I don't honestly think I've ever said Sheffield Wednesday when asked who I support ....

I always say 

"I'm a Wednesdayite"....

In conversation 

Or "I'm off to see Wednesday"

For example ....

 

 

This ^^

I follow Wednesday - always have, plain and simple

Might occasionally call myself an Owl, but Wednesdayite is the word that slips out naturally

 

In fact, I'll get pretty irate when pundits refer to us as 'Sheffield'   

But worse than that are idiots like Giddings who say 'Sheffull'  WTF  :angry:

Nonsense.

 

Aston Villa doesn’t have Birmingham in it.

 

Everton doesn’t have Liverpool in it.

 

Juventus doesn’t have Turin in it

 

etc etc etc

Villa fair enough as they're the best club in the city, but Liverpool is the biggest club in the city AND directly associated with the city through name.

 

Those who don't know football well are much more likely to associate the city with Liverpool FC rather than Everton by name alone so I think it does matter from an outside perspective (not that everyone will care about that).

I prefer The Wednesday

 

Sitting on the Cantilever, it winds me up a bit when I look up at the clock and see the name Sheffield Wednesday

 

The old frontage with just The Wednesday on it looked much better

 

And I don't like sharing anything with the Blunts

A lot of Everton fans are gutted that they wer formed first and went for st domingos or summat instead of using the city’s name..also I note you didn’t mention  Inter Milano in your examples who have recently changed from Internationale to include their city’s name...may I suggest your talkin nonsense

Except the biggest team in Liverpool plays in red whereas the biggest team in Sheffield plays in blue... important differentiation 😉

 ... plus, there's never any need to elaborate either

 

Everybody knows who Wednesday are   :rolleyes:

Not over here they bloody well don't! Only way I can get them to recognise us is t bring up the Ted Lasso reference!

 

Anyway even on that show when asked who we are playing on Saturday, he gets the answer "Wednesday" not "Sheffield Wednesday"!

Back in the 70s there was a news reader on , I think, ITV who when reading out the midweek scores always called us The Wednesday.

When I asked my Dad why, he said "because that's their proper name".

I still prefer it even though it was usually The Wednesday nil 😕.

I'm the same except when I tell people who are not football fans. Then I say Sheffield Wednesday. Probably because it gives the location.
