  1. Oh yeah, looks like it's nice then!
  2. Sorry Marco, wasn't deliberate.......
  3. Venue : Albufeira, the Algarve (where I've never been - is it nice?) Time: 3pm Saturday July 22nd Competition: Pre-season friendly Opposition: Vitoria finished 12th in the Portuguese Primeira last season, and our man Carlos managed them twice back when he was still figuring it all out. Will we have two teams, or will we get a clue towards The Team? Will our forward six become clearer? Reach, Bannon, Jones, Boyd, Winnall, Rhodes sounds good to me. So does Forestieri, Hutch, Abdi, Wallace, Hooper, Fletcher of course. And then there's the great Kieran Lee. And Joao (and Nuhiu!) I'm looking forward to this game and every game. Come on you Owls!
  4. Yes, Trumbull is next to Monroe. I work in Monroe in fact. And we still get to dig out from a few feet of snow a couple of times each winter. Where did you move to?
  5. I hear you Coorong Owl. I've been in Connecticut since '94 and haven't been to Hillsborough since '99 but listening to Player I still kick every ball (and yeah I miss the pubs too!) Owlstalk is brilliant, makes me proud to be a Wednesday fan.
  6. Field Mill, 3pm Saturday 15th July. Looking forward to seeing whether we can turn these over as easily as we did their neighbours in Alfreton. I don't think we've played them very often, I just remember an awful day around Easter 1977, our near death (div 4 at any rate) experience season. Queued for ages and got inside 10 minutes in and we were already 2-0 down. Next day though we beat Halifax Town at Hillsborough, 1-0, Phil Henson scored I think. And it's been a right rollercoaster ever since! Up the owls!
  7. Well I was trying to get to sleep one night and went through the Championship teams, and found it easiest to remember them all by region. Came up with: The southern seven (Cardiff, Bristol, Reading, Brentford, Fulham, QPR, Millwall (west to east there, my geography isn't too bad) The East Anglian two (Ipswich, Norwich) The Midlands six (Forest, Derby, Burton, Villa, Brum, Wolves) The Roses five (Blades, Barnsley, Leeds, Preston, Bolton) The Relegated three (Hull, Middlesborough, Sunderland The Mighty Wednesday. For top six I worry about Reading, Fulham, Norwich, Hull, Boro, Sunderland. For some reason I can't see the Midlands teams featuring. I think it's a great division, really interesting this season.
  8. Anything to worry about here? Cardiff, Bristol City, Reading, Brentford, Fulham, QPR and Millwall. Last season we lost at Reading, won at QPR and drew at the rest (I think). If we want top two are we worried about any of these?
  9. E for B and Roger Wylde
  10. Don't worry, about a thing, 'cos every little thing is going to be alright. This is my message to you ooh ooh. Carlos is a clever manager, and the players (very good players too!) like him. I think that keeping it all together will lead to further imrpovement.
  11. I think if CC gets replaced, the new guy will be someone we've never heard of. Like CC was.
  12. Good! That's calmed my nerves a bit. Come on you blue and white wizards! WEDNESDAY!
  13. What's the away goals rule in the playoffs? Would 1-1 after 90 mins put us out?
  14. JR will be rested, and yet we will score..... that's what I reckon.
  15. That Wednesday team for the Albion game - Hell Yeah! That mid-eighties team was fabulous.
