With united storming up the league I think they have a good chance of being a premiership club in a couple of years time

Meanwhile Wednesday will carry on being a club that promises so much but delivers so little.

Expect more play off dissapontments over the next few years for owls fans

Is now a good time to consider switching sides if you are a floating supporter?

United are on the up by the looks of things

8 year olds might be swayed, but that's about it ('til they get a bit of 'correction therapy)

That's what you lot might be like but don't think Sheffield fans work like that.

The very essence of supporting a club is following it through thick and thin, floaters are not real fans. I'd rather watch SWFC in non league than SUFC in anything.

Wednesday til I die....

I may not get to the matches anymore, but I would not swap at all. Even if the Owls went under.

Stay true to your club whatever position and league they are in.

They're not really supporters though,are they?Real supporters stick to their club no matter what.I have wished countless times over the last 50 years that I wasn't a Wednesdayite,but I can't help it - it's in my blood just as it was in my Dad's and in his Dad's too I could never support anybody else.(Anyway,my Dad would haunt me if I did!)

You don't mean like probably 50% of the current supporters,who only have recollection of Utd being in the premiership and think of them as a Premiership team(just like Look North).

hypothetical, but... if Rotherham were in the prem, team full of internationals, in the champions league, then I know whom I would be supporting. I want to watch exciting, scintillating football. if my favourite tele goes on the blink, I buy another one what plays properly.

That used to happen a lot, I assume people stopped doing that once football became more and more expensive to watch.

Also - (well according to my Dad) - in he went London Chelsea one week and Fulham the next, because was the only chance to watch football. No games on TV or owt, and almost all matches were on Saturday 3pm. (and was same up here) - perhaps in the 50s when both clubs were getting pretty big crowds, I wonder how much that had to do with it?
