  3. First there was the absolute 5-0 humiliation at Sunderland where the Wednesday players literally gave up. Second there was a 1-0 defeat at impoverished Shrewsbury Town which should have been 3-0 but Bowman missed two absolute sitters. Third there is now Wolves saying that they do not trust one of their decent young players to be placed under the "management" of Moore. Many of us remember going to the likes of Tottenham, West Ham and Chelsea in the days when we had a football team. Everyone who went there will know that there would be riots in the stands if they had to endure what we are having to endure under Moore. WBA sussed Moore out pretty sharpish. As a fan base Wednesday fans need top stop being so passive and give Moore sheer hell if there is not a resounding win against Plymough in a week's time. Enough is enough!

  4. Well done Moore, total and utter incompetence from the man. Every Wednesday fan can see he's our best wide player by a mile!

  6. Can't stand this self entitled modern day attitude. I went. When I buy a ticket to watch Wednesday, I don't do it on the proviso we'll win or even play well. You win some, you lose some. It's football.

  7. No way to spin this. Absolutely damning, and doesn’t matter if you rate him or not. A Premier League club thinks we can’t be trusted and are a waste of their players time. MK Dons apparently the more suitable alternative.

  9. I can't think of such an underperforming team in my time as a Wednesday fan. For me DC traditionally keeps hold of managers too long when it's not going right with the exception of TC, and he's already doing it with DM For all the bad managers we have had over the years DM takes the biscuit, at least the likes of JL and TP who were awful had previous success so you knew they had it in them somewhere. Moore hasn't done anything. I am not sure why somebody who has never done anything in football is so dogmatic about a particular approach to the game. Say someone like Bielsa who is very stubborn in his approach, for his flaws, at least has had success in the way that he can get a team to play. Moore cannot boast this, so why's he insisting on it? As a defender himself you would think he'd have more respect for the position than sticking a winger there. How would he have liked to be insisted to play the ball out by his manager? could he have done it? The main reason it's so frustrating is Bannan, Luongo, Windass, BPF, Palmer, Hunt, Hutchinson, Gregory, Paterson, Laing, Byers, Johnson, these are established championship players, playing a league below, for a team that didn't actually get relegated for the points they accumulated in the championship- They should be absolutely smashing the league. We clearly have players a level above against most of our opponents. It's down to the manager, he doesn't select or set up right. Us getting rid of these guy is the most obvious move for me because I don't think he deserves to be a professional manager.

  11. Tonight was rubbish but I thought we were comfortably the better team for a lot of the first half Human nature to get wound up and demand change after a result like that, but they happen to all teams every now and again There has been a huge improvement in our performances these last 15 or so games Tonight was just a blip UTO

  12. "Oh, you're back Stubbs. I thought you'd be a bit later than this. Bit early home for a presentation night isn't it. I thought it would be going on well into the early hours. It's not often the village gets to celebrate a sporting success. I thought you and the chaps would be out for a nice meal and a decent drink" "I did too, Sir. But alas. There was no presentation night." "No presentation night!! After beating the Miners Helmet to the Darts and Dominoes League title for the first time in 15 years" "No, Sir" "Well, why on Earth not?" "Because all my team mates are dead,Sir." "Dead?" "Yes, Sir. Dead." "What do you mean, Dead?" "As in. No more. Sir." "But how?!" "It appears they caught Covid sir. During last weeks final League fixture" "But how? Mrs Vulcan at the Beevers Teeth runs a tight ship. Doorman and everything. There's not a safer building in the town. Perfect neutral venue." "Indeed so, Sir. Infact they were asking for proof of a negative test on the door. That's why we were without old Double Top Ted. Had to bring young Hawkins in as a late replacement. " "Safe as houses then" "So we thought ,Sir. But what couldn't be accounted for, but which we subsequently discovered, was that a group of lads who usually drink in the Cretins Arms, who turned up for a session had done so with falsified tests." "Falsified tests? But why on Earth would anyone do that Stubbs! After all we've been through?" "Because there's some absolute morons out there, Sir who don't mind if they risk other peoples lives as long as they can get some ale down their neck and do a line or two off the toilet cisterns. After all. No one can tell them what to do and stand in the way of them having a laugh." "My word. What a stain on humanity" "Indeed, Sir. Indeed" SUNDERLAND -V- WEDNESDAY 7:45pm Thursday 30th December 2021. Stadium of Light. SUNDERLAND Despite having an outbreak of Covid in the camp Sunderland are only missing a couple of squad players for the game and look likely to be able to put out a similar side to the one that dismantled Doncaster Rovers at the weekend. If anything the Black Cats maybe boosted by the return of Carl Winchester who missed the Rovers game with a calf problem. WEDNESDAY With zero news coming out of Hillsborough it's anyones guess how the Owls will line up. The manager admitted on Christmas week that there were just seven players in training some days last week. Who they were remains a mystery , as does the likely starting XI. FORM TABLE Only Portsmouth , whose only dropped points were against 10 man Wednesday in a battling 0-0, are in better form than Sunderland over the last month. Wednesday however boast the longest unbeaten record in the football League.

