We're on holiday and had VirginMedia installed a few weeks ago. Just used the app to remotely set the TiVo to record. Fingers crossed it works!

Fantastic - sky box set to record. My first game as a season ticket holder - 13 years old in the old family enclosure, G block South Stand. Thought it'd be like that every week...

Was supposed still to be on holiday in France for that match. Managed to convince my parents to cut it short by a day so we could attend. Oddly enough, met a bit more resistance from my mum than my dad!

The BBC are currently recapping all the opening day fixtures of the 1st PL season. I think there might be a Blade on the staff somewhere....

Horne saves the day for Toffees
15 August 1992: Everton 1-1 Sheffield Wednesday

Posted at 13:17
For those of you who are astonished easily, yes, Sheffield Wednesday used to play in the Premier League.

And Nigel Pearson - him of "ostrich" fame and management - scored the opener for the Owls, after a mistake by Neville "Big Nev" Southall, before Wales stalwart Barry Horne smashed in the equaliser.

The Owls were wearing a horrendous yellow with black stripes kit.

Watching it now, Deano just scored, interesting how our style was so different then, as soon as we win the ball we go forward with it quickly, John Gannon especially, makes for an exciting game with lots of box action and efforts on goal.

Gah! Don't spoil it for those of us who haven't had a chance to watch it yet.

loving watching this, as I had only just turned 2 when this took place, interesting to see how the ground has developed in 25 yrs, but watching it, i can see similarities from this dave Bassett team to current Wilder team, in the team spirit also how they battle & attack. which is no bad thing considering how well that team fought against odds so many times in what they achieved. The tolerance to tackling has certainly decreased because in the 1st half when Tracey took Giggs out in the box, my 1st thought was penalty which now it would've been certainty, then nothing

but it always amazes me when you think the 13 players in the man utd matchday squad 8 of them later went on to be a manager somewhere, Bruce D Ferguson Hughes Kanchlecis Giggs Phelan Ince, either Pallister/Blackmore
