  1. His sister is a Wednesday fan. I went to a few away games with her in the second division/league one seasons.
  2. Paul Scholes was the best attack minded midfielder the country has had since Gascgoine Sven should have built the team around him, not hanging him out to dry by playing him on the left
  3. Bit of an insult to AFC Wimbledon if we're saying Urgohide was one of our bright young prospects
  4. Enjoy it If you have children and the places are open, visit the Sealife centre in Weymouth instead of the Oceanarium in Bournemouth. Much better place in my opinion Also, do the Swanage Railway from Wareham to Swanage and stop at Corfe Castle. There's also the abandoned Tyneham Village which if open, is well worth a stop at. From memory, the school there still has the lesson on the board that it was doing before the village got evacuated, only to never return. The Military usually open the village up in the Summer months for people to visit. If I was to return to the UK, somewhere around there will be the place I move back to. Its the area I always recommend travelling Kiwis' to go and visit when asked.
  5. The Dorset Jurassic coast Durdle Door, Old Harrys Rock, Lulworth Cove, Kimmeridge Bay, Chesil Beach, Isle of Purbeck - such stunning scenery If you want a town to be your base, I highly recommend Weymouth. Otherwise book a B and B in the Dorset countryside that'll give you easy access to them. Beautiful part of the UK
  6. I wouldn't say lost me as a fan but the buzz of going to Hillsborough was lost on me 12 years ago when I and many other long distance supporters were criticised for not doing a 282 mile round trip (in my case) to watch us beat Scunthorpe United 4-0 First year in that decade that I hadn't had a season ticket due to putting that money for a house in London. I did plan to attend around 8 home games that season but after that outburst from the Scunthorpe game, I spent my money elsewhere I only did 2 more Hillsborough matches after that before emigrating, the 0-2 home defeat to Swansea City and the 1-1 draw at home to Bournemouth.
  7. The only manager in the history of football who's side scored 4 goals in a month where they didn't have a single shot on target allegedly. They weren't own goals as well. One was a 30 yard beauty from Reach at Villa Park
  8. I'd be careful about doing this I am certain under that awful era where Calamity Irvine was in charge, we all tried to vote Paul Heffernan for player of the month in a month he never even played (January I think?) We ended up getting a telling off from the club about it as player of the month/year awards tend to be sponsored? Doing something like this wouldn't go down well with them Probably wrong but seem to remember we tried something like this before
  9. The plu side for him is that he is getting into the positions. But had an end product that makes Jeremy Helan, Ronaldinho. But his performance was no where near as bad as any of Guy Branstons during his time with us, or the whole eleven that lost 4-1 at Coventry during our relegation from the premiership, or Ashley Westwoods at home to Palace In fact I can think of at least 30 performances that were worse than Harris's today
  10. Middlesbrough v Sheffield Wednesday highlights Watch video here Middlesbrough v Sheffield Wednesday highlights

  12. Winning down at the Dell in 1992 Finding out Arsenal drew with that lot meant we were 5 points clear of them with 3 games remaining Europe qualification was almost guaranteed after that. Wonder if that's on their honors board? That 1-1 draw helped our neighbours get to Europe?
  13. Even though its against the Scottish team I always look out for Well played Highland League side Brora Rangers
  14. I do as well We then got a win down at QPR and got a deserved 3 all draw at home to the runaway winners Fulham afterwards. Signing Ekoku really helped the youngsters and Sibon knuckled down after pleading with the fans not to boo him.
  15. Squad maybe but our first team was not as good as Brightons. That team had been together for a while, they had a very good manager in Hughton and bought the right players to take them over the finishing line. They were very unfortunate the previous season to go up and lose to us in the play offs. Their defence in particular was by far the best in the league For me, whilst that season was our best - it could have been even better had we sold that little cry baby after refusing to get on the coach to Norwich. I think Newcastle or Fulham were offering us around the 15 million mark. That sort of income would have been perfect to invest in other players to complete the final pieces of the jigsaw we needed. Although I am unsure if that income would have been spent on the players required.
