  1. But wouldn't that deny access over the bridge to our fans? Also isn't the bridge the route to the main reception and office areas? And I'm sure the werther's brigade would really enjoy the bottles of pi$$ raining down on them.
  2. WHAT ! 'Course they do! Haven't you ever tried chutney on your crisp sandwiches? Maybe not beetroot and orange tho'
  3. Aren't SYP and Sheffield council already doing their best to stop people getting to the ground irrespective of road or weather conditions. FFS.
  4. A quote from this article :- "Such parking has prompted complaints, particularly from cyclists, for a long time. From cyclists FFS. Souldn't these tw@s be on the road not the pavement.
  5. I don't think there is anything mysterious about Andy Rhodes departure from the club. Wasn't he appointed as assistant manager at Oldham Athletic, one of his former clubs in June last year? Perhaps a little more mysterious why he was sacked by Oldham after only 4 months.
  6. If they were priced at £40 they'd be all gone in 65 minutes
  7. So the SYP say they cannot hold back the away supporters for ten minutes unless they 'agree' to it. Just watched the Swansea v Cardiff game, towards the end the commentator said that the Cardiff supporters couldn't leave as they were to be kept in until the police supervised their return to Cardiff. Different laws in Wales, then?
  8. Sorry Snooty but, IMO, having a MOM thread today is stupid. How the hell does anyone pick a MOM after a team performance like that. So many contenders, Bannan, Iorfa, Hutch, Fletcher, Nuihu, Fox, Westwood (have I left anyone out) and the rest were all 8's FFS, MOM? ALL OF 'EM !!
  9. SWFC 'set up' by the police again. Who can say that the SYP and SYC don't have an agenda after this latest ploy.
  10. Get there for 3pm and the only brawling you'll see will be the Leeds scrum fighting at the bus stop on Penistone Road.
  11. Be sure to wear your baggy shorts.
  12. Thanks @hirstyboywonder . I've bookmarked this post so will be able to access whenever needed. Us IT novices need all the help we can get.
  13. Thanks @DeeJayOne. But I'm afraid I'll have to rely on OT. Don't do Facebook, Twitter etc. I'm afraid. Google, Text messaging, on line shopping, booking holidays and, of course Owlstalk, are just about the limit of my IT capabilities.
  14. According to "The Star" a letter was handed out to to some Owls fans prior to the Stoke game telling them that parking was available at Rivelin and Marlcliffe Schools at a charge of £5. The "Star" goes on to say that this is a fake letter and not true. A picture of the letter does, at first sight, appear to be on an official SWFC letter head, but the fact that the old "minimalist" Owls badge alongside the current badge intimates that it is not, in fact, genuine. Why would anyone go to such trouble to produce such misinformation is beyond me. Some really sad B@stards about aren't there.
  15. Thanks DeeJayOne. Even as a ST holder I was thinking of giving this one a miss and watching on TV, but will now be there Would it be possible for Owlstalk to post on here whenever they plan to open the car park. Thanks again.
  16. This is just not true. The road has been re-opened within about 20/30 minutes of the final whistle and we have found it easier to exit the car park than before the present restrictions
  17. This is the point, the old Wednesdayite car park (opposite the kop) Has been open for every game this season until last Tuesday, we have used it for each game and surprisingly the hold up due to the temporary closure of Penistone Road has only added 5 or 10 minutes to our journey home to Crookes. NB. Don't try Parking at Rivelin or Marlcliffe School. This letter is a hoax. See article in tonight's "Star"
  18. Yes the thread in the Wednesdayite forum is about the new car park at the college which unfortunately is too far for me to walk (I'm an old git with some mobility problems). My enquiry is about the Old Wednesdayite carpark which has still been in use prior to last Tuesday.
  19. Was disappointed to find the old Wednesdayite car park closed last Tuesday evening. Not all that surprised as patronage has been falling match on match since the closure of Penistone Road for a short time after games. The main problem for me was there was no warning that the car park was to be closed leading to last minute panic trying to find alternative parking. Drove round the block again and was unfortunately the first one too late at the car park on Herries Road, arriving just as the attendant announced "Sorry full-up" Took a chance and parked opposite the steel stockholders further down Herries Rd - £35 now on it's way to the B@stards at SYC . Not complaining too much as I knew I was taking a risk. Anyway, now you've read my tail of woe :- Does anyone on here know if the Wednesdayite carpark is now permanently closed or was Tuesday evening a one off?
  20. Perhaps he is one of the low life who have been trashing cars on Herries Road for the past few seasons. If so maybe he got a bit of what he deserved
  21. Anyone know if the Tap is open after the Leeds game on Saturday?
  22. Errr! Won't that be his second suspension?
  23. Errrr ! Won't that be his second suspension?
  24. Sorry vulva, as usual I'm not paying attention and didn't read any further than "couldn't walk down Leppings Lane", and "line of stewards" Completely ignored the rest of your post. Attention span of a goldfish I'm afraid.
