    Sky Highlights - Wigan

    Lovely build up play and finish. Their defending when Fletch was running at them reminded me of ours under Jos

    Chelsea lack confidence

    Will Higuain be cup tied as he wasn’t their player when the tie was announced?

    Stewards and Medics on the kop today.

    I used to do first aid at Hillsborough after leaving school, and as far as I know the same company still provides first responders and EMTs that work alongside the paramedics and ambulance service. I can’t speak highly enough of the people I worked with - they were all lovely folk who were great at their jobs. Glad to hear you’re alright Salmonbones and I hope your little un is too.

    Adbi playing for U23's

    I think he did. Anyone know if he was any relation to Billy Marsden, who played left-half for us in the 1920s and went on to run a number of pubs acrosss Sheffield?
  5. Jordon Mutch released by Palace. I’ve not seen him play in a while but remember him maybe being half decent

    Wednesday -V- Luton (FA Cup) OMDT

    Also thought he had a good game. Is it just me or were their players all huge? Reminded me of playing U12 footy against teams from pit villages where they’d all be 6ft+ with a full beard

    No movement in box there. Palmer should’ve just had a pop

    Team v Luton

    I’d play as strong a side as possible. Luton are going well in L1 and we will have had 4 days to rest, with another week until our next match. Might as well try and have a bit of a cup run
  13. Absolutely the best manager we could’ve got, credit to DC and whoever else was involved in making this happen

    3 Year Plan

    Completely agree - we’ve had rotten luck with injuries over the past few seasons and along with poor management they have contributed to the mess we’ve had to endure since the play off semi defeat to Huddersfield. The likes of Westwood, Lees, Bannan and Reach are good enough for any team in this division. On their day, Fletcher, Joao and Matias can be as well. We’re starting to see what Boyd can do, and we all know what Hutch and FF can do if they stay fit. If we can sign Hector permanently that would be a great bit of business. We’ve got some good young players coming through for the first time in years and Thorniley in particular has proved he’s up to it. Penney has the ability IMO but needs a bit more time. I think we’re two full backs and two central midfielders (and a prolific striker but every team needs one of them) away from challenging again. Hopefully Bruce will recognise where the squad needs work and act accordingly - we’ve all been able to see what needed doing since his Hull side beat us at Wembley but things have been a bit strange since. Your earlier post in the thread was spot on btw - I agreed with every word.

    3 Year Plan

    I think Bullen has proved in the past few games that we have a decent side, although we’re still probably a few players short of a squad that can challenge at the top. It seems that he’s simply gone back to basics and put round pegs in round holes, rather than changing the system and personnel every single game. We had a shocker of a season last year when Carlos lost the plot and was replaced by the even more clueless Luhukay, so after consecutive top 6 finishes we’ve essentially lost a season and a half. We still have the majority of the players that finished in the play offs two years running and there’s no reason a manager who has the track record of Bruce can’t come in and get us challenging again. I’m more optimistic about this appointment than I have been for any of our managerial appointments in years.
