It's getting a habit this innit?
Picked up from the training ground, anyway he's nice guy, down to earth etc... said he hopes to make the bench v Rotherham, another player who seems to really like Stuart Gray as well.
Said a few interesting things to me as well, reckons that loads of players will be leaving in the summer (contracts ending) and he reckons there will be loads of new faces coming here as well, he also said the he's heard the stadium is to be improved, now as to what scale I'm not sure but got some really good positive vibes from him today about the future of this club and he certainly seems to be looking forward to it.
Anyway he's a thumbs up for Owlstalk

(Getting Up early for Donny - for tomorrow!)
125 Years in Our Shadow #OLDERBIGGERBETTER
Give them credit – the Blunts have done well getting this far. Lovely Fans that they have :
A Football club formed by Sheffield United Cricket Club – to raise much needed revenue BECAUSE The Famous Old Wednesday Club had developed, and moved to, Olive Grove after decades of playing and SUCC creaming off income from important matches at Bramall Lane.
Without them life would have been SO dull. The likes of Sheffield FC & Heeley FC just didn’t do it.
They could even come up with original Nickname – Wednesday had been called The Blades for years – with a lack of imagination they couldn’t come up with anything original and for years were known as the “Junior” Blades acknowledging their status as Wednesday’s upstart noisy neighbours.
As it turned out they could not even get going without stealing a number of Wednesday players.
We all know THEY are the Pigs acknowledged in one other THEIR programmes from the 1960s
But we must be thankful. Without Sheffield’s Bottlers we wouldn’t have enjoyed some rare old battles during the years
Carlton puts them straight :
Boxing Day 1979
The return match in 1980 with Curran’s wonder goal :
The FA Cup Semi Final & Waddle’s utterly amazing free kick :
The wonderful 1990 Derby Double :
Not forgetting Wednesday’s 2012 Promotion season - #MINDTHE GAP
How many points ahead and games in hand??????????????
Not forgetting the contribution made by our Danny Boy!
Heres to another 125 !

I've seen a Wednesday victory!!
Thought it were a good win in the end, performance was a bit iffy but its the result that matters and thankfully 'we've' managed to grab a couple of goals which on the balance of play in the second half, 'we' probably deserved it.
Have to say though, that first half was garbage. Irvine-esque. Didn't win any of the second balls and Blues got in behind the back four too often. Thankfully, Loovens and Lees were on hand to clear up any danger. I have to say, absolutely love these two - proper centre halves and Lees is a much better footballer than I thought. Both were colossus.
Second half was much better, won a lot of the 2nd balls and played with a bit more of a purpose. Maghoma I thought looked much better in the middle when Coke was dragged off and 'we' actually got the ball to Nuhiu and May a lot quicker.
Got to give Gray and his coaching staff credit. You're lucky that as a bunch of supporters you have a coaching staff and group of players that will run through bricks walls for the club - and most importantly, they're picking up results too. Support 'em, get behind 'em, cos they're doing you lot proud at the moment.
Anyway, I'm off to revert back to a life of depression.
Up the Owls.
(By the time I had stopped cheering and got my phone out, the players had started to bugger off)!

Since the day he walked into the club he has acted with dignity and integrity.
Took the gamble on appointing Stuart Gray, someone who divides opinion including myself who I think sells himself short.
Supported the club, supported the manager with a generous transfer and wage budget.
Kept us prudent and within FFP rules, no wasting money and being reckless.
Into New Year and four points off play-offs.
Best Wednesday chairman in a generation.

Can we put the final nail in the coffin of this ridiculous mantra now?
Over the years I've really felt like WAWAW meant something.
Away support, Wednesdayite's Smile tickets, Owls in the Park, Community programme - all that is good about this club - all in it together to push us forward. Brilliant. We're All Wednesday.
Yesterday we were given the news that for our opening day fixture, the cheapest seat in the house for an adult would cost £39.
Initially, most people showed their disgust at such a price hike, and even most of those who somehow understood the pricing were sympathetic towards those who would no longer be able to go.
Today however, we've seen dozens of sickening posts that have well and truly dented the 'WAWAW' tag. They've not tried to justify the prices with logic, they've just set out to alienate other Wednesday fans.
'If you can't afford it, tough'
'You should have bought a season ticket'
'Go and watch Rotherham instead'
'You don't have the right to go and watch Wednesday'
'It's business now, if you can't afford it we don't need you'
'You just need to save up a bit more - it's only a couple of pints'
What sort of attitude is that towards your fellow Wednesdayite? Your fellow Wednesdayite who is worrying about not being able to watch the boys in blue and white?
It's been utterly galling to see so many Wednesday fans pull the ladder up and exclaim 'I'm alright Jack'.
WAWAW? Only, it seems, if you can afford to go the matches.

What a surprise I got, waiting at Law Bros fuel station to see it's Semedo! and what a nice chap he is in person too, had lots to say that were positive about our club and fans, he seems to love it here but he did say that it's looking doubtful for him to make the Fulham game but is hoping to be back for Wolves the following Tuesday.
Praised Stuart Gray too, said he's always around the players in training, called him a proper coach, and interestingly he also said the players only saw Dave Jones on Friday afternoon so that alone tells you something.
Can't wait for the pitch to be sorted out next season, oh and our new owners seem really good and the players properly met them at the Boro' game.
Thought I had to share that.

Right coincidence I was on Sheffield Train station too, some nutter came up to me and said Hi Milan and started to thank me for everything I had done for the club.
I just mumbled something and wandered off…. Why is it always me who gets the nutter?
