    I was meaning as the players came out before kick off.

    Not defending the performances at all but it can't be easy knowing as soon as you get on the pitch and your name is announced you will be met with either stone silence or in a few cases booed before you have kicked a ball.

    An attack minded manager.

    Think last season proved that either can work if you have the players suited to that system. Wolves won the league playing attacking football. Cardiff finished second playing organised but defensive football. We are stuck in a weird limbo. Trying to play defensive football but also have our defence try and create from the back. Have arguably the best passer in the league but play him too deep.

    Nathan Jones

    He was the absolute drizzling shits. His greatest achievement was being kicked out of a Wrestlemania tag match alongside The Undertaker because he just wasn't good enough. Yes another big guy that Vince McMahon had a hard on for who didn't make it.

    Thought this was going to be a thread about whether the former Stocksbridge striker could do a job for us.
  6. weeing on the graves of both Leonard Cohen and Jeff Buckley. As such, it is the perfect metaphor for life at Hillsborough at the moment. Well played.

    Another Opportunity Missed!

    Was my initial thought also. Can hardly expect 90 year old grannies to treck out to Hillsborough.

    The Best Thing They Ever Did

    Chris Turner. Laying some basic foundations of a team so a better manager could take us up.

    15 Championship Clubs want more from Sky Deal.

    I wish someone would do a breakdown of what percentage of the Sky games are from the Championship. It seems to me that 95% are from the Championship so shouldn't 95% of the dolled out revenue (Not the whole revenue but the amount given to clubs) be going to Championship clubs?

    Away fans turnstiles at the Stain tonight.

    Simple question. Why wasn't kick off delayed. I would guess the Sky TV Gods said no.

    Curious and could do with help

    This thread title lead to a great disappointment.

    Bannan last niight

    My recollection is that he misplaced two passes in quick succession, but that was it. Was all over the pitch chasing down and blocking space. Was the only player who looked to bring us out of our own half. I honestly feel that people on here just reject players after a couple of poor passes no matter what else happens in the game. Seems to happen all the time on here.

    Chris Wilder’s post match interview

    Didn't see his interview but he sounds like he was the absolute opposite of Billy Sharpe. Sharpe spoke straight after the game with humility and was realistic about how they were the better side but how well we did to keep them out. And that was his gut reaction, 30 seconds after running around on the pitch for 90 minutes. Gained some respect from me.

    2nd November - #OnThis Day in Wednesday History

    Day before my birthday and I was convinced we were going to make my birthday without a win for the first time ever. Then this happened. Last good moment in Dave Jones' tenure if I remember rightly. A month later we had the last game in a terrible run over at Blackpool. I remember walking back to town after the game and I don't recall such a feeling of absolute resignation in the fans before or since. Everyone was at the end of their tether. I'm not usually one to call for the heads of managers but I and everyone else was convinced that he HAD to go at that point. Thankfully he was gone 2 days later and we then went and beat runaway leaders and champions elect Leicester in Gray's first game in charge on the Tuesday.
