  1. Imagine if the 92/93 season took place now with modern day match ticket prices? 42 league games 8 FA Cup Games 9 League Cup Games 4 European Games Not to mention that those games included 4 games at Wembley and 2 games abroad and also not including Travel and Pints. Sheffield Wednesday fans would literally go bankrupt. UTO!!!
  2. Anyone know if there will be a link/stream available for Saturday's game with it being a Yorkshire Derby??? UTO!!!
  3. On 24th August last year I left the U.K. to start a new life in Asia, my last game was the 1-1 draw at home to QPR scored by Sam Winnall. Before I left the U.K. I said that I hoped "Sheffield Wednesday would be a premier league team by the time I return" on that note it looks like I need to start applying for a very very long visa. I cannot believe what has happened this season, considering that this time last season we were battling every game for a place in the play-offs and going home disappointed if we hadn't beaten a top team, my friends who are season ticket holders have all said the same thing this season, no heart, no spunk and even at times no fitness. 3pm kick offs are at 11pm here and 7:45pm kick offs are 3:45am here, quite often I will stay up to keep an eye on the score and quite often I will regret doing so and wish that I had just got some sleep. Personally I think we are in BIG trouble now, we have just had 2 home games against very average teams, the perfect opportunity to claw ourselves away from danger and we have picked up a mere 1 point from those games, that is relegation form and I am now very concerned that yesterdays late equaliser will come back to haunt us at the end of the season. So on a personal level I seemed to have picked a very good season to spend my money travelling around Asia rather than watching that shower. To all you owls back home who have persisted with them this season good on you, I imagine it has been horrible and painful to watch week in week out and I only hope your patience will be rewarded with survival and the opportunity for the team to start fresh and for you to see some good football next season. From what I can gather we need a total clear out in the summer, too many has-beens coming to Wednesday for one last pay check, too many players who did put their heart and soul into the team the last 2 years but who are now burnt out from the 2 years of not succeeding and clearly too many players who aren't fit enough to play on a regular basis. Chansiri and Jos (providing he is still here) need to prepare themselves for a very busy summer of comings and goings no matter what division we will be in next season. Happy Mothers Day. UTO!!!
  4. Booth to Tottenham

    I remember Frank Sinclair scoring a fair few goals in one Season for Leicester. Granted they were at the wrong end but a goal's a goal
  5. Didn't get to the game last night as I am now living abroad. Saw the team sheet and noticed a few academy players in the starting 11 which is good i like it when our own youth get a run out. So I was a little surprised not to see Jack Stobbs in the squad. Would anyone who went to the game last night say that these lads have earned the chance of a start in a league match or is it still too soon? Either way the fact that they were part of the winning team will do their confidence no harm UTO!!!
  6. clubs you have a 'soft spot' for

    Spurs for me. A large number of my family support the Yid Army so always look out for them. Been to about 5-10 Spurs games in my life (2 of them against the pigs) and the atmosphere is always quality. And it's the same vice versa, all my relatives who support Spurs have been to Hillsborough a few times with me and they all say Wednesday are their second team. UTO!!!
  7. It's Over!!!

    Call it Negative thinking, Call it Lack of optimism, Call it Throwing in the towel or Call it Realistic our season is now over regardless of who is in charge. We are currently 10 points behind the play offs and by the end of today the chances are that gap will be even higher. In theory we could still achieve promotion this season, in reality I think it's too far out of our reach, not only do we have to turn our form around and win a large number of games but we need teams around and above us to do the exact opposite, too much to ask for IMO. What we should do now is scrap this season and concentrate on next season starting now, if Chansiri wants Carlos in charge next season whether we are a championship team or not then he should come out and say so, that would at least give us some closure and assurances of where the club stands, If Chansiri doesn't want Carlos in charge next season if we are a Championship club then he should sack him NOW, this will give the new manager whoever that might be the rest of the season to build a squad in preparation for 2018-19 season as well as give him the entire second half of this current season to decide which players he wants to keep and which players he doesn't as well as the January transfer window to bring in a couple of his own players and time to get them settled into the club. People might think this is a bad attitude to have but sometimes in life you need to take 1 step back to take 2 steps forward. UTO!!!
  8. The more time goes on, the less guilty I am feeling. UTO!!!
  9. Really? Is this what it has come down to, petty childish arguing. I'm not trying to start an argument I'm just saying that Atdhe Nuhiu (and every other footballer for that matter) is also a human being, people seem to forget that, and most of the abuse he receives is completely vile and therefore completely unnecessary, the majority of fans who shout and swear at him would never have the balls to say the same thing to their face, yet they're more than brave when they have thousands of fans around them. And in answer to your question Ian, yes I have, i've said it to few Wednesday fans when the abuse has got past a certain point, it didn't make much difference but it felt good to get it off the chest. UTO!!!
  10. What I have heard some of the fans shout to Nuhiu in the past 4 years has been nothing short of vile and disgraceful. He has been made such an easy scapegoat because of his size and his different style of play, and fair play to him he has just got on with it. To all the fans who have abused him in the past (and I mean abused, not constructively criticised him) Would you go and say that to his face when it would be just the 2 of you??? No I thought not, filthy cowards. UTO!!!
  11. Happy Birthday Carlton Palmer!!

