    Fans Forum Cancelled

    Slightly ironic that the university appears to be worried about trouble from our fans when there was posting on social media about our advertising boards getting smashed up at the varsity match earlier this year ...

    Andy Hinchcliffe

    His main contribution when he did manage to play was to consistently hit corners so long they missed every single person at the far post
  3. To be fair, I do agree with you on this one. It’s our worse, their best, and we all know they will fall from grace. Especially when this is as good as it gets for them, the piggy oinkers. Onwards and upwards all, WAWAW!
  4. If you’re comfortable with holding your head up high, carry on . I’m not .
  5. “Top team in the division “ it is this kind of defensive thinking and undue respect that has seen us play like tonight , like we are the non league team playing away at the big premier league team it’s a total disgrace
  6. Care to expand? Are you fricking kidding me? care to expand? Apart from the game I watched , which we’ll come back to shortly, let’s look at something objective like the stats on the BBC. They say: possession : 75% to 25% to the blades shots: 19:7 to the blades shots on target : 5:1 to the blades corners: 12:4 to the blades fouls: 5:11 to the owls I don’t think any of these are stats any team should aspire to, no matter who they are playing. And make no mistake about it, we played scared. We played like we were up against Man City away, not a bunch of fat chancers who couldn’t even find it in themselves to beat our sorry heap of crap. I can’t remember a shot in anger , apart from that fox miss, and even then it wasn’t him. Yeah so we got a point. I’m very happy we didn’t lose to them. But it if anyone thinks that’s how we should play, or what Sheffield Wednesday is, or should be , you are as bad as our disgrace of a manager and I’d suggest you should do one
  7. I’m sorry but if as Sheffield Wednesday we feel it is acceptable to turn up to anyone, never mind our biggest rivals, as though we are a non league club trying to land a punch on the big premier league team , it is not acceptable . It is not acceptable and I don’t accept it. We never tried to win tonight. We got lucky. We got a point but can we hold our heads up- don’t think we can , really the only silver lining is that we are at the bottom and they are at their best, but they are not good enough to go up on this showing

  11. Yes. The point being, if someone wants to put something like a bomb in a back pack, they can do so and simply wonder down close to the ground and mingle with the crowds going to and/or leaving the match. They don't need to go near the turnstiles or get into the ground. The point I am making is that by banning rucksacks from the ground itself you are not necessarily making things any safer, it's an illusion and though we'd like to think it would make a difference, I doubt this ban would stop someone sick enough to try. In the end, it isn't possible to remove the risk of someone doing something like this by banning rucksacks, or briefcases, or whatever, in a situation such as this where you have large crowds. . The reality is that there's not much you can achieve by banning things here and there, if someone wants to do something then it's pretty difficult to stop them, sad though it is. For what it's worth, I'd argue personally they'd be better off closing Penistone Road to traffic completely before and after the game if they want to improve safety more.
  12. Backpack ban is a massive pain if you are taking smaller kids with you and have to carry all their stuff around because it means that you can't be hands free when walking to and from the game and trying to hold their hands. Also, I don't see why banning backpacks makes you any safer. If people are going to do something they have plenty of opportunity outside the ground.
  13. This. Carlos is a nice guy and I really wanted him to succeed, but you can't just pretend yesterday didn't happen nor that performances have not been good now for over a year. Ultimately, the aim is to get promotion. We will not achieve automatic this year and to have given up on this by the end of September is out of order. Our only chance is the play offs and we are going to have to get a wriggle on to get into those. As that's the case, we may as well make the change now, there is nothing to gain from delaying. And to all those saying how do we know we can do any better - do you think that shipping four in at home to the pigs for the first time in our history means we can get any worse?

    Kieran Lee interview

    When he did play, he was a very consistent corner taker. He consistently over hit them by two yards at the far post every single time. Almost as useless as potter and his floaty corners

    chanel 5

    Heh that praise was said with gritted teeth. That Fulham player seemed scared of us. Also it was good of the female presenter to point out to a Fulham player at the end that Fulham would need to fear a penalty shoot out

    Just imagine the excitement there would have been when we signed Wim Jonk . 100's of pages turned out well

    Ask the Experts

    I believe you meant to refer to red and white dog s h i t e and the answer is : it's been in league one for ages
  19. At the minute. So how to sort it? Sack Carlos? Not for me. He's not the one missing decent chances up front. For me i would prefer to upgrade our centre forward and right back with some power and pace in the next transfer window. I don't think fletcher or hooper will get us out of this division , and the number of goals we let in from our flanks is starting to become horrifically predictable

    I was there today. We were loads better than most games this season with Hutch in the middle and loovens at cb. In fact most of our problems defending started when hutch was subbed off. For me it is clear - hutch should stay in middle .
  21. One can only assume everyone is working very very hard for Sat. Let's hope so any road

    Interesting article

    About Richie but interesting for comments by Pleat on the "fading stars", Seriously, how can you rate Atherton and the like above Waddle and Sheridan.... https://www.theguardian.com/football/2016/sep/30/golden-goal-ritchie-humphreys-sheffield-wednesday-leicester

    Interesting article

    No I have a proper job. even if by then they were past it (Sheridan - whose game was never built on pace was 32) they were still miles better than the journeymen footballers who came in to replace them. In my opinion, Pleat was the catalyst for much of the bad times that followed in the way he took apart the team too quickly. Why we appointed him I have no idea - any Leicester fan (where he had been previously, and dismally, at the time would have told you it was a bad move, and so it proved, in my view).

    SAG Freedom of Information Request

    Thanks The Regulator for getting these. Hopefully it will shed some light on what at times from the outside looking in sometimes seem to be strange decisions regarding the use of the ground.
