  1. I agree, I think people read too much into it and start trying to say one represents a different class group. Both been teams followed by working class people from the city of steel Have to disagree, there's nothing about United that makes them more "working class", I've never understood it, unless someone can provide some evidence to these claims rather than just assuming lol. Look at some Wednesday strongholds in Parson Cross, Hillsborough etc, and the fact they were formed by self employed steel workers
  2. Interesting, not sure the Green Un really reflected the demographics of supporters at the time though, plenty of pictures from the early days at Hillsborough gives you all you need to know about the type of people who attended football in the late 19th/early 20th century. Flat caps, upon flat caps, upon flat caps on the Hillsborough Kop. I would suggest it was nothing more than journalistic mischief, artistic license maybe
  3. Traditionally geographical, anywhere north/ north west of the city centre will be Wednesday, anywhere south/south east of the city centre will be United. Parson Cross, Hillsborough, High Green, Firth Park, Wadsley Bridge, Upperthorpe, Stannington all strong Wednesday areas. Manor, Arbouthorne, Woodseats, Gleadless, Dore + Totley, Sharrow, Ranmoor mostly United. However, you'll find loyal contingents to both clubs in almost every district. I'm aware of a Manor Park + Arbouthorne Wednesday supporters group, including myself!
