    I'd even take Comrade Corbyn being PM if it meant us winning the league. Only downside is no more night games as lights would be off all over the UK.

    Election for me. Genuinely fearful of another five years of Tory government, and what impacts that could have on my job, my family and my child's future. Wednesday winning the league might give some relief to that, but it isn't going to feed, warm and inspire my daughter's future. That said...it only said winning the title...I'd take a Labour GE win and Wednesday winning at Wembley! Win, Win!

    Got to love the comrade Corbyn name now it's been clearly proven that the Tories and leave campaigns are both funded by Russian oligarchs and Corbyn has nothing to do with Russia at all.

    Seen a few negative comments about these two in the middle from the weekend and it's really frustrated me. We created more chances and were more entertaining to watch than most of the season and the two goals we conceded were calamatous errors from set pieces which had nothing to do with them. And yet this partnership gets scapegoated because they are both small players and not big defenders or tacklers. Lee was my man of the match. His forward runs are invaluable and also often make our crosses much more of a threat too because instead of just having Fletcher in the box, their defence suddenly has more to think about. I also lost count of the amount of times he nicked the ball in the middle and got us on the front foot. But because he's not a 'defensive' midfielder, people ignore that. As for Bannan, anyone with half a brain knows how good a player he is. As frustrating as Saturday was not to get the 3 points, there were lots of positives against one of the better sides in the division this year and Lee looking like his old self with Bannan in the middle was definitely one of them.

    I can see why you're a Wednesday fan then. Apart from a few brief forays in the UEFA Cup we've been safely out of Europe for 60 years...

    Wednesday winning the league for me. At the end of the day it doesn't matter who's in power none of the political parties have a clue about what the man on the street wants & quite frankly I don't think they care. For this election it's not so much a preferred party, more of a which party would I dislike the most & go for the other. Our choice is an idealistic terrorist sympathising clown who wants to take us back to the dark ages. A lying upper class buffoon or someone that wants to ignore democracy & re-run the Brexit referendum. What a stark choice we've got.

    Anyone around here that can ask 'what exactly has happened in the last 9 years that's bad?' is clearly walking around with their head stuck up their arse. There was a time when Sheffielders would bleed themselves dry rather than vote Tory or God forbid Farage. When people don't want to pay taxes you end up with no funds for essential services and we have a fifth of Corporations in this country paying no Corporation tax whatsoever, it's a joke. Is it a good thing that the NHS has sold off our Blood Transfusion, gathering, storage to the Americans who have since sold it to the Chinese? Is it a good thing that Branson is able to sue the NHS for £840k because he didn't get the contract he bid for? Is it a good thing that the Germans own 34% of what was British Rail and we own just 1%. Just like Brexit we have a large number of clueless losers who haven't a clue what they're voting for. We'll end up with a Johnson government, corrupt af and supported by the Nazi Farage. It's all downhill from here.

    It's not life defining but that dont make the pricing right .I pay 18 quid for a bottle of whisky if tesco suddenly start charging 29 I wouldnt buy it.now if they say but if you buy 23 bottles you can have them at 10 quid then that's not a bad deal for me but not so much for the guy who is only an occasional drinker ......so it's no surprise that a lot of fans who can only get to limited amount if games are now rarely turning up

    You would be closer to utopia than ever before. Boris means less holidays, less workers rights and you might get a pay rise to ten pound in five years. Then there will be the poo food and products from Trump and friends. Soon you will be lucky if you get two weeks holiday. The rules have already been rewritten. Wake up. Rise and shine Boris is coming to get you. Ba Ba Ba Corbyn runs the ira Ba Ba Ba.

    The main facilitator of sitting together is POTG. I can't state this enough. You turn up with your mates, pay on the day and sit together. We have deliberately killed POTG though disgusting pricing. I'll never back down on this, it's plain wrong. The sooner we all unite against it, the sooner we can start repairing the damage.

    Since Lees has been out injured the central defence has looked more solid than it has for 4 or 5 years the last time I was that confident in the back two was when Looven and Lees were in their pomp. Iorfa is the wake up call Lees needs as his levels have dropped in the last few years. For me based on performance not the persons name, the first two names on the sheet at Centre back should be Iorfa and Borner - Lees need to win his shirt back. This has been the problem with the team over the last few years players get picked based on their names instead of what should matter how they perform in the team. Iorfa did great at full back but since moving to centre back has looked like a star in the making we would be stupid to try and make him into another player when he could be fixture for years to come if he keeps up the level of performance so far.

    Or here's an idea since he move to central defence we have been very tight and not conceded many goals and he has looked like the find of the year his performance there have definitely increase his value as a player and to the team as a whole - why not call him a central defender. Instead go out in January and buy a box to box midfielder, just an idea.

    I don’t usually comment on politics in general never mind on a football forum but that is up with one of the most stupid posts I’ve seen on here. Im not saying one way or the other if I agree with the Tory bit, but what in God’s name has it got to do with a if a person can be a Wednesdayite or not. Ridiculous.

    Dodgy memories guys. It was Bannan-Lee in the middle in 442 that dragged us to the play-offs. Whenever Carlos deviated from that after December our results were awful. The exception was the 3-match ban for Bannan, where a Lee-Lopez pairing was tried (not Hutch) and we won all 3 games. The “Lee-Bannan pairing is too lightweight” has always been pure OT myth. The reality is it was always our most productive duo.

