    Todays attendance at #SWFC

    They They enjoyed the second half a lot more . The youngest one loves the build up and the hi ho silver lining opening and even re creates it on the back garden. He’s having his birthday party at Swfc again this year but even the cost of that is ridiculous in all honesty

    Todays attendance at #SWFC

    Went today with my two boys who are 13 and 7 years old. Cost me £71.00!!! thats without parking, programme and food. £71 for a championship game v hull city unfortunately my family don’t own a multi millionaire business and I also have a mortgage and have to put food on the table just like the vast numbers of fellow Wednesday supporters do. So I fully understand why the numbers are dropping and why at those prices the supporters will be more selective at the matches they can afford to attend .

    Player Ratings (non OPTA)

    Dawson. 6 Baker. 6 Pudil. 6 Hutchinson. 7 Lees. 7 Fox. 2 Bannan. 7 Reach. 7 Pelupessy. 4 Foresteri. 8 Fletcher. 6 Thorniley. 7 Matias. 6 jos. 2.. Our play is still pedestrian with no urgency or high tempo. The fact that despite it being our first home game of the season , the players looked flat in the first half when they should have been full of energy says it all. Improved in the second half admittedly but hull looked a poor team and if we are struggling to beat them then it’s going to be a long season.
  4. Usually buy membership for myself and my 2 sons. Paid £100 last season which I thought was expensive but the prices announced today are beyond belief. The club is seriously in danger of pricing many fans out of supporting Wednesday what with the match ticket prices too. I’ve supported Wednesday since 1982 and seen many highs and lows but the way us supporters are being treated at the moment by being charged champions league prices for mid table championship football makes me wonder where it’s all going to end.
  5. How good would it be to see the new kit being unveiled on Sunday, and the team playing in blue and white stripes in our final league game of the season v Norwich . A positive performance and result to get everyone up for next season, where hopefully without the chronic injury crisis we’ve had this season , we push on aiming for those top two positions . After the farce of this season let’s hope the club have learnt from the mistakes and sorting the kit out and a return to the famous blue and white stripes would be the first step in the right direction.
  6. I really hope I’m wrong but I’ve a horrible feeling it’s going to be league 1. This week is massive and if we don’t pick up any points then we really are in the relegation dog fight. If and when Birmingham appoint monk then that will give a boost to them. ive tried to remain positive this season but the last few weeks have been abysmal and everything about the club from top to bottom looks clueless

    Tonight's matchday programme

    Those young lads are my junior football team I took down on a match day experience a couple of years ago . It was brilliant that they were involved in the remembrance tribute and were able to pay their respects

    Naming the stands

    After watching the unveiling of the kenny dalglish stand at Liverpool today, surely in our 150th anniversary year it would be good idea to name our stands after previous influential players from our past . We could even name parts of the stand after certain players, such as the back row of the kop could be named after colin west seeing as that’s where most of his shots finished!!
  9. First game for me was in 1984 v Brighton . A 2-1 win, with my then Wednesday hero, Gary bannister scoring 1 of the goals. All I could remember that night was the sound of the crowd and the chant "we love love you Wednesday " echoing in my ears. The following week came my first away trip, the short journey to Barnsley. Sat in the main stand with my uncle as Mel 'Zico' sterland hammered home his customary ferocious thunderbolt penalty to give us a 1-0 win and ultimately onto the return the top division. Season tickets in the north and south stands before progressing onto the back of the kop in my late teen years. The promotion season of 1990/1991 turning up to every game in anticipation of another victory in our push to return once again to the top division , watching a young David Hirst terrorise the opposition defenders. The night of the semi final second leg, against Chelsea , with Danny wilsons screamer into the top corner sealing a day out at Wembley, walking all the way back up herries road, with the rain pouring down , without a care in the world , singing "we're going to Wembley"...a day not to forget with the coach journey down, the sea of blue and white along Wembley way, being sat right behind johnny sheridans shot as it hit the back of the net, Pearson lifting the trophy and even the coach breaking down on the way back couldn't spoil the day... the season after, qualifying for Europe ... I could go on about the next 25 years but there are way too many ups and downs, many many more magical moments along with so many disappointing times but onto the present day and now it's with my 12 and 6 year old sons that I go to watch our team, our Wednesday and they have their own 'heroes' and that tingle of excitement on match days . The wide eyed look as they enter the ground and the passion in their voices as they belt out 'hi ho Sheffield Wednesday ' before the kick off.. every kick every goal means so much.. this is their team , this is their Wednesday and hopefully they will see us back with the big time very soon

    Next season kit

    Don't the clubs have to submit their official kit design to the fa by a certain date?? Wasn't this the reason why we couldn't remove Azerbaijan off the shirts a few years ago because the kit had already been submitted and before we found out mamadov didn't have the funds he claimed he had

    executive boxes

    probabally the wrong section, apologies for that but does anyone know how much it would cost to hire an executive box for fa cup game v mk dons or if there are any special packages commercially that wednesday are running on that day, ie meal and match tickets. Ive looked on official website but cant find anything

  15. been to old trafford today to watch olympic footy and was very impressed with the egyptian team and the number 8 who played for belarus, who was built like the preverbial brick wall. his name is sergei kornilenko and apparantly played for blackpool in 2010/2011. he gave the brazilian defenders a very torrid afternoon. as for the egyptians both wingers looked nippy and very comfortable and creative on the ball. wonder if anyone was watching them as future players for the MASSIVE
