This Charming Man....Online!

All this virus time has given me the opportunity to reflect on the last 30 years or so of life with Sheffield Wednesday. It’s been a rollercoaster ride, with plenty of downs and not so many ups since the halcyon days of the 1990’s. In that 30 year period the world has certainly changed, and some aspects of modern life have had a big impact on the beautiful game.

Musings on Covid-19, football and the moral vacuum

Covid-19 and Football

The current Covid-19 crisis has thrown football a massive curve ball. The hand to mouth culture of so many clubs has been exposed; even for a few in the PL, never mind the Championship where some spend 150% of income on wages and are more dependent on income from match-days. The top clubs in the PL will be ok at the end of all this as they are less reliant on match-day income, they also spend a lower proportion of income on wages....

We will get our Wednesday back - just hang on in there

Most mornings now I get up and fire Twitter up. And most mornings it doesn’t disappoint – some clips or pictures usually of better days gone by for SWFC. Today’s is a picture of Andy Pearce who is apparently celebrating his 54th birthday. Recently – as April rolls on – there has been loads of 91 and 93 Cup Final stuff (and even that fantastic snap of people queueing in their overcoats outside the Gate and the Travellers before getting...

Thoughts on the passing of 3 Wednesdayites and passion for the club

The current public health and economic situation proves that football isn’t more important than life and death, contrary to Bill Shankly’s famous words. That said, football is still important and to some people it is a major part of their life whether they be managers, coaches, players and in many cases fans.

There were few better days out than when a Wednesday win was followed by Frank White belting some tunes out

Early yesterday morning my phone dinged with a new text. It said simply "Did you know Frank White has passed?" Up until then I didn’t, and like so many people I was massively sad to hear the news.

So, why is a little tribute to a local legend turning up on a Wednesday fanzine site? Because for me – and quite a few other people – days out watching Wednesday and Frank’s performances were sometimes closely linked. Some of my favourite...

WOTMT plans during the current hiatus

Faced with the current (hopefully temporary) very changed world, we have been thinking through what we do with War of the Monster Trucks until we come out on the other side. One option we were thinking about was to produce an online version of WOTMT laid out like the printed fanzine, asking people to donate to our chosen charity and we would send them a copy. However as the news has got increasingly miserable we now think that this is probably not the...
