  1. Sums the situation up this season when our fake crowd song repeated on a loop is a song about Steven Fletcher. It was probably playing as he knocked in Stoke’s winner against us. May as well play Hookey Street off Only Fools and Horses all game. Wait on, surely this should be our anthem when we come back in L1? C’est magnifique Chansiri! No income tax no VAT.....
  2. Beautiful cartoon of such a special man who touched our lives. Lovely depiction of the scenes after the Carlisle game in 1980. In no way a criticism of a wonderful cartoon, but I can’t help but seeing Howard Wilkinson holding the Inter City Fairs Cup In there....which seems a little ironic.
  3. 23 October 1976 Shrewsbury Town H 0-1 Our family had season tickets in the West Stand and this match was clearly the perfect introduction to watching Wednesday. It was a great place to start as a sort of baseline as to what success is. Anything above this is good, there isn’t really much below. Yet.
  4. When it becomes clear in November that we will finish in the bottom 6 in League 1.
  5. Indeed, I was there. Gorgeous day, never forget it. It gave us that iconic photo of TC wheeling away in front of the celebrating Wednesday masses. Breakfast In America by Supertramp was the theme tune to this day. I was 9 years old and this might have been only my second ever away game after Hull on Good Friday in May 79. Me, my older brother and sister, my Dad and his girlfriend Angela had 4 seats between 5 of us in the Barnsley main Stand. Think most of the game I was probably sat on someone’s else’s lap...The Wednesday end was to our left in the sunshine. Always remember the
  6. And there you absolutely have it. So beautifully put. Even now, during this time that actually feels like the death of it all, there will be future days with fans, belonging, excitement and pride to have stayed with it all. This is the biggest test of all time for Wednesday fans, if we can live through this, there will be other times to come, more historic and good times. Even after all this.
  7. I can’t believe it’s 30 years ago today since Chelsea. Thanks to those who made our dreams come true when we were young. We were kissed by magic. Thirty years on the candle is flickering in the wind, but it will never go out.
  8. Carl Shutt. Appeared in a puff of smoke October 1985. Disappeared in a puff of smoke October 1986. As remarkable as Warhursts story, but no one recorded it. Not a converted striker, already a striker. A golden run, a golden semi final goal. Right at the top of it all in 85-86. Would be worth £30m today just for that 12 months. And just as Wednesday is as Wednesday does, he vanished, only remembered by those there standing by the deep sink holes dug in the uncovered Kop on a spring night, mourning the defeat to Everton taking comfort in his goal spree. No legacy, no marking of his time, no sale
  9. Ok! Tell us exactly how it could be worse than it is now?! We’re going down to L1 anyway as it stands. It’s not an appointment to celebrate, no one is. Just people saying he’s probably going to keep us up. If he doesn’t he doesn’t but please explain how the football could be worse than this?! This is like 74-75. We simply don’t score. A team that doesn’t score. A team that can cave in 5-0 at home at any time, could have been against Brentford. No goals from open play in 515 minutes etc. This team is getting relegated as it stands.
  10. We all want good football! But we’re trying to stay out of Division 3. When the team is shored up and stops losing, starts winning some home games, you might find some good football starts to happen. Why are you so certain it will be terrible? You sounds like all those Stoke fans in 2017 phoning up 5 Live complaining about Stoke being mid table in the Prem and how boring it is. I said to my son on the way home from Ipswich, you watch, they’ll sack him and end up almost in L1. The thing needs rebuilding and that’s when the good football comes. I’m sick of turgid football just like you are! B
  11. Neil, why are you peddling that sort of stuff? If stuff like that is coming from the head of the club’s biggest forum then no wonder the whole things a shitshow right now which it is. Why are you whinging about ‘good’ football?! We haven’t seen any for four years anyway. If we end up in league one we’ll be cut off from the rest of football for the forseeable future. If it is Pulis, it’s our best chance of staying up. He may not be that popular but has he ever done anything to us?
  12. Can’t see why there’s so much vitriol and disgust about this. The current football makes your eyes bleed anyway, we’re unwatchable; this assertion that it’s going to be dire to watch isn’t based on a whole lot. By far the best chance of staying up must be with Pulis, it’s hard to imagine he won’t cut out the gaping incompetencies and enormous gaps people run into straight towards our shaky defence. His record suggests he’ll make us in to a competitive team. When we start winning home games nobody will be complaining about us looking dire. Because that’s what we have been, dire and heading for
  13. Love watching us on iFollow but it will always make me think of these times we’re going through. The worst thing though is when you’re watching Wednesday struggle but hoping somehow we will make something happen and then ping...... notification on phone from EFL iFollow app... Sheffield Wednesday 0 Luton Town 1 Some bloke 78 mins And we’re still fannying about huffing and puffing at the other end as the video stream catches up. Truly crushing!
  14. Thank you Snoots. Hope we compete and stay in the game. What is it about struggling at home? Maybe we can decide we’re playing as the away team. Tide must turn soon.
