  1. I remember a game at Walsall which we were winning 2-0 with a couple of minutes to go and win a free kick at the edge of the box. I remember thinking that this was nailed on for Sibon to score. Sure enough he ambled in of a couple of yard run up and nailed it into the top corner. Quality. He was by far the best player in years of drivel.
  2. Best crosser of a ball since Steve Harkness :) Brilliant.
  3. Quality. Barkley's second in particular was some goal.
  4. 1002 profile views. Seriously why is anyone looking...?

  5. I'm fated never to be able to go to Blackpool to watch the Owls. All started with the bloody game that was frozen off a couple of years ago - got all the way to Blackpool that time. Couldn't get a ticket for last year's cup game. This year's is midweek in term time so no chance of the day off. I'm going to see how possible it is to drive there and back on the one night I think. Or I could stay in Travelodge and set off for work at 4am...
  6. I must be getting old but I like the, ahem, 'sedate' atmosphere in the South stand...
  7. At notorious puncher Pavel Srnicek sometime in the late '90s: 'I've seen Pavel catch the ball, I've seen Pavel catch the ball...'

  8. There's idiots at all clubs. I sat at the last game against united next to a chap who looked in his thirties and his young son maybe 5 or 6 years old. We had a little chat before the game and he seemed perfectly pleasant. As soon as game kicked off he stood up and spent the next 90 minutes hurling abuse at the blades fans. Didn't seem bothered about the game or his kid. I wondered what he was trying to teach the lad. Having said that I swore a few years ago that I would never go to Owls v Leeds games again. They have been the only games at Hillsborough where I've felt truly threatened. Most trouble only comes to those looking for it. At Leeds games it seems to find people regardless.
  9. I was growing to like him a bit when he was at QPR. Even felt a bit sorry for him when he got the bullet there. Now he's at L***s normal service is resumed and I can safely hate him again!
  10. I also nominate Hirsty's and Blair's. I was at a freezing 0-0 draw at Coventry a few years back watching Enoch SHowumni up front looking like he would never score. Anyhow, Coventry wheeled out a few ex-players at half time. Andy Blair got as bit a round of applause from us as them!
  11. Today was my first league game of the season. The players seem to have plenty of talent but very little direction. It was only when JJ came on that they seemed prepared to have a go. It's DJ's job to give that direction. He's not doing it. MM won't wait. I'll be surprised if he lasts past Monday.
  12. Thought I was on a whole train of Owls fans until I quickly realised that Brighton were playing Derby! Otherwise I saw Derby, Rotherham and Newcastle shirts but no Owls.
  13. On my way to New St for the 11:39 to Sheffield. Will keep my eye out for any fellow Owls. I'll be the one wearing my 'lucky' 99-00 yellow and white away shirt (2games worn, 2 wins, 0 goalsa against so far)!
  14. Didn't he get into trouble for fighting with his players on a night out when at Oldham?
  15. £28 quid for my bro, £26 for me with membership and £18 for my dad add in my train fare from brum and tram fare and a couple of pints and it's bloody expensive. I'll forget all that if the mighty Owls reward me with a win though!
  16. Enjoyed that thanks. Gave me a bit more hope for Saturday.
  17. Aaron played for Villa though I'm not sure he made the first team. Wonder if he's happy for his bro or slightly jealous! Still haven't got the Hirsty reference. Must be dim.

  18. I will. I'm probably being dim. Happens a lot. When I get a slap my own head moment I'll let you know!
  19. Might be a few more Owls in and aroun Brum today!
  20. I went to this game - after I finally got in after 1 and 1/2 hours qeueing for baggage checks and missing the first 15 minutes and first goal. I only went so I could tick off Old Trafford without having to watch Man Utd! Anyhow I didn't see any Owls but did see lots and lots of other shirts. It was very friendly and like no other football match I've been to.
  21. Ha ha - fair play then! I'll confess then to the Baggies being my favourite Midlands team. Less arrogant than Villa, friendlier than Wolves and Blues and bigger than Walsall. There's a bit of shared history too with Meggo and Big Ron managing both and a few players turning out for both- Chris Brunt, Craig Shakespeare, Imre Varadi, Ronnie Wallwork(!) David Burrows(!) And I'm sure some others who were actually talented. Then there's the battle of Bramall Lane which is enough to give this Owl a soft spot for the Baggies. Finally I've always enjoyed going to the Hawthorns. I've seen the Owls win a couple of times which was great. But even when we've lost I've enjoyed the games.
  22. I'm beginning to think that there's something you're not telling us here Liam_Baggies. A love of the Yorkshire accent. Talking to Yorkshire girls on the phone. An appreciation of the dry Yorkshire wit... Do you spend winter Saturdays dreaming of trips up the M5, M6, A38, and M1 stopping off for a quick drink at the Rawson Spring followed by watching a glorious victory at the Northern Nou Camp? In other words, are you a bit of an Owl in disguise???
  23. Always a good few at New Street on match days. The Wycombe game last season was amazing for that. Owls everywhere from New Street up to Sheffield even on the early train I got and the same on the way back.
