  2. Like the retro tops from TOFFS...have a few Italian shirts V-neck from the the thirties/forties... Palermo, Venice and Fiorentina (was in Florence last year and a waiter came up and said 'that is a beautiful shirt')...also got a Dukla Prague (home kit...I like to be different)...of course I have the Wednesday ones as well. I've never worn any TOFFs English shirts...although I have been tempted by the Plymouth Argyle 70s away shirt. www.toffs.com
  3. Some team that...people often diss Booth but he was a handful for defenders which left room for Di Canio and Carbone. Happy Memory
  4. Anybody thought that Forestieri might have been late for a team meeting?
  5. Shirts didn't have any way of showing which club they belonged to as I remember; so a Barnsley shirt would be a Bristol City shirt and Manchester United shirt...it was like this with Subbuteo...the teams would be marketed as Sheffield Wednesday/Huddesrsfield Town/Brighton and Hove Albion. I cannot ever remember the Wednesday blue/white sleeve shirt ever sporting a badge. The retro shirts from TOFFS always have badges on but if you look at old photos very few teams wore a badge...but then players stayed at clubs all their careers so they didn't need to kiss the badge.

    Who was

    Remember a game at Coventry in the 90s...not sure about a penalty though.

    Here's a thought...

    Yes, let's hope they spell Atdhe's name correctly. Just sayin'... Glad to see you spotted my deliberate mistake...well done that man!

    Here's a thought...

    Ah but Petrescu and Ndumbu-Nsungu weren't strikers...whereas Atdhe...
  9. There can't have been many Wednesday players who's name ends in the letter 'U' of the ones there are two of them have scored goals in successful Derby wins for Wednesday - Efan Ekoku and Lloyd Owusu. Let's hope they spell Adthe's name right tonight. Just sayin'...

    Good bloke - used to sell the AVTEB and Spitting Feathers fanzines for me back in the day. True Wednesdayite. RIP Ian.

    Full match replays on ifollow

    Used to have the Sky games on Player...the main reason I subscribe is because I can see the full games, not just the highlights which tell you nothing about how people are playing.

  13. Got to be Paul Warhurst...to get to the England squad as a striker in a matter of weeks (only injury prevented him getting a cap, I believe) from being known as a defender is unprecedented. If you watch the season review you will see that he had everything...bravery (as previously alluded to in the Spora game), pace and comfortable shooting with both feet. As a defender his forays up the field used to get the crowd going. Yes, he did throw a wobbler when Francis asked him to go back to defence when Hirsty was fit again (at the time I could sort of understand it because from being a regular centre-back he was on the verge of the England squad as a striker and then being pushed back to defence) I remember the following season before he was sold to Blackburn that we had Hirsty, Bright and Warhurst as our strike force...what could stop us, I thought? I think we went about five or six games before we scored a goal that season. Dalglish bought Warhurst for Blackburn and never played him as a striker (played him in midfield) which I thought was a crazy. Surely, as the great striker he was himself, he had recognised Warhurst's potential. It was almost as if he was punishing him for that brilliant performance that knocked Blackburn out of the cup that year. Warhurst broke his leg not long after and his career waned after that. Hirsty was great...Warhurst should have been great.
  14. This is a Chesterfield kit...right?
