    Harry Wilson will be far and away the best player in the league. Super signing.

     

    and having played them away already we'll only have to face him once. Hopefully he can help Cardiff take points off those teams around us* 

     

     

     

    *once we close the gap a bit more and do actually have other teams around us 🙂

    Thought I'd start a topic just to see what peoples thoughts are on points deductions.

     

    Not the ins and outs of the rules etc. Facts are we have a -12 deduction

     

    I was pondering more on whether as a system it would be more beneficial to impose the rules whereby the deduction was given at the end of the season, not beginning (regardless of club) 

     

    Would it make a difference? Mentally for the players? Realistically for the competition as a whole starting on a flat 0 points across the board? The type of player that could be recruited? The tactics the coach would employ? Make it different aiming for rather than clearing arrears?

     

    Not looking for an argument just looking for peoples thoughts I know we can't change the rules or what happened so possibly a pointless discussion but still I'd be interested in knowing other peoples viewpoints

     

    Does a -12 deduction have us 12 points clear at the top of the league before a ball has been kicked? #EIEIEIO #WEREONOURWAY #HMSPTL4 #COWTAS #BSBA #UTMFO

    Seems he’s quite rated by the City staff, and central defence isn’t one of their strongest areas Supposedly a classy ball playing central defender Right sided I believe 

     

    I was led to believe we were interested in taking his former City youth team centre back partner Ed Francis on loan last close season, classy ball playing central defender, left sided. He moved on a permanent to Wolves in Jan '19 and whereas we were looking to do our business early in the window, NES wanted to take a look at him during preseason before making a decision on whether to loan him out or keep him around at Wolves to get some first team exposure. In the end he went on loan to Grasshopper Zurich in Feb, and we all know what happened soon after that! 

     

    Pretty sure it was Bruce that was interested last year and not Monk so doubt it's one we'd be looking to revisit this time around. *can't have been Monk because he came in when season was well under way.

  4. Hundreds and thousands of kits were probably produced with the sponsor on ... and WAWAW inside the collar. These all had to go in the bin and the best we could do at short notice was knock up another batch without the sponsor on to have them in store in time for Tramlines. AKA an opportunity to acquire special no sponsor limited edition for a limited period.  

     

    Sponsor On kit will actually be the same shirt, but with a complimentary D Taxi's sash. 

  5. 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.

    Just down the hill from there. Near the Croft retail park. 3 stags is nice. My mate has just moved up that way too and ideally we'll be up the hill in the next few years!

     

    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.

    You're think of Aston-under-lyme mate. Near Keele, and Stoke, the crap Ashton is about 15 minutes from me, and no one wants to live there, or go there, like, ever lol

     

    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. 

  8. 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.
