  2. Wake me up in August please.
  3. Have Grimsby still got that portable stand? If they have then that's my choice.
  4. Heard away fans will be placed in the Look Local stadium in Stocksbridge. SAG still concerned with close proximity of away and home fans and have asked for half of Sheffield to be netted over.
  5. This. Although I'm not sure what you'd call the marketing tactic behind the shirt's still being priced at £55 a pop a couple of weeks before we get a new one
  6. Looks like a lot of people haven't renewed judging by the number of seats that have become available around my area in the North.
  7. Rotherham fans are a strange bunch. They have no qualms with other born and bred Rotherham people supporting Leeds, Sheff U, Man U etc. But Rotherham Owls are seen as the spawn of Satan. I can count on one hand the number of real Rotherham fans I know that have season tickets, yet I find it's the ones who don't go or have a 'second team' that hit you with the 'you should support Rotherham because you're from Rotherham' stick. After our play-off defeat, a lad in our local had a few pints and decided to confront me and tell me "I should support Rotherham because I'm from here". I asked him how many Rotherham games he had attended in the last season and his response was "none, because I can't afford it." Instantly put him in his place considering I attend every SWFC home and away game and this flour head is giving it the big 'un when he doesn't bother going himself. We aren't Man United. You don't support SWFC because you think we are going to win the Premiership and be on TV every Sunday. There's normally family ties involved.
  8. Netting off the entire South and North stand to prepare for the visit of 15 Millwall fans next season on a Tuesday night.
  9. Can someone tell me why all football league clubs have to use the same web platform?
  10. Still undecided on Carlos but the below doesn’t convince me that replacing him is the way forward. David Wagner – unlikely with teams like Dortmund sniffing around him, but he’d be my number 1 choice. Nigel Pearson – more realistic and obviously a SWFC legend. Uwe Rosler – really impressed with what he’s done with Fleetwood. Aitor Karanka – got Middlesbrough up but is he really any different to Carlos? Roy Keane – couldn’t think of anyone else. Probably only Wagner and Pearson on that list that I’d be happy with.
  11. Alan had a dream...
  12. I hope that, given a full season, Reach can live up to his price tag and show us what he can do. At the minute, I’m struggling to see his potential. It’s like Carlos (or whoever is in charge of recruitment) has a set mould of what a winger should be like. Top priority for me would be to sign at least one pacey winger. It gives us an alternative option and you only have to look at teams like Fulham, Reading and Huddersfield to see their worth. Technical wingers like Wallace and Reach are nice to have, but a winger with pace and acceleration, enough to get the ball past the defender to deliver a crucial cross, is what we are crying out for.
  13. Is this a wind up? Champions League to Championship.
  14. I've always said I just haven't been to Bolton enough times...
  15. The way Huddersfield played quietened the crowd - exactly what Wagner said he was going to do pre-match. There were times when it was rocking, but it wasn't consistent like last year against Brighton. The reason for that? Excitement and was replaced with nerves and expectation. The Kop for Huddersfield's first penalty was intimidating, then after we missed the nerves set in and it was like we'd just accepted it wasn't going to be our night.
