    Steve Bruce and Neil Swarbrick

    I work right next to Villa Park. Had to put up with all sorts of banter the week afterwards. All I thought is that both the ref and bloody Snodgrass were cheats. I normally take the rough with the smooth with that kind of thing, but I was so angry that day. I'm getting a bit vexed again now thinking about it :( On a happier note we did see Sean "Flair" Clare's best performance for us :)

    Favourite Wednesday Goals

    Your picture reminded me that Hooper's late winner at St Andrews a year or two back was pretty good for a Midlands based owl.

    2 x Blues Tickets Wanted

    Or you can show off having got them I see :)

    2 x Blues Tickets Wanted

    No help for this, but if youre not in the West Midlands Owls facebook group then join us :) we can feel sorry for each other about not getting tickets for our local away days.
  5. Yes it was my wife who eventually made me realise something was up. I'm very grateful for her intervention. That and a sympathetic GP.
  6. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) helped me when I was suffering with depression and anxiety last year. I had nothing like the problems that some have expressed on here (well done and thank you to all). Just wanted to share that it helped me at the time and gave me some tools which so far have kept me on track.

    Taking two others up

    God I despise L***s. So not them. Nor United really though I can see it would be good for the city. So Forest (good club, great pedigree) and West Brom (local to me decent fans) for me.

  9. Saw a couple of Owls fans up there this summer. No Blades but then I don't suppose they stray far. Usually try and take in a Fleetwood game either a friendly or first match of the season. Didn't bother this time, stopping off at Wigan on the way up instead to watch the mighty Owls. Can't stand bloody Joey Barton, never mind Evans :( Shame as I'd happily pay to watch RW again. Real entertainment.
  10. Genuinely love it up there. Feels like the end of the earth. Properly desolate. Might be an acquired taste though :)

  12. Ive been to a few Fleetwood matches over the last few years as we often go on holiday up there. Felt they had a good set up, family friendly, welcoming, decent prices and a good view. They even ended last year with John Sheridan in charge. Great stuff for an Owl :) This year they've brought in Joey Barton and Chedwyn. So I've thought balls to them. 'Orrible pair. So good luck Ross, but I can't be supporting you feeding the success of that pair :(

    Spiritual home of the West Mids Owls is Smethwick. Well Bearwood anyhow. Agree that Villa and Baggies are usually decent. Birmingham City are who get my goat - small club in the big city - remind us of anyone?!

    I don't think that they've entirely missed out on the money. The Randy Lerner/Martin O'Neill years saw them spend millions and finish seventh in the premier league every season. Since relegation they've spaffed gazillions of parachute cash - Abrahams and Kodjia up front don't come for cheap for example. Bad management not lack of cash for me.
