  1. Interesting that you say CC didn’t want him as that contradicts the chairman’s statements that CC was responsible for our signings.
  2. Jack Hunt injured AGAIN!

    What about switching Boyd to rwb and Reach LWB?
  3. God I Miss This Team

    I had to go on their kop that day so got a decent view of it. I vaguely recall being concerned he was going to get sent off for it.
  4. I’ve got one of those programs somewhere along with the match day ticket. Passed down from my grandad who was there that day.
  5. What stopped us?

    Exactly my point. It’s got nothing to do with a Labour council and everything to do with having massive backing from very wealthy owners.
  6. What stopped us?

    Liverpool, both Manchester clubs and Arsenal have done ok and all in Labour strongholds.
  7. What stopped us?

    This in a nutshell. We have rarely had a combination of having a good manager with financial backing in place at the same time. When we did, under Big Ron, we won a trophy. Had we given Wilkinson the financial backing he got at L**ds I see no reason why we couldn't have won something (possibly the league title). Unfortunately, when we did have the backing we never really had the right manager in place. Francis just couldn't get us over the line (a common theme throughout his managerial career). Then as we moved through the 90s in the Premier league we never had the right manager in place (apart from briefly with the return of Big Ron) and were not really able to compete financially as the other clubs took spending levels to another level.
  8. Blast from the past - Lee Chapman

    Can’t think of a better diving header than Hirsty’s away at Barnsley.
  9. Time for an Experiment?

    Ironically, playing him would support your point a). Imagine if he scored a goal or two in the last three games you could probably add another million on to what we would get for him.
  10. Blast from the past - Lee Chapman

    A couple of his goals that really stand out for me was a left foot half volley on the turn v Forest away (lost 3-2 I think) and going clean through on goal away v Oxford and chipping the keeper (won 3-0). Met him in his bar, So UK, on Clapham High Street and introduced myself as a Wednesday fan to which he replied "poor you". Couldn't really argue with that!.
  11. Hull City 0 - 1 #SWFC - OMDT

    Playing 4-4-2 poses a number of problems for us. Who plays left back? Reach is not really the answer as he is just not a natural defender. Who plays at centre back now we are without the trusted old Lees Loovens partnership? Pudil could replace Loovens as the left sided cb but not sure if Lees Pudil would work in a 4. And on to the big question; the make up of the four man midfield and especially the central two.
  12. On This Day 25 years ago

    Wasn’t that the game we got fined for fielding a weakened team?
  13. Four at the back - why oh why?

    I’ve been in favour of a 4-3-3 but at the moment we don’t really have a good enough left back. Until we do I think Jos was right to go with a 3-5-2.
  14. #QPR 4 - 2 #SWFC - OMDT

    If people are getting frustrated with the 3-5-2 formation try explaining to your wife how spotty teenagers are making millions posting videos of themselves playing computer games.
  15. And as he writhes on the ground whispers into his ear ‘gi us stripes back!’
