  1. Wife's birthday weekend and already have tramlines tickets so am a bit gutted to not be able to go. Have actually been to Lubeck twice, the Holstentor is a must see and it's not far from the train station. Train to Lubeck is about an hour tops, and it's not a crappy Northern Rail pacer train either... Lubeck is popular in Germany for it's Marzipan, and there are dozens of shops devoted to the stuff. Beer should be relatively cheap up there, and if you're in Hamburg, and you do happen to visit the Reeperbahn, you can drink on the street there, so grab yourself a bottle of Astra at one end, and get ready to 'enjoy' the sights. Club Molotow is at one end and frequently has live bands on from UK/America.
  2. They've produced some lovely photoshop images, but I don't think anything has even started yet.
  3. Kenilworth Road is an absolutely shocking ground. One of the worst in the football league.
  4. Gerald Sibon in the 88 pinstripe home kit Nuhiu in the green hooped away
  5. Is anyone able to help? I'm looking for the squad 'official' photo from 2007/08
  6. We have some good players, but they're individuals of sorts. A good TEAM can generally name a formation and the players that will (give or take) play in it. Can you say that for us? Where would you put Reach and Forestieri? What formation? Square pegs, round holes.
  7. I don't disagree. We just can't afford him. Consistency gets you out of this league (the right way)
  8. Nothing to do with luck. Too many mercenaries stealing a wage.
  9. Plays one game in five, liability, a fantastic player on his day but sadly his day is once every 6 months. Get this guy off the wage bill
  10. You missed the lovely surroundings and welcoming locals.
  11. Yes, it's true. My parents were on the official coaches and she told me they'd been given a free packed lunch.
  12. Haven't ever seen one. First one i'm aware of is 88/89
  13. It really makes me laugh, seen quite a few posts on here and social media about how they wouldn't swap places, give me the championship every week etc etc, what a load of nonsense! If you don't want the premier league 'experience', switch to supporting Hallam FC, much cheaper prices, no priority points required for an away game, and it's a regional league so you don't have to spend a month's wages on a pint in that London. I want to see Sheffield Wednesday playing against the best teams, and hopefully beat them now and again, like we used to frequently in the 90s. All this "i'd rather stay in the championship" is laughable. Those tuesday night games at home to the likes of Bolton and Millwall really get the juices flowing!!
  14. Was in the home end behind the goal, so opposite end to most wednesday fans. In fairness they were singing quite a bit where I was, mainly about hating Spurs, or Spurs' lack of trophies recently. Towards the end there was a chant of "you've had your day out, now f**k off home" which made me chuckle. Could see Tango's moobs from 100 yards away.
  15. Remember that one, he took a right beating. After about 40 seconds of the match
  16. Following on from the thread when we've sat in the home end at away grounds, does anybody have any tales of opposing fans in the home stands at Hillsborough? I can remember an odd one, we were at home to Gillingham, and there were three Gills fans next to me in the North Stand. It just seemed quite odd as there were about 300 in the away end, so it wasn't sold out! Also one was a woman, so I can't imagine they were a bunch of banned hooligans! Just seems very odd that you'd actively choose not to sit with your own fans. They did score too, and it was a sort of mumbled 'yes' from them. Weird!
  17. 3-3 at Brentford. We were 3-1 up with 10 minutes to go. Was sat next to the world's biggest Brentford fan, who kept asking me about players, formations etc. Managed to blag it with a mockney accent until the equaliser went in, all the Brentford fans around me were in hysterics. In the home end on Sunday!
  18. So, let's look at how much this COULD raise. If we have 20,000 season ticket holders, but 5,000 are kids, then you have 15,000 people that will be interested (in theory). Obviously there are prices for different stands, so i'll use the North/Grandstand price as the average. If 15,000 people all bought a five year package at £2,775, that would raise £41,625,000. What would (just over) 40 million pounds buy us in today's market. You'd probably get three very good players and maybe have enough left to cover their wages for the length of the contract. And that's it. Regardless of the fact these players could (and probably would knowing our luck) get injured, would three players make that much difference to our team? Also, there's no guarantee they'd be any good. It's a massive throw of the dice - at best.
