  4. I’m not a big fan of DM but today’s result has certainly put paid to him getting the sack in January. 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

  10. Linked with Preston, Derby, Sunderland, Portsmouth. I reckon the unique opportunity to split his time between LWB and the bench could make the difference and entice him here.

  11. Okay, I'm gonna say it. Last season we went down without even a whimper. Blame Moore all you like but he was very ill for quite a bit of that time. The shiite had already been set in place by his two predecessors. When we did go down, it was said by many that we were in a right state and would probably only finish mid-table in league one. Some even thought we'd do a double drop. DC put his faith in Moore to help rebuild the club. Then we managed to hold on to our best players: Windass, Iorfa and Bannan all stayed. We signed loads of players and suddenly everyone thinks we're certainties to go up. But... we had a new squad and have been absolutely blighted with injuries, yet again. Moore hasn't been able to play his best 11 once this season. No, he's not perfect and I don't know if he is the man to take us up but we can't just keep changing managers every time we have bad runs. Yes, many think he should be doing better with the players we have but he is battling against this losing culture and weak mentality we have at this club and have had for some time. When does the blame rest with the players? I'll probably get pelters for saying he needs to be given time to rebuild properly but so far he's doing as well if not better than most of our fans thought we'd do at the end of last season. We have short memories. Anyway, great win and performance today. Let's hope it continues.

  12. 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.

  13. Meeting with buyers So DC how much do you want for the third division club currently ranked 9th in the league. £150m+ ............ After about 10 minutes of laughter - we were thinking about £10m or £25m if you include the ground. £150m - £210m if you want the ground too. meeting ends.

  16. Aye When football was real and affordable When the game had real characters and players that were rarely if ever injured. No embargo’s no prima donnas no scandalous wages paid to average players without doubt the 70’s and 80’s were my best years following Wednesday Yes the early 90’s were the best team but for all round enjoyment .. the trips…the connection… the laugh… for me nothing compares Oh and that team….. it maybe lacked a bit of quality at the time in some areas but it didn’t matter Why? Because they always gave their all and that matters

  18. I am absolutely sick to the back teeth of hearing and reading nonsense like this. Another one of the loser brigade in our fanbase. In the 2nd part of the video for the most recent promotion it forgets to mention Dave Jones, without whom we wouldn’t have gone up, but the worst part is the pathetic acceptance of mediocrity which sadly runs through our club and fanbase and has done for far too long. Why should we consolidate? Why wait? We are a club of losers, it is completely engrained into the club, we settle for absolute rubbish and this absolutely has to change. We need to demand more, to create a win at all costs and winning expectation, or we are doomed to being poo as a football club ad-infinitum. Big clubs that are relegated don’t act or think like this and we shouldn’t either. Newcastle when relegated from the Prem have gone straight up twice, their fans would accept nothing else, Man City did the same in League 1, my Scottish team Hearts have been relegated/demoted twice in my lifetime and they’ve won the Championship at a canter both times the season after because nothing else was acceptable. Promotion and winning is the absolute minimum standard to clubs that think like this. One of those occasions for Hearts was by over 20 points ahead of local rivals Hibs and a free spending Rangers. Nothing else mattered. The fans and club demanded it. Unachievable and unrealistic expectations to bounce back? Because it hasn’t been done before? Bullshit. FFS even Hull, Rotherham and Barnsley have bounced straight back to the Championship We’ve got the biggest wage budget in the division, some of the best fans, and the manager has been backed to get out of a poor league. I’d like to think that we still see ourselves as a big club for this division and in the English Football League, and especially in the THIRD ******** TIER OF ENGLISH FOOTBALL. Aiming for promotion being the goal and nothing else is acceptable. That is how it should be. I’ve been watching Wednesday since 85 and I want to see and hear that being said around the club, by the fans too, that nothing else is acceptable mantra. Quite why we accept losing to Shrewsbury, drawing with Gillingham at home, and building for next season as acceptable in the 3rd Division I do not know. That would never have crossed my mind when I started watching Wednesday. Why should it now?

  19. Rolls Royce of a footballer. Such a shame he picks up his injuries. If you can get 25-30 games out of him in a season I think he is always worth a new deal. No doubt in my mind he’s one of the best defensive players outside the Premier League when fully fit. Made it look so easy yesterday. Hopefully we can get as many games as possible out of him before the end of the season. Another one who could make all the difference.

  21. A friend of a friend, big pig fan (or at least he was) used to go and hang around the players entrance before and after games at the stain and talk to the players, especially the ones from Sheffield who he'd try to befriend. This was in their recent League One era. After Wilder came in and they started winning again, he had to compete with more fans doing the same thing so wasn't able to talk to as many. This annoyed him so much he decided he hated Wilder and various United players, and even stopped going to games. He refused to watch them during their 2 seasons in the Premier League, and even extended his hatred to the National side as some of the offending players were in the squad. During the Euros he kept posting photos on Facebook of an empty Meadowhall whilst England were playing. This man is in his 50s.

  23. On a professional level, it’s very embarrassing both for Moore and SWFC to have had a loanee taken off us after five months and rehomed with a rival side in the same division instead. Especially so given the relative sizes and supposed pedigrees of the two clubs involved. He’s deflecting here, trying to act like we never really had him so we haven’t really lost him. Darren, mate, it’s not the player we’ve lost that’s going to cause us the biggest issue here - it’s the significant amount of credibility in the loan market you’ve chucked away on our behalf.

  25. May as well close down the academy if he goes given our recent track record of losing players for peanuts. No point wasting time and money developing players for other teams.

