  1. #SWFC Fan and Star columnist Laura Jones puts forward a discussion here about the practicality and expense of following your football team. And I bet she's not the only one in this position too “Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose an all-consuming football team… ” No one ever talks about the practicalities of being a football supporter. It takes planning, additional finance and motivation to keep doing it. It’s especially hard if like me; you no longer live in the city where your beloved team reside, you have to travel with a two-year-old, and you have a full-time job to fit in somewhere. https://www.thestar.co.uk/sport/football/sheffield-wednesday/when-life-becomes-more-important-than-football-sheffield-wednesday-fan-s-column-1-9137696?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter
  2. #SWFC head to Molineux on Saturday and tickets for visiting supporters are on sale until 2.00pm on Friday. Tickets are available online at shop.sheffieldwednesday.co.uk or from the Owls’ Ticket Office to supporters with an SWFC purchase history. After this time, tickets will be taken off sale and will not be available on the matchday. Pre-paid tickets can be collected from the Wolves’ main Ticket Office situated between the Stan Cullis and Billy Wright stands.
  3. #SWFC are pleased to announce that the second phase of 2018/19 Season Ticket sales begins today and is open to all supporters until the end of May. Second phase prices are frozen at 2017/18 level, while our commitment to the next generation of supporters sees no increase for junior Owls in the Grandstand Family Area from the Early Bird prices announced last month - meaning it’s quid a kid for under 11s, or just £23 for the whole campaign. It was confirmed earlier today that SWFC have once again received the Family Excellence Award for 2018, which reflects our complete commitment to young Wednesdayites. For the new season, under 17s in the Grandstand pay £75 - or just £3.26 per game - with prices frozen once more. Under-17s in all other areas of the stadium pay only £199 and Under-11s £99. Adult prices, meanwhile, start from £505 on the Kop, with concessions from £280. All supporters have until 5.00pm in store on Thursday 31 May at midnight online to purchase 2018/19 Season Tickets at second phase prices. Current Season Ticket holders still to renew are advised that this is the final opportunity to guarantee your seat for next term. Season Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased in person at the Ticket Office, by telephone on 03700 201867 or at the Sheffield Wednesday Online Shop. We can also confirm that you can spread the cost of a Season Ticket over six months with our finance partner V12*. Thank you for your support! *An arrangement fee of 6.25% is added to the first payment.
  4. #SWFC are one of 56 EFL clubs to achieve Family Excellence status for 2018, cementing our commitment to the younger generation of the present and future. The Family Excellence award recognises continuous improvement and best practice in family engagement across the leagues and supports clubs’ efforts to attract and retain young fans of the future. All EFL clubs received two ‘mystery family’ visits throughout the season, with their feedback and reports determining who would achieve ‘Family Excellence’ status. EFL Chief Executive Shaun Harvey said: “It is hugely encouraging to see the continuous development and improvement made by EFL clubs in offering engaging matchday experiences for families. “For over a decade the EFL’s Family Excellence Scheme has helped to produce positive and impactful change across the leagues, helping to drive a real focus on match day entertainment, facilities and the overall experience on offer for families, and ultimately to assist in growing attendances. “Its impact continues to be notable with several clubs gaining strong industry-wide reputations for offering true family value and a consistently high level of service and innovation. “The EFL will continue to work with clubs to help drive change and support the continued effort to attract and retain future generations of supporters.”
  5. #SWFC boss Jos Luhukay has explained how Sheffield Wednesday will recruit players for next season "I have spoken with the chairman about the future, about our team, the club. We are on speaking terms," "We are intensive with that, we must look at what we can do for the future. "Money is not important, what is important is what you want to do and see what is possible. We are looking for the options we can have, we do what we can and what we can't do. We must try to come to a good team together." "First we will look at our own club - our academy. For me personally but also for the club and the future very important. "We had Sean Clare, Jordan Thorniley and a lot of young players and also both goalkeepers. Joe (Wildsmith) and Cammy (Dawson) they have been 14 years at the club so you have an identification with the club but also with the fans. Jos was speaking in todays press conference (full video in a thread on Owlstalk) "I think it is very important to look in the Championship for typical players - they know the league, they know the culture, they know how to play in the Championship. I think also we must look at the under 23s at bigger clubs in the Premier League - players with a high dynamic, with a high spirit but also maybe in the future need to take a step back and after maybe go a step forward. "This is the way - first look at our own players in the Academy, then the Championship and maybe under 23s from the Premier League clubs but who maybe don't have a chance for the first team but maybe the Championship is maybe the challenge to go further in their own career." Looks like we're in for a way more organised approach from now on
  6. Wednesday in debt

    It's up to those who dont' hold negative views to counter-argue then The more people post positives the less heard the negative ones will be
  7. Arnold Schwarzenegger would play Hutch - deffo Jimmy Krankee would be Barry Bannan
  8. Wednesday in debt

    Exactly Nothing to even raise an eyebrow at this one Not sure why people are getting in a pickle Especially given the wealth and desire of our chairman
  9. With the season nearly at an end this thread should go out on a massive high Let's get it done
  10. Wednesday in debt

    The only speculation I've seen is that Wednesday are in debt?
