    I’m willing to take my shoes off in the car park if it helps.
  2. Things were really bad in the early/mid seventies, but even then there seemed an optimism that things would work out. I hope we can get through the apathy and negativity surrounding the club now. I have followed this club for nearly 50 years and have never felt so disenfranchised as I do now. As a POTG supporter I have the choice not to attend. That choice gets easier week by week.
  3. His memory seems to have gone. Woods and Waddle in 91 ? Miners strike in 1997 ?
  4. I’ll be there mate. Last day anyway. Can’t get much more depressed
  5. Quite a few Nivas and Cossacks about. Also see the odd Russian ZIL and volgas
  6. Been working out in Azerbaijan. Every other car is an old Lada. Not much to look at, zero performance and very uncomfortable. But so reliable and simple to repair. Heavy on fuel , but in Azerbaijan diesel is 28p a litre.
  7. That must have been a pig to change.
  8. Yep me too. Flying Lufthansa to Baku , Azerbaijan. Paid a tenner, wish I'd saved mi brass now☹️☹️
  9. Half Time Score - 0 - 0 Full Time Score - 2 - 0 Goalscorers - Fletcher, Reach Sendings Off - 0 Man Of The Match - Bannan 1st derby in years and I'm flying out to Azerbaijan for work. Should be somewhere over Russia when it kicks off FFS. Sure this wouldn't have been allowed to have happened if Mammadov had bought us.

    Straight red. Reckless, dangerous and not in control. Intentional or not, it's a poor knee high challenge.
  11. Me. After working for 40 years I'm taking a gap year.

    There's a topic on S2 4SU comparing the Wednesday table to the Blunts table at the Star awards. Stating that the"Wendies table is all neat and tidy with coffees and bottled water. The Blades table looks great strewn with empty bottles of peroni. 1.... we have a rather important game this weekend. I'd call that professionism. 2.....bottles of peroni ? I'd rather drink tramps p1ss. Where Sheffield steel meets Italian style. The classless set of morons giving Sheffield a bad name since 1889.

    So, on to Cardiff.

    Other than the Warnock effect I can't see a problem. Hooper back at it and just look back to the Cardiff game last season. Was one of the best performances by a Wednesday player since the golden days of Waddle. Hooper to bag a brace , Rhodes to score coming on from the bench to ease the nerves. 3 - 0 never in doubt. Bring it on.

    To all those who slated the team selection. Please now keep your opinions to yourselves. For once in a long time , we have a manager who knows how pick a team to get a result. We were in control of the game from start to finish. Fletcher and Hooper looked a good combination until Hooper ran out of steam. The substitutions were made at the right times and helped with the game management. Now is the time to get off the managers back and go with his philosophy. We are in a better place than last season with a better squad. Let's get behind them and let's see where it can take us. WAWAW
