  1. Thats what i was thinking as i read about the supposed influence of saturn - we definitely go through the mill as Wednesday fans, don't we. I realised you were on about the successful periods in our history, at 28 tp 30 year intervals too. It struck me; our very first fa cup win was 29 years after our establishment in 1867 followed by a pretty successful decade culminating in the 1907 cup success. 20 years later we embark on another decade of success (back to back league titles at the end of the 1920s), then lo and behold the 35 cup win 28 years after our last one! Fast forward to the mid sixties (30 years) and in 66 we'd not won a major trophy but we were damn close, and since the late fifties had been the yo-yo team, as well as our runners up spot in div 1 to spurs which would have seen us champions in any other season based on points total. In 62/63/64 we finished 6th in div one each season. And in 63 we had the craziest run of matches in march, april and may (no less than 20 matches in 2 and a half months). 28 years later and the 91 cup win was at the tail end of a decade of a relatively successful period back in the big time. Now? 28/30 years later could just be the beginning of another decade of relative success in the higher echelons hopefully! I guess my point being we get the suffering and reemergence either side of every 28 to 30 year period since 1867!

  2. Saturns return to the original position in the astological chart is every 28 years roughly. It governs order and sacrifice, organisation, learning from past mistakes and bringing in new ways of doing things. It is about age, wisdom and tradition to teach and renew. It involves hardship and difficult decisions to go about things in the right way. It is about death and rebirth and the transition to new life. In animal symbolism, Saturn historically governs nocturnal birds of prey such as the owl. Probobobobobly

  4. If was a reading fan i would have finished university, but i preferred to stay up all night putting the world to rights with my home spun wisdom, so I'm definitely an owl! WAWAW! UTO SBBA

  6. I thought Gabby would have been much more clued up about stuff regarding mental health issues and bereavement given her own family history: https://www.google.com.tr/url?sa=i&source=undefined&cd=&ved=0ahUKEwj_6OWMt5HgAhUM_qQKHQb8DoYQzPwBCAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.telegraph.co.uk%2Fsport%2F2017%2F10%2F09%2Fgabby-logan-comes-mental-health-need-talk%2F&psig=AOvVaw3GwwcsA58K5hhHhZZ7Ix7Z&ust=1548797678592336

  8. Yes mate, the 2nd photo is my son about 4 years ago and it's still my favourite photo. Next photo is about a year and a half ago, he loves all things wednesday especially if he can wear it We live in istanbul and he is desperate to go to hillsborough these days! His name is Ahmed, named after his Turkish grandfather who is a big Trabzonspor fan. He want to score goals and have everyone sing "Ahmed champion"! His mum wants him to support Fenerbahçe, and he always says that if mum asks i like fener and Wednesday, but don't worry dad, i only like wednesday, so dont tell her!
  9. Same for me, i definitely remember being annoyed that they cancelled the footie highlights due to the air strikes starting. Stayed up all night in the vain hope that they would realise the importance of the football highlights, so Wedenesday must have been scheduled to be on. I was also sure it was that Coventry league cup game. There is no way i would have stayed up for any other football related reason! Maybe the last 28 years have been a collective hallucination, and in reality Wednesday have recently collected their 14th champion's league title, and Saddam Hussien turned out to be a massive practical joker and hadn't invaded kuwait after all.
