  1. Don't give them another penny!!!

    I used to pay 25p to stand on the Kop in 1973 (50p for adults). We used to lose a lot and Cushions rained on the pitch from the North Stand regularly. The fans disquiet worked a treat though. We got relegated to the 3rd division two seasons later. It was bad then, much worse than now. However, it was cheap. The prices are diabolical now. Plus our biggest rivals are doing much better than expected which is magnifying our disenchantment. I still believe will reach the promised land sooner rather than later. Unfortunately, the prices will increase yet again at that point which will rule me out attending anymore.
  2. It looked like a large terrace. Was it as big as the Kop?
  3. Media Coverage

    Ther were complaints to BBC this morning about their lack of coverage. The lady sports presenter responded by saying her boss is an owl. Anyone else see it?
  4. Which areas are Wednesday

    Drabble estate, up Hollow Lane.
  5. Which areas are Wednesday

    I grew up in Halfway. I'd say it's 50-50 in S20.
  6. On this day 1982

    I was a there!
  7. Saturday

    If ForestIeri is still missing with a sore knee, I think we'll play well and should get 3 points.
  8. To be honest, I don't remember the score as my friends and I were quite intoxicated. However, I remember the shirt and wanted one but they weren't on sale anywhere.
  9. Frederico

    He needs taking up the Kop first.
  10. New Pete McKee Picture

    I think it's bloody great. My only tiny nitpick is the pointed Kop hump. However, it's probably deliberate having seen his other work. I shall be purchasing a copy.
  11. Yes I agree. I only saw it once at Shrewsbury around 81/82 season?

    If.....the home kit had looked like the 60's version I may have been tempted to buy. This kit is just wrong though. Hugely disappointed with it.
  13. Softest Wednesday Player Ever

    I remember him running away from Kenny Burns on the pitch at Hillsborough against Leeds early 80's
  14. bet were not having a new kit

    I have it on good authority that Chelsea are going to lend us their kit and Leeds will chip in with the shirt sleeves and shorts.
  15. Barry Bannans shots

    I thought the title said Barry Bannans shorts. I was going to put they go down to his boots.
