    #OnThisDay in 1966

    I was there, I went with my dad and caught the first train back to Sheffield,after the game. I still have the blue and white striped flag my mum made for me with OWLS across it in dark blue letters. I was twelve at the time and it was brilliant getting back to the Midland station, all the Wednesdayites singing. Before the game Chelsea firm favourites so great result particularly as Vic Mobley was a passenger for a large part of the game, no substitutes in those days ! Great day out and great memories. Went to the final as well but let's not spoil the memory.

    #SWFC 150th Anniversary Fun Day

    It will be more fun than being at Loftus Road tonight irrespective of the weather !

    Who was Bob Gorrill?

    Yes he was the commercial manager, also played football for De La Salle old boys and was a Blade !

    FA Cup 5th round draw

    I would prefer Spurs away (if they beat Newport) Wembley three times, 5th round, semi and final !
  5. A solid 8/10 Thought Wednesday acquitted themselves really well. Well organised, hustled and chased United all game, Wildsmith had a great game he looked assured throughout. Watched it with a couple of neighbours who are neutrals ( Spurs fans) they felt Wednesday were more likely to pinch it at the end and we nearly did with Reach, only a brilliant save from their keeper kept it out. We did lack some creativity but no Bannan, Lee, Hooper or ForestierI etc. so that will come when they are back and used effectively by the new manager. It was a good result for Wednesday, early days for Lukukay but he easily passes the first test in my opinion, i.e. Not losing the derby and keeing a clean sheet at the Lane was a big bonus. The Carlisle game will give him more time to assess our squad and improve oerformances. Only down side was Loovens, not just the sending off, he has been a great captain and a good player for us with lots of class but he seems to be losing his ability to keep up with the pacey forwards and that is what cost him the second yellow. Still I am sure others will step up. Must admit watching derbies on television is purgatory if I'm at the game or not, just hate it when United get the ball and attack. Anyway a moral victory for Wednesday last night, must admit a couple of weeks ago I thought we might get hammered ! UTO

    Worst performance of the season !

    Never really in the game today. Poor performances from too many players. Wildsmith another good game can't be blamed for either goal. Reach ran and ran to his credit but the result was never in doubt after they scored. Struggle to see how Nuhiu can be picked ahead of Joao. He may have served us well up to a point but he is simply not good enough at this level any more. Let's hope we get a good manager asap. Ah well press on and start again in 2018 !

    Where are our next points coming from ?

    Eight wins to get 24 points, should be more than do able. Burton at home maybe next 3 points. A point at either Forest or Brentford would steady the nerves though.
  8. Given last year Blackburn were relegated on 51 points and a poor goal difference ( we already have 27) how many points do we think we will end the season with ? Also which game do you think our next 3 points will come from ?
  9. Not the best shirt or kit granted but not a bad team though !!

    FA Cup Third Round

    Spurs away - Wembley!

    10 from 12

    Agree that would be good but the real problem is 24 pts from 17 games which is simply mid table form however you look at it. Even 27 from 18 if we win tomorrow night (and I would be delighted if we did as it would be a really good 3 points) is still well below where I thought we would be at this stage of the season. Still plenty to play for and in this league we are still in the hunt for the play offs. Automatic really long gone IMO but hope I'm wrong !

    If This Was Next Years Kit?

    Yes looks good and certainly looks like the kit most football fans would recognise as our kit. Personally I like the current kit but Wednesday should be in stripes tradition and all that.

    Ron Springett

    As a kid went to Hillsboro' just after Christmas in 1964 to see Wednesday v Leicester in the old First Division. It was a night match, absolutely freezing, stood on the corner of Leppings lane where there was a small roofed bit. Springett in our goal Gordon Banks in theirs, both played brilliantly 0-0 at the end but a great display of goal keeping. I remember Banks clapping some of Ron Springett's tremendous saves.. Although 0-0 really enjoyable game. Springett was a really top keeper in his day so dependable and pulled off the spectacular when he had to. Happy days !
