On This Day in 1929 : Sheffield Wednesday 7 Man Utd 2


Recommended Posts

Now that must have been a very fine day to be a Wednesday supporter - nice to see the First Lord of the Admiralty cheering on the lads! The Owls were 2nd in Division 1 and the  rain effected attendance was a mere 14,246 - not so hardy in 1929 ;-) .  Goals Allen 4, Rimmer 2 & Hooper 1.

what a great side that must have been , to win the league by 10 points is some achievement and  its not inconceivable to think that they could have been the best club side in the world.at that time .......

Equivalent of 15 points in today's terms just to put it in proper perspective!

My old man always got on about those sides in the late '20s early 30's.

 

BUT, for younger fans :- 

FA Cup 4th Round  Jan 28, 1962 Man Utd 1 Sheff Wed 1      Attend. 58,000

             4th Replay Feb 1st 1962 Sheff Wed 7 (Seven) Man.Utd 2  Attend. 65,000.

 

the records say Home and Away, I thought it was the other way around  No matter, I can say to both I WAS THERE.

Incidentally, same season , Spurs won the league with 66 points, second came Wednesday with 58 equivalent to 81 points from 22 games.

Used to go with 3 uncles who harked back , all the time...

You would say..."Bannister tho"..They would go "PFhhhhhhhhhhh Bannister....then roll off a litany of players you had never heard of....I learned to say "Fantham tho"...had some middle ground there..might get an "Aye..not so bad was Fantham.,.but he was no Dooley/Rimmer/whoeverthefook

Fantastic article.

Remember like it was yesterday going with my dad to Wednesday v Man U 31 August 1968 which we won 5-4. Jack Whitman got a hat trick, John Ritchie, got one and Nobby Stiles scored an own goal. United scorers were Best Law(2) & Charlton. Attendence 50,490.

Halcyon days!!

...UP THE OWLS

Cheers mate, I'm surprised by that, thought it was 58/59

 

We were 2nd division champions in 1958-9.   We did beat Lincoln 7-0 that season, Grimsby 6-0, Sunderland 6-0, Barnsley 5-0, Rotherham 5-0.  So you could say it was a decent season.

I was born October 58, I like to think Wednesday did it for me
