  1. If as is currently being said, the sale of the ground took place after the max allowed £39 million three season debt, had been exceeded, we will probably be punished in some way with a points deduction. Thus righting off our promotion chances this season. However if this is true won’t the £60 million received for the sale of the ground now counts as current season profit, therefore what is to stop the club taking a hit this season with a view to investing heavily next season with the £60 million that should be in the bank?
  2. I've supported the Owls for more than 60 years and it seems to me that its now in our DNA to find ways of loosing from winning positions, it started in 1966 FA cup final and seems to have been the case ever since ( with exception of the league cup final). I can't remember when we last came from behind and won a game, but this season alone we have conceded goals in the last few minutes of games and dropped enough points to have put us much higher in the league. A two nil lead at half time never gives me certainty that we will win a game. The only periods in my lifetime when we have had a team with real belief, have been when we have had managers who are able to transmit confidence, nouce and belief into the team i.e. Big Jack Charlton, Howard Wilkinson and Big Ron (may also be CC for a time). I think that the current squad is good enough for the top six but could do better than that if they had more confidence in themselves to play out games with more nouce and had a real will to win / not getting beat, were more ruthless and looked, for example, for easy fowls, throw ins etc to disrupt the flow of the game in order to close out games - like every other team in this league seems to do.
  3. Parking gestapo were out in full force today. Why is it when a big crowd is expected, extreme parking restrictions are put in place such that there are less places to park. Anyone would think SYP don't want us around...……..mmm
  4. Conner Wickham, doing nothing at C Palace, did OK last time. Loan out Rhodes and Winnal
  5. thought he had got out of bed on the wrong side yesterday. He argued with anyone in earshot, proper rollockings not the type of thing you expect a goalkeeper to do in helping to organise his defence. As for the goal, I think he saw it late as it came through a ruck of players so I would put it down to that - not time to write him off yet.
  6. I exited the north stand as advised, on to a very crowded Penistone road with half the north bound carriageway coned off to allow traffic through whilst the other half supposedly used for pedestrians. However cars and buses were trying to force there way through, as people attempted to cross the road to get out of the crowd and over to the car park. / pavement on the south bound carriageway. There were also a number of buses and cars parked within the part of the carriageway which was supposedly for pedestrians which therefore acted as a barrier and forced people over on to the carriageway in front of moving traffic. If the current situation prevails it is only a matter of time before there is a serious accident. Risk is calculated as likely hood of an accident and likely consequences we now have lots more people crossing and walking along a busy road. Well done SYP and SAG you have increased the level of risk for the majority of us for the sake of a poorly policed one off incident last season.
  7. People who arrive late after the kick off (usually stinking of ale) and want to access their seat and everybody has to stand up / make way for them - FFS you know what time it starts get their on F-IN time. Then after 10 mins need to go for wee wee and repeat the performance - if you cant hold it don't drink it.
  8. I'm in that picture somewhere in the middle, Uraguay had two payers sent off as I recall. By todays standards they could all have been sent off ! Brutal match Beckenbaur was immense, was number 5 but was a midfield centre half.
  9. No need to rush Bannan back too soon, calf injuries can take a few weeks to heal, Luongo could come in in the middle against a robust Millwall side, but I think Murphy will be replaced by Reach initially and come on after an hour or so.
  10. OK if we accept this very one sided report based upon one match, with no input from the club or anyone who was there except of course SYP. The conclusion is all home fans must now exit on to Penistone road or the bridge over the river from the south stand. Therefore the away fans will have Leppings Lane to themselves. Why then have the club been requested to restrict away fan numbers to 2,000 surely we could have sold out the west stand, with no risk to anyone exiting at that end of the ground? The risk has however been transfered to all of us home fans exiting on to a duel carriageway and possibly a new flash point at the junction of Leps lane and Pennistone road as the away fans head to Claywheels Lane where their busses will no doubt be!
  11. Why not leave things as they are and see how it goes. Give it until November and if going well offer Bully a substantial bonus if we get to the play offs, doubled if we are promoted. If things don't go well appoint new manager in December. If we were promoted I think we would need a new manager any way.
  12. eeeeek Star are reporting Zola now favourite !!!!! failed everywhere he has been. Hope this is just press talk.
  13. What about the ex Fulham promotion team Slaviša Jokanović with Stuart Gray if not Hughton or John Terry ?
  14. not good today It was Jos type square pass football in the first half - no creative play at all, and hoof ball in the second half - hope we have a major clear out of negative players who are afraid to go forward and who don't have the bottle for a fight and a will to not get beat.
