  1. The inference being that this is a significant change from the previous regime: and so when we say that during BL's time the squad over-performed, maybe we're wrong and it's the other way about. Maybe BL was not "the ultimate professional", and who did leave stones unturned, and left things to chance. Maybe we still can see him as Wednesday's best manager for years, but under the unforgiving glare of "ultimate professionalism", the paintwork of the last three years begins to look decidedly cosmetic. You can't dismiss the opinions of as senior a pro as Michael Gray, and it's what he doesn't say that's deafening. I'll be there on Saturday alright. Nice one, Micky. UTO!
  2. I hate the fact that clubs like Man U etc etc etc can get away with debts of £700+ million.
  3. A bit too dry for the dampness of the morning's intellectual capacity, perhaps... Keep reeling, hugeowl....
  4. Only a couple of days ago (before the Barnsley game) I predicted automatic promotion with 88 points. Game on! Come on you blue & white wizards!!!!
  5. OS has odds of 20-1 for Owls to win 0-2. A frenzied little tempter, that one! UTO!
  6. Just what I thought. Scary. The Good Lord help Burnley if true, but it's all in the past now, and I'm beginning to feel mighty relieved BL's gone. The future's bright, the future's Blue & White! Off to watch the FL Show...
  7. I've never "attended a turnstile" in my life.... A couple weddings, maybe, funerals and the like; even the Small Claims Court once, but a turnstile, no, I can't say I ever attended one of those... But it's sure to be an excellent Sporting Event anyway.
  8. I've said it elsewhere on Owlstalk, but the departure of Russ Willcox is a Good Thing. It might help to make training fun rather than brutal.
  9. A close escape for us! AI or NW? No contest.
  10. I understand it's good therapy for anyone suffering from TUOS, and who is a little bit hyper as well. Totally Unfounded Optimism Syndrome is bad for you, Alan, and I hope you, Billy and Rob get well soon.
  11. The departure of RW from Hillsborough might be one of the best things about this business. It's hearsay from ex-players on my part, but it just might be that he wasn't universally liked, as it were.... Conversely, on their WW interview from the Middlewood Rd tent, I thought Rob Kelly and Billy Barr came across pretty well.
  12. If we win all our remaining games we'll finish on 88 points... Two fat ladies say Wednesday get promoted!
  13. Fantastic. Wish I was 20 again.Good luck to him and come home safe.UTO!
  14. Fantastic!!!Well done folks, a brilliant effort! http://www.owlstalk.co.uk/forums/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif http://www.owlstalk.co.uk/forums/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif http://www.owlstalk.co.uk/forums/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif
  15. What happened to last night's blog? Surely not too tired? I need to hear what happened at Bedale and Beyond! Did that jumping gear get sorted?We demand to know!
  16. Do you have any details of approximate timings along the way? I live only a mile or two off the route, in Richmond (on Wednesday, day 2, I guess), and I'd love to come out to cheer you on!
  17. Which bit of "I'm clicking like fury on the button" is it that you don't understand?
  18. It's currently nowhere near good enough, IMHO. The old one was much better, which is something I wouldn't say about the rest of the good work being done. NO WONDER S/T SALES NUMBERS AREN'T GOOD ENOUGH. If 13,169 people have managed to buy one, HOW MANY, LIKE ME, FRIGGING WELL CAN'T???? Yours faithfully, Mr. Very Angry Owl. PS Sort out the billing address testicles above, whilst you're at it, Ms/Mr Onlineticketperson, pretty please.
  19. Can this get any more infuriating????? Can anyone out there tell me what to do once I'm logged in to the online ticket page on the OS, I've been welcomed, and I'm clicking like fury on the tix I want to buy? Because absolutely nothing happens!!! I HATE WASTING MY TIME FRIGGING ABOUT ON CRAP ONLINE TICKETING WEBSITES!!!!
  20. Congratulations Wakefield! I'll have one as soon as it's on the shelves. Is the Owls Megastore going to stock it?
  21. Hello devonshire owl, Just to let you know my £20 is in the post.... Be good to know how much we've raised. PS Sunny-ish on the remote island of North Yorkshire, and a light SE breeze to fill my sails....
  22. A Brilliant Idea! Well done Sir Devonshire Owl. I feel ashamed I didn't think of it the moment DA left. This is what SWFC is all about. I was 9 when I first went to Hillsborough, I'm 52 now and I remember it like it was yesterday. Can someone help me to understand how my donation will get to this specific initiative, and not just to the Smile tix, if I use W'ite PayPal? Old and a bit thick, u c.
