    Sheffield Wednesday Reserves
  1. Brighton took him on loan from WBA during the past season. I remember his last appearance ( possibly ) for WBA was a televised match against Manure and he played, if not a blinder, a very decent game. His problem was that TP never ever rated him after he ( TP ) moved from Stoke and PL game time was negligible. He seemed to have done reasonably well at Brighton but though he's 30/31 I reckon he could still do a decent job for us.
  2. Sorry to say but this does look a bit like a scapegoat situation ! If there is any merit in it then fair enough but, to sack an entire medical team on the basis of 'what' ! Look again at Chelski where only one individual was the focus. I hope this doesn't end up costing the club big time.
  3. Sorry I don't have a link but there was an interesting and enlightening thread on OTIB (Bristol City Forum) concerning Scottish football - It is an interesting read
  4. I think the nub of the matter is that we need to sign players who can get us to the PL never mind what comes thereafter, or how old (though 30 ? isn't exactly antiquarian) If CC thinks he can do that particular job then bring it on !
  5. Should have added ' and those relegated from Premier League' who of course have the advantage of parachute payments !
  6. Early days I know but who do we see as the front runners and our greatest opposition this coming season ? Apart from those who came closest this past season, Reading, Fulham and Leeds, there will be the usual expected push from Derby but perhaps, more significantly, Villa and Norwich either of which may/may not be pressing hard.
  7. There is always the thing about 'specifically the top teams' but one can argue that the whole thing is about consistency over the season. All teams raise their game against the 'top' or ' immediate rival ' teams' so there is no point in grinding out the 'what if theory' . Equally, there is no point in reflecting upon the points lost against the bottom end clubs if we should, on form , have turned them over The average over the whole season thing is surely what to look at ! Also, no point in wingeing about 'injuries' without considering the 'injury' position of of rival clubs who may perhaps have been suffering huge injuries to their team OR who played us when we were equally without 'star' players .
  8. It is really just banter of fans across the country. Like Brighton fans singing something like "and we are going up and we'll win the cup" even though they were out of the cup ! Relax and enjoy the atmosphere generated by passionate supporters.
  9. Shooosh ! Let's keep him under the radar ! We don't want Chelski for example trying to prise him away as an understudy for Courtois !
  10. Thats the only thing which would mitigate an Owls loss as Reading 3 down at Florist and Town 4-1 down to Fulham at the last count. Hopefully we have time to get back in this game ! WE ARE BACK IN THIS GAME !
  11. Derby have nothing to play for and I think therefore that they will not cut it up rough if they are only looking forward to next season. So if we put in a decent display, as we have been doing recently, I can't see anything other than an Owls victory. UTO
