  1. Aarons hasn't had much first team football this season. Only played 2 full 90 minutes (plus 1 of 89) whilst in the Fortuna Liga - see attached https://www.transfermarkt.com/rolando-aarons/leistungsdaten/spieler/258188 It's a bit much to expect him to be fully match fit so I think the flashes of excellence are the best we should expect until he gets more games.
  2. Like Ibbo48 above I also went to all the 66 cup matches except for the first against Reading. Vic was never quite the same after the semi having hobbled himself into the ground to help the team. It was painful to watch let alone the pain he went through that day. My memory of Vic was that he played with a smile and looked as if he really enjoyed what he was doing.
  3. 20000 x 10 pounds is 200,000 not 2 million. Would need 20000 fans at 100 pounds for 2m.
  4. Jerry? Had to have a pacemaker back up and retired :-)
  5. I got my ticket for the final through being a member of the supporters club. Had to collect it from Hillsbro if I remember correctly. The supporters club must have had an allocation from Wednesday. My father must have got his ticket in the ballot. Went to all the rounds except Reading. Absolutely gutted for Vic when he was injured in the semi. No subs in those days and he probably did himself more harm by staying on and hobbling around.
  6. Living c.260 miles away I seldom see the Owls live. But looking at the recent highlights and pics and thinking back a couple of seasons, Joao currently looks to be thoroughly enjoying playing and being part of the team. Previously he often looked (IMHO) as if he didn't really want to be here. Long may his current attitude continue.
  7. Spent my 21st in 1968 driving from Sheffield to the Sunderland v Owls match. It started to snow about 40 miles from the ground and continued intermittently until I finally got home about 9pm after a sloooowww, tiring drive. Went straight to bed. Anyone who drives up today in snowy conditions needs sectioning :-) . Don't remember much about the match - finished 0-0. The only 'highlight' I recall was that one Owls player - ? Sinclair - sidefooted the ball over the bar from about 4 feet. Think that it's likely to be a similar result today. Nowt much changes in 49 + years.
  8. Specifically the Chelsea semi final at Villa Park in 1966 (plus all the away games that led up to the final). I went to all except for the first game at Reading
  9. Yet another excellent OMDT. I see that Jos has backed up his new fitness regime by imposing an alcohol free January on the team. Let's hope that Loovens is permanently on the waggon (definition of wain) and that signing the pledge will delay the time when his ability starts to wane :-)
  10. Now now OP. Either you're being intentionally provocative or you weren't at that match and the others at Hillsbro in 66. I was and the West Germany/Swiss match still brings back happy memories of a full blooded open exciting match, far more so than the pass it back, sideways, back again - repeat ad nauseam that most of the current bloated world cups produce.
  11. Hirst first 2 then Liam Williams. Theirs a pen.
