  1. Anyone know of any Football managers Past or Present that support Sheffield Wednesday. The ones that I can think of are: Howard Wilkinson Jim Smith (God rest him) Chris Turner Gary Megson. Anyone know of anymore? I'm talking more managers who've supported them all their lives not managers who've had a soft spot for the owls since managing them e.g. Brian Laws, Carlos etc. Stay home and stay safe everyone.
  2. Go to 41:30 to watch Big Kev take part in a game on Noels House Party back in 1998. Stay home and stay safe. WAWAW.
  3. There are thousands of Professional Footballers in the U.K. today and unbelievably not one of them is said to be gay (in public anyway). As we know only one professional footballer in the UK has ever come out whilst he was playing (Justin Fashanu) and that was 30 years ago, since then, no one. So what do you think would happen if you saw on the news tomorrow that a current Sheffield Wednesday player had publicly come out? How would the media react (both local and national), how would the Sheffield Wednesday fans react? How would social media react? I think a player coming out today would be a blessing and a curse for him. A blessing because the times are changing and more and more people are much more comfortable with accepting who they are and who other people are. But also a curse because with the current trolling and abuse on social media a player who came out would receive online homophobia like you would not believe. So how would you react and how do you think the other Sheffield Wednesday fans would react if this happened? Would the fans protect him, support him, abuse him, refuse to go to games if he played, or just sit on the fence? What do people think? I personally think it would depend on the player, I think if it was a popular player who came out he would receive more support than if it was a not so popular player. I know this is quite a bold topic but unfortunately homophobia is still rife in football, yes the times are changing but not quickly enough or someone else would have come out by now. What do people think? WAWAW
  4. Sorry for another Nuhiu thread. Currently abroad in America and was speaking to a guy who used to follow Wednesday a fair bit in the 90's and early 00's. I was telling him about our current squad and was thinking of the type of players like Nuhiu that we have had in the past and I realised that it was a real struggle. The only ones that I said had a vague resemblance of the big man was Andy Booth and Shefki Kuqi, not much pace but good strength, good in the air and good work rate (especially Andy Booth). Anyone remember any past players that reminds you of Nuhiu. It was only when I was talking to the guy earlier that I realised just how much of a one off the big man really is. WAWAW P.S. I'm a Nuhiu fan so would really appreciate fans giving proper responses to this post that are relevant to the subject, not the morons coming on here just to comment that he is rubbish.
  5. It's 17 years since our last hat-trick in the league at Hillsborough, the MK Dons game was away from home.
  6. Sheff Wed 5-2 QPR Gerald Sibon, the man who earlier in the season had come under fire for lacking the appetite for First Division football, put in a vintage display and grabbed a hat-trick as Sheffield Wednesday ran rampant against a sorry QPR. The Owls are now unbeaten in four home games and on this form look good value to move up the table, but Rangers have not won for 12 games and are stranded in the bottom three. Wednesday had lost their last two League games before today's turnaround and it was Rangers who started the brighter. Steve Morrow missed a great chance for QPR, firing wide from six yards before Sibon scored the first on five minutes. Alan Quinn chased a hopeful punt down the left which Ludek Miklosko could only half clear to Sibon who beat his marker with a neat stepover before firing a low shot into the far corner. Looped over Rangers were back on level terms with a well-taken goal from Peter Crouch on 10 minutes. Steve Harkness tried to shield the ball and let it run out of play but Crouch robbed him before coolly slotting the ball between Kevin Pressman's legs. The post them came to Wednesday's rescue when Crouch's deflected effort looped over the advancing Pressman. However, Sibon put Wednesday back in front seven minutes before the break. Clarke Carlisle was penalised for a late challenge on Morrison and Sibon kept his free-kick low as the wall jumped in unison, and the ball crept over the line. Morrison then put Wednesday in command with a well-taken effort on the turn in