  1. Completely agree, must be a nightmare for defenders when you are tiring, facing a fresh Nuhiu pushing and shoving you, he is a really good option to have for the last 15-20 minutes.
  2. Who is the cruel sod who bought a seat between Blunkett and his Labrador?
  3. I have been through it once, on a night game against Manchester United in December 1996. Home fans were in the bottom tier back then, but you had away fans mingled in with you who had bought a ticket in the home end. It was really weird, Carbone scored and half the stand celebrated, then they equalised and the other half celebrated. it was quite eery walking through a tunnel, but then you get through to the other side and you are faced with one of the best views on planet earth of Hillsborough under the lights.
  4. Yes as long as you download the app. There is this disclaimer at the bottom of the ifollow page. You also cannot screen mirror from the app Live matches and full match replays are unavailable on iOS and Android mobile/tablet devices via a browser. Please download the app by clicking on the appropriate App Store image.
  5. But the ‘e’ is the button for the internet.
  6. You can watch any of the non live ifollow videos via your TV browser, but the only way I have found to stream live ifollow is to hook up either a laptop or desktop with a HDMI connection. Also don’t use the Microsoft edge browser, it cuts the connection for me every few minutes.
  7. He was the right goalkeeper at the right time. Every successful team needs a character in the dressing room and he was it. Wasn’t he the person the started the whole MASSIVE thing by phoning up football heaven every Monday and saying it every other word. I remember in the 4-4 draw with Huddersfield he had 2 chances to slow the game down and kill it off in the late stages. Instead he tried to kick the ball out of play. On both occasions the ball just came back within seconds. Unfortunately they equalised on the second time. Never left a game so disappointed.
  8. Without having the social interaction of colleagues during this work at home period, The Wednesday Week podcasts have been great. Just put in my headphones and work away on my laptop. It is really refreshing to hear a footballer speak, without the pressure of a media manager behind them, so you get to hear about a fall out, or how they were actually feeling about being dropped, or missing out on a big game. The Matt Hamshaw interview last week could have gone on for another 2 hours and it still would have been too short.
  9. Sorry to be a pain, I meant this one https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1907219021/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_c_api_i_IXM0EbGT4HHVY
  10. Yes it’s a fans view of following Wednesday and England. He says the words “Girlie puff” quite a bit, but it has some interesting stories. Especially when the rock up at a millwall pub.
  11. I love Carlton Palmer, as a player he was very underrated by both the media, and the team running the England national setup, probably because he doesn’t look like a footballer. I would also go as far as saying if he didn’t come back to a Hillsborough in 2001, bringing Stuart Ripley with him, we would have gone down again. He also has a bit of a chip on his shoulder, with good reason. Imagine being good enough to play for your national team (whilst playing for an unfashionable team), but having grown men walk up to you to tell you that you are the worst England player ever. However, some of that interview wasn’t quite true. Ryan Giggs did not play in the 1991 cup final (I think he means Lee Sharpe) and Chris Waddle was 31 (not 38) when he signed for us. So, I think his comments about the docked points are a little misguided. It was also filmed before Christmas, probably before DC came out fighting on the 17th December.
  12. I put this on the Owls fans trust survey yesterday, the players that have gone were not replaced with like for like or better. Wallace was a player who could change a game if plan A was not working, goals against Fulham away in that first season spring to mind. Hooper was a natural finisher. Lee (I know he’s still here, but he isn’t the same player) was not replaced with someone of a similar quality Helan had pace to take the pressure off if you were under pressure (watch the end of the second Brighton leg) Hunt had pace on the right hand, he wasn’t replaced with similar quality The last point, which is probably controversial, we don’t have a natural captain. Someone who is the go between “the lads” and “the gaffer” and someone who doesn’t mind if a video of them dancing with no top on ends up on social media.
  13. It’s been 20 years but it still makes angry. At the time the club were very good at saying, he has sent in Doctors notes and won’t play, but basically he just wanted someone to say, he did wrong, let’s draw a line under it and let him play football. Bought for £4.5m and sold for £1.5m when he didn’t lose any ability, what a great bit of business.
  14. Whilst I am not looking forward to watching televised football behind closed doors, I am intrigued as to how some players will perform without the crowd which can turn after a few mistakes. Reach is someone in that category, he frustrates the hell out of me sometimes when he fails to beat a player, doesn’t get a tackle in, or takes a shot that you know is going high and wide from the moment he pulls his leg back. But, his stats suggest that he does make a difference, so what will he be like in a game where he isn’t afraid to make a mistake?
