A Rhyme for Captain Blade and Ozzie Owl

We use a familiar old nursery rhyme to record a tale for two of Sheffield’s proudest clubs.

Fourteen Days Left To Save Sheffield Wednesday. Again.

There were over 20,000 people at Hillsborough last night to Sheffield Wednesday lose at home to Huddersfield Town in League One and, much as that defeat may have dented the home side’s chances of promotion this season, the overwhelming feeling this week has been that Wednesday have got bigger fish to fry at the moment…
