  1. No wonder it costs so much. Reinforcements brought in from Durham police. Probably 100 or so plus vans etc. Overtime, mileage, grub etc. etc. all out of the people of Sheffields council tax. It just seems like overkill. I've been to every derby for 30 years and the policing gets more high profile every year and there are there very few incidents. Nothing compared to the recent events at the horse racing for instance.
  2. So if you have travelled all over the country watching the owls you will be behind the 1867 club members who have attended a couple of aways who have the extra 230 points. It's basically not fair on our loyalist fans who might not have the spare cash to stump for a Premier league season ticket iou. Also who writes our communications? Massive amount of confusion over this latest proposition.
  3. From what I've seen of him on BBC Sportscene which is the equivalent of MOTD up there he looks a liability in Hibs back four so wouldn't have thought he was up to Championship standard. Ponderous, poor distribution etc. There are good young defenders up there but not him.
  4. I know an old fella who knows him well from when he was with mufc and he always said he was an absolute diamond. Was popular in the local community and always in the local boozer.
  5. Just been seen on Fargate doing a bit of shopping with his wife ( presumably )
  6. I was told on Saturday that the Chairman's father was paying the day to day costs of the club.
  7. Excessive use of irony in a Owlstalk thread will possibly lead to ridicule
  8. I know a couple of students that came to university in Sheffield and loved the city so stayed on after their studies were finished. Both are season ticket holders with their kids so It is an opportunity to grow the support base. Unfortunately I feel the asian students ( of which there are thousands ) will not be interested in anything other than Premier league.
  9. Non league day on Saturday. Give your local Non league side a bit of support. Many have offers like letting you in for free on production of your SWFC season ticket. But please buy a half time draw ticket and a programme to at least contribute a bit to club funds. Me. I'm off to watch Frickley.
  10. Nicknamed the 'Ginger Pirlo' at Brentford
  11. As a season ticket holder I would have thought that unless you normally can't get to a game but spend a fortune in the club shop there's no benefit from membership. If I wasn't a season ticket holder I'd probably just ignore the membership option and pay the extra £ 5 for Leeds and the blades. It's not as if we are selling out games on a regular basis is it ?
  12. Dearer than the old firm match ? I find that hard to believe.
  13. Stopped buying every match years ago. Just buy one for the blunts matches, play offs, finals etc. And the last game of the season. Can see it happening but would be the end of an era.
  14. I used to have a 2005/6 away shirt signed by the squad for the Watford away game. Included Gabby Agbonlahor when he was on loan. Gave it away for a auction raising funds for Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice. Think it made £ 60.00 for a good cause.
  15. We should have beaten Watford the other year in their celebration game. Alas the referee bottled it in injury time. Still upset their day so it would be nice to do it to Wolves.
  16. I've signed and would love to us back standing on the kop.
  17. In. Promotion achieved with the most boring attritional football every seen. And I would love it.
  18. Snodgrass Bamford isn't making a lot of friends either. TBF if fans dish it out you've got to laugh when players give some back.
  19. Yeah and to get through the barriers you had to insert your ticket. And guess what, it didn't come out. It has been 'one of those days'
  20. Anybody on the 10.18 Doncaster to Kings Cross is already entitled to a refund as some poor soul chucked themselves on the line at Hitchin and we were delayed two hours. I always feel sorry for the train drivers in these circumstances. Puts losing three points in perspective.
  21. Which it looks like it has already by the noises coming out of the club about FFP. Otherwise I can't see any reason for the club effectively mortgaging future ticket sales.
  22. My concern is that plan A three years ago was to accumulate a 'war chest' of transfer funds to blow the opposition out of the water and get promotion to the top flight. It patently hasn't worked and now it appears we're going down the same road again. If this is to work we really need to get recruitment right or we could be in a mess financially.
  23. Attitude at Man Utd was supposedly abysmal but if the lad has given his head a wobble and sorted himself out then fair play to him. We need pace, height and strength in midfield before another striker. We also seem to be in the market for a left back.
  24. Why whenever we have a cup tie and close a stand due to expectations of a low attendance we then get this warning. There's always loads of closed turnstiles so why don't the club just open a few more up ? Is it just a cost saving or is there another reason such as so many turnstiles have card scanners. Seems madness to have to turn up extra early on a freezing cold night to sit in a ground that's a quarter full.
  25. Surely the Premiership TV money would more than covered the loss of season ticket income. Also there's the parachute money if relegated.
