  1. From The Bing And I I have dreamed that your ground is lovely I have dreamed what a toy you’d be I have dreamed every goal we’d cheer for At The Etihad, when we’re up five-three. How you’d look, in the glow of floodlights I have dreamed; you may ask what’s new? Well, in these dreams we have it made We shall put the rest in shade When we climb to the top of the tree, I know lots about football, me! (instrumental) In my dreams, I have worked out That a bid is worth a shout I shall come and set this great club free How about, shall we say, 10p?
  2. Jack Ross. Only 45 and has a lifetime win percentage close to 50%, despite having started at Alloa. He took Hibs to 3rd place last year, which is not easy, and to this season's League Cup Final. Fired last month after 7 defeats in 9 league games, but, looking at his overall record, that was an aberration rather than the rule. Still has a win record near 49% with Hibs at the time.
  3. That was exactly the goal NML was practising in warm-up!
  4. I was thinking along similar lines when I saw this news. Reportedly, he’s thinking about taking his coaching badges now he’s 39, but discouraged by the lack of opportunities for black managers. Since Charlton are apparently on the radar, he isn’t worried about dropping down the leagues. I hope DM has at least spoken to him about coming here until the end of the season. We could do a very great deal worse (and frequently have).
  5. Well, my bags are packed, it’s early morn The taxi’s waitin’; he’s blowin’ his horn, I hate t’Uwakwe up to say goodbye….
  6. Some Owlstalk members will be old enough to remember how difficult it was for England managers to fit Gerrard and Lampard into the same side. Both were highly talented players, but they seldom looked it when they played together. This was because their instinctive positioning was the same, therefore one of them always had consciously to fill a role in which he didn’t feel comfortable. When you have to think before acting, you do tend to look slower when compared to an instinctive player. I don’t imagine being in the Third Division precludes our having essentially the same problem, does it?
  7. Well, I live near Falkirk. In Falkirk is a Thai restaurant called Erevan. I find that Erevan is the Thai name of a three-headed elephant who is the king of all elephants and the mount of Indra, the Hindu patron god of warriors. This sounds promising. I research some more. In Feng Shui, it makes a difference whether the elephant statue’s trunk is lifted or lowered. Up represents prosperity; down represents longevity. The great thing about Erevan having three heads is he can do both. It is, however, a bad thing in Feng Shui not to treat your elephants with respect. My conclusion: our problems derive not from too many elephants but too few; our elephants are currently overworked and receive so many negative vibes that they feel under-appreciated. Nobody likes to feel unappreciated. We actually need more elephants: elephants facing the entrance as well as away from it; elephants with trunks raised as well as lowered. More elephants! So quit with the negative waves already. Trust the elephants. Be nice to elephants and everything will be all right.
  8. Probably my fault: Let it be understood We could be twice as good, And since we’re Sheffield Wednesday We most probably should. But since we’re in Crewe, And we’re visiting you, And since we’re Sheffield Wednesday, We shall only score two!
  9. Oxford and MKD have just swapped places and Plymouth have pulled one back. Any chance of scoring four more guys?
  10. Posted elsewhere, but.... Real Madrid? Who are Real Madrid? When you got Sheffield Wednesday, Who needs Real Madrid? We play with real flair, Like we're walking on air, We're Real Sheffield Wednesday And we know it ain't fair. Let it be understood We could be twice as good, And since we’re Sheffield Wednesday We most probably should. But since we’re in Crewe, And we’re visiting you, And since we’re Sheffield Wednesday, We shall only score two!

  12. The past is always with us. Even though I’ve exceeded my allotted biblical span, it’s still quite easy for me to see in my mind’s eye a playback of Alan Finney making Roma’s international right back look clumsy, or Don Megson depositing both the ball and some nippy right-winger along with it into the advertising hoardings. We were League runners-up behind a double winning Spurs team when achieving the double was something almost unheard of. At the time, I was a half-decent athlete myself. I was rowing at Henley before the end of the decade. Now I have arthritis in my wrists and a shoulder that constantly reminds me of all the falls I took when I changed sports and became a steeplechase amateur jockey. My best Wednesday memories date back the best part of a lifetime. You have to be my age to remember it, and most people, fortunately for them, are not my age. My own sporting career is similarly a thing of the past. But that doesn’t mean I can’t turn to something else. You work with what you have, you try coming at life from a different direction. I discovered I can write and people want to publish what I write. (Some of the time – you can’t win ‘em all.) Like me, Wednesday are not what they were. But most of the things that matter are still here. The heart’s still beating; the supporters still believe; the team still matters because it’s a collective focus of potential achievement for a city population and diaspora that have had at least their fair share of hard knocks, if not more. As I said, you work with what you have. You will find you still have a lot that’s worthwhile. Just don’t let the b______s grind you down.
  13. I remember both of those games, I think. We did fine to get a win at Stamford Bridge, you know. It was just the fixture congestion, and all the injuries we'd picked up in the first game, meant we had to play a very inexperienced defence at Hastings and the young lads got caught too far up the pitch when the other side counter-attacked.
  14. When the ball hits the goal that’s not Shearer or Cole That's Kamberi When your world has gone flat but you snap out of that You’re an Owl Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling And you'll sing "Hi Ho, Wednesday" Chey can play like we played in those long ago days We were something! When the game makes you feel that your hopes could be real That's our Greggers When you dance down the wing like the ball’s on a string Theo’s on When you walk in a dream, but you know you're not dreaming, we scored three Excuse me, but you see, like back then, once again, We were something!
  15. HEED WETSANDY! Oh dear. But don't worry. I have all the right letters; it's just taking me some time to find the right order.
