    And so, in terrible form, depleted and carrying the ills of January into the game, with the bookies offering 17/4 on a Wednesday win, we went and made it out of Mordor with a valuable point. One which we'd have more than taken before the game all things considered. The Blunts have tried to take the mick. Even their offical Twitter attempted banter. They'd be better looking in the mirror though and asking how their team managed to only get two shots on target against us. Despite playing half an hour with ten men. Rather than making excuses and trying to convince themselves that Wednesday paid Wednesday U18 nearly half a million pounds for Liam Palmer.....Pigonomics at their absolute best. They can spin it out how they want. It was a positive for us and a negative for them. Jos had come up with hardly any time to work with what was left of our squad. He matched United up in a 3-5-2 and it worked a wee treat. To such an extent the skipper decide to make sure he was first in the bath before all the grubby buggers got in. So to tonight. Wednesday - V - Carlisle Jos' home debut. I'm just about giving up the Ghost that we might take on board the classic titular theme from the seminal 80's football show written by Sid Waddel . But just in case anyone does fancy it. Here it is again . Sing along : - Here go Jossy's Giants, Footballs just a branch of science, Head the ball, now Jossy calls... Jossy's Giants!!?? Depend..able, Reliant Put your faith in Jossy's Giants Get stuck in, we're gonna win... Jossy's Giants!! No? Bloody hell. I like it . Oh well. Tonights replay begs many questions. Will we stick with the same system that got a point at the Stain? Will any of the lads be rested with a big came against Warnoinks Cardiff this weekend? Will the kids start? "Clare is Cup -tied, Snoots!", ( I know, I know!) but some of the others might get a sniff. Pretty sure most of the bench warmers from the derby will get a longer outing Will we see Butterfield in a more attacking role. The one most of us thought we'd signed him to play! Matias in from the cold? Abdi! Is he still even here?!!. Will he retain a front pairing? Rhodes, Joao , Nuhiu ? I think Rhodes will be hoping so as he looks a bit lost when he's on his own up there. This game might be just what he needs though. Chance to rattle a couple in. This is how it lined up at their place in the 0-0. . Suppose it could be the same again. The thing is though. No one has a bloody clue! And that in itself brings excitement. No, really it does. I'm not joking. Things had got to the stage where you knew who was playing, where they were playing and how many slow sideways passes they were going to make. Going into a game not even knowing who is going to start starts the debates that fuel footall. The South has been selling fast. The Cup may have lost some of it's gloss, but it seems that the Wednesday public are very keen to get along and give our Jos a rapturous home welcome. If he gets us through to the next round too then the atmosphere will really start to lifting again and that's just what we need ahead of the visit of King Pig next Saturday. One more time. "Here go Jossy Giants..." Ok , ok. Keep your hair on. Don't you bloody shout at me laddy. I'll get Geoffrey round to open a can of whoop-ass on you! *Note to self. Check yoot dictionary to check that means, what I think it means. Right. Well. Seeing as no one wants my song. it. I would at least expect someone to come up with a reworking of some Dexys Midnight Runners, seeing as manager used to be their lead singer. Who knows. Maybe the band can do the trumpet bit of Gino and some wordsmith can come up with a lyric? We've got to make him feel at home. Come on everybody! . Too ra loo ra too ra loo rye aye And you'll hum this tune forever Come on Wednesday Come on Wednesday

    Pipe down fathead, no one is interested. Anyway, back on subject. Re bother, not that interested as long as it doesn't involve me. I was walking just behind the first escort from the Harley, which was full of 100 youngish 'lads', the majority bladdered and/or coked up. Let's just say that this lot, without a police escort, would have got throughly demolished on Brammal Lane corner by the 500/600 that were waiting for the them. Can't speak for the older Wednesday lot that followed from the Harley and Cavendish who I presume by looking at them could more than hold their own in such esteemed company. The songs about Wilder and Coutts are very distasteful. No need. I get the 'banter' bit, but Sheffield Derbies in recent years have developed a sinister edge, and without getting too carried away it's a matter of time before someone gets seriously injured, and then the whole balooon will go up and the game will be a no-go zone. I was in the Harley beforehand, and the majority of the songs were about the aforementioned. Same in the ground. And do you know the worst bit? It shortens the gap between us and them. That's the kind of thing they do, not us. Leave such antics and behaviour to them. It's what they are really good at, and they have developed this type of behaviour over a number of years as a result of a very large does of little man syndrome, and playing 2nd fiddle in this City for the vast majority of their quite mundane existence. This is Sheffield Wednesday. Not Sheffield United. Let's not forget.

