Some of the old owls used to talk about this game in the pub and the previous round against Roma. Think we'll be the only team in Sheffield football to play Barca in a competitive game and actually beat them. Crowd was 28000+. Robin Hardy is the only one I've never heard of.

Worked with robin for years was my uncles best mate, that bloke could certainly tell a story kept us entertained for hours at a time with tales of his Wednesday days including both games against barca

I hadn't heard of him either but he sounds like a hero.

We always called it 5-3-3 at school ( goalie counted)

Don't know why our football coach got onto formations cos every team we ever played we and the oppos played it.

Before every game he would say..we will line up 5-3-3 and see how it goes...never changed never altered. lol

Wonder how much £ Swan had riding on us to lose the game? 

 

Only 28,956 people there for that match!  Terrible attendance.

That’s quite a low turnout. Was it a League Cup game?
