  1. So, am I the only one...

    My first game of the season tonight and I thought we did ok. Not brilliant but not as bad as I'd feared. I thnk it's the best I've seen Reach play, he showed what he can do. UTO.
  2. I get to around half the home games mainly on a weekend when my lad can pick me up, and maybe 2 or 3 away games these days and I fully understand what the opening poster means. I left the ground so many time last season baffled at our tactics and how slow we seemed to start nearly every game at home. I was fortunate enough to be at Newcastle and that performance made my heart burst with pride and also showed what we are capable of, but the next game I saw we were back to slow and lethargic. Our players started as though they'd just played 90 minutes and had lead in their boots and my lad tells me that how we were yesterday. I've been going for nearly 60 years and I've got to say they were times last season when it was more down to my lad and grandsons pushing me to go rather than me wanting to and it was down to the entertainment levels we saw. I can accept we've have had far worse teams and players, that's not an issue I was always there whatever the league, but seeing some of the quality players on big money we have now provide us with minimal entertainment and hardly daring to express themselves can't be right. We all want to see a winning team but is it too much to expect to enjoy ourselves along no the way? I don't know if it's down to Carlos or if there's another issue within the squad but things are far from right and they need to change for me, hopefully starting next weekend when I'll be there clapping away and hoping the penny finally drops. Let's all have a great time as well as a good win, I don't think I'd need motivating to start on the front foot if I was on a few £thousand a day. Surely that's not too much to ask with the players we have at our disposal now is it? UTO

    The away kit sponsor. Just what type of seeds is it they sell? They don't look like Tomato plants. https://elev8seeds.com/strains/tangerine-cookies/

    The left one every day. That's a proper Wednesday shirt.

    The away kit looks ok, but that home kit reminds me of the worst kit I ever saw us play in. Terrible back then and just as terrible now, what on earth are we thinking about?
  6. Some people

    It might take me a while to complete it so it could be Sunday lunch before it's online. I've asked my granddaughter to provide a water station for me halfway down the hallway.
  7. Some people

    I'll throw down my zimmer and hobble a celebration lap to the kitchen and back and without stopping.
  8. bet were not having a new kit

    The long winter evenings must simply fly by.
  9. Top 10 managers in the EFL

    I'm not going to lie, I didn't enjoy watching us in a lot of games last season. but that wouldn't have been a problem if we'd been successful in the playoffs. But think Carlos and his team should and hopefully will take onboard fans criticism and will try to play more to our attacking strengths next season. He's got to start as he means to go on and try and reproduce what we had two years ago. If we can, we should still have a great chance of promotion with the players we've got, and playing more attractive football will mean a lot of Owls will cut him more slack. Either way, I think what happens in those first 2 or 3 months will define his future. UTO.
  10. Chris Wilder

    We'd definitely do better with Warnock than Wilder. The problem is I wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw him.
  11. Exactly! I can forgive a player who's obviously busting a gut but things aren't quite happening for him, but Rhodes hasn't shown anything in the games I've seen that makes me think it's purely down to confidence. He just didn't seem to be enjoying playing or up for the challenge, god knows what happened to him at Boro to set him back so much. It's not like he's a young nervous kid or over the hill, he should be in his prime. It's going to be a massive season for him next season. He needs to get fit and get off to a good start or we'll be waving goodbye to most of the transfer fee and he'll be dropping down another league.
  12. Huddersfield deserved to win

    We've clearly got better players, but the Terriers as a team were head and shoulders the better.
  13. Westwood

    It certainly would be. The best Wednesday keeper I've ever seen and we've had some great ones, and third in my best ever list behind Banks and Shilton. UTO
  14. Atmosphere

    It's hard to sing when we're all holding our breaths. It's tension that's all, not willful lack of support.
