  1. Whatever happens tonight, enjoy the build up. Enjoy the nerves and the worry. Embrace them. You wouldn't be feeling em if we'd finished 7th. We are where we want to be aren't we? Competing at the right end 9f the table, OK, automatic would have been preferable but I'll take this. It's why we do it week in week out. It's why we buy our season tickets or our pay on the day tickets or our Ifollow passes. It's why we get up at stupid o'clock cos we live in far flung countries. It's why we bring our kids up to support Wednesday, even though we know deep down we're signing em up to a life of stress and worry. It's for nights like tonight. One shot. One aim. One Wednesday. The players have put in one hell of a shift in the 2nd half of the season and with a bit of luck and skill the season isn't over yet. 90 minutes of noise from us could push them on to greater heights. Cheer every pass, forgive every mistake and lift em back up. They are human and will make mistakes, show em that we don't care as long as they try and rectify it. Give them the confidence to achieve. Tonight, just before kick off, take a look around. A full Hillsborough is a thing of beauty, drink it in and use it as fuel to get you through. Be part of the team for those of us who are no longer with us. We are Wednesday through and through, let's show em tonight what this means.

  2. Just like to say I’ve been following this site for a long time but never had the courage to sign up as I suffer from mental health (depression) and never felt comfortable to comment but after seeking help and talking to different people I know feel comfortable enough to join the group and join in with the banter …. stay safe and WAWAW …

  3. Last ever game for Wednesday goes off with concussion trying to grab us a goal. Quite fitting eh? Forget that mistake in the first leg, that’s not the reason we didn’t get promoted. Warrior for us for years. Thanks for your service Sam, will always be welcomed back. Oh Sammy Sammy

  4. I’m sick of this, last minute capitulations, bizarre team selections, clueless tactics, woeful set-pieces at either end. He’s just got to go now while we’ve still got a chance. We should get Roy Keane in and offer him a massive bonus to get us over the line. We need someone who can pick football teams that actually win games and see them out when we’re in front. We also need someone to motivate these players because I’ve no doubt they’ve got the ability. Moore’s post match interview said it all. Went on about how we’d left our shooting boots in Sheffield. No, you left them on the bench (Berahino) you stupid tŵat. Why oh why has he not consistently played Berahino with Gregory. He scores a hat trick then doesn’t get a look in. Football is all about partnerships and he hasn’t given our best front two a chance, why? Chopping and changing sides, bizarre substitutions, refusing to change the way we play during games even when it’s clearly not working, ie when we come up against the so-called “low block”. Lump it föòkin long Darren and get some big lads in box to cause mayhem. Why do we never leave anyone on the half way line when the opposition have a corner? We let them pack our area because we give them nothing else to worry about we should be leaving Bannan, Berahino up so it at least means they have to keep two or three back, but we don’t! Why not? Our defending from set pieces is woeful so why not try something else. He’s supposed to be a defender yet here we are conceding the same soft goals that we did at the start of the season with 5 games left to play. It’s inexcusable. And the least said about our corners and free kicks, the better. Moore will not get us out of this division. He’s assembled a superb squad for nothing and he should be commended for that. It’s a fantastic achievement. But he hasn’t got a clue how to use them. Time to go and get someone in who can before it’s too late. Either way, whichever division we’re in next season, I don’t want him here as manager.

