Owls Blog - Sheffield Wednesday: To Be Home

15 February 2013
Owls BlogOwls Blog
Finally back on hallowed turf - if only for a short while - our regular Owls blogger Joe Crann returns to Wednesdayite.com with his latest blog.  Joe is based in South Africa and is a journalist for Soccer-Laduma, Africa’s biggest football publication.  He's Sheffield born and bred and moved over to Cape Town, South Africa in 2011. 

"After nearly a year and a half of being absent, on December 22nd I made my way through the Hillsborough turnstile with my dad and grandad in front, my South African girlfriend behind and my ticket in hand as I sought a reminder of what Sheffield Wednesday was about.

Since leaving England I’ve been restricted to listening to Wednesday via WednesdayPlayer and watching the highlights days after games have come to an end. Don’t get me wrong, English football is huge in South Africa… except if you’re outside of the Premier League.

Owls Blog - Reda Johnson: The Demolition Man In Owls Fans' Hearts

18 January 2013

Owls Blogger Chris Brookes returns to Wednesdayite.com with his latest blog, this time talking about the Owls' monster of a full-back, REDA! REDA! REDA!

Chris is a journalism graduate (Sheffield Hallam University), 22 years old and a Kop season ticket holder since 2004, but a fan from further back than that. He also runs his own blog beatsandrhymesfc.com where he interviews players past and present but with the different angle of discussing music with them, with some top name interviews on there so far. He also writes regularly about Wednesday whenever he gets the opportunity.
"Football may be huge business the world over but one thing the decision-makers can sometimes be unaware of is just how much deeper it goes than that. It simply means everything to people, it is painted into the fibres of communities in so many ways and if you are a part of it you truly feel that largely indescribable sense of belonging.

Owls Blog - Us And Them: What's In A Name?

30 November 2012
Owls BlogOwls Blog
Owls blogger Richard Brook brings us his latest blog to Wednesdayite.com. Richard 31-year-old life-long Wednesday supporter, and amateur football writer. He lives with his wife and three Wednesday brain washed children. Like most of his generation Richard’s heroes were Hirst, Waddle and Sheridan, and as goalkeeper himself Kevin Pressman.

"'What's in a name?' is a question famously borrowed from Shakespeare, in the Brian Friel play 'Translations'. The play focusses on the tribal importance of language, and especially names within social groups, as it sees a couple of British cartographers sent to Ireland to map the local area and anglicise place names. Some of the Irish characters feel more strongly than others regarding the erosion of their heritage. Indeed the character Owen, who utters Juliet's famous question, does so having been wrongly referred to as Roland, for most of the plot, without bothering to correct anyone. To other characters the maintenance of their cultural and individual identities, is far more important. I know what your thinking. Firstly you are wondering if you have clicked on to the Wednesdayite blog. Yes you have. Secondly you are wondering if Wednesdayite have been hacked. No they have not. Thirdly you want to know what on earth I am on about. All I can ask is that you read on and see if I can win you round on that.
