    Sheffield Wednesday
  1. Why the obsession with Ipswich? Can we please have a Sheffield Wednesday kit . Blue white stripes and black shorts. Is really quite easy And no I will not be buying this or last seasons shirts
  2. 5 and 6 in a row

    It does look like a highest attendance value doesn't it? This is more accurate http://www.worldfootball.net/attendance/eng-league-one-2011-2012/1/

  4. The day Ian Knight had his leg broken by a horrendous and unnecessary tackle .
  5. Bitter on Tap

    I have been amazed in the last 24 hours how many people do not know the offside rule properly. If the player is nearer to the goal line than 2 of the opposition players at the moment that the ball is played foward to them then they are offside. It is any 2 opposition players . One of them doesn't have to be the goalkeeper. Oh and it has never been the case that one of them has to be the goalkeeper. It is just usually keeper and one other as the keeper is usually last man. Ie 2 opposition players have to be between you and the goal if it is played forward to you
  6. Hat Trick Heroes

    thanks, It was a cold cold night but still enjoyable. Seem to remember the mighty Larry May played that night too - what a treat
  7. Hat Trick Heroes

    I was at Maine rd about 1986 when I seem to recall colin walker (the bin man of New zealand) got 3 vs Stockport County. There were onlt about 2000 of us altogether in the enormous ground (it was like a reserve match) and we won 7:0. Does anyone have the stats for this - did another play get a hat-trick too - so long ago :)
  8. Laury Madden tuning full width of pitch to "tackle" Peter Red. I thing Reid landed on the running track and bounced a few times. Reid had been dishing it out all the game until that moment.
  9. Every tackle Brighton players are diving at the ground.
  10. MK Dons Goalkeeper Prombles

    Out of interest - do you have a goalkeeping coach? - most clubs have a 40+ year old ex pro just dying to play just one more game. I see stoke dug one up last night :) I see you do - http://www.mkdons.com/team/staff-profiles/ Paul Heald . Bring him on !
  11. MK Dons Goalkeeper Prombles

    Seems a bit unprofessional to me - they should have invoked the 7 day loan rule - got in cover and then perhaps appealed. Unless they have another even younger keeper available they would surely have been allowed. Still - if they want to risk having to put an outfield player in goal that's their bad! Wonder what Cardiff fans would feel like though if they did and Wednesday scored a hat-full (I've been a support too long to expect it to happen but it could). ho-hum
  12. Who were your Wednesday 'Heroes'

    Bolder Blackall Grant Smith Pickering Johnson Mellor Leman King McCulloch Curran So much so I can still reel that team off after 37 years.
  13. PFA Player of the Month!

    Sheffield Wednesday striker Fernando Forestieri has been named the PFA Fans’ Player of the Month for October in the Sky Bet Championship. It's been a fine month for Wednesday during which they've remained unbeaten and picked up 12 points on their rise to eighth in the Championship. Forestieri, who joined the club from Burnley in the summer, put in a number of fine performances, scoring three goals on his way to the award for the second tier. Burnley??????? Good Grief

I also remember the goal vs liverpool. burst between two defenders in the box and poked it in. Oh and Matt Clarke was subsequently shown to have not quite touched it outside the area.
  15. George Courtney. Seem to remember Lee Chapman being sent off for nothing in one match.