    Happy Birthday Carlton. As I was born in 1990 so I didn't have the pleasure of seeing Carlton in his prime with John Sheridan in the middle, I did however see him when we had him on loan back in 2001 and to be fair I think his leadership and experience would have put to much better value with a much better team, but back then no one could boost that shower of sh!te. I had the pleasure of meeting Carlton a couple of years ago when I was working behind the bar, great guy, bought everybody that was there a drink (myself included), had some great stories to tell and was happy to pose for a picture and sign an autograph for anybody. Many people believe Carlton is a controversial character, I disagree, he is just not a PR man, Carlton Palmer says a lot of things that many people think but are too frightened to say or are too sensitive to hear. Being "Controversial" does not mean that the man is wrong. Unfortunatly we live in a society now where you have to say the so called "right" thing or in other words the "safe" thing because if you don't the majority are down on you like a ton of bricks. Somebody like Carlton who says what he thinks and doesn't give a monkeys about the response because it is what he believes is right is a breath of fresh air to the 90% fakeness of the sport. Question for you: If Carlton Palmer was playing today do you think he would get more, less or the same amount of England Caps??? UTO!!!
  12. Just been reading that the Scottish League Cup Final between Motherwell and Celtic will be dedicated to the late Phil O'Donnell as he played for them both. Weird to think that he has been gone nearly 10 years, just shows how fast time goes. No matter how bad his time at Wednesday was (and lets face it, it was, wage bill too high, time on the pitch too little) 35 is such a tragic age to die especially considering he left a wife and 4 children behind. Anyone got any memories of his time at Hillsborough on or off the pitch??? R.I.P. Phil O'Donnell, Once an Owl Always an Owl.
  13. I'll hold my hands up I was in the "Carlos In" group at the start of the season but unfortunately the results don't lie. People may say "be careful what you wish for" but I wish for us to get promoted and at the moment I just don't see it happening, we picked up 0 points against Birmingham, Bolton and at home to the pigs, games we really should have won on paper, you cannot lose against teams like that and expect to gain promotion. As said in the title this feels really strange, I never wanted Gary Megson or Stuart Gray to leave at all, I wanted Alan Irvine and Dave Jones out and I never felt bad thinking or saying that whereas I do feel that it is time for Carlos to go but I feel really guilty about it, Carlos has given us 2 of the best seasons we have had in recent years and he always comes across as an incredibly charming and likeable man but he has also shown that he can't handle big games and big occasions and if we are to replace him we need to do it now while the season is still early and the new manager has time to get a settled squad and to get a good run of results going. As for the new manager basically we need a manager who has proven experience of getting a team into the premiership so Big Sam, Lambert, Pardew or maybe even Harry Redknapp should all be in contention. For me the obvious choice is Big Sam, offer him £2 million for the season and if he get's us up then give him a £2 million bonus, if he got us up then that money would be peanuts compared to the premier league income. However that is all hypothetical at the moment, Carlos if you're going to go then thanks for the memories, if you're going to stay then please sort it out and fast. UTO!!!
  14. Looking at some of the comments on social media just shows that some Wednesdayites (not all but some) are the most fickle morons around. Guaranteed if it was Nuhiu who acted this way he'd be getting savaged left, right and centre.
  15. Interview with Andy Booth about his career, his time at Wednesday starts around the 13 minute mark if that's all you want to listen to. Always comes across as a decent bloke does Booth I seem to remember him being a very honest and very hard working player, just maybe lacked that cutting edge to be a consistent premiership striker, and I think we paid far to much for him, remember £2.7 million was a lot of money even in the premiership in 1996. What do people think or remember of Andy Booth's time at Hillsborough? Anyone got any good stories about him? UTO!!!
