  1. Take him off, drop Reach back and put Matias or Joao on
  2. I get it 1st hand, and i can also tell you people also purchase balls and tickets to have them signed, then auction them as they know they will fetch more money.
  3. Can tell you now that SUFC would only send 1 of those items.

    Win Nothing with Kids

    The same was once said to Sir Alex Ferguson when he promoted the class of 92. Now im not saying we are or ever will be the same but he and his team made a mockery of that saying and proved that age is no barrier with the right coaching.
  6. Kieran Lee subbed after 16 minutes however reported it was planned.

    Remember this?

    was it against Luton if memory serves me right?
  8. I'm from a family of Sheffield United supporters and sadly my mum and dad separated when I was 6. Mum struggled at the time because she was left with myself (6) and my sister who had just turned 1 at the time. We didn't have much money & things were tough for us but mainly mum, its only as you got older you realise the sacrifices she made. She could not afford to take us out much or to participate in any activities at the time so I only got took out really when family or friends offered to take us. One of those occasions was when my uncle (mums brother) offered to take me to Hillsborough to watch Wednesday. It was a night game against Shrewsbury Town (79/80), we stood on the Crows nest and it finished 0-0. The game was absolutely dire and to cap it off it chucked it down all night but I was hooked, the lights, the atmosphere, the blue and white stripes even the rain. It was a memory that stuck with me from that day and I immediately fell in love with Wednesday. From that day i just wanted to watch Wednesday as much as i could and hoped that it would not be long till i got to go again. I was fortunate that after a few years mum met a new bloke who became and still is my step-dad and he was an owl, as part of the bonding sessions he decided that man and boy had to go to watch Wednesday to get to know each other better, i was never not going to get on with him was I LOL. For me Wednesday is more than a hobby or entertainment. Its a defining moment in my childhood & my upbringing, watching Wednesday made me happy and to this day still does. Yes i want them to be successful but for me its about spending time doing something I love, i introduced my daughter to Wednesday and through her eyes I could and still can see that she gets the same buzz as i used to all those years ago. I love meeting up with mates in the pub beforehand and afterwards. For me Wednesday is moe than just a football club.

    New Food Choices at the ground...

    I have just written to DC and requested further offerings like Smoked Salmon in filo pastry. I notice a few are drinking wine now too on the concourse instead of Amstel.
