Sheffield Wednesday in Popular Culture

Recommended Posts

Every other Saturday, I go to this big sports stadium. Other people go to. They sing and chant about Wednesday whilst this team plays football.

All this time...I had no idea you were a Blade...

Yeah, he would often wear Wednesday gear as well, quite subtle stuff, I'm sure he has a T-Shirt on in one episode that said "Owusu" on it. Think it was in the style of a bar code.

 

Used to flat out wear Wednesday Kits when he was in Soldier Soldier

Was going to post that. Except that they didn't say either "bugger" or "flipping".

Try using the proper words and it will say poopydoo and flipping :-)

One of Alistair Mcgowan's early impression series used to make Wednesday jokes all the time, one of the producers or directors must have been a fan because it happened so often it was ridiculous.

he also had a "Hirst 9" shirt in the same style as the Owusu one

Martin Cloones makes reference to something being "as enjoyable as being on a train full of Sheffield Wednesday supporters" in an episode of Men Behaving Badly.

 

Been rewatching these - one of the last proper sitcoms before PC started to strangle comedy writing.

 

Very much a product of its time and reflects a different era.

 

Season 1 with Enfield is pretty awful.

 

The Clunes comment has just come up and rather caught me by surprise...I’d forgotten it.

 

we were a top club then too..

Watching an episode of Brookside in the 90s (i was young so had to watch whatever my Mum did so calm down, calm down)

Anyway there was this schoolgirl telling Te, Barry's mate, that she had a ticket for the following day to watch Liverpool play Sheffield Wednesday.

 

Wasn't much of a big deal in all honesty but i found it amazing at the time.

An entire episode of Murdoch Mysteries set in 1903 revolves around Wednesday winning the league and as confirmation of this reaches Canada Tom’s character, Inspector Brackenreid 0996F268-60D1-4086-9FE2-C68B132D9949.thumb.jpeg.ebec3ab676aff7f75a7d7472696f204c.jpeghas the entire cast bouncing!

The Wednesday scarves are authentic for the period and some of the historical details for the program were provided by OT’s very own “Dunsby Owl”!

Should have left it on, sounded like a magic hat.

 

Jackie Charlton wore one.

Bit vague this, but the bloke who used to introduce the acts on The Good Old Days was a Wednesday fan and once appeared as the Wednesday guest supporter on a football quiz show.

Can't remember his name or the name of the quiz show.
