Former Skipper To Sign New Book

Alistair Robertson is returning to Molineux tomorrow to sign copies of his new autobiography Thou Shalt Not Pass which is now available from the club’s online and stadium stores. Ally will be at the Molineux store from 11am until noon on Saturday, 16th December.

Publishers Pitch have commissioned a Wolverhampton Wanderers version of the cover of his new book, showing him lifting the Sherpa Van Trophy. 

Robertson is a rare breed who can walk tall either side of a bitter Black Country divide, and is loved by both set of supporters of rivals West Bromwich Albion and Wolves. 

Ally played more than 500 games for Wolves’ rivals and became a legend at the Hawthorns, but also enjoyed iconic status at Molineux after making more than 100 appearances in the old gold, under Graham Turner.

The tough-tackling Scot spent 18 years at Albion, gaining promotion under Johnny Giles and becoming a rock during the club's heyday from the mid-1970s alongside skipper John Wile. 

Robertson experienced early struggles under Don Howe and other managers earned his ire, including his nemesis Ron Saunders who forced him out of the club in tears. To rub salt into the wounds, he would miss out on a prized Scotland cap. 

Robertson recovered to lead an ailing Wolves to two divisional titles and a Wembley victory. But beyond the on-pitch aggression and dressing-room camaraderie, Robertson now reveals a calmer, more reflective side to his character in his new book.
