  1. The reason I put 'Greece' in brackets is because I can imagine the jokes from Owlstalk if I hadn't (I know this site too well). I'm in Rhodes (Greece!) on holiday and wondered if anyone knew of a sports bar that will be showing the game tomorrow? Also, if anyone else is also here, hit me up. the hotel lobby seemed a bit bemused about the idea and so I hope Owlstalk is of more value. That is all - thanks!
  2. Perspective

    Not sure where 'gosh' came from, I was just in a good flow and it felt right at the time! On a side note, I used to love Beano!
  3. Perspective

    Hello all. With the new season upon us, I wanted to jump in because I feel some of our fanbase are heading into the new season with a negative mindset at a time where everyone should be excited and ready for another go at promotion. I will keep the following points brief as many - myself included - will be fed up of hearing about some of these... In no particular order: The kit really doesn't matter. I mean yes, okay, it perhaps shows a disorganisation from a commercial perspective, and we will have lost some revenue, but it's hardly worth getting worked up about. It will be sorted soon and everyone will rave about how nice it looks and all will be forgotten. Move on. Team strengthening. Yes, we need a few CBs (it seems we are close to one, who imo would be a good signing). However, aside from this I don't see why people are fretting at the lack of signings this summer. Can you remember our run of form the second half of last year? It wasn't pretty to watch, but it landed us comfortably in the playoff spots and we were one of THE form teams. George Boyd is a great addition, and I really don't think we need many more. We have a very capable, experienced, and familiar team as it is. On a similar note, we seem to not be good at getting business done fast, but when you look at the calibre of player we are in for, it's not going to be easy. Let the guys in charge worry about it and trust they have the same ambitions that we as fans do - to have a positive season. Football is back! Aren't you sick of wondering what your existence is all for on a Saturday morning every week? Gosh, even when we were going into a season with Stevie May and Nuhiu upfront together, I was still excited for the Wednesday family to come together, to have a few drinks in the pub with the lads before the games, and see what the season brought. The flouncing after the Rangers game was pathetic. It's our only loss this pre-season, and while it was poor (from what I heard!), it came a week in time for a good kick up the arse. We now know we can't be complacent against Preston. In life, seek and you will find. I.e. if you focus on the negatives such as the lack of kit, the need for a CB or two etc you will feel negativity... Whereas if you think 'wow, we have Fessi, Rhodes, Fletcher, Tom Lees, Westwood, etc. We are considered one of the strongest teams in the league. We are not a selling club. We have a great fanbase. We have a great chariman. We have a good manager, then you will feel positive and take the season as it comes. There's no point stressing out about things we can't control. Just support the team and if things aren't going well, trust that Chansiri - who has a lot of money riding on this project - will make it right. Enjoy the new season fellow Wednesdayites - it will be another roller coaster ride, I'm sure!
  4. New Hooper Song!

    Yes, I was one of those who created a version of this when we signed him. it went: Super Trooper, We've got Gary Hooper, Always on the run, Scoring goals for fun, feeling like we're number one.
  5. Warnock tells Wagner to beat us

    Some proper flouncing on here. Dont mind Warnock personally, but that's irrelevant to the flouncing of others.
  6. Newcastle only given allocation of 2.350

    Safety first innit.
  7. testimonial for Semedo

    It's disappointing to see the amount of comments citing him earning a good wage as a reason why he shouldn't be entitled to a testimonial. I don't see how this is relevant at all? some of the comments seem bitter towards him as if it's his fault he's paid well to sit on the bench. I'm not saying he should have one, but money shouldn't come into it either way.
  8. I'm switching to the Blades...

    Massively appreciate that Lomas! Phenomenal gesture. There are a few spaces available still on the away team (I'm number 17 on away team - left mid): http://www.footballaid.com/en/events/view/51/game-1.html Cheers again - absolutely choked by the support already!
  9. I'm switching to the Blades...

    Thank you so much for the donation Spencerowl, and the continued messages on here. Alan - I will pass your message onto him! Cheers again guys.
  10. I'm switching to the Blades...

    Thanks guys, and special thanks to Dan (Fred) who has just donated. UTO
  11. No, not like that. My future Father in Law (a Blade) has just been diagnosed with prostate cancer. To raise money and awareness for prostate cancer (and for a bit of a laugh at my expense), I'm taking part in Football Aid on his behalf... For the Blades... For anyone who's not aware of Football Aid, what this basically means is that I have to wear full United kit and play at Bramall Lane with a bunch of other blades fans and two United legends (yet to be announced)...Yes, I did grit my teeth whilst writing that. In all seriousness, it's like they say, cancer has no colours, and the recent announcement of his illness has certainly put things in perspective for me. Three things to leave you with: If you'd like to donate, please visit https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/the-undercover-owl For the record, my Father in Law didn't have any symptoms of prostate cancer whatsoever, he just saw the adverts encouraging people to go and have a test and so did...So I'd encourage any males over 50 to have a checkup - just for your peace of mind! Apologies if this is the wrong section of the site to post this Thanks for reasing Owlstalkers!
  12. Vote Winnall

    Good luck to Stefan Payne for POTM.
  13. I don't disagree that it's been a poor performance, but why do people start these threads while the game is still on-going? The big picture is that we've acquired 4 points from two tough away games with a home game and the transfer window on the horizon. Happy New Year folks!
  14. massive game today

    After the great achievement against Newcastle, we can afford to draw this one. However, a win would obviously be superb (and prefered!).
