  1. Brought us back from our darkest hours was loved by so many at S6 and all the clubs he represented. R.I.P B ig Jack.
  2. Whatever we post on this thread is pure speculation. Let's just wait for the clubs statement. Then we can voice our opinions.
  3. I watched Borokuv at both U 18/19 and U23,s and always put in a shift, scored a few goals and was always a handful for defenders so it came as a surprise to see him on the released list,especially as he had been called up for Bulgaria. Odd.
  4. In my opinion the ball is now in all clubs courts. Players can either sign a contract on what a club is able to offer them or they can take a chance of joining another club. If that fails they can join the queue with the other fourteen hundred who i am led to believe will no longer have a club. Owls 1-1 WBA
  5. Hi SP , I wasn,t saying what was the lineup against MU, Kieth Ellis scored hat trick in the 7-2 victory with Fanthan and Finney getting two each.. i was naming the team who i thought was best.
  6. If what i have heard is true, that the P&S is going to be suspended for next season .Then the EFL have brought the case forward so that the case can be heard so that a verdict can be given this season. I feel we are going to get a fine and a suspended sentence and put on the naughty step and i,ll take that. If that is the outcome then. the hiring of a top QC will have more than paid for itself. We live in hope.
  7. How many more changes to the game are they going to make before they drive the fans away. I am certainly nearing the end of my tether.
  8. This could cost the club millions. Sorry Hawkeye your apology is not good enough, where was your backup, is what I would be asking them and taking it from there. Blades you were robbed.
  9. Good to hear from you Corks, stay safe.
  10. Not a cat in hells chance, of a play off place. If by any chance they do then the twelfth man will get them promoted.
  11. I dont intend to get into a debate on the ethics of a professional footballer making a donation to our present situation . One thing for sure is at this present time our frontline nursing staff and everyone involved in getting the Coronavirus under control are worth a lot more than someone kicking a bag of wind around a football field. Ask anyone involved in the game and i am sure they will agree. I rest my case.
  12. A well written and informative piece Derby. Lets hope when we get back to some form of normality, that DC does see his mistakes and we move on as a club in the positive way as we as fans want SWFC to be.
  13. Cheap shot by BBC , let them stick to leeds " with a small l "
  14. One thing is for sure the next time I see the Owls I feel it will be a completely different team /management set up whether that includes Gary Monk only DC knows.
  15. Correct SP, certainly don't happen these days. Swanny never got a goal for us, but stopped his share.
  16. That day for West Ham, Noel Dwyer was stand in goalkeeper for Scotland international Laurie Leslie. Owls scorers were Fantham 2, Finney, 2 Wilkinson, Craig , Ellis. The result as SP says knocked West Ham off top spot into third while the Owls moved up to second behind Spurs. Good times.
  17. The players which I selected I had seen them play many times and imo worthy of a place in the line up. There is no doubt if I had seen Dooley, Hagan and Jefferies they would have been considered for selection. Not easy being a manager is it.
  18. My team would look like this having all represented their country but not for our local clubs at the time. In a 2-3-5 formation Ron Springett Mel Sterland Graham Shaw Des Walker Peter Swan Emlyn Hughes John Sheridan Tony Currie Jimmy Johnstone David Hirst Chris Waddle
  19. Ron Springett signed in March 1958 , my first game was 7 th April and i am certain Mike Pinner played in goal losing 2-1 against Burnley . so it would have been one of Ron,s first games versus the blades.
  20. Hi Runningman , i can remember the score going up on the leppings lane scoreboard when Billy Russell got the hattrick, and all the talk about the blades playing in Blackpool colours.. Y ou really jogged my memory there.
  21. I can relate to a few of them good times.
  22. I looked at that myself Padders , only time i remember playing more that twice in a cuptie is against the Arsenal
  23. I think the game you are thinking of is in 1988 drew 1-1 at Goodison Park and lost the replay 0-5 someone called Lineker scored four, still don,t like him.
  24. Keep those memories coming red or blue we all have a football story to tell. Best game, best/favourite player who has played for you , best player you have seen, biggest crowd you been in, first derby game you saw. Get those memories out here and let us all enjoy the moment. I could fill the hard drive if i got going.
  25. I remember it very well. That morning every paper was tipping a Man U v Chelsea Final, they got it wrong. IF memory serves me well the other semi was played at Burnden Park. State of the pitch would be questionable today.
