  1. Sad news. RIP Neil. Condolences to the family.
  2. Really sorry that Sam is leaving. Will have to reserve judgement until next season, as to whether or not this was a wise decision. Would like to take this opportunity to thank him for everything he has done for our beloved club. Good luck Sam.........
  3. Will be watching, as I am a glutton for punishment! Can't see it being pretty. They will need a very strong referee to deal with all the shithousery from both teams. Couldn't care less who wins....
  4. Exactly this, disgraceful! A lot of our troubles were synonymous with his type. All take and no give in the end. He wasn't the only one either...
  5. Yes, exactly Fletcher is just another old mercenary footballer. We don't need his type, fleecing our beloved club anymore.
  6. Very sad news Best wishes to Mick Lyons and his family, at this difficult time. He was a great player and by all accounts is a great man......
  7. No, me neither. I won't be able to ever watch either of the semi-final games again. Or, come to that, the end of season game last year against D*rby C*unty that sealed our relegation from the Championship. Hurts too much.......
  8. Jack Clarke is on loan from Spurs, but Patrick Roberts is actually on a six month contract with Sunderland. My bad! However, I have to that I was very impressed with their performances over the two legs. Pace, power and skill in abundance. I remember Roberts excelling at Fulham, but he seemed to go off the radar a little bit after that. It will be interesting to see how Wycombe deal with them both in the final, if I can bring myself to watch it..... Won't be pretty, IMO.
  9. Good post! I have to say I thoroughly agree with your comments. On the evidence of the two legs, Sunderland deserved to go through & fair play to them. I thought that they had better loan players than us, in Clarke and Roberts. We never really dealt with either of them, throughout. We looked very tired and "leggy" tonight & in the end, I think over the course of a long season, endless injuries cost us dear. Absolutely gutted, as we all are & I do agree with your post in that it was very harsh on Bazza, who has given absolutely everything to our cause, all season. But I will ALWAYS love this club, even though it's hard right now....... When the dust has settled, we will regroup and rebuild & go for the automatic places next season. UTO!
  10. Corbeanu has started for MK Franchise. Ground tonight is half empty. Or is it half full? Whoever wins tonight, we have a very difficult game tomorrow night to contend with first. IF we go up, we will have thoroughly DESERVED it! UTO........
  11. Yes, sorry a bit the worse for wear! JOSH Windass
  12. We were poor tonight, for 70 minutes, IMO. It could easily have been a lot worse. We definitely rode our luck on a few occasions. But a first leg play-off semi final away from home, in front of over 40,000 partisan Sunderland supporters, is a daunting situation for any team, not least a team that has only recently been able to call on the services of important players returning from long term injuries, for example Harlee Dean & Josh Windass. Despite some of the derision expressed on here tonight, I would definitely have taken a 1-0 deficit prior to tonights' game. Especially as Hillsborough will be rocking on Monday night, with 30,000 plus Owls fans vociferously backing our team. We definitely have the players & the experience within the team to turn this semi-final around. Personally, I wouldn't have thought that we could play as poorly again as we did for most of tonights game, even though, to their credit, Sunderland thoroughly deserved their victory. I really feel for Sam Hutchinson tonight & hope that he doesn't become a scapegoat for our loss, as he has been a rock all season. BB was definitely under par too. But come Monday night, the Sky cameras will return to see the REAL Sheffield Wednesday! Jack Hunt & Dean Windass to start, for me anyway, with Nathaniel Mendez Laing waiting in the wings..... Come on Wednesday. Let's fu*king do this! UTO.
