  1. My current number of grounds 156 With Wednesday a very modest 78 (I would like to hang my boots up on 100) I completed the 92 club but now have to do the new grounds to get it back up there again. As some have said there are no rules it's just a bit of fun But to see some serious numbers go to http://100groundsclub.blogspot.com/p/100fgc-roll-of-honour.html?m=1 There are some in the thousands, you will find me on there although my list needs updating. Shaun who runs the site is a smashing bloke and has been to nearly 700 grounds!
  2. I worked with Ian after he finished football he's a smashing bloke, when most people say goodbye , Ian always said 'see you at the far post' I also played football with his toddler son Neil on their back garden in Chapeltown.
  3. A free day out for the local community put on by the club. There are always some moaners. I am not sure what more the club can do. Well done Wednesday for putting on this annual event.
  4. Imo I would sooner be fighting relegation and watching world class footballers than looking forward to another season of mediocre second division football
  5. From time to time this subject comes up and it truly surprises me that it is an issue. Since I passed my driving test I have attended and driven too the vast majority of 'big games' at Hillsborough (big imo being 30k crowd or above) To my knowledge: I have never not found a parking space within 15 mins walk of the ground. I have never paid for a car parking space I have never parking illegally I passed my driving test in 1980. Obviously there can be issues if you can't walk very far, that with a guess is an issue at any sporting or music venue in the country. But if you can walk a few hundred yards and turn up with plenty of time there is no problem parking at Hillsborough
  6. https://www.facebook.com/eastmidlands.owls Have a chat to the admins of this group. There's lots of Owls in Derby but I don't know of a regular coach. Welcome to South Derbyshire
  7. Agreed February 1998, its the best individual performance I have seen regardless of nationality. Best English Wednesday player the forgotten man always seems to be Trevor Francis well past his best but for 20 mins. you could tell why Clough pid a record transfer fee for him
  8. I thought we were still called the Wednesday and not Sheffield Wednesday until about 1920. You learn something everyday. Thanks for posting mate.
  9. Beckham great player, you don't get to play for saf or get 100 caps because of good looks. But Zidane was arguably the best player in the world in his prime. And even The Emperess Posh Spice herself would not have claimed that about her Dave
  10. The current system is ludicrously complex, compare this to kop pricing in the famous season 1990 / 91 My season ticket bought at the best early bird discount price was £74 which was £3.22 per match, pay on the day was £5, no categories just one price. So by buying all the games and paying up front I got just over a third off. That seems to me to be a fair and easy to understand system.
  11. I didnt say it was all about performances I said performances was the main driver. Of course price has an impact on everything in life for virtually all of us. But the one thing that will do more to get more people to go next year is having something worth watching on the pitch that's no different at any football club.
  12. Whether it should be £30 or £25 a match is up for debate but the idea is spot on.
  13. I don't think I know one person from Sheffield that is a 'neutral' and would choose which club to watch based on current form or league standing. I do know people from Sheffield who are not interested in football at all I also know football fans who might go to the lane next year for a 'big 6 matchday experience' I have a couple of mates who used to go to the lane one week and Hillsborough the next but that was in the days that football was cheap and both of them were not neutral but preferred one of the Sheffield clubs over the other. But neutral football follower! I don't think they exist.
