New home shirt

Recommended Posts

 

 

I'll take your word for it.  

 

Well that's what the skipper of the rugger first team told me at school.

Horrible   August 1972 was one of the best days of my footy life.

 

Peter Swan led us out on a sunny Hillsboro day to beat Fulham 3-0 in stripes, after 6 years of the Ipswich kit of blue shirts and white sleeves.   

 

Just hope no-one buys it.... but I bet they do.

 

It not only reminds me of Ipswich - but of Millwall, which is even worse.

To be honest....I'm split between the dread of the association of next year's kit and my dislike of this year's lower league style Gillingham kit

Got my first ever Wednesday shirt for my 9th birthday in 1968 so I have no problem with the new shirt. Still prefer the proper stripes though.

Lets make the Fulham game a crowd in stripes day and then all move on to pastures new and all blue.

Doesn't say Wednesday at all to me. Alas , another season sat wondering which team I'm watching.

Retro striped shirt again for me this year.

Surely you must know that the big push away from stripes is down to DC not liking stripes.  

 

That simple.

 

I get that.

 

I don't understand why he's so adamant about moving from them

Me either...but clearly the man feels the same about stripes as I do about people wearing socks with sandals.

Because he's a chuffing rich Sh1tars3. He can so he does.

If you dislike something so much you get rid of it if it's within your power.

No, I don't but if you dislike something so much you get rid of it if it's within your power.

Ultimately he doesn't think it's of any importance I guess. He isn't a Wednesday fan.  There is no emotional attachment to our history.

 

If a bigger club like Newcastle were affordable he'd probably jump ship to them without batting an eyelid.  Maybe it could be his mission to eradicate stripes from the English game completely. 

 

Don't expect Adidas to be making our kit anytime soon.

How do know all this?  Has he told you?

Part of my comment is tongue in cheek and part he's a businessman from Thailand with no prior apparent interest in football or Sheffield. 

 

If he had substantial affection for our traditions I don't think we would be playing in the kit we are at the moment simply because he doesn't like stripes. 

 

He's not in this for his long term love of Sheffield Wednesday - in my very very very humble opinion of course.  

 

You can believe what you believe or hope what you hope and back his every move because you think he's right or because he can do whatever he likes because of his investment. I happen to be very wary of how this will all pan out long term. I thought Dave Richards was the bees knees when we qualified for Europe and signed players in the England squad. We know how that turned out - so forgive me if I don't hero worship a chairman who so far has achieved considerably less than Richards did in the early part of his reign. 

 

I'm not calling for him to leave I am just not going to automatically back him or think the sun shines out of his jacksie because he, or his father I don't know the ins and outs of his history, has made a bit of brass.

In fact I think I said I guess which rather implies I don't know it.

 

lol

difficult to find a suitable analogy for a football club -although it's comparable to some (and myself as an atheist) as a sort of church

as such it has always been important to me that it isn't disrespected

so I see DC as the owner of the church but he most certainly doesn't own or control the followers of the religion

when / if he sells up we'll still be here ( well I might be 6' under ) to pick up any pieces
