  1. He's alright after all Warnock is. Always secretly loved us, giving us Harris just confirms it. Cheers Neil, you daft 2wat
  2. Never wanted a player to succeed as much as Fox, the pelt he gets is shocking at times. He's not going to bomb past players and smash balls in like Andy Robertson, but he's competent, gives his all and recently he's started to look the part more and more. He'll have bad games and there'll be people lining up to criticize as always. But you have to give credit where it's due. Cracking block tonight to keep it at 1-0 too, vital.
  3. Agreed. A much more fancied side like Leeds, WBA or Fulham will drop points away at places like Millwall. This league is never as straightforward as it seems.
  4. Not hit any kind of stride yet. It's still August and we'll hopefully get better as the new lads continue to settle in. I doubt we'll stay at the top for too long, but give it time and see where we are and how we're playing in a few months. Far from the finished article but finding a way to win, that'll do for me.
  5. Looks like a proper no nonsense centre half. But shown he can play a bit too at times. Still early days, but could be a real find.
  6. Don't think anybody really thought he was doing a good job. Because he clearly wasn't. Think a lot just refused to believe that it was all down to him, or that anybody would actually be leaving out Westwood, Hutchinson etc in favour of young kids purely for footballing reasons and assumed there had to be more behind the scenes than we were being told. That may still be the case although it seems unlikely now. He was sh#t. But we move on.
  7. You can't get anything for £1 million in 2019 SWFC: "F#cking watch me"
  8. I like Bannan. But it was great to see us play today without him. Lee, Hutch, Luongo and Joey all offered something in that position and we played with a greater freedom, I often feel like we can't shoot at goal until Barry has touched the ball, we have to give it to Bannan. He shouldn't be a guaranteed starter, nobody should, but if we get to a point where he's warming the bench, this season is going to be really good.
  9. It's early days, but he looks the business. Doesn't panic, looks composed ( to an extent ) on the ball and his positioning is very good. The clearance off the line was just quality defending. Really hope we've finally unearthed a gem, because the early signs are very good. He was brilliant today.
  10. Best thing for me today. Last season it would have been Fletch chasing shadows on his own. In the first half today it was him, Lee, Reach and Harris hunting in packs and they got the ball back more than once, That extra energy in the squad is priceless. Keeps us on the front foot.
  11. I completely wrote him off and felt justified in doing so. He'd been out too long, he had to be finished. But even though he's still maybe half a yard short of his best, he's the best midfielder in this league, there's no debating that, he knows what he's going to do before he gets the ball, his first touch sticks every time, and he sees the pass that even very good players like Reach or Bannan probably don't. Different class. Sorry for writing you off Kieran. You're proper good at football.
  12. Love that nobody has any argument about the comments on the away end.
  13. Great window imo. Sold a player that hasn't really done enough in 4 years and got a decent fee. Signed a handful of players, all at a decent age with years ahead of them, some with real potential for resale value. The signings we've made were the sort of signings we should have made 2 or 3 years ago when we were blowing money up the wall. Really encouraging
  14. He's the sort of player we've been clearing out of the squad recently. Players do get injured of course, but our days of signing known crocks like Lazaar have to be over. Need to look elsewhere
  15. Played regularly for one year, then barely featured for the next 3 seasons because he wasn't good enough. Nice guy, but definitely a bit of an also ran.
  16. Correct, if ever there was a blueprint for how not to do things, it's Derby County. Unfortunately, theirs seems to be the blueprint we've been copying for the last few years.
  17. The amount of people who don't understand that somebody has to want to buy a player before you can sell him, is the mindboggling thing here.
  18. But we can't spend that sort of money. We should have been buying those sort of players 2 years ago but we're still paying for our mistakes. The embargo has been lifted but let's be honest we've escaped by the skin of our teeth, without the "sale" of the stadium we'd be in a lot of trouble. Can't just go spending millions again as we'll soon be back in the same sh#t we've just crawled out of. Frees and loans are the way this year.
  19. I liked the look of Fox and Harris in the Espanyol game. Although they weren't really tested defensively, they linked up well and Fox was always looking to overlap. Would go with those 2 down the left side tomorrow.
  20. I'd be more confident if they were all games we should lose. 9 or 10 points would be a nice start.
  21. Did a solid job whilst we were waiting for Bruce, the players know him and are clearly happy to play for him. Wouldn't want him to be appointed permanently, but have no concerns about him being in charge until we can get the right man in. Might be in danger of being too optimistic, but having him around gives us the option not to rush.
  22. Hopefully Rhodes with 20 odd. Realistically Iorfa with 6
  23. Forestieri contributed a total of 1 screamer against Norwich and sod all else last season, and this article claims we rely on him. Because it was partly true 3 years ago people who don't really follow Wednesday assume it still is. We still lack a contribution of goals and a bit of drive from central midfield imo, and we probably don't have a genuine 20 goal striker, but even with the utter mess of a pre season, if this squad finishes 22nd something has gone spectacularly wrong. Steady mid table side at least.
  24. Must have shown enough in training, Really hope he can stay fit. On a 1 year deal, he's low risk, potentially high reward.
  25. This is the biggest problem we have imo. The rest of the side, particularly central midfield has to contribute more goals and actually support the attacks. We often see a ball put into the box, drop around the 18 yard line and instead of somebody arriving to smash it in, Bannan and co are 30 yards behind the play. Too easy to deal with. Kieran Lee is the only player we've had in a long time who will arrive late in the box and contribute a decent number of goals from central midfield. Can't see it happening, but would make a huge difference of we could get him ( or anybody ) back doing that again.
