Enid Blyton never had a good word to say about Sheffield Wednesday.

 

I dunno..... she did write a book called 

" lets go to the circus"

Truth is that these days ANY article that's put up about Wednesday whether it be from Staton, Howson, Newsome, Biggs, Star, Nationals etc are immediately dismissed and the journalist personally attacked

 

So so incorrect

 

It's possible to attend the club's official press gatherings and then produce an interesting and informative piece afterwards

Angela Galvin does so every week

 

And if you're after a more 'neutral' perspective then the Yorkshire Post is worth checking out too

 

The 'articles' served up by The Star are generally depressing and poorly written by comparison

Why is that?

I don’t usually buy the ‘he is anti Wednesday’ claims but this is unnecessarily negative. We are hardly the first to have a low attendance for a televised cup tie.

 

Wouldn’t necessarily want it that way but James Shield would be writing about how it makes United bigger than Juventus. 

 

Howson would be be better using his time investigating the causes of our injuries.

Bit harsh dude!
 

He's only added an "s" to their name!

 

 

Highlights his lack of football knowledge. Never been a football journalist. Needs sacking.

Of course, he could boost the crowd and finances by buying a ticket.

 

I thought 20,000 was pretty good considering tv , we are crap, etc.

 

Interesting to compare to similar games, ie Championship mid- table team v poor EPL outfit.

There was a discussion on here about tickets and attendance at the game. The general consensus is that Swansea are not an exciting team even with CC returning. Get over it. Personally though 18,500 Weds fans turning out for the game wasn't too bad.

I said when the prices were announced we wouldn't get 20,000.

 

Cheap tickets don't increase the attendance, only league position will do that!

Saturday’s FA Cup fifth round encounter with Swansea City failed to capture the imagination of the Sheffield public. Thousands of Wednesday’s season ticket holders stayed away from S6. Only 19,427 spectators turned up.

It's just click bait really.

I’ve been going to Hillsborough long enough to know if it’s a good crowd or a sh it one. Never even crossed my mind that it was poor. 

Howson, Shield and Biggs 

 

lol

 

The only one I enjoy reading/following is Chris Holt.

He's an absolute wet wipe, isn't he? Was same with the other guy (Liam?) who instead of praising DC for freezing S/T prices & making quid a game for kids, decided to go with the headline of 'no refunds this time round'. 

 

I hope Jos stirs Dooms tea with his knob before the next presser.

Dom Howson is a Huddersfield fan how he feels he has the right to take digs at us is pure lunacy.

 

I know most journalist get their share of criticism but Dom Howson is just awful and no one can tell me otherwise.

Such a negative fanny, then again it seems to be the norm for both the Star and Radio Sheffield lately.

My grandma used to tell me " if you've got nothing nice to say, dont say anything".

Agree with your Grandma but I'd have nothing to read on here if we all followed that advice.

I bet most of the 20,000 were season ticket holders

just love the tired old cliches such as

''Wednesday’s expensively assembled team should still be performing far better than they currently are''

surley he realises that Wednesday’s expensively assembled team are all injured and that the teams put out under Jos have been kids from the academy and free transfers or bargain binners (other than Reach & Joao)
