On 28th January 1950 The Blades travelled to a snow-bound Molineux to play in the Fourth Round of The FA Cup. The match ended 0-0 before Wolves won the replay at Bramall Lane four days later 3-4 with Harold Brook scoring a hat-trick for United. One for Silent Blade ? This clip shows Jimmy Hagan and the Wolves captain Stan Cullis tossing the coin before the Molineux game, yet according to the Denis Clarebrough ‘Sheffield United-The Complete Record’ book (Page 389), Hagan didn’t play in either Wolves game. Thoughts?

The above video was from the scoreless 1947 FA Cup match. We won the replay 3-0, 1947 was Stan Cullis' last year as a player.

First match of 1984-85 season and Tommy Docherty's first match as Wolves manager. Wolves finished the season at the bottom of the 2nd division

Must be shit if they have given away a two goal lead.

The match might have been rubbish, but the pre-match entertainment looked a lot more fun than the new-fangled light shows.

Think this will be an end to our unbeaten run. Wolves probably have one of the best squads on paper and are to some extent under achieving in the prem. I'm going 2-0 wolves but the Blades to bounce back with 3 wins on the bounce :p:D

It pissed it down all game and the pitch was very heavy. If we do get something from the game, just getting the nkt excuses ready.

Ive said early in the thread that I don't like this one but the fact they've played last night, won't be in training today and will be more tired than is gives us a slight advantage in that regard. Hopefully we can get something but I'm not backing us.

A team as well organised as us and equally play a system which suits their players like we do by signing and keeping players suited for the system.

Jimenez and Doherty are the danger men, the latter arrives late and Stevens and Norwood have a big responsibility watching out for him.

Traore very erratic and much depends whether it's his day. Not too bothered about the rest of the forwards and midfield.

Coady will be dreading Moseet's pace and/or McBurnie's aerial challenges; the ex-Blade is over-rated in this sweeper role once he is exposed alone. Their system caters for McGoldrick dropping deep.

Wolves played a first team on Thursday and will be knackered on Sunday. Good time to play them.

1-1 Draw.

I don't think they've won any of their Sunday games following away fixtures in this season's Europa league, including against Burnley, Newcastle and Villa.