the final minute of a thoroughly entertaining first half, bagging his seventh of the season with a sweet right-foot shot. Hapless visitors The home side started the second half strongly and Sibon completed his hat-trick on 50 minutes. A succession of slick passes moved the ball down the right flank before it was pulled back inside to Sibon who played a fine one-two with Booth before drilling past Miklosko. On-loan striker Efan Ekoku heaped more misery on the hapless visitors when he nodded in Quinn's deep cross at the back post just before the hour. To their credit, QPR continued to battle, but although Crouch scored with a far-post header with 20 minutes left and the tireless Gavin Peacock hit the bar, it was too little too late for Rangers. Sheff Wed: Pressman, Haslam, Harkness, Walker, Quinn, Sibon, Booth, Hendon, Westwood, Ekoku, Morrison. Subs: Stringer, Lescott, Hamshaw, Di Piedi, Crane. QPR: Miklosko, Breacker, Morrow, Ready, Peacock, Connolly, Rose, Carlisle, Warren, Crouch, Peschisolido. Subs: Harper, Baraclough, Perry, Koejoe, Lisbie. Referee: M Messias (York). One of the (very) few highlights of our troubled times in the early noughties WAWAW
  7. To be fair they were telling the truth which is a rarity in itself for politicians. I seem to recall though it was more Joe Ashton leading the line rather than David Blunkett although that could be wrong. I can understand why they did it, the fans had obviously been unhappy with the season and rightly so yet nothing was being done about it so people who were in the public eye at the time were basically voicing the fans opinions because there's more chance that their words would be heard. No different today to celebrity fans voicing their concerns about their club on twitter.
  8. I was just putting down a fun fact for the day. If you think its pointless then don't bother clicking on the thread Smarta**e
  9. One more for Nuhiu to beat his season's best in a Wednesday Shirt The big man is on 11 for the season now which is equal to his personal best for Wednesday in the 2014/15 season. I wonder how many people would have predicted that at the start of the season or even at Christmas??? 4 games left lets see if he does it. WAWAW
  10. I have him, regular for the Dutch national team in the 90s as well as playing for some of the top teams in Europe at the time I know but RB was a very tough call because I also had to leave out Dan Petrescu but that's the thing about football, you sometimes have to make sacrifices in your selection. And Steve Watson didn't play for us in the Premier League, he came in much later
  11. Killing some time at Manchester airport so we decided to come up with this, here are the rules. Rules: 25 man squad 2 for every position The remaining 3 have to have come through the Wednesday Academy. You can have any player who played for the owls in the Premier League. The player can be at ANY point in their career, not just at the point they were at when they were at Wednesday, which might mean a few surprise selections. Here goes: Goalkeepers: Chris Woods Bruce Grobbelaar Kevin Pressman Defenders: Andy Hinchcliffe Nigel Worthington Des Walker Nigel Pearson Emerson Thome Paul Warhurst Peter Shirtliff Viv Anderson Roland Nilsson Midfielders: Andy Sinton Regi Blinker Carlton Palmer John Sheridan Wim Jonk Klas Ingesson (God rest him) Ryan Jones Chris Waddle Trevor Francis Strikers: David Hirst Paulo Di Canio Benito Carbone Darko Kovacevic As I said in the rules, this can be players from ANY point in their career. The 3 Academy players I went for were Pressman, Shirtliff and Ryan Jones. Some dubious decisions I know but I imagine a team like that with those players in their peak would cause some real damage to other teams. That's my squad, what's yours???
  12. Thanks for the help, if anyone has anymore information on official number of games and goals for each season then please post on the topic WAWAW
  13. Just wondering if people can help me. I need David Hirst's appearance and goal stats for each season with Wednesday for my database if anyone has that to hand. So far I have got the following: Barnsley: 1985-86: 28 Games, 9 Goals Sheffield Wednesday: 1986-87: 21 Games, 6 Goals 1996-97: 28 Games, 6 Goals 1997-98: 6 Games, 0 Goals Southampton: 1997-98: 30 Games, 9 Goals 1998-99: 2 Games, 0 Goals These appearances include league and cup games, if anyone is able to fill in the gaps between 1987 - 1996 and help then I'd greatly appreciate it. Many Thanks
  14. Correct And a waxwork statue of Hirsty with a ball in one hand and a pint in the other sounds like a top notch idea
