Loved following Wednesday in the late 70s/80s...used to go to away games with the Ball Inn(ecclesfield)/Timbertop (shirecliffe) !!!!!!!!!...Legendary away days ....The raffle prize on the coach was what had been nicked from the pub we’d stopped at on the way down ...Oxford away ...I won a brass shire horse  !!!......Not glorifying the violence but fat sid ..sammy...Tommo .. bathtub where just as popular as the players then !!!!.....Stocksbridge supporters coach use to arrive like Brad Pitts mob in the film Troy..take the home end on its own !!!.....The fans were as one ... never fought amongst themselves like they do now.....”Never mind the testicles ..Here comes the Wednesday “...

Used to go on that coach myself 'The Wino Express'. Was only 14 when i first started going but absolutely loved it. Some great characters.

Violent times, amazing music and friendships made that last to this day!

Prison and divorce were occupational hazards of the life we led.

It’s because of the friendships forged in this era that 20 odd of us meet up at every home game ( more if it’s a birthday) and plan a couple of away weekends per season, usually London.

Fantastic memories from a different time.

Thankfully society has moved on...... or has it?

A nice summary of a lifetime watching Wednesday with your mates. If you've not read 'Wednesday rucks and Rock 'n Roll', which is mainly about the 70s, I recommend it.

I've tried for years to find photos of the Crazy Daisy or even the front doorway but nothing at all.

The Limit is quite limited too apart from a few photos of Human League gigs etc

 

Never would have thought Crazy Daisy would have been the hangout! When it turned into Legends it kept getting stormed by drunk Blades fans for some reason. They liked to come downstairs into the place, jump over the bars and help themselves to beers.
