  1. Thought I read that season ticket holders would be granted access to ifollow for home matches only until the ground is reopened for limited number. No news for what happens then -
  2. I was beginning to think I follow is better than going to the actual match :- no parking problems no 70 mile round trip ( especially on cold December nights when we have lost again) can have a pint and watch the match at the same time - at a reasonable cost nice warm pie / cup a tea at half time no que for smelly toilets at half time no contact with arrogant south Yorkshire policeforce what's not to like !!
  3. thought David Hirst might have figured on your list? even if we have fallen out with him ! Would be interesting to see goals per mins on the pitch stats - big Dave would I think figure quite high.
  4. 1.Sack Monk immediately. 2.Employ Sam Allerdice as CEO / Director of Football 3.Bring in Paul Cook (Wigan Manager, he will be out of a job soon). 4.Reduce season ticket prices - for those already paid include all next seasons cup tickets home or away. 5.Re assess pay on the day prices encourage new supporters - more kids. 6.Re price food and drink prices to reasonable / fair pricing. 7.Restructure scouting system, and recruitment 8.Recruit players with correct profile, younger, hungry, with potential. 9. DC to only be involved at arms length
  5. To think I have already stumped up for next years season ticket, looks like I'm in for another year of pain and anguish and ruined weekends - when will this nightmare end !!!!!!!!!!!! This team is worse than the 1970 s lot
  6. If all the clubs in the championship went into admin and then took a 12 point hit, all things would be equal and we would all be free from debt - just change the name a bit e.g. swfc 2020 - jobs a good un !
  7. crap service - cant log on, but not surprised at all after previous experience with I follow.
  8. Virtually zero information from the club or I-follow on how this will be implemented. From my previous experience with I-follow I guess this will be another shambles on Saturday afternoon. Hopefully radio sheff will be on the ball.
  10. Would be good if the Owls shop was relocated into the new development, knock the old one down and create a fan zone somewhere where it would be comfortable to have a drink and a pie within the ground on match day - and reorganise the entrance and exits to the north stand and Kop. Don't suppose it will happen the club does not seem to plan anything beyond the next match day under the current regime.
  11. perhaps the club could include cup matches next season for those who have bought season tickets on the early bird scheme. Mind you that could be just the two games, one league cup and one FA cup match !!
  12. Will it be postponed ? hope so - at least it wouldn't be another weekend spoilt..
  13. Too late for Wilkinson I think (to old) but if I was DC I would give Sam Alardice a call and ask him to come in as director of football - put him in charge of recruitment - he is a big personality and is what the club needs in order to give the coach ( whether its Monk or someone of his choosing) proper direction and get to the bottom of what has gone wrong and sort it out. DC should have learnt from his previous mistakes by now and accept that he is part of the problem.
  14. 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?
  15. 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.
