  1. Thanks so much for posting that Dunsby - I was born the day after. I wonder if me dad went (almost certainly did!).
  2. You findings are flabby and impressionistic - more research needed!
  3. Apologies if this has already been posted - I've not read all the pages: Having "Chansiri" printed in just letters, without a horizontal block breaking up the stripes, looks much better.
  4. Was Peter Grummitt really no good? I always thought of him as a decent keeper, but I was too young to be a reliable judge. He did play in the 1st division for Forest and us, but only went on to Brighton afterwards. I remember he came 2nd once in Save of the Season on Sportsnight With Coleman - a reaction save from a close range header at home to QPR. It's good to see Johnny Sissons there - he was great in his short time with us. I remember the roar from the cantilever as he shot down the left wing. Peter Rodrigues was excellent too. Jimmy Mullen was capable enough, and we all loved Prendo. That just leaves Steve Downes; I don't like to criticise people on the internet, but he was never one of our greats!
  5. Too right - the NHS patients are still waiting!
  6. To me, a Wednesdayite since the 60's, it's always been Hillsborough. To my Dad, a fan since the 40's, it's still The Wednesday Ground - but he still thinks he sits in the New Stand (south). I think the name change from Owlerton to Hillsborough was something to do with electoral boundary changes, but I wouldn't put more than a couple of bob on it.
  7. Cheers mate - much appreciated. This is my first attempt at any form of social media and I don't think I'm coming across quite right - I'll get better (or jack it in!). I probably deserved negging for the pun on Burton.
  8. I tend to agree with theowlsman, and that it was a job well done, but we don't really know. I could be, for example, that it was a successful bid for a pay rise, that the chairman's statement was just spin for the fans, that a star player was seen as having been forgiven all too easily, and that team spirit went for a Burton. I don't think so, but you never know. I think we can assume that the agent is still tapping up Premiership/foreign teams, and that Wednesday are tracking possible replacements (you'd hope we'd be doing that anyway, for all positions). Keep up the fishing owlsman - it's a good antidote to professional sport.
  9. I know dnhc, you're right - we have to compete in the environment we're in.- But I would like to see standing brought back.
  10. Stood for years on the kop - loved it - bring it back. Make it proper terraces, not "safe standing" - and charge half price as well. They never will though - too scared any risk, and they want to control us, make us in to proper little corporate consumers.
