Why you were looking forward to going to the
Have wanted to go to Molineux for some time - no
idea why - just one of those clubs!
2. How easy was your journey/finding the
Very easy to find the ground from the railway
station that we used (train from Manchester
direct to Wolverhampton)
3. What you did before the game pub/chippy....
home fans friendly?

As I like real ale I wanted to find a decent fan
friendly boozer. I chose the Great Western on
Corn Hill which is very very close to the
Out of the Railway station main entrance , turn immediately right to find
the underpass going underneath the station. At
the end of the underpass, turn right down a path

Bar staff were good and friendly.
6. Comment on getting away from the ground after
Easy to get away from ground - station was
inevitably packed to get back to Manchester.
Next time I may go into centre for a meal to see
a bit more of what Wolverhampton is like.
7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
Good day out (apart from the performance and
result from a City perspective).