  27. "Looking forward to it ,Sir?" "Looking forward to what?" "The game,Sir. Wednesdays first home fixtures in nearly 6 weeks" "6 weeks, is it really that long?" "It is, Sir." "Feels like 6 weeks since our last win." "No Sir. 5." "Well that's near enough! Woeful. Woeful I tell you!" "That 5 weeks does include a period of 19 days without a game though, Sir , due to the Covid-19 outbreak. May I suggest you're painting a gloomier picture than the reality. There have, after all only been 2 defeats in your last 14 games" "I suppose when you put it like that. I mean to say, get a result tomorrow and things look a bit rosier in the garden so to speak. It's only two defeats. During a Covid and injury crisis. Nothing to stop us getting back on the horse." "Indeed, Sir" "Who have we got?" "Plymouth Argyle, Sir" "FFS!. Forget about it Wake me again for Ipswich" WEDNESDAY V PLYMOUTH 3:00pm Kick off Hillsborough Stadium Sheffield ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- WEDNESDAY Under fire Wednesday boss Darren Moore has Auzzie Massimo Luongo back in contention to play after serving a 3 match suspension and may put the combatative midfielder straight back into midfield after two pointless games against Lee Johnsons Sunderland against a lowly but lively Shrewsbury Town. Striker Josh Windass has also been training after a niggle and could play alongside Lee Gregory. The Owls second top scorer Florian Kamberi may face a late fitness test. The will be without player of the month Chey Dunkley who is suffering from a hamstring injury. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- PLYMOUTH Steven Schumacher saw his side dig deep in their FA Cup tie versus Birmingham, scoring in extra time to advance to the fourth round of the tournament for a second successive campaign. Under their 37-year-old manager from Liverpool, this team have put together some excellent, free-flowing passing and have been on the right end of many results, losing only once in their last five matches played. They are currently positioned to earn the final qualification spot for the League One playoffs, a significant improvement from their previous campaign when they finished 18th. Even before Schumacher became the manager, this team showed that they are not intimidated when it comes to playing on the road, losing only three of their 12 games played in the league this season away from home. Plymouth substitute Ryan Law was the hero for his side over the weekend as Jordan Houghton set him up for the game-winning goal versus Championship side Birmingham. The last time Ryan Hardie found the back of the net was in their FA Cup victory over the Owls last November, but the Scottish international still leads them in goals this season with nine, tied for seventh in the league with Marcus Harness from Portsmouth. Michael Cooper has not conceded a goal since a 2-1 defeat to Sunderland on December 11 as their back five of Conor Grant, Macaulay Gillesphey, Dan Scarr, James Bolton and Joe Edwards did not allow a single shot on target in their weekend cup tie. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- FORM -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  28. If only it were true and we could look forward to a brighter day. In some ways I do worry that we are in such a terrible state that anyone stupid enough to buy us probably knows so little about football that they really shouldn’t be buying a club!

  29. It's an unpopular opinion, and I can absolutely understand why. But how many times do we chop and change manager? DM has done a lot right in terms of loaning players out, getting contracts sorted etc. But some of his tactical decisions have been difficult to understand, the recent Corbeanu fiasco is an ugly illustration of that. Dom Howson said something recently that struck a chord with me - he said that DM was "trying to change the culture" at SWFC. I think we can see from the past managerial appointments that whoever takes on this job has their work cut out for them. One thing I have taken from DMs appointment is that the players actually seem to like him, being the nice guy isn't always a great thing in footy, but as a manager it's got to be important. I'm still undecided on DM - I look at our league position, some of our performances this season, some of his decision making and I just can't get my head around it. On the other hand we are sat in a pretty favourable position for a team in a big transition period, and until recently were on a long run of unbeaten games. I dunno. It's all so sodding difficult. Would the replacement be any better? At this point, in our current position, I'm not convinced.

  37. Good to hear that we are still going for young talent and that the footballing world has more respect for Darren Moore than some of our Owlstalk posters. Hopefully they are right and Darren will be able to bring in the players that he wants and the team needs. Sooner, rather than later please!

  38. Do you have a promising young player? Are you considering sending them out on loan to develop into the first team player you need? Then why not send them to Sheffield Wednesday? Here they will discover that our bench is extremely comfortable for League one standards, we will even provide blankets for the winter months. A starting place will not be guaranteed, teaching your youngster that you need to earn your place, and being good enough doesn't guarantee a start. A starting place will be granted by meeting a specific set of criteria, which will be decided by our patented "starting line up tombola machine". The chosen players will then be entered into a raffle to see which position they will be playing. We find this keeps the players on their toes and aims to turn even the most direct attacker into a mediocre defender. Send your players here, where regression if the new progression.

  39. I went with a couple of Leeds-supporting mates to watch Leeds vs Wednesday in the home end at Elland Road. And when I say 'home end', I mean I was surrounded by blokes whose necks were thicker than my waist, most of whom had various Leeds tattoos on their arms, necks, and bare torsos. We lost 3-0 and I had to cheer them on for fear of getting my head kicked in. It got worse when we had to get on a train home full of p*ssed-up, grumpy Wednesday fans, though. Especially as my mates were doing a bad job of hiding their Leeds shirts under their jackets. Shortly after an empty whisky bottle smashed against the seat behind us and showered us in broken glass, things got bad enough for us to leg it off the train at a random station and wait for the next one. So all in all, my worst Wednesday game comprised: sitting among a bunch of pretty rough-looking Leeds fans whilst trying to blend in; cheering Leeds scoring against Wednesday three times; and nearly getting my head kicked in by a bunch of Wednesday fans. I've had better days.
