The Giant Killers

Every F A cup slaying since 1888


Wolves started out as original members of the league in 1888 but spent more time out of the top flight than in it during the League's first fifty years, including one season in the Third Division. Although Wolves won the cup in 1893 and 1908 it wasn't until the 1930s that they finally established themselves as a strong top flight club. A third cup success in 1949 was followed in 1960 when Norman Deeley's goals saw them cruise to a 3-0 victory over a hapless Blackburn side. Those success came either side of the greatest team in Wolves' history, The fifties side that claimed three titles in 1954, 1958 and 1959. The sixties and seventies were spent moving between the top two divisions before the eighties saw the club hit rock bottom when they dropped into the fourth tier in 1986. Since the 1990s the second tier has been where Wolves can most commonly be found with brief highs in the Premier League and single season trip back into the third tier. Their greatest 21st Century cup moment came as a giant killer when silencing the Kop at Liverpool's Anfield in 2017.
