It was 40 years ago! Hard to believe that today marks the 40th anniversary of the last time Wolves won a major trophy - the league cup. Who would have thought all these years later we would have still been waiting for our next?

Certainly not me at the time. Like many after that fantastic win, I was convinced that it was going to be the springboard of a new period of success in the 80s. How wrong could I have been.

We were considerable underdogs for the final against a terrific Cloughy led Nottingham Forest side who were reigning European Champions and who went on the defend that title only months later.

A great moment for all Wolves fans, however rather than me writing about it, take a look at the video in the thread below. And what a winning goal it was! Has there ever been a simpler, sweeter tap in than that day??

UTW!!
