Section 5 though…







Venue: Hillsborough Stadium, Sheffield
Kick Off: Saturday the 5th of March at 15:00


Matchday Apparel: Three home shirts. Going to be cold today.


Matchday Pie: Owls will get a tasty selection of the finest Pukkas. Deep fried toenail clippings and scraps for fans of the Rotherham. 


Matchday Drink: Sixteen pints of beer. Again. Probobobobobobobobarbly.


Matchday Song: Everybody Dance by Chic…






Sheffield Wednesday will be without suspended forward Fernando Forestieri for their home game against South Yorkshire rivals the Rotherham. Forestieri was sent off by the corrupt, Brighton based referee after receiving two yellow cards in last Friday's goalless draw at Hull and will serve a two-game ban for his second dismissal in seven days. The Owls next game is at Brighton.


Head coach Carlos Carvalhal will otherwise choose from an almost full-strength squad with only goalkeeper Joe Wildsmith not in contention. Striker Atdhe Nuhiu, winger Ross Wallace, plus midfielders Alex Lopez and Lewis McGugan are among those pushing for recalls as the Owls chase their first league win in four matches.


Rotherham boss Colin Wankle has no new injury or suspension worries as his side chases back-to-back league wins in their fight against relegation. Midfielder Lee Frecklington made his first appearance in over two months against Brentford after suffering a cheeky boot to the knackers. Forward Danny Ward has returned after an unfortunate incident where a knife brandishing pimp leapt out of his date’s wardrobe and stole his wallet and trousers. Both players are expected to feature at Hillsborough.


Defender Lloyd Doyley is working his way back from a prison sentence that has restricted him to one appearance since arriving last month and will be monitored. Former Leeds striker Luciano Becchio is struggling for match fitness after trying to stick his finger in the throat of a sheep at a petting zoo and getting it bitten off.

â–ª The Owls are winless in their last four home league meetings with the Millers, last tasting victory at Hillsborough in September 1981.


â–ª Rotherham have lost their last two games against Wednesday and have not lost three in a row since a run of eight between 1977 and 1981.


â–ª Wednesday are unbeaten in 14 home league games - the club's longest league run since May 1997 (16 games unbeaten).


â–ª Rotherham have lost seven of the last eight league away matches (D1), conceding two or more on six occasions.


â–ª The Millers have conceded the first goal on more occasions this season than any other team (21), losing 19 and drawing two of those matches.


â–ª Gary Hooper has scored or assisted eight goals in his last six league games at Hillsborough (five goals, three assists).





My prediction: A tonking for Toytown. 7 - 0 for us. Nuhiu to get all 23. Oooooooh!





“It will be another local derby which is all the time interesting, the emotions run more high in these kind of games. It will be two teams in different circumstances, one team is fighting to not be relegated and another team is in the good position in this moment. In the derby, it is a different environment. It is 90 minutes where we are sure we must fight and run a lot and play good football to beat the Rotherham.




We are sure the environment will be with us. We are at home and because of the way we played in last game with quality, I felt we operated more like a team and we expect to see this upgraded in the next match. They are better now with the new coach but at the same time, we are playing at home and we are sure everybody can do their best to feel the power of Hillsborough.”

Evening gents and ladies.


Brilliant work Pauli.   :laugh:  :laugh:


Toytown won't know what will have hit them. Wednesday will run riot and there's no better game to do it.  4-0 to Wednesday.  Hooper, Nuhiu, Joao and Wallace the scorers.

Hello again all you crazy Wednesday Fans. I was so upset how the game ended last Friday Lunch what with Fernando getting The Donald Trump treatment from the horrible man running the game. Anyway, Sarah enjoyed the game but can't join us tomorrow.

Had an exciting time this week...A date. Alexander Vauthier asked me to expo one of his latest designs at the Oscars, that's it in the photo, Hope you all like it. Don't worry guys it is boob accident proofed.

Anyway we then came over to Paris for a final fitting and I leave Orley for Doncaster at 10a.m. I asked Alex if he fancied coming along but he doesn't like rough sports; The game on Tuesday may have suited him

more. Sarah, is hoping to come over for the Charlton game which will be her first Hillsborough visit.

Love the name you all give to Rotherham ... Toytown lol

Anyway I'm thinking we will win and win Big tomorrow Come on Wednesday WAWAW Love Taylor x x x

Great stuff again Pauli

This thread. Theodor Seuss Geisel.

...we will win. That is all.

lol at the head to head pic of Colin. Scary accurate that is.

Oh and didn't Dr Suess write a book about the Giant Shadow Llama? Or was that Roald Dahl?

Edit - No come to think of it I'm pretty sure Dahl wrote Tay Tay and the giant Grammy.

Roald Dahl was a coward. He was actually called Ronald but had an irrational fear of the letter "n".

Dr Suess on the other hand, was a childhood hero of mine.
