  1. The original words of the song revised below mention Hector in the second line of the first verse. I thought we might need some new words to the same tune: Then let us fill a bumper, and drink a health of those Who wear the blue and white stripes through all our highs and lows. May they and their supporters with victories be blest, So up with Sheffield Wednesday and down with all the rest!
  2. But, what’s this? It’s Atdhe Nuhui! He who once scored eight in ten! So what’s the chances of big Atdhe Scoring eight in ten again? Ye who scoff shall be confounded! Ye who laugh shall stay to praise Cos Atdhe’s gonna get a goal here Yep, that’s what the tea leaves says!
  3. When this lousy war is over alternatively What a friend we have in Jesus
  4. One-nil down at Derby County! Oh, how miserable are we? But we’ve got a secret weapon Sitting on the bench, you see. Hear the calls for Sammy Winnall, See the maestro take the field, Confidently scores a hat-trick! Proves The Wednesday never yield!
  5. It probably varies with the division we were in at the time. Not much point hating Arsenal and Man U if you're one or two leagues lower than them. Personally, I could never understand Albert Quixall leaving Wednesday to go to the vastly inferior Man U. But possibly my point of view was a trifle biased.
  6. Now a long time ago, in a division far, far away, we sang (to the tune of Land of Hope & Glory): We hate Nottingham Forest, We hate Arsenal too, We ALL hate Man United, But Wednesday, we love you!
  7. Concerned for Thornily. Wasn't he concussed this time last year? Did anyone hear any news?
  8. Bill Shankly famously remarked when someone criticised Roger Hunt for missing a lot, "Yes, but he gets into the right place to miss them." "The more I practice, the luckier I get," as someone once said.
  9. I know the 1961 Cup matches against them have already been mentioned, but 1961 was a very good year for The Owls against Manchester United all around. We played them four times in the calendar year, twice in the league and twice in the cup: Won 3 Drawn 1, Goals For 16 Against 5. The results were: 28th January FA Cup 4th Round SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY 1 Derek Wilkinson 14' MANCHESTER UNITED 1 Noel Cantwell 43' (pen) 1st February - 4th Round Replay MANCHESTER UNITED 2 Mark Pearson 4', Alex Dawson 60' SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY 7 John Fantham 2', 52', Alan Finney 30', 80', Keith Ellis 32', 38', 64' 25th March – Division 1 SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY 5 Noel Cantwell 4' (o.g.), Gerry Young 14', 52', 65', Bobby Craig 72' MANCHESTER UNITED 1 Bobby Charlton 89' 4th November - Division 1 SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY 3 John Fantham 9', Tony Kay 14', Keith Ellis 88' MANCHESTER UNITED 1 Dennis Viollet 20' I'm looking forward to our next such run!
  10. Dreaming unthinkable dreams has been allowed to Owls since at least 1928’s Great Escape and 1929’s championship. As yet I haven’t heard the BMI-challenged lady sing. Two wins from three for the rest of the season and we’re in the low seventies. Lowest ever promoted points score under the present system, if I remember rightly, was Blackpool (‘09-10) with 70 exactly. Lowest points to reach playoffs was Leicester (‘12-13) with 68.
  11. Happy New Year Everyone! The maths are now very easy. In the oddly-compressed league of 2012-13, Leicester reached the play-offs with 68 points while Peterborough were relegated with 54. Although this season the Championship has more of a tail, we are still in a situation where the leaders have barely two points a game. Assuming they continue at this rate, a team is likely to need around 86 points to make the automatic promotion places and around 73 to make the play-offs. Wednesday would, therefore, have a chance of the play-offs with 42 points from the last 21 games. Essentially we need to win two out of three for the rest of the season. Maintain the form of the last three games and we finish with 80 points. I know, but this is Wednesday, isn't it? Stranger things not only can happen, they already have.
  12. Away day at Boro, No crib sheet we’ll need To sing them a carol That they’ll have to heed. All stars in The Owls team! We’ll look back and smile, Once we’re best in Yorkshire By a country mile! Merry Christmas, everyone.
  13. I remember this from the remarkable result in 2000 - Celtic 1-3 Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Scottish Cup, "Super Caley go ballistic, Celtic are atrocious." Caley were not in the premier league at the time. But, when I looked it up, I find the Liverpool Echo used it of Ian Callaghan back in the 1970s - ' SUPER CALLY GOES BALLISTIC, QPR ATROCIOUS ' So obviously this one is up for grabs in any local paper if the Owls win at Swansea. Just trying to be helpful here.
