  1. Adam Reach

    Spineless t0ss3r, bottled that header, bottled it against hull. Not fit to be a professional, never mind wearing our shirt. Total pr8k
  2. To be fair the festive season could be a turning point for Reach, there's a big hot dinner coming up which I seriously doubt he could tackle at the minute....now if he can just manage that, and work his way up, who knows.....
  3. Similar to a few on here, one of a long line, my Dad was brought into the 'family' by his Grandad, I'd guess he probably saw the league wins of the early 20th century. A tough old miner who was working down the pit well into his 70's, his last day was when the pit closed, apparently there's a pic of him somewhere and the only white bit on him is where the tears have rolled down his cheeks. Anywho, it was no option but to be an owl.....taken to my first match in 1992 for my 7th Birthday. I'd begged to go earlier but I think my old man's (RIP Dad) inherent tightness, disgust at the industrial language and the Hillsborough disaster meant I had to wait. All this despite being able to name all the scores and every goalscorer from the Will to Win/Fight for Promotion (I reckon I still could get 70% correct now......ask me about a report I read this afternoon and I'm all on knowing who sent it me!).....so, finally, the first match. It was West Ham at home and all I wanted to do was watch Chris Woods (I know, I know), we went one nil down and then big Viv equalised, from a corner I think....Another corner, I can still remember the commentary from Fight for promotion (I'm thinking I was put in front of the TV too much at this stage)....'If ever the eyes have it', and bang, it's 2-1. At this point there is a massive slab of symbolism (I think that's the correct term) that had I been wise enough I should have acted on. Being a shy child, and indeed adult, I did not want to go to the front with all the other kids, so we found a nice quiet bit of the kop and I sat on the crush barrier with me old man holding onto me. As the second crashed home he celebrated like a good owl should, completely forgetting me as I totally lost balance, toppled 3 feet backwards (it felt like 10) and cracked my head against the steps, tumbling down a couple more steps for good measure and losing me scarf....I can see his face as I was in mid-air thinking 'B7gger, if he comes back with a cracked open skull I'm in some reight bother'.....fortunately I was fine......there's too many jokes I could use about it being a headache ever since etc Anyway, apologies for the self indulgent post, I just love threads like these, takes me back to the real reason we love football....not page after page about money and conspiracy theories. WAWAW
  4. Dislike

    Belgian blue is not my friend. To summarise, i don't like adam reach and numerous others who are bottlers. I was excited about adthe ffs.... And roamin......
  5. Dislike

    However, i really really don't like our players. The above were spineless, bottlers, cowards...we seem to make that the norm now. Reach, fletcher, butterfield, wallace, matias, lee, every full back, rhodes....flip off.
  6. Dislike

    I very rarely come on here, i fully admit it is to vent and i hope there are similar minded folk....so here i go. I normally like wednesday players, and by that i mean I'm irrationally loyal and will back ashley Westwood to within an inch of his back pass, I can think of only a few players i really dislike.....de bilde, bothryd, sedgwick, potter... I'm sure there'
  7. Player ratings

    Darren potter mkII. I bet he's amazing in training, will skin peopke, tackle, just look r8 good Put someone who wants to win the ball in real life near him....bottler. He literally has nothing about him. Great football technician. The worst football professional (on the pitch) I've ever seen.
  8. Give your heads a wobble

    Nail on the head
  9. You utter cowards

    Obvious cliche aside it is a funny game. Better players win matches, our better players do enough running against Brentford etc and get away with it....but... hard work goes a long way too,look at the fa cup. You need both, no successful team ever didn't work hard.
  10. You utter cowards

    Erŕrr, they keep going until some other mug pays them? That hurt today, more than a lot of derbies have before. They are garbage, and we rolled over and had our tummy tickled.
  11. You utter cowards

    We don't need to go pal, its going to be the same. They'll be up for it, we won't.
  12. You utter cowards

    Hehe. I'm a touch angry!! I don't mind losing to a better team. Losing to a team who want it more,care more and are paid a quarter as much royally f00ks me off. Especially when it's so obvious 3 weeks in advance
  13. Not fit to manage or play for the club

    I think impose yourself on the game, care, try, tackle, run would mitigate most of these circumstances....who starts that?
  14. I've ranted before about this so i apologise, but our players are pathetic. This has been coming, and weeks off, we do not earn the right to play, we're soft, we don't like running, we never enforce our style of play against the opponents, we let them do what they want. We play a perpetual cycle of pre season friendlies. Utter garbage. Cowards,bottlers, n0bs, you disgraced yourselves today. Don't worry though lads, you'll get 6th and 30k a week.
  15. Spineless

    Ahhh, the classic 'I know I can't get hurt as the player is sideways/has his back to me/running away but a slide makes me look like I'm trying really hard and not neshing it' tackle. We do that a lot
