Remember when we had access to 4 stands and all relatively full, Remember being knocked off my feet as a kid when the cops on horses just went rampaging down sheepfoot lane on matchdays, Remember when we had to queue to get into the ground, remember being excited two days before the game...

Just watching "The" Sheffield Wednesday game we were 2nd best for a large part of this game we didn't handle David Hirst at all in the first half.

Watch the 1990 FA Cup Semi vs Man Utd, and the replay, as well as the League Cup final against Nottm Forest, in full here: https://footballia.net/teams/oldham-athletic-afc

There are also 17,098 other historical games to delve into on this monster site.

Rather watch aguero score that fuckin winner 🤮 actually thats bollocks it's the same pain.

One of our legends didn’t appreciate Redfearn shagging his wife apparently.

I thought it was PW who was doing the antics.
