  1. Just checked the "Official" SWFC website, line-up shown on the matchday page shows that number 44 is playing but we don't know his name!!
  2. Please send Mr Stroud the following extract from the Laws of the Game: "A player in an offside position at the moment the ball is played or touched* by a team-mate is only penalised on becoming involved in active play by: interfering with play by playing or touching a ball passed or touched by a team-mate or interfering with an opponent by: preventing an opponent from playing or being able to play the ball by clearly obstructing the opponent’s line of vision or" I guarantee the next time we see such 'interference' it will be flagged offside, simply because it is!!
  3. 25 years in total, shiney-arsed crabfat. Didn't miss a game home or away (on the thumb) for two and a half seasons until the '66 cup final. Joined on 6 May 66, cup final ticket in hand, but had to watch from the back row of the tv room at RAF Hereford with a Liverpool supporter (Paul Jones). Hereford to Waddington (Giant Voice 69) Roy Shingler a Chief Tech off Line Sqn used to give me a lift in his Mk10 Jag and park in the yard of a pub his brother ran on Penistone Road that's gone now. To Gan then back to Patrington (Staxton Wold), playing for 11 Group and Strike, then Northwood where I was one of two RAF guys (a Booty in goal and 8 matelots) in the team (HMS Warrior) that won the Navy Cup at Chatham (Ron Bramley, another Wednesdayite, was the other). Next year should have won the RAF Cup at Uxbridge but 42nd goal of the season disallowed by some dumb referee and lost in extra time. SHAPE, Belgium (playing with Owl Ash Saywell Army from Dinnington I think). Boulmer, Stanmore Park (Bentley Priory) where we knocked the RAF champions, Abingdon, out of the RAF Cup (massive giant-killing) our left back was Mick (Spin) Dwyer and a Blunt, Mick Petty, played midfield. Scampton next from where I selected JOC Maastricht over RAF Stanley in '82. Last five years on the computer at Innsworth. Out now for nearly 30 years living in Stockport. Season ticket on North for ages where I'm just another (or possibly THE) gobby, referee-hating, Wednesday lover. WAWAW
  4. He's a cheat! Bruce is a cheat, I can imagine his last words to Dawson at Wembley to make sure he stops Fessi, particularly after the miscarriage a few weeks earlier! They will do anything to win. There's no place in football for cheats, I don't want any in Wednesday's team thank you. The problem is that the referees and the authorities do nothing about it.
  5. Cheadle, Stockport at 9.00 then on to Chapel-en-le-Frith. Parking on someone's drive in Wembley. Green Man about 1.00. Buzzing!!
  6. A message for mancowl08. Travelling on your own must be a ball-ache. I'm going from Cheadle plus another Cheadle and one from Chapel. You're welcome to contact me if you're interested. I think we're leaving around 9.00 ish, parking about a mile from Wembley on someone's drive. We're all in block 125, similar position to our seats at Hillsborough.
  7. Not trying to usurp you but I have a spare ticket for the North, on the edge of the penalty area at the kop end. My lad's got to work and I don't want it wasted so someone can have it if they want. I'll take a donation if one's there but not absolutely necessary. The alternative is an empty seat when someone could be part of the day and our's and Wednesday's success.
  8. How good to hear from the experts: couldn't go but looked long on youtube; not as good as Rotherham's; netting installed wrongly; it'll be cut to 25mm for the season. I wonder what the stimpmeter reading will be? Believe it or not the firm that installed the pitch knew what they were doing, they're the best in the business. And our ground staff are employed because they know what they're doing. The money spent has been an investment, long term, to give OUR team a surface that they can display their skills on. What I saw yesterday was excellent, the pitch and the team. So leave the pitch alone. It's not to be judged on one view, one friendly match, one week or one month. Come back at the end of the season after we've had proper look at it and criticise it if you must but don't forget last year's pitch which is what we should be comparing it with (although you seem to have done that already). I'm really looking forward to every game this season. New owner, new pitch, new players, new attitude. We have spend so many years doing the same thing and churning out the same thing, mostly rubbish. You never know, all this new stuff might just give us a new outcome. Everything's positive, why don't you join?
  9. Big Stu in the North started singing 'We only get good refs' when we were 2 up and that caused a ripple around us.
  10. Really miffed with us at the moment. I know we could do with a creative midfielder or two and a central defender and a full back and a striker but, worst thing about the team is that we can't even foul properly. All our fouls are accidents, all our bookings are mistakes, can't remember a proper deliberate foul this season. Everyone comes to S6 and kicks stuff out of us, we don't react at all. OK the mist did come down on Lierra once, but the flying elbow was just him demonstrating his golf swing. Clayton last week, three cynical fouls before he got booked and at least another three after. Or is the trick to have two ginger bearded gimps so the man in black doesn't know who is who? When did we last stop someone running through us??
  11. I've been around a lot longer than you lot. Went on the 'thumb' to all of the away games in the FA Cup in '66. Reading, 2-3, Newcastle, 1-2, Huddersfield, 1-2, Blackburn 1-2 in the biggest mud bath ever, then away at Villa Park for Chelsea 2-0. Joined the RAF on the 6th May and they wouldn't let me use my ticket for final, never forgave them. Cried my eyes out on the back row of RAF Hereford's TV room with a Liverpool fan. Actually went on the thumb to all the away games that season and the season before, it was the only means of travel we could afford.
