WEDNESDAYITE WEEKLY

JUST ANOTHER MATCH...YEAH RIGHT!


EDDIE'S RANT

There's been a strange feeling around Planet SWFC in the buildup to what is undoubtably the most important Steel City Derby in recent memory. Perhaps it's that we've gone a bit rubbish while the Pigs have gone from strength to strength. Maybe it's memories of previous seasons when we've expected too much and been delivered too little. Or maybe it's just that we're keeping our powder dry for the big day, and letting the grunts and snorts of our Blade workmates and neighbours ring out now, safe in the knowledge that come 3pm on Sunday they'll be put back in their box again...

In any case, it's the chance for any one of the players in blue and white to make themselves a Hillsborough legend in the same way that Andy Pearce, Lloyd Owusu or Efan Ekoku did - by scoring a crucial goal in a derby match. My money's on a Jose Semedo piledriver from 40 yards out...but then again, I once bet that I could outrun a horse, so I might not be the best source of information.

So even though we're all a bit scared that we'll carry our form into this match, and they'll carry theirs, and it will get a bit rubbish, I remind you that none of that matters come Derby day, and that with 34,000 Wednesdayites making so much noise that the hundred or so Blunts in attendance soil themselves (they're not used to big crowds, bless), not only are the lads sure to steamroller the bacon-stripers and collect the valuable three points, but they'll also leave with THIS CITY IS OURS ringing in their piggy little ears.

So turn up in your colours, hold your scarves high, and sing until you can't sing another note. Do it for TC. Do it for Meggo. Do it for Hirsty. Do it for the Arctic Monkeys. Do it for John Pearson, Mark Smith and Radio Sheffield's Rob Staton. Do it because it will wipe the smug smile off Sean Bean's fat, Fairness In Football face. Do it because for ninety minutes, nothing else matters but winning and reminding every Blunt in attendance and literally dozens worldwide that they'll always be in our shadow.

See you there. UP THE OWLS.




DERBY DAY REMINDER: LOUNGE, BREAKFAST & CAR PARK


STEEL CITY DERBY

Derby Day means special arrangements, and this one is no different.

First of all, the Wednesdayite Lounge is open from 10, with members and accompanied guests only welcome (guests £1 donation).

Please note that members need to bring their proof of membership for entry - either their card or their Eventbrite receipt (or Eddie will have his membership database to check you if you've lost either of the above!). Expired members can renew on the day for just a fiver, and if you expired after December 31st 2011, we've extended your membership to the end of the season anyway - so you're a member in good standing!

If you want to take advantage of the delicious matchday breakfast then it requires pre-booking online, costing just £5.50. No sales will be made on the day, and sales end today (Friday) at 5pm!

Please note that there is no parking at Niagara on Sunday - why not park in the Wednesdayite Car Park and walk down?

And finally, with the crowd likely to be massive, our Car Park team would remind permit holders to get into the car park early so as to benefit from their priority spaces.

One of our regular Owls Blogger Rory McAllister, The Southern Owl, is making the trip from 'Down South' 'oop' (as Rory would say) to Sheffield for his first ever Steel City Derby.

Rory has a lot planned this weekend to make it a special one, let's hope the Owls can make it even more special for him and us all, over to Rory...

THE FIRST RULE OF WEEKLY CLUB - DON'T TALK ABOUT FOOTBALL

Wednesday definitely didn't play any matches this week, especially not at Chesterfield. And if they had done, they wouldn't have squandered approximately 7420 chances to take the lead, and most of all wouldn't concede a penalty late in the game leading to defeat. Football? What's that? I was watching WHEN SWANS ATTACK on Dave Ja Vu +3 HD.

WEDNESDAY SIGN WINGER; LOSE WINGER

The Owls signed Reading wide man Michail Antonio on a loan for the rest of the season this week. Twenty-four hours later, they announced that Jermaine Johnson was out for eight weeks with knee ligament damage. Antonio can make his debut against the Blunts on Sunday, with some pretty nippy shoes to fill!

The son of US President Grover Cleveland and Amy Childs from The Only Way Is Essex, Antonio was born in 1844 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Growing up on a tiger farm outside Swindon, he first rose to prominence as the body double for Simon Cowell throughout filming of Terminator II: Judgement Day. He represented Burma in the Commonwealth Games of 1999 before leaving to join Southampton on loan, where he scored 6 in 32 appearances for the Swedish side. Antonio is a keen fan of Duran Duran and likes spiders.*
