  1. I’m glad the Blades have gone up. They don’t stand a chance next season. It’s going to be quality watching them go into meltdown and Wilder will be gone before the end of the season.
  2. I’ve attended 8 away games and 3 home games this season. That say’s a lot regarding the ticket prices... I’m sure I’m not the only one.
  3. Jesus wept. Some right wet tissues on here. Approximately 5k away fans attending a fixture of very little significance? The majority of clubs in British football would love that level of support.
  4. We have a very weak left flank when Iorfa and Aarons aren’t playing. Boyd played okay and so did Fox but that’s it. Both are weak, slow and have the reaction times of a sloth. Arrons is a totally different beast. Even when he’s not on the ball, his contribution is useful. And, he draws players away from play because he needs marking.
  5. I know. I was presuming you meant that, once Hooper is back to full fitness, he will be playing his usual position. I don’t know why this can’t be the case with FF.
  6. How can you be sure about Hooper? Winnall and FF are both younger than Hooper and Hooper has been out for 15 months. I’m sure FF, at 29, has still got a lot left in his tank. When he starts performing again there’ll be some eggy faces on here.
  7. FF is coming back from time out on the sidelines! Give him chance! Reach was the worst player in the side yesterday, not FF. Reach gave several sloppy passes away and didn’t offer any attacking threat down the wing either, much like the game against Blackburn.
  8. I think we’ll struggle today. I’d be very happy with a draw. I have a feeling we’ll be waking up with a reality check tomorrow morning!
  9. At Derby we looked a solid unit, but didn’t offer an awful lot up front. A draw was a fair result. Derby had some very good chances. Against Bolton, we were frankly awful in the first half. Against better opposition, we would have been lucky to have not conceded in the first half. Against Blackburn, we looked very shakey at times. We took our chances and that was the difference between the sides. Blackburn played much the better football and frequently exploited our left flank. If they hadn’t have had a make shift defence or a donkey of a goalkeeper, we wouldn’t have scored four goals.
  10. If you read my other post you’ll understand what I mean. Yes Leeds and Norwich are extremely tough games. But they’re desperate to affirm automatic promotion so the pressure is definitely on them. They must win. They will be playing open, expansive football. And, they both concede goals. Stoke have no pressure. They concede very few goals and, against good defences, we aren’t overly prolific on the goal front. Anyone can beat anyone in this league so league position is irrelevant. I really do think the Stoke game is a real banana skin.
  11. Their recent form is solid. Very tough place to go. The fact is, anybody in this league can beat anybody so league position doesn’t really come into it - if that’s you’re point? The majority of our other fixtures are against sides going for promotion. These teams are under pressure to win. They will be playing open, expansive football potentially leaving a route for us to score. It will be totally different against Stoke. Don't be too confident!
  12. He does understand. But he’s finding pleasure in being awkward.
  13. I’d be extremely happy with a draw against Stoke. I actually think this is our toughest remaining game. We’ve done extremely well of late, but had a good amount of luck. I feel this could be the game our run ends. I hope I’m wrong.
  14. If the tickets had been a tenner cheaper, the attendance would have been closer towards 28k yesterday. Its an an absolute rip off. Adult tickets in the North Stand were £36 yeaterday. Yes, to watch us play Blackburn!!! Absolutely ridiculous. It’s a shame because the prices are making other fans underestimate our support.
  15. Atdhe ‘The Wardrobe’ Nuhiu actually played okay for once!
  16. Fair do’s because I wasn’t there. Not a lot of atmospher came through on the box though. Sounded nervy.
  17. Unfortunately the whole crowd sounded quiet on the tv. I think our ticket prices are keeping the ‘passionate’ fan away.
  18. It we play Man City tonight and our cheapest ticket is £34, I can tell you, we wouldn’t sell out
  19. I do understand your point and I see that, for some games, lowering the price may not affect the attendance significantly. But I do think that for the vast majority of games, having more reasonable prices will lead to higher attendances. To contextualise it, I class my self as a big Wednesday fan. I had a season ticket for seven years and barely missed a game. We also travel 60 miles to the stadium. However this season I’ve been to Hillsborough twice. Both games were discounted prices. And I’m sure this applies to others
  20. I certainly would! All ‘£20 games’ this season have seen the home section of the attendance being higher than average.
  21. So why didn’t the ground sell out when we played Man City back in the Dave Allen days? It was a Tuesday night and there were 28k in attendance including 6k Man City fans. Re the Brentford game, I take your point. However, if normal ticket prices were in place, I’m sure the attendance would have been below 20k.
  22. I disagree. I actually think that if we were to play Man City, Chelsea or Arsenal tomorrow, and employ the same ticket price policy as for the Blades game, the stadium wouldn’t sell out. It’s all about ticket prices. Make them reasonable and people will turnout, me included.
  23. I understand the reason why the ticket prices are so high. However, I simply cannot justify spending £92 on two tickets plus travel. It's just madness. Our crowds should be up there with the best in the League.
  24. His performances are just empty. Seems to run around a lot but that’s it. He’s had absolutely no influence in any game I’ve seen him play.
