  1. Winnall should've done better from a Rhodes knock down about 25 yards out, but by no means an easy chance. Again Winnall had another chance when Reach slid him in, although the pass was slightly over hit and caused Winnall to have to stretch for it. Wallace had a great chance to just side foot it in to the corner but went for power. Three good chances (in addition to the disallowed goal) first half to get our nose in front and we simply didn't do enough with them. They took their chance first half and we found ourselves a goal down against the run of play
  2. Daz / Kivo give me a shout with dates and I can probably get a side out so long as it's on a weekend. If it's midweek again it might be more of a struggle though.
  3. Jim - I'll have it please. In NYC at the moment but could meet you next week if you don't mind holding it?
  4. Are you happy to work away or are you looking for something closer to home? Ever considered debt collection..?
  5. In all honesty, at the prices quoted, it's probably both. First and foremost the businesses need to be making very healthy profits to spend £40k on an exec box. When you look at the demographic of the box holders currently, it's small(ish) independent local businesses that have SWFC fans as owners. It's already been alluded to, but I'd be amazed if many box holders actually use it for entertaining clients, as there's very little appetite for it. There's a number of boxes where they're made up of individuals buying a seat each, but again at circa £4k per seat, it's a very expensive hobby. Y
  6. It's been a real struggle to justify the cost for the past 7 or so seasons that we've had one. With that kind of increase it'd just be impossible, especially when realistically, you're paying that to take your mates for a knees up. The little touches have massively let it down from a commercial/advertising perspective - I've said for years that it's quite frankly scandalous how little exposure/publicity the box holders get to the wider fanbase, considering how much they spend. Most fans can't name you more than a couple of box holders, so there's barely any brand awareness or commercial bene
  7. You'll all be massively disappointed. I'd be amazed if anyone has even heard of them..
  8. It's not the one you're thinking of, Saxondale. But he does have the same name. Another defensive midfielder I'm afraid.
  9. I have to say, the main reason this will either be a success or failure will be down to the waitress service. It's absolutely nothing against the staff, who given their age, lack of experience and pay do a great job. However, often the service (given the price) is embarrassing and will be further highlighted when you're sat in your box waiting for someone to take your drinks order or to serve your food.
  10. Wednesday have (finally, thanks to the new COO) realised that the law only prevents you from consuming alcohol whilst in view of the pitch. Therefore, the blinds that are fixed to the window of each box are now drawn 15 minutes prior to kick off to allow box holders to continue to drink throughout the game. You still can't drink and watch the game, but I'd say that's an advantage these days..!
  11. Let me know if anyone is interested. http://www.jobsite.co.uk/job/systems-analyst-952170445
  12. Yep no worries, see you all tomorrow at 2.30. I'm a right back and Tom is a striker, played up top last year for the blue & whites (before getting injured)
