  1. He scored our goal in my first ever away match. What a day that was!
  2. He’ll have to cope with a lengthy injury list as well, as all the players have biscuit legs!
  3. While we all contemplate the likelihood of another spell in League 1 our beloved leader has other problems to consider as the brand new Chansiri Aerospace Dreamliner is unveiled to the world ........
  4. I’m loving these memories of a man who by all accounts was probably one of the finest post war Wednesday players. Anyone else noticed our name change on the Leitch gable in these two pictures of Fantham?
  5. Two of my favourite ever Wednesday photos already included in this thread , the header against Utd and the powerful shot with the North Stand as a backdrop. Why can’t modern day sports photographers capture action like these two classics? I recently came across this rare colour photo which I believe is Fantham hitting a shot at the Leppings Lane end. The stout defender doesn’t look very mobile!
  6. Well we didn’t have to wait long as Courtney refereed the semi final. No wonder we lost!
  7. Back in the days when we called the North Stand the ‘Dunsby Owl Cantilever’.
  8. https://www.owlstalk.co.uk/forums/topic/259600-old-photos-of-hillsborough-stadium/?do=findComment&comment=9053999 I remembered commenting on the picture in the above thread early last year. It certainly takes me back to some of those cracking big attendance night matches in the 80s. The six floodlight pylons certainly created a dramatic scene.
  9. For a few short years we finally had the covered all standing Spion Kop that we had craved for years. The atmosphere on there in the Atkinson/Francis years was frequently amazing.
  10. The fans in most beautiful stand in the world rise as one to celebrate a Wednesday goal
  11. The Rotherham Owls Charabanc polished up and ready for their eventual return
  12. As well as Hirsty’s fantastic goal a couple of things stood out for me in this footage, first that rare thing a goal from Nigel Worthington - what a finish, and second how majestic the covered Kop looked in those few short years between the roof being built and the seats going on.