  5. "Need to win this one ,Stubbs" "Indeed, Sir. If other results go the right way it would put Wednesday in the play-off places and be a real morale boost to the squad." "Eh? No. I'm not on about that. I'm on about Fatty Evans! We have to win because it's him visiting. By God, I can't stand the man. The thought of him booming down the touchline gloating, it doesn't bear worth thinking about" "Yes, but you're playing the Club, Gillingham, not the man" "No. We're playing the man, Stubbs. Playing the man. That's the thing with you none football folk, Stubbs, you think it's just club versus club. But it isn't. No. It's the little stories that make the game and this odious toad is one of the games villains. Literally a villain too he couldn't lie in bed straight him...more bent than a nine-bob note..." "Hello?....oh good evening Mr Harg.....yes, yes of course. Of course....goodnight ,Sir" "Who was that?" "That was Mr Hargreaves, Sir. He says careful with the accusations, he can't afford the lawyers at the moment as he's bought a new HDR Camera for filming the beautiful historic towns of England." "Oh. Where's he been?" "Dewsbury" *Shudder* "Oh right. Well, he needn't worry on that score because it's nothing we can get in bother for. It's a fact. Evans was a proven to be a crook.." *TEN MINUTES LATER* "Now come on Sir , don't sulk. Mr Hargreaves was only thinking of the site" "But Evans is a bloody croo-" "Sir!" "Fine. Fine." "Besides ,Sir. As you said before. IT's the side show isn't it. The little side stories. Isn't Evans just playing a character? Like Wenger was as the Professor who never saw anything? Or Fergie the gum chewing Glaswegian. Warnock the 'Wednesday hater. For all we know, behind the facade there might lie a very different character. In fact, in reality I've heard Evans is a little shy" "What of, a metric tonne?" "Sir. Really. We're not just going to engage in infantile remarks about his weight now are we? Now lets get down to football." "Ok" "I do recall Evans at Leeds ,Sir but he fell off my Radar a bit after that where did he go?" "Mansfield, Stubbs" "Oh, made the move to Nottinghamshire did he?" "Didn't really move Stubbs, as much as expanded over two borders" "Sir!" "Sorry" "Anyway Sir, he can't be that bad a chap. His assistant manager Paul Raynor has worked with him at his last 5 clubs. You wouldn't keep doing that if someone was horrible" "Raynor doesn't like him Stubbs. He's just stuck in his orbit" "Sir. Really. This is a bit much." "You're right Stubbs. I'm sorry" "I mean, you're talking about another human being here. A football manager to boot. They work under extreme pressure, and it must have a negative effect on their health. Its an all consuming job-" "He's all consuming all right" "Sir, really. I can't continue if you're going to carry on like this." "I'm sorry. Go ahead." "Right, thank you, Sir. Now a recent report about the health of football mangers suggested that they all need to find relaxing pastimes outside of the game to help them unwind." "Quite right, Stubbs. Common sense." "Steve Evans has apparently bought a race horse" "To stick between two slices of bread?" "I'm done" "Come back Stubbs! I can't do the OMDT without you!" "Ok. But this is your last chance. I mean, it really is puerile. And besides which, it's not very brave you know, is it Sir. Saying all these things behind the mans back" "I'd say them to his face!" "Really?" "Yes. I would. But there's not enough petrol in the car to get around to the front of him" ----------------------------------------------------------- WEDNESDAY -V- GILLINGHAM Sky Bet League One Saturday 13th November 2021 Kick off 3:00pm Hillsborough. Wednesday have only lost one of their seven league matches at Hillsborough this season and have conceded the fewest home goals in League One this season (four) Gillingham will be trying to make it four league matches unbeaten for the first time this season, after winning one and drawing two of their last three in the third tier. Steve Evans's side have only won three of 16 league games in 2021-22, with just one of those coming away from home. Meanwhile, only Crewe Alexandra and Doncaster Rovers have scored fewer goals in League One than the Gills this season (15). ----------------------------------------------------------- -------- WEDNESDAY ------ Sheffield Wednesday will be without Bailey Peacock-Farrell who is on international duty with Northern Ireland, meaning Joe Wildsmith should start in goal. Though he probably should be anyway in my book. George Byers and Massimo Luongo played 72 minutes in the EFL Trophy in midweek as they returned from injury and should be involved in the matchday squad. Sam Hutchinson, Dominic Iorfa - well, that's just the Wednesday way isnt it. Josh Windass is back but needs some "volume" ----------------------------------------------------------- -------- GILLINGHAM ------ Gillingham's already extensive injury list was made worse last weekend as Robbie McKenzie, Rhys Bennett and Ryan Jackson all hobbled off in the FA Cup and will face late fitness tests. Max Ehmer also suffered a knock in that game but was fine to continue and should be able to feature at Hillsborough. Stuart O'Keefe is also in contention to return, having been forced off with a hamstring strain against Accrington Stanley a fortnight ago. ----------------------------------------------------------- UTO

  6. Can I just say what a class club and set of fans yous have . Travesty that yous are down here with sunderland . Been to Hillsborough twice this season and yous are always a credit to your club magnanimous in defeat . Nothing too separate the two teams in the semifinals it could of went either way thoroughly enjoyed both matches . It would of made the perfect final us against yous lot but I seriously hope yous romp the league next year (providing we go up of course ). Our own forums are full of praise for your fans and a club as a whole so best of luck to for next season hope yous smash it . The Wycombe chairman has just done our team talk for us in his statement about us lot so I hope Alex Neill pins it up the dressing room pre game next Saturday. Hopefully 7th time lucky for me at Wembley. Yous will always be made to feel welcome whenever our paths cross again hopefully in the championship in the very near future . Best of luck in the future owls

  7. And save our season. This squad is going to be our best opportunity to get out of this league but it needs the right manager. Moore is truly awful and has lost the fans many games ago.

