  1. One of those stats that assumes football was invented in 1992.
  2. Realising that, to football fans in their mid-20s, we're a second/third tier yo-yo club.
  3. For me, the most genuinely interesting Wednesday-related thing in the past 3 years has been when that footage of the Oxford away game from 90/91 turned up. Says it all, really.
  4. Ah, okay. You've presented some good evidence there, and I was only 10 at the '85 game. Guess something that makes dating some of these games tricky is that teams kept the same kits for a few seasons in those days. It's all fascinating stuff though, thanks for starting this thread!
  5. You sure this wasn't from the 85/86 season (we won 3-2)? That was my second ever game and I defo remember City wearing that black/red chessboard shirt.
  6. I feel that Sheffield is very much a city stuck in the early-mid ‘90s. That period was not only great for both our football clubs but there was also a real sense that our city was progressing faster than a lot of our near neighbours. Think of all the exiting projects that were going ahead: Supertram, Don Valley Stadium, Ponds Forge, Sheffield Arena, The Ski Village. Plus (even if you don’t necessary like the place) Meadowhall, which was at the time Europe’s largest shopping mall! Even club nights like Gatecrasher attracted people from across the UK. We just never pushed on from there, in fact
  7. It goes down well. Sorry! * hails taxi, not a D one *
  8. And if they'd gone on to win the FA Cup, that would have 'outranked' our League Cup win.
  9. Just days after Remembrance Sunday and we invite someone who's openly fascist to the club. Very poor from SWFC.
  10. Not suggesting it's at all realistic for us, however, Millwall went on a heck of a run in the second half of last season and only just fell short.
  11. Seems that a lot of people on this thread are just basing their view of students on The Young Ones.
  12. JJ tore us to pieces for Oldham in that early game at Hillsborough.
