  1. Much stronger position. Dont think Derby or Fulham are consistent enough or resilient enough to break into the top 6. All 4 of the current play off occupants are remaining consistent. Definitely wouldn't rule out one of the 4 knocking either Newcastle or Brighton out of the top 2.
  2. We won. Look at the crazy scores across the division tonight. It's reached that time of the season when sides like Blackburn and Wigan start fighting for their lives. Mid-table sides like Cardiff play without pressure or fear and can go to Derby and score four. Whilst we can criticise Carlos for being too cautious at times, the defences of Derby and Fulham are what's stopping them from making the top 6.
  3. Kitftenbeld on Fox
  4. Seen him twice now. Very assured down at Bristol and then again tonight. He looks like he's been in the team/squad for ages. Not afraid to get forward, mobile, defensively sound. bargain
  5. He wants to play every minute. He's desperate to have the ball, desperate to score goals. No problem from me
  6. Westwood 7 - So comfortable and such safe hands. Hunt - 7 - Solid against their biggest threat, fantastic cross. Fox - 7 - Rarely ruffled, defends properly and looks to attack. Loovens - 8 - Great leader, great interceptions, cool and calm again. Sasso - 7 - Still worries me but I don't know why as he's done well since coming in. Hutchinson - 8 - Never has a bad game, so much more bite than Jones, reads it so well. Bannan - 6 - Didn't turn up tonight, tried as usual but didn't happen. Wallace - 7 - Did ok again, some clever touches and positive intent. Forestieri - 6 - Started well, unlucky on a few occasions but uncharacteristically wasted the ball as well. Rhodes - 7 - Bought to score. Give him service and he will. Plenty more to come. Winnall - 8 - Tireless, desperate to perform. As with Rhodes, deliver crosses and he'll deliver goals. Delighted with all three subs. Reach was superb, Abdi looked comfortable and is starting to get a look in. And been saying it for a while; would love McManaman to get a start, he always pushes us upfield and looks dangerous.
  7. Superb after coming on. Most positive I've seen him
  8. I am delighted to say that, after the criticism I've levelled at him lately, Hunt was excellent tonight. Pushed forward, tremendous cross for the goal and also defended much better tonight and against their biggest threat in Keita.
  9. I think a Huddersfield win. The way they played the other night gives me the impression they won't fall away whereas I'm not as convinced by Leeds yet as many people appear to be. Still think we'll overtake them.
  10. It's Sheffield Wednesday the club we love. The club we've stuck with through thick and a lot of thin. I could just about understand if we were 3 down and you turned off in frustration knowing we had lost. But winning away from home albeit playing poorly? Come on! Weve witnessed far worse and lost over the past 20 years and not had this kind of reaction. Constructive criticism is fine and welcome but I'm afraid your attitude is just childish and attention seeking.
  11. Agree with a lot of what's already been said..it's our weakest position and I don't think either are good enough for promotion contenders. However I'd definitely be playing Palmer every week over Hunt if they were my two options. I just don't rate Hunt in the slightest whereas I find Palmer to be a mediocre Championship full back.
  12. Westwood - 7. Little to do. Did it well. Hunt - 2. Dreadful. Just boots it out of play and gets beaten to easily. Palmer every day for me. Pudil - 5. Must be one of our slowest ever players but did at least battle. Offered nothing offensively. Sasso - 6. Tried hard and tried to be positive but looks an accident waiting to happen. Loovens - 7. Played well considering the defence he was marshalling tonight and came through it with a clean sheet. Jones - 5. Played well at Bristol City but really lax tonight. Gave the ball away and struggled to win it back. Bannan - 7. Not at his best but he tries to make things happen and was at the heart of our only good spell between 30-45 mins. Wallace - 6. Did Ok and good run for his goal. Surprised he was replaced early. Reach - 6. Did some good things, defended well and looked decent in patches but still gives it away criminally at times. Forestieri - 7. MOM. His passion and effort alone win him MOM. Must be an absolute pest to play against. Rhodes - 5. Isolated and needs better service but not his night tonight. Good assist and wins clever free kicks. McManaman - 6. Lively for 10 mins but then had to sit behind the ball which isn't his game. great to see both Abdi and Semedo for different reasons.
  13. It was 3 points away from home in the Championship. Yes it wasn't pretty, yes we shouldn't have been hanging on but we've taken the points and a clean sheet without Lees. 2 home games now to produce some more adventurous football. I get the feeling tonight's objective was to return to winning ways no matter what and we've done that.
