Grew up in Sheffield

1996 Emigrated to Canada

Not much chance of moving back (too expensive)

Miss watching Wednesday, but happy here!

Born in Sheffield, lived in Somerset, Reading, London, Edinburgh and now Seoul, S. Korea, teaching at a university. Just started back after 2 months paid holiday. It's a hard job. 15 whole (3-day) weeks till the holidays start again!

Popped over to Cambodia last summer. Near the top of my fave countries ever. Loved it. Better than Thailand and 'Nam (nothing bad about them, both great, but loved Cambodia more). Laos is next on my list to visit, and maybe a week in the Phillipines during the cold winter.

My current job is officially teaching English but I've kind of re-written my job descrition to: Converting Koreans to THE MASSIVE.

Live in the north of Sweden, Umeå, but from Borås near Gothenburg. Have supported Wednesday since 1969. First game in England away to Millvall 1972. Lovely place the Den.

Best game so far League Cup final win over Manure. Last game seen the derby win over Blades.

Born in Zimbabwe, raised in Skegness, lived most of my adult life in London, now live in Holland due to my fiancee. 8mnth old lad is a Wednesdayite, after the Derby matches and final day of last season my whole street knows I'm a Wednesday fan (after running up and down it pulling my hair out doing the 3 s's - screaming, shouting and singing, like a man possessed). The Sheffield connection is my Step-mum.

Was going through a messy divorce, so decided to take a 3 month contract in Belgium to 'get away from it all' and think.

Ended up marrying the secretary of the company I went to work for, 22 years later I'm planning my return.

My folks retired to Spain and dad has since swapped shirts with a Spanish builder to spread the word. I dream/plan on moving out to Oz at some point in the future.

Born in Broomhall, raised in Stannington, been visiting and living in Istanbul, Turkey for 2 years and 10 months respectively, married to a Turkish woman, converting 17 million Istanbul residents to the MASSIVE is difficult work, but worth it!

Born in Barnsley, spent 20 years in East Riding (hull Uni) and Cottingham. I met my Swiss wife in 2001 and moved here two years later. I make sure that all my colleagues and students know how massive we are. A few ex pats have commented on my owls stickers in the car but they usually just draw curious stares from the natives.
