Steve Bull: Graham Hughes will always be a Wolves legend

I am very sorry to hear of the passing of Graham Hughes, a true Wolves legend.

He will be greatly missed by everyone who walked through those reception doors at Molineux and was greeted by him.

Like Sir Jack Hayward, he was part of the furniture for so many years.

Anybody who had the pleasure of meeting Graham will tell you they were made to feel welcome and at home.

To me, he was a very, very good friend.

From day one, he opened the door to me and it stayed that way until he sadly left us.

But he will always be remembered with the utmost fondness, by me and all of my old colleagues.

He loved being around all the lads, and we loved being around him as well.

He had the corner stand named after him, and his love for the club was there for everyone to see.

Graham was Wolves through and through, as genuine as they come.

He was a top-drawer bloke who always had a smile on his face and a story to tell.

You won’t hear anything but good words about him, as he had nothing but good words to say about everyone he came across.

He greeted everyone with open arms and if you needed to know anything about Wolves, he was who you went to.

He was a fountain of knowledge.

Graham was a lovely, lovely friend, and a lovely man.

He would have been hoping for a Wolves win at Newcastle tonight, too.

It has been good to see the team have an upturn in performances and results as of late so, fingers crossed, they can keep it up on Tyneside and make it five games unbeaten in the Premier League.

I don’t think Nuno’s lot are going to go there and sit back either.

They will be pushing for the win from the start.

It is a big game for the Magpies as they are in the relegation battle.

There is still the need for us to climb the table, though, and keep the confidence high for the weeks to come.

Hopefully, we will have something to smile about this evening, to take into what will be a very tough game at Manchester City on Tuesday night – and then another big one against Villa next weekend.

Graham, you will be sorely missed by everyone at Wolves.

What a gentleman, who I was lucky enough to have as a great friend. It was a pleasure.
