Educate Me On Your Club


Recommended Posts

If your on fm21 sell everyone apart from penny and iorfa

 

In real life we were good 20odd years ago. Way better then the likes of Chelsea and man City.  Been poor pretty much every season since in relative terms. We tend not to have too many mid table obscurity seasons though so it's always fun/tragic being a fan

Sheffield Wednesday is the best team in Sheffield. Sheffield Football Club is the second best team in Sheffield. The third best team is Sheffield Wednesday Reserves. There are no other teams in Sheffield.

When was this? I seem to remember them winning trophies including a European trophy whilst all we could muster was 7th on the odd occasion.

Hi! I am an American Manchester United fan who is simulating your team on FM21 (mainly because I wanted to simulate the Blades' rival since I don't like them very much for personal reasons).
 

I am aware of your financial situation and I am very sorry to hear about it (I hope you guys do well in the near future).

 

Most new foreign fans of Sheffield teams pick the pigs over their recent prem stint (and they refer to them as Sheffield smh) so I am in the minority who pick you guys over your rivals lately it feels like.

 

My first season of FM21, I got the owls to finish 16th in the table (would be 13th without the deduction), and I finished 3rd in the defensive table, which was not easy but I enjoyed simulating with your team a lot. 

 

Please educate me on your team a bit. I sound a bit silly here but I genuinely want to know more about your team. 

We are currently the 2nd oldest club in the league after Nottingham forest. Sheffield is arguably the birth place of modern football as we have the worlds oldest club here (Sheffield FC) and the worlds oldest stadium (HallamFC). 
Sheffield is one of the biggest cities in England but Wednesday have a lot of competition in the area as locally Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham all have league clubs and we have Sheffield United within Sheffield too as you know (compared to say Leeds who are a one club city with little competition nearby)

We are quite well supported locally, and likely have more fans in South Yorkshire than other teams local to us however this is not always reflected in our attendances due to our generally higher pricing and lack of success. 
Due to the size of the city and the prominence of the club we are always hopeful one day we can again become a big club in the PL-but in the past we have often been hindered by bad off field decisions and leadership.

We are traditionally regarded as a big club and would sit in an all time top flight but most success wasn’t in our lifetimes. We are still Yorkshire’s (which is the biggest county in England) most successful side based on honours.

We are utterly obsessed as fans by the size of the club and past history.

Before my time that. Can't imagine we were way better than them even then though tbh.

Early 90s. Chelsea and Man City could only wish they were us.

lol

Oh yeah Man City definitely. Only 20 odd years ago they were in the position we currently find ourselves in. Don't know how good Chelsea were in the early nineties. They were top flight whilst we got relegated though and got to an FA Cup final year after us. Don't think they would've been envious of us apart from the year we finished 3rd maybe.

Before that we had a good rivalry with Chelsea.  It seemed to ebb and flow.  We were always around them.in leagues.   When we went down, they did, when we got promoted, they did.  We had great players, they did, although it could be argued that we had better.

Hi I think @Tony Pulis sums it up pretty well.

I'd disagree on one point, I think when we aren't doing well, that the atmosphere is very flat rather than poisonous although it might depend who sits around you.

Something to consider is that many fans of football in England don't get to choose a club, your usually born into it and once you are you stick with it however well or poorly your club does. It's a trap.

 

Definitely disagree with that. It's both flat and poisonous. Booing players during lineup announcement, booing players mid game, cheering when they get subbed

 

We can be truly awful fans at times

Trying to add some American context to help you understand our club……….

 

Think Donald Trump crossed with Pearl Harbour. That should help.

The Blades are our B team. We moved out of Bramall Lane stadium but our president, Sir Charles Clegg wanted to set up a club to keep the previous stadium a going concern - so he formed Sheffield Utd.

Maybe I am exaggerating it a bit. But not even Chelsea fans would have said they were better than us in the early nineties.
