  1. I feel that Bullen has a lot going for him, but the one thing that I do believe that he doesn’t have going for him that is crucial, especially at this moment in time is the contacts in the game. For me that was the Major plus with Bruce not necessarily his managerial abilities.
  2. It’s hard to be consistent when you’ve been plagued with injuries for the last two seasons.
  3. I understand that there are those who refuse to go to games at the current prices, I also understand that there are those who just simply afford to go to any of the games full stop, but the ones who confuse me are the ones that say that they would be able to attend if the prices were less expensive and won’t be attending the Sheffield derby for that reason. Surely if there is one match in a season that it is well worth seeing above all of the other games it is this one, and I’m puzzled as to why if it is a financial decision not to go, why not start putting a few bob away each week in advance of the fixture. I have always been fortunate enough to be able to attended all of the home games, with the exception of 5 games since the 1970/71 season and I would never look down on anyone who wished to attend the games, but simply could not afford to. However if I was in that situation by hook or by crook I would find the means to attend this game.
  4. What about the Becchio diving handball against the L**ds scum (the game when Kirkland was assaulted by one of their fans?
  5. This squad hasn’t been good enough for the last 18/24 months, and for some that realisation is only just kicking in. I for one didn’t expect a massive upturn in form when Bruce came in and that’s down to the inept squad that he has inherited. I only hope hope that the fans are patient with Bruce because he has a massive rebuilding job to do, and it’s not going to happen over night, but I am very confident that he will eventually improve the squad and move us in the right direction.
  6. Spoke to him any many an occasion over the last few years about Wednesday, lovely lovely bloke. No matter how bad things were at S6 I never heard him criticise the club or the team, he always looked on the positive side. Sad sad news, god bless Mark and sincere sympathies to your wife and daughter.
  7. Let’s not even mention the fact that he took us to within 90 mins of the Premiership, also the fantastic occasions that the fans experienced that season like the Brighton game, the Arsenal game and of course the trip to Wembley, all occasions that will live long in the memory for many a fan, especially the youngsters who will never have witnessed atmospheres like that before.
  8. Apparently Carbone managed him as a youth team player in Italy back in 2011. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/amp.hitc.com/en-gb/2019/02/01/sheffield-wednesdays-move-for-newcastle-uniteds-achraf-lazaar-en/
  9. I actually thought that Bannan was one of the players who could hold his head high tonight along with Tom Lees.
  10. Some really poor performances today but for the 2nd game running Reach was by far the worst player on the pitch, wouldn’t tackle, wouldn’t run into space, passing was wayward and wouldn’t work back whenever he lost the ball (that was just about every time he received it).
  11. He certainly doesn’t have Brunt’s strength and vision, I suppose only time will tell but I honestly can’t see Reach being as effective as Brunt has been in the Premiership for the last decade or so.
  12. Yeah all of that is fine and obviously all pluses, but what about is weakness in the tackle is unwillingness to engage in 50/5’s, is ability to give the ball away quite often whilst in advanced positions. I also happen to think that is distribution is poor. I personally thought that last season he was beginning to look like the player that no doubt we all hoped he would be but for me this season and especially of late he has showed too many frailties to be classed as a top class Championship player.
