Which signing that your club made got you the most excited?

Andy Cole was a massive one in my book. Was so shocked and couldn't believe it, but was so unbelievably excited and happy.

He was so underrated was Mr Cole...

I was positively elated when we signed Litmanen ,one of the most outrageously talented footballers in Europe,but firstly it turns out you have to have a manager who thinks he's good enough for the first eleven and secondly one who doesn't hold grudges if a player speaks out of turn ....Thanks Clouseau.

Tough one. I didnt and mostly still don't, have a clue about any of Wolves most recent signings and those I do know I've never seen. John De Wolf or Keith Curle were fairly high profile. Geoff Thomas had been an England International about 8 months prior to joining us, Tony Daley seemed another exciting one too.

A lot of that eras signings are now associated in my mind with constant disappointment now. Dennis Irwin perhaps could take it as came to us straight from Utd and helped finally get promoted.

Ah Litmanen, what a player. Just not for us! Same with Kewell, I thought he was going to be the bollocks, but no he wasn't!

I thought yours would’ve been Massimo Taibi.

Rickie Lambert. £1m. 235 games, 117 goals.

It was an absolute joy to see him leading the line for 5 seasons, leading us to two promotions and into the Premier League where many expected him to fail but he didn't. England goal against Scotland on his debut, first touch. Great memories. I was gutted when he left us but we couldn't deny him the Liverpool move, he had given us so much - it's a shame he never managed to get a goal at Anfield for us or them tbh.
