  1. One thing Ive learned all these years watching footy,its not the sums of money you spend,its the wisdom in which its used.And thats true even in todays game
  2. Im going for Palmer today,seemlessly switched to LB,two shots both on target and a goaline clearance that was critical,had that gone in,theyd have brought defenders on and closed it out.
  3. In a few of the papers we were linked with him while he was at southend,what a signing that would have been!
  4. George Best,he was some player,always played well at hillsborough too,superlatives are often used to describe him and all are accurate. Even our own fans loved watching his skills and applauded him,I once sat a row behind three teenage girls with owls scarves on and they screamed and stood up when he was on the ball or used some of his magic,twas like being at a beatles concert,long day,great game as well
  5. The list is a long one,but Wolves are a club that we seem to struggle against right back to when I was fairly young and I used to dread games against Shrewsbury!
  6. Never thought Id be giving Jordan Rhodes a MOM,but pleased and suprised to do so,rammed a few words down mi throat,like others Ive given the kid some stick,but he was on it from first whistle charging down a clearance so well done lad. Fantastic team performance yesterday,Im from a nottingham based family and have absolutely LOADS of family in Nottingham,so Im extra chuffed,a very sound team performance,proffesional and very hard working. Just hoping Tom Lees isnt a long term casualty. WAWAW
  7. Really pleased for Jordan,hes had some hammer during his time here,but that goes with a big rep and price tag,if he can keep a regular supply of goals comming it may leave us with a big problem come january with his contract running down,but its a problem I hope we have!
  8. Our lass has made me a special tea tonight
  9. And if he picks forward passes when theres nowt on in front he gets it the neck for crap passing
  10. We needed a second,but looked solid at the back,the refs crucified us on the pen,it was shoulder to shoulder,no more. Kick in the teeth,but were used to that this season
  11. Hutchinson,he was everywhere,winning tackles,headers,driving foreward,inside left,inside right,fullback CB,CM,CF,had a stormer.
  12. Offensively he offers plenty and looks a handfull,defensively hes indecisive and dithers or mistimes tackles. Calamatous for the goal,he got both hands round the smallest man in the box,who then squirmed out of his grasp to head in,had the player not scored,it most likely would have been a pen anyhow
  13. We have,theres two new beds in the hospital wing,those two wore the others out
  14. The bigger you dig the hole,the further the EFL make you fall,might not be the wisest policy given our past in the transfer market,ageing multi millionaires sending in sicknotes all season
  15. Not really,Ive supported Wednesday all my years so I know were more likely to be the next Lincoln City
  16. The huge bombhole in our accounts from the reckless spending means any fee for Lees wouldnt even make a dent,so its not worth even contemplating
  17. Age is catching up with him,he no longer has that blistering pace that made him a threat out wide,centre is his best position,as he can still motor over a shorter distance
  18. Both our FBs got a roasting today,but we had the extra striker and that made a huge difference as did FF,he drags the side foreward and makes things happen,skillwise hes a cut above the division,and when hes on song,hes a class act and that shone through today,yes he muffed a sitter,we muff em most weeks thats why were a champioship side,were not clinical,but at least today Fletcher had some support. In fairness to chorlton,they had a horrendous injury list,but gave us a game,nice touch from Fletch at the pen,the keeper tried his best to shake him,but right under the refs nose,he got it back with interest and didnt like it,shot his gob off got booked,kharma *****!
  19. An old lass on a mobility scooter would look good alongside Fletcher bud,theyd go about the same speed
  20. It was certainly more watchable and a far more honest game,far more open and entertaining,untill we started playing in europe,English sides employed more european type tactics,reference Don Revie and his constant trips to watch madrid and their tactics were employed by leeds in the 60s,he called proffesional,we called them cheats,these days its rife in english football. I barely watch europa or champions league these days,but back in the 60s/70s you wouldnt miss it,if only to see the antics of the euro sides,diving,spitting,time wasting,getting opponents sent off,it was pure drama and the european sides were the queens of drama. These days its hard to seperate them,at least we played hard english style football back in the day,these days both sides just fanny about its totally unwatchable
  21. Dawson Boerner Lees Hutchinson Reach Bannan Luongo Odubajo FF Nuihu Winnall
  22. Ive no problem with an Owls captain urging or doing his best to inspire players out on the pitch,thats what leadership is all about. Bollockings should take place in the dressing room,away from the supporters and the rest of the squad,thats the mark of a leader,if he bollocked me on the pitch,Id just chin the little to$$er,he certainly wouldnt do it twice!
  23. Not a single name on any of those lists would make my all time XI, bench included,during almost 60 years of watching Wednesday. Most would struggle to make a reserve XI.
