  1. Yeah I totally agree on the point about being a premier league loanee. Looks to me to be a classic product of a premier league academy. He seems to be used to having ages on the ball and thinking players will just stand off him and watch. For me, the best players in the championship are the ones who make it seem like they’ve got ages on the ball because of how composed they are under pressure. Onomah lacks that at the moment I reckon, but maybe Bruce is the bloke to get it out of him
  2. If the question is ‘which football manager most closely resembles Mrs Doubtfire?’, then yes, yes he is. (I think he’ll be great too)
  3. Got to disagree about DC spending nothing on the ground. There are many reasons to criticise him but there’s no doubt that Hillsborough is in better shape than when he came in
  4. In a similar way, I’m saying no marriage to Jennifer Lawrence for me this season
  5. 2 words in response to that mate: Burton Albion. That’s not to say I don’t agree it’s time for JL to go btw, just not sure Bullen is the man to galvanise right now. I’d let JL carry the can for the inevitable derby shellacking first, then get rid
  6. I’m in. Top marks for listening and making this available
  7. I think I probably fall into Neil’s original description. Been on Owlstalk for years, but mainly read stuff rather than post. Enjoy the craic on here and find it either therapeutic when we lose or enjoy basking a bit when we win. Been a member for last 4 years, was a season ticket holder as a kid but haven’t for a number of years due to work. Found the membership price rises really galling, I’d have put up with a tenner rise, even £20 at a push, but £40 is a wee wee take. Radio Sheff thing: won’t affect me massively to be honest, but I’m not the point. What is, is the people who can’t afford (or haven’t got the technical nous) to subscribe to something else. Just feels again like our chairman is determined to ‘shake things up’ without really knowing the nature of what he is challenging. To be the only club to refuse this deal feels again like being antagonistic for the sake of it and I’m not sure he’s got the credit built up to do that. I’m grateful he’s the owner, I’m grateful he’s got money. I’m not sure there’s anybody out there better for us. But with all that said, to sign absolutely nobody, to raise prices like he has and to pick these needless fights, all seems to be a bit strange to me and seems to speak of a bloke losing control, rather than gaining it.
  8. Always had a membership. They’re perfect for me as can’t attend every game but means I’ve been able to dip in and out and start to take my lad, who is 5 and just starting to properly get into everything. Felt like a good way to support the club too. Could understand a rise of a tenner perhaps, but this is just taking the mick
  9. Absolutely right, not life or death at all and not a big deal. I would argue that it’s not ‘some people’ missing out, it’s 80% of the fan base though and I’ve not seen anything that says it’s going to be available in ‘a few days’. Again, it’s not life or death if it isn’t, but it does seem so much harder than it should be to give this club money
  10. So I could 100% be jumping the gun and not right here, but judging by that website announcement: 1. I can buy the shirt tomorrow as long as I’m a woman 2. I can buy the shirt tomorrow if I’m under 4, or know someone who is. My lad is 5, so out of luck there 3. I can buy the shirt tomorrow if I’m stupid enough to pay £99 for it Why do we not just have it all available, straight away? Why are we having this mess about again? Why is it so hard to give this club your money? (I could have read it wrong and be jumping the gun, but it reads that way)
  11. Does this mean replicas won’t be available tomorrow morning? Just the women’s, kids and £99 versions?
  12. I’d say that we’ve made very decent returns on all the players you mention above. You can label the ‘made a packet’ accusation at any modern footballer, given the level of wages. All 3 players have been decent servants for the club and made big contributions to the relative successes of recent years. They’re coming to the end of their time with us, agreed, (although I reckon Hutch may still have a role to play at 28) but don’t really get the need to slate them for getting paid for their profession, and for getting injured. They’re not doing it deliberately
  13. Agree with all this. We seem to feel that we can get away with playing in short spells and it’ll be enough to win and that has to come from the top. One thing that should be glaringly obvious is that poor sides will throw the kitchen sink at you first 10 minutes. If you’re coming out and not up for what will be high pressure and physical, then that for me is a failure of the manager to set you up right. Like Carlos, but he’s run out of ideas and been found out now
