  1. Sedgewick was a steady signing (not quite the "brilliant" signing a lot on here were claiming , dont you just love close season optimism ).............................................but im not so sure about this one , hes certainly quick but whenever ive seen him his distribution has been poor and his defending has had a touch of the headless chicken about it. I hope to god they both produce the goods for us , but im finding it hard to get enthused....................................my anger / disappointment over last season seems to be taking a lot of shaking off!
  2. Steady signing , offers more graft than craft (as will most of Irvines signings). I think he,ll play in his favoured right wing position as i,m covinced that Irvine has earmarked Johnson for a strikers role next season playing off a big man...............................and rightly so as this is his best position IMO.
  3. Wouldnt be too disappointed with this to be honest...............................hes no worldbeater but unfortunately we aint going to attract much better in this division. Very similar to Deon Burton in style , ie doesnt score many but has a very good touch and links up play really well.
  4. Been working away a lot lately and havent had time to scan the boards.............................................my mate tells me that Wednesdayite went into a meeting demanding answers to some tough questions about relegation/LS resignation.....................and that the board spun out all the old BS platitudes and the general feeling was " give the lads a chance".......................please tell me this isnt so!!!!!
  5. Andy Robinson is also a decent shout............................played really well for Martinez at Swansea , and Leeds fans were full of praise for him.................but apparently had a fall out with Grayson.
  6. Plenty id like to see us sign............................but out of the ones that we could REALISTICLY expect to sign , id go for Will Hoskins Jon Harley Gavin Mahon John Oster Gary Teale And...................Clint Hill would have been ideal........................not sure thats viable though!
  7. If the silence and ineptitude of breathtaking proportions continues and we REALLY want to rid this club of our cancerous board there is REALLY only one way we can do it.............................................and as unpalatable as it may sound to a lot of Wednesdayites (myself included) , it is to vote with our feet. As much as it goes against everything we believe in , if the first home game next season kicked off in front of 500 away fans and no-one else the media shitstorm and financial implications this would create would make the boards position untenable. I REALLY cant believe im suggesting this but a boycott is probably the only way..............................................DAMN YOU SWFC board for making me think this way
  8. With regards to money/wages spent , i think a large portion was raked back from the sale of the centre back Barker to Derby.....................................................either way its splitting hairs........................do you HONESTLY believe they spent more on wages than we did this season????
  9. Blackpool - 2nd lowest wage bill and 2nd lowest average home attendance in champs.........................................makes interesting reading for our board and all their apologists on here that cite a lack of finance/fans as the reason for our relegation.
  10. Did well for us overall............................still say he was criminally underused by Irvine in the last couple of months. True he was struggling to last 90 mins but he would have been ideal for the last 30 mins of games , where his composure and quality on the ball would have served the team far better than the invisible man Potter. Remember the free kick we got against Palace in the last few minutes??????
  11. "Its a town full of losers and we,re pulling out of here to win"
  12. Pretty ordinary player in my book ( that said he should have had more chances than he had last season ) , and wildly overrated by a lot on here.
  13. Frank Simek - USA Sean McAllister - League 2 / Conference Michael Gray - League 1 / Retire Etienne Esajes - Championship ( sneaky feeling that the blunts might be in for him ) Leon Clarke - Champs / League 1 Francis Jeffers - Australia / USA
  14. You,re right Lee , our player recruitment has been a joke for a long , long time now............................................however , have you dared to look at Irvines recruitment record at Preston.......................500K for Collins , 500K for Shiwulokomski , 500K for Trottman , 800K for Brown , 400K for Parkin , 1.2M for Chaplow.................................for a club Prestons size thats an awful lot of money on an awful lot of VERY average players , most of whom have been so poor that they barely featured last season and were farmed out on loan to the likes of Carlisle. Its because of our recruitment record that we needed a manger with a good track record in the market ( Warnock , O,Driscoll , Holloway etc) and looking at the evidence AI aint the man..........................just hope to god he proves me wrong.
  15. Lee Straffords blind faith in Howard Wilkinson , a man who,s time and methods (take note Mr Irvine) ended 20 odd years ago..................................what he did for us in the eighties was brilliant but that particular blueprint seems SO outdated and I wasnt in the least bit surprised that he picked a man who,s manner and outlook on the game are almost a mirror image of his own. As for the origanal post,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,I completely agree , we,ve just had an absolutely horrendous season from top to bottom and we barely raised a whimper................................................................................loyalty is a wonderful thing..........................unquestioning loyalty can be just as damaging as no loyalty at all.
