Just to whet the appetite for the forthcoming cup tie, a trip down memory lane - 40 years ago to be precise, unbelievable!!
The Wolves side contains many of our beloved from the era, though check out the pitch and the significant Blue and Yellow following, mainly in the South Bank but in the Cow Shed too. A decent Shrews side containing Graeme Turner and the very talented Paul Maguire.
40,946 were there. Not me alas.

Good to see that thanks Ivy, and good to be able to recognise so many players in our team, although I have to say I don't remember our goal scorer Rafferty!!

Billy Rafferty was not exactly an all time great and was out once Andy Gray signed.

What a mud fest. Isn’t it great how much the technology for grass and pitches has come along. Anyone remember the Baseball Ground? Derby County was a quagmire at the end of Winter, far worse than this, but I do not recall the Mol being in this shape.
Anyway we should flatten Shrewsbury and then move on to bigger things. But Accrington would be 👍

Billy Rafferty, not an all time great? Lol. Okay, not for us and I remember being gobsmacked when he signed for us, however he’s remembered with great affection down in these parts. He was part and parcel of a fantastic scoring double act with Paul Mariner (pre Ipswich, Arsenal and England) in the Argyle promotion winning side in 1975. That Argyle side was great fun to watch.
An important equaliser for us though - we won the replay 1-3 to set up a less fortunate semi final with Arsenal. At least Alan Sunderland scored the winner in the final.

Fair enough buddy, your knowledge of West Country football far outweighs mine but I honestly don't remember him doing that well for us. If I'm wrong, I am perfectly willing to accept that. UTW.

You’re spot on AF - a handful of goals in one-ish season for us. A distant blip of a memory for most Wolves fans, I agree, just a bit more significant for me, I suppose. Those were the days when my Plymothian relative (the only one outside of the Black Country/ Staffs area back then - other than us) would let us through the Argyle turnstiles for free!