  12. Regardless of the quality on show, the opposition we face, or even the final result we achieve, the effort levels tonight are surely what all fans want to see in each and every game. I'm not sure why, and I'm not sure how, but we suddenly looked like a team this evening: the closing down from the front was exemplary; we hunted the ball in packs all game; and we didn't give Sunderland a moment to settle into their stride. No team will win every game, nor will they play attractive football each week. But if we see that work rate replicated in every game, then I for one will get behind it, and I reckon the vast majority will too.

  13. He does a good job which helps the team. The few seconds he saved by making their keeper hurry up could be the few seconds extra in which we scored. As for celebrating with the team. Good look to him, wish I was in his position at 44 never mind as a young kid. Why can’t we just be happy for a fellow young owl who obviously cares about the club

  15. "I'll tell you what Stubbs, I don't much fancy this one much, I mean to say it's...wait a minute. Who the hell are you!? And where's Stubbs?" "Oh yeah. I'm the new apprentice chef innit" "What?" "Chef, you know. Do the cooking and that" "Where is Stubbs?" "At this actual minute , like?" "Yes, of course at this actual minute. When else would I mean when I say "Where's Stubbs?" "Ye ye ye, I getchoo. He's actually at this minute, like, cleaning the stables." "Cleaning the stables? Cleaning the sodding stables. We have a girl who clears the stables. Wonderful job of it she does too." "Yeah. But she's been dropped innit. And Stubbsy boy doing it now" "By order of who!" "The new Estate manager ,n'that. He says he knows best what we is all good at" "Right. I'm not having this. I'm off to see this oaf. Press me a pair of trousers and get my cuff links and..." "I dunno how to press trousers. I mean, I'll have a go and that. But..nah man. I aint done no trouser pressin before." "Well what are you good at?" "I'm pretty good at club sandwiches and my pastry is getting a lot better, you get me?" "Right, well, go and make me a sandwich then" "Nah, you aint listening. I dont go in the kitchen no more. The gardener is in there now" "The gardener, Mr Wilkins? He doesn't know the first thing about cooking!" "Yeah, he said that to the gaffer too. Said he'd be better in the garden and leaving Cook in the kitchen showing me the ropes" "Too right. And what did the manager say?" "He said he'd soon get the hang of it. He just needed to spend some time in the larder. IT would help him get his volume in" "Get his volume in? What the bloody hell does that mean?" "To be honest bruv, no one knows" "Well, it certainly explains why last nights plum duff looked, tasted and had the density of a piece of coal." "Yeah. Mr Wilkins didn't want to serve it to be fair to him. He left it in the oven two hours too long. He was saying it was the most horriblist thing what he'd ever seen on a plate" "He was right!" "But the gaffer just said it was ok. It was burnt n'that. But for the first 15 minutes or so, it looked all right" "Really..." "Ye ye ye, thats what he said. Then Mr Wilkins said he dint want to do no more cooking" "Good." "But the manager , he just looked at him, y'know with this really, like, focussed look in his eyes, and said "We go again" "Right. That's it. I'm sacking the sod. I'm not having this. You go and fetch cook and you two get back in the kitchen. Send Mr Wilkins out to the garden hut and get Stubbs in from the sodding stables. This house might be a decrepit ruin but we can at least having people doing the jobs they were trained to do. FFS" ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Wednesday -V- Sunderland EFL League One Kick Off 7.45pm Hillsborough Two of League One's giant clubs clubs with big stadiums for the third division go head to head on Tuesday evening in search of three points, Wednesday hosting Sunderland at Hillsborough . The Owls are looking for the winning formula to turn draws into wins after recording four in a row against the footballing powerhouses of Cheltenham, Lincoln City , Cambridge and AFC Wimbledon. The visitors are looking for a response after their 5-1 hammering by Rotherham United on Saturday. It's almost as if having a lot of fans doesn't count for anything on the pitch isn't it? ------------------- WEDNESDAY -------------------- Massimo Luongo and George Byers will remain unavailable after a couple of months out, but the duo did make it through a "volume building" run out during the U23's drubbing by Sheffield United. them down the road. Sam Hutchinson has suffered a setback during his recovery from injury . As for those that are fit; well your guess is as good as mine. --------------- SUNDERLAND -------------- Denver Hume may remain unavailable depending on the results of his scan after he was forced off against Queens Park Rangers in the cup last week. He was forced to sit out the defeat at Rotherham, as did Nathan Broadhead, who suffered a setback in his recovery and is expected to return against Mansfield Town at the weekend. McGeady will serve his one-match suspension after his red card on Saturday, with Lynden Gooch possibly deputising in his place. ---------------------- FORM GUIDE -------------------------------------------

