  1. Variety – The Stripes of Life!

    #3 for me.
  2. Just want Carlos back

    We are the only team who kept him for longer than one season; I somewhat wonder if that's because of our naive chairman.
  3. Paddy Miquel Nelom

    Linked to Man Utd and Barcelona this transfer window, might be a little out of our grasp.
  4. Season ticket refund OFFICIAL OFFER

    I must say that I am on the side of DC here regarding the unprecedented offer of a refund; if the reason you want a refund is because we are near a relegation fight then too right you should lose your privileges to discounted tickets in the future. The only own goal that has been made by DC in my eyes is no differentiation between fans who have a honest reason (lost job etc) or those who were just throwing their toys out of the pram because of a bad season.
  5. Stars In Stripes.... Pt 2

    Could you imagen the sh*tstorm on here if we had a red away kit now!
  6. Jordan Rhodes to Sunderland or Wolves

    I love this thread!
  7. Steven Fletcher

    Don't know how to feel about this link... Could he do a job? http://www.examiner.co.uk/sport/football/news/championship-transfer-news-rumours-sheffield-11467987
  8. Carvalhal - YES or NO

    Looks like it's a yes from Melo! https://twitter.com/melosilva33 Filipe Melo Silva ‏@melosilva33 8m8 minutes ago You are a great man and coach. I hope very much we can work together. #swfc
  9. Song for Nuhiu

    Easy plagiarise: Atdhe Nuhiu, he's bigger than me and you, he'll score a goal or two, Atdhe Nuhiu,Nuhiu!
  10. I trust Milan to get it right

    I guess officially Paul takes the managers shortlist of targets and negotiates from there. I don’t know if any of the players we have purchased Jones didn’t suggest as a option.
  11. I trust Milan to get it right

    I think the point raised about short term (1 season) contracts is very interesting. Only issue with this is that the club structure needs to support it. The club needs a director of football whom controls the clubs vision, in charge of player recruitment and development. Then employee a Guardiola type manager/coach on a season by season assessment. May mean you have manger stability for many years or if goals not achieved the club isn’t left with paying off the rest of the contract.
  12. Your Realistic Choices

    Would love to watch us string 3 passes together without lumping it forward.
  13. Great interview with Benito Carbone, remember going to his first game as a lad, hope one day I can watch this calibre or player at hillsbough again. Carbone has happier memories of Sheffield Wednesday and Villa, even if it took a fall-out with current England coach Roy Hodgson to trigger his move to England. ‘When Hodgson took over at Inter Milan, he decided I should play wide on the right, instead of my true position as second striker,’ he said. ‘I wasn’t happy, but he said I could continue there or leave, because he would go out and sign Youri Djorkaeff to replace me. That was the choice, so I left. ‘Wednesday was fantastic. So much so, I stayed three years. I played for 17 clubs, and the last one, Pavia, was the only other where I stayed that long. ‘I sometimes look at pictures with my headband on and hair flying in the wind, and it brings back all the memories. It was magical playing alongside Paolo Di Canio. We were mates, and our families spent a lot of time together in Sheffield, but it was on the pitch where we really clicked. ‘We spoke the same language. Not just Italian, but in football terms. ‘We were on the same wavelength, and it was one of the best spells of my career.’ The only regret was the way it finished. ‘There were problems in the dressing room in my final season. It became two Italians on one side, and the English players on the other. It was partly my fault. I should have tried harder to mix with the others. ‘The problem was they would invite me for a pint, but I didn’t drink. I have always been teetotal, so I never joined them. That’s where I went wrong. I was only 24. I’m 40 now, older and wiser, and if I could rewind, I would go with them, order a coke and laugh at any stick about being a lightweight. ‘That way, we would have got on. It’s the English mentality to go for a pint, and I should have realised. ‘I never had any problem with the managers. Ron Atkinson was my favourite. He just wanted me and Paolo to go out and play. We loved that. Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2258624/Benito-Carbone-interview-Former-Bradford-Aston-Villa-striker-looks-eventful-career-England.html#ixzz2HNyAu3UY
