  1. My son is going to be a mascot at the game v Blackburn. He asked for it as a Christmas present. Couldn’t afford the vip package at £600 but still had to pay £240 for the standard mascot. Despite paying all that money found out that it doesn’t include match ticket . They really should look at their pricing and try incentives to attract the young ones to matches as they are the future of our club
  2. Westwood - 7 Palmer - 8 Hector - 7 Thorniley - 7 Fox - 6 Hutchinson - 7 Bannan - 6 Reach - 6 Boyd - 5 Forestieri - 5 subs aarons 7 joao 6 nuhiu 5
  3. There was a moment in the first half when lees was stood just inside the area and a Norwich player was stood literally 5 yards behind him on the penalty spot completely unmarked and lees had no idea he was there . It just summed up lees and the defences performance this season
  4. 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
  5. 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 .
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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!!
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. we've got stevie howard his mobility scooter is jet powered nah nah nah nah ooh nah nah nah nah shhhhhhhhhhhhhh
  15. cheers for that, its my 40th birthday that day and was hoping we would get one of the 'bigger' clubs but when was the last time we drew a bigger club
