    Just seen this on twitter that he has passed away today. For anyone who didn’t know, he was the terminally ill chap who climbed Mount Everest and put a United flag at the summit, despite being an Owl. I know there is a bit of a debate about minutes applause etc - but if anyone deserves one, he most definitely does. True inspiration and hero. Sheffield Football is United in grief in this, regardless of being an Owl or Blade. RIP.

    How about we get off both Nuhiu and Rhodes back . Unlike most of our squad they aren’t always injured and they are all we got . I’d love Rhodes to come good , not sure he will but getting on his back isn’t going to help

    Carlos said the fans had to back the players and get them going. Dave Jones said the players didn't like playing at Hillsborough Jos says-: "The fans come to us...we have to make the first steps on the field for our fans ..then the fans coming will give us the support we need" So there we go.

    We'd had heavy rain earlier in the day & the snow was settling on the surface causing the ball to drag. Other than that I didn't see it cutting up anywhere. The pitch is fine, three years ago the match would have been postponed or abandoned.

    Trying not to sound bad really, but all these minutes applause people try to do, for people passing or other reasons. I think its getting a bit out of hand, then people get upset/angry if there is no minutes applause when they wanted one. I think there should be one at the last home game of the season with there pictures on the scoreboard. Does anyone else have thoughts?

    Sheffield Wednesday have signed Heracles Almelo midfielder Joey Pelupessy. The 24-year-old Dutchman has penned a permanent contract at Hillsborough. A leader both on and off the pitch, Pelupessy began his promising career in the Eredivisie with FC Twente, where he made a handful of appearances after representing the club at youth level. But his potential came to the fore during the 2013/14 campaign during a spell with reserve side Jong FC Twente, who at that time competed in the Dutch second tier. His consistent performances in the engine room earned the energetic and tough-tackling midfielder a move to Dutch top flight outfit Heracles. Also capable of slotting in at right back or central defence, Pelupessy’s strengths lie in defensive midfield where his quality on the ball, excellent use of possession, strong tackling and leadership qualities have seen the Nijverdal product become a fans’ favourite at Heracles. This was underlined ahead of the 2017/18 season, when Pelupessy was named as club captain. His presence in the Heracles side most certainly coincided with a big upturn in fortunes and performances from the Almelo-based club. One of the biggest achievements in their recent history came in 2015/16 when they reached the Europa League, with Pelupessy a key operator in the engine room en route to qualification with a sixth-place finish. In total, Pelupessy made 119 appearances for Heracles after joining from FC Twente in 2014. Subject to transfer speculation from clubs all around the world, Pelupessy now begins the next chapter of his career with Sheffield Wednesday and is eligible to make his debut in Saturday’s televised Championship clash with Cardiff at Hillsborough.

    I'm loving what's happening at our club right now We're putting together a proper football club structure
  20. 14 points
    What the hell just happened? Neilson, O'Grady, Venancio, Nuhiu, Matias, Boyd, Joao, Clare, these players have given the club a massive kick up the backside, a manager who is the best thing since sliced bread, its lifted all of us a great deal, a smile on our faces a spring in our step, all in the space of 10 days, loving every minute of it. Looking forward to next season more than ever now cos if we've made this progress in 10 days what will we be like in a few months.

    So you weren’t there yet you start a disparaging thread on how the pitch ‘looked’ based on comments you ‘heard’on the radio .......... OT at it’s finest !

    Daft question to ask. I mean, why would he have? Only two seasons spent managing in the top flight - 1992 and 2007 - both ending in relegation. Warnock's reputation amongst top European club managers must be minuscule and rightly so. Embarrassingly parochial by the local media.

    It might look good when you're in the stadium, but when you are at home looking at it through the radio it's a bloody disgrace. Particularly when it snows.

    With the squad we currently have available any result is a positive. I just hope the squad can keep the fight that we showed on Friday night. It was such a pleasure to see a team putting effort in and getting stuck in after the shambles we have been having to watch for the past however many months.

    Went to the match on Tuesday rather than listen to it on Radio Sheffield and the pitch was looking great. There was snow on it from time to time which might have been because it was snowing.

    FA cup for me. Always the chance to win a trophy would come over anything else. I know the cups mean bugger-all to some folks these days. Everyone wants to be playing Man City and Arsenal etc etc. Wants our name in the papers. Wants the Match of the Day lads to talk about us. But for me. To see Wednesday lift the FA Cup would be magnificent. The FA Cup!! Magnificent!! To see a Wednesday Captain hold it aloft. (In blue and white stripes ) Well...I could probably die happy.

    I was talking to a bloke the other day and asked what his dad does for a living. He said his dad had sadly passed. I felt bad so asked him what he did before he died. He said he turned blue and mucked his pants. Sad.

    You are right on both counts - what i don't really understand is the self importance of people asking in the first place. I have a number of family members that have gone to Hillsborough for decades and decades - I would never dream of asking people (who have no clue who they are) to give them a minutes applause at a match when they pass away. Unless you have done something extraordinary for the club then the minutes applause at the start of the year is more than enough

    Characters like Warnock are great for football. Proper pantomime villain, to us, and unfortunately a dying breed.

    Minutes applauses are the grief 'selfies' of the football world to me Fair enough if it gives people some consolation after the passing of a loved one but if we're honest it doesn't REALLY does it? It's just like a selfie Modern times

    Evening ladies and gents, Well, the first new recruit to Jos's team, and a warm welcome to Pelupessy. So we now have 2 former captains in key positions on the field, Fred at CB, and Pelupessy in CM. Leadership on the field we have been bereft of. Let's hope their attributes as captains and leaders rub off on the rest of the squad. Fred, btw, is looking like a very good player marshalling the players around him in the defence.

    I agree with this, but you're a bit behind the times. The club have done the right thing by bringing in the New Years game minutes applaud for passing Owls. I too was getting tired of it, but the club have sorted it.
