  1. So that’s that then, the season is over and my Sheffield Wednesday odyssey of 29 years has come to an end. I simply can’t justify the cost of 2 season tickets anymore as year 7 of austerity bites watching live football has changed from being a way of life in to an expensive luxury that we can no longer justify. I certainly can’t get my head around the crazy pricing on the day and a membership price is excessive for what it is. The uncertainty of the Wednesdayite car park also plays a part and although I understand the majority of the posters on here live in Sheffield and can’t see the problem with it vanishing I can assure you when you’re traveling a distances the uncertainty of a parking spot becomes a problem. For me and the missus Mr Chansiri becoming chairman has been a double edged sword, yes he is striving for the success we all crave as fans but at what cost? I’m not sure he understands the local or even the wider economy and appears to think everyone has cash coming out of their ears. Sheffield Wednesday are one of the most expensive teams to watch outside of the Premiership, however I am not stupid enough to think the club is a charity and therefore as a business if you are paying your employees obscene wages you have to recoup the cost one way or another. That said it isn’t effecting the crowds and nothing would make me happier than Wednesday one day going from strength to strength in the Premier League so I’d like to wish Mr Chansiri all the best for his stewardship of the club. I am not going from an active fan to an armchair one, I would feel like a hypocrite, I’d rather give it up until hopefully one day I can return to actively support the club I love. Me and the missus will really miss our blue plastic seats but we hope the new residents of them have an absolute blast as the club continues to move forwards. We will miss being in Hillsborough and being a part of something so special. Anyway Owl Stalkers thanks for all the highs, lows, laughs, frustrations, positive and negative reactions, see you around and good wishes to each and every one of you for the future.
  2. If we were to get promoted and a good season was finishing 10th then there aren't going to be any exciting ends to the season like we're used to. All that money will just go on wages and sadly Wednesday just aren't the brand name we wished they were to become a worldwide club on the scale of some clubs from home and abroad you could mention. Yes i absolutely want to see Wednesday in the premier league but i want to see them fighting for a top 6 place (eventually) not a lifetime of mid table plodding where the main event is the odd time you beat a big boy.
  3. You have to say on the highlights it looks an absolute nothing challenge, it looks no where near as bad as it did looking at it from the side.
  4. Harsh? From the Kop it looked like he was auditioning for a part in an Enter the Dragon remake!
  5. I think a polite and gentle applause from everyone involved is the way forward.
  6. The bib i bought my daughter when she was born (she is nearly 26 now)
  7. It is also an excellent way to keep up with a match if you are out and about etc. You are allowed to follow official accounts and ignore the nobs.
  8. Just setting off for the 93 FA Cup Final replay.
  9. You see this is a dilemma because last Friday at the Cardiff game a bloke with a print at home ticket said to 2 people i think one of you is sat in my seat, to which the bloke of the pairing smartly answered no we are not!, we have season tickets. At which point he promptly pulled out the season ticket only to prove he was indeed sat in the wrong seat If you are going to borrow a season ticket at least get it right.
  10. Lets make the Fulham game a crowd in stripes day and then all move on to pastures new and all blue.
  11. That analogy is crap, if i bought a house it wouldn't have a public history and identity shared by many thousands of people who have pumped vast amounts of money in to it and who rightly or wrongly feel like they have a say in what i do with it.
  12. Bargain if you are a millionaire because you was born in to a very rich family.
  13. As a Leeds fan said to me, well that's your identity gone mate. I asked him to explain just to be sure he wasn't just trying to wind me up and he said no not at all, you are Sheffield Wednesday, you are blue and white stripes. I really liked this seasons shirt but as a one off thinking we were going back to stripes. I'll reserve judgement until i see the new shirt though, it might be brill for all i know, some of the fan mock ups look great. My heart is missing them stripes though.
