  1. The longer it goes on, the less I miss it. I can’t see myself attending much when it starts up again. All football organisations,have left me feeling really disillusioned with the whole sport.
  2. Apparently if you test positive, you’ll always test positive in further testing.
  3. It’s going to be difficult to keep the fan base, and the powers that be onside at the same time. DC has his way of doing things, and keeping the supporters informed isn’t on his agenda. This conflicts hugely with what you’re hoping to achieve. My best guess is you’ll have to water down, what you want to say, or you’ll get frozen out by DC. Good luck, you’re going to need it!
  4. On the team coach in those days, I remember the side panels running the length of the bus, had an illuminated sign “ Sheffield Wednesday FC”. Made our day when we saw it on the way home from away games. Don’t remember how long it lasted for, but I saw it after the game at Coventry, when Roy Barry broke his leg. 1969?
  5. I went with a mate. We were only 14/15 and didn’t know the bus was staying till midnight. After the game, the coach parked up at St Pancras. We didn’t have much money and stayed local to St Pancras/Kings Cross. We lived in Barnsley and hadn’t a clue how we were going to get home when the bus arrived back at Pond St at 4.00 am Sunday morning. Luckily a guy on the bus lived in Barnsley and gave us a lift. Happy days, or were they?
  6. June 1979, I was with 3 mates , in the middle of nowhere, looking over a barrier into the Grand Canyon. I had a Wednesday patch on the back of my shorts. We noticed a group of about 12 approaching us all wearing Stetsons. As they got nearer, one of them shouted “nar den, are you Wednesdayites?” The whole group were on a holiday organised by the “ Sheffield Star.
  7. There was a preliminary round between two clubs, the winner of which, went through to the semi finals with the three remaining clubs.
  8. Strangely, with only 5 teams in it, we didn’t get drawn to play at Barnsley, from the resumption of football after the war, till the competition finished.
  9. The EFL is finished. Most of the clubs will have folded, and the rest of them will have made all their players redundant, before this crisis is over. Football will never be the same. It will have to start all over again.If we ever get through this.
  10. Spent my 21st birthday travelling to Shrewsbury in 1978. Train from Barnsley to Sheffield, then on to Manchester, then onto Crewe, where they announced the game had been called off 15 minutes before we left Sheffield. Don’t remember what happened after that.
  11. Guy who sat next to me back in the day, absolutely hated him. Nigel went down injured one day and Bob stood on his seat and bellowed, “Get foo kin Blacksmith on”.
  12. Winterburn’s face when he thought Di Canio was going to tw at him in the Alcock incident.
  13. I think bottom line is a young Hugh Dowd and an older Hugh Dowd.