  16. Took up the offer that Ayr offered us when Bully was appointed at Ayr on Saturday last and had a brilliant day at Ayr v Iverness CT Ayr could not have been friendlier towards myself, my nephew and my sister ( his mum ) really excellent people in the shop where we collected our match tickets stewards that treated us like normal people not animals and fans that were so welcoming it was untrue Managed to get a chat with LB after the game too, Jaden took a flag which Bully noticed and he came over to chat after he had done his media and seemed very grateful for the Wednesdayites would made the trip ( over 20 on Saturday ) he was gutted about the Bolton equaliser too . Somerset Park reminded me a little of Saltergate not the most salubrious and only just over 1700 in but after an awful 1st half, down 2 nil after about 20 mins Bully made 2 half time subs and they changed the game gaining a 2-2 draw with a 17 yr old local lad Fraser Bryden scoring a very good goal which pleased Bully no end . All in all it was a great trip

  17. "Evening Stubbs" "Good evening, Sir. Let me get your case. Did you enjoy your holidays?" "I'll say. There's nothing like a brief trip to the 1920's Riviera to put a bounce back in the step. Ahh, great days, Stubbs, great days" "Unless you were poor" "Did you say something?" "Nothing Sir." "Excellent. Yes, well, I'm back and full of beans. What news?" "Plenty of news, Sir" "Just the abridged version then" "Right. (draws deep breath) Hutchinson has gone to Reading" "No!" "Yes. Vaulks has come in from Cardiff" "NO!" "Yes. Luongo has gone. But nowhere in particular. Wildsmith and Mendez-Laing have gone to Derby. Rooney has gone to the MLS. We've robbed Rotherham two best players, the centre half and the twenty goal centre forward." "No" "Yes. We've got the boy James in on loan from Blackpool, also Wimbledon's best player." "No." "Yes." "I don't believe it. It's all such good news. What about the kit? Have we got the new kit? Oh God. What have they done with the kit.." "Here, Sir.." "My God, I've never seen a thing of such beauty." "And the away kit, Sir." "Good grief. Pass me a tissue, Stubbs. I've gone moist" "Don't cry ,Sir" "I'm not crying. It's a good job you're here Stubbs, for I half feel like taking myself in hand and dragging myself around the room while chanting "Yellows, Yellows!"." "Indeed, Sir" "Well, this is it then. Put the Champagne on Ice, man. Put it on Ice, we'll pop down to the boating shed and pop a bit of caulk on HMS P*ss the League, eh what!" "Very good, Sir" "Come, tell me more as we walk. What other joyous news have I missed in the glowing Utopia that this place has become in my absence" "We've signed Stockdale from Wycombe" "Stockdale? The Stockdale?" "Yes, Sir" "Great shades of Elvis, this is it! The kit, the 20 goal striker, the busy midfield general and the slipperiest keeper in the business. Man alive, they may aswell give us the trophy now. Stunning football at home, and time wasting teams to death away to steal the wins. What a time to be alive! Anymore news?" "The England ladies team are in the Euro finals on Sunday." "No! Why that's superb" "Oh, and the EFL have announced a clamp down on time wasting." "Wait , what!?" "Yes Sir, after record the least playing time in history, that is to say the ball being 'in-play' than ever before last season, referees have been instructed to be more proactive in curbing time-wasting and will be sanctioning players early on in the game with cards. Sir, are you ok?" "Huh. Huhuhuh. hehe. My God, these people really will stop at nothing will they" "What people, Sir?" "The EFL, Stubbs. The EFL. There's no level to which they won't stoop in their quest." "Oh no..." "They wait until we sign Stockdale, the slipperiest of time eaters, until they bring in this time wasting thingy. Doesn't that strike you as odd eh?" " I'd have thought we might have got to Christmas before the first anti-Wednesday conspiracy" "They've got it in for us Stubbs!" "Oh, here we go. Righto, don't worry ,Sir. I know the drill. This is where I push the boat back in the shed, and you head back to the house, get drunk and mumble about secret cabals all night and..." "Not a bit of it, Stubbs. Not a bit of it. We're getting the boat out and I'll tell you why. Because even with their Wednesday hating rules-" "*Sigh" "-even with them, we're still going to rip the league apart! Oh yes. With these players and these wonderful new kits. Come on. Get your life jacket on Stubbs! YELLOWS, YELLOWS, YELLOWS!" +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ WEDNESDAY V PORTSMOUTH Darren Moore only has concerns over Callum Paterson who has a slight strain. The Scottish forward is the only player doubtful for the Owls opening day clash. New striker Michael Smith is available for selection and Darren Moore must decide whether to start his new striker or stick with the Windass/Gregory partnership that has played most of pre season. Will Vaulks is over a knock which kept him out of the Wigan friendly. PORTSMOUTH have nine new signings hoping to make their competitive Pompey debuts – although Marlon Pack did play a couple of games during his first spell at the club. Colby Bishop, Josh Griffiths, Michael Morrison, Josh Oluwayemi, Joe Pigott, Joe Rafferty, Dane Scarlett and Zak Swanson will all be hoping to feature. . ================================================ HEAD TO HEAD Overall Pompey: 27 wins Wednesday: 27 wins 15 draws At Hillsborough Pompey: 9 wins Wednesday: 18 wins 8 draws ================================================

