friendly Mendes.
    Anyone think he would be a benefit to us if we decided to buy him?
    He would fill the stands at every stadium, but would he be good enough?
    He’s only got four European Cups, a bunch of Champions medals from Spain and England, and has only scored a bazzillion goals, and is Portuguese, so not sure if he has what it takes.
    And, he’s never scored against The Wolves, just like Messi.
    Stu’s Vegas winnings might help swing the deal.

    The wife was clearing out the attic. Filthy, dusty, covered in cobwebs. But she’s good to the kids.

    So I said to the doctor “I’ve broken my arm in three different places” and he said “Well don’t go to those places”.

    They reckon one in four people in the world is Chinese. I’ve got three brothers so one of us must be Chinese. It’s not me so it must be either Fred, George or Lui Xhang. I reckon it’s Fred.

    By the way I don’t like the new kit. I don’t like the colour – should be old gold not orange. And I refuse to buy anything with The Loan Sharks across the front. Just hope those Redrow placards have been removed from the Steve Bull stand.

    Finally my eldest son who supports Wolves but now lives in Dubai was playing golf yesterday but had to stop at the 13th hole as he almost fainted from the heat. It was 49 centigrade or 120 in old money. Great place to hold a World Cup?

    Bedders,

    As penance for your thoughts of treason during your dark days of the closed season, I think it should be your turn to organise the Bloggers ballbash come bun fight in 2018. I also think with your strong links to Dubai and a Wolves fan son based there to boot, it would make sense to hold it there. Maybe even cheap rates in the Sofitel on “the walk” for group bookings, lovely hotel where Jen de Wolf and I had a great two weeks in the infinity pool in 45*C.
    With talk of a golf course there, I’m sure we could convince every ex-Wolves player on the planet to attend. Just putting it out there. No pressure.

    Quick update…..

    The new Video screens are being fitted this very minute, one single screen as opposed to the little jobbies we had before and they are in the same position in the two corners.

    I was at a meeting with the Wolves DSA and the Curator of the museum said they were being done. Also, the PA system is being ripped out and the new one fitted also as we speak, so looking good for our entertainment package. If we can only find 11players with skill and heart it bodes well for 2017/18.

    • It’s the entertainment on the pitch that really matters of course, but as a statement of intent, it shows Fosun are committed to improving the product. Top quality new pitch been laid too.

    I like Bedford Wolf’s Ballbash itinerary.

    Just one addition mightbe quite interesting – and it was the PMDG’ers idea.

    What about a Bloggers’ five a side competition in West Park?

    I don’t know how you’d choose the teams:- Split the country into areas and pick by postcode, or have the over 70s versus the over 80s, or just pick like we used to in school and the fat lad can be left ’til last.

    Ronnie has never scored against Wolves
    Join the dots, Ronnie comes to Wolvo, lots of other superstars decide its the happening club
    We win promotion next year, Prem the following year, and Champions League ad infinitum

    It’s a funny old world.

    Yesterday myself and Mrs BW were in that London to go to the theatre (The Philanthropist – very good). During the interval (I’m not allowed to call it half time apparently) I nipped outside for a cigarette and as I stood in front of the theatre just by Trafalgar Square two young women were coming along the road. One had a placard saying ‘F*** The Tories’ the other had one saying ‘Defy Tory Rule’. I was offended by the use of an obscenity, and an undemocratic statement, being brazenly paraded through the streets of my home town. So I decided to act.

    As they drew level with me I asked them “Excuse me, why do you think it is acceptable to go around with placards containing such a nasty, offensive and obscene message? There are families and children here!”.

    My flabber has rarely been so gasted by their response. Turns out both were Spanish and spoke hardly any English. Using my best pig-e-on Spanish (plus a few hand signals) I managed to find out they were college students in Madrid over here for a week’s cultural visit and staying in a hostel with about 20 others nearby. That morning a ‘nice man’ had come to the hostel and offered them free tickets to one of the more popular clubs in Covent Garden that night in return for them coming along to a march and holding a placard. They had no understanding of what the placards meant or what the march was about.

    Next time you see or read about a mass demonstration on the streets of London please remember this.

    It’s a funny old world ain’t it?

      Strange thing Bedders, that nice Mr Trump has been saying the same thing for years, not just Months. Couldn’t possibly true! Could it?

      It’s called “rent a mob”. Despicable.

      Meanwhile, I’ve just driven through central London and a fine old argy-bargy has been going on. Not the Tories this time. It’s the al-Quds Day March with supporters of the illegal and banned terrorist organisation marching and displaying their banned flag. It’s a huge provocation especially after recent terrorism in Manchester and London. London’s mayor Sadiq Khan refused to stop the march. I can’t,imagine it happening in New York.

      With you 100% here Bedders.

      Trump was right about one thing.

      There is ‘Fake News’.

