  1. Nigel Worthington

    People of my age (35) when doing their all time greatest Wednesday XI are pretty much guaranteed to name the same back four. Nilsson, Walker, Pearson, Worthington. He was a brilliant player. Great crosser of the ball.
  2. AVFTEB/Spitting Feathers

    I found one the other day in my mam's loft mixed in with a load of Beano annuals. I had a flick through and found one letter about offloading out of favour players. This particular writer had decided that Gordon Watson was surplus to requirements and said, and I quote: "Sadly, a club like Southampton or Chelsea could be on the cards for Flash." My, how the tables have turned...
  3. Woods was at Wednesday til 1996. In the last three years he barely played a game because Pressman was miles better.
  4. He wasn't dropped for Turner or Woods. They were dropped because he was better. I have been going since 89 and he is by an absolute light year the best keeper we have had in that period. His performance at Anfield in '96 is the best I've ever seen from a Wednesday keeper. There was one double save from McAteer and Fowler that defied the laws of physics.
  5. Entitled is the word I'd use. Nine years ago we had to sell our keeper to pay a TAX BILL. This is the best nick our club has been in for twenty years. Jaysus.
  6. Same reason Carlos has right now. He had a huge resource of talent but he couldn't get them to work a system. I don't think it helped that he had an aging squad and had to by necessity replace players that were considered legends. Pearce in for Pearson, Nolan in for Worthington, Taylor in for Palmer... It killed all the momentum.
  7. We're the first team he's managed for more than one season. Maybe he just runs out of ideas.
  8. It was a miracle that he stayed on the pitch in that game.
  9. Your new PIN

    I need about seven passwords for various systems at work. They are all either SWFC1867, Wednesday1867 or Wednesday161295 (the date we beat Leeds 6-2)
  10. Same squad numbers as last season?

    I quite like Kieran Lee being number 5. Bit Zidane-esque.
  11. Donnelly and O'Donnell.

    Brilliant link, cheers. Although I suppose it's great that the game is so much more family-friendly these days, I do miss a good on-pitch dust up. The one between Arsenal and Man Utd in 91 was great. Different game nowadays. Remember when Des Walker nutted Simon Milton in 94? He got a two game ban and fined two weeks wages. He'd get ten games for that now.

    That was pretty much every old firm game wasn't it?

    I wouldn't have got on the wrong side of Graham Coughlan. Chris Woods was allegedly quite handy as well.
