Foreword by Steve Bull

‘I love being part of Nuno’s ‘Pack’. We’ve waited a long time for this, so long may it continue.’
Steve Bull MBE, Vice-President, Wolverhampton Wanderers FC

"What a day, what a season, what a bunch of lads." Danny Baath
"I love playing at Wolverhampton." Rúben Neves
“It was a season we'll always remember." Diogo Jota
“This is paradise." Robert Plant

 

What a season that was for Wolves fans! Not just promotion, not just league champions, but a breathtaking season of sublime and exhilarating football the likes of which haven't been seen at Molineux for generations.

 

Nuno Had A Dream is a celebration of the triumphant 2017-18 Championship season inspired by Portuguese manager Nuno Espírito Santo who created a team and a football philosophy that revitalised and revolutionised the club while entertaining and exciting the whole city.

 

Lovingly written by local journalist and lifelong Wolves supporter David Harrison, and illustrated with fabulous photos from official ‘access all areas’ photographer Sam Bagnall - including many never previously published - Nuno Had A Dream describes and analyses the emotional journey to the Premier League travelled by the team and its faithful fans - a powerful force hailed by Nuno as, 'The Pack'.