    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

    Morning Ladies /Gents / Geoffrey Thought I'd post this bit of memoribilia from 1973 . It's from Typhoo tea , collect 6 tokens from typhoo products and receive a club crest.. Made from real plastic!! about the size of a saucer and double sided tape for fixing. I recall having all first division clubs and founder members and one or two lower teams at that time .. Cannot remember if you requested or got them random .. I know mum n dad collected all work mates and neighbours /relations coupons for me to get them . The Blunts one as I remember was exactly the same as the Sheffield Buses crest (don't know where that ended up)... Still a nice piece though don't you think? Bet all the 50 years and above lads had one of these on your bedroom wall?

    Obviously no condoning this. In an ideal world football should be a safe environment for all to enjoy. However, any Wednesdayite that thought that a visit to Bramall Lane on a dark Friday night was a going to be a nice family outing wants their heads looking at. It's not how it should be, but it is. When SYP say they need 500 coppers, maybe you should consider whether it will be a nice place to be.

    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

    Funnily enough the star and local MPs didn't mention the shocking behaviour of a few hundred of their fans on Friday night, who then made a mini-documentary glorifying the attacks on owls' fans which is on social media. Instead it focused on a bit of owls baiting, on a crude (and wrong) 'song' at the game - a song! I not belittling this, but in context of fireworks and bottles being thrown at owls' fans walking to the away end might, in my view perhaps deserve equal coverage.

    Did you see the beer bottle thrown at Loovens from their main stand as he left the field? Epitomises the classless scrubbers! Great battling performance, proud of every player! If only Reach’s strike had gone in!! Great effort, great point considering and lovely to put a minor dent in their play off chances. UTO

    Good to see us bringing Sean Clare on at Bramall Lane Hopefully a sign of things to come and a huge sign of possibility to any youth team players we have at the club who previously had the door to progressing to the first team well and truly shut, locked and boarded up by Carlos

    So if Dejan Kelhar wasn't such a mystery ... I mean his injury was genuinely unlucky and offering him a deal was probably the decent thing to do ... Just kind of odd that we'd get him fit and then let him resume his career elsewhere, without ever ... Anyway, if that wasn't a mystery then this is ... JOSE SEMEDO What's going on here? We had the will he/won't he all summer long Apparently there was an contract extension on the table for him to sign, but he just wasn't returning Carlos's calls ... It might've been about money, it might've been about his need to play more regularly Either way, if he'd stayed I'm sure he'd have had more game time with us than he's getting with Vitoria Setubal And for those who think his best years are behind him, I'd guarantee Burton wouldn't have scored that first goal if Semi had been on the pitch They'd have taken that full back off in a bag! Anyroad, Setubal ... He seemed happy enough to move there, but he's made a total of 3 league appearances so far (2 starts) and the last of those being on 3rd December He can't be injured - I mean, the guy is indestructable And it's not as if he isn't good enough either - they're currently 2nd bottom for chrissakes Whatever's happening, this is one I'm gonna follow with interest Is it too late to get him back on loan?

    So please explain to me, you don't condone violence, even whilst it's in self defence, with bottles, bricks and fireworks coming at you, there's no excuse in your opinion to fight back (cus women & kids may be around). But you would be prepared to smack a fellow Owls fan ( therefore using the violence you some much deplore) for throwing a missile back at the neanderthals who are attacking them. Quite an astounding and contradictory statement there mate. Each to their own but I believe you are in a minority of one with that comment. BTW I wouldn't want women or kids to get hurt, but if I had have been there and faced with a barrage or bottles, bricks and people wanting to kick my head, I think I would be within my rights to defend myself. Especially if it looked like the police weren't doing much of a job at ensuring my safety.

    He never looked a dreadful signing, anyone with a brain cell could see there was a good footballer there, sadly our cavemen tried their best to ruin him. Well done Adam Reach, showed some strength of character through it and is always one of the first over to clap the fans, even when they were abusing him.

    After listening to Jos in the press conference talking about the long term injuries And in particular FF it seems even more aparant now that CC and HIS medical staff handled our injury situation really poorly. Add in to this CC’s comments about reserve players it’s clear now that his ethos was this.........I have my best 11 and they will play even if that means the particular individuals don’t have to Train because of their injuries!! The number of times CC referred to “managing little injury problems” in his conferences over the past 12 months does make me wonder if these players have been forced to play through the pain barriers with the help of quotezone injections until the broke, for want of a better word! Steven Fletcher and Keiran Lee’s names spring to mind immediately. CC really has left Jos picking up the pieces quite literally hasn’t he

