Football fans troll Sheffield Wednesday supporter who ripped up tickets ahead of playoff second leg

He’ll never do that again

One Sheffield Wednesday fan was left regretting his decision to rip up his tickets for their League One play-off semi final second leg against Peterborough United.

Although the odds were heavily stacked against Darren Moore’s side, Wednesday came from four goals down to win on penalties after a 5-1 win in normal and extra time left the aggregate score at 5-5.

Wednesday held their nerve in the penalty shoot out and completed one of the most famous comebacks in football to leave them one game away from a return to the Championship.

However one Owls supporter was left cursing his decision after appearing to rip up his tickets following their heavy first leg defeat in a viral video on Twitter.

After receiving over 2m views, Wednesday fans went back to troll the supporter after missing the game of a lifetime at Hillsborough.

“I hope they somehow blacklist you from getting tickets so you have to buy it of a tout,” wrote one fan.

Another tweeted: “You definitely had to wipe the tears away to record this.”

A third said: “Imagine missing that game for a few likes.”

But the fan – who seemingly didn’t rip up the barcode – didn’t seem bothered by the the never-ending trolling he was being subjected to.

In another video after the full time whistle, he said: “Thanks for all the nibbles lads see you at f****** Wembley I love my club,” while kissing a bottle of beer.

The fan hasn’t confirmed if he attended the game but he has continued to be slammed by fellow Wednesday fans on Twitter.
