Aaaaargh.....Roger Wylde. One of my pet hates....

 

And are you sure the guy's name was Geoff Eggerton....and not Geoff Eggington?

 

You would not believe the amount of time spent checking and rechecking the text. Someone told me that despite all that,  there's bound to be something.

 

First thing I see when I get the book is Roger/Rodger. He is in there as both and gawd knows how I missed it :(  They'll be a second print soon with it corrected. 

 

I'll check Eggerton/Eggington later also 

 

There's a prize for spotting the two other errors I've found as well*

 

* The respect of all on Owlstalk :)

I did also spot Willie with a "y"....perhaps, given his friendship with Lulu, that was intended?

 

But have to say that having started this it is a real memory jerker. I almost miss those times!

This is all of our league games between the turn of 1975 and the end of that season...

And every single older fan tells you he was there at every game throughout it

Look at the attendances...

I think we know what's what..


Next they'll be telling us they lived up High Green with the Arctic Monkeys

I'd love to know how many of that 7444 were still in for Brian Joicey's goal Vs Oxford!

Ah really? You didn't have to do that mate - I'd have supported you regardless. Thank you for writing it. I'll learn loads I'm sure

I was at 10 of them including the York & Forest away games. Missed the Oxford game (Wargaming championship) and consequently our only goal at home in the 2nd half of the season!

 

Gutted!

I hope everyone who has a copy is enjoying it! I've had some great feedback so far which again has left me slightly humbled. If anyone else wants one before they go on Amazon etc, I have a handful of copies left at: https://ourlowestebb.bigcartel.com/product/our-lowest-ebb-a-new-history-of-sheffield-wednesday-s-darkest-times-1973-76 which I'll happily sign/dedicate and send out straight away. Cheers and UTO, John
