  1. A couple of interesting events ! 1894 Wednesday reached the FA Cup Semi Final after beating the favourites Aston Villa,who had won the cup the previous year. A crowd in excess of 20,000 roared the Wednesday a brilliant 3-2 victory which the local paper reported was after extra time ? Goals Woolhouse Spikesley & OG. Wonderful cartoons from the Sheffield Telegraph Is that crutch man down the front Interesting snippet about the height & weight of the likely team - some stocky lads in there and none over 6 ft! 1951 1951 Struggling #SWFC gave league debuts to two 17 year olds - Alan Finney & the original Golden Boy Albert Quixall. In front of 40,943 Wednesday drew 2-2 with Chelsea. Quixall has the better of the debuts - some of the history books record the Wednesday goals were scored by Quixall and Woodhouse but the Green Un reports they 2 own goals. Alas youth couldn't help as Wednesday were ultimately relegated that season as the Yo-Yo years had arrived 2015 Seems like a different world and club but Big Dave is soldiering on ! 3 years ago on this day we went to the New Den and actually beat Millwall 3-1 in front of 8,568. Goals McGugan, Nuhiu & May.
  2. On This Day

    He was after Pele's shirts wasn't he ? :-)
  3. On This Day

    In 1972 Pele & Santos were at Hillsborough :-) In 1980 We beat Toytown 5-0 with an Andy Mac Hat Trick (and other from TC & jeff King) and in 1989 we signed a Legend for £750K
  4. The two famous clubs Wednesday & Rangers met at the Cricket Ground - Rangers winning 2-1.
  5. Typical that Arsenal had a lower attendance but higher gate receipts!
  6. A few press cuttings from the FA Cup match with Man City at Hillsborough on this day in 1934. Nowt changes

    Phots from the home leg programme :
  8. Kaiserslautern

    It was a fantatstic atmosphere and as I remember there was some restriction on the numbers that were allowed on the Kop? Loudest and longest running chant of the night was "The Wednesday hate f*&c*ing Germans" - early Brexiteers were we.
  9. On this Day in 1935

    Billy Walker's novel way of preparing for the FA Cup match #OnThis Day in 1935 at the Nest between @NorwichCityFC & #SWFC. The practice match took place on the 12th of February 1935.
  10. On This Day in 1935 a goal by Ellis Rimmer gave #SWFC a 5th Round FA Cup victory at the Nest - a former ground of @NorwichCityFC #WAWAW

  13. On this Day 65 years ago :-(

    I've seen some old film of Derek travelling to Hillsborough to the match on the tram carrying his boots - can't seem to find it now .
