  1. First the Earth cooled. And then the dinosaurs came, but they got too big and fat, so they all died and they turned into oil.
  2. So, after we have won, we climb 3 places to 11th in the table.
  3. Didn't want to start a new thread with this question because then the question wouldn't be needed......... Why is there no matchday thread for the Donny Rovers game that kicks off in 3 hours? Are we all waiting for somebody else to do it?
  4. I'm quite big up front. Just saying!
  5. I'm no gambler, but surely 5/1 odds for Reading when only 4 teams are in the race has to be worth a bet.
  6. Who do we have on the bench to replace Lee if he breaks down. Plenty of attacking options but surprised not to see Jones in there.
  7. Can someone explain the "sports bra" that all the players seem to wear in training?
  8. How much money do we stand to make from this? Gate receipts etc. How much if we end up losing over the 2 legs? How much if we get to the final and lose? How much if we actually go up?
  9. By my reckoning, that means Cardiff have to win all three of their remaining games to overhaul us (taking goal difference into account)
  10. Did I just hear £3 million on Radio Sheffield? When was the last time we spent that much on a transfer fee?
  11. How long did it take Lee to make an impression at Hillsborough? Just saying like. May might come good yet. Season loan for me, but not back to Scotland. Would get better experience in L1.
  12. Today is definitely the day......... ........ that I know least about. I know some things about other days, but today I KFA.
  13. Surely if there was going to be a press conference they would have told the press, and the press would have announced "there is going to be a press conference". Or am I being too logical?
  14. With nothing really left to play for, should we be playing our own players ahead of the loan players. I'm thinking May instead of Keane.
  15. Sheffield Wednesday have signed European defender Claude Dielna on a free transfer, subject to international clearance. The versatile Frenchman has put pen to paper on a three-year contract at Hillsborough. Dielna is a powerful central defender who can also switch across to left back. The 26-year-old recently left Greek giants Olympiakos and the Owls have moved swiftly to snap up the stopper. Dielna has enjoyed successful spells with French clubs Lorient, Istres, Sedan and Ajaccio, lifting the French National title with Istres. He was linked with a host of English sides last season from the Premiership and Championship and joins Wednesday ahead of the trip to Bolton Wanderers in early September.
  16. Not heard anything mentioned about this for ages. Thought it was pretty much a certainty that we were having a director of football. This could potentially be the most important appointment we make this summer. If it was going to happen you would want somebody in by now to start working on the summer signings. Is this an example of us being slow off the mark again?
  17. I remember Mandaric saying something in the summer along the lines of "We will see where we are at Christmas and push on from there". At the time I thought he meant that if we were close to the play offs he might spend a bit more money. I now interpret it as "I'm not spending any money. I'm happy for us to be at the bottom of the table for half a season and then we'll bring in some loans to get us out of trouble" I think that is exactly what will happen this season.
  18. How exactly is this a positive thread. 3-0 win today. Start of a winning streak that sees us mid table by Christmas. Now that's positive.
  19. If Martinez plays and makes a mistake early on that costs a goal it will be interesting to see the crowd reaction. This lad deserves our backing and support. I just hope we're all big enough to realise this.
  20. Sorry, I don't get the logic. We have a player on form and you think we shouldn't play him for fear of him getting injured and us not being able to play him!!! JJ has to play a part tonight.
