  1. Well, as always, if anyone ever finds a beer that is similar to Wards, let us all know!
  2. Well, we all know how real estate values can change, eh?
  3. I think that the price of all the assets was set, as of July this year. I am sure that is in the (incredibly long!) summing up of Judge Fancourt's decision. It was probably the fairest way to rule on this. McCabe has to sell for the price he triggered the sale at, but also gets to sell the ground, academy, etc., for market rate as of July 2019. The Prince gets to buy the club at a low price (McCabe triggered that price point) but has to buy the assets rather than rent them. In the long run, McCabe gets to retire and become just a supporter of the club, The Prince has a Premier League club, which he has always wanted.
  4. Got to be a lot more clinical in front of goal, we should have won that game 3 -1 . Saints players get top marks for diving though, thought the ref had a shocker, how that handball in the box wasn't a penalty I will never know.
  5. I remember someone on here (years ago) saying the closest drink to Wards, these days, is Banks Best Bitter from the West Midlands. I remember about 10 years ago, a "Wards Best Bitter" being on hand pull at the Sheaf Island, bottom of Eccy Road, it wasn't real Wards, of course, it would have been the Vaux version (I think Jennings Brewery in Cumbria had the rights to make a bottled version), a decent pint, but nothing like Wards. The old head brewer wrote to The Star years ago, when the Vaux version started appearing, explaining why you can be the best brewer in the world, follow the exact recipe, and it won't taste like Wards. The high sulphur content in the water that was used to make Wards is what gave it that terrible smell when it was off!, but also added to the flavour when it was well kept.
  6. "...The main drawback in our marketing is that whe·n we commenced marketing, the building was very tired and the upper floor flat had been stripped out. Since then, there have been at least four break-ins where substantial damage has been caused and we are now in the position that any ingoing tenant would need to completely re-fit the interior of the premises, both upstairs and down, not to mention spend a considerable sum on the structure...." The upper floor flat has been stripped out?, for what reason? Four break ins?, well no doubt there will be records with a local police station, complete with incident numbers, etc., unless they mean when Spacepad work men ripped out the nice old marble fire places, in broad daylight?
  7. It's almost as if Chancer has been reading Sheffield Forum! Well, you got that right pal.
  8. Good result and a great second half performance. I think a few Premier League managers will slowly be waking up to the fact that the fixtures against SUFC won't be easy matches. Mousset is a real handful and such pace for a big lad, he will cause problems for defenders in coming matches. Enjoying the ride so far.
  9. Ha ha nice one Webbo, you never know, but your 20 year exile from the top flight might soon be over?, then again, probably not. There's really only one team in Sheffield, and they don;t play at that embarrassing rust bucket in S6. Enjoy your expensive ticket prices pal!
  10. You don't go up in second spot (with that only being decided on the final day of the season, we could still have taken top spot) because of "luck" Webbo. And when did we ever play "lump it long, hit and hope" since Chris Wilder arrived? We had a great first season back in the Championship, and an even better one in the second. We had the most clean sheets and also scored more goals than just about anyone else in the league. Billy Sharp was our top scorer, 20+ goals, never going to be the tallest player on the pitch, and certainly not one that you "lump" it to. As for "Wilder will get found out", you can't be serious, a manager who has had nothing but success since he was managing in the Meadowhall Sunday League, right the way through to the Premiership, a manager who has never been sacked, pretty rare in the EPL/EFL. We have brought top flight football back to Sheffield after 12 long years, surely that is a good thing. And if our "bubble" bursts, well that's life, we just take a deep breath, pick up the parachute payments, and go again. Sour grapes aren't your usual style, so I will assume that the excessive amount of rain we are having, is making you fed up!
  11. Get the ball to Billy Sharp, in and around the box, only one result. Thought we created some great chances. I think we will see different line ups for the next half dozen games, while CW and AK decide on which combinations work best. It's been 12 long years, but we are back.
  12. talking of which, did you see that True North (local brewery that own The Broadfield, The York, etc.) have bought The Punchbowl, Hotty? Could make a nice little beer run, Punchbowl, Two Sheds, Ball, Grindstone?
  13. As a Blade, I would love Chris Coleman to be the next SWFC manager. But if I was a neutral, I would say Gary Rowett or Garry Monk, both had a dip in managerial form last season, with their respective clubs, but I think both would have a chance of getting the best out of the players currently employed by SWFC. After saying that, I think Bullen is a safe pair of hands for however long it takes.
  14. Yes, a very decent source, Kyle himself.......
