  1. Scored 50 goals while he’s been here. Barely missed a game through injury, when every player around him was out for months. Never complains or gets involved in any controversy, on or off the pitch. Gives 100% every time. We will not sign a striker that is anywhere near as capable or genuine and committed as the big man. I’m ready for all the smart arse remarks, but think about it. We ain’t going to sign anybody better than him. FACT.

  2. It’s not that strange. For some reason we dominated Forest that first half and spent a high proportion of it in their half. Fletcher was playing at the side of Rhodes which gave us some mobility and stopped their defence pushing too far up the pitch. Because we played in their half a lot we put a lot of crosses in and Rhodes was actually in the box , not 30 yds away. Reach put some great crosses in from the right hand side. Rhodes is a penalty box player. Outside the box he is too slow , from the halfway line he needs a bus to ge

  6. Good enough for who or what exactly? We are Wednesday 12 points adrift at the bottom of the table. We have wasted £100m and don’t even own our own ground. We have a relegation scrap on our hands.

  13. He should have been gone after the Norwich episode. Said it then and said it for the last two years. Anyone thinking different needs to have a look at themselves. NO PLAYER is bigger than our club and trouble follows him around like a bad smell. He will not be missed average at best now when and due to injury If he plays. He must have missed 50% of the games whilst he was with us. In my opinion good riddance. Edit (Watford or anyone you are welcome to him)

  14. The reactions in this topic show that fans will accept any old poo as long as it's done with a love heart hand gesture and a picture of a cat wearing a Wednesday shirt on social media. Not only will fans accept it, they'll pay for it. Several hours work wages to pay to be there in the hope of seeing the love heart hand gesture come out. Forget the performance, forget it all, just show me a smile please darling.

  18. I do find Joe’s last tweet about alerting availability a bit ridiculous. I’m sure a player’s agent will make damn sure clubs know he’s available if likely to move. The notion of doing it on the sly with no-one knowing is rather silly.

  19. Given our position with P&S, we were always going to have to let some of our higher earners leave, unless they were willing to sign on reduced terms. It seems that neither Fletcher nor Nuhiu were happy with the terms on offer, so we have to look elsewhere. As for Forestieri, he's been publically called out by a teammate for slacking in training, so I can't imagine we were too keen to give him yet more money for more of the same. A parting of the ways makes sense in that instance. We just have to hope the recruitment team team can bring in the kind of pla

  23. In all my time supporting Wednesday ive Not known the fanbase be so split over a player. The thing is at least many of our fans, myself included, can see what he brings to the team. The same CANT be said for Rhodes - I don’t know a single fan that sings his praises. And yet, he is still here

  25. Hello fellow wednesdayites, I've just created a new startup providing FREE football wallcharts. Website is http://www.wallcharts360.com or you can request a full quality version directly using this Request Form. I've made them for all 92 football league clubs, but really I've made them with Wednesday fans in mind. We do ask for donations which will be split 50% to Mind charity and 50% to running costs. No obligation whatsoever. Hopefully I'm alright to post this in the matchday forum... WAWAW

  27. Let’s be honest, our business so far has been encouraging. The problem is the lack of it. Who replaces Bannan if he gets injured? We’re five years on from the play offs and, still don’t own a decent left back. Penney is very much a prospect but, a complete novice at this level. 1 first team striker on the books. How many other clubs in the division are in that boat? 2 goalkeepers fighting for the number 1 shirt, neither of which would be number 1 anywhere else in the division. Nobody really knows the in and outs of the club so, it’s hard to

  28. In terms of a competitive starting eleven, I would say we have two blocks in place which are pretty decent for this division. Iorfa, Dunkley and Borner are a solid trio, especially if Borner can get back to that early season form. Don’t think we will need to improve on that. Then the middle three, Luongo, Brown and Bannan are as good as anything in the division, and can give us balance and control. Originally I thought we’d bring in a proper defensive midfielder to take over from Hutchinson, but I don’t think Monk sees it like that. It looks as if that job will be given to Luongo, who while

  37. Think you need to stop watching dvds of the wembley play off season because since then FF did flip all for this club. A player who has wasted his talent and lost what should have been his best years in controversy and mediocrity. Think your head needs the wobble to get in the world at present not 4 years past.

  39. I can't believe we're only 5 days away from the start of the season and we've got one single striker to rely on to shoot us to success and to make matters worse that striker isn't very good at it. Top that all off with a minus 12 points deduction and the outcome for the forthcoming season is plainly obvious. We know that Monk is inept but surely even he can see the outcome. What happens if Rhodes picks up an injury in training this week? If he's confident of getting Wickham and Windass in to the club i'm sure it would have been done by now or is he prepared to hope that Rhodes stays fit all se

  41. The thing I like about Jeff Stelling is that he understands the fans of lower league clubs love the club for what they are, knowing in most cases they are never going to win a major honour. When other pundits discuss clubs outside the premiership in most cases it comes across as a bit patronising.

  44. By costing us now as you put it , it’s not in the past . By being not as stupid as before doesn’t mean he deserves credit . We are probably going to end up in league one , which is laughable with the amount it’s cost to watch . I’m positive with the type of player we are now going for , but Chansiri is and always will be the worst thing to ever happen to the club .
