on November 27, 2011
Owls BlogOwls Blog
We once again welcome a new Owls Blogger to the Wednesdayite.com, Charlie Allen who is 19 years old and lives in Intake S12 but was born in the lovely S6.

He moved away from Sheffield for about 7 years occasionally coming back to see the Owls for birthdays and so on when Gerald Sibon and Shefki Kuqi were in their prime and eventually moved back to Sheffield when he was about 11-12 to be reunited with the blue and white wizards and have been watching them ever since.  I have had a season ticket for the past painfull 5 years and get to as many away games as possible.  Hopefully now things have changed with the two M's, Megson and Mandaric at the helm so lets get behind the lads.

Over 270 Owls fans packed into the club's 1867 Lounge last Wednesday to enjoy our first Hirsty's Bar of the season - this one given over to the men at the sharp end, the gunslingers, the netbusters - the strikers. Host Hirsty was in great form as always, but was matched every step of the way by two other Owls legends in Rodger Wylde and Jack Whitham, not to mention the current goal king of Hillsborough, Gary Madine!

After the Owls 2-2 draw at Bramall Lane last Sunday Owls blogger Mark Hazell returns to Wednesdayite.com with his memories of the Steel City Derby.  Mark grew up in Doncaster and went to school in Broomhill, Sheffield followed by going to Birmingham University to do Economics and Spanish and graduated last summer before joining Opta Sports in November 2010 and now works for their editorial department in London.

Mark has always supported Wednesday and used to go to games with his Dad when he was younger and got his first season ticket when he was about 13. vMark has kept his season ticket despite moving away from Sheffield, and tries to get back as much as he can as well as going to away games when possible.

"We are now 9 games into the season and the League 1 table is starting to take shape. We are currently 4 points from the automatic promotion places after a somewhat turbulent start to the season, which is a decent position to mount a serious promotion challenge.
