  1. 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!
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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)!
  6. Didn't he get into trouble for fighting with his players on a night out when at Oldham?
  7. £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!
  8. Enjoyed that thanks. Gave me a bit more hope for Saturday.
  9. 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.

  10. I will. I'm probably being dim. Happens a lot. When I get a slap my own head moment I'll let you know!
  11. Might be a few more Owls in and aroun Brum today!
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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???
  15. 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.
  16. Painful as it might seem to some Yorkshire and Black Country folk, there's a lot in common there with the dialect. My gran used to call me a "daft apeth". There are also plenty of thee's and tha's on both sides of the coin. Which reminds me of the most Yorkshire thing I ever heard. At a pub - in Wrexham - waiting for the Owls game - I put my pint to one side. A fellow Owl approached me and pointing at the pint simply said: "Is that thine?"
  17. I don't think I deserve even the B+ for that so thanks! In my defence I've been marking books for ages and my eyes are swimming. I wish a few of the kids I teach could write like young Ryan here - he has a fair talent for it.
  18. Well done Ryan. A very well written piece. The pictures were fascinating too. I spotted a couple of typos - it's a dance troupe - not troop. A good editor should spot any of those anyhow. You're writing style in clear and incisive so I hope you are able to take it further. Get a collection of your best pieces together - a top 20 should be enough. Also get as many qualifications as you can. That's enough with my teacher's head on - back to marking exercise books...
  19. I'm worrying that I'll have to turn to a translator to understand my own kids... http://www.sedgleymanor.com/dictionaries/dialect.html That one made me laugh - the shortening of words to letters isn't too far away from Yorkshire I reckon. Have a go at this: "Where did you put the last biscuit love", "I dunno tintintin" And I still reckon Lower Gornal is Black Country central - it is their own language I'm convinced of it. "Bai" for am not for example. Never heard that anywhere else!
  20. That is actually fantastic. I think I recognise one or two of them from wandering around the Bearwood area. I used to work in Lower Gornal who have their own language based around "am". Odd. Anyhow here's one of my Aunt's poems. I try and keep myself talking reight even if I can't completely influence the kids... http://213.175.206.16/~thurlbb/christinegoodwin.htm
  21. No but the kids are getting a bit of it which worries me. How can a gate be a goite?? They'll be going to Yorkshire bootcamp if it carries on...!
  22. I miss my family being close by and easy access to the Sheffield San Siro - but other than that the West Midlands has been my home for all my adult life (I'm 37 now) so i think I am an adopted Brummie/ Yam Yam...
  23. I've been to watch the Baggies (and Villa and Birmingham) as a neutral. It's never the same as watching the Owls. Like the Hawthorns though - I drive past it most days on my way to work and try not to get too jealous over the next game signs being Liverpool, Man Utd, etc etc. And yes to Bearwood - lived there for eight years until May - now moved just over the border into Oldbury just by Warley Woods park and golf course.
