  1. Was at Watford that day watching the mighty Owls. How we celebrated in the ground when the results came through and on the train coming home 'Pigs are down , pigs are down pigs are down '.
  2. That's exactly how I remember it Bradowl from the early seventies. Around the grounds on about 15 mins then 30 mins then at half time ,same in second half to full time on both Radio Sheffield and Hallam. Later, think it moved onto actual commentary of a Wednesday or United away match in the second half only.
  3. MIck Lyons famously said after his move from Everton , ' They even sing in the seats here '. !
  4. My Favourite ever Wednesday player , fantastic work rate and attitude. Great tackler and scored a few. Those were the times when boozing in town you would see a group of players , he was always the first to come across to talk to the fans.
  5. Went to Chesterfield away in September 1975 ,a night match in our first season in the 3rd Division , think it was the first time we had played them for many a year. We had just beaten Grimsby 4 -0 the previous Saturday and out of a crowd of 13,000 there must have been around 8,000 Wednesdayites. We were watching from a side terrace and just before kick off the packed away end full of Owls surged forward and hundreds steamed straight across the pitch and onto their kop, the Chesterfield fans legged it to the sides. Their were various pitch invasions throughout the game which of course we lost 1
  6. I remember the second leg at their place , we were going on the Bramall Lane end and a big mob of Wednesday fans walked past and down John Street towards their Kop. In the ground our lot looked a lot lower down behind the goal on the Shoreham compared to the league match in April. Remember Curran scoring an equaliser going round the keeper at the Bramall lane end.
  7. Average first half , very good in the second half.
  8. 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.
  9. 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 fa
  10. United fan's first sentence on football heaven - Let me talk about Wednesday first !
  11. 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 ! ?
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
