  1. I have a member number issued to me earlier this week. Let me know if u need it and will pm with postcode
  2. Villa got 11k more than us for their first home game yest. Same level of support and with similar pre-season of FFP concerns, owner silence over finances and general fan apathy. Oh and Villa have a sensible and reasonable ticket pricing policy......
  3. Turner didn't think his time was up at all. In fact Francis was keeping CT and Pressman guessing in pre-season training and was saying to them it was one or the other, no suggestion of any new arrival at all. Then on eve of season signed Woods with no communication to either of his keepers which didn't go down well. Then CT told Orient in for him and accepted move as was a contract that would take him to pension age which in those days was important for players financial security - how times change!!
  4. Sat by the South stand netting. Steward didn't know why either!! Nice to hear they brief them on their area of the stadium. 400 seats = 8k @ an average of £20 a seat. What a waste. Give them away to kids sports groups - they won't try to attack the away fans unless we insist on them donning Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle costumes perhaps....
  5. As title.......one of the team that day reliably informed that he was totally p*ssed for our 5-1 away hammering to Liverpool in April 1989. Spirit bottle at the bottom of the dressing room drinks box was the culprit. Watch the 'lowlights' and you can tell he's totally battered https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFWgBa6G-3Q
  6. ...................more importantly Carlton is 50 the following day. Carlton Palmer at 50, doesn't look a day over when he scored his hattrick in 1991 v QPR, I was there to witness this unlikely act!
  7. Was in the megastore (yea right) on Saturday and people in front of me wanted a number and name printing on the a shirt they were buying. Response from the server was that they had no A's or E's! Might just be me but how many names do you need these letters for........another Wednesday created commercial disaster. Only one first teamer you can have..................... NUHIU - oh that's fine, that's the name I've always wanted on my shirt, who needs a's and e's, PROBABLY ALL PART OF WEDNESDAYS SHIRT PRINTING POLICY JUST LIKE LAND OF FIRE. Now I live 90 miles from Sheffield hence not a regular visitor to the shop, but every time I visit, there is some key item out of stock, I'm never ceased to be amazed at how we continually disappoint and are completely clueless in terms of business and maximising sales and therefore income and turnover. Other matters that shouldn't surprise me: No changing room at all, how many retailers can you think of whose stock is 90% clothing! don't let u try things on, even Mr Ashley lets u do that in his less than perfect mega discount sports stores. Poor stock levels of training wear, esp polos/tshirts Ridiculously priced misc stuff like key rings, I could go on.......
  8. Wonder what Milan's book collection behind him on the video exclusive/Fri afternoon office chat, contain....gotta be more interesting than his boring monotone nothingness of a vid.
  9. Shirtliff was a man mountain for the club but he was never twice the player......interesting how he apparently appears twice on this pic.
  10. Anyone spotted the 'stock due date' on sports direct website has moved from 15th Aug to 1st Sept.......says it all. Words fail me.
  11. Would have had Port Vale away if Cardiff lost to Reda FC
  12. Shop manager 'amazed' - why be amazed that a good kit backed up by a good on field product will equal big big sales at a club with big support? 21 yrs on the club are still 'amazed' by how quickly the kit shifts and we STILL can't sort supply issues. All it takes is some planning and coordination between the kit supplier and club. And still a totally BLANK page on the club site when u click on away kit, the damn season starts in 2 days - so embarrassing. Why do I think this sets the tone for the season.......
  13. Larry May was a class act who could play very well........nowhere! Then we also had Ian Cranson, Mark Proctor, Darren Wood, Tony Galvin, Mark Taylor (here's info on him as you really won't recall him, played 9 games in 1989/1990 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Taylor_(footballer_born_1966)
  14. John Cutts, property developer, was worth a significant sum, £320 million before things went south in 2011 business wise http://www.birminghampost.co.uk/business/19---john-cutts-320m-3964611 would never have the stupidity or time to want to invest!!!
  15. One of my fondest memories of being an Owl. Local match for me and my dad living in Solihull, an amazing atmosphere, small ground (too small as before new stand installed but the FA wouldn't have counted on such a big Sheffield related support) and literally all you could hear was sheffield chants, of course mainly from wednesdayites due to 3 players appearing. All 3 played well from memory, Hirst, unsurprisingly was in his element, scoring for fun. No idea why Pressman wasn't in goal as always more consistent than Martyn. Probably a consequence of it starting look like biased selection of Wednesday players. GOOD TIMES!!!!!!
