  1. Obviously all that propaganda from the Star has had an effect on me!
  2. I think sections of the local media have had a rough ride from our fans at times - Paul Walker and Seth Bennett did a good job of being impartial on Radio Sheffield despite being self-confessed United fans. But something shifted a few years ago which is hard to ignore. I remember watching a stream of our match at Villa in November 2017. It was the match where Reach scored a screamer after 16 seconds and we went on to win 2-1, although it should have been more as we completely played Villa off the park that day. Immediately after the game, I listened to Radio Sheffield to get some reaction. The first caller was a United fan, bleating about how great Leon Clarke was (he'd just scored 4 against a poor Hull side). The second caller was another United fan. The third caller... another United fan. In fairness, this third caller was interrupted... so they could interview Chris Wilder. After putting up with the chavvy bus driver's weird multitude of accents for what seemed like a good 10 minutes, we finally got around to another caller. Yep, a United fan. I turned the radio off. In the space of about 25 minutes, the only acknowledgement that Wednesday even existed was to read out the score from Villa Park a couple of times. It was beyond ridiculous. I haven't listened to Radio Sheffield since. With regards to the Star, I really do feel for Dom and the other Wednesday reporters. Nothing comes out of our club, so to have to create relevant content every day of the week is nigh on impossible. But what really leads to the (justifiable) accusations of bias against the Star is, ironically, the impartiality and professionalism of the Wednesday reporters in comparison the the United reporters, Danny Hall and the odious James Shield. These two behave like total fanboys, with Shield in particular responsible for what can only be described as some outrageous pro-United propaganda. Remember when England were exceeding expectations at last year's World Cup, and we were treated to such delights as 'Southgate takes a leaf out of Chris Wilder's book' (or something along those lines). I appreciate there may not be a lot to write about in the off-season, but that was just one of a string of pathetic articles, designed only to pander to the red half of the city. The fact that the editor of the Star has allowed such different approaches into how it reports on the two clubs will inevitably lead to accusations of bias. I read on another thread that someone had broached the subject with the editor, who admitted he was a United fan. The Star has become a pig propaganda machine, and that's unlikely to change anytime soon.
  3. Cook would be my first choice. He’s been successful in his last 3 jobs, playing good football along the way. Most of the unemployed managers we are being linked with have failed in their most recent job, which is why they are currently out of work.

  5. It's a nothing article: "Giovanni van Bronckhorst had to cross Newcastle United as a new employer, but we may still see the former international coming season back in England. Fans of Sheffield Wednesday see the ideal man in the former Feyenoord trainer. On the English Wikipedia, "Gio" was even appointed as a new manager." http://www.soccernews.nl/news/599842/naam-van-bronckhorst-duikt-plots-op-bij-verrassende-club
  6. Are you sure it's Hunt that's come on? The Twitter feed is reporting it as Stobbs,
  7. I think I read that Bidwell had the highest cross completion rate of any fullback in the division last season.
  8. Just had to hide a load of posts. Can we tone it down please? Those who are doing most of the squabbling have actually posted some decent content in this thread - when they've stuck to talking about football. People want to discuss the topic without having to read pages of insults stemming from a personal spat. Please stick to the thread. We don't want to be handing out bans. Cheers.

  11. Börner's adventure: Three years England Arminia's captain of the past season goes to Sheffield Wednesday and explains why this is the perfect time for him and his family right now. Peter Burkamp 08.06.2019 | Updated 50 minutes ago Bielefeld. Julian Börner is curious. For him, a new chapter begins in brief: On July 1 DFB-Sheffield Wednesday. Arminia's captain of the past season has signed a three-year contract with the English second division club. Until the departure there are still some things to do. Next week the moving van comes. The Börners - Julian, his wife Kristina and daughter Emma - give up their luggage, but by no means everything else in the Bielefeld home. Your house will be sublet, a part they will continue to use when it comes to a short break home. The city on Teuto will later remain the center of life. That's how it's planned. "When the little one comes to elementary school, we want to be back," says Börner, who has not come to terms with a return to the DSC, even though coach Uwe Neuhaus and sports director Samir Arabi were very angry that the 28- Year old in spite of oral commitment umendschied. A childhood dream comes true "I definitely have not made it easy and can understand the trouble. But it has always been a childhood dream of mine to play in England. "Two years ago he had already received a concrete offer from England under the impressions of the birth of his daughter and the spectacular last year's relegation in Dresden He gave priority to Arminia. "Now suddenly this economically interesting offer came in. I flew over, talked to those responsible, completed the medical check-up and signed it," explains Börner. Also for his wife fit the arrangement. She will continue to do her part-time job remotely and work on her doctorate. "It's just the perfect time," Börner said, and he has received encouragement from the team and his friends, and even DSC officials have congratulated him on the opportunity. Börner becomes the first German in the history of Sheffield Wednesday (founded in 1867). The traditional club was already English champion. "I'm really up for it and I'm curious to see how I react to the new environment," he says.Another language, significantly more competitive games and new teammates await him. "I'll have to work my way up a new standing," Börner says about the challenge he likes to accept.
