  1. Think it's harsh calling him a crock considering his record before us. Doubt very much he gets injured in purpose. Also doubt very much the "wants to go back to London" rubbish is true as well. Standard Sheffield Wednesday curse.
  2. Thankful we've got Kieran Westwood and Tim Lees. Instead of Tim Westwood and Kieran Lee...
  3. Tactics are created in response to tactics. "Inverting the pyramid" is a fascinating read, and was written when the 4-2-3-1 (or similar with or without a "false nine" was *the* formation to play). Essentially predicted the one to outwit the 4-2-3-1 would be the 3-5-2 that we've seen incorporated in recent years. The next tactical step will again be in response to negating the 3-5-2. It's all cyclical. Managers playing fashionable formations because other clubs do won't result in success, completely agree. It's those who come up with ways to overcome it.
  4. Tap-ins and penalties don't count...
  5. Fully expecting us to get mullered. Anything under 4-0 would be a bonus. Shot on target would be nice.
  6. I'd say after his first game, everyone was unanimous as well! EDIT: To keep on topic... Steve MacLean (depending on how you feel about tap-ins and penalties...)
  7. The Cure - Disintegration Any Arcade Fire album
  8. I have a vague recollection of my Grandad (who would have been 10, almost 11 at the time) talking about Sheffield being bombed. Sadly, he passed away just over 20 years ago now. And the holder of said stories (my father) isn't worth talking to. Out of stubbornness, there's a whole family history lost that can't be passed down. Thank you for sharing your stories. Threads like this help me connect with my past in ways I no longer can.
  9. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/av/football/55116535 4:00 minutes ish onwards.
  10. Snog - Irvine: His girly eyes would mean I could justify it in my head. Marry - Monk: He'd never be disappointed in me, and wouldn't raise his voice ever. Avoid - Jos.
  11. Thought this was going to be "Snog, Marry, Avoid." Disappointed.
  12. https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/sport/football/5626986/qpr-marc-bircham-arrested-battery/ Another reason to give it a miss...
  13. I cannot make a formation out of that... =/ Edit: Unless Luongo is one of the back three????!!!!
  14. Ah no problem! And yes, my Grandfather (similar age and such) was of the same opinion. Was able to follow both teams, wanted the city to do well. Etc.
