Steve Bull Q&A: I had to say no to joining Harry’s Heroes

It is time to answer more of your cracking questions about my career and Wolves in general.

Thank you very much for sending them over – let’s get started.

Why weren’t you called up to fill the gap in the Harry’s Heroes team? (@WolfRat9)

I will be straight with you – I was asked to go on the show.

I was asked to go on but I can’t play anymore because of my knees.

They wanted people who could play the game rather than be a coach or spectator.

They wanted players there, so I had to turn them down because of my knees.

I would have loved to be on it and would have had a right laugh, but no can do. Sometimes your body tells you not to do something and that’s one I can’t do.

Which Wolves defender in training was the one who you found the toughest to get the better of? (@findingnuno)

The one who was the hardest and didn’t care whether it was me, Keith Downing or Andy Thompson was Shane Westley.

He was a big 6ft 5in lad. He was strong and would put two-footed tackles in on you as he wanted to win the ball.

He was really tough, so I used to hope to be on his team in the five-a-side games. Shane was exactly the same in training as he was in a real game.

In rugby after the allocated time allowed the ball must be kicked out of touch to end the game. Do you think this would work in football to add to the excitement of potential more injury time goals being scored? (@AndyHodge16)

I think it would, to be fair. I think it’s a good idea that could bring more excitement. Nice question!

What do you think of Morgan Gibbs-White getting away with breaking lockdown rules? (@ItsRobbieAyit)

Well, he will know what he has done is wrong, no doubt about it.

He has been a naughty boy, and I think he’ll have realised that.

He will learn from what he has done. They say in life that you learn from your mistakes, so fingers crossed he can put this behind him and let his football do the talking.
