Greetings from Germany

on December 31, 2013

We received the following message from Chris Mantzios this week and thought we would share this with you all:-

 


Dear Owls-Friends!

Being a Greek living in Germany, I am a big fan and supporter of Sheffield Wednesday FC which was the first English football team I have ever seen. This was many years ago and I was immediately fascinated by the art of playing, the club itself and its amazing supporters!

Owls Blog - Remember Boxing Day?

on December 24, 2013

It will be thirty four years since we played the game that became known as "The Boxing Day Massacre" and we would like to receive your memories of the day. The crowd that day was a third division record of 49,309 , this on a day of no public transport.

Please fell free to email your story of that day to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and we will publish them in this article.

So keep checking it as more contributions are added.

Kicking us off is one of our regular writers and Wednesdayite Director Peter Shaw with:

FA Cup 3rd round - Away to Macclesfield Town

on December 08, 2013

The FA Cup third round draw took place at 4pm this afternoon,

We were number 34 in the draw and we have been drawn to play:


Macclesfield Town V The Owls

The Owls travel to Moss Rose to visit Conference side Macclesfield Town. This will be our first ever visit to Moss Rose

We have only played The Silkmen once before in November 1975 when we played them at Hillsborough is the 1st round of the FA cup and we emerged winners with a 3-1 victory. 

With Macclesfield being one of only three non-league sides still in the cup there is a very good chance this may be picked for live TV,  and with the current capacity of Moss Rose being only 6,335. Away fans are normally located in the open John Askey Terrace, where up to 1,500 fans can be accommodated. Additionally, 403 seats are usually made available in the Henshaw's Stand, which sits at one side of the pitch.

The full draw is shown below (Ties to be played on the weekend of 4 and 5 January 2014)

Tribute to Nelson Mandela

on December 06, 2013

The announcement of Nelson Mandela's death was made by President Jacob Zuma at 21:50 on Thursday 5th December 2013 live on television speaking to the world.

One of the brightest lights in our world has gone out tonight.

To those who observed him closely, Nelson Mandela always carried himself as one who was born to lead.
