  1. Maybe if he was given massive Bonus incentives, then I wonder if he could be persuaded to take on a Project like Sheffield Wednesday??? Just shows how the appointment of a decent manager like "Steve Cooper" at Forest can Quickly change the fortunes of a club. I stand to be proven Wrong! But just can't see anything positive happening under Darren Moore.

  2. I want all Wednesday players showing this passion....I want them to be upset at being taken off or loosing their place!! Tactics or not...it's good to see. Better than ok boss that's another 5k a week anyway. (or whatever) Obviously there's competition for places now in that midfield. And I want the best player who wants to fight for that shirt playing!! (Wether he should have been taken off is a separate topic!!)

  3. For both teams that have come to Hillsborough in the league so far to set up how they have it clearly is a problem, and one that started well before this season. I mean how else would Portsmouth know that they’d get joy from overloading our flanks? Charlton Saturday was one of the most bizarre games I’ve seen. Every time Charlton had the ball it was effectively… Johnson vs their Right Back, Right Winger & Right Central Midfielder. Hunt vs their Left Back, Left Winger & Left Central Midfielder. Vaulks, FDB & Bannan vs their Sitting Midfielder. Who still managed to act as a pivot and switch play unchallenged. Only when Byers & Bakinson came on did the balance shift. For teams to come and dedicate their gameplan to exploiting our wide areas, I can’t see how Moore can so easily downplay it.

  4. Moore out, he puts out a team to defend today, this isn’t a new thing,he is very limited in his knowledge, he is an assistant manager and nothing else! This is no knee jerk reaction, I have seen enough, I have thought this since the Championship when we had no fight And yes, I have no idea who to replace him with, just get him out!

  5. All played each other over the past 4 days. All top six contenders. All won one and lost one to each other. Only one fanbase however has completely lost its shxxt and is letting its knee jerk, small minded sense of entitlement run riot. A fanbase who include a fair few who after one defeat, starting panicking, calling for the managers head and generally pontificating like drunks in Wetherspoons at 11 oclock. Losing sucks. But it happens a lot. Grow up.

  6. We consistently get out worked and out fought Inferior players dominate the ball in this 3-5-2 system Our defence looks weaker than ever, despite further investment in the summer Darren, the problem just might be you

  7. Week in week out we read articles and reports that the support we give the team especially away from Hillsborough is exceptional for League 1 and yes it is without doubt we have some of the best supporters outside the Premier League. But I can’t help feeling that all the effort and the cost of traveling to places like Peterborough on a Tuesday night is not fully appreciated by the management of Sheffield Wednesday. We travel miles to see our talented squad play attacking fearless football and cause our opposition problems from the kickoff but repeatedly the team selection and playing style just infuriates the fans. Yes he’s a nice bloke but his failure to learn from his mistakes is beginning to make some fans question if we will ever get out of this league under his management. As a lifelong supporter I want to see the team set up to attack and that doesn’t include having 5 players at the back so come on Darren recognize that you have one of the best squads on the division and your defensive tactics are now starting to wear just a bit thin

  8. We were never going to win away from home against a relegated Championship team with a player sent off after 30 minutes. Blame James if you have to but there is no winning for Moore from that position. Did well to manage to shut them out until 65th minute really.

  10. When asked about conceding more goals from crosses. This was Moore's response to being asked about the continued failure to solve this problem. It's hardly a surprise that we continue to see almost carbon copy goals if this is how he views it. Unforgivable really.

  11. The game management and strategy thereafter was poor. Moore's substitutes on Saturday definitely helped secure the win against Charlton, but they were baffling tonight. 1) we looked comfortable immediately after the Red card, until Byers went off 2) why not bring on Fizz and Dennis to get some legs into the midfield after the first goal? I like Moore, but strange strategy after the red card.

  12. Whether its conceding from set pieces or conceding from crosses into the box, the issue IS the same as last season. Our inability to defend balls into our box.

