Wolverhampton Wanderers: Fans react to footage of Derek Dougan’s goal

Wolverhampton Wanderers: Fans react to footage of Derek Dougan’s goal - Wolves

After Wolverhampton Wanderers posted dug deep into the archives for another one of their ‘Goal of the Day’ specials, a number of the club’s faithful took it upon themselves to reply and leave their own memories about the moment on Twitter.

Derek Dougan’s headed goal against Manchester United in their 3-1 win at Old Trafford in 1972 (per YouTube) was selected and it was one many of the supporters clearly remember fondly.

Perhaps the club’s official website put it best when they described the former forward as one of the club’s most popular players to have ever pulled on the gold and black colours in their history.

Of course, Dougan proved to be a handful for defences and goalkeepers when playing for Wolves, as he managed to record an impressive 123 goals in 323 appearances and subsequently being labelled as one of the Old Gold’s talismanic strikers (per the club’s official website).

Upon seeing the goal, many of the Wolves faithful were left discussing a lot of different aspects in regards to the footage, with some reserving some special praise for their former star, whilst others left wondering how that ‘under-rated’ team would get on in the modern game.

Here are just some of their reactions…
