Owls Blog - The COG Blog

on June 20, 2013
The first Owls blog of the close season sees a new Owls Blogger, Aiden Cusick, feature on Wednesdayite.com.  Aiden is a 22-year-old wannabe sports journalist with an obsession for Sheffield Wednesday and in his own words "talks a good game, plays like Kim Olsen."
 
Aiden's first blog some may say is good timing, some may say it's bad timing - but Aiden takes a view on recent Owls striker and new Barnsley signing Chris O'Grady.

"Sheffield Wednesday signed off their first season back in the Championship with a 2-0 win against Middlesbrough, at Hillsborough. It was a game the Owls had to win, to retain the second tier status that the club fought so hard to attain the season before.

He took him to his first Wednesday game at Hillsborough during the 1998-99 season where the Owls drew 0-0 with Chelsea and despite no goals, in his own words "I was hooked".  One of his favourite Wednesday goals witnessed live was Matt Hamshaw's mesmeric goal vs Watford in the League Cup Quarter Final in 2001 when we won 4-0.  His favourite players over the years have been Chris Brunt, Jermaine Johnson and John-Paul McGovern.

Owls blogger Matt Grant returns to Wednesdayite.com with his second blog in the last couple of weeks and this time looks at the Owls season so far and speculates how the rest of the season will pan out.

"Time to dust ourselves off and keep on marching.  Like many Wednesdayites, I try to attend all of the home games and get in at least a couple of away days per season. And like a lot of Wednesdayites, getting to home games can feel at times like constantly doing the away day as I have to make a 40+ mile journey there and back each time over the Pennines from where I currently live in Stockport.

"'Cult status, in football is usually reserved for a player who for all his technical deficiencies is something of a fan’s favourite. Every once in a while maybe a manager or chairman might steal the hearts of a club’s fan sufficiently to be thought of in such a way. More rarely still it might be a static fixture such as Anfield’s famous Kop or, although not connected to a club, the twin towers of the old Wembley stadium. Cult status can never truly be understood by an outsider but even so once in a while cult status can be afforded to something really bizarre.

He also writes regularly about Wednesday whenever he gets the opportunity.
