  1. Depends if you mean Kieran lee or Kieran lee. Both are pretty good 'box to box' so I'm told! joking aside, not my favourite ever player but what we need is a leader and energy so I would go with Carlton palmer. being ultra critical I feel this team is lacking leaders.
  2. You fell into the Jocks trap there!
  3. I think I was at another game. He was poo , looked dodgy everytime he got the ball.
  4. There would be no better team to beat but no worse team to lose against.
  5. It all seems very strange how he gets injury after injury and never actually gets fit enough to make the match day squad. Not sure he even plays U23 matches for match fitness?
  6. He came with a reputation as a goal scoring winger but seem recall him missing a sitter on his debut against Bristol city and, other than his goal at Leeds, he never seemed to show any sort of form from then til he got injured. If fit he could be extremely useful to us in the run in but can't see him being match fit. Is there any update on him at all? Does Carlos even get asked the question in press conferences?
  7. Went in the home end last season with my father in law who supports Forest. Was the hardest 90 minutes I've had at a football match trying to keep quiet. Kept my cover until after the final whistle when the players were walking back to the tunnel after going over to the away end and started to clap. Turns out there were loads of other Wednesday fans in there waiting to clap them off as well. Was ok cos the forest fans had long gone!
  8. That caller after Carlos was so bitter it was unreal. Why are the likes of Barnsley and Rotherham fans so obsessed with us that it takes over their lives?! They both really hate us when we couldn't really care less about them.
  9. Me, my dad and uncle take it in turns to drive from Barnsley. We always park on that estate up harries road opposite the park near forty foot. We drink in the ground and watch whatever match is on. Nothing exciting but been going with my dad for 30 years and I enjoy that father and son time we have. I'm hoping to take my 2 daughters to their first match this season to continue the tradition.
  10. We have a shocking record against Derby. Having said that I have been to Derby 4 times and not seen us lose! Went in 2000 when we drew 3-3 (still having therapy for this one), 2006 when we won 2-0 last match of the season (incidentally up there with my best away days), cup match 2008 2-2 and then epic away day on opening day in 2012 when we drew 2-2 and I was extremely drunk! need to beat them cos I hate how they seem to copy our songs and also now sing those awful nananana ooooooohhhh f*****g songs!
  11. Was that the match they were appealing for handball every 2 minutes! Cue thousands of Wednesday fans shouting 'handball' everytime we touched the ball!
  12. Was that the 'handball' match? If so, it's up there with my favourite away days. But any away win at Barnsley is my favourite!
  13. Family tradition. I didn't have a choice and wouldn't have it any other way. Despite not living in Sheffield my dad's side are from Sheffield and it's passed on generation to generation. My grandad was, my dad is, I am and now my daughters are. You don't choose, you are chosen. You belong.
  14. Best atmosphere - either Derby 2005 (last match of the season, 5,000 strong and won 2-0), Derby (first match back in championship, 6,500 wednesdayites and drew 2-2), forest 1992 (won 2-0 on route to European qualification. Wednesday fans all over the ground) Best result - Barnsley 0-3 (2006) & Forest 0-3 (2016) Best ending at an away match - Derby 2-2 Reda in the last minute - cue 6,500 bouncing Wednesday fans. Worst result at an away match - Arsenal 7-1 (1992) Coldest at an away match - Bolton (Boxing Day late 90's) Worst experience at an away match - pigs 1991, right hard fans kicking the car when they found out we were Wednesday. I was 11, well done pigs me and my dad really wanted it with you! Derby 2000. 3-1 up in last minute and throw it away to draw 3-3. To this day I say that match relegated us, we lost hope after that.
  15. Arsenal was 7-1 but agree that was a long journey home. Think they scored 6 in about 20 minutes.
