  1. Lovely shirt but that photo is straight out of Private Eye's Up The Arse feature...

    On Jos...

    That bit about commitment from directors is the only part that worries me, given the likely FFP pressure coming our way...
  3. Lovely article - I really thought around 1992 that the side would be built around Hyde and Ryan Jones in the late 90s. By contrast, I couldn't stand Danny Sonner - a pound shop GH.
  4. 1st; Shez (although Maclean and Pieman are good shouts) Last: JR at the moment, alas.
  5. When did we start selling replica shirts? I vaguely remember most of Dublin wearing Liverpool/ Everton/MU/Celtic shirts in the late 80s but can't think of many before 87 or so...
  6. Love the 90-91 shirts. I've still got my replica home shirt from that year (my first ever) - and at XL, it fits just right in a way that it didn't when I was 16. No idea where I lost the 90-91 away shirt, alas...
  7. Meltham (just over the hill from Holmfirth) - 40 mins drive from Hillsborough if it's quiet. Overrrun with brand-new Huddersfield / L***s fans, though (but not this week)...
  8. I was born in the middle of that run – as a Wednesdayite, that feels more fitting than, say, having been born on 21/4/91…* *worryingly, I didn't need to look that date up.
  9. There are at least eight shockers in the 30 years I’ve been following th’Wednesday – and that’s not even counting Carlos or Jos. 1 Terry ‘Yorath’ Nutkins – there was a palpable air of despair on the pitch in 2001-02. Plus Leon Knight. 2 Danny Wilson – where the Wednesday wheels really fell off. 3 Chris Turner – great as a player, bloody awful as a manager despite some decent recruitment (Brunt, Whelan). 4 Paul Jewell - Higher on the sh*tlist if all of the transfer decisions were his – Ashley Westwood and Ian bloody Hendon. 5 David Pleat – I’d kick him to the kerb but he’d only cr(snip – OT lawyers) 6 Dave Jones (higher if it weren’t for his League One exploits) Was the Darren Potter corner debacle under him? 7 Peter Eustace – not around long enough to get higher but impressively awful. Another great Owl on the pitch who ruined his S6 cred off it. 8 Alan Irvine. Nice badges, though. Quicker to name the decent managers in that period: chronologically, Wilko, BFR, Trev...BFR again...tumbleweed...(Shreeves, relatively)....more tumbleweed...KPS, Brian...Meggo...Stuart Gray (never got a nickname?), Carlos (first season).

    From the horses mouth

    Is it just me or is Nando looking worryingly Partridgesque in that photo? That jumper is seriously Sports Casual...

    No Almen Abdi today

    Phil Scott was the frustrating one for me - looked great in the handful of games he played for us but never recovered from the first injury he picked up with us in late 98... Lordy, I hope this generation doesn't take after that one - the amount of talent we had ruined by injuries (McKeever, Billington, every single Scot except Steve Nicol we signed in that period, Ryan Jones a few years earlier) was horrendous.
  12. What's Potter up to these days?

    Racism in English football

    That reminds me of Charlton away about a decade ago (when Wade Small scored a wondergoal for us). There was a bunch of teen Stone Island \ Burberry twunts behind us - one of them kept shouting about one of the black Charlton players "Kick him! Kick that n*****!"... to JJ. Thankfully, they were wusses and piped down when my then-gf and I told them to STFU. Just as well; she would have kicked the crap out of them all...

    Jo’s - not very good

    I'm no happy clapper (I wanted Carlos gone six weeks before he went) but I'm willing to give Jos the chance to show what he can do with a full squad and a proper transfer window \ pre-season before writing him off. The current shambles is no situation in which to judge a new manager properly.
