    Nuhiu isn't the answer

    Goals/minutes would be useful too if you have the time

    Can you do the stats with goals per start, or is that what you've posted?

    Fighting in the stands

    I'm struggling to get my head round this incident. Wierd behavior on 2 fronts 1) fighting amongst ourselves on the opening day is just pathetic (frustration at our current situation is no excuse) & 2) no smartphone footage that I know of. In an age where every fart makes YouTube, no sign of the chaos that's been discussed here to my knowledge. Get your act together away fans :-)

    I don't think Palmer has shown anything to suggest that he's anywhere near good enough as a first choice defender for a team with ambitions at the right end of the table. My opinion of his abilities has largely been formed by the memory of his showing in our Carabao Cup defeat at Bolton last season. He was by no means the only player who had a bad game that night, but he was the only one who looked like he'd given up at 2-0. Have a look at their 3rd goal if you're wondering what I'm on about. I'm not one to get on a players back during a game, but nor would I ever agree with anyone who claims that he's good enough for a team with ambitions to contend. I'd love to be proved wrong as he looks likely to be a regular statrer this campaign, but he's a significant downgrade on Hunt for sure.

    If Hunt leaves....

    A one game sample isn't much to gamble on for a team with ambitions at the right end of the division. That said, you may be right re Baker & it does sort out the funds needed to bring in Vacenzio

    Dour and attritional.

    Why are folks yearning for expansive football? I'd have taken the results we achieved against the pigs , Cardiff & Midds if they were offered beforehand. I won't be happy with the same result against Brum, but I'm looking for a win against them, not an exhibition in football skills.

    Chris Wilder’s Comments Last Week

    It was good to see him stood on the touchline totally out of ideas last night. There's been too much talk of Wilder being some sort of tactical genius this season, so yesterday's game was a welcome opportunity to at least challenged that myth.
  8. Will always remember his sending off at Huddersfield...it was the highlight of a 0-0 draw. Last few minutes & he got his marching orders. He pulled off the slowest walk to the touchline ever & the Hudds fans were going crazy. Just before he got to the touchline he sat down on the pitch & started unpacking his boots. The place almost exploded. A bit of a mercenary as were a few others at the time, but a genuine talent too & a hero to all Owls fans that day
  9. I don't get the obsession with stripes . My first Wednesday shirt was this seasons style back when John Ritchie was wearing it as our no. 9. The style of shirt was never a factor then, so why does it generate so much angst now? Support the team & moan about the genuine issues, like being in a tailspin down the table.

    Loan players required

    Trouble with this plan is that all the best loan deals seem to happen at the end of the window, when the parent club has given up hope of a sale. Bringing folk in now would suggest bagging a prospect from a PL club, but that's always a gamble given the lack of experience

    Salomon Kalou

    Not just the Germany link here though. Looks like Jos brought this guy to HB during his stint there

    Lee Bullen

    That should be Jos has a use for him

    Lee Bullen

    This won't be a sentimental decision. His has a use for him & that's fair enough. However, the last few games have exposed his shortcomings as a main man

    Season ticket refunds.

    A whiff of BS rather than Katerina I reckon. Don't believe it for a second - legally dodgy for a kick off.
  15. Ah, should have picked up on that. Too early
