    Good. Don't moan then. Christ on a bike. We'd have got rogered in that game a month ago. It's going to take time. It wouldn't have been a surprise if we'd lost the last two games even with a new manager all things considered. But in bugger all time he's managed to make us more resolute, harder to break down and at the same time actually look marginally better going forward. He's done this with 9 first team plauers out including 4 Internationals and had to use an aging winger in centre midfield. He's pulled in and used 4 kids put of the U23s. And we've kept 4 clean sheets. It's going to take time to undo the clusterfuck that was happening. Those players looked crushed a fortnight ago. Heads down. They can't be built up overnight. Though amazingly he's also managed to spark Jones, who I've been a big critic of to life. We're going to lose some games. Thats a fact. So get ready for that. But we'd be losing a lot more if this fella hadn't come in. Pigs, Carlisle and Cardiff. Three clean sheets. Two vital points and the next round of the cup. Would anyone genuinly have banked on that 3 weeks ago, because I bloody wouldn't. I'm I an easily pleased happy clapping twatt because I'm pleased with that point? I don't think so. Ok, I might be a twatt, but I'm far from easily pleased. But let's have some b'stard realism here. Jos has come in and stuck his finger in the hole in the dam! And that bloody God he has. We're going to have to ride some bloody rough waves in the next few weeks. Cling on tight. Ready for the calm waters of summer when Jos can really put his own stamp on the club. Fukcs sake.

    I popped into the Wednesday Tap yesterday at about 1pm with our lass and the little 'un. The barmaid had no idea we had walked in, the place was deserted and as i approached the bar she looked up and jumped out of her skin. Now i know I'm not the best looking on a Sunday morning but c'mon Miss! Anyway i ordered my first pint of Wednesday Pale Ale and i must say it was mighty fine. Reminded me of a blonde ale we supped in Caerphilly early on in the season before Cardiff away. Young 'un wasn't too impressed with the blackcurrant but it had been 0 degrees outside as we had made our way before parking in the South Stand car park next to Barry Bannan. Anyway i would just like to say how impressed i was with the place. Loved the pics around the place. There are loads more super McKee prints but i'm not posting anymore as they've all gone sideways? Must have had more than the one WPA Anyway it came time for us to leave so as i took our glasses back to the bar the barmaid was once again pre-occupied with being bored and looking down at her phone with her back to the counter. She caught a glimpse of my movement through the glass mirror at back of bar and once again jumped out of her skin only this time making me jump too!! It was like a scene out of Laurel and Hardy i tell thi. She proceeded to apologise and explain that the place is haunted and that only the other day she was stood on her own in there and two glasses flew across and smashed so we quickly legged it to Bradfield for some home made snap. I'll protect our lass any day of the week but faced with summat i can't see is a little unfair. 1-0 to the Poltergeist. UTO!

    Great to hear the lads story Spencer and good on you for posting it , In the past I have been a recipient of Owlstalkers generocity and genuine kindness even though to them at the time I was only a username so much so that it made a 18 stone ex bouncer cry (via different circumstances to Ricky ) , and i'm not ashamed to admit it , that said I know they will dig deep, for Ricky without any hesitation And my friend that is what we are and we always go the extra mile for our own in their time of need , I remember when I first joined the site some 6 years ago app , the Owlsman told me that the Wednesday family always look after their own , and it is so true Mate so very true ,we fall out we argue but we come together when needed And that is what matters most ,

    Can’t blame anyone for replicating our rip off charges , it’s quite clear we overcharge fans by a long shot , could stomach it if we were up at the top playing exciting attacking football but we ain’t. Disappointed with paying £36 but we started it .