    Now let us examine the curious case of ... DEJAN KELHAR On the face of it, a much-travelled Slovenian centre back who spent the early part of his career pinballing between clubs in his homeland (incl. a brief spell in Germany) before moving on to Belgium (Cercle Brugge) as a 25yr old He won his first full cap there and after a couple of seasons moved on again, spending time in Poland, Israel, Turkey, Azerbaijan (you don't think ...? nah) and finally Serbia Picking up the odd trophy as he went - it was at Red Star that he won his sixth and final full cap He then spent the following pre-season (2014) on trial at Wednesday Unfortunately, he picked up a serious injury during that trial (knee? can't remember tbh) but we offered him a 12 month deal anyway I do recall Stuart Gray saying nice things and commiserating with his situation but I don't know if it was just an act of charity on our part or what Either way, it seemed to set a precedent (signing crocks) that we've remained true to ever since Needless to say, he didn't make a 1st team appearance - although I'm sure he did make the bench once or twice The following summer he returned home to Slovenia and went on to make 50apps (4 goals) for Olimpija Ljubljana, plus another short loan spell in Turkey Now aged 33, he's back at Celje (for the 4th time in his career) on loan and to date has clocked up 7apps for them in the SNL1 In summary then, a respected career professional with around 300 senior appearances to his name - but none for us

    Personally, I'd look at Wildsmith in the first team, Palmer in the first team, Clare getting his debut in the Sheffield derby, Dawson on the bench last game, and one of our most promising youngsters in Penney signing a new deal, and take the Hirst situation in isolation and think maybe it's not all the club's doing...

    Can relate to this really well, I'm 61 now & followed Wednesday everywhere through the seventies & eighties, a time where I think everyone would agree that this football violence thing was at it's peak....I was at Oldham, Darlington & Villa which were among the most notorious of many like minded days out back then. I have never ever actually been too involved in fighting etc, although once copped a bit of a pasting at Mansfield when me & a mate turned down a dead end street by mistake followed by a small group of theirs, nothing too bad & no one got really hurt, in fact it was a bit of a buzz. This tribalism what some people are talking about is real, it exists & is in my opinion part of human nature, someone said it's in the DNA & I think they are right, like I said I've been at many away games where stuff has kicked off, I didn't really want to be involved, even though it was just yards sometimes feet away at times...no one made me get involved, no one attacked me, those that wanted it got it....that's how it seemed to me anyway....like someone has said, if two groups that want it are having a go then I'd want Wednesday to come out on top, like supporting your team, doesn't mean I condone violence, it means I'm realistic to know that if it's what like minded people want then I'm not going to call them knuckledraggers or scum. What I don't condone is mindless vandalism, why damage property?...why key expensive cars & put windows through, that's just nasty & cowardly, I've seen plenty of that following the Owls as well & to be fair made me a little ashamed of a small minority of our fan base........those that attack shirters = cowardly, those that blindside some random walking down the street alone = cowardly....those that spit on kids walking by(it's happened) = cowardly.......those that arrange meetings for a punch up I have no problem with. Back in the seventies....I knew some of Wednesday's hardest lad's cos I went to school with them....Colin & Vinnie Walters, Andy Smith...Vinnie lost his eye in a brawl somewhere, can't remember where at now but you know, he knew what he was getting involved in & I never heard him complain about it afterwards.....at times people do get hurt who don't want to be involved, like Sid at Hartlepool, you can't really blame football for this, people that commit this type of crime will do it regardless, whether it's football or anywhere else it appears to them it's a good idea, in a pub or if someone looks at them the wrong way, some people are just fkwits. There's a sub culture that exists where tribalism is alive & kicking, probably even more than we are aware...football is the perfect media for it to flourish, always will be as long as fans are allowed to travel away to games, to 'invade' another patch...even in a non confrontational manner it's kinda cool to be in another town/stadium chanting & singing songs, getting off the trains & coaches chanting 'Sheffield Wednesdays back in town again'...it's all to do with how we are made, DNA, has a lot to answer for.

    Carlos failed in 3 major games Hull, Huddersfield and Pigs at home. This is what he never understood. Jos concentrated on us and us alone. Carlos always attempted to play against the opposition by switching to try and counteract their game plans. What we saw Friday is what all Wednesdayites have been wanting to see. Play with heart, spirit and dight for everything. Keep that up and the fans will fully get back behind the team win or lose

    Complete stupidity for both fouls. Both were yellow cards, you just can’t go to ground these days unless you win the ball without touching the man. People have been saying that Loovens legs have gone (which they have) but it was his decision making the infuriated me on Friday. He didn’t need to slide in for either tackle, the United players were right by the touch line and a fair distance from goal. Should have moved him on and replaced him in the summer, it’s an absolute must that we do so this summer.

    Personally if your'e attacked you have to try and defend yourself. Going to the lane especially as an owl there is more than slim chance of being attacked or abused. Its not a place to take women folk or kids as theyr'e still set in the 70s/80s. There are other examples this season where so called blades have attacked innocent fans i.e Boro away, Norwich at home.

    I'll have a bash at that one. They're so lenient because so many had been clamouring after him for years on end. The threads about him every summer were almost hysterical. Many are lenient with him....because in doing so they are are being lenient on their own judgement. No one likes to admit they're wrong. Especially when it comes to football.
