Thoughts on a new season

The Eve of the new season in the last 3 season has seen an issue with Fernando Forestieri take the attention. In 16/17 there was the toys out of the pram hissy fit and having to be cajoled into playing against Villa. 17/18 was the altercation at Mansfield which led to a 3 match ban and further consequences. One of those further consequences played itself out this week in the run up to 19/20 with his 6 match ban and £25k...

Some thoughts on a tricky summer for SWFC

 A few weeks ago it seemed like everything was going swimmingly: SB’s recruitment team had identified 3 players who cost us nothing and were seemingly able to improve the squad; Tony Strudwick was in place to sort out our fitness issues, and the players were getting a good workout in the Algarve sunshine. And the spirit in the camp seemed really positive. Then it all started to fall apart a little bit! It is important to acknowledge that those pluses mentioned here...

Plans confirmed for WOTMT Issue 41

Many thanks to everyone who took the trouble to respond to our article about a full-on revival of the paper War of the Monster Trucks fanzine; the responses were all positive, with pretty much everyone supporting the proposed direction of travel. So, after a high-level meeting this week (Steve and I in the Blake with a pint of chocolate stout), here’s the plan.

We will resume production of WOTMT with issue 41 in time for the home match against QPR (Saturday...

Bringing back the paper WOTMT?

We have reflected on all the positive feedback, the level of fanzine sales, and the money we raised for charity through the two All Wednesday fanzines of last season. As a result we have decided to give it another go in the 2019/20 season, subject to your views. We don’t really know whether all the positive energy about the fanzine will hold up for next season, or whether last season was all a ‘one-off’ linked to Matt Exton's brilliant film. It still feels like...

An intro to a forthcoming book about the dark days of the early 1970's

I am one of the lucky ones. I was born in 1975. As a kid, my first season watching the Owls involved the Owls clinch promotion back to Division One in 1984. The 1980s then saw FA Cup runs, top five finishes and the Owls competing at the highest level. As a teenager I was then fortunate enough to see the Atkinson and Francis teams and regular trips to Wembley of the early 1990s. It wasn’t always like this…

Some thoughts on recent club developments

The news that our club has probably completed a sale and leaseback deal on the stadium broke on Friday after much recent speculation on that subject. That speculation was also linked to the late publication of the accounts for 2017/18; the end February date was avoided by putting the reporting period back by 2 months to end April, now they are later than that, with a club spokesman suggesting they will be released in the next few weeks. Yes, it’s only...
