  1. One thing that never ceases to amaze me is how fans feel they have a right to have everything in the public domain, even if said knowledge can be deduced from what we know already and even if confirmation of said knowledge would damage the club... just so they can sit back and go "told you so". Everyone knows that Westwood is the better 'keeper. It's not even up for debate. So let's allow Jos to do the job as best he can, even if he is having to do the job with one arm tied behind his back due to the financial situation. If we are supporters let's please accept that some facts are better left in the boardroom and on the training ground. The only thing we can influence is how much support we give, whether that is on the stands at Hillsborough, following the Owls away or even on the message boards. It's all connected.

    August: Terrible. Struggle for points. September - November: Start to slowly build momentum as everyone realises we are in this together. Siege mentality. December: Lose our way approaching transfer window with rumours of sales. January: Lose most matches due to instability in squad. February - March: Slide down the table into the fringe of a relegation battle. Calls for Jos’s head increase. April: A surge in form with some scrappy wins lifts us to lower mid-table. May: Players on holiday as we lose our final games and finish 18th-20th. Really hope we do better than my predictions.

    Big Sam anyone?

    We can’t judge Jos because we don’t know what’s going on behind the scenes. I’m choosing to give Jos the benefit of doubt and support him as far as reasonably possible. Don’t know if Westwood situation is down to Jos or not, after all...

    Westwood is 3rd choice - Official

    This is so farcical that it makes me angry. The way I see it there are a few possible scenarios here: 1. Westwood is close to triggering a bonus. If we are not playing him because of this then it will annoy all players at the club with these types of bonuses and it reduces our credibility in future contract negotiations. 2. The club believes he is the 3rd best 'keeper at the club. If this is the case, I have no confidence in the management and coaching staff at the club. 3. There has been a falling out at the club and Westwood is not liked. In any other profession this would be absurd. No one likes everyone they work with but you just get on with it. If Westwood is being omitted because of a falling out, then this is childish and petulant and an insult to the fans who pay top dollar to apparently see top players.

    Todays attendance at #SWFC

    My thoughts on the attendance and pricing are in my latest blog: http://www.nowwelive.com/the-not-so-quiet-mind-by-david-scothern/swfc-attendances-cs-sportul-snagov Bit tired writing it so apologies for any typos....

    Todays attendance at #SWFC

    I think, or should I say my worry, is that the divide between sections of the fanbase and the chairman runs deeper than just prices now. Seems to be a cultural/ego thing going on. Shame.

    #SWFC Six Match Ticket Bundle Deal

    Any more details? Will it be available to members only?

    Todays attendance at #SWFC

    I've had a season ticket most seasons for the past ten years or so. I haven't this season. A few people in my office have also not renewed. Chatting to them this past week, none of them had any intention of paying POTG prices. Can't say I'm surprised by that attendance. Fair play to those who went, but I've just been checking on BBC for score updates whilst watching TV with the Mrs. It's not just the fans now, but the future fans that are losing out.

    Sheffield Wednesday 1 : 1 Hull (sort of OMDT)

    Going to be a long season.

    #SWFC Megastore Improving

    I suggested this years ago. Where's my credit? It's such an obvious move; link up with local arts and crafts producers and sell their stuff. The club gets original merchandise and helps promote other local businesses. Might prompt me to get back to the store at some point now.

    Almen ad thi pants down

    Yeah, I must admit after posting it I started thinking about it and Jonk did play a fair bit. He did develop something of a (possibly) unfair reputation though.

    Clare joins Swansea

    Bizarre move for the player in a footballing sense. Can’t see him getting much first team action there. Financially he’s probably done well there.

    I'd love it

    I’m a little bit apathetic about it all to be honest, what with the heat death of the universe due in forty billion years. I mean, what’s the point in anything?