  14. Now that the dust has settled somewhat… - The lineup; I actually liked it, and was looking forward to seeing how they would get on for the hour or so you usually get before subs are made. Can understand Bannan and Windass being benched, given Windass’ fragility lately and Bannan’s somewhat slow start to the season. - Before the red card; I thought we did very well, limited Posh to mostly counters and long balls, dominated spells and should have had a goal at least. That James/ Johnson combo down the left looked to add balance, midfield looked solid and Paterson/ Gregory linked and looked a handful - The red card; wether it was or it wasn’t it was certainly the turning point. I thought yellow at best, ref disagreed. James gave him the option by going so high - That first sub; As soon as James was sent off my initial reaction to how the back 5 should look was: Paterson, Ihekwe, Heneghan, Palmer, Johnson. Make no changes, see it through till HT and re- group. Regardless, a change was made, but for me the wrong one. I’d have still taken Byers off and kept the height of Vaulks and Bakinson on, but I’d have brought Windass on. Put him in with Vaulks and Bakinson, keep the back 5 listed above and hoped for something on the break or a hit of magic from Windass. - Crosses from the right; Moving Ihekwe to LCB is a non- starter for me. Johnson is by far and away the easiest WB we have to play against if you want to get crosses into the box. If that happens, and often did last night, Ihekwe is out of the equation to head the ball away if the cross beats him. Last night that left Heneghan basically alone as Iorfa couldn’t head a ball if his life depended on it. Keep Ihekwe at RCB. Barely any crosses come down our RHS as both Hunt and Palmer defend the cross much better that Johnson. Moore really needs to suss this out and fast. - Overall; we were on a hiding to nothing as soon as the red card happened. Go down to 10 men, at home, against Burton, and you’ve a chance. Do it away v Peterborough and you’re in for a tough ride. I actually thought we started the 2nd half brightly and were unlucky not to go in front, bit it was always going to be an uphill battle. I’m not too upset about last night to be honest, as the red card kills it for us. But please DM accept that LHS is an issue and sort it, quickly. It’s the only way we’ve actually conceded a goal all season, it’s staring us in the face. Bit of a ramble there Be interesting to see the defensive lineup Saturday.

  15. Taking him off was stupid. His reaction was stupid. The little assistants actions were stupid. All in all, a complete sh*show which got picked up and was all over Twitter last night. Turns what was a bad night into a particularly bad one. Congrats to all involved.

  16. Exactly what I want to see. What I don’t want to see is our assistant challenging George’s frustration for all to see. That should have happened at half time. Poor and unprofessional from Smith IMO.

  17. Fùcking hell there is always one good samariton it's a forum if you look around on every fans forums you will see the same unless you're blind! But when you get managers making strange decisions and having played a few games thats been unconvincing then excuse me but expect a bit feelings being expressed amongst a large fan base, it actually amazes me how quickly ppl criticises the fans for having a moan...its totally justified after the performances even after the unconvincing victories. 7k away MK 4k away tonight Fans can say what they like if they feel short changed.

  18. Im not gonna dig out any players, as for me it was Moore who got this wrong. I know a red changes games but absolutely shocking nonsensicle tactics killed us tonight. As soon as James got sent off, we needed to tuck patterson into RWB and move Palmer to CB. Ride it out till half time and then take stock and make a change if needed. Instead, we took off the best CM we had on the pitch, went to a flat back 5 and left 2 isolated in midfield and played with 2 in attack. Who the fizz still plays 2 up front when your nil nil and have just gone down to 10 men? We should have stayed as we were and gone with just 1 up front. It wouldnt have been fun, but we wouldnt have just give up midfield and invited them on to us over and over again. Irrespective of how they played, both Bakinson and Vaulks got hung out to dry with Moores silly switch up.

  25. I watched the match, I've seen us concede this goal countless times so whilst Staton was annoying the sh!t out of me he was correct in that regard. Set pieces was only part of it. The comment above is from Dom's post match report. If he says it does need addressing that doesn't make me feel any better because we've heard that countless times also.

  27. I want to support Moore but whenever he does something to give me some faith in his ability as a manager he subsequently does several other things leaving me confused and frustrated. Honestly and with all due respect to Moore, I think the jobs above his level and unfortunately we will fall short while he's responsible for selection and tactics.

  28. Moore was pathetic tonight. Awful starting line up and not bringing on Bannan and Windass as soon as they got their first was ridiculous. He’s not good enough and when we don’t go up this season he’ll be gone!

  29. No chance we finish top 2 under him, he’s a nice guy and his vision is top quality, he sadly just doesn’t have enough to back it up. Way too cautious at times, tactically poor and still no real plan b.

  32. Just seen the goals.... forget what I said about giving him so many games. SACK HIM NOW UNBELIEVABLE TWO FREE HEADERS AGAIN Both had free headers from crosses and no marking. Not even close to them!!! Shocking how its possible to keep having this happen. Really weird, it's a basic thing to mark an attacker in the box and not to stand off them or let them walk away from you. Moore out Happy clappers... watch those goals and tell me how it's not f#@kin UNBELIEVABLE he hasn't sorted this after so very long
