  1. Wednesday in debt

    We've raised a loan to pay Atdhe's signing on fee
  2. #OnThis Day in 1980

    Going into the game we were four points clear of Chesterfield; we had two games to play and they had three. If they had won that day and then beaten United in mid-week (which they did) it could have gone down to the last day. As it was they lost at Millwall so our goal difference made promotion a certainty.
  3. #OnThisDay in 1966

    I was there.....
  4. #OnThisDay in 1930 - Champions !

    Everton and Burnley went down, despite Burnley beating Derby 6-2 on the last day. United avoided the drop on goal average after winning 5-1 at Old Trafford. And we put five past Man City....
  5. One for the ladies

    Looks like he's pulled down at the local Costas.....
  6. Guess the year for this one..

    The lino actually reminds me of one of those Subbuteo figures.
  7. Leeds United in race to sign #SWFC keeper...

    Whilst Westwood might go it's pretty laughable to think he'd go to Leeds.
  8. Championship team of the year

    He had a purple patch last autumn, which we managed to kick start, where he got hat tricks in successive home games. But just after that he went through a run of one goal in 15 games. Perhaps what it shows is that there has been no really outstanding striker in the Championship this season.
  9. Guess the year for this one..

    I've seen that pic before and torryowl is absolutely right. It is from the last match of the 1927/28 season when we beat Villa 2-0 to avoid relegation and complete The Great Escape. We then went on to win the league the next two seasons. I remember the caption said that the Villa player on the right standing just outside the area is Billy Walker who was Wednesday manager when we won the cup seven years later.
  10. was it? and why?

    Yes, the change was made in 1965. Eric Taylor said at the time that he wanted a new look to blow away the cobwebs from the bribes scandal and they'd also found it impossible to get suitable striped shirts whilst away on tour. With the all-white 1966 cup kit back then when there was a colour clash in a cup game both sides usually changed. It then got adopted as our lucky kit for the cup run, partly also because every tie was away; hence when we played the final we were quite happy to let Everton use their home kit. Personally I hated it cos we basically looked like Leeds.
  11. Blast from the past - Lee Chapman

    He was certainly a brave player; always looked a bit awkward but got his share of goals. Didn't he get his features substantially re-arranged at Spurs?
  12. Joe Cockroft

    You need to get "Sheffield Wednesday - The Complete Record" by Brodie and Dickinson. This gives team line ups, scorers, attendances etc etc for every game up to the end of the 2010/11 season and includes war time games. There is also "Sheffield Wednesday - A Complete Record 1867 - 1987" by Keith Farnsworth although that is not quite as accurate. I would also recommend "Wednesday!" also by Keith Farnsworth from 1982 which is an excellent written history of the club.
  13. #SWFC - new Injury Update

    Wasn't Kivo on the pitch yesterday? Can't he play?
  14. It's all part of football management. Andy Cole and Teddy Sheringham famously hated the sight of each other but it didn't stop them being a prolific partnership for Man Utd. If, when Winnall is back, Jos can get the best out of both of them then that has to be the best solution.
  15. Joe Cockroft

    Look on Adrian Bullock's website for 1946/47 and you will see that in the player listing at the bottom he shows 33 appearances for Cockcroft. But on Cockcroft's individual record he shows only 32. So it's a simple answer; he put the wrong figure down and there is no "rogue appearance"
