  1. It's appropriate Wednesday play Derby tomorrow. Sheffield born Jim was a big Wednesdayite from North Sheffield and did well with the Rams. The passing of a genuine character from a time when football was magic, before the days of Pep, Sky, ridiculous wages and such like. RIP Jim.
  2. Absolutely. First match 1977. Hardly missed since.
  3. Excellent today. Led by example.
  4. I agree with this entirely and have felt this way for a few seasons. It's great to hear that there are a few Owls who appreciate the lad. When you also consider the calibre of player who have stolen a living at S6 down the years - Jeffers, De Bilde, Rhodes for instance - Atdhe should be celebrated and valued by more supporters. And I feel his partnership with Fletcher could get us into the play offs.
  5. His pass in the six yard box for Forestieri to score must also stand out?
  6. Some good examples - as well as memories. Also, Terry Curran's switch from winger to central striker in 79-80.
  7. Interesting. A good stat. Any keeper would be pleased with that.
  8. We'd score more, but concede more too. Defensively, that midfield looks weak.
  9. A sense of perspective. I agree with you.
  10. In Owlstalk fashion: he should have scored! But seriously, a great effort. Developed impressively the last 12 months. Automatic selection for me.
  11. It's a fair point and does not mean you're less of a supporter. With all the media saturation you can follow your club from anywhere by any means.
  12. Walking out of the ground on Saturday my sister said, "that Borner was so solid", i couldn't muster a reply.
  13. I am proud to be part of the Kop clientele, being a season ticket holder on there. The soul of SWFC is on the kop. EBRA and all that. I wonder what sums up us Kopites. I went to university, attained a profession, live comfortably, and yet someone seems to insult those who go on the kop. I sit where I used to stand (with no roof) because it's the nearest I'll ever get to Wednesdayism - being a Wednesdayite, standing amongst the brethren, listening to them, sharing their elation as well as desperation. The Kop is great - an "alp of humanity" I once read in a book on English football grounds.
  14. Sorry, i thought we'd just won 4-1 away.
  15. Good old Atdhe. He played really well against Everton. Deserves a start today.
