  1. My lad had an U9's Cup Final abandoned on that pitch ... for fighting
  2. Are they outside with the trolleys or inside with the baskets?
  3. George Hirst

    He won't have been sat twiddling his thumbs all season. He's probably got an agreement already in place with his next club. The wait will soon be over and we'll find out where he's going...then we can all move on.
  4. Your best memory under Carlos

    As mentioned on here before I live in Stockport and have married in to a Man United family. When he started at primary school my son George supported both Wednesday and Man United, but by taking him to Wednesday matches (and I think him also wanting to be different to the majority of United and City supporters at school) he chose to support Wednesday and ditch the Mancs. However, as he has grown older and become more aware of football, not least through playing at a half decent level himself for the past 6 years, there was always a risk that he'd see 'the error of his ways' and reverse his decision. The 2012 promotion season helped reaffirm his decision as he had decent results to go in to school and crow about to all his Manc mates. Going to City twice to see us dumped out of both cups didn't help too much and he got a fair bit of stick after the 7-0 but he stuck with it. BUT...our time under Carlos, especially the first season, has really confirmed his allegiance and he's now without doubt 'Wednesday til I die' . We beat Arsenal 3-0, it seemed like we scored the goal of the day EVERY Saturday evening on Sky Sports, he was in awe of the atmosphere the Brighton at home play off leg, he was devasted at Wembley ...but we got to Wembley to see the Blue and White Wizards play and he was convinced we were going to win that game down to the performance of our fans alone. He now has football heroes like Westwood, Bannan, Lee, Forestieri and Hooper, he even understands why Nuhiu has cult status now. For all of the above I'll always be grateful to Carlos. He's a thoroughly decent bloke and I wish him all the best wherever he goes next ...and I will always give him a warm welcome if he ever pays a visit back to Hillsborough. Merry Christmas and WAWAW.

  6. Good stuff ... I lose track of all the Reddish teams. North End play in Blue and Yellow and have their own home facility? If so, we played them there in a pre-season friendly before last season, nice little set up with a decent 4G astro pitch! Respect league at Burnage Rugby club or down in Wythenshawe? The U12's are at Wright Robbie every week this season ... worst pitches the EMJFL use by a mile, terrible surface, more like the top of an old pan scrub.
  7. Who does your son play for mate? My lad has been playing in the East Manchester JFL since starting in the U8's when his team were U7's. Now in the U12's with Hazel Grove.
  8. Opportunity for George Hirst

    Have heard from a reliable source that he'll talk to interested parties in January and get his move away at the end of this season lined up nice and early. Hopefully things will change between now and then, although at present I get the impression the situation is irretrievable and neither party is prepared to alter their stance to make that change happen.
  9. Yeah just checked, its 13:15. Panicked a bit then as I'm on the first train out of London to Stockport to pick up son to get over for it. Doubt we'd be over in time for a midday ko.
  10. In that case I hope he can edam ...edam clear at our end and edam in at their end.
  11. Where's Westwood ?

    He was at Edgeley Park on Friday night giving out awards at my sons end of season presentation night. We weren't there though. He's been the subject of a big money summer transfer so in his own mind has severed all ties with the club...throw in a fixture clash with his last ever school disco at primary school and the presentation night came a sorry second best.
  12. Wolfmanjack

    Saddened to hear this news. I didn't know him, but it's odd how you feel you 'know' someone just from their online persona, username and avatar. Will miss him around here. Rest in Peace Wolfmanjack.
  13. The day I finally got both of my kids to Hillsborough together, Cardiff at home last April. Can't keep him away but she's proving a tougher nut to crack...check out her specially selected bling though.