  13. https://www.thestar.co.uk/sport/football/sheffield-wednesday/sheffield-wednesday-cult-hero-on-his-owls-exit-favourite-moment-and-how-barry-bannan-made-sure-he-hit-major-milestone-3506929 Little was known about Atdhe Nuhiu when he arrived at Sheffield Wednesday back in 2013. He was snapped up as a free transfer by Day after leaving Rapid Vienna, and all fans knew was that – at 6ft 6in – he was a bit of giant, and that at one stage he’d helped knock Aston Villa out of the Europa League. Jones called Nuhiu a ‘real talent’ that would give Wednesday ‘another dimension’. A week later he scored on his debut against Queens Park Rangers and marked the beginning of what turned out to be a long relationship with the Owls faithful. By the time he left last summer, the forward had racked up nearly 300 appearances in Wednesday colours and become only the second player this side of the millennium to score 50+ goals for the club The COVID-19 pandemic robbed the loyal servant of the chance to bid farewell to those that had chanted his name for the best part of a decade, but he still hopes to put that right at some point in the future. Speaking from Austria, where he now plays for SCR Altach, Nuhiu told The Star, “I hope that one day, when they’re all back in the stadium, there will be a day where I can come back and say a proper goodbye. That would be my personal wish - then I could really close my chapter as a Wednesday player. I’d really, really like to do that… “Sheffield Wednesday will always remain part of me… I played there many years, and you don’t forget that. Most of professional career was in Sheffield, so I’ll always follow them - last season my heart was bleeding the same way as the fans. I hope this season they will be back where they belong.” Nuhiu has enjoyed a good start to life back in Austria with Altach, scoring on his debut in the ÖFB Cup and then grabbing an assist a couple of weeks later as they picked up their first Bundesliga win of the campaign, but he admits that he would have liked to stay at Hillsborough last season before he made the move to APOEL Nicosia in Cyprus. “For players like me, and Kieran Lee, the contracts ran out and the talks were ongoing, but nothing was decisive. As a result of that, we all left. It was probably the right decision. “Sheffield Wednesday was always my first priority, but there was always a bit of hesitation and nothing concrete. And because of Coronavirus there were a few financial issues. It was not an easy situation.” But leave, he did. Drawing a line under what was ultimately a happy time in his career and one that saw him build up long-term friendships. He still keeps in touch with the likes of Tom Lees, Joey Pelupessy and Barry Bannan – and it was partly thanks to ‘Baz’ that he joined Marcus Tudgay on the short list of Owls with 50+ goals this side of the millennium. “We played against Fulham, and I scored a penalty,” he remembers. “I went up to take it as I usually did if I was on the field - I was one of the penalty takers. “I went there, and then suddenly Connor (Wickham) wanted to take it. I wasn’t too bothered, but then Baz came from behind and said I should take it because it would be my 50th goal. “I knew about it, but it didn’t come up in my mind at that time. So it was amazing that he remembered and then encouraged me to take it. He gave me a boost.” He’d have reached 50 without the penalty, of course, bagging his 51st – and final – Wednesday goal in the same game away at Craven Cottage, but it certainly wasn’t up there on his list of best goals. His moment of magic against Preston North End, his kneeslide in the snow at Elland Road, the limbs at Watford away. He’s got plenty of happy memories to look back on as he ponders life at Hillsborough – but for him, two really stick out. “I think Preston was the most beautiful goal I scored,” he said. “But there were other goals that were more important – goals that really meant a lot. Another one that stands out was my goal against Manchester City, because it was against one of the best teams in the world now. “In terms of moments though, there are two. One was when we beat Brighton away and went to the Play-Off final, that was amazing. And obviously the experience at Wembley – that was a feeling I’ll never forget.” And there are plenty of other moments that he gave fans over the years, developing a knack for popping up in the dying moments to rescue a point or earn a couple more. Now though, as the 32-year-old looks to keep that knack going elsewhere, his eyes remain on Hillsborough and the goings on at his old stomping ground. Once and always. When asked if he had a message for the fans, he replied, “I want to thank them for all their support throughout my time. I’ll never forget it. And now I’m not a player, I’m one of them – I’m a Wednesdayite. So we can support Sheffield Wednesday together. Hopefully one day I can have that proper goodbye.” Here’s to you, Atdhe Nuhiu.

