If you've been hanging around with me for a while, you may remember THIS DAY back in 2010 when the boys beloved Sheffield Wednesday were relegated to a lower league. We had tears and everything. The young man remembers it being the worst day of his life. Well today, Sheffield Wednesday have an opportunity to make amends. The whole scenario is very complicated if you are not a footy fan, but basically, if they win today, they will automatically be promoted back up again. SO THEY NEED TO WIN! If they lose or draw, they go into a play off and whoever wins that play off gets promoted.
Today they are playing Wycombe who are being relegated this year. They are only bringing about 200 fans, but as fans are segregated, this meant that thousands of seats would be empty and thousands of fans wouldn't be able to get to watch the match. The solution has been to shove the Wycombe fans into a small corner and put some marshalls and space between the other 5000 seats that have now been sold to the Wednesday fans. It highlighted the difference between male and female thinking when I offered my solution. I thought that they should have given over the "Hospitality" suite to the poor relegated fans and let them have a bit of pleasure out if the day, releasing ALL of the seats in the ground.
On top of all this, the other team in exactly the same position are local rivals Sheffield United.
Meanwhile, I'm hoping to occupy myself in the garden!
