  1. Exactly this ^^^ I walked to the ground from the station and was immediately pointed at the 3 turnstiles nearest town, without anyone asking to see my ticket. After standing around in the queue getting frustrated and realising I was going to miss the kick-off because it was 20 deep and hardly moving I checked my ticket.....and realised there was another entrance for Wednesday fans. I then showed a steward my ticket who let me walk up the road and got in the ground without any queuing at all. Once in the ground I told all the stewards at the turnstiles i’d just used to get a message outside because there was still hundreds of seriously p1553d off people 40 yards down the road trying to get in. This proved impossible. I then went to the other turnstiles, told at least 5 or 6 stewards what was happening and they were unable / unwilling to help me. I asked to speak to the police outside and wasn’t allowed. I’ll admit I was getting a bit “shouty” at this stage, but I’d driven to the game and not been drinking, so can’t be accused of being drunk. The majority of the stewards were clearly incompetent and had not been given much (if any) training in handling such a large crowd. On the positive side, post-match was far better handled than last season with the 8 foot barriers on John Street.
  2. There’s a temporary Royal British Legion shop at Meadowhall selling the badges. https://www.meadowhall.co.uk/news-events/meadowhall-poppy-appeal-store#Cp5ud5bIdRMYU5gZ.97 The joining of the poppy with a football teams logo on a badge will be a marketing method by the Legion to try to raise more money for the cause, and at a typically higher unit selling price than the plastic one. Seems like a good idea to me!
  3. Rushden & Diamonds away in 2004 always sticks in my mind We needed 2 penalties from the original Dave to give us a 2-1 win. It was a stark reminder of how far we had fallen and how quickly. https://www.11v11.com/matches/rushden-and-diamonds-v-sheffield-wednesday-21-february-2004-18705/
  4. I wrote to DC about this in the “ask the chairman” thing a couple of months ago. I made a couple of suggestions mainly based on what I’d seen at the Edgbaston test match and how they have machines pulling 12 pints at a time or bar staff pulling halves in advance and then topping them up.........heard nowt back’nn Its lost revenue, causes a lot of supporter dissatisfaction and quite easy to fix.
  5. Got mine, 36th consecutive season. 1st one was 83/84 promotion year when I was just 6 years old. I sometimes wonder what else I could have done with all the time I’ve spent watching Wednesday over the years.
  6. I think it depends who you speak with. My mate spoke to a lad and got told there weren’t any.......and then spoke to a lady and got a ticket!
  7. Speaking to the ticket office, it sounds like there’s been some Sunderland tickets returned by people deciding not to go. I emailed the ticket office yesterday and got a call from them this morning and sorted out a couple of tickets.
  8. I remember this, I think the Luton player was sparked out for a while. I’m glad someone else remembers it because none of my mates do. I’d convinced myself over the years that I’d imagined it.
  9. I think we signed Sibon and De Bilde on the same day and in typical Wednesday fashion a couple of days before the season started so they didn’t get much of a pre-season. His 1st season was poor but after that I though he was our best player......although it could be argued he was earning £20,000 a week and milked his contract to the end when we massively couldn’t afford it after relegation. I remember there were 3 or 4 lads who sat at the front of the north stand in orange boilers suits and what looked like orange hard hats in tribute to him. I also remember Birmingham away when at HT Gerald sets off walking very very slowly off the pitch but towards the wrong corner of the ground for the tunnel. Wednesday fans were shouting and pointing but he was that laid back it took him ages to realise and then shuffle on in the right direction. I think this was the same game Di Piedi scored the winner in the 90th minute after we’d been massively outplayed and then celebrated by hanging his shirt on the corner flag and waving it above his head!!!!
  10. I’ve got a spare adult ticket for today. I’m going to be in Frankie n Benny’s at Pride Park from about 1.
  11. When using a VPN the delay is a bit of a problem if you've got the sky sports score centre app set to alert you during a game. App: "90+2 Sam Hutchinson sent off for 2nd bookable offence" Then 30 seconds later as you watch on your iPad, Sam chops their player in half and gets sent off.
  12. I watched the Brighton game in January in the US using Sky Go and Tunnel Bear.
  13. Thanks Saxondale, that worked! Now I just need to get myself ready for the 1pm availability window.
  14. I'm trying to book tickets for the away leg. Ive logged in, I know one of my "friends & family" has enough points but I can't see an option to book on his behalf all I get is a greyed out screen. Any ideas, how I book a ticket for him please?
