Sheffield Wednesday fan who ripped up his ticket after team lost 4-0 in first leg goes viral after stunning comeback win
A Sheffield Wednesday fan who ripped up his ticket for his side’s play-off second leg against Peterborough has gone viral following their astonishing comeback.

But the Owls staged an incredible turnaround at Hillsborough on Thursday evening.
Leading 4-0 after 90 minutes and 5-1 after extra-time, they booked their spot at Wembley with a 5-3 victory on penalties.
And the result brought about the re-emergence of a clip from Wednesday fan Josh Jackson ripping up his ticket after the first-leg loss.
He can be seen tearing up the paper before putting two fingers up to the camera.
It now looks like a foolish decision given the breathtaking second leg.
But he took it all in his stride when one social media user asked: “How are you feeling now mate? ”
To which he replied: “On top of the world.”
Reacting to the original video, one person responded: “Live and learn. It’s a long journey.”
