  2. Honest effort from people paid obscene amounts of money to do just that and trying to win.
  3. If it's buzzing then you must have equipped said Rabbit with new Duracells!
  4. Buxton gent laid it all bare on the main George Hirst thread over a year ago when he explained that even before the whole thing blew up in public DH at a dinner one night had said to his entire table that "George would not be renewing his contract with Wednesday if he had anything to do with it" or words to that effect. Whatever the situation was, it happened before Chansiri slapped the ban on him playing.
  5. All.depends on our 'friends" at the EFL. Doh!
  6. Come on SO do us a back flip, not an ordinary back flip but a Back Flip with Glee !
  7. Curran was brilliant for us and orchestrated our promtion and subsequent rise,once Bannister was signed Currans days were numbered here,banno was quicker and sharper
  8. Goalkeepers: Under Contract: Cameron Dawson Joe Wildsmith Rumoured: Keiren Westwood (Offered Contract) Potential Targets: Bartosz Bialkowski (£1.5m - Ipswich) Quentin Beunardeau (£750k - Aves) Remi Matthews (£1m - Bolton) REVIEW: Dawson showed, in the first half of last season, they he is a decent lower Championship keeper. He won't make mistakes but won't pull of miracle saves either. His kicking needs serious work and Wednesday don't want to rely too much on him. He makes an excellent backup. Wildsmith is a League One keeper and would do well to head to pastures new at some point. Wednesday need a number 1 keeper urgently and have offered Westwood a new contract. If he signs it, he will once again be a top tier starter. If Westwood heads elsewhere, the Owls could target Bialkowski or Matthews who both shone in relegated teams or look to Portugal with highly rated Beunardeau. Right Back: Under Contract: Dominic Iorfa Ash Baker Rumoured: Liam Palmer (Offered Contract) Moses Odubajo (Free Agent) Adam Matthews (Free Agent) Potential Targets: Todd Kane (Free Agent) Reece James (Loan - Chelsea) REVIEW: Iorfa looks a decent cheap signing by Bruce and had an immediate impact last season. He looks like Bambi on ice, but offers height and strength. Behind him, the team only has Ash Baker who had a hit and miss first season in the first team. Liam Palmer has been offered a contract to compete with Iorfa and provide left back cover after finishing the season strongly. There are strong indications that Moses Odubajo has signed with the club after leaving Brentford. Much injured but talented, he could compete with Iorfa or play on the right wing. Failing that, Adam Matthews could be a back up option. Left Back: Under Contract: Morgan Fox Matt Penney Rumoured: Jake Bidwell (Free Agent) Potential Targets: Jay Dasilva (Loan - Chelsea) Achraf Lazaar (Loan - Newcastle) REVIEW: Left back is a serious weakness for the team that needs addressing. Fox hasn't performed well and Matt Penney started well but faded before his injury. It wouldn't be surprising if Penney was given a chance to win the starting spot this season and Palmer will offer cover if he signs a new contract. Jake Bidwell has been rumoured - a solid left back for QPR who could offer an upgrade there. Centre Back: Under Contract: Tom Lees Jordan Thorniley Joost van Aken Rumoured: Michael Hector (Loan - Chelsea) Julian Borner (Free Agent) Stuart Findlay (£1m - Kilmarnock) Jordan Willis (Free Agent) Chey Dunkley (£1m - Wigan) Potential Targets: Tomas Kalas (Loan - Chelsea) REVIEW: Wednesday have some work to do at CB if they are to compete next season. Michael Hector was a bright star but has departed back to Chelsea - his return would be an amazing addition. It seems all but certain that Julian Borner is set to sign, perhaps an indication that Hector is not coming back. Thorniley and van Aken are big question marks - the former players well in spells and the latter was a big disappointment. How much playing time they get will be interesting. Wednesday have been linked with several other players at the position but none as good as Hector. Whether he comes back to Hillsborough will be an indicator of the success of this transfer window. Wingers: Under Contract: Adam Reach Rumoured: Kadeem Harris (Free Agent) Stewart Downing (Free Agent) Benjamin Kololli (£3m - FC Zurich) Potential Targets: Rolando Aarons (Loan - Newcastle) Jack Harrison (Loan - Man City) REVIEW: Finally, Wednesday got some much needed pace on the wing after Bruce brought in Aarons last season. With only Adam Reach on the books at the position, this is one of the most important positions to address this summer. The chase for Harris, who left Cardiff, seems to be getting close to a successful outcome and his speed will be valuable. If he signs, Odubajo may play wide right with Reach on the left, but more options would still be needed. A return of Aarons wouldn't be the worst option although there are better options such as Kololli if Bruce has cash to spend. Although Leeds are leading the race for the Kosovan. Centre Mid: Under Contract: Barry Bannan Sam Hutchinson Joey Pelupessy Rumoured: Kieran Lee (Offered Contract) David Turnbull (£3m - Motherwell) Will Vaulks (Free Agent) Sam Morsy (£3m - Wigan) Josh Onomah (£3m - Tottenham) Lee Cattermole (£1.5m - Sunderland) Potential Targets: Ovie Ejaria (Loan - Liverpool) REVIEW: Barry Bannan will lead from the centre of midfield again and how he goes, as so often, Wednesday will go. Sadly Pelupessy hasn't worked out, unable to handle the physicality of the Championship so Wednesday will seek out new bodies in midfield to rotate with Hutch. Lee has been offered a prove it contract upon his long awaited return to the team. If he is close to his old self, he will be a great signing. Morsy of Wigan would be a great midfield addition, as good as Hutch, he can be the long term engine of the squad. Rising star David Turnbull would be an amazing signing but Norwich seem poised to steal him. Forwards: Under Contract: Fernando Forestieri Steven Fletcher Lucas Joao Atdhe Nuhiu Jordan Rhodes Sam Winnall Rumoured: Chuks Aneke (£1.5m - MK Dons) Sheraldo Becker (Free Agent) Charlie Austin (£2m - Southampton) Potential Targets: Eddie Nketiah (Loan - Arsenal) REVIEW: Striker is surely not a position needing adding to with the glut of options. It is much more likely that Bruce gets rid of a few faces. Fletcher was on form last season and should continue to be the first choice option, even if Jordan Rhodes returns. Fernando needs to find his old form next season although he will likely be under a long ban to begin the campaign. What is done with Winnall and Joao should be interesting as they could both be assets when in form. Current Lineup: Dawson Iorfa Lees van Aken Fox Reach Hutchinson Bannan Joao Fletcher Forestieri Estimated Final Position - 16th Predicted Lineup: Westwood Odubajo Lees Borner Penney Harris Hutchinson Bannan Reach Fletcher Forestieri Estimated Final Position - 9th Dream Lineup: Westwood Odubajo Lees Hector Bidwell Harris Morsy Bannan Turnbull Reach Fletcher Estimated Final Position - 2nd

  10. If that’s the case he should have stuck to forum posting like the rest of us football geniuses. I’m awesome at playing the game in my head too the reality is everybody else isn’t on my wave length and that makes me rubbish. It probably doesn’t help that I’m short fat and massively unfit too.
  11. Jeffers was a good player. More intelligent football wise then every other player in that team he played in. He just couldn't translate that to his feet or head whilst he had a Wednesday shirt on was his problem..
