Who in Sheffields togga folk law will ever forget the wonderful times around 1962 when our Owls created Sheffield togga history by playing in Europe.
They played Lyon in the first round and beat them 7-6 over two legs scoring five of those goals at Owlerton.
Next up was the mighty Roma who our Owls absolutaly pasted 4-0 in front of a full crowd at home ,losing 1-0 away.
That match ended with the Roma crowd and team going on a full blooded riot and our brave lads from Sheffield just managed to escape with their lives intact.
So 4-1 to the local lads from Hillsbro.

Next up was the biggest team in the World Barcelona ,[I helped to clean the snow of the pitch for that one ] We licked them 3-1 with goals from Dobson.Young and my pal John Fantham.

The second leg was in front of 90,000 people at the New Camp stadium in Barcelona [rolls of your tongue dun't it Barcelbleedinona]
Any way we lost 2-0 ,due to a bias referee so that was that,But what proud days for Sheffield it was 50;000 crowds at Owlerton ,plus the World togga community enthrailed by our home grown team .

They did us proud din't they.

Come on Cuttsie get the grey matter organised , it were 3-2 we won Viilaverde and Evaristo scored for them,lost 2nd leg 2-0, and we rarely had 50,000 crowds. We don,t have to exaggerate to get one over S2, We know we are better.

He must have gone home after clearing the snow off the pitch..
Along with the other 21,000 the attendance at the game was just under 29,000.

We played Roma in front of a full house at Owlerton [50,000].
As to United who has mentioned them ? until you that is

Wednesday had one league game over 50,000 that season against Sheffield United.
They had 65,000 in the FA cup against Manchester United which makes me wonder why there was under 29,000 for the Barcelona game.
Their average for that season was about 28,000.

Maybe the weather was a factor?

We were also the fall guys when English clubs were banned from Europe due to Liverpool fans rioting at Heysol .

Is it just me or does magic seem wrong with a capital M? I thought cuttsie was on a wind up or talking about a new signing and getting 2 years ahead of himself, thought it might have been an age factor thing
