  1. By the time squad numbers came in, fixed numbers had long since stopped signifying where a player was playing. As someone earlier mentioned, Waddle wore 8 on the right and had worn 9 at times for Newcastle and Tottenham IIRC. Steve Nicol had played in every outfield position for Liverpool but had worn number 4 in pretty much all of them. And in 1992 and 93 alone Chris Bart-Williams wore every shirt from 5 to 11 but played in three/four different starting roles max, not seven. Under Atkinson and Francis we would see Pearson playing sweeper wearing 11, or King at left-back wearing 5, or Palmer w
  2. Think Odubajo has a point. I remember turning up for the Bristol City game before Christmas expecting the place to be bouncing given we were heading for third and our best tilt at the Prem in 20 years but it was flat as hell for 80-odd minutes, as though everyone was waiting for the team to get us worked up. That's emblematic of our season. The vibe just wasn't there regardless of the results. Maybe that's because of what is/isn't going on in the boardroom, or because Monk football has been generally formulaic and short on inspiration for the most part, but I feel like the fans hav
  3. Geoffrey Richmond at Bradford reacted to their best season in a century by signing Carbone, Atherton, Nolan, Cadete and more and ended up calling it his summer of madness. I wonder what Chansiri will call 2016/17 when he looks back on his Wednesday reign.
  4. Whatever his reasoning, I don't see that we're any worse off for saving upwards of £100k for the sake of no more than two or three starts max given his physical condition since December.
  5. IIRC he hasn't played since Wigan, which was when Monk came out afterwards and said it was basically the end of a few players.
  6. Why would Fletch, for instance, sign for another month when he's not fit enough for one game a month let alone eight? He's done us a favour. I wouldn't put my career in the hands of Garry Monk given the chance either.
  7. The long-needed overhaul comes now. Unfortunately there is every chance it will be A) done in League One and B) in Garry Monk's vision
  8. Tbf, there were a fair few calling him out at the time. It's just one of those things that his Wednesday career never got back to the level of the previous season.
  9. The fact he's only signed for the extra month suggests they'll need to see more from him to be convinced he should stay.
  10. What we'd all give to go back to Norwich away Aug 2016 and persuade the club to get whatever they could for Forestieri.
  11. Fletcher also struggling with injury of late. Will do him well to rest up for the next month and find a new club in relatively good shape rather than on the back of a manic four weeks full of games he's barely fit for.
  12. Couldn't you be transporting germs into the stadium in doing that? Don't think it will be allowed.
  13. Waddle had always been more accustomed to playing on the right (partly because of all the skill and deception he had in his locker) Reach is a good left-sided player being shunted out of position and wasted as a result. Such a waste of good centre forwards having the ball played behind them or at an angle which better suits defenders. Play an outswinging ball in behind defences, between them and the keeper, and it just begs a striker to attack it.
  14. Would always prefer Westwood when fit, tbh. Made mistakes this season but at least leads - and generally gives confidence to - the back four with authority in a way Dawson and Wildsmith have never managed.
  15. Seems from the wording as though they're hoping there can be a resolution in the next fortnight and the game can get played (presumably in the week of the second round) but the fear is the situation will only get worse and we'll end up with a bye. Would rather we played. We only have to think back to 2010 to realise that we weren't far from what Bury fans are facing right now.
