    Went to the game - thought they did o k for first half hour but the penalty not given threw their concentration and then the award at the other end was a blow that knocked their confidence . That on top of some poor general officiating , I think , made them feel they were never going to get anything out of the game . Not at all surprising given the hundreds of millions spent by Chelsea .Dont think we disgraced ourselves at all .
  2. Very helpful Torres .
  3. Manc Owl , I agree the system needs a tweak . I wondered whether the points could be awarded according to miles to travel , e g ,Brentford , or difficult times /circumstances , eg Luton . They would merit 10 pts , Blackburn say 5 , Rotherham , Piggies say 2 , or some sort of system that recognises the effort put in to get to games . I'm not moaning by the way as I have my ticket for Chelsea . Just think more thought could be put in to the system generally .
  4. I can assure you I do , from piggies , Leeds scum , Tykes , mini pigs , Man U , Man city , even Everton , all of whom I play football with , in Sheffield , every week , and boy did I cop it in N Z for being a 'Pommie poopydoo '. They called me Jack Charlton when I was playing and some thought I was a cockney - the worst insult ever .But , wouldn't have missed it for the world. Lets call it a draw now ! WAWAW
  5. Casbah said 'if you dont get this you probably live outside sheffield '. Why would I not 'get this ' whether I live outside Sheffield or not . Seems to me though the time to strike back is when we can truly say 'mind the gap ' , not when we are 15 points behind and 13 places behind them. 10 pages for a thread about Chelsea tickets , truly Massive response !

    The ignorance of youth . Good job your'e a Wednesdayite Farrell or I just might put my specs on , adjust the continence pads , get out the walking frame and give you a good kicking with my old leather boots . P S - we're not all senile and past it !
  8. Got that Costello . Thought it might help so that we dont run into as many pages as those moaning about Big Dave or Fox .
  9. You do that Costello - there's little of interest . Just to let those who remain curious , born and bred in Shiregreen , tramped around the world twice , so the geography isn't too bad . Played semi -pro footy in N Z for nearly 6 years including against Vic Mobleys team , our Tlcker Taylor , Trevor Brooking ,Mick Channon , .Frank Mcavennie and others , Played footy in Sheffield sunday leagues till I was 50 , season ticket holder since coming back from N Z in 1984 ,seen Wedy play on 75 of the current league grounds and several who are now non-league and in Portugal . Is that sufficient for now or is more required . As I said previously , I'm not bothered about the piggies , I'm bothered about Wednesday and I'm not bothered about how many piggies went to Swansea [ yes I did go to Swansea just before Xmas ] . What has that got to do with Chelsea ticket sales - see you all there ! WAWAW
  10. Didnt say I didnt live outside Sheffield - asked why you would assume I did - and what has all this got to do with the game against Chelsea?
  11. thanks casba been watching wedy since 1956 and was at luton on tuesday , why would you assume i live outside sheffield and yes some of my best mates are piggies , but i dont bother too much about them - well not since the days of derek pace [ ask your dad ] .
  12. Who gives a fig about what the piggies are doing . This is about what we are about to achieve . We did for the Arse , now for Chelsea .WAWAW

    He made one mistake last night , and yes it could have proved costly , but how many times did Reach pass to the opposition fron 2 yards or Bannan ping the ball 10 yards beyond a teamate attempting a worldy , or Hector misjudge a tackle . We won for heavens sake . Lay off them for once !
