April 2010



So the 3rd and finale live election debate was on last nite…

What did you reckon…

 Wweellllll, to me the Liberals again performed well, against and huff-and-puff of labour, ( although Brown does seem genuinely passionate about his politics ) and the too slick tories.

 The true feelings of the British electorate though were summed up by a woman in the audience, of Question Time, the follow on show. Who in no uncertain terms told the panel that the British electorate was sick of being fobbed off with non answers to questions, and to declare exactly  how many cuts , and where the cuts in public spending would be made ! as she said ” you work for us, we pay you ! ” but sadly Dimbleby smoothed over the comment, and on to the next question. That was the money question that had to answered.

 We all know that cuts are coming, probably very heavy cuts in spending, but be honest, about it, and tell us !! we are not uninformed children, be honest with us, you may be surprised by the reaction !


 Oh the rumour mill has started,

 Father Ted will get the sack if swfc are relegated…

 Yeah like that is going to help the situation , what ever league we are in… getting together a team of players who are championship standard, and want to play for the club, and as a team, should be a priority ! No getting rid of another good manager !

So on to sunday, winner takes all !!


So Sunday is a sell out 36,000+

Swfc wanted to open the “triangle” “crows nest” etc etc  open, but the police said no.

 ( secretly it is a shame, as it hold one of the best views of the ground!!!) I remember standing there in the 80’s and seeing a Man Utd fan shin up a flag pole to change a flag to one with Man Utd written on it !!!  hehehe . We need the atmosphere of those days on Sunday, again I remember seeing us play Man Utd ( different game !) ,standing on the kop amongst a crowd of 48,000 , after me dad talked the guy on the turn stile into letting me in !! swaying like a good’un. God help us when we scored !!!

  Don’t get on the players backs on sunday, give 110 % support and we will stay up !

The Future is Bright…..   The Future is Blue & White !

listening to Kids in glass houses…..   whilst waiting for me Drive By Truckers cd to arrive !


Bigger than the play off final of 2005 ??

Well in some ways yes…..

 2005 ,

 me dad must have queued for 5 hours or so for tickets, and come the day, we got to Cardiff really early, managing to get the last space in what turned out to be a Hartlepool Utd car park…!

41,000 of us made the pilgrimage that day. Great day , great memories, one of which was the then Talismanic Steve Maclean  having missed 9 months with a broken leg, came off the bench as a sub, and within a couple of minutes, his first touch was to score a penalty !!  time to stand up and be counted. None of that 2005 team are now playing at SWFC I don’t think, but the present team have to play like it is a play off final, this is a one off chance to give something back to the fans, that  – lets be honest – has been lacking this season.

 Time to stand and be counted.

 PLAY FOR THE SHIRT, play for the fans,

The future is bright, the future is blue & white. !!


BBC to show the Sheffield Wednesday VS Crystal Palace game on Sunday 1pm

At 7am, 26,000 tickets sold, and apparently BT have announced they didn’t expect the demand for tickets, ( as if )

 So the relegation decider is all going to be decided on Sunday, a win , nothing less will do, Lee Stafford, calls it the biggest game for 20 yrs  !  If that isn’t enough of a wake up call , then nothing is.!

The nerves are jangling already

The future is bright , the future is blue and white.


My parents came down at the weekend, which was good as it’s been a few months now.

 Plus me mum, had an alterior motive….

 Wonder wool.

 Not a rip off Oasis band, but one of the biggest days in the knitting, craft calendar .

So off to Builth Wells for the day.

 Bulth, is extremely picturesque, but like a land that time forgot…. in a good way.

 ( sshh   and quite English )

 A really nice friendly place, where people actually speak to you in the street..

but not alot there bar the show ground and great park and river walk. as me and pops found as we avoided Wonderwool !!!

My car finally got the handbrake repaired on saturday, ( after 2 1/2 hr commute home on Friday , with a 40minute crawl, for 400yds up a steep incline !! ) many prayers were offered upto the handrake !

 Sunday was interesting, as I learnt to cook chicken, I know 30 something, but remember I haven’t eaten it since age of 3 ish, but I thought as J and D will eat it ( hopefully ) then it was time to learn.

 As for TV what are we going to do, Ashes to Ashes only has 4 episodes left, and Heroes finishes next week….    though J is in her element still with Glee, ( though I fear after last night Madonna maybe making a comeback…..    if she ever went away !

listening to Bullet for my Vallentine, and Faith No More


Prayer mat is still out, and lives to see another game !!

Baggies drew, which means that it is effectively a winner takes all on Sunday,

Only a win will do …..

Not a day for the faint hearted.
