As the link suggests we were on the pitch a waiting the Chelsea result to find out if we had won the league title! 
By the way it’s the only time I’d seen barbed wire at a football ground..... not that it did any good as the wires below were ripped out ! 😂😂

"Wednesday were just happy to Party"

After 14 years away no wonder.

One can only imagine the Party when we next gain Promotion to the top flight!!

Reminds me of the Play Off final in Cardiff, think that still remains the highest amount of fans other than international fans at a match there? That was a memorable day for me as I live in South Wales and made a whole day of it. Like the Wembley Play Off final it was good natured and a brilliant atmosphere.

Was this the game where some fans paraded a pigs head on a silver platter with a red and white scarf wrapped around it ?

 

Not sure about the silver platter but I can certainly remember the pigs head & the scarf.

I don’t remember it as peaceful as that lot make out. Seem to recall running battles along the stand during the game.

Yup, and the Cardiff fans throwing bricks into our uncovered end, we had hitched down on the Friday night, and got a lift back on a coach on the Saturday late on, wouldn't have wanted to spend the rest of Saturday night in |Cardiff

My favourite season 83 84.

Yes, was a good weekend that, 15 at the time. Went down Friday camped near Ross and ended up in Cardiff at 7am. Plenty of Wednesday and s warm sunny day. Don't remember all the locals being friendly, plenty not happy we were on the pitch.

As others have said, we were on the pitch waiting for the Chelsea result think they were at Shrewsbury? Rumour was they had lost but sadly they hadn't. TBH didn't matter I was going to see us in Div 1 for the first time. Happy days.

We were in the car park as the Chelsea result came through. All the news was they’d lost. I think they actually won 5-0 so it was close.

It’s not many years since, broken glass was set in concrete, on top of walls surrounding football grounds. Barnsley still had some last time I was there.

Got the coach down from Stocksbridge, was 11 at the time, our coach had a mix of kids, adults, random lads, remember we were all about to walk in a pub near the ground when the window got put through from the inside and there was a small ish mob of Wednesday and Cardiff fans belting the hell out each other, none of this arms outstretched Danny Dyer-esque bouncing on the spot stuff!

 

Also remember the running battles in the Grandstand.   Rumour went round that Chelsea had drawn and it went like a wave, limbs everywhere, that prompted the fence to get ripped down and the pitch invasion, then on came the police dogs!!   Remember being gutted when the Grimsby/Chelsea result was made official.

 

The pigs head! 😄

 

Good days, back in the big time!

I didn't go, so disappointed that we had blown the championship in the penultimate two games against Shrewsbury and Man City.

Shrewsbury was the one that did us. Really should have won.

The fancy dress of the policeman was funny.

Went on pitch, rumour that Chelsea had lost at Grimsby was circulating, but turned out to be false.

Went on the train, and set off back to the station. Saw a Wednesdayite with blood on hIs face, he told us not to go up there as they were throwing bricks.

 

Spent the next ten minutes trying to cadge a lift on any coach to Newport to no avail. Then a passing taxi came to our rescue. Drove us back to the station, past a large mob of home supporters. 
 

Great day out though.
