  1. I couldnt comment on him spotting a player "when we were third" as he didn`t have the chance till January. As for motivation , do i really have to list the performances where we looked flat as a [email protected] ? And yes..... i was cautiously optimistic.........unfortunately up to now it would seem my optimism was ill founded.
  2. Awful attitude.................although , probably the type of player that Warnock would get a tune out of.
  3. Posted this when we were third , Awful performance...……..couldn't believe it when we were winning. Iorfa and BOTH fullbacks were shocking, Bannan , Harris, and Reach all well below par, I am still far from convinced with Luongo, and Nuhiu and Rhodes were putrid. We stank the place out and need to shake it off very quickly. This in November Still in a decent position in the table but we seem to be overly defensive at the moment , and I have to admit the alarm bells were ringing for me yesterday when he was gushing about Pelupessy,s performance last week. It may have been just his way of boosting his confidence but if he REALLY thinks JP played well against Leeds then that IS a worrying sign. And this ... This in a fu***in nutshell, all he spoke about all week was how tough it was going to be against a Tony Mowbray side. Don't get me wrong I am cautiously optimistic about Monk,s tenure but the approach Saturday and his continual picking of Reach and Palmer despite their abject form is a worry. And this... Mmmmmmm…..That is a particularly worrying comment.....why in hell are we not attacking a side desperately low in confidence from the word go...……….our porkular neighbours showed last year what can be achieved with an attacking mindset Not that i HAVE to prove anything to you , it just so happens we have a different opinion. I was quite ambivalent about Monks appointment , could have done better , could have done worse , and even allowing for what a $hitshow the club is at the moment, i haven`t been overly impressed with our style of play or his "tactics" and team selection at any stage.....even when we third. I am not "dragging him down" i am stating MY opinion and am happy to be proven wrong..........we shall see.
  4. I know a lad who played with him in the Nike academy , he said he was very talented but had an over inflated opinion of himself , which is kinda reflected in his career so far.
  5. The huge difference being , Wilder can spot a player and knows how to motivate them. Monk has had a year , have you seen any evidence of either of those two qualities so far?
  6. Similar situation in Sheffield.....my nieces lad has been approached by both Wednesday and utd , and despite the lad being Wednesday mad she said the difference in approach was huge and they would be daft not to pick the dark side.
  7. 1) What was the first Wednesday match you can remember ever going to? 1967 Wednesday 0 - 1 Liverpool 2) Who was your Wednesday hero growing up? Tommy Craig , Rodger Wylde 3) Who's the greatest ever Wednesday player? John Sheridan 4) What's the best match you've ever been to? League cup final win 5) What's the best away day you've ever had? Blackburn 1 - 2 Wednesday promotion season under Big Jack 6) What's the best football ground you've ever been to? To watch Wednesday , Wembley 7) What's the best goal you have ever seen at a Wednesday match? In terms of importance I`m with Vulva......Wilson against Chelsea , for the first time in my life i was gonna see my club in a major final at Wembley 8 ) What's the best ever Sheffield Wednesday atmosphere you've experienced? The Blackburn game , see above 9) Who's been the best ever Wednesday defender? Roland Nilsson And.... 10) Where's it all gone? When you experienced all of the above did you ever in your life expect to be now talking about FFP, P&S, VAR, Chairmen, Points Deductions, Hearings, Appeals, Transfer Embargoes, Court Cases, Lawyers, Barristers, QC's, Agents, Advisors and Loopholes? (not talking about just SWFC here - but football in general, as a whole.. as a sport) I would like nothing better than football to reboot and reset..............rapidly losing interest in all this corporate [email protected]
  8. I wanted Cook this time last year before he was "trendy" and i wanted him based on his OVERALL record in management....ie he has left every club he has managed in a better state than he found it , plays front foot football that is worth watching , has won promotions , and has an eye for a player..............in particular unearthing gems in the loan market and lower divisions. Now if only i could think of a team that is in dire need of qualities like that.
