  1. Its looking like Brum kept their squad together despite financial difficulties so unless they enter admin it looks like they're ok. Only bonus being that its my nearest game. Wolves look to be in freefall so you never know. Otherwise its difficult to look further than Barnsley, Bristol and Peterboro. No sad loss really.
  2. https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/456418561061945/ We nearly got 2000 didn't we! Link again here. https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/456418561061945/
  3. I got into Villa park for £5 a couple of years ago for a European game. Villa lost and played their reserves. It felt like a Carling Cup tie in the early rounds. What we'd give for a European tour! It just proved that Villa need a dose of reality.
  4. Not a Brummie - but have lived in and around Birmingham for 20 years or so. If we're generalising I'd say that Brummies are a lovely bunch: welcoming, not arrogant but funny. Blues on the other hand attract a fair few nob-ends and it's never a particularly pleasant place to visit. The OP has my sympathies.
  5. And the prize for today's biggest sweeping generalisation goes to...
  6. Won't let me quote as I'm on my phone, but Boy Wonder nailed what I was getting at really. Other clubs can have whatever history they have or haven't but they're not the Wednesday. Part of the deal supporting the Owls is surely that we can be a bit poo poo much of the time?
  7. How about Wednesday or Birmingham City then? Since our relegation in 2000 they've reached two cup finals, winning one. Played in Europe, won a play off final and experienced both promotion to and relegation from the Prem. And now they're poo again. What do we reckon chaps!!
  8. Jobsworths are everywhere. I've lived in Brum for nearly 20 years now and have developed a bit of a soft spot for Villa, West Brom and Walsall. I cannot bring myself to like the Blues though despite marrying into a family of Bluenoses (even that term makes me wince). It's just bloody grim there. One day we'll beat 'em again at St Andrews.
  9. I live just outside Birmingham and have a bit of a soft spot for Villa. However, I'd love to see them relegated so that their fans see a bit of the 'real world'. And yes of course I'd swap our recent history with theirs.
  10. I didn't hear anyone boo his name. A few tuts and rolled eyes though. It was like my little corner of the South Stand had taken a trip to Brum for the night!
  11. 83-84 - first games I went to as an 8 year old. 90-91 - quality football and first away days with friends Early 00's - we were really poor but I had a job and no responsibilities so could afford to go a fair bit. 04-05 - Cardiff! Last season COG and Wycombe! Enjoying this year to be fair also.
  12. That's dedication though innit making it all the way from GLasgow on your own for a night game! Fair play to that man!
  13. I rang up for mine and they accepted that there were problems with internet so didn't charge me any extra
  14. I've never found the view anything special. Tend to be stuck on the bottom tier and if close to the Blues fans in the adjoining stand it can get a bit erm 'fruity'. Mind you I was right by the corner flag in 2001 when Di Piedi scored a last minute winner and rand down to the corner to swing the post complete with flag around his head in celebration. I've been waiting for something similar ever since! This must be my fifth or sixth visit since then and we've always lost. They're now crap and skint and we owe them one!
  15. Got mine. I've given up any hope of converting Mrs Bearwood. Just working on my kids. They may grow up with a Black Country accent but I'm determined they'll be Owls!
  16. My Dad is an Owl, so was his dad. Took me when I was eight in 83. Went a few times a year with him and my brother for the rest of the 80s. Started going on our own and with friends in late 80s\ early 90s. Moved to uni in Birmingham in 93 and kind of lost interest for a while. Don't know why but started going again in late 90s and lots during the grim years of the early 00's. Gone full circle now as I usually meet my brother and Dad for home games a few times a year. Living just outside Birmingham still but means there are usually a few localish away games I can manage each year also.
  17. Same here for me too. I've been going since 83 and it's Worthington by a long distance. I enjoyed watching King, Hinchliffe for a very short period and Reda is a monster but none of them come anywhere close really.
  18. I'll just give a bit of a plug for the West Midlands Owls page on facebook here: https://facebook.com/#!/groups/4564… We've a bit game coming up at Brum in a week or two. Be good to get a Massive turnout on a Tuesday night!
  19. It's a good 20-25 min walk though there are buses.
  20. Bloomfields Road Blackpool as every time I want to go I'm scuppered. Started with the game that was called off one Xmas time. Had a ticket and got all the way to Blackpool that day. Since then there's been a cup match sold out v quickly and this year a feckin night match.
  21. We know how if feels to be massive We don't know how it feels to be small This is how it feels to be the greatest club of them all
