  1. I'm from the down the road in Banbury, I've got no links to Sheffield. No idea how it came about really, wouldn't change it though.
  2. I'd keep Keen around as third choice, with the intention being one of Dawson or Wildsmith could go out on loan and get some game time. Ideally one for the first half of the season and one for the second half.
  3. Happy enough with this, sorted quickly. We can now get on with preparing for next season.
  4. Just reading through, like most I generally only watch football where Wednesday are involved(When i was a kid i'm 32 now, i used to watch loads, The Premier League, La Liga, Champions League, Football League). I very rarely watch a Premier League game or other EFL games now. I watched Blackpool V Luton the other night and enjoyed that though. When I don't get to Wednesday, i'll pop down to my local non league side and watch them. It's not so much football I don't enjoy, I think its everything that its become in this country. The money (I don't begrudge the players that, if someone is offering them 100k a week they'd be mad to say no), this weekend it was all about the difference in income for teams dropping down a place or two. The publishing of league tables with the amount of money each club has earned over the season. The 24 hour news cycle, the twitter feeds, the culture of celebrity that its merged with. All things I've no interest in, the sport I still love, the business/money side and the constant hype and erosion of various traditions(FA Cup Final at half 5), to cater for overseas TV markets, that's what I don't like about it. At times it feels like the sport is secondary to things like Manchester United's latest training kit sponsor or the naming rights of their training ground etc.
  5. I think he made a couple of valid points in there, especially with regards to aspects of the recruitment. You don't finish in the top 6 two seasons running if your team is full of bottom of the half players, that was a stupid comment, the sort of 'shock jock' rubbish you get on Talksport.
  6. Depends on who the manager is. If Carlos was to stay, there is little or no point in getting wingers. Seeing as the midfield is generally narrow, with the width coming from the full backs. I think we definitely need another box to box midfielder, we really missed that position when Lee was out. I'd also get another centre back in to at the very least push Loovens. Two new full backs, an upgrade on Palmer to push Hunt and a new first choice left back. Personally I'd like to see a long term replacement for Wallace come in. We don't need huge numbers to come in, just a few bits of extra quality and competition. As the same time we could probably do with trimming the squad, in anyone wants our fringe players.

  8. Our time is coming don't worry about that, sooner or later he'll get one over on them. He's already seen more games at his age, than most of them will in their life. A blade down here? I know the town is going down hill, didn't realise it had dropped to that level already.
  9. I had that all the time in Banbury when I was younger, thrown in a few Newcastle fans and Villa for good measure. I'm sure your lad will be fine, least we've got some decent players now, it was Andy Booth and Ritchie Humphreys up front when i was a kid. I wouldn't swap a second for support one of the above clubs, the coming together of fans at The Millenium Stadium and Wembley shows how great this club is!
  10. Wildsmith 6 - Decent save in the second half. Thought he could have done better with the first goal. Palmer 6 Nothing majorly wrong, just drifted in and out. Sasso 5 Not his best game. Thought he should have scored from a corner, put his chance straight at their keeper. Semedo 7 Played well Fox 5 Get an extra mark for a block in the second half, which stopped them scoring. Mathias 5 Didn't really notice him until the red card, stupid challenge. Hutchinson 6 Couple of decent long range passes Jones 6 Tidy enough Lee 7 As you expect from Lee, good runs forward. Tidy with the ball, sets up a goal. Rhodes 5 Never really got going. Winnall 6 Took his goal well, good work rate. Wasn't really a game for any of our forward players, didn't really have enough of the ball to get them in the game. All in all a difficult game to rate the players really. For a few reasons it being a dead rubber, us having ten men and not really having the ball. Fulham created a lot of chances, but were wasteful in front of goal, along with some good blocks by our players it kept the score down.
  11. I'm stuck with zero tickets remaining, it timed out before it would let me add them to the 'basket'. So i can't get rid of them and can't buy them either.
  12. At least you didn't accidentally click on the Fulham Sheridan suite offer...i'm now stuck viewing that.
  13. I'd play him on Sunday, but wouldn't keep him beyond the end of the season.
  14. For the way we play or played last season Lee as the box to box player is vital. very intelligent runs from midfield, which allow space for others to move into and links us up well. Yet Forestieri can have one moment of brilliance and win a game for us and despite Rhodes, Fletcher, Hooper etc if we need a goal Forestieri is still the man we're looking at, so i'd give him the edge.
