  1. It will get past Birmingham. In fact it wouldn't surprise me if they by pass Brum in order to make sure it reaches the government's 'pet' city - Manchester. They will move heaven and earth to make sure the line reaches Manchester. To many in governement the Northern Powerhouse is actually seeing Manchester getting all the investment.
  2. I know of a space that you may be interested in. It's about 20 miles from Sheffield.
  3. I was talking to a Wednesdayite last week and we both agreed (there's a first) that neither of us could understand why the really big money boys haven't come in and invested heavily into one if not both Sheffield clubs. I started going to the Lane in 1963 and the only real trophy coming back to the city was in 1991 - the Rumbelows Cup. It's a very poor return. Both sets of supporters deserve so much more.
  4. I went to Port Vale a few years ago for a Friday night match to see the Blades. Even though we are now in the 21st century the experience was like re-visiting the 1970's. The place and the people have not moved on.
  5. Anyone else coming? Maybe the milkman.
  6. Not a chance. He loves the Blades.
  7. If Wednesday had sold 11 shirts at Chansiri prices then they would have their wages paid in no time.
  8. That's 4 players in the England squad that are products of our academy that's a ramshackle of a former WMC. Just think what we could produce if we had the right infrastructure. Well done Blades. Doing Sheffield proud.
  9. Drive around Sheffield and there are far more Blades car stickers on vehicles than those of our poorer neighbbours over in S6.
  10. I realise that this is not relevant to his time at the White Swan but my mother remembers Edwin Brocklehurst growing up on Summerfield Street. She remembers him being in the sea cadets.
  11. The White Swan was a Whitbread pub. In the 1960's / 1970's their main beers were Whitbread Trophy and Whitbread Tankard. About this time Whitbread ran a TV advertising campaign and used the White Swan for the film location. They may have used actors but if your relation was tennant at the time he may have made an appearance.
