Wednesday Fans Bag Brits!

Wednesday Fans Bag Brits!

Wednesday fans and Sheffield's finest band the Arctic Monkeys bagged two awards at last night's Brit Awards - winning the best British group and best British album.

Alex Turner, Jamie Cook, Matt Helders and Nick O'Malley are all big Wednesday fans - often seen on stage sporting the famous blue and white shirt and making appearances at Hillsborough watching the blue and white wizards.

And they were rewarded for their fantastic album 'Whatever People Say I Am That's What I'm Not' - which is the fastest selling debut album on record - with the award for the best British album, while they also collected the best British band gong - just a year after bursting on to the scene.

The band did have a Sheffield United fan in their ranks - bassist Andy Nicholson - but alas, the Monkeys are now 100 per cent blue and white following Nicholson's departure from the band last year, to be replaced by Nick O'Malley.

To make things even sweeter for the band, self-confessed Blades fan Sean Bean had the honour of revealing the Monkey's as the winner's in the best British band category - chin up, Sean!

They should write a song about the Owls and get it to the top of the charts!

I'm not surprised he left. Poor lad, working with 4 Wednesday fans!!! Bet all he ever got was 'How many groupies have you got'? 'we've got more, therefore we're more talented...blah, blah blah! Bands gone seriously downhill since he left though, obviously had all the talent!!!!
