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.

Owls Blog - Paul Corry Graduates To The Hillsborough Limelight

23 October 2012
Owls BlogOwls Blog
Owls Blogger Chris Brookes returns to Wednesdayite.com with his latest blog, this time talking about the latest Owls debutant, Irishman Paul Corry.

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.
"On a Friday night of a compelling Yorkshire derby between Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United the football was clouded by disgraceful incidents, but Wednesday’s young Irish midfielder and recent university graduate Paul Corry was a real source of promise in an impressive overall display from the home side.
