  1. My Mum & Dad, as school children, both went to that visit by the Queen to Hillborough in 1954 - boys were given a penknife which was rubbish my Dad said and broke straightaway - I don't know if there any of those in existance.
  2. I didn't mean that !! 🙂 I meant as he said - produced to commererate the 1935 cup win. You were indeed spot on with very nice. .
  3. As Nev says ! A lovely thing!
  4. Always wondered what had happened to Robert Walker after designing one of the most iconic football images ... and sorry Bob it doen't bring us a lot of luck for a few years! Launched 1st match of 1973 season vs Blackpool #WAWAW
  5. Twenty years of Hurt - On this day in 2000 - the Wednesday Way, 3-1 up at Arsenal with goals from Sibon, De Bilde & Quinn only to draw 3-3 and confirm relegation from the premier league. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HnzW0ZR8jeU

  8. Poor match but a fantastic end to a wonderful season - kickstarted by THAT match on 26th Deccember 1979. One of the very best of days ! Who wasn't on the pitch ? !!

  10. Just been reading the Star article - great work as ever !
  11. Is it really ten years since we lost the Mick P? Remembering the Wednesday #Legend Mick Prendergast who sadly passed away #OnThisDay ten years ago, aged just 59. Prendo made his debut 51 years ago in April 1969 and scored 59 goals in 206 appearances for #SWFC. Always gave 100% and had the heart of a Lion! The date of his death was also, by a quirk of fate, the anniversary of that memorable Southend game in 1976 and one of the most important night's in Wednesday's history. Goals by Eric Potts and Prendo earned #SWFC a 2-1 victory, and secured 3rd Division survival, in front of (at least) 25,802 jubilant Wednesday fans.
  12. Hail the boys of 1979/80 - #Onthisday 40 years ago, despite losing 0-1 away at Exeter - the wonderful Wednesday club of Sheffield were promoted from Division 3. What a time ! #NeverbeMastered
  13. #Onthisday in 1966 #swfc beat Chelsea 2-0 in the FACup semi final in the mud at Villa Park Att. 61,321. Goals by McCalliog & Pugh. Heroics by Vic Mobley You Tube : https://youtube.com/watch?v=FDCIo0
