  1. If anyone has one available would great in either home or away end.

    Possible Signing

    Why would anyone like that join us?

    Possible Signing

    No just an opinion. Experienced, played top flight all his career, training with Man Utd. He will end up with a better club than us that’s for sure.
  4. Worth a risk? Shift out Hooper to MLS, Nuhiu abroad https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giuseppe_Rossi
  5. Inner city lads mainly go united. Having worked within the academy I have names of players that have been suggested to the club but the club didn’t take action, now these lads are at either United, Rotherham, Leeds etc. Missed the boat now and if they want them in years to come a fee will have to be paid. The club are very slow in getting players in when identified
  6. CAT 2 academy and the main issue now is that the local head of recruitment is only working in the Sheffield area. Other clubs are sending scouts out as far as Nottingham / Huddersfield / Lincoln where as Wednesday have pulled the plug on that at the younger ages. The only older ages 14+ from outside the city will come from CAT 1 academies who have released players. Example - Devante Rodney, was a City, got let go and came to us. I know we didn’t get a fee but I’m just explaing the process. The club are taking backwards steps by narrowing the areas

    Jose semedo

    The OP should be banned.

    Just got back...

    Haha took me a while. Just a point that we don’t play with real width a proper wingers under Jos. He has saved himself for another game. For him must win at Blackburn. I don’t see this happening tho personally
  9. Two awful teams. No quality on show and couldn’t have complained if it finished 0-0. My ratings dawson 6 - didn’t have much to do penney 4 - awful, reason why he couldn’t get a game at Mansfield thorniley - 7 steady, likes a tackle, plays with passion hector - 6 better than Saturday Lees - 6.5 progression, good header baker - 5 struggle to see what he offers attacking wise in this formation. Reach - 6 quiet pessey - 5 went missing Bannan - 5 myth matias- 5 poor in possession fletcher - 6 looked busy nuhiu - 4 rubbish fessi - 6 added more going forward joao - 5 not enough time to impress jos - 4 got lucky, times up

    Scouting policy

    Couldn’t agree more. Up up to u12 the club do everything in there power to sign players. After then not as much as they feel they have the right players who they have coached. Then at u16-u23 they look again for players who get released from clubs. Example of a few who are at the club baker thorniley jack lee

    Scouting policy

    Catchment area is 1 hour away from training ground. however, if you have a relative that live closer you can put on your papers that’s your home address and then no problem. example - live in Leicester but have an uncle who lives Rotherham

    What age groups would you say are now better?

    Scouting policy

    Ryder not as active now. Gregg Batten has been working with the club for a number of years. He’s from up north ( Sunderland Area ) and he’s been doing more of the u18 / u23 side. In all honesty Ryder is bee old school and out of touch now I think. If a players has been at X, Y & Z academy then Wednesday will take a look on a week trial or so. You’ll never ever find someone like Ryder or Batten watching a local game at u15 let’s say. Even for a final opinion. Their thoughts are ‘ if you haven’t been picked up by u12, your not going to make it’. shame really

    I agree Sheffield should be the key area but they are not looking anywhere like Lincoln Nottingham leeds worksop retford gainsbourough mansfield We have found players in these areas and they are still within our academy. We we are just giving other clubs the pick in these areas