    With no game last Saturday and only two loan-outs to keep an eye on I browsed the internet (like you do) for ex-Wednesday players - and to see how many of our more recent departures are still plying their trade abroad Bit of a work in progress tbf but I have knocked up a short list I do want to start on a positive note though, so it's congratulations all round to ... FRANCK BETRA The French lad who came through our academy showing bags of promise who then suffered a serious injury a couple of years ago? He's 21yr old now and after we released him over the summer he found his way to Greece where yesterday (after a couple of appearances as sub before Christmas), he made his full debut for Super League side PAS Giannina away to league leaders AEK Athens I guess we all wish him well for the future ... especially if he proves himself good enough to break into the French national side in four or five years time

    Just a few recent away games at Wigan, Wembley, QPR (tricky dicky on front row) Reading this season(coldest I've been in an age) with some of the lads at the Stain last week and finally the OCS appearing from a side street before facing up to the BBC on Bramall Lane which apparently never happened according to dear Geoffrey.

    Is it me or has his attitude changed completely since just about all our recognised first team disappeared in December. He is taking more responsibility looks more dynamic and pops up all over the pitch. Was he intimidated coming to a settled relatively successful team. He was also the only player who didn’t play in the play off final that Carlos played regularly, did he feel like an outsider. Anyway I think the current situation has been the making of him. Don’t think he’ll be intimidated when the other players come back.

    Firstly apologies if in the wrong section - mods please move. A lad I know has asked me to post this, basically he was born with a rare condition and he needs a bowel transplant. Whilst he is on the list and will hopefully get the transplant shortly, he is wanting to raise funds so that his wife can be by his side (he has to go to Oxford for the transplant) and cover their costs for the 12 weeks he will be in hospital. His wife is disabled and whilst the transplant and hospital care is covered, they still have a mortgage/bills to pay. Ricky is a massive Wednesday fan and I'm sure some of you on here will know him. How he remains such a cheerful chap after what he has been through is incredible. He's already got £2,000 of the £4,000 that he's hoping to raise, but if you could chuck a few more quid in to give it a boost, that would be great. The link to donate and his full story is below - my brief summary doesn't do it justice https://www.gofundme.com/4xdu2vc WAWAW!!

    He played really well other than the one header which he misjudged the curl on as it came in. That's hardly ground for bombing him out of the team. Strange that you don't want Joao dropped despite him missing the 2 easiest chances of the game (both made by Rhodes).

    £10 or £5 from most of the regular posters on here and it’s job done. This is all about supporting someone’s journey to remain alive, and around for his wife and other loved ones. Every faith that the target will be reached within the next 48 hours. WAWAW?

    I don't think anyone in their right mind honestly believes we are going to challenge for promotion this season. Next several months are about stopping up, building some momentum for the following season and freshening up the playing staff.

    Still on the theme of hot prospects who never got round to pulling on a (Wednesday) 1st team shirt ... DIOGO AMADO ... remember him? He was part of that unexpected (and IMO unnecessary) influx of fresh talent that greeted our return to the Championship back in 2012 Portuguese midfielder who had just helped his loan side (Estoril) to promotion whilst collecting eight U21 caps along the way Unfortunately things didn't work out Naturally enough, I'm gonna blame Dave Jones' all-round demeanour but 'homesickness' was the official reason given for his return to Portugal after barely a month's worth of pre-season training He was immediately snapped up once more by Estoril and spent the next five seasons as a regular fixture in their side Clocking up 124 Primeira Liga appearances and scoring 5 goals - he even cropped up once or twice on last season's Loan Watch (for the opposites, of course) Now aged 27, he's decided to try his luck in Qatar's "Stars League" by signing for Al Gharafa Currently mid-table after 12 games 'Our Boy' has been ever-present for them so far and weighed in with 1 goal There's always a chance the dreaded homesickness might strike again but I dunno, maybe a nice healthy bank balance is good for that sort of thing

