The Possibilities Are Endless!

The Possibilities Are Endless!

It's a praise for the fans, a praise for the team, and it's a hope for more Christmas cheer! Mark Hollins offers Vital Sheffield Wednesday his latest musings...

--------------------------------------------

We Only Win When We're Singing, Win When We're Siiiiiiiiinging

'Winners make a habit of manufacturing their own positive expectations in advance of the event.'

I can't help but relate to that quote... even me... an optimist.

Who would doubt us getting a result on Saturday? Well one Sunday tabloid still has our form at a 6 and banks on an away win... love how we're still being noticed... long may it continue.

It's been a surprising amount of time since we played Birmingham. It's been an even more surprising time since we were rubbing shoulders with the best of em... times change.

Lets say we win on Saturday. We'd be noticed. How would it affect us? No one knows.

All I hope is that Hillsborough sees the sort of turn out the p1gs could only dream of at mid table in the second division... and lets hope we HEAR a crowd which resembles the whispers that someone is fudging the attendance figures on a weekly basis.

Back to Norwich. Couldn't make it as the more loyal season ticket holders had their dirty way with our allocation but I am a huge fan of Radio Sheffield so the consolation isn't far from a brilliant replacement. They have a knack of capturing the atmosphere. Had I not been an obsessive swfc.co.uk user and hadn't known we only had 1400 seats I'd have thought we'd half filled Carrow Road. Full marks to anyone reading who attended; top Cardiff style shivers running down the old back bone.

We as fans must take some credit for some of the results of late. We are the outstanding support in the country. Often when we're loud and proud we are second to none; much proved in the weekend's tremendous win.

I take nothing from the players - the result was spectacular and all reports indicate fully deserved. Brilliant. You have to say, had you read the pre-match hype from both camps, Norwich gave us the respect our football deserves.

I remember, when we were amongst the football elite, Christmas being a traditionally profitable period for Wednesday (Guy Whittingham's scoring exploits spring to mind).

If Crimbo '06 brings as much joy as the ones in the not so distant past, I can see us bedding down for a spring filled with top 6's and play-off jaunts. I for one have been on the new Wembley website dreaming on what could be.

Ifs and buts... nice to have the positive ones for once!

Quick message for DA, now is the time to spend and not speculate, old boy...take the blue pill...strengthen and become a legend...take the red pill...to Bramall Lane....

Wednesday - The possibilities are endless!

Wednesday 2 - 2 Birmingham

UTO!
