    For Goodness Sake!

    Brilliant!! My first game 1960. Totally agree old boy. New dawn and all that. Seen many over the years. "The end of SWFC!!!". Really!!! Hilarious.

    To Provide Some Balance

    Absolutely. Stayed to the bitter end yesterday and have about half your journey time home but had the same thoughts. DC became too close to Carlos and that makes sacking him very difficult. When you own a football club or are in charge of any kind of enterprise/organisation (I have been) you have to operate with a respectful distance between yourself and those who work for you. He was far too "chummy" with CC which prolonged his tenure. The new CEO is an attempt to change that and make the running of the club more business-like. It needs it but whether she is the right choice remains to be seen. If she starts to alienate the fans the reaction will be Charlton plus and DC's "Wednesday family" will be gone and he will have to go himself with all the disastrous consequences. My overwhelming emotion after nearly 60 years as a Wednesdayite is sadness and disappointment. We had hope and now we face a long road to what I hope will be a recovery. On the field we need someone like Lambert in straight away. Not a CC type appointment as I reckon that would be a disaster.

    I’m very angry tonight

    Like reading this forum but got to say Neil that is a total misunderstanding of what dc has said. It's simple. Criticise all you want but don't be abusive. That is all he is trying to say. Some of our "wonderful " fans totally lack class. Where I sit most are embarrassed by a couple of loudmouth "fans" who berate certain players before they've even touched the ball. Carlos had to go but he and dc do not deserve your very contrived and for most fans inaccurate and subjective slant on swfc and reality. Plot and counter plot??? He just wants respect. That is all. He admits he makes mistakes . Ok let's go back to Allen/Strafford/ manderic etc. Then we'll be reminded of how crap things can really be. Onwards and upwards with the next phase of "Wednesday are back ".
  5. My first game Feb. 21st 1961. Wednesday 1-0 Forest. Crowd 35,199. I was 8 and my dad took me after saving up for a few weeks so that we could sit in the South. When we scored I jumped in the air wildly waving my arms shouting "goal!!!!!" Much to the amazement of the posh people sat around us. Now at 65 I have a ST in the South and still do the same . Same reaction haha. We finished 2nd. to the double winning Spurs side. Thought it would always be like that??? Best match was the 5-4 against Man Utd. as already mentioned. Lived in Castleton in the Peak. Village was pretty much 50/50 Wednesday/Man Utd. Couldn't wait to get home. Best atmosphere - Cardiff 2005, Brighton Play off Semi. Wycombe 2012, Boxing Day Massacre and Blackburn away in April 1980 just 15 mins. drive from where I now live. Night match. So many Wednesdayites. What a racket. Promoted 2 games later. Saddest - losing in 1966 Cup Final. Who the hell was Trebilcock ??? Still not got over it.
  6. Thanks guys will probably go for vpn. as there's other stuff I'd like to watch.
  7. Cheers Janikowski. Just looked at that. Do you have to sign up/download something to watch it?
  8. Anyone know the best way to watch L**ds match in Whistler BC Canada? KO 4 am here but got my laptop. Will arise from my slumber for this. Also have sky go but doesn't work out here. Cheers.
  9. Nigel is right. After my 54 years of supporting the Wednesday MM is without doubt the best chairman we have had. He has felt the same highs and lows that we feel. He fell in love with this very special club as we have all done. He didn't tell any porkies (forgive the sad analogy) and if you can't see him fighting back the tears in that interview then, brutally, I feel very sorry for you. At his age making money is not a major motivator. What's the point? You can't take it with you.But you can make a difference to thousands of Wednesdayites lives and their community and that's what motivated him and should be how he is remembered because that is what he did. Exciting times ahead Many thanks Milan a real football man.
  10. Standerino - I'm skiing in Whistler for a few weeks. Have done so for the past 7 years. Vancouver is a terrific city and is surrounded by a stunning environment if you like the outdoor life. If I was 30 years younger I would have no hesitation moving out here but I'm not sure of the logistics of how you would do it i.e. jobs, immigration etc. The Canadians in BC are incredibly friendly and have a great lifestyle. We've made lots of good friends over the years. I would definitely consider it for a year initially. Lots of people from the UK work in Whistler doing seasonal jobs and have a great time. Hope that helps - UTO.
  11. Anyone know of any links that would let me watch the PNE game broadcast on Sky as I'm in Vancouver (Whistler) at the moment. Cheers.

    Preston roll call

    Me + wife (Bolton fan) can anyone lend me a Megson mask so that I can really upset her - she actually goes to more Wednesday games than Bolton - she says our fans are brilliant and loves the athmosphere of away games and derbies ("electric atmosphere") We don't agree about Megson though so everybody wear your masks In- laws are Nobbers - got to win this one - sick of draws at sleepdale.