He knows the club Why not give it John Sheridan? He knows the club Why not give it Ryan Lowe? He knows the club Why not give it xxxxxxxxxxx insert ex player here xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx ? He knows the club Then it would be Why not give Neil Warnock the job till the end of the season Give it Holloway till the end of the season Then we'd get "Paul Cook would jump at the chance to come" That's bad enough But then we'd also get stuff like.... Get Carlos Back Get Gary Megson back For months Months it would go on with some of our fans doing the above all day every day I 100% could NOT cope with THAT again

  21. I like to listen to the away commentary when we play away from home. Adds to the away atmosphere. Sometimes they are gloating and other times very biased but sometimes they make good points and it is interesting to see another pair of eyes perception of our play. Earlier in the season at Ipswich they kept remarking how poor we were and how the Wing-Bannan-Adeniran midfield was unbalanced. Or at Wimbledon when they kept saying how unsettled we were from crosses into the box. I know we managed to draw both those games and today we lost, but today the Oxford commentators were a lot more impressed: "The best team we've seen at the Kassam Stadium this season", and "this has the feel of an FA Cup tie with a powerful team from the higher divisions the way Wednesday are dominating the play". Luongo was particularly picked out for praise as being "a nuisance" in the way he kept winning the ball and when he charged down a shot in the first half the commentators remarked why the Oxford players couldn't show the same desire as Wednesday did. They also praised the strength of the Wednesday XI, singling out Dele-Bashiru and how he dominated McGuane, but also how we as a team seemed to hunt down the ball, bully Oxford and played at an intensity that Oxford were struggling to match. They bemoaned how Oxford like to pass short but in the first half were being forced to go long, where Wednesday would inevitably win the ball back in the centre and our 'land of the giants' (which I think was overstating our aerial prowess, but there you go). They came away from the first half saying it was the most Oxford had been outplayed all season and how lucky they were to go in at 1-1 and to survive the Hunt penalty shout (which they felt was a foul but he also made a meal of it). They described how Oxford switched towards the end of the first half to a 3-5-2 to try and match us, a formation Carl Robinson hardly ever uses apparently, and as a result the game was more even in the second half. Still, before the third goal they still felt Oxford were hanging on and one commentator said on 70 mins they would settle for a draw right then. Presented without much further comment from me, other than to say most fans on here don't seem to rate our performance as highly, and Dele-Bashiru seems to be coming in for a lot of stick on the player ratings thread.

I think it’s time to stop the negativity for at least 6 games, call it a truce or whatever but let’s just give our full support and see where we are are in 6 games time, we aren’t going to change so why not see if a fully supported DM can deliver. positivity going forward, anyone in

Stop over playing your part" "Ohhhh.....oooooh....tis The wolf.. moooon" "Good God" "The wolf mooooon..... this lunation, ugggh, tis heightened mi'lord, by the presence of Pluto," "The chap from Popeye?"

