  1. Up and Down?? Must have missed the Up's ☹️
  2. I don't read books as a rule, but, having lived through the three seasons in the book and attended the majority of matches it covers , i bought a copy for nostalgic reasons. Read it cover to cover in 2 days and found it well written and captures the feelings of the time. We were smaller in numbers then, the football was beyond terrible, but, we had the best of times and when people say the highs are so much higher when you have been this low, they are 100% correct
  3. The Hawthorns has been good over the years, as has Rotherham
  4. FA Cup 1991 lost 4-0, and League Cup a couple of years ago, Lost 2-1
  5. Been 10 times . Won 6 (3 league, 2 cup , 1 Shipp cup) Drawn 2 ( 1 league, 1 cup) Lost 2 (Both cup)
  6. Weve probably got a better record at Molineux than we have at Hillsborough. Dreadful home record against them
  7. Another unhappy ground was Gay Meadow Played Shrewsbury there 8 times. Won 1 Drew 4 Lost 3 New ground, played 1 lost 1 At Hillsborough Played 9, won 1 drew 6 Lost 2 Total Played 18. Won 2 Drew 10 Lost 6. 2 wins out of 18, and one of those 2 wins was a league cup game when we were 2 divisions higher
  8. In the 80's we alays struggled to win in London. Eventually, we beat Chelsea and Spurs, but the Highbury Hoodoo continued. I've seen Wednesday play Arsenalat Highbury 18 times . Won 0 Drawn 3 Lost 15. Included in the defeats were a 7-1 beating were it was 1-1 with 20 minutes to go and we were the best team. And 3-1 up with 10 minutes to go on our last visit (3-3). Another visit ended in semi -final defeat to Brighton. Only been to the Emirates once to see Scotland, and they lost 0-2 to Brazil. Dont miss going there at all
  9. I remember when we won away at reading. First away win for nearly 2 years. Fans were actually in the off licence buying champagne. Grown men hugging each other, it was like we had won the FA cup or something
  10. Looking back, it's hard to understand why we were so elated by winning the shipp cup. We were so rubbish even the smallest success, including scoring and winning away were embraced
  11. First year Peterborough Lincoln and cambridge. We won it by going to cambridge and beating them 5-2. Second year, huddersfield replaced Lincoln
  12. Home to Manchester city 1970. They did their best to let us win and we still lost 2-1 and were relegated
  13. I took a portable to Oldham. Same night rangers were playing Marseille. There were more people round us looking at the screen than our match
  14. Agree with most of these Add in Leon Clarke lobbing the keeper in the last minute to beat Leicester 3-1 in what was virtually a relegation decider
  15. It was us that equalised, a few minutes after Rotherham went 2-1 up after that cheating twt Towner took a dive for the penalty Gary Bannister made it 2-2
  16. Was it? It was a long time ago. Perhaps the smallest man in the history of football scoring a hat-trick of headers scarred me more than i thought.
  17. David Speedies 3rd at Highfield Road when we lost 0-5 to Coventry. I had backed us to lose 4-0 at 22 to 1
  18. There used to be 9 bars on Wicker. All Wednesday, the Big Gun being a real stronghold. Only 1 of the 9 left now,
  19. Bolton Early 1974 Half time score 4-0 Bolton Finished 4-2
  20. the Old Light Horseman. Proper pub post-1-1171893237.jpg 44 kb · Done
  21. Back in the 70's, one of the worst grounds for away fans must have been Hillsborough. They used to park the away coaches at the dog track. Police were usually noticable by their abscence, and it was a long long way with both sides of the road packed with the East Banks finest
  22. Yep. And remember the large wooden cable drum launched off a roof in Newcastle. How that didn't kill someone i'll never know
  23. No, definately away. Indelibly imprinted on my brain even 40 years later. Inter City Owl train was at Paddington, and the underground pulled in from Fulham Broadway. Must have been 4 or 500 hundred Chelsea there, absolute carnage. Police lost control, remember they had handcuffed a Chelsea fan to a railing. And them sent the Wednesday fans down the same passageway. Left him in a pretty bad way i suspect. Think Chelsea were taken aback how we had a go back at them, even if there was no choice. If you wern't up for it that day , you never would be
