The Pack is Back


Nuno Espirito Santo arrived at Wolverhampton Wanderers in the summer of 2017 with a dream.

As it transpired, the reality of his first season at the Molineux helm turned out to be even more sensational than that dream.

A memorable campaign packed with some of the most attractive football the Championship has ever seen, the league title won with 99 points, and scenes of celebrations in the City of Wolverhampton that will truly never be forgotten.

They Wore The Shirt – The Pack is Back, is a no-holds-barred look back at that historic season, through the eyes of those who lived and breathed it for ten magical months.

The brainchild of lifelong Wolves fan Steve Plant, The Pack is Back is the follow-up to the bestselling original They Wore The Shirt publication which told the story of the club’s iconic kits through history.

Fans’ memories and anecdotes of so many special days are dove-tailed with accounts from past and present players, other familiar faces, and the club’s hierarchy.

With a volume and variety of contributions from so many different sources, The Pack Is Back is a must-have souvenir of a season that will go down in Molineux folklore.

And, as with the first edition, all proceeds from the sales will be donated to Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
