  1. Average first half , very good in the second half.
  2. You are my Brucie my only Brucie You make me happy when skies are grey Wasted at Villa , legend of Hillsborough Please don't take my Brucie away.
  3. I remember from the old 3rd Division days in the seventies, Millwall came on the kop before kick off in 1975 and were escorted off by the police to the lepp after loads of trouble. Portsmouth came on in 1976 and finished up right in the top corner about 30 of them, police just surrounded them for protection but there wasn't much trouble. Probably most bizarre was when Cambridge came on in their 1978 promotion season, around 50 of them in the Tango triangle corner, think it was easier for the police to put them there for protection rather than the lepp where there was always trouble with our fans mixing in with the away fans, that was if any away fans turned up in those days. Can only remember United in 79 and Bradford City in a night match in 78 bringing any numbers in the old third in them days on the lepp.
  4. United fan's first sentence on football heaven - Let me talk about Wednesday first !
  5. He said the changing ends bit was via the north side before the North Stand was built , so that side must have been popular too with it being covered unlike the kop ! ?
  6. TorryOwl, Ive always wondered before the days of segregation, my Dad talked about changing ends at half time to hopefully see Wednesday score each half, but why was the kop or was the kop more popular ? I would have thought with the leppings lane end having a roof then that would have been better for the atmosphere and staying dry ? ! Cheers for any info.
  7. Don't forget to do the 'selected' numbers part before the draw. Just show the numbers of Spurs Man Utd Chelsea and Man City, nobody else matters to the BBC , sickly to watch.
  8. We have 2 types of fans, the ones who are just happy clappers and the ones who realise something is wrong , the chairman is not a football man although a good honest man, we urgently need a change of manager , money does not guarantee success , let's get back to being a working class club again, let's get our Wednesday back !
  9. Jonny owl, spot on, we all love Carlos but enough is enough, we are going backwards now, no pace is costing us . A new manager and leaders on the pitch are needed .
  10. Pompey owl, you are right ,years ago in the seventies we had no hope , we have now but nobody is leading the way. We are passionate but with no leadership, saw loads of old owls from the seventies in the new Wednesday tap tonight , just worried why we are so laid back.
  11. Can't understand why years ago we would demonstrate under the south stand and now we just do nothing , the football is so negative ,so back foot with no pace. Why are we so middle class it's embarrassing ! The first time ever we have had some money but the manager plays defensive football, would rather watch the team from the seventies havi
