  1. I’d take Carlos, Gray, Megson or Laws back at this point. I’d draw the line at Jos, Irvine, Jones, Yorath and Turner
  2. Agree to an extent but have you ever seen us as badly as that tonight with Westwood and Hutchinson in the team? For the remainder of this season they still should be involved
  3. Can only comment on what I see on the pitch, no idea what they’re like in training or in the dressing room. But we’re a much better team when Westwood and Hutchinson are playing
  4. You need to replace the word invested with wasted or spunked
  5. Can you explain how you’re valuing us at 100 million?
  6. A new manager could pick us a bit. Hutchinson has to play in that team if fit and throwing 3 loan players straight in to start is desperate. And wtf was that back 3 tonight with FF at wing back. But it’s not a new manager we need really, it’s a new owner
  7. Do you know what that job is? DC struggles to sell a player. How’s he going to sell a club?
  8. Yeah the average weekly wage was £6,445 in 2015 when Chansiri arrived and a lot of our players (Westwood, Palmer, Lees, Lee, Hutchinson) were already at the club
  9. The investment in the club the last 3 years has been (by championship standards) almost on a shoestring. The last players we signed for over £1 million were Jordan Rhodes and Joost van Aken, there’s been no money spent on the ground, no CEO since Meire left and Monk hasn’t even been allowed to bring his own staff in. The only real money that’s gone in has been to pay the big contracts we gave out in 2016-17
  10. Our average weekly wage was reported to be £17,476 by Maguire so there’ll be plenty at the club earning more than 20k a week
  11. Bizarre that in the sales pitch for 10 year season tickets the club talked about achieving promotion in season 2019/20 and now the manager makes comments like this
  12. Swansea was a decent game I thought (even though we threw it away at the end). But other than that agree, we’ve scored 14 goals in 16 games at Hillsborough this season
  13. Debatable whether the City game will sell out but we’ll see. Given the crowd against Everton and the form we’re in we’ll do well to sell out. You’ve missed out Hull but even with that it’s 4 games in 25 years (and 3 of those are in the same season).
  14. Do you geniunely think there’ll be anyone begging for an ID in the next few years? I hope there is but we’ve only had that situation a couple of times in the last 25 years. Unless something changes at the club, crowds could well be below 20k next season
  15. Be a struggle for them turning the pages with trotters
  16. Name a year in the 80s when we had 11 worse players than Joey Pelupessy
  17. At most clubs now it isn’t the manager in charge of this. Liverpool have a director of football called Michael Edwards, Manchester City’s is Txiki Begiristain. They don’t get much media spotlight compared to Pep and Klopp but it’s a key role in today’s game. Pep and Klopp are probably in regular conversation with the DoF’s about which players they want to buy and sell but it’s the DoF’s job to get the deals done and find the players. As far as I know with us it’s just DC and Monk
  18. Do you really think Carlos was the one making the signings? And even if he was, that’s a failing from DC in not having anyone in charge of player recruitment and sales. Carlos is a coach. Coaches can have an input but shouldn’t have the final say in player recruitment
  19. Big part of being a goalkeeper in today’s game is being comfortable with the ball at your feet. There shouldn’t be any issue for a pro goalkeeper in having the ball passed back to him. Look at the keepers at the two top clubs in the country, Alisson and Ederson. They’re two of the best and almost give Liverpool and City an extra outfield player their distribution is that good
  20. Can you explain how we are where we are because of ‘a culture in the fan base of self entitlement’?
  21. Urhoghide looked raw against Blackburn. I think the idea of playing Iorfa in central midfield could be worth a go. He’d give us some bite in there anyway and would get up and down. Hutchinson and Bannan as a midfield two hasn’t worked in the past. And if fit, I’d still find a place for Forestieri in the 11
  22. There’s plenty of threads about what needs to change (both on and off the pitch). Where would you play him and how would you set us up?
  23. I know, this bit does me: So, if the Owls are promoted in 12 years’ time for example, 10-Year Season Ticket holders will have accumulated 12 seasons before the 10-year package has even commenced. Is it a 10 year season ticket or a 22 year season ticket?
