    He's not brought them much luck - wonder if he'll stay away if they win without him? :D

    I think most clubs will have that handful of utterly dedicated fans who never miss a game, home or away.

    I know Evertonians who haven't missed a game in decades, but they live close to the ground and have jobs that facilitate the expenditure and time off work.

    However, it's always more impressive when fans like the one in the OP make long pilgrimages for home games.

    He must have a desperately depressing home life if following Wolves all over the place for the last few years has been preferable. :)

    There was a Wolves fan a few years back living on the Isle of Wight who never missed a game. Craziness.

    There's also a fan setup called Swedish Wolves who come over from Scandinavia several times a season. They always invade my local dressed as Vikings and get totally chemist. They're a fun bunch of guys to have a few beers with.

    I have never heard that expression before, unless you mean they show up dressed as Vikings and perform chemistry experiements.
     
  6. Over here, we typically call a pharmacy "the chemist's". That might clarify the meaning a bit :p

    I thought so as well, especially when you consider that Bully had to make a 300 plus miles round trip to do it. (I've met him a couple of times, by the way - he's well known to fans for being a really nice bloke.)

    Good to see it made BBC national news,too, and not just the local press.
     
  13. That's awesome!

    I love the caption under the second pic mentioning how Bully scored 102 goals for Wolves in just his first two seasons at the club. Read that again. 102 goals in two seasons. That's pretty impressive in any context.
     
  17. Who would have thought that Wolves could have scored over 100 goals in two seasons :bag:

    Very impressive tally!
