    New dead ball specialist/s needed

    I am hoping that we mix it up tomorrow. Let us see if anyone can take a better corner of free kick than Bannan. This also gives us more of an element of surprise. Who knows what Reach or Fox for example may be capable of?

    New dead ball specialist/s needed

    Just to clarify Reda and Miguel Liere were great at scoring from set pieces. Yes, we do not possess players with that ability but imo we are not maximising the opportunity with Bannan taking nearly all the corners and free kicks. We need to mix it up a bit.
  3. We have not been strong at dead ball set pieces since the Reda/Miguel Liera era. I have been very disappointed recently in Bannan's corners and on Saturday his free kick delivery. Surely we need a right footer taking corners down the left hand side to swing the ball in. Bannan constantly overhit the outswinging corners last night. A change is needed in who takes the corners and free kicks in my view.

    Well done Wednesday

    I think there has been a huge over reaction on here. Away at Millwall on a Tuesday night in mid-February is never going to be a cake walk. Millwall are physical, organised and aggressive which is why pretty much the same team that played last night beat Everton lying 8th in the Premier league a fortnight ago. And Everton were really up for it too. We were appalling under Luhukay and managed two clean sheets in virtually half a season but now we have four successive clean sheets. Our improvement may come in incremental steps rather than instant transformation.
  5. Yes, I really agree with Quist when he says that: The front five do not have enough goals in them. FF has not recovered goal touch yet he has been absent for a long time and will take a while. Reach has scored with some wonder strikes and will score a few goals but rest are well below what you need for a successful team at this level. Fletcher works very hard and play is good all round but a centre forward needs to score goals and his record says he does not. Joao or Winnall are only two who may be able to do this but think neither would be prolific. Where are the goals going to come from is the big worry. Short term we need to have Bannan practising shooting and keeping it low day in day out. He got in several good positions on Satuday but he either passed of blazed the ball high over the bar. Winnal is probably the best poacher we have with Hooper out. When we signed him he had already scored about 9 for Barnsley by Christmas. I hope SB will give Winnal a go.

    Defence so much tighter

    Yes, Luhukay created most of the problems. He created the Frozen Out group and the impact on morale was of course disastrous. As Room0035 says: I understand building for the future but if Jos had stayed in charge with his insane plan we would have been in league one next season. It took a while but well done DC for getting rid.
  7. I wrote to the Chairman and CEO back in those dark days of December with clueless Luhukay still in charge. Like many on here I said that what we need is a proper manager who knows the Championship. Well done DC for giving us that. I was though surprised by the post of OSowl who said: First proper manager since Brian Laws! What a state we've been in for so long. Ok ok Meggo was here but just the knowledge and charisma Bruce Well Meggo did well to turn round a sinking ship and did well like SG, PS, Sgt Wilko, Big Ron and Big Jack. Laws however recruited Jeffers, Purse, O'Connor and Potter and thereby sealed his own death warrant.

    Thank You, Mr Chansiri

    The questioning just seemed like the wrong time and occasion to me. The bigger issue is that this Chairman has actually put significant money into SWFC. Yes, he has made mistakes with his choice of advisors but hopefully now he seems to be learning.
  9. I really felt for him yesterday with that clown of a journalist trying to derail and destroy the Steve Bruce welcome. It was completely ill-timed and innappropriate. We really should celebrate Mr Delphon Chansiri and show him some afftection. It is not so long ago that we had the snake Richards as Chairman who kept "Fancy Dans" Wilson on as manager thereby selling us down the river to land his lucrative role at the Premier League. Then later we had Dave Allen as Chairman who felt it was necessary to sue a Wednesday fan suffering from cancer just for stating opposing views. Maybe we do not really appreciate how fortunate we are.

    Morgan Fox

    Pudil does well at left CB but not sure about full back anymore. The semi final agaiinst Huddersfield and the defending down the left when we were 1-0 up is still fresh in the mind.

    Who would like this back.

    It is good that Waterfront has been restored, no doubt due to fan presssure. The very disappointing thing yesterday was that we won which was great but no playing of "You never felt more like singing the blues" at the end. It makes you feel good leaving the ground. I have the Terry Curran version on vinyl and would happily lend it to the individual who organises the music at Hillsborough.

    Morgan Fox

    Pudil is too slow at left full back now imo. Fox is improving and having a consistent back four is helping.

    Morgan Fox

    I thought Fox played very well today. He did not let the wide player ever get by him and blocked off any crosses into the box.. He also adds a bit of height and strength at the back. It is hard to believe that this is the same player as before. The new Lewis Buxton. Well done Morgan Fox.
  14. Thank the lord that Luhukay is sitting motionless and staring silently into mid air somewhere on the continent. With the worst form in the Championship under him we would have been very deep in relegation trouble by now. To be fair Irvine was worse than Dross as he was given money to spend and was an arrogant, condescending pillock too. Luhukay cast a pall of death over the club and team with his Frozen Out group. Yet today Westwood, Hutch andf Boyd all played well and Jones was on the bench. We should not forget though that a number of those who post on Owlstalk wanted to keep Dross Luhukay in charge.
  15. South Yorkshire Police Force is the most incompetetnt orgaisation the world has ever seen. They should have been disbanded after the Rotherham teenage girl grooming scandal. How on earth is SYP still in existence?
