FFV’s ‘One For The Future’: Fabio Silva
Wolverhampton Wanderers are a club with a rich history in English football – formed originally as St. Luke’s FC in 1877, only thirteen other clubs in England can rightfully claim to be older than the West Midlands outfit.
Instantly recognisable by the signature gold and black strip and iconic stadium, Molineux, Wolves are 3-time champions of England’s top division and have also won the FA Cup on 4 occasions.
However, with their latest major silverware being landed over 40 years ago (the League Cup in 1979-80), they are a club that have been somewhat starved of success in recent times, frequently being labelled as one of English football’s ‘sleeping giants’.
After following up a Championship title win in 2017/18 with two 7th-placed finishes at England’s highest level, hopes are high the Nuno Espirito Santo and his current crop of coaches and players can deliver the type of consistent, sustained success that Wolves fans have craved for so long.
