  1. And if you joined us next season (& we manage not to relegated), it would be good to shut the L**ds supporters up for a few years.
  2. Thanks. I think both teams have folk I enjoy chatting to and those I wish would support L**ds.
  3. Look, I have NO problem admitting the Blades have had a seriously bad time (with SWFC being the more successful local club for a few years). I worried we'd never get out of League One. Just shows what a good manager can do. Looks like SB might be able to do the same for you.
  4. Yes, I support the Blades, but I am genuinely interested in how you do. I can also be (I think) fair & honest about your positives & strengths. For instance, I wish we could score some of those brilliant long-range goals you've got recently. We tend to score after about a million passes.
  5. Weird? Maybe; it's just boring looking at a single window. I can't even get Radio Sheffield where I live.
  6. The obsession lives on! It isn't obsession; it's rivalry. I basically don't believe any Blade or Wednesday supporter who says they don't look at the 'other' sides result.
  7. It will be a sad day for SUFC when Wilder moves on. (3-0 to the Blades now, by the way.)
  8. I don't have enough Blades loyalty points to get to most away matches (ST at the Lane though), so I 'watch' away matches via social meedia. I have two windows open on my PC: www.s24su.com and www.owlstalk.co.uk.
  9. Nope. I'm a Blade and if it came to SWFC or Leeds going up - my loathing of Leeds is strong - so I'd go for the Owls getting promoted.
  10. I understand this focus on United. I'm a Blade and I ALWAYS look at Wednesday's result first after United's. We are revivals. We argue about who are the top team in Sheffield: Sometimes it's Wednesday, sometimes it's United. It's not a nice thing to admit, but we always want the other Sheffield team to lose - with possible exceptions like when they're playing Leeds ('cus no real Sheffielder wishes Leeds FC anything other than relegation & bankruptcy). I've supported United since the 1970s. When I started going to the Lane then we were in a golden period. Tony Currie and all that. Wednesday have had your periods of glory since. We can argue till the 'cows come home' about who has been the biggest team over the last few decades. I will certainly concede our LONG period in League One was very dispiriting, whilst you got to the Championship sooner. When you got promoted out of League One first at our expense that was an EXTREMELY painful moment; not just to miss out on promotion, but to miss out to Wednesday. I'm sure you'll get that. These folk on Owlstalk (or S24SU) who say they are above looking at 'the pigs' (whoever they are!) I think are a bit unusual. Supporting a team means wanting our rivals to lose. This is not Disney. We don't all win. I want United to win & get promoted. I also want you to lose. Finally I'd add that those so-called supporters (or either team) who think violence is a natural part of football are dinosaurs. I don't want a single Wednesday supporter physically hurt. But relegated? Sure!
  11. We have just the same problem at Bramall Lane. I go with my two young children. We have season tickets in the so-called Family Stand (John Street Stand). Week after week there are clearly articulated obscene mouthfuls coming from the seats all around us. When I point out to them that my children can hear them, they always say 'Sorry'. Unfortunately they are only quiet until the next bad tackle or (in their opinion) questionable refereeing decision. Of course we know that school can often be the same. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't have safe places we can get away from it. It's disappointing.
