Bronco for me......No-one has equalled that power or expectancy when he got the ball.......David Hirst came closest of course but to an impressionable youngster, Bronco...then it all went sour!

Andy Blair for me, used to have his picture on one of those pendant thingies. Also remember seeing him scoring at Goodison Park  and the hatrick of penalties.

Roger Wylde because he actually scored goals.When I started going,no one could score so this was a bit of a novelty!!

Has to be Chrissy Waddle. I could watch him play all day. That day he gave the West Ham left back a going over was one of the best performances I've ever seen (forget the lads name). Best player I've seen for Wednesday

Not meaning to be pedantic but wasn't it the reverse fixture he scored in at the Stain?

Yes and what a cracker it was and the game was on Match Of The Day in the Evening.

Rodger Wylde LEGEND

 

I thought I was going to be alone in my choice of Roger Wylde but a few have chosen him.  My second favouite at that time was Eric Potts.  My mate and I used to take turns at being Roger Wylde when we used to have a kick around when we were chabbies.  Whoever wasn't Roger Wylde was Eric Potts.  We used to tear new arses in the invisible United defenders we played against scoring twenty goals each and setting up (we didn't call them assists back then) each other for every goal whilst breaking the world record for number of goals score in a game.  We did our own team talk, crowd noises and commentary and everything.

When you first started going to Sheffield Wednesday games there tended to be one or two players that stood out and became your first SWFC heroes.

It might not have been the most skilful or popular player but it doesn't matter as younger opinions on players tend to be based on other things rather than just pure skill (look at Chris "Bartman" Bart-Williams for example - most popular with the young uns but was slow and rubbish)

Who was yours ?

when i first started going to game we had no hero's...

nobody could accuse me of watchin' wednesday 'cos i was a pot hunter...
