  1. I stopped reading at “probably the best keeper in our clubs history”. I’ll replace the word “probably” with “definitely not”. I think Westwood is great on and off the pitch but it’s perfectly reasonable to question him at the moment and just as reasonable to have a debate about dropping him for Dawson.
  2. This season in Championship: Westwood: 13 conceded in 1160 minutes = 1 goal per 89 minutes W 5 D 3 L 5 Dawson: 1 conceded (offside goal v Cardiff) in 280 minutes = 1 goal per 280 minutes W 2 D 1 L 0 Make of that what you will
  3. Thanks for pointing out that Palmer or Fox wouldn’t get in the either of the two sides that would pretty much make up the majority of a best 11 in the last half a century. I’ll go a stage further and say none of the current squad would get in those sides. Not really a parameter to measure the current squad by I would suggest.
  4. This is taking talking total nads about Wednesday to another level by the yellow toothed tool. Total detraction for the best pass and chance of the game and the third time this Barca-esque pig side has failed to beat us when we have been injury ravaged and/or in transition. I shouldn't be surprised but the pigs just fall for it. Incredible.
  5. Megson unquestionably did a great job for us. He took over a side under Irvine that was looking more likely to leave Lge One to Lge Two rather than to the Champ. He left a side ready for promotion. Jones took over and saw it through but left a side going back down to Lge One before Milan acted and gave Gray the job to steady us. If you look back at the 2012 promotion season the catalyst for the great run was clearly Antonio and early in the season Ben Marshall. The window between Marshall leaving and Antonio arriving was the bad run which was unfortunate for Megson.
  6. Is there a more one side rivalry in English football? Rotherham fan I work also talked about their players/a player becoming a legend by scoring a winner against us. Seems to have emanated to Warne too. Cute.
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. Very sad news. Remember especially in the late 80's and 90's at the Gate and away games. RIP Weeny
  10. 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!
  11. I understand the guy on the right is the angry, bitter, deluded pig Michael.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Don't be modest...erm... Alan you've also been to his house and drinking on Division Street with him.....with me too! :-) I was at Sunday night session and Monday afternoon session. I'd had a few gratis Peroni's in VIP lounge so when I got home I thought I was seeing things when I saw DC! Wednesday chairman and Wednesdayite ref in charge Final.........WAWAW!
  15. Although someone else did score a hat trick! :-)
