    Do we think George Boyd...

    If we go with a 3-4-3 as opposed to the 3-5-2 he could play on the right hand side of the front three. But he'll have strong competition from Joao and Matias (if fit).
  2. Kyle Bartley at centre back and someone like Tom Huddlestone in midfield. Reach can play LWB and Hunt and Lee can cover RWB.
  3. Agree with this. Would loved to have seen him play that number 10 role (that Williams used to play) alongside Hirst up front.

    Just got back

    Reach and Thorniley at wing back then?

    Just got back

    What formation did we play? Did we go with a 4-3-3 as the lineup suggested?
  6. Interesting that you say CC didn’t want him as that contradicts the chairman’s statements that CC was responsible for our signings.

    Jack Hunt injured AGAIN!

    What about switching Boyd to rwb and Reach LWB?

    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.
  9. I’ve got one of those programs somewhere along with the match day ticket. Passed down from my grandad who was there that day.

    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.

    What stopped us?

    Liverpool, both Manchester clubs and Arsenal have done ok and all in Labour strongholds.

    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.

    Blast from the past - Lee Chapman

    Can’t think of a better diving header than Hirsty’s away at Barnsley.

    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.

    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!.
