  1. Could be worse, they could pronounce it Paʔerson!
  2. Tom Cruise and the Church of Scientology - nobody, not Gibson, not Parry nor the EFL, would fück with such an array of legal talent.
  3. 's dead. Just need to change the date on the death certificate (efl approved loophole apparently).
  4. 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!"
  5. 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

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?

  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Is this some kind of new swear filter with reference to his song? Seems a bit of a mouthful, ooooeeerr missis!
  10. 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.
  11. That might have been my doing; i'm slowly trying to convert 17 million Istanbulites into Wednesdayites. One district at a time! Teaching english makes it easier - first lesson: "Ok class, lets make a sentence with 'We're all.... Aren't we" multiple choice a: Wednesday b: Wednesday or c: Wednesday (for business english i add a fourth option d: unable to mention Wednesday due to trademarking laws and impending legal action")
  12. Come on you blue (green) and white wizards! 31°c and a nice cool beer (8%) UTO
  13. Oyyy, i'm 45 and still attractive, with all my own hair, still slim built etc. I survive on a diet of tea and cigarettes, a large turkish breakfast every morning, and kebabs in the evening. In fact i have to be pretty careful with some of my 18 year old female students who develop a crush on me... Oh wait, i thought i'd logged into tinder, my bad! Anyroad, we are Wednesday - WAAAW©™ (WE'RE ALL ATTRACTIVE AREN'T WE)
  14. Great find that, mate! I had no idea about this match (albeit a friendly). Standard Sheridan (centrocampista!) freekick, amazing how we got used to such quality.
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. Just finished work and heading home on the bus in Istanbul, match finishes at about 1am here (3 hour time difference). No pigs in this part of the world! We owe them a pasting, but I'll settle for one nowt! COME ON YOU BLUE AND WHITE WIZAAAAARRRRDDDDDZZZZZ UTO WAWAW OLDER, BIGGER, BETTER!
  18. 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
  19. ReCant thy foul ways and spread the word: "The Ginge is dead; Long live the Ginge!"
  20. 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
