Having been already moved once, Wolves home game against Stoke City has now been pushed back to March 7th at the wishes of The Potters.
The match was initially put back a day due to Wolves FA Cup 4th round tie being televised on a Sunday 29th January.
Stoke were very accomodating in granting Wolves request, but forgot they are holding a Stanley Matthews tribute dinner at The Britania that same night.
The two clubs have now agreed to play the fixture on Tuesday March 7th at 19:45 instead.
'We were grateful that Stoke accommodated our request for the 24 hour postponement it seemed only fair to co-operate with their call to move the game again,' club secretary Richard Skirrow said to Wolves official site
'We apologise to our supporters for the inconvenience. Anyone who has already purchased a ticket for the match, but who might now have difficulty in attending, should contact the ticket office.'
'Vouchers issued for the match as part of the club shop 'Free Ticket For Stoke' promotion will be valid for the revised date.'
No one can surely begrudge Stoke's request. If it were an evening dedicated to Billy Wright Wolves would expect City to do the same thing.
People talk about wingers like Ryan Giggs in hushed tones of awe, but Matthews was the original.
How much he would cost in todays market is impossible to say, but you would'nt be looking at much change from 20 mill for a guess.
When Stoke gave him his testimonial in 1965 Puskas, Lev Yashin and Di Stefano turned up. In Stoke! An estimated 112 MILLION watched the game on television.
His professional career spanned 34 years.No, that's not a typo.
He had made nearly 700 League appearances for Stoke City and Blackpool and played for England 56 times.
He was 50 when he retired, and he was still playing football in India during the early 70's.
The first player to be awarded a knighhood, Emlyn Hughes said of him
'He was a superstar, a super player - an absolute gentleman. He would have been great in any era.'
