  1. And this is my point. People have wrote him off as the result of that bad game. It's been 18 months since then.
  2. Would love him to get an actual run in the side instead of everyone writing him off after a couple of games. Our fans must be up there with the worst for giving players a chance. Didn't fans used to slate Sheridan?
  3. I'm fine with this. Try and move on Rhodes and Westwood because of their wages and offer a deal to Fletcher on reduces wages then try and build with a much younger side. There are so many good players in league 1 and league 2 who we could try and sign and would have a resale value as well. Players like Scott Fraser at Burton, who has 5 goals and 11 assists this season, is 25 and out of contract. Surely worth taking a chance on a few like this
  4. https://footballleagueworld.co.uk/quiz-can-you-remember-which-sheffield-wednesday-manager-signed-each-of-these-15-players/ Decent little quiz if you are bored. Can you name the manager who signed each player. I got 12.
  5. This isn't right though is it? When you say 21st you mean first in the championship so the average is completely different. Also, the 12 years before Ashley were before the mega rich owners came in. Newcastle were one of the big fish then.
  6. Sums up our fans. Best start we've had to a season in years and people still moan about the squad and want half the players moved on.
  7. Hope it's not so people have to actually go to watch the game. Our away following at Leeds in recent years has been awful
  8. Don't really get the big hissy fit over the subs. We were 3 nil up in what essentially is a nothing game and Bruce obviously wanted to try a few things and also make sure players are as fresh as possible for the next 2 games. Absolutely fine isn't it
  9. And how long did it take Wallace to find a club? Had to drop down leagues as well. Doesn't just work like that
  10. We could easily have a starting 11 of Dawson, Palmer, Lees, Pudil, Van Aken, Reach, Bannan,Hutch,Fessi, Joao, Nuhiu and a bench of Fox, Wildsmith, Fletcher, Matais, Boyd, Joey P and Jones with Hooper and Lee back in a few weeks. Hardly a team full of youngsters. I think people forget how big a squad we actually have. The youngsters coming through and getting game time is a bonus.
  11. I see were you are coming from with it. Not exactly been a great pre-season but we did well at the end of last season and Jos now has Westwood, Hutchinson, Fletcher and Van Aken to add to that team as wll as hopefully having Lee and Hooper back soon. I think this gives us a pretty decent side. I think it will do us good to have no real pressure on as well. No one else thinks we will do anything this season..
  12. Surely your memory goes back more than 3 years? We've had a garbage championship team for years apart from about 3. The team we have now might not be top 2 material but can more than hold it's on in this league. Think you are also forgetting we have players like Fessi and Bannan who are miles better than we've had for years. Hardly all doom and gloom.
  13. You do know we are allowed to sign another right back?
  14. Did anyone else last night look at the team sheet with more optimism than most weeks? Seeing a side without Fox, Palmer, Wallace, Butters and Nuhiu in it and replaced with a bit more pace and attack minded players was a nice surprise. Not sure why it has taken so long for Boyd and Clare to be given a game but both were good as was Hunt. Although both Palmer and Nuhiu did well when they came on I thought the team that started can actually compete in this league. Hopefully Lees is back for the villa game to add to it and it suddenly doesn't look so bad after all.
  15. Since coming into the side against Forest he has been our best player Imo along side Reach. Even against Burton were we we awful he looked a threat. What impresses me the most is his hold up play. I always thought he was a bit of a weakling but he Is very good at getting his body inbetween the ball and defender. Yes he is unpredictable and gives the ball a way at times but he's always a threat and has something special in his locker. Building for next season I would love to have him Fessi, Hooper and Winnall as our strikers options and move the rest on.
