  1. Just heard Barnsley v Derby off - failed pitch inspection. Makes a win today almost certain to get us out of the bottom 3.
  2. These OMDTs from his Lordship are the only thing that can be relied upon to bring a bit of a smile on matchdays.
  3. Having watched the Owls from the late 1950s and regularly from 1961, in the early 1960s Peter Swan was certainly an international class centre half. Powerful, commanding, technically first class and hard when necessary, Peter was the most commanding centre half I've seen for Wednesday. (I didn't see very much of Des Walker having moved away from Sheffield in 91). Also my memory is that he wore shorter shorts than were usual at the time .
  4. Ariel's ? How great is his knowledge of other old motorbikes and could he fix an old Francis Barnett?
  5. I've been to countless non memorable 26 December matches since starting to watch the Owls in the early 1960s but one I do remember is away at Sunderland 26 Dec 68. Having made a late decision to drive up there I regretted it by the time I was half way there and it started snowing. Pressed on and got into the ground with about 5 minutes gone. The game ended 0:0. My abiding memory is of one of our forwards (was it Sinclair?) missing from a yard out by side footing a cross over the bar. The drive back to Sheffield took about 4 hours and feeling rather tired I went straight to bed.
  6. Agreed but the payments over and above the £7k are said to be the balance of the contractual payments so if there is a 'fiddle' that would be a very stupid way to try it on.
  7. People in a financial hole do strange things.
  8. I just hope that DC hasn't been so stupid to have bought what is claimed to be a legal tax avoidance method of paying salaries by some ********** firm of accountants. If so, whilst it may work in the short term, speaking as a retired Tax Inspector, the club is quite likely to find itself on the receiving end of a very extensive investigation, possible litigation and ultimately a massive bill for PAYE, NIC plus interest and penalties.
  9. Well I'm now 72 and we were in the same year at HS so could well be him.
  10. I remember this article. I was friends with Chris at High Storrs and know that he had a good career in the RAF after H S.
  11. Liam starts for Scots. Patterson sub - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/live/football/54888789
  12. Shaw? Even though he's now been replaced I see from the Wednesday site that he's down as a midfielder not a centre half. Has he been playing as a defender for the under 23s?
  13. Takes me back to a cup match I went to, living as I now do in North Devon, (can't remember which competition) - Tiverton Town v Worksop with Chris on the right wing. The Tiverton left back was, to put it mildly, a bit agricultural and gave Chris a bit of a battering. A few nice touches from Chris but well past his best.
