 Just for you Runningman.   

 

Can you do a Owls v City one Alan, which I've just commented on..

Would love to see that again.

I’m old enough to actually remember when Sheffield Wednesday were a decent team.

 

or maybe I imagined it.

 Sorry Padders, searched  Pathe News and You tube  and nothing relevant. Take a look at this for old times.

Cheers Alan, poor leapfrog after the second goal, by todays standards.

 

I mean somersault.

 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.

yeah padders although 60 years ago now I remember the old shed end,i think they called it that,then we moved on to the finest ground in England over the 60s world cup ect,but others invested in the teams,but now our poor old grounds looking old and sad,pretty much the same as the team,but the win at Wembley ,I was there to them all ,but big RON and that cup was so great,one I will savour for ever,but for some reason theres always a bad bit,when every 10 years its a bad run,i hope if someones looking down on us,please give us a few good years ,before myself and many other 65 plus leave this world.

Thanks Padders, one hell of a crowd and a very uneven pitch

March 18th 1961  The Blades v Leicester FA cup semi final at Elland Road, Leeds

My father had just passed away, obviously Mom was in a state !

Didn't think I ought to ask her for the money for a ticket and the coach fare

But I did and she coughed up

I knew a lad close to where I lived with a spare ticket which I bought off him the night before

Went down to Pond Street on the Saturday morning, bought a seat and got on the coach

What a journey, no M1 of course

Horrendous traffic and we pulled into a car park near the ground at around 2-45

Folks running frantically to get to the ground and much to the amusement of many, blokes trying to jump across a drainage ditch and falling in.

Got to a position within the Leicester supporters just as they kicked off

Poor game I remember, but Doc Pace brought the ball down with his shoulder and tapped the ball into the net

Ref disallowed it and Pace obviously very annoyed pointed to the mud mark on his shoulder

The ref stood firm !

 

One of a hundred disappointments watching my team

Remember the Doc Pace incident well, another one of them occasions that go down in the history books..

Did that game need 3 matches to decide the outcome?

Blades memories apart.

 

My father took me to Leeds v Spurs 1964, first season Leeds were in Division one , Jimmy Greaves scored but Leeds won 3-1, booo. Barnsley 0 v 4/Man Utd, 1963 ( I think), Law, Charlton, Styles, etc

 

Apologies.

 

This is about Sheffield football memories.

Brilliant read though. We had a great run 1967-68, before losing at Leeds, 1-0. Addison got the ball over the line but not given, where was VAR (spit) when you need it ?
