  1. Wasn't aware West Brom have already beaten Norwich this coming Saturday.
  2. If we're not one of them but all 15 are above us in the league we should sit tight, hope they nob off before the end of this season and we're straight into an automatic promotion place.
  3. If £1.6m was deemed an acceptable offer for Jack Hunt, first choice right back with no obvious successor within the squad (to perform at the level required week in week out in the Championship) then I would assume that the offers made for KW and DJ were truly derisory and Mr Chansiri wasn't up for having his pants down for either. We can only speculate on what those offers may have been, and will never know if with hindsight Mr Chansiri may have made a different decision. Maybe he'll have learnt something from it and will make a different decision when he undoubtedly gets the chance to reconsider for either player, or any other players in the squad, in January.
  4. Have told this story on here before. This was my lads very first away game when he was 5. Went on the train from Stockport, had a couple of beers and grabbed a quick Maccies before the game. Train home, he said nowt just had a sleep, get home and his Mum says 'Hiya mate, have you had a good day? How was your first away game?' 'Mum...what's chlamydia?' came the reply He hasn't been allowed away since
  5. She goes out with our former loanee Jordan Spence, strange ...but true
  6. You won't be taking swfcjack27 jnr to the match again then?
  7. Yeah, decent beer garden, bet he'll be spending a few hours in it this week. Used to live up the top end in Moreton myself.
  8. Whereabouts in Bromborough are you? Best mate lives just over the road from the Three Stags, Bromborough/Bebington borderlands.
  9. 10 minutes down the road from me, when are they there?
  10. some joke about it being an honour to receive Sam Hutch in the (b)arca
  11. You're thinking of Newcastle under Lyme mate, near Keele and Stoke. The crap Ashton is about 15 minutes from you. Ashton under Lyne is near Stalybridge. ...and Ashton upon Mersey is in Sale.
  12. Brilliant - real tomato tomato stuff I thought Joey was excellent today, I don't think he made a single mistake or misplaced a single pass today. Felt that provided a critical component of an all round winning team performance.
  13. My lad had an U9's Cup Final abandoned on that pitch ... for fighting
  14. He won't have been sat twiddling his thumbs all season. He's probably got an agreement already in place with his next club. The wait will soon be over and we'll find out where he's going...then we can all move on.
  15. As mentioned on here before I live in Stockport and have married in to a Man United family. When he started at primary school my son George supported both Wednesday and Man United, but by taking him to Wednesday matches (and I think him also wanting to be different to the majority of United and City supporters at school) he chose to support Wednesday and ditch the Mancs. However, as he has grown older and become more aware of football, not least through playing at a half decent level himself for the past 6 years, there was always a risk that he'd see 'the error of his ways' and reverse his decision. The 2012 promotion season helped reaffirm his decision as he had decent results to go in to school and crow about to all his Manc mates. Going to City twice to see us dumped out of both cups didn't help too much and he got a fair bit of stick after the 7-0 but he stuck with it. BUT...our time under Carlos, especially the first season, has really confirmed his allegiance and he's now without doubt 'Wednesday til I die' . We beat Arsenal 3-0, it seemed like we scored the goal of the day EVERY Saturday evening on Sky Sports, he was in awe of the atmosphere the Brighton at home play off leg, he was devasted at Wembley ...but we got to Wembley to see the Blue and White Wizards play and he was convinced we were going to win that game down to the performance of our fans alone. He now has football heroes like Westwood, Bannan, Lee, Forestieri and Hooper, he even understands why Nuhiu has cult status now. For all of the above I'll always be grateful to Carlos. He's a thoroughly decent bloke and I wish him all the best wherever he goes next ...and I will always give him a warm welcome if he ever pays a visit back to Hillsborough. Merry Christmas and WAWAW.
  16. Ross Wallace reading the Huddersfield note
  17. Good stuff ... I lose track of all the Reddish teams. North End play in Blue and Yellow and have their own home facility? If so, we played them there in a pre-season friendly before last season, nice little set up with a decent 4G astro pitch! Respect league at Burnage Rugby club or down in Wythenshawe? The U12's are at Wright Robbie every week this season ... worst pitches the EMJFL use by a mile, terrible surface, more like the top of an old pan scrub.
  18. Who does your son play for mate? My lad has been playing in the East Manchester JFL since starting in the U8's when his team were U7's. Now in the U12's with Hazel Grove.
  19. Have heard from a reliable source that he'll talk to interested parties in January and get his move away at the end of this season lined up nice and early. Hopefully things will change between now and then, although at present I get the impression the situation is irretrievable and neither party is prepared to alter their stance to make that change happen.
