  1. 8 minutes in and I haven’t been able to watch any of it yet just buffering
  2. No not joking that’s the cost, it covers cup games as well so you could get more than the 23 league games. We have 4 in the car and split it
  3. We park in hillsborough park you get a season long pass from Swfc but the cost for the season this year is £384 so not a cheap option.
  4. I may not know what I’m talking about but why are footballers given more job security than the rest of us. What if clubs were given the right to make players redundant. Then the chairman would only need to escrow the amount needed to pay redundancy for the squad. That would mean that the 25 man squad each on a 4 year £ 20 million contract would equate to an escrow payment of around £21 million ( enough to pay each player 2 months wages as a redundancy payment ) rather than the £1 billion calculated by blondeau. Surely £21 million would be affordable for most wealthy owners.
  5. Bullens former teammate and countryman J P McGovern at the game last night. He’s done some coaching and managing in Scotland. Could Bullen be thinking of bringing him in to the coaching team.
  6. Don’t panic it’s all been a horrible dream
  7. The wednesdayite car park is relocating to Hillsborough College. Fewer spaces, no pay on the day and I assume no disabled parking. Initially only available to existing permit holders
  8. As the rest of the money from the go fund page is going to the children’s . Maybe we should have an owlstalk whip round and make a contribution just to steal their thunder.
  9. Things like this put everything into perspective. Football is important but family is everything. I’m sure the Wednesday family are all behind you and wishing you and your family the best. Here’s hoping for good news soon
  10. My dad, who sadly passed away in January made all ten. I just hope I can keep my promise that I made to him the day he died. Which was that I'd be back at Wembley this year in the play off final and this time we'd win.
  11. Goalkeeper 1952-53 died 16/8/2016 Can't see anything on here or an announcement from the club, but RIP to an ex owl
  12. Sorry used our IDs, but it's not too late to register one. Get someone with an ID to log on to friends and family and add him as new. It gives a client ID instantly. Obviously this ID will have no priority points but it will give him a shot when they go on general sale. I would do it as soon as possible to make sure SEE have it on file before general sale starts.
  13. Yes we have 4 physical hard paper tickets in our hands. Wednesday have several large boxes of tickets behind the counter at the ticket office. They are for people that are "registered" with the club as disabled, but because the club had mistakenly marked my dads id as disabled and they couldn't sort it out they let me buy from them.
  14. Just to let everyone know I got home from work today at 3.00pm and logged on to try to buy 4 tickets, all season ticket holders all with 500 points and got the "id not recognised " message for one of them. Tried refreshing, checked all the ids on the OS, tried calling Hillsborough on the number on the OS ( the one that says call on this number if you're having problems logging in ) couldn't get through, sent an email, got a generic response saying there was no guarantee they could get back to me before the final. Decided there was no option but to get in the car drive across town at rush hour to try to get to ticket office before 5.00 pm. Got to the ticket office and was told it was because the ID that wasn't recognised had been marked by Wednesday as disabled and therefore wasn't recognised by SEE because all disabled tickets are being sold through Hillsborough. Just to be clear the ticket holder is not registered disabled and we have never had any other issues or privileges from Hillsborough to suggest that they had the id marked as disabled. The girl at the ticket office couldn't explain it ,but said she had taken the marker off and suggested I go away and try to log on again and it should work. Here is the warning if this happens to any one else DON'T just walk away, we tried a couple of times to log in on different phones while we were still there and still couldn't get the ID recognised, the girl behind the counter then tried to log on on one of their computers and could not get the ID recognised. In the end she sorted us out by selling us the 4 tickets there and then from the tickets they have at Hillsborough, it meant we had less choice of where to sit but at least we had the tickets in our hands and saved booking fees and postage.
  15. yeah just realised how that reads wasn't meaning to argue I'd just looked it up and I meant sorry if I was bringing back unhappy memories or being negative
  16. Sorry, but 1989 / 90 going in to the last match Luton were in the third relegation spot on 40 points we were in the place above them on 43 points. Luton beat Derby 3- 2 and we lost to Forest at Hillsborough 3-0 sending us down on goal difference.
