  1. Old photos of Hillsborough Stadium

    Just a few ive saved. Most probably from here to be honest so can't take the credit
  2. Which areas are Wednesday

    I've lived in Barnsley all my life and I would say that of support for sheffield teams Wednesday have it at least 90% to 10% blades. Met and worked with loads of wednesdayites but very few blades. Probably another reason Barnsley fans hate us more than they do them and believe me Barnsley fans hate us with a passion!
  3. if you could pick one player

    Depends if you mean Kieran lee or Kieran lee. Both are pretty good 'box to box' so I'm told! joking aside, not my favourite ever player but what we need is a leader and energy so I would go with Carlton palmer. being ultra critical I feel this team is lacking leaders.
  4. Benidorm where best to watch PO SFs

    You fell into the Jocks trap there!
  5. Would Bruno Manga do a job for us?

    I think I was at another game. He was poo , looked dodgy everytime he got the ball.
  6. Hope we get Leeds in play off final

    There would be no better team to beat but no worse team to lose against.
  7. If Matias is ever fit again

    It all seems very strange how he gets injury after injury and never actually gets fit enough to make the match day squad. Not sure he even plays U23 matches for match fitness?
  8. If Matias is ever fit again

    He came with a reputation as a goal scoring winger but seem recall him missing a sitter on his debut against Bristol city and, other than his goal at Leeds, he never seemed to show any sort of form from then til he got injured. If fit he could be extremely useful to us in the run in but can't see him being match fit. Is there any update on him at all? Does Carlos even get asked the question in press conferences?
  9. Went in the home end last season with my father in law who supports Forest. Was the hardest 90 minutes I've had at a football match trying to keep quiet. Kept my cover until after the final whistle when the players were walking back to the tunnel after going over to the away end and started to clap. Turns out there were loads of other Wednesday fans in there waiting to clap them off as well. Was ok cos the forest fans had long gone!
  10. Bitter Rotherham fans...

    That caller after Carlos was so bitter it was unreal. Why are the likes of Barnsley and Rotherham fans so obsessed with us that it takes over their lives?! They both really hate us when we couldn't really care less about them.
  11. Who you go to the match with..............

    Me, my dad and uncle take it in turns to drive from Barnsley. We always park on that estate up harries road opposite the park near forty foot. We drink in the ground and watch whatever match is on. Nothing exciting but been going with my dad for 30 years and I enjoy that father and son time we have. I'm hoping to take my 2 daughters to their first match this season to continue the tradition.
  12. Derby County bogey boys

    We have a shocking record against Derby. Having said that I have been to Derby 4 times and not seen us lose! Went in 2000 when we drew 3-3 (still having therapy for this one), 2006 when we won 2-0 last match of the season (incidentally up there with my best away days), cup match 2008 2-2 and then epic away day on opening day in 2012 when we drew 2-2 and I was extremely drunk! need to beat them cos I hate how they seem to copy our songs and also now sing those awful nananana ooooooohhhh f*****g songs!
  13. Away days

    Was that the match they were appealing for handball every 2 minutes! Cue thousands of Wednesday fans shouting 'handball' everytime we touched the ball!
  14. Away days

    Was that the 'handball' match? If so, it's up there with my favourite away days. But any away win at Barnsley is my favourite!
