Just wondering what people believe was possibly the strongest man for man Wolves team ever. I know it's difficult to compare but here's mine from the late 50's early 60's.
Bert Williams :
Bill Shorthouse, Eddie Clamp :
Bill Slater, Billy Wright, Ron Flowers :
Jimmy Hancocks, Peter Broadbent, Roy Swinbourne, Denis Wilshaw, Jimmy Mullen.
(I was really young then, never could understand why Denis Wilshaw's nickname was 'Gladys')
These are players I've only read about, heard first hand accounts about and seen limited black and white footage of......but even that's enough for me not to doubt that line up.
Can't disagree with most of the selections. However, I feel that Peter Knowles would have to be in a best ever team. Johnny Hancocks, not Jimmy.
GEORGE SHOWELL DEREK PARKIN
MIKE BAILEY BILLY WRIGHT RON FLOWERS

Based on the players I've seen, left out some great ones though, just shows what a special club we are. Not where!
