    Sheffield Wednesday Reserves
  1. I do agree but how else can those fans express their dissatisfaction with the manager's tactics ?
  2. Carlos apologises to the fans

    Sadly for us to sack CC now would highlight a huge missed opportunity as opposed to having parted the ways in May/June time. NOW it would / will be much more dificult to find the right replacement to take Wednesday forward. Here's hoping CC will see the light !
  3. Whats have the promoted teams in common?

    The thing which creates winners or near winners is not an impressive squad but a settled squad - or a 'team' We have a great squad but, to me, it seems CC doesn't have any semblance of a settled team as he seems to approach every match with a view to 'what he has' He needs to at least have the spine of the team which can then cope with the necessary changes which inevitably result from injuries, suspensions etc.
  4. Chansiri's fishy business

    Correct, but they used to be very good with nice tender beef !
  5. Och Aye the Noo

    Burke is the only one I would be excited about !
  6. Grant Hanley

    Absolutely - Diver !
  7. Pocognoli

    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.
  8. Medical Department Sacked

    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.
  9. Graham Dorrans

    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

    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 !
  11. Time to replicate Brighton

    Should have added ' and those relegated from Premier League' who of course have the advantage of parachute payments !
  12. Time to replicate Brighton

    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.
  13. 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 .
  14. On our way..not.

    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.
  15. Westwood

    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 !