      And most of it’s being put about by the militant left.

      They’ve managed to turn the Grenfell Tower tragedy into a political infight.

      F**k politics!

      Just mourn the dead and make sure it doesn’t happen again!

      I’m not a political beast at all but it makes me f****ing mad when social media and empty headed morons are manipulated by far left – or right – thugs.

      It’s one of the growing number of things that might persuade me to leave this country before it sinks under a pile of hypocritical slurry.

      On a slightly brighter note:-

      DOOGooder claim to fame. Number 1.

      My sister played ‘Araminta’ in the very early Bristol Old Vic production of The Philanthropist before it opened in London.

        Araminta? The character was what my dear old Mum would have referred to as a ‘flighty piece’, my dear old Nan would have called a ‘trollop’ and my dear old Uncle Reg would have just called.

        In its current manifestation the part was played by Lily Cole who, I am told, is an ex-model, about 6 foot 12, very gangly and with very thin legs as long as the M1 and a face that one can only kind call ‘different’ .

        I used to do some modelling myself when I was younger.

        I stopped as I found that Airfix glue got everywhere.

    Get back in your Padded Tower you yank, stop sniffing those herbal tablets. Ronnie Barker is about the best we could come up with.

    Although, it was muted about by Lorrie van Pimple last week that we had signed, 1, Carmen Miranda, 2, were totting up the ticket sales, 3, Launching the new kit and 4, be prepared for a surprise next week.

    Sauces at the local Chinese takeaway are saying there’s talk of a £12 million player to be announced next week (over the new tannoy system no doubt)

    So sitting in your padded cell, Dare to Dream yank. Dare to Dream…

    It was so hot today I said to Mrs BW this morning that I’d be sunbathing naked in the garden. “What do you think the neighbours will say?” I asked her. “They’ll say I must have married you for your money” she said. Harsh but fair.

      Flowers Towers. Can I recommend the Charles Atlas course? Dynamic Tension. Just pull out an old newspaper such as the News of the World, circa 1959, and find the small ad. Send a stamped-addressed envelope and your free course will follow in a plain sealed envelope. In no time at all you will be a new man.

    Very interesting and informed article in The Guardian today, all about the Wolves takeover and the Mendes influence. Well worth a read. Here is the link:

    https://www.theguardian.com/football/2017/jun/19/jorge-mendes-wolves-influence-chinese-owners-signings

    The Guardian, you might think, would not be on the money with a football story. But, funny how a choice of newspaper can be perceived. Take a very different newspaper like the Daily Telegraph. I was flying from London Gatwick airport last week. I was in WH Smith there, queuing. The lady being served in front me was buying a bottle of water; The cashier told her that the Daily Telegraph was free with that bottle of water. The lady refused to take the paper saying “I don’t want anyone thinking I would buy that newspaper”. I presume she was a Guardian reader!

    Interesting read, DWW, but for me just re spewing facts we already knew.
    Now if some so called journalist out there, who happens to read our wonderful blog, actually writes something containing, wait for it,……… an opinion, shock horror, then it might be worth reading, instead of wiping one’s arse with it, Tim.

    Phil Ofosu-Ayeh From the German league apparently been signed on a 3 year deal, he’s the guy we said had his medical a couple of weeks ago. Big tall strong defender who make forward runs, good with the ball.

    Let’s hope that turns green tomorrow.

    A measure of how far we have come and indeed how far we might be going is seeing the likes of Wallace, Saville and Henry depart. These were first team regulars not so long ago, new signings, the future – then we came out of Poundland, got a new wallet bulging with cash and started to think big a bit like the fans had always done. It is little more than a year ago that Moxey was telling us that we should be grateful and that we were a small, provincial club blah, blah, blah. Regardless of how well some of the new signings fare or the new manager it is still immeasurably better to have hope and excitement once more coarse get through our veins. Without hope what is the point?

    Fixtures out tomorrow – maybe we could organise a Bloggers Away Day at say Fulham (which is usually a hoot) with bloggers far and wide converging on old London Town to meet up for a bite to eat, some alcohol and a natter before the game?

      Me and Sue did Fulham away in the FA Cup a couple of years ago. Absolutely loved the day even though it was a 0-0 draw. Really nice old fashioned football ground. We would be up for that Dave. We went on a Leon’s coach so we didn’t get to see much of London. Or…………….we could do the away day at the shit (Forest) and you could all stay here 😉

      Clive,
      I can handle dogs, frogs, snakes and skunks anyday. Unfortunately, in Newark, we have the “travellers” – inverted commars as they don’t travel anywhere and have been camped near the river Trent since I was a kid – a fat one at that. We have the Polish – who have even got a shop in town with a “NO ENGLISH” sign on the door – I kid you not ! And it is also full of shit fans – Forest, that is, not WBA. So, thinking about it, lets go to Fulham.
