The BBC website presently (as in just fifteen minutes before kick-off) says: Sheffield Wednesday v. Sheffield United
Venue: Hillsborough, England
Blades host Owls in Sheffield derby https://www.bbc.co.uk/...ve/football/47379509
How can someone working for the BBC, working for their bloody sports department, be this amazingly ignorant of basic football facts? I weep...
On the other hand maybe they have a deep knowledge of Sheffield football, in that Wednesday's original nickname was the Blades (and they played home matches at Bramall Lane long before United were formed).
Or maybe they are just ignorant
As a side note, I think it was Tim Vine who told of his response when asked as to his availability to run one of the Sheffield teams ..... "well I can't manage Wednesday".
