  1. Super. £100 worth of Owls face masks on their way in time for the second spike.
  2. I’m sure I heard the Arsenal subs singing “is this a library?” at one stage of their game.
  3. A couple of initial thoughts. The OP mentions soon opening membership to the Supporters Trust. For a survey about pricing, why isn’t their a question along the lines of “how much is reasonable to join the trust?” The survey can be filled in by anyone. Not limited to Wednesday fans. If the Pigs did one, there’d be a link on here and people told to fill yer boots. It limits the validity of the results. Similarly, it can be filled in more than once. I accept that it’s difficult if you don’t have a data base of fans. But there’s a ready made explanation for any conclusions that you (the Trust) don’t like.
  4. How do you see this working when we have variable match day pricing? I think we should move back to a single price, but that’s unlikely to happen. So if you had, say a 10 match season ticket, won’t many fans just pick the “bigger” games, the more expensive games? And how many of these 10 game season tickets do you sell? What if they all save their last match for the season finale? Some might find there’s no seats left. Im sure it can be made to work, but it’ll be very complex, with many irritating limitations that will create as much annoyance as the current ticket arrangements.
  5. I thought Ryan Jones was going to be mega for Wednesday. But like Ian Knight, not to be. He was phenomenal through the midfield. Probably unfairly overlooked as he came not so long after Carlton. But he’s the best we’ve had since CP, even though he was inexperienced and played so few games.
  6. Good point. But to do that, we need to cut down the moaning at the refs, and accept that they’re doing their best in difficult circumstances.
  7. Is it fair to assume that when the third round draw is made next season there won’t be the regular calls for a “big team”? We never get top teams at Hillsborough. We always get [email protected] draws. We get a top team and many can’t be arsed. Talk about disrespecting the cup. Nothing to do with managers concentrating on the league when there’s fans like ours about.
  8. When the N is full the concourse can be a bit crowded, but it’s nowhere near as bad as many away ends: Leeds and Villa spring to mind. If anywhere is dangerous, those two are.
  9. The EFL, yeah them, should introduce a rule to ban any loan payments (including wages) for “youth” players under 25. Why should poorer league clubs pay to develop rich prem club’s players? But without a strict rule clubs will compete and take the gamble and, over all, waste money.
  10. Probably agreed a nominal fee, and promotion and future transfer add-ons.
  11. Yesterday’s goals were our first from open play since Forest. Last two at Forest, both at Stoke and v Cardiff, from corners. And a pen v Bristol C.
  12. Don’t underestimate Reach’s role in that goal. Yes, Bannan’s perfectly weighted pass made it easy. No need for a controlling touch. Just look up and pass. Yes, Nuhiu being the only player in or near the box made the decision making easy, and his perfectly timed run made the pass relatively simple. But... Reach is the nearest we have to Bannan in “seeing the move unfurl in his mind”. Had it been Harris or Murphy on the left the likelihood is that they wouldn’t have been ready for Bannan’s pass and it would have either rolled out for a goal kick or Bannan would have turned and passed back to Borner. Harris and Murphy: speed and ball control. Reach: anticipation and vision.
  13. Today was the third time that we’ve “defended” a one goal lead by scoring an injury time decider.
  14. I think a goal in the first minute of his debut suggests otherwise.
  15. Reminded me of Bannan - Pudil - Wallace. 1-0 v Arsenal.
