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.
