  1. Thank you for what you did. Words cant express how greatful the family are with how supportive people have been and I know his wife, son and daughter in law are particularly touched. It's people like yourself that make horrible times like this more comforting, thank you
  2. Once again Hannah, thank you for what you did and being with him before we got there, it was nice to see he wasn't alone x
  3. I don't think many are aware, but yesterday, just before kick off, on the kop, my uncle, Nigel Goodinson, collapsed and suffered a catastrophic bleed on the brain. Paramedics were there in seconds and after treatment in hospital yesterday and today, he sadly lost his life with his family around him. All the family are devastated, but we all agree as a mad Sheffield Wednesday supporter, if he was to go anywhere it would be at Hillsborugh with his beloved Sheffield Wednesday. They pulled through and won for him as well. As popular as my uncle Nigel was, many on here may know him and will have nothing but good things to say about him. With the families blessing, I'm going to contact the club with a view to a minutes applause at 58 minutes on the clock at the Fulham game...58 being my uncles age. The family and I would be ever so greatful if my fellow Wednesday fans would join us in this applause for a true gentleman who died in a place he loved. Rest in peace uncle Nigel we all love you very much
  4. I actually think Nuhiu wouldn't mind just having the last 10/20 minute sub role going forward. When we play defend and time waste teams like Cardiff, his height gives us that long ball option when our passing game doesn't work. When we change to the long ball in the last 10 with him on, their defences don't expect it and panic a bit. Seemed to work yesterday. He just adds something we don't get from anyone else. A regular starter...no. Sub last 10...yes
  5. I'd much rather us go for it and show the will and desire to win, than get 1 goal and spend the rest of the game trying to defend it. Show some ballocks and crush teams instead of being scared to loose and end up with a nowt draw!...so frustrated!!
  6. Didn't he say he'd spend £300 million on us if it wasn't for FFP?
  7. IF we were a Watford or a Bournemouth I'd probably agree with the OP but we're not. With promotion comes the massive payday just like other teams, but what they don't have is a Chansiri and his John West friends behind him, that can help us compete with some of the big boys. Chansiri has put his money where his mouth is in a league that ties one arm behind your back. Imagine what he'd spend with the shackles loosened in the Premier League. True money doesn't guarantee success, but it did Man City alright. Premiership all the way and hopefully no looking back!!
  8. Yeah I know they lost, my point was that they played with freedom and were attacking, which other than last night has got them where they are. If we played the same with our firepower we'd destroy teams, instead of having to claw back a 1-0 or 2-0 first half deficit.
  9. I just think Carlos is so scared of loosing, he isn't prepared to go for the win. This 'we were unknown last season' excuse might be palatable if Brighton hadn't carried on as they left off last year, yet teams know what theyre about. I watched them last night at Newcastle and can see why they've done well. Always looking positive, breaking quickly and only going back when absolutely necessary. Totally different mentality than what Carlos is going for. Despite their loss I can see why they've scored so many and won so many, just wish Carlos would instill that into our players, but think he's managed to get away with the odd goal win that many times, he thinks it'll get us through the season.
  10. I reacon he's behind some signings and not others. Reach is obviously his baby, because you can't explain why he's getting picked week in week out. Although McManaman didn't do much for me today, all his other previous sub appearances created something- not getting starts...probably not his signing. Winnall...bright , energetic and creative, not getting a proper go..bet he wasn't Carlos's either. He's sticking to a core that isn't producing and making excuses to cover it rather than accepting we need a change in strategy and starting side. So frustrating he can't see what everyone else does!! Carlos seems very stubborn to me for an obviously intelligent man
  11. Absolutely spot on what they're saying on Sky Sports. Said the same thing before the game as they are now after. Carlos said to correct a few mistakes...no...change our style of play. Actually go to attack from the off, then sit back, not the other way around. Where have the triangles gone that turned defences inside out??
  12. Does Carlos not see how predictable we are. It seems he's so scared of loosing that he's not prepared to go for the win. This first half is identical to nearly every 1st half this season. Not a shot on target and absolutely no urgency to break fast and actually attack! MCMANAMAN on!!!!
  13. McManaman definitely shagging Carlos's misus...not starting AGAIN!!! Wallace is a great pro and has scored some important goals but hasn't quite been on the boil last few games. McManaman's come on and changed the game for me recently. Let him play and give us some pace in attack Carlos
  14. Yeah exactly
  15. The way we played in the second half shows to me that Carlos has the ability to fire the players up. What I can't work out for the life of me is why he cannot seem to do it from the off. By not recognising that our luck will run out (like it did today) and going for it in the first half so we're not playing catch up in the second, we've ended up loosing a very winnable game. I've said for a few weeks now that we needed McManaman from the start to inject some pace in midfield to create proper chances for Winnall and Rhodes, not the long ball scraps they're getting at the moment. McManaman came on after 64 minutes and gave us another dimension. 64 minutes too late. Either he's shagging Carlos's misus or he wasn't his signing and is trying to make a point, because why he's not starting I'll never know!