  27. i am absolutely sick and tired of the supposedly owls fans on here, we were relegated with a squad that needed freebies and loanees to get through a season after financial irregularities, we finished 4th with one of the best home records. we fell short, yes, but sh!t happens. if we only supported clubs who were successful then it would be a very narrow choice. how about all you whinging fookers who want the manager out stop whining and realize we have had a team who gave us hope until the the 90+3 minute in the second leg of a playoff after a difficult period in our history. supporting a club is not about the success or the amount of matches you win, it's about the club you love, whatever... if you want to support a club that wins, fizz off and support liverpool/man c/ b munich etc, if not, grow up and be realistic and just support a club you love.

  31. Tactically outclassed over the two legs. Correct. But 85 points this season. Inherited an absolute shambles of a squad and club and has created a way of playing and made us competitive again, after a few years of pure dross in the Championship. I hope we have some money to spend so we can back him in the summer. I think he’s the man for the job. Tonight hurts, but Sunderland were the better side. It’s as simple as that.

  33. Excellent. Despite many mistakes, the last few months have been a huge upturn in his running of the club. I am also thankful for the funds he continues to put in. I hope he and Att have a great day and a result to remember! UTO.

  36. Where is the basis for this accusation of penny pinching? Seems to be a recurring theme Andy, previously you made a thread accusing the club of not paying wages again based on nothing? Then there was another similarly themed thread to have a go at Chansiri with no foundation? Don't get it. Yeah we all know he's fukkcked up loads of stuff, but stirring up crap with little to no foundation, what's the point?

  37. Imagine the wildest goalscoring celebration of your entire career being against a second string Sheffield Wednesday team, for Mansfield Town, in the Papa John's Trophy. And still losing the game.

  38. First there was the absolute 5-0 humiliation at Sunderland where the Wednesday players literally gave up. Second there was a 1-0 defeat at impoverished Shrewsbury Town which should have been 3-0 but Bowman missed two absolute sitters. Third there is now Wolves saying that they do not trust one of their decent young players to be placed under the "management" of Moore. Many of us remember going to the likes of Tottenham, West Ham and Chelsea in the days when we had a football team. Everyone who went there will know that there would be riots in the stands if they had to endure what we are having to endure under Moore. WBA sussed Moore out pretty sharpish. As a fan base Wednesday fans need top stop being so passive and give Moore sheer hell if there is not a resounding win against Plymough in a week's time. Enough is enough!
