Love this stadium, unfortunately Ive only been once.

Whats great is the huge tiers not divied up, which helps to kill the atmosphere, as nothing beats the 'mass of bodies'

They're in the championship this coming season. After missing out on the playoffs by only a few points, they're gonna be pushing for promotion this season (as usual ). Hopefully we can make it up to the Premiership, we'll have to wait and see how it goes.

And on the pitch situation, they will be completely re-turfing it, as regrowing will take too long. It should be ready for the start of the new season.

Also, the ticket office has been moved to a temporary building, and the superstore is still shut due to flood damage.

Can't wait for the end of next season, with United and Wednesday promoted first and second.

I am very fond of Hillsborough. A proper football ground that has blended modernity with tradition-see redevlopment of their main stand in the mid-1990's for a lesson in how to do it with class.

What are the Owls fans views on Steve McClean. He's signed for Cardiff, which seems a slightly strange move.

Yeah a shame he has left, would have wanted him to stay at S6 for sure. If you guys sign Fowler he may regret moving.

sending him out on loan maybe lol

MacLean's a good player but it's not a total tradegy that he left, Burton and Tudgay is the better partnership IMO.

However, it's an absolute joke it was for free, we should've sorted his contract out in January.