  16. £500K for Trottman , £500K for Showulikomski , £500K for Collins , £500K for Parkin , £800K for Brown....................................christ thats [email protected] scary , and exactly the reason i was against his appointment. Given our financial predicament a manager with a good record in the transfer market was an ABSOLUTE MUST (Warnock and O,Driscoll for eg) and looking at the money he wasted (especially for a club Prestons size) on a bunch of non entities , and took them down to 16th meant that LS dropped a major [email protected] in appointing him.
  17. As i said in my earlier post he has been criminally underused by both Laws AND Irvine............................the guy has never had a chance of a run in the team , as soon as he has one bad game he,s dropped and not seen again for two months...............................whilst other players (we all know who they are) can seemingly play badly week on week and still get picked. I have a horrible feeling that Blackwell will snap him up if we offload him..........................................or maybe nearer the mark Warnock will do what he did with Quinn and Bromby.......................sign him for nothing , make him look twice the player he was at Hillsborough , get two good years service out of him , then sell him for circa £750,000
  18. Even the eternal sunshine mob cant disguise this [email protected] of a season...........................................loyalty is a wonderful thing..................................UNQUESTIONING loyalty can be just as harmful as no loyalty at all.
  19. Yes he inherited a sack of poo , but weve got exactly what i thought we would from him........................an improvement in the goals against tally , but stultifyingly boring going forward , i said when he was appointed that he wasnt the right choice (should have been Warnock) but we,re stuck with him even if we go down. The reason for this being that instead of being cute about it like Bristol City have done with Coppell ( one year rolling contract ) we jumped in feet first with a THREE AND A HALF year deal. So it looks like he,ll get his chance to build his own team...................................i hope he proves me wrong but i,m not in the slightest bit confident that he,ll turn us around.....................................and if investment does come i hope to god we dont give him free rein with the coffers if his signings at Preston are anything to go by!
  20. A little birdie tells me that some of the young uns have already been released.........................they just havent made it public yet....................dont know why
  21. Yes he is annoyingly incosistent , but the point that Kivo et al are missing is that when he does perform he posesses the ability to score and create goals....................a quality that is in chronic short supply in our squad. IMO he has been criminally underused by Laws and Irvine.............................if your saying he doesnt deserve a shirt because he has played poorly at times then you could say that about ANY of our squad. He is quick , direct and hits a ball hard , and would have been the ideal replacement for Johnson at half time......................instead we got dough ball Clarke YET AGAIN! I,ve been saying for a long time that striker is both Johnson and Esajes,s best position as it negates the need for them to defend which is quite clearly the weakest part of their game. Surely next week you would like Irvine to say to these two " go out there be direct and scare em to death "...........................instead you just know we,ll have to sit and suffer an hour of Soares and Clarke.................................thats presuming we,ve still got something to play for of course.
  22. As good as his word................................thank god Watford are still involved.
  23. Warnock was top of my list as well...........................................LS claimed it a ludicrous idea , and i asked him why (he never replied) , as the guy has won promotion with FIVE different clubs , has left any team he managed in a far better state than which he found them , and crucially for a team in our financial predicament an excellent record in the transfer market. Yes he makes the occasional bad signing like any manager , but one only has to look at his signings at Palace over the last year ( McArthey , John , Lee , Ambrose , Danns etc ) and compare them to what weve signed !!! I fully understand that his appointment would have split the fanbase initially , and i dare say he may have taken some flak but once he had a close season under his belt and the fans could see the improvement in the squad and performances i guarentee they would have started warming to him. One thing hes always had is PASSION..................................yes this causes him to act like a bellend occasionally but i for one have been longing for an Owls manager like this for years. As for the blunts..........................................i honestly belive that Warnock is the type of character that would revel in irony of it all and would relish the chance to put one over his former club (did anyone see his reaction to Palaces last minute equaliser at the Lane last season). Its no coincidence that his teams are very rarely gubbed.............that they always seem to score at the death............................and that they opponents nobody wants to face.............................................................as i posted to LS at the time his record at this level is second to none and if his surname was anything but Warnock he would have been top of the list. His appointment wouldnt have been an easy one , indeed a very brave one but ultimately i believe the RIGHT one.
  24. I said Irvine was the wrong choice when he was appointed (and took some fearful stick on here for it) , and im afraid i havent seen anything to change my mind. He is a dull , negative manager and even if we miraculously stay up the playing style next year will alter little...............................im afraid to say his lack of bottle - foresight - ambition call it what you will cost us big time today. The lack of substitutions in a MUST win game was quite staggering....................................FFS Spotland here we come!
