A reader gets in touch following The Diary’s revelation that a novel in which Sheffield United and Wednesday merge could be made into a movie.
“Horror film?” tweets Blades fan Si Barone.
PRESTON NOT PORT VALE
And several other readers email in after spotting a (not so deliberate) mistake in Tuesday’s Diary.
In our article on Victor Bonett, the Maltese man who is a Sheffield United fanatic, it was said his favourite game was the 2009 play-off game against Port Vale.
“He may be a diehard Blade but we can tell your proof readers aren’t,” noted one missive. “The game was against Preston.”
NEVER TOO LATE
And yet another reader gets in touch on another soccer story.
Nick Eagle tweets after this page reported how Apperknowle centurion Gladys Smith celebrated her 100th birthday by going to watch her first ever football match. The great grandma went to see Chesterfield FC take on Newport County at the Proact Stadium.
Nick says: “Good on her. Never too late to get into football.”
Very true. Although when you’re sat watching a goalless draw on a freezing Tuesday night in Grimsby, you often wish it was.
A HOLIDAY IN ROTHERHAM
Congratulations to the Holiday Inn Rotherham-Sheffield which has been named the Kew Green chain hotel of the year.
The Catcliffe complex was honoured as the best in the country, as reported in The Star. Well worth going there for your holiday, perhaps?
MONEY IS FUNNY
So, Sheffielders are leading the way using a new internet currency, it seems.
Some 27 per cent of city folk have used bitcoin, according to figures.
Nice to know we’re so tech-savvy, of course, but can that really be true? Virtual money or not, since when did Yorkshire folk spend their hard-earned so freely?
