What are they worth?

The compliments continued and articles were written guessing the value of the team following the victory over Honved.  £250,000 was the figure suggested - what would they be worth today?

Ask Stan Cullis, the Wolves manager, to put a figure on each of his players in today’s transfer market and the total sum will be around £250,000.  This is a team rich in ability, with every name on the nation’s lips after their triumphs over Spartak and Honved.

But after the elation Wolves got back to work and Bert was back on the terraces training - it had been fitness and Wolves ability to keep going that had won the day - just as Stan Cullis had predicted.  What a wonderful and astute man he was.

Bert was soon back at work honing his fitness
in preparation for the next challenge

50 years after this victory Bert received a fitting tribute to the lads in gold & black from David Bartley
