    Post World Cup

    OK - that's some opinions. Mmm Beat giants of international football Tunisia and Panama Deliberately threw next match to get into easy side of the draw Beat Colombia (Colombia are the current central american team who are slightly better than the other ones except for Mexico! Even then, England player heads went down in adverse moments) Beat Sweden - ooh! a good result, at last (kind of second class opposition at best, though, let's be fair) Forgot that the other team is allowed to score v Croatia (no disrespect to them but "there's a titan of world football if ever there was one!" doesn't really ring true, does it) and overall were well beaten by a tiny, impoverished nation with very few resources to draw on Spanked by Belgium when they put their real team out Never mind. You know what Danny Blanchflower said: "The game is about glory. It's about doing things in style, with a flourish, about going out and beating the other lot, not waiting for them to die of boredom." OK, Southgate, which one of those did your team actually do (apart from "going out")?
  2. Well, it seems no-one's bothered to post this obvious joke so here goes...... Q: What's the difference between Lassie and football? A: Lassie came home! Please don't repeat this joke before 10pm tonight or Jim Davidson will want his £2.50 back
  3. Well having Croatia in the sweep and no Wednesday players in England's squad...........

    Fantastic sign off, Snoots - just make sure you are back to continue with this in August and beyond. Uncharacteristically, I am full of childish hope for next season and just would like to add two memories of Glenn and Ross: Glenn's great Boxing Day goal v Newcastle at St James's Park when we did the double over them when they went up and.... Ross's great opener in our 3 v 0 thrashing of Arseole in The League Cup 2015. Great stuff, Snoots. Don't die before we are back in the top division!!!!!!

    Missed this totally through bloody work!!! Sheeeeeeite. Oh, well, for next season (I remember being told in 1984 - watch out for Everton for the League Championship - nobody has noticed what a brilliant run in they have had) my spare (and unspare) dosh is on Wednesday to blast it. Bit late (or a few months early) but: Chaaaaaaaaaaaaaarge!!
  6. Really good result. I remember us being in party mood at the end of a promotion season and not giving the fans the celebratory goal feast they would have loved but, nevertheless, it shows good organisation and discipline today. Professional performance and a good test that bodes well for 18/19 season. Well done, Wednesday!

    Guess the year for this one..

    'I've seen that picture before, too. Many years ago in one of those "Looking back at Wednesday history" things that Morning Telegraph used to sometimes produce when we had done something worthy of celebration - but my memory was that it was identified as some time earlier than that - surprisingly close to the start of 20th century. Your account sounds pretty confident, though, which mine is not! Love the way the centre half is chalking his boots on the penalty spot. Discipline, my boys! Discipline! Quite an assortment of hats on the South Stand terrace (I've seen some classic thirties pictures of Hillsborough where everybody seems to have a flat cap on - but that was the kop, I think) and it certainly looks like a spring match judging by the shadows - unless it's very early in the season. Linesman looks like a miserable bsatard, doesn't he?!
  8. Only a drunk would call him a bad manager - but that doesn't mean I have to like him!
  9. I'm equipped to go on "The Chase", now - Oh yeah!
  10. Genuinely surprising you don't think of the midlands as having high places but that's just my stupidity!
  11. West Brom could be down today. Heh heh! Hawthorns historically a very lucky ground for us (seriously).
  12. But my book "Sheeite Facts About Top Football Grounds" says Molineux is oriented NNE - SSW!
  13. Chaaaaaaaaaaaaarge!
  14. We are mentally and physically very strong going into this game. I think we should welcome the opportunity to test ourselves against what is now in all but name a premiership side so. We can find out a lot from this one, if Wolves are not in too much of a party mood - although it might not be what we want to hear!
