  1. I think the household rubbish etc. was used to level out the pitch as there was a considerable slope originally, they didn't quite get it right as there is still the slope towards the Kop even today. But how the Kop was built up would be an interesting story.

    Tickets bought online

    Spanish Doubloons were accepted from the Villareal fans, I'm told. :)
  3. Seem to remember Viv Anderson as a young left back for Nottingham Forest around 1975 putting it pretty neat the cantilever roof.

    Blast from the past - Gerry Young

    Saw him in the doctors on Far Lane last November. Said to the missus "I'm sure that's Gerry Young who played for Wednesday year's ago" (couldn't mistake the broken nose). Any doubt was removed when the receptionist shouted "Gerald Young".
  5. He's stood on an orange box
  6. Teddy Davison was before everybody's time but looks like he was a legend for both Sheffield clubs. Keeper for Wednesday, manager for United. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teddy_Davison

    You're absolutely right, I was being sarcastic ..... I was talking to some Newcastle fans after he'd moved up there for £110,000 and they couldn't thank Wednesday enough for letting them have such a class player for a cut price. They loved him up there, think he became skipper.

    Presume you mean Eric Potts and not Tommy Craig. Potts was player of the year twice and scored in that memorable match against Southend that kept Wednesday out of Division 4.

    Daftest Moments as a Fan

    That Oxford United trainer from the 1970s with the very effeminate run. Everybody wolf whistled him when he ran on to treat one of their players.

    Just me happy with Butterfield?

    Change of club can rejuvenate a stalling career. Remember Lee Chapman, Andy Blair and Gary Shelton all coming to Hillsborough in a similar situation and not doing too bad ... give the bloke (Butterfield) a chance.
  11. Peter Feeley, signed by Len Ashurst from Gillingham in the bad bad bad days. And he was bad and not very popular.
  12. Not complete though .... No Ronnie Starling, Jack Palethorpe, Jack Surtees or Wilf Sharp

    Out of the blocks

    As Howard Wilkinson once said, "You can't take any notice of the league tables till the end of November".

    Carlos defiant.

    We had a similar situation with Di Canio, he more or less went on strike and the club had to cave in and grant him a move to West Ham .... bad do
