  1. Etti ***** biscuits (a little more controversial) even the swear filter can't handle this one, suffice to say it would be considered a racial epithet almost anywhere else but Turkey, where it merely a very misguided and utterly unexportable 'oreo' biscuit!
  2. My favourite brands here, based on nothing more than the hilarity it causes me are; 'Tittiz' car care systems; Etti ***** biscuits (a little more controversial); and as you mentiioned, the time-honoured 'Arcelik' quite possibly the last thing i want emblazoned across my fridge door, puts me right off my sucuklu yumurta!
  3. Haha I follow them on Facebook, as my wife's family are from the black sea region (Rize and Trabzon). I googled if there was any club called Wednesday in Turkey years ago, and they popped up. They are in the Samsun city region and I think they are some sort of feeder club to Samsunspor in the Turkish Super Lig, or if not they are big fans of Samsunspor (the biggest club in that city). It keeps me out of arguments about which is my Turkish club because when I'm asked who i support i obviously say wednesday, and telling the Turks i genuinely don't care who wins or loses in the matches here doe
  4. That Sheridan goal did seem to take an age crossing the line, didn't it! Although i think Sheridan's placement was better than Paterson's - right into the corner, whereas Paterson's effort seems to go under Begovic. Either way, Paterson took the shot unexpectedly early as mentioned above, and their goalie will have nightmares about it for ages... Happy days!
  5. Could be worse, they could pronounce it Paʔerson!
  6. Tom Cruise and the Church of Scientology - nobody, not Gibson, not Parry nor the EFL, would fück with such an array of legal talent.
  7. 's dead. Just need to change the date on the death certificate (efl approved loophole apparently).
  8. Haha swiss toni was the best! Place i used to work at had a fire officer who looked just like him. I was in the mandatory fire safety lecture and all i could think of was: "putting out a fire is much like making love to a beautiful woman. You have to whip out your hose, firmly position your helmet, and spray your foam all over the hot stuff!"
  9. Now I'm not saying Monk, Dawson or Wildsmith are anywhere near as good at what they do as Big Ron, Pressman or Turner were, but who was Atkinson's number one? In that promotion/league cup winning season they played 23 league games each, and i distinctly remember Pressman being dropped after a few poor performances, and (my memory is a bit stretched at this point!) i think Turner also got dropped at some point for similar reasons. The previous season (relegation) was similar until Big Kev got injured on New Years day v Man City so Turner played the rest of the season (Hirst finished
  10. 1) What was the first Wednesday match you can remember ever going to? Wednesday 2 v 1 Newcastle, Easter Monday 1982 2) Who was your Wednesday hero growing up? As a proper young un - Bannister Varadi / As a teenager going to matches home and away - Hirst and Sheridan 3) Who's the greatest ever Wednesday player? Waddle 4) What's the best match you've ever been to? 4-4 with Chelsea 5) What's the best away day you've ever had? League Cup Final 1991 St Sheridan's Day "dink" 6) What's the best football ground you've ever been to? After Hillsborough then Old Trafford 7) What's the
  11. Totally agree mate, if anyone deserves a statue at this club then big Jack is at the top of that list. I'm surprised how shocked and saddened i am by this news about someone i never met, but this has hit me harder than i expected and prooves to me the measure of the man: RIP LEGEND
  12. Really sad news, and what a legend for Sheffield Wednesday, England, the Republic of Ireland, and Leeds United. As a player and as a manager achieved great things, yet remained a no nonsense, down to earth, genuinely lovely man (though i would want to have got into his bad books!) Rest In Peace BIG JACKIE CHARLTON, WEDNESDAY FOREVER
  13. Is this some kind of new swear filter with reference to his song? Seems a bit of a mouthful, ooooeeerr missis!
  14. That's exactly what I've been thinking about the standard of refs in england for some time. It's difficult to prove corruption accusations, but incompetence is clearly demonstrated week in week out, and as you say, the 'accountability' or if you prefer, the proof of the pudding, is that even FIFA (not unknown for their own levels of corruption) think our refs aren't good enough to officiate at the world cup! There was a time when the best refs in the world were usually from Britain, but now we just see rank incompetence protected by an 'omerta' like silence from the authorities.
