    Place game when we went down to leauge one first time got so annoyed at that game 


    That one didn't bother me so much, I thought we deserved relegation after an awful season and Palace were in a false position due to a points deduction.

    Yeah, that was the day you knew he was completely and utterly done. 


    We never got to grips fully with the occasions, whilst they were so up for it. 


    In saying that, I thought there was only one winner when Joao makes it 2-2...but then Dumb and Dumber (Lees and Joost) put an end to that. 


    Yeah we had a 15min spell where we were battering them, some of their fans told me after they thought they'd blown it at that stage, Van Aken WTF:

    The 4-2 against them w@nkers is the one really. 


    Just a flipping awful day all round that. The fact we got back into it (all the momentum on our side) and then threw it away in a matter of 30 or so seconds was utterly shameful. 


    I was a fan of Carlos but can never forgive him for this one, the pigs will be dining out on it for years.

    There was an away game vs QPR a couple of seasons ago - Lukahay was manager - he left out Tom Lees and the team played like a school team. none of them had a clue what actual formation was being played - I had never seen such an unprofessional outing of Wednesday and it was clear that the manager had no clue whatsoever what his game plan was.


    I was at this game, we made QPR look like prime Barcelona, atrocious.

  5. Probably too many to mention but off the top of my head:


    Owls 0 Everton 5 - After numerous stalemates a total capitulation, I left just after half time


    Owls 0 Forest 3 - Relegation confirmed after a Forest demolition job, pigs going up same day truly cemented an awful weekend


    Owls 1 Pigs 3 - Really thought we'd avenge the 2-0 at their place, this was worse


    FA Cup Final Replay - Woods!!!!!!!!!


    Hull Play Off Final - never turned up after so much promise


    2-4 - No comment


    I'm sure theres more.

  6. He looked a little shaky at the start of the season and was a bit in and out of the side, the latter half he was excellent (how good was the moment he got his first goal) really pleased we've secured him again.

  7. I don't think it will have too much of an effect, people who want to stream the games will currently do so by the improper channels, I can't attend every game (particularly mid week ones) so will use streaming to fill in the gaps (it used to be Radio Sheffields job), a match being streamed wouldn't take precedence over attending the game, its nowhere near the same experience.

    Think also the onus would be on clubs to improve the match day experience. Make it more than about just the game. Offer good quality food, drink and service at decent prices. Have entertainment on, make people want to get to the ground early and meet up with mates and spend money instead of piling it all into the tills at the Rawson. It would require a big logistical and cultural change to the normal match day routine but I’m sure it could be done.


    I don't think you'll ever change this if I'm being honest.

    Thinking back to that '91 team and thinking of which player from that XI doesn't get enough recognition, I'd say Peter Shirtliff.


    Was young when he played for us so don't remember him all that well, but very solid, underrated centre back. Unless someone a bit older wants to disagree?


    No Shirts was a great player, nice bloke too.


    Marc Degryse and Paul Williams.

    No, not our new star striker. The composer who wrote this piece of music we used to play before games. Announced today he has died aged 79.



    Great piece of music which used to signal the start of the game for me. 


    I'm guessing he didn't make the announcement 😬

  11. Football wasn't a big thing in our family, there were a lot of Leeds fans at junior school but I didn't really take that much interest until the '78 World Cup, I followed the sport more after that, the Star gave away a team poster to celebrate the 1980 promotion campaign and I was hooked from there, 42 years of suffering later........................

    Although Moore will be kept on next season, Manning is potentially the next up and coming “Graham potter” manager who is highly rated so would be a good appointment by someone. Probably Blackburn 


    We'll end up with the next Harry Potter.

    I wish I had the ability to see seasons in isolation......how anyone can praise the owner for this season like the previous ones never happened is beyond me. Yes, he's done a markedly better job last year but he is nowhere near undoing the damage suffered at his hands, fact. 


    He hasn't no, far from it but he has shown signs that he's learning at last, it will take a lot to undo the damage but I've enjoyed the second half of this season more than any for a few years, long way to go but a step in the right direction.
