Finally back on hallowed turf - if only for a short while - our regular Owls blogger
Joe Crann returns to Wednesdayite.com with his latest blog. Joe is based in South Africa and is a journalist for Soccer-Laduma, Africa’s biggest football publication. He's Sheffield born and bred and moved over to Cape Town, South Africa in 2011.
After nearly a year and a half of being absent, on December 22nd I made my way through the Hillsborough turnstile with my dad and grandad in front, my South African girlfriend behind and my ticket in hand as I sought a reminder of what Sheffield Wednesday was about.
Since leaving England I’ve been restricted to listening to Wednesday via WednesdayPlayer and watching the highlights days after games have come to an end. Don’t get me wrong, English football is huge in South Africa… except if you’re outside of the Premier League.
