  1. just something a bit different, I've been reading about the Sheffield gang wars in the 1920's In the book by J.P. Bean there is a copy of a letter written by Lawrence Fowler two days before he was hanged, one of two brothers executed for the murder of William Plommer during the Sheffield gang wars in 1925 Just a little aside, see the last line bottom left, he has clearly written "Play up Wednesday" at the end of the letter, he couldn't have been all that bad
  2. Was on the away end at Olham that day, went on a coach from the Southey Club, it was kicking off before the Curran sending off, quite a mob of Wednesday fans on the Oldham end you could see the agro from the away end
  3. I doubt it, unfortunately he isn't good enough if we have any ambition at all to have a tilt at promotion And as previously noted on here he's the managers choice, a tad worrying
  4. Your absolutely right, I watched him when he came on today and to say he is inafective is unfair to inafective footballers, he is much worse than that, and bringing him on just lessens any faith that JL is the answer to our dilemma
  5. I like this 3 centre backs system but as most have identified we need effective recruitment in both wing back positions. Unfortunately what we currently have isn't of sufficient quality if we are to become serious promotion contenders
  6. first job should be send Butterfield back to Derby and get Winnall back at S6
  7. Leeds played Wednesday night and have just won 0 - 2 away
  8. I've stopped listening to Carlos and his musings on our 'preparedness' etc, all predictable stuff (mind you the £20 note tantrum was a tad off the cuff) The players interviews are also all the same old, same old, I could write it for them I now, tend only to take notice of the performance and the result, neither the hype nor the excuses I was at Villa last game and to be fair I thought it was the best we've played all season, very encouraging But at 3 O'clock tomorrow we're into it again, here's hoping we start on the front foot with tempo, you k
  9. Best performance of the season without doubt
  10. employing a new manager is always a risky business however Paul Heckingbottom has done an impressive job at Barnsley, likes to play the right way
  11. I remember we lost one nil i think, it was one of the last games of the 79/80 season
  12. Yep was on the kop, I was 20 at the time didn't expect the result, we never looked back after that game and went on to get promoted some good away days that season, Blackburn, Oxford, Bury, Exeter Terry Currans goal away at United, etc
  13. looks like a good un I always think you look a better team when you have a competent centre half who also looks composed on the ball
  14. I've done all that and I'm still not over the playoffs
