Wolves boss Mick McCarthy would love a return to the blood and thunder derbies of the past.
But he knows the days when the physical part of the game was encouraged have long expired.
McCarthy himself partook in some passionate derbies, both north and south of the border, with Manchester City and Celtic.
Wolves travel to The Hawthorns on Sunday to face neighbours West Brom, where they will hope to end their record of seven games without a win.
However, the former Republic of Ireland manager concedes he is unlikely to see any thunderous challenges.
"When I was playing 150 years ago, you could tackle," he said.
"In the first minute, you would boot someone over the stand and get away with it. Or someone would clatter into you and break your bugle.
"These days, derbies might be played at a frenetic pace, but I don't see those blood-and-guts derbies any more, not anywhere."
He added: "The games against Albion in the last few years have been really tough and competitive and I am looking forward to another one.
"Of course, there's something extra with it being in the Premier League. My pals who are Wolves fans won't let me forget it.
"It's been too long without the clubs playing each other in the top flight, so let's get it on."