    How many of that 23k actually enjoy the match day experience and atmosphere? I and my son are two of that 23k and have not attended the last two games because we decided to do other things on the day. He is 6 years old now and been going for 3 years,the only reason I bought season tickets is because I wanted to enjoy match day experience with my son . It was the only way I could ensure having a seat for each game,as if I had to rely on having a " spare " 45 pound every other week then I know it would not happen. Anyway ,the fact is ,he enjoys the drive and walk to the ground,his pre match chips and drink and then the game starts. He used to stand on his seat and clap and sing,but even he said after the Wigan game,"dad,why is no one singing and cheering,it's rubbish can we go home." I know that if it wasn't for my son I wouldn't have bought season tickets and doubt if I would have attended any games this season,and I've had a season ticket for many years. It's not just the atmosphere and pricing that is wrong it's the product,"football",that is in decline . ps my son loves football,he plays for an U7s team ,watches it on tv and plays FIFA,just doesn't like going to Hillsboro anymore.

    Atmosphere apart - its a pretty poor stadium in this day and age. I know I may be in the minority but I would love us to move to a clean, modern stadium with top class facilities.

    Give us a winning team and reasonable ticket prices, the atmosphere will then sort itself.

    What exactly has happened in the last 9 years that’s that bad? I’ve not seen any difference in any of the public services I use, this austerity business is just a soundbite.. keep those taxes low is the way forward. Much prefer keeping my money than handing it over to the lazy folk

    Just throwing it out there. I think big Dom could do a job as a box to box midfielder a la big Carlton. Has the athleticism, covers ground really quickly and can tackle. End product would need work though.

    I thought it worked ok. Also Lee will get better the more games he has. I would like to see a mid 3 with Luongo. Would be fluid, attacking with all three fully prepared to track back.

    What abuse? If Rhodes has had any then I have not seen it. Yes he get criticised but that's part of job description of being a professional footballer. People are paying expensive tickets and seeing clubs most expensive ever signing not performing. Blokes on a reported £2m per year and doesn't look interested.

    Yep let's pay £47 a game. It's only £11 more.

    Exactly this. Luongo is our box to box midfielder with an eye for goal. Leave Iorfa excelling at centre half as he has been doing.

    For joe bloggs to come watch the game against Swansea in the cheapest stand (Kop) it would have cost him £36, it’s just wrong , people can not afford this or some cases justify it . £36 is expensive to be playing the blades never mind a club we hold no affiliation towards ! £25 it should be in the kop maximum for likes of Swansea

    All I know is that had Dawson conceded the goals Westwood has conceded in the last two games in the manner they were conceded... fans would be baying for blood. Oh, and some would be saying Dawson should have saved Blackburn's deflected winner too (no such critique for Westwood).
  42. 3 points
    This is unfair on Dawson. Last season under Luhukay our defence was an absolute shambles and constantly playing itself into trouble, and Dawson was facing more shots on goal than any other team in the division. Any keeper would have struggled to have kept clean sheets under those circumstances. This season in three starts with a better defensive unit ahead of him, he's kept two clean sheets and only conceded one goal - which was the controversial one against Cardiff.

    As most of you probably now, I'm not Palmer's biggest fan He always puts a shift in, but it's not enough for a modern day full back His defending has improved over the last 2 years, but he still does silly things If I was our manager, his position would be the first to come under review, I'd want a modern day full back who can actually cross a ball He gets into some great positions, but his crossing is woeful Having said all that, I thought he did okay today

    It would be helpful if you could make a list of everyone that in your opinion doesn’t deserve to support Sheffield Wednesday....colour, race, gender, nationality, political persuasion, religious beliefs, sexuality, any other prejudices that you have... and I’ll see whether I fit in.

    As with every single team selection, isolating individual players or pairings only tells a fraction of the whole story. Did Bannan and Lee perform well on Saturday? I didn't think they did. Lee was the better of the two, but performance wise, both fell well below of what we expect from them. That said, the task Bannan and Lee was faced with, was a tough one. Monk went for an extremely attacking side. Not only did he ditch the midfield trio he's tended to prefer, but he also went with two out and out offensive minded wingers. It really was a throw back to an old fashioned 4-4-2 selection...two out and out strikers, and two wide players instructed to get chalk on their boots. The issues with that? When you come up against a midfield trio as comfortable on the ball and composed as Swansea's, the midfield duo is going to really have their work cut. In modern day football, 4-4-2 systems tend to drag an extra body into midfield, either from the front two (a No. 10 or False Nine) or more commonly, a wide player (or two) sitting very narrow. We usually play Reach in a 4-4-2, and he's the one who naturally comes narrow to help out in the central areas. Bannan and Lee didn't have that help on Saturday, and in reality, were constantly chasing shadows from a defensive point of view. It was no coincidence that our worst defensive display, in terms of xG, happened on Saturday. Monk went with a plan to try and outscore Swansea, and to be fair, his plan should have come into fruition, if it was for an utterly awful display by our goalkeeper. Furthermore, the fact we played with two target men and two advanced wingers, meant we bypassed the midfield a lot of the time. We only completed 70 passes in the defensive third on Saturday, which emphasises just how direct we played. Bannan wasn't try to drop and link up play on Saturday, he was tasked with restoring and recycling possession when the ball was turned over in our attacking third. It's not Bannan's game, and that's why he wasn't as productive as usual. But, on the whole, the system allowed us to create our highest xG of the season so far, and so, what's more important? Our best player having a good game, or the team functioning more efficiently on the whole? Of course, the holy grail, is Bannan performing to a high standard AND the team functioning highly efficiently.

    Lee was good Saturday and showed signs of his former self which were so valuable to us. That said, Bannan and Lee didn't work 4 years ago when they were in there prime and playing well. It wont work now. When Sam Hutchinson doesn't play we miss him drastically. Myself I would still play Bannan out wide in a 442 think its his best position.

    Here's a better idea, Borner and Lees were first choice centre halves before Lees got injured. Why spend money if we can utilise what we already have. No need to try and be a comedian.
