Let's Welcome Milan To Hillsborough

Forget the cold snap - get yourselves down to Hillsborough this weekend to give new owner-to-be Milan Mandaric a very warm welcome to our great club!

Mandaric, who has agreed a deal to buy the Owls and is set to get official confirmation next week following an EGM, will be at Hillsborough for the first time to watch Wednesday in action when they host Bristol Rovers in npower League One.

And we should get down at our famous old ground in our droves to welcome the man to S6 this weekend - and mark what will hopefully be a bright new chapter in our club's history.

I have to admit I haven't exactly been jumping for joy at the thought of going to matches this season - mainly down to the lower standard of football in League 1 than we've been used to in the Championship.

Sometimes it's seemed like a chore rather than a pleasure.

But this one is one that I can safely say I've been looking forward to ever since it was clear that the future of Wednesday had been saved by the former Leicester City and Portsmouth chairman.

Away defeats at Carlisle and Swindon Town respectively have followed since the announcement.

But that hasn't dampened my appetite to welcome Milan to Hillsborough this weekend, and show him just what being owner of Sheffield Wednesday is all about when he walks out on to that pitch.

The news of him taking over the club was met by joy all over the blue and white parts of Sheffield.

And those fans who welcomed the news, and indeed have been staying away thanks to the poor running of the club off the pitch in recent years can showcase their joy and support to our chairman-to-be in person, as well as hopefully cheering the Owls to three points.

The club are confident the game will go ahead without any problems, despite the recent sub-zero temperatures, and the stadium operations team have been working hard to ensure the area immediately around the stadium is safe.

Tickets for under-18's are priced at just 5 and are available at that price until 12 noon on the day of the game, with tickets returning to their regular pricing after. Ticket stubs can also be used as a 5 voucher to spend on official merchandise in the Owls Megastore.

Adult prices start at just 17 in the Kop to catch the Owls for the final time before Christmas.

Tickets can be bought in person from the ticket office or via the online shop at http://shop.sheffieldwednesday.co.uk.

I agree Nick - "Manderin" deserves our thanks. After listening to the originality of the England fans new song "Swan will tear you appart again" I wonder what we'll end up singing regarding Manderin?
