  1. CV19? Colin's Virus! Get well though big nose.
  2. Post Lockdown Pigs PL 11 W 3 D 2 L 6 F 9 A 16 PTS 11 (17th placed finish over a season based on 19/20 Premier League Table) Last Four PL 4 W 0 D 0 L 4 F 1 A 8 PTS 0 Make of that what you will UTO! FTP!
  3. There have been times when Rhodes has had decent service and he hasn't shown the desire and/or hasn't had the pace, strength or quickness of thought to get there. I take absolute no pleasure in saying it and if anything it saddens me to say he seems finished at Champ level. What's happened to the Jordan Rhodes of Huddersfield I simply don't know. All this lack of service rhetoric is just an excuse that is becoming lamer and lamer. Taking a penalty from 12 yards is service enough and he can't even do that. We should take whatever we can get for him.
  4. Nail. On. The. Head. At the risk of getting stick I actually signed for the Pigs as a schoolboy/youth player. I won't bore you with the protracted reasons as to why. It doesn't make me less of a Wednesday fan in fact it makes me more of one now knowing that there is a general tangible difference between the two clubs. I trained at Wednesday too before signing for the dark side and as alanharper rightly states, we tend to ridicule and laugh at the pigs. We are almost dismissive at times which winds them up even more. I was shocked as a 15 year old once I signed for the major trophy dodgers just how the whole club (with the exception of a few coaching staff at the time) where completely consumed by everything Wednesday. Their whole ethos seemed to be about just being better than us even it meant we were both poor, as long as they were above us that’s all that mattered. Some of the vile hatred I heard directed at us was incredible. To say we are in their heads and under their skin is an understatement. Even as they are now 33 years later I've not seen or heard anything to change that view only things to vindicate it. Of course I/we are generalising as I have friends and family who are pigs and most of them are great people. However, when it specifically comes to us some of them aren’t so great. I’m sure you’ve all experienced it. Of course they will swear blind this isn't true but being inside the inner sanctum of both clubs throughout my lifetime (unlike most of them) I can tell that it is absolutely is true. OBB
  5. In your post. Have another look. Assuming you’re not a woman, maybe you are but if not I find it a bit odd and almost disturbing you call me “love”.
  6. Again, where have I wished ill fortune on Monk? It is a result based job exactly. Look at the last half season results which prompted my question. Of course there are alternatives but DC clearly isn’t going to pursue them.
  7. You didn’t it was another reply.
  8. Yes in relation to the subject and not going off on an irrelevant tangent about Fergie and Big Ron. Still care to show me where I repeatedly state this about Monk?
  9. No and no. Fk me touched a nerve with some of you!
  10. Well that’s all I or anyone can do but that record fills me with zero confidence despite circumstances, restraints, excuses, reasons...depending on what type of person you are!
  11. Repeatedly? You’ve still not answered my question.
  12. Monks last half of the season: PL 23 W 4 D 5 L 14 PTS 17 which over the 2019/2020 would result in a rock bottom finish. Is not having a full back room staff and an EFL charge pending excuses enough to entrust a man with such a record with the biggest rebuild job in years?
  13. Well look where we are 5 years on. Lower league position -12 points at the start of next season as it stands Tens of millions blown We no longer own Hillsborough I'm not talking as though Gray would have got us promotion I'm merely pointing the job he's done at Fulham albeit as assistant. Furthermore, my fears from 5 years appear to have been well founded wouldn't you say?
  14. Nearly? It's not a case of moving on just merely highlighting all the major concerns I had about DC 5 years ago that have sadly been proven right. Of course he's well meaning and has put serious money but his decision making on the football side have undermined all that and the sacking of Gray and appointment of Carlos, as nice a guy he is, are just two examples of bad decisions.
