God if you let us down Chris I don’t know what other players have done to use . Chris you were an absolute joy to watch I would walk a thousand miles over broken glass so my kids could watch you play one game and see what a real football player is

The season he won player of the year was the best individual season I've ever seen from an Owls player, immense. His performance against West Ham, he semi final goal (and performance) against pigs and many other great moments, I always remember him in a Sheffield derby at Hillsborough not long after Wembley and United kicked lumps out of him, he got subbed by Francis and as he left the field he gave a thumbs to the Owls fans and 2-1 signal with his fingers to the pigs, pure class

As incredible as he was I agree with what he is saying. Many times he laid it off simple when we were all thinking go on have a dribble

The best player I have seen in a Wednesday shirt by a country mile. Only disapointment was we never won a trophy while he was here. The memories though will live forever.

Remember when we signed him I thought, ok we've got a well known player who other teams have been after so that shows we can now compete with the big boys, but I genuinely wasn't that excited, he was over 30 and although i thought he'd been a decent player not that Special.

How wrong was I? Until you've actually seen him for yourself playing for your team on a regular basis you really don't realise how good a player he was.

Plenty of Great memories including that Goal at Wembley, but I doubt I will ever see anything like that Performance against West Ham, everything he did came off, almost The perfect solo performance, granted he had other good players around him to make it look easier, but he was absolutely unplayable.

I don't think you will find many (if any) Wednesday fans who were around at the time who he left Disappointed.

Thanks for the Memories Chris (Aka God).

 

Fantastic post.

Couldn't agree more.

 

That game against West Ham is the best individual performance by a footballer I have ever witnessed.

Yes Lada's were class 😂

Seriously I got dragged along to Tottenham by my dad in the mid to late 80's 

Mr Waddle was and is the best player I have ever seen consistently and it was a like a surreal dream when he came to us.

We have had a few world class players at Wednesday, Chris Waddle was one, technically excellent, what a player.

 

Beat me to it, mate!

 

Use of the phrase "world class Wednesday players", a title that befits two players only - Chris Waddle and Roland Nilsson.

... incidentally, does anyone remember when Newcastle got beat 4-2 at Hillsborough (wearing that dreadful all grey kit) and their midfield was something like Waddle, Gascoigne, McDermott and Keegan?

Greatest things about being a Wednesday fan

 

1) standing on a packed kop

 

2) seeing Chris Waddle play for us

 

3) seeing John Sheridan play for us and score for us at the old Wembley

 

4) seeing David Hirst play for us

 

5) Apologies for not mentioning many of the other great players I've watched over the years

 

6) Seeing us win and lift a trophy at the old Wembley

I'd play him in our current starting 11 at the age of 59 if he made himself available

We beat them 4-2 twice in a couple of years, but Gazza didn't play in any of them. They had Waddle and Beardsley in both games though, but McDermott and Keegan had moved on at the end of the 83/84 promotion season - when we beat them 4-2 in the top division in 1985 they had Tony Cunningham and George Reilly up front!
