Owls Blog - Wednesday Are Back: Something Special Stirring in S6

on May 31, 2012
Owls BlogOwls Blog
With the Owls having secured promotion to the Championship at the end of the 2011-12 season we welcome new Owls Blogger Chris Brookes to Wednesdayite.com.

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.

Now the season is over and we gained our ultimate goal of automatic promotion, our regular Owls match previewer and Wednesdayite.com blogger Ricky Charlesworth looks forward to next season and speculates what pre-season may hold for us.

Ricky looks at our current squad list, it's lack of Championship experience and what is required.

Owls Blog - Steve Chus The Fat - The Turning Point?

on May 11, 2012
Owls BlogOwls Blog

We welcome another new Owls blogger to Wednesdayite.com and to die-hard Wednesday fans this man won't need much introducing.

Steve Chu was the Communications Manager at Sheffield Wednesday from August 2000 to February 2007.  In his first 2 1/2 years at Hillsborough he worked for three chairmen and four managers. During Steve's time at the club, he led the development of the most viewed official club website in the Football League and won a clean sweep of Programme of the Year awards in 2004. Away from football, Steve is best known for his research at Bell Labs in cooling and trapping of atoms with laser light, which won him a share of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1997*. He is now Head of Communications and Administration at South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue.

*information from Wikipedia. May be a different Steve Chu, but all true Owls fans know that the Chumeister is so incredible he would regularly pick up Nobel prizes in ten minute breaks from his work communicating SWFC's message.

Now the Owls are safely promoted to the Championship Owls blogger, Ann Barker, blogs about the conclusion to the season. Ann works in Bradford and has always supported the mighty Owls. She has a commercial pilots licence, two Springer Spaniels who go wild if you say 'Sheffield Wednesday' and she loves Chris Waddle with all her heart.

"One match I will always remember was at Hillsborough in April 2004. I had been living in Japan for the 2 years previously and was really excited to be going back to see the mighty Owls, even though we had dropped into League One.

Owls Blogger and Sky Sports fan zone SWFC blogger Carl Mullooly returns to Wednesdayite.com for the final game of the Owls 2011-12 season and looks at what could be a tense day on Saturday.

"If you would have told me 2 weeks ago we would go into the final game of the season favourites for automatic promotion I wouldn’t have believed you. Three things happened shortly after my last blog, which I believe shifted the momentum from red to blue in the steel city.
