    Switzerland, hence the name!
  1. I would absolutely love it if we drew. Anyone know when replay would be? I'm coming across on Monday 28 Jan for 10 days. I'm one of these part timers who only goes once a season and there's no other possibility.
  2. On the kop at Anfield for Milk cup semi. I half leapt up after 2 mins when we nearly scored then remembered to keep quiet. There was a 7 yr old scouser sitting on barrier behind me shouting filthy abuse at the 12000 Wednesday fans at other end and kicking me in the back. I kept quiet and kept my parka zipped up to hide my Wednesday shirt.
  3. I'm all for strengthening the squad but the key word is 'strengthening'. If we sell Reach for 10 million we need someone better to replace him, say a 15 million player. And we're going to buy that player for what 6 million? How does that work? If on the other hand we're still buggered due to the P&S rules, then we have to accept that we need to sell him and buy whoever we can for considerably less money. Or buy nobody at all with the money. Isn't that more realistic?
  4. Unfortunately it dunt work here in Switzerland for usual 'contractual' reasons
  5. And check out Hull City in 3rd div north, unbelievable but true... they had a crowd higher than our BDM!
  6. OK I understand there's a big difference between that explosive sprinting power for 20 secs. and endurance meaning you can keep going all day.
  7. Is there a medical name for 'legs have gone'? I hear it a lot on here but can't get my head around it. Unless you've got an injury, your athletic performance isn't going to change much from one season to next, is it? There isn't a cliff edge that you suddenly drop off (aside from Brexit). So do you mean he's got a chronic injury?
  8. Might have been his chest, I didn't get a very good view of it from the side terrace
  9. Lethal with his upper thigh at Mansfield.
  10. They've certainly got more panels than fans!
  11. Here's my local stadium, built 3 yrs ago. They really went to town on the solar panels
  12. Yes, it extends to 5 and a half pages reaching almost 3 foot 6. You're welcome!
  13. I understand you don't like Carlos but what have you got against punctuation?
  14. I was born and lived within 6 miles of the kop for 18 yrs before moving to Hull where I continued going to most home and a handful of away games each season. 14 yrs ago I moved to Switzerland to ease my tax situation (ha ha I wish!) I now get to 1 or 2 games a year when visiting me folks. The biggest difference is how I try to switch off after a defeat. I'm not surrounded by fans of other English clubs taking the wee wee or amongst other equally depressed Owls fans. So I just try to think oh well next fame will be better. I've always been an optimist. At least I can see my beloved turf at Hillsborough when I go and enjoy the comfort of the sumptuous blue seats in the North... I'm pretty fed up now though and think it's time for a change. I'm just not sure if we need to change the players or the manager or the chairman or his advisors or....
