    Sam Hutchinson

    We beat forest and L**ds when he played last season. His experience, leadership and quality would all make a difference to our team (which lacks all of those attributes).

    Sam Hutchinson

    Hutchinson was no better and no worse than anyone else in that first half v Brentford. In fact the only player to come out of the game with any credit was Cameron Dawson.

    Two full backs needed

    I agree he’s not a full back but wing back is slightly different. More emphasis on Getting forward and there should be defensive cover from the left sided centre back (Pudil or Thorniley).

    Two full backs needed

    It’s a real problem area for us. I’d be tempted to play Reach at LWB. but then who plays right wing back? Boyd?

    Please play Joao in a 2 today....

    Agree we don’t have the personnel for a 4-4-2. I would go with a 3-5-2 today as well: Dawson Lees. Hector. Pudil Boyd. Onomah Hutch Jones. Reach Joao. Fletcher

    Your Questions for the fans forun

    I'd ask whether he can quantify that statement e.g. how many fans told him to sign Rhodes. I'd also ask whether he can verify that they were actual fans e.g. does he have their season ticket / membership numbers etc?

    Your Questions for the fans forun

    My question would be, given the amount of investment he has put into the club, why has he not just gone out and hired a proven, top class manager, ideally, with experience of managing in the Championship rather than out of work, unproven (at this level) overseas managers that next to none of the fanbase have even heard of?

    Your Questions for the fans forun

    It's not necessarily about getting an English manager. It's about getting a top class, proven manager with experience of the Championship/English football. This could be someone like Jokanovic, for example, but not Carlos or Jos.

    Why is our defending so bad?

    A powerhouse midfielder, a powerhouse midfielder, my Kingdom for a powerhouse midfielder. Gets Jones, Abdi, Butterfield and a plethora of strikers instead (and even the strikers aren't the type we need).

    You could drive a bus through there

    I'd play Hutchinson at right back and, if not at right back, Centre Mid. Either way he could fix one of those problems.

    On the plus side, with our defence, there'd be no casualties.

    MEGSON as DOF?

    Would also prefer him as manager right now. But Chansiri needs some football people around him that have got Sheffield Wednesday’s best interest at heart. Megson fits the bill as does Wilkinson.

    Send For Him

    It’s all opinions but I think we would have gone down had Irvine stayed. I thought Megson did a good job to put the brakes on our slide down the league that season.

    Serious Candidates?

    In addition to being out of work for at least a year and you’ve nailed it.

    A plea to Chansiri

    Chansiri needs to surround himself with people who have the club’s best interests at heart. And take advice from them. People like Wilkinson and Megson.
