  1. well thanks for the best wishes from the sunshine 'Lanzarote Owl. But there wasn't much sunshine when we were there in November - It PSS'D it down. But Happy Christmas to owls everywhere. WAWAW.
  2. About Bart-Williams. I still have to smile when I remember reports that when Bartman first arrived at Hillsborough Viv Anderson demanded to see his passport. He said that anyone with a face that old couldn't possibly be only 17.
  3. Never thought I'd see a thread on here that made me feel glad I'm an old git. Season ticket holder since the late sixties so I've seen lots of great players at Hillsborough. Pele, Best, Quixall, John Charles, Ron Springett, Hirst, Sheriden, Waddle, Swan, Duncan Edwards. Oh FF's sake somebody send me to bed before I start crying!
  4. Saw a young man called Traore make cameo appearance for Barcelona last night. Eighteen years old,I think, could hold it up, could beat his man, Scored a blinder. Perhaps Barca would like to send him to us for rest of season. Realise I'm probably living in dream land but at least watching Barcelona win 8 - 1 was far better than watching the pigs on some second rate free stream.
  5. Lets look on the bright side of life. Not very often we can go to a match thinking that anything less than a 7 goal beating will be an improvement!!!
  6. Of course Westwood is (potentially) for sale, given that a realistic offer is received. IMO MM/Aldridge have played this piece of business very well. Sign Westwood on a free. Put him in shop window for six months. Sell at a very healthy profit! Why else would we have kept Kirkland on high wages as our number 2. I WOULDN'T BE HEARTBROKEN IF I WAS COMPLETELY WRONG THOUGH !!!!!
  7. Voted player of the 2013/14 season!!!! Can't be as poor as some posters seem to think then can he? Can never understand why some owls fans seem to pick on a particular player (be it Palmer/Nuhiu/May or whoever) and then constantly slag them off match after match irrespective of performance. Only time I can accept such negative comments are if a player lacks commitment or effort during a match. them!Lets face it, no player goes out on matchday and plays poorly on purpose! Come on Owls fans get behind all our players and encourage not discourage
  8. Well Fedor the old farts might be posting but none of them are as boring as you.
  9. Wasn't Nuihu's penalty against Middlesbrough last season in injury time too. Strange isn't it that injury time winners seem to give much more pleasure than easy comprehensive wins. (Well apart from Owls 6 - 0 Leeds !!!!!)
  10. Best Wednesday photo of all time. Chris Waddle - Arms aloft - Running back towards us Owls fans after 2 minutes of Steel City Semi 1993. Got this as my screen saver on phone but I'm sorry I'm an old git who has no idea how to send it to you!!!
  11. would be great to have more atmosphere and noise from the Kop. They would have to learn to keep up though! every time they join in a song started in the North they insist on singing one line behind!
  12. Don't be such a tight Sod. Go to the turnstyle and pay your £3.
  13. Yea great idea. Been doing that for last few matches to access Wednesdayite carpark. Problem! According to official website concerning these roadworks the final layout includes a prohibition of left turn back into Penistone Road. Absolute 'kin chaos but not a surprise just what we expect from Sheffield Council's traffic planners. Don't think anyone in that department has driven a car in their lives!!!
