  1. There's a new(ish) book about it all . My thoughts simply are that the Burtenshaw era was the 'Lowest Ebb' for the club. Although the team fell further in terms of league position - under the stewardship of Len Ashurst and chairman Bert McGee - there was by that stage a plan. Steve Burtenshaw was one of the few people who didn't want to talk to me about the period. He found it depressing and upsetting I was told. Wrong man, wrong time, wrong place are my thoughts of his time at S6. Good coach, but joining a club with no money, with players used to failure and with no
  2. Cheers, it was my Grandad's who bought it new in the 1920s/30s. Passed on to my Dad, and when he passed away, it came to me. Hopefully I've got plenty more years in the tank - but eventually it's going to my kids. I wouldn't sell it for a million quid.
  3. Detailed and positive review in this month's Backpass magazine. It ends as in the photo Well worth retro football fans picking up a copy anyhow I would say, plenty in there including a detailed obituary of Big Jack.
  4. My first season watching the Owls. First game as an 8 year old was a faintly disappointing 1-1 draw with Shrewsbury. I was hooked. Have been ever since
  5. Yes, I do realise all that. I was somewhat flippant about not caring about Derby's guilt or innocence. My problem is the incompetent way it's policed/judged. The EFLs handling of both Derby and our cases was nothing short of abysmal. Having made a pig's ear of charging Derby - they now have the brassneck to appeal. The championship season starts on Saturday, but again the league table is a fiction until the various cases are settled. To me, it is clear that the clubs (EFL) cannot regulate themselves, and an independent regulator must be the way forward. I know other vi
  6. I don't really care about whatever it is Derby were charged with, or their guilt or innocence. It is simply ludicrous that the Championship is 'governed' in this way. The EFL is not capable of what it needs to be capable of, it should be replaced with an independent regulator.
  7. It's just over (the equivalent of) three games per goal in terms of minutes played. I'll see if I can find the link. I remember if being better than Marcus Tudgay, the last player to score 50 goals for the club.
  8. I'd have him back in a heartbeat. #kosovanpele
  9. I think his efforts as coach, assistant and for seven games in 1974 - caretaker - should not be overlooked. A man who stood up to be counted when the club needed him I feel.
  10. Can I have a trip on your prize of the massive yacht when it gets sorted please?
  11. 13 minutes before I need to go to meeting. Hope I don't miss it!;
  12. 29 left .. I'm on a break at work if it happens in the next 20 minutes I'll try and screenshot it
  13. It's going to be tomorrow I think, hopefully the mods are keeping a very close eye on the whole thing. I'd hate for it to pass unnoticed!
  14. My Owlstalk home page looks something like that. I'm glad the ad is for lego today (thanks kids) - rather than the mature ladies looking for love website that used to appear regularly on there!
  15. Just over 600 posts to go. Hoping for a bank holiday s*** storm to get through them quickly
  16. Wonder if I'll be able to read the number on the back of the home shirt this year? Pretty much impossible against the stripes last season.