The planet of power and death I says!" "Get on with it crone" "You, you're not familiar with the old ways ,Mi'lord, no, no you're not, I see that now. You'll not be aware of the havoc this planet can wreak. Wreeeeeak havoc!" "What?" "The January full moon sits opposite Pluto in Capricorn, mi'lord, yes, yes so it does, the sun in Capricorn, the sun and moon’s light shine bright on Pluto—and that puts all of our fears, pain, and past traumas ...in the centre of the stage!" "What on Earth are you blathering about woman?" "It shines a spotlight , mi'lord, the Wolf Moon's energy highlights our deepest insecurities, power struggles Tis a full moon to accept surrender, because there's no easy way to meet Pluto's energy. In order to move forward , as survivors, we have to address issues that are buried deep beneath the surface!" "Issues, what issues?" "The ones you cannot face, mi'lord!" "If this is about Danny Batth going to Sunderland, forget it. I'm not bothered" "No, mi'lord. There are bad times ahead. Pluto. The wolf moooooon! A time of great shortage. For everyone. Of poverty....we all have to fight against it, to do all we can mi'lord. All we can...Pluto is angry about our avarice!!" "What can I do?" "A pay cut, mi'lord.

Here, hang on a minute! Turn here woman!" "No, mi'lord, I must leave. Before the wolf mooooon, shines its light on me tooooo. But remember...take less money and show your purity of spirit, and you might survive the smite of Pluto and the Wolf moooooooooon!" "Death. Crikey. Maybe I should take a cut. Hang on, that's a wig! Come here.... Good Lord......HARGREAVES!?!" "Mwhahahah! I'd have got away with it too, if I hadn't ordered such a poorly made disguise off Amazon" "FFS!" OXFORD UTD V WEDNESDAY ------------------------------- OXFORD UTD ------------------------------- Oxford United will be boosted by the return of midfielder Herbie Kane, who served a suspension last time out after he was sent off in the 2-0 defeat to Lincoln City. That was one of just a few changes Robinson made for the Wycombe game, and he should again trust his core squad despite the dip in form, with Cameron Brannagan and Mark Sykes expected to feature in the central trio with the returning Kane. The line will be led by Matty Taylor, who has registered 12 goals and five assists in 26 appearances across League One and FA Cup action so far this season. -------------------------------------- WEDNESDAY ----------------------------------------- Wednesday are still without several centre-backs, with Dominic Iorfa, Chey Dunkley and Lewis Gibson though they did welcome Jordan Storey into the squad this week after his loan arrival from Preston North End, and the 24-year-old could come straight in to help the makeshift back line. Midfield star and captain Barry Bannan was forced off last time out, but he is expected to be fit to start in the centre with the returning Massimo Luongo, while Nathaniel Mendez-Laing boosted his claim for another start on the left flank with a goal. Sylla Sow was afforded a rare start in that game, and, after finding the net in the first half, he could again be deployed, although the Dutch attacker faces competition from the likes of Callum Paterson,and Josh Windass. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- FORM GUIDE --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- OXFORD W-L-W-D-L-L OWLS D-D-W-L-L-W

  40. He's had a below-par half season (although nowhere near as bad as many on here make out), but he's proven in the past that he's a decent player. If we can get him on a free, then that's got to be good business in the grand scheme of things. There's no reason he can't find his form again and go on to be a good player for us.

  43. In general fans enjoy the Christmas fixtures and they are a tradition in this country. The only reason all these games are getting called off is because of the omicron variant and there is no sign that this will become a yearly thing. I’d suggest a more sensible idea to avoid all of these games would be for more footballers to go out and get the booster rather than sitting at home tweeting about idiotic conspiracy theories.

  45. Any club that does due diligence on where they are sending their future superstars are going to look at how our club is run and how the players are managed and decide there is no way they are going to loan us anyone. I don't think we would even get a tea lady on loan. It's going to be a struggle I think. Having seen the way we have regressed since Moore arrived the views will have changed from any positivity that may have been in existence in the summer. Fingers crossed cos we desparetly need an input in a few positions.
