Wolves ReReviewed returns for a fifth episode as the 1989/90 season is re-watched, relived and re-reviewed on the official Wolves YouTube channel and Facebook page.
After reviewing the heartbreaking 1994/95 campaign in the last edition, commentator Mikey Burrows, The Athletic’s Wolves correspondent Tim Spiers and comedian Tom Parry are delving further into the history books as they look back at Wolves season review DVDs (and VHSs) from years gone by.
Powered by Energy Angels, the trio will give their unique insight on Wolves’ first season back in the second tier of English football following back-to-back promotions – largely in thanks to the goalscoring exploits of legendary striker Steve Bull.
After making their way from the bottom rung of the professional ladder in successive seasons, Wolves were flying thanks to the attacking duo of Bull and Andy Mutch, with Bully notching 50 goals in both of the last two campaigns, leading to the striker becoming the last to be capped by England as a third division player.
Highlights of the 1989/90 season include a very memorable New Year’s Day trip to Newcastle United which saw thousands of Wolves supporters fly up to the north east and a league double against Black Country rivals West Bromwich Albion.
Off the pitch, a major part of Wolves’ history began at the conclusion of that season, as Sir Jack Hayward purchased the club for £2.11 million, before putting more than £70m of his personal fortune into the club over the course of the next 17 years.
