  1. Comments about the Bleats shouldn’t feature in any decision about a ST - They and Wolves have shown what is possible in a short space of time a. Spend a shitload of money BUT spend it wisely on skilful players that build a team or b. Find a fantastic manager who can turn L1 players into Premier League. They have both left us trailing massively and the current PL finances make any comparison to previous times completely irrelevant. we are literally not in their league at present. The Prince has seen his ‘£10 mill investment’ in the Bleats rise tenfold with promotion. That said I’m only interested in Wednesday and yes it’s pretty poo at the moment but if you can’t be optimistic watching football then why would you go. We’ve won one cup since 1935 why should there be any realistic expectation of changing that. I’ve renewed by the way.
  2. Anybody except the Blunts - we are far too fragile to play them.
  3. An easy win would be to push away fans down to the front of the Lepps away from the amplifier that is the West stand roof - Much harder to address the appalling atmosphere (for the size and alleged fervour of our massive fan base) in the rest of the ground. It is unfortunately a library and it’s not solely attributable to what’s happening on the pitch. Look at Palace they have solid backing EVERY game.
  4. The support at home games this season is an embarrassing contrast to the excellent away support. Currently home games are like the old Division 3 atmosphere in the late 70’s when there were only 10k in the ground.
  5. Atmosphere The away support supplied all the noise from the very beginning in comparison to the rather subdued home fans. Quote from a London paper on the atmosphere last night at (it’s still Loftus Rd to me). Its funny because this could easily apply to nearly every single one of our HOME games (even Hull sang it at us!). As usual our away support was incredibly loud at QPR and it does make you wonder what if any part our fans could actually have in helping the team at home if the away support was replicated at Hillsborough. It must have an effect on some players and teams.
  6. Is this a library chants at every single home game now (even from Hull fans!). Needs some club engineering re seating allocations. 1. Move the ‘tough guys’ away from the end of the North (are they still there haven’t heard them for ages?). 2. Move away fans down to bottom tier. Hillsborough always looks so empty on TV and it will take away their magnificent view from on high and reduce the amplification effect up at the back of the stand. 3. Have a good run at the playoffs.
  7. It’s not really a difficult decision is it - Dawson is improving but he has to work on controlling and communicating with the defenders in front of him. This is one of Westwood’s strongest attributes. Luongo gives us something we’ve been missing for years a box to box midfielder with a bit of bite and skill in equal measure. We will have to be very patient because we will not have a lot of the ball but if we continue to create chances and stay in the game it’s definitely winnable.
  8. OP is well off the mark here - Played well tonight and edged Odubajo for MOM. He’s young he’s fast he’s physical - yes he has to improve on positional play but he’s just done very well against both Fulham and Everton forwards who are premiership quality. He deserves to keep his place in the team.
  9. Given the choices he was my favourite - He’s a manager who likes his teams to play football and our squad is geared to that. Pulis would have been the complete opposite (terrible negative football). The Cowleys have been impressive but only at lower level football and you only have to look at Jones at Stoke to see how previous success is no guarantee. Monk knows the championship and has managed in the Prem. Give him time he feels like a good fit
  10. Why do they feel the need to close ALL lanes of Penistone Road? Because there are now extra fans leaving the ground by that route. Why are extra fans leaving by that route? Because SAG in their ivory tower have decreed that Leppings Lane is off limits due to imagined conflicts between home and away support (even when there a just a few away supporters). Where is the hard evidence to support these imagined conflicts? Where are the official stats showing arrests/assaults in that specific area? Why is there no proportionality shown to cater for different risk games? This is a domino effect solely fuelled by SAG. No other ground in the country has such draconian and punitive measures in place. This is F++kwittery of the very highest order. SAG you and only you have created these problems. Let’s hope at some stage in the future you are held to account as the group of incompetent individuals you undoubtedly are. Shame on you.
  11. Whilst I completely disagree with any of the ill thought out SAG/SYP rubbish there were a couple of interesting by products from their actions. 1. No queues or scrums for the toilets on the upper north. Important for those of us of an advancing age! 2. Were those chants and songs I herd from the Kop? What a pleasure to have some life back in the old East Bank rather than relying on the kindergarten of the BBC wannabes at the end of the North. Time for a singing/away(home) section to see if the fans can actually help at home? it seems a plastic idea but seems to work elsewhere.
  12. Waste of time just writing to SYP they could simply ignore your effort. However Call it a complaint and they have to both record it and satisfactorily answer it. It’s easiest by email complaints_and_discipline@southyorks.pnn.police.uk
  13. If you are genuinely peeved with the changes enforced on fans regarding access and egress from the North and South stands then get off your a+++e and do something. SYP are duty bound to receive and log EVERY complaint against police direction and control. They are equally dirty bound to reply to every one. Without statistics showing the significant strength of fans worries and concerns about their safety with the new measures they can simply fall back on their ‘independent’ assessment. You can complain by email to complaints_and_discipline@southyorks.pnn.police.uk
  14. First Wednesday hero for me - god I feel old - pity he played in such desperate times, the seventies apart from the last week of the decade were not an enjoyable time to be an Owl - cue Hovis music ‘youngsters today don’t know how lucky they are’
  15. I’ve been critical of Joey and definitely Fox but credit where it’s due they both played well last night especially Joey BUT one game doesn’t go anywhere near to papering over the serious gaps in their skill sets (lack of pace, terrible positional sense and attacking instincts for both). So well done to both but I would not expect them to be in the squad next year.
