    #OnThisDay 40 years Ago

    Makes me feel old this but what a memory being there as a 6 year old. First time I saw Wednesday score live through Jeff Johnson. Only went to the Hillsborough game as my old man didn’t go away much then but I remember how v close we went in the first replay. I remember getting football annuals bought me for Christmas and my old man pointing out pictures of Liam Brady and saying how good he was and how he’d soon be playing against Wednesday. He was right but even then I didn’t want to hear about any player that was going to play well against us! Funny how you recall things. Happy days and an epic cup tie that sadly the likes of are long gone.

    Mel Sterland, underrated?

    Some great comments about Mel on here. In just over 40 years watching Wednesday he'd get in my best 11. Roly would too (obviously) but Mel's the type of player you just can't leave out. Gutted when he left but the story goes Big Ron tried to keep him but Mel had already given Walter Smith at Rangers his word. When that actually meant something. Mind you Big Ron spent the Mel money OK. Bought some young gangly midfielder called Carlton! I digress. Mel was the epitome of what us fans want to see in a player. I absolutely loved him. What I'd give for a team full now with half his attitude. Under rated? Not by Wednesday fans and I dare say the other clubs he played for. ZICO! ZICO! ZICO! ZICO!

    Very sad news. Remember especially in the late 80's and 90's at the Gate and away games. RIP Weeny

    I sincerely hope Fessi is fit and starts. No brainer for me. Changes the whole dynamic for both sides. It aso means Jos has to go 4-3-3.....surely? Palmer and Pennsy play better in a four and Lees and Hector pick themselves. We have to match their 3 in midfield with Hutch (it will be Pelupessy though) Bannan and Reach. Fletcher focal point up top with Fess and Joao playing slightly behind left and right respectively and dropping into midfield when they have the ball. Pigs weakness is that the wing backs bomb on to make pressing game work and this can leave gaps at the sides. Fessi and Joao playing in front 3 perfect to exploit that. Matias gives us a dimension from the bench. UTMO! FTP!

    Football Heaven 2018 - 2019

    I understand the guy on the right is the angry, bitter, deluded pig Michael.
  6. Perhaps but you're talking all the coaching and playing staff getting the best fitness advice/specific plans going and being monitored for the foreseeable.
  7. One thing I do know is that the players will be as fit as they possibly can be and much much fitter than last season and quite possibly the fittest in the league. Just after the season finished the club spent £1 million to go to St George's Park for every coach, player and I believe Jos himself to have individual training programs over the summer. Apparently they are due to return just before the official pre-season starts for their results and to see if they have met the required targets. Any player not meeting certain levels won't be allowed to start pre-season until they do. It's quite brutal (in a good to get fit way) by all accounts. Clare, Pudil, Joao to name a few have been posting on social media too. Jos did a similar thing when he was at Stuttgart.

    Although someone else did score a hat trick! :-)

    James Maddison of Norwich City

    Thanks for clearing that up. I’m sure no one else on here thought of that. Meanwhile Maddison won’t score a first half hat trick on Sunday!

    James Maddison of Norwich City

    So what’s your point? Do you conclude Maddison will score a first half hat-trick as the OP eludes to? I’m quite certain he won’t.

    James Maddison of Norwich City

    After 41 games this season scoring 14 goals at a rate of 1 goal every 2.9 games I bet he doesn't score 3 in half a game against us.

    #OnThisDay in 1980

    I was there as an 8 year old shouting come back Terry and carry on playing!
  14. It's been said on other posts but Wallace has been a very good signing and well be fondly remembered. However, it's the right time for Wallace to leave and he goes with our best wishes
  15. Reach for me just in front of Atdhe.