  9. Troy Parrott signs for Millwall. Wouldn’t have minded him here. On top of securing Ryan Woods for another season , good business by Rowett..........ah well.
  10. I want to be positive about Monk , for the simple reason he appears to be staying , but on the evidence of his first 12 months i aint in the slightest bit confident that he is the man for a re-build.
  11. I get that Davey..............as i said in another thread , the second next season kicks off we will all be behind THE TEAM. Can i ask what your opinion is on the way DC has managed this club ?
  12. I agree.....................my fear is with this type of player that if , say , a Middlesbro or Preston also bid for him then last nightsdnews will put us behind the 8 ball
  13. If we able to spend then this , and young loanees has to be the way forward. I just fear that even the likes of Clarke-Harris would be tempted elsewhere after last nights news. Our cloth will have to be re-cut............freebies like Kieron Freeman and Tyler Blackett who people would have previously turned their noses up at will now be the market we are dealing in.
  14. The second we kick off next season everyone on here will be willing us to win so all this "man up" and "grow a pair" nonsense is ludicrous because when push comes to shove we will all be behind them. Do i think Monk is the man to turn this around.....well no, I don`t but i think we are stuck with him so lets see. What i simply cant fathom about the posters labelling fans whingers and moaningfannies is the blind acceptance of the state that DC has got this club into , a very long list of failures and awful decisions through all aspects of the organisation is met with a shrug and anyone who dares to complain that this is all happening whilst we shell out top dollar (yes...for this $hitshow...... top dollar) is laughably told that they wouldnt be wanted in the "trenches". Just how far and HOW badly does this club have to be run to make them angry and demand change
  15. This.......................i said at the start of last season that if he didnt adopt a more aggressive side to his physical and mental approach then his career will end up being what might have been , and to be honest this has been his worst season of the lot so with just one year left on his contract , if anyone is prepared to offer money we should take it and stop making the same mistakes over and over.
  16. So... We no longer own Hillsborough We are sponsored by "fake" companies We have one of the worst "fees received" record in the division We have no CEO We have no director of football We have a manager who wont confirm if he has a say on incoming players We had empty corporate boxes even before covid We have a manager who led the squad to a finishing position of 17th We now belong to the shameful list of clubs to have points docked And for the pleasure of all this we pay the most expensive ticket prices in the division. Yet we still have fans who are seemingly unperturbed by any of it , and we just need to , you know , MAN UP.
  17. Wilder did an interview on talksport the other day saying that his recruitment last summer was based around building as strong a championship squad as he could just in case they were relegated straight back down.
  18. This is a REAL problem as you dont usually see as many freebies in the striking department during close season. Had a quick look the other day and there was maybe a handful out of contract that we may consider .... Gestede, Dicko, Gnanduillet etc. Other than that its loanees or , presuming we are not embargoed , relatively low cost gambles like Laballa and Clarke-Harris.
  19. At the risk of being accused of "noshing off " Brentford again , that is what PROPER recruitment can get ya.
  20. This is all getting very tiresome......"hero" "legend"....................."donkey" "carthorse" , its like the f***ing politics section where people`s opinions get more and more polarised and anyone who disagrees with a given viewpoint is a "weapon" or "mushy". I have stated my own opinion on Athde`s time with us before so wont rake over it again...............suffice to say in political terms i would be classed as a fence sitting centrist. There are FAR more things at the moment that we as a fanbase should be losing our $hit over than this.
  21. This is the TYPE of signing we have neglected for too long , but everyone saying its a GREAT signing should probably wait until we have seen him play.....................hopefully they are right.
  22. Seen him play have you ? it was only last week you were saying that the managers at Sheffield Wednesday don`t do the recruiting
  23. Home kit is fine , away kit is horrific.
  24. Been saying he would be my choice since Bruce left , but he would have to want the job......and more importantly he would have to DEMAND full control over all incoming and outgoing transfers.
