  1. Yes it is money that dictates the status of the game, has been for a long time now, calling for the season to be stopped or even cancelled has consequences for that very reason, no games = no sponsorship money, no live TV money etc because these things are all contracted in and are generally the only thing preventing the majority of clubs going under because they have no income but are paying their players, staff etc what they are contracted to. Anyone with any great ideas please step forward now, because if you are capable of resolving this issue and then maybe you can do the same with the wider economic damage caused by the virus and lockdown measures !
  2. An update or plug in can corrupt the site, sounds like your site is hosted so running anti virus or malware checks on your own computer is pointless, if your site has been maliciously removed then contacting the provider who you pay to host the site is your first move, if and when it is sorted make sure the site is backed up as Jomie wrote.
  3. Creepy Joe will get the muck raked on him and his policies dissed just as Trump's were, it's tit for tat now in politics and the media the world over, is there some common ground you can find that is suddenly going to change that ? It's the same here in the UK the opposites push each other further apart, but one side aided by the MSM and big tech wants to silence the other more !
  4. 4 people died, one of them a woman who was shot dead, but you won't see any outrage about that, what you see in the MSM is clearly deluding you, do you visit the US much or just an armchair expert ?
  5. Only turn up to see the blades lol Twenty years outside the top flight and Wednesday only twice dropped below the 20,000 average mark, in that same twenty years despite being in the Premier League twice, United averaged under 20,000 nine times, we won't even mention the previous twenty years because it's even worse and of course the banter is only valid if it's here and now, give me strength, dem 30,000 Blades !
  6. Brilliant, the definitive "my dads bigger than yours" response, your giving yourself away too easily lol Your still not willing to acknowledge the historical fact that Wednesday statistically have been the better supported team since records began, but but are happy to emphasise the point that United have had 30, 000 averages 3 times since Wednesday last have, because it makes you feel better, it's OK I get it, no need to be mardy, it's only banter fella 🤣 Who knows maybe in twenty years time if we are still around (and there is no guarantee) but you might then be able to say that United are the most successful and best supported club this city has ever seen, not that it means that much in the wider context of football and success generally, so hey enjoy your moment ! Oh BTW Wednesday had 38,000 just to watch Wycombe back in 2012 by your logic, we also gave you a reduced amount of tickets because we can sell them to our own part time supporters, we have them too just like United
  7. You keep backing up my point though, I think you are bothered about the 'my dads bigger than yours stuff, it seems blatantly evident in your reply ! I posted fact too: Quote = Re, the 'bigger' attendances /better support argument, comparably over the years in terms of numbers and more consistently ... there's only one winner ... Wednesday, home and away ! (I backed the home attendance averages up with links to the statistics) And you keep posting your 30,000 jibe, which many Blades now throw into the banter about support, which typifies the fist rule of banter, when your on top you want to dish it out but when your not you don't, selective banter is easy, lot's of posters do it, but a lot of Blade posters noticeably disappeared off here when Wednesday got promoted back in 2012 and United were stuck in League One for a few more seasons, what your implying is that because your team is better at the moment we should only have banter about the here and now, it seems that just like the support at S2 your not bothered about it unless your top dog Like I said in my earlier post, and my point is it has all been done to death over the years, posters do just come on with the 'my dads bigger than yours stuff', that's exactly what banter is .... at the moment neither side is getting any support and neither side is doing very well which in turn reduces the 'banter'. Which in fact is the point the very first poster in the thread was making.
  8. History does mean something when it comes to banter, because we all argue about it, your post just proves it ! And yes with 'history' up comes the 30,000 average thing as usual, so when both Sheffield clubs were last in the Premier League at the same time, back in the 1990's, (a time which preceded the attendance boom of recent years, and consequently has seen United average 30,000 twice), United's average attendance was lower than Wednesday's. So based on comparable 'history' how many do you think Wednesday could have averaged had they got back in the Premier League in the last 20 years ? United have averaged less than 20,000 far more frequently than Wednesday since the 1960s and once averaged less than 10,000 too, here is the proof and a bit more besides : SUFC average attendance stats SWFC average attendance stats Re, the 'bigger' attendances /better support argument, comparably over the years in terms of numbers and more consistently ... there's only one winner ... Wednesday, home and away ! You forgot to mention the state of the rust bucket compared to the cricket ground and the better Academy, as a Wednesday fan of many many years I can accept we are second to United at the moment but historically that has not always been the case and you should accept it. I have never said we are a big club BTW
  9. Brian is quite a character and well known amongst Sheffield's amateur footballing community, he is also getting on in years, he is just a WUM, there is an old thread about him somewhere on this forum BTW. As for Blades and Owls banter it died a death in it's original form on here quite a few years ago, there is the odd jab thrown now and again but many of the 'hardcore' banter merchants got banned or lost interest eventually, anyway there is only a few things to argue about really and they have all been done to death, take your pick from the subjects of best club, best team, best players, best supporters, best matches and of course barring the last twenty years Wednesday tend to come out on top most frequently 😉 Older club Built their own ground (which was bigger in capacity and much better than the cricket ground for much of it's history) Had historically 'slightly' more (and recent) success trophy wise Played in Europe Generally been the better supported club over the years Need I go on lol
  10. Always a bit of aggro at Barnsley and last season was no different, plenty of coppers but the the fans can not be kept apart very well as they mingle and cross paths going back into the town centre and the train station, there is always a face off and a bit of handbags, I have only seen video footage of the outcome of this incident and not everything leading up to it, but having read reports online it sounds like the lad was involved in an altercation and the copper gave him a crack, I have traditionally backed some of the heavy handed policing in violent situations over the years, however in recent years police 'inactivity' when dealing with some violent protests and aggressive protesters has convinced me of their double standards. Football fans generally have been treated quite badly for many years in comparison, I have seen many incidents at football up and down the country first hand, it seems the copper was out of order in this incident and his actions more comparable with how police deal with rowdy football fans on parts of the continent and not here in the UK.
  11. There is only one thing I find worse than ignorant, and that is ignorance coupled with arrogance, I disagree with Anna B frequently but she was correct in her statement that you highlighted in the quote, and that is what many people vote against, people are not voting for Trump or Johnson etc ... they are voting against the likes of you, people who think everyone should think like them or they are stupid, not educated enough blah blah blah you should listen to yourself fella. I was 30 plus years in the AEU, MSF, Unite unions even been a rep, but I will never vote Labour again in my life, because Labour has been taken over by that very same arrogant ignorance displayed by those very same 'better than you' identity politic riddled 'middle class' attitudes, little wonder that many working class people have turned against it don't you think ?
  12. Correct, Fletcher is a good Championship striker but he was off when he got the chance, Monk needs players willing to fight in a relegation battle because that's what it's going to be, the best striker we have had in recent seasons is now banging them in for Reading, be ironic if he helps to get them promoted this season.
  13. Yeah me too, on both counts, was busier than 'Eccy' Road back in the 80's, great pub crawl, China garden or Golden Tiger at Highfields, Curry Centre, Tiffany's /Locarno even the Royal Oak at the bottom of Cemetery Road behind the Lansdowne was decent, used to get a few United players perched at the bar in there.
  14. Used to visit my grandparents on Foxglove back in the 60's and early 70's, I remember me and one of my brothers used to watch the football on the sports ground across from Concord from an upstairs window, it was that or watch the wrestling on World of Sport after eating chips, scraps and vinegar from the Paragon chippy on Sicey Ave.