    Just had a good chat with Ricky, What a truly insperational man and family. As the Bio on the donate page says, he has lived with various conditions since Just after birth and this really is his chance at a life which we all take for granted. With only ONE working vein this is really time critical, and he sees it as his chance and is under no Illusion what could happen. The accomodation provided by the NHS is not suitable for his wife, who is also disabled and tragically found out today also needs surgery but has postponed it to be with her husband when he gets the call. Ricky will have to make the journey with next to no notice to a city 150 miles away (my adopted home city) and pretty much leave everything for weeks of end. His intention is (subject to blood results today) is to have the op (also subject to a donar being found) and spend about four weeks in hospital. That’s just the start though, I know from my mother having a transplant it’s a huge undertaking, and months and years of being under constant doctor supervision. His wife, will be by his side for a week, then travel between Sheffield and oxford to see Ricky. Its his his wife who really needs this cash, Taxis and Hotels in one of the country’s most expensive city’s isn’t going to be easy, food and other items required for them will all cost. His wife requires a vehicle we simply simply do not have in my business but he has been in touch with One and hopefully I can help with a few bits also. He is extreamley greatful for owltalks help @OWLSTALK and says since this has been posted his notifications when a donation is received has gone mad. He has signed up to OT now, awaiting approval so expect to see him on here soon. he really appreciates it all guys and I am truly humbled to speak with him, also he keeps a ST going and we plan to meet at the Birmingham Home game. Keep donating WAWAW.

    £36. At Oakwell I like the way they've created a special A* ticket category just for us, it was the same last year - even Leeds was a category A with tickets at £30. I paid it last year, but I'm struggling to muster up much enthusiasm for paying that this year to watch 19th vs 17th...

    Stupidity at it’s finest. Rhodes’ goalscoring record is first class. Rhodes hasn’t stopped scoring because he’s crap, it’s because of the lack of chances. Okay, he should have done better the other night, however the kid is extremely low on confidence. CC never played him and the football we play doesn’t suit him. He’s a box striker, and we don’t supply him. The goal against Norwich is what he’s about, not big big boot up

    Got to agree. I spent a bit of time watching the whole Heracles v Ajax game from last August in which he played. I posted my comments regarding what sort of player he was in another thread. I think people are expecting a bit much. As I posted, he's an organiser, very much defensive minded regardless of what we are doing as a team and above all he is disciplined. He can get stuck in, but he's not Hutch. He's not going to take man, ball, Desso, shinpads and blood with his tackling. Take the goal he scored from 30 yards with a pinch of salt. Heracles were 4-1 up and hammering Groningen (I think). I personally think he will go about his business quietly and efficiently, we won't notice him on the pitch but the players and the manager will appreciate him more than anything. It is a step up for him, make no mistake, with no disrespect to the Eredivisie.

    I didnt want him. I thought if we did buy him he would do alright, (alot better than he has!) but i didnt want him, not really because of him, but i was happy with who we had up there. ive always rated Hooper, FF has to play and i had loads of belief that Joao would continue to improve, (with game time) Fletcher brings a wealth of experience from top flight footy and 2 days previous we had brought Winnall in who was flying at Barnsley. I knew we was short at CB, our full backs wasnt good enough for the way CC wanted us to play and we had no-one in CM to come in when Hutch was injured. this lopsided balance within the squad cost us big time.

    This one's for NorfolkNChance ... BEN SAHAR Israeli striker, brought in by Brian Laws as an 18yr old loanee back in 2008 (12 apps - 3 goals) Then like now, he was probably just another youngster to sign for Chelsea, get farmed out on loan a coupla times and then get shipped out In this case, his time there ended with a £1m move to Spain (Espanyol) A couple more loans followed - one back home to Israel (Tel Aviv), one to France (Auxerre) and then, then ... He was picked up on a free by Hertha BSC - managed by none other than our very own Jossie (small world, eh?) He was there two years but had another loan spell away before winding up in Holland (Willem II) He'd signed for two years there but was released after one and returned to Israel once again (2015) to play for Hapoel Be'er Sheva And that's where he is today, at 28 seemingly enjoying the most successful period of his career As a regular choice for the national side as well as joint leading scorer for side currently sitting top of the league Obviously owes an awful lot to Brian Laws then (... and Jos)
