  1. Who do you genuinely think would pay 5 million for him? All the championship clubs are hamstrung with FFP and I don’t see any premier league clubs signing him. I’d just be glad to get his wages off the books now if he’s on the reported 25k a week. You could count the number of good games he’s had in the last two seasons on one hand
  2. If you look at our last five games and roughly what odds the bookies will have us to win each one: Leeds - 5/1 Norwich - 5/1 Bristol City - 7/4 Preston - 2/1 QPR - Evens Putting that in a 5 fold you’ll get odds of around 500-1. And even then it probably won’t be enough. But I’ll still be at Leeds on Saturday and I’m backing us at 5-1 against them
  3. Yeah look at the bottom half of the table and a lot of those teams (like Wigan, QPR, Birmingham, Blackburn and Brentford) hammered us under Jos. They’re the games that have cost us top 6, not one penalty miss
  4. We’ve too many strikers so at least a couple will leave in the summer. If we could offload Rhodes, Nuhiu and Winnall I’d offer new deals to Matias and Hooper. I’d rather see Hooper and Matias at the club next season than Rhodes and Nuhiu
  5. People get annoyed because you can’t say anything that might offend someone now. Watch just about any comedy or comedian from the 60s, 70s, 80s or even 90s and they wouldn’t be allowed today
  6. Hooper or Hector for me. Frustrating second half, when you miss chances against a team with good attacking players it can always happen. And the fans singing ‘Brucey give us a wave’ when we went 1-0 up, don’t sing that again so early in a game. I can just about have that song if we’re 3 up in the second half but not after 10 minutes
  7. We’re not finishing 6th anyway are we but this is a really daft question
  8. I take it you weren’t on the kop yesterday? The bars on the kop are a joke. I gave up trying to get a beer at half time yesterday, stood there for 10 minutes and the queue had barely moved
  9. Stoke is the biggest game of the season so far now. Lose there and it’s probably all over. If we win there, the Villa game then becomes massive. What a second half to the season it’s been. Has anyone posted what the league table would look like if it started from the day Jos went?
  10. Do they also have to stump up £39-£46 for a Villa ticket and £33-£39 for a Forest ticket to be allowed to go to Wembley? We’ve a big ground that we should be trying to fill. Views like yours just drive people away. Not everyone is a super fan like you
  11. We beat Bolton. Have you seen how many games they’ve lost this season? Happy with the win but it’s not one for a big stiffy yet for me
  12. If we get top 6 from that run of games it’d probably be the club’s best achievement since 1992. Saturday’s a must win. Derby are in no form and I’d say the other contenders for 6th are Bristol City, Forest and Villa and we’ve still to play them all at home
  13. He’s class. Seems to like it at Wednesday aswell but I think the only chance we have of keeping him next year is if we go up
  14. I’ll agree with you on Palmer and Fox. But Boyd is reportedly on around 30k a week so has to take the hammer for what he’s delivered on the pitch for us
  15. It’s a geniune question. If Boyd was on a lower wage and tickets were priced correctly at Wednesday he wouldn’t get the stick he does. The fact is for a highly paid player he doesn’t deliver so deservedly has to take some of the flak
  16. Are you happy that we charge the prices we do to fund Boyd’s wages?
  17. Where does he rank in the worst signings from the Carlos era? Abdi is the worst signing for me but he has some competition with Rhodes, Boyd, Jones, Matias and Urby
  18. Good player was Emerson but wouldn't place him that highly in your Wednesday centre halves. He was here less than two years
  19. Which players? Most of the main culprits like Abdi, Jones, Matias and Boyd will all be released in the summer anyway. The stalwarts we have Westwood, Lees, Hutch, Bannan etc have generally all continued to perform when they’ve been picked
  20. That lyric might need a change.... we’ve a squad of 40 players
  21. Makes you wonder how we used to get 20,000 on there in the days when it was standing. There’s not enough bars on the kop either (or staff working on the bars). Unless you leave your seat about 10 minutes before the end of the first half, getting a beer at half time is virtually impossible
  22. Most of FF’s best games in a Wednesday shirt have been when he’s played on the left. Even though he was wide left, that first year under Carlos he was a focal point for us and nearly every attack went through him. He doesn’t seem to influence games like that anymore.
  23. Hector MOM for me closely followed by Lees and Palmer. Boyd garbage as expected and Bannan disappointing. Was hoping Baz and Forestieri would dictate the play tonight but it didn’t happen for either of them
  24. They’ve not thrown around the £s like we did under Carlos. And there’s a good chance they’ll get a big sell on fee when Brooks goes this year to keep FFP at bay and go again. I don’t like giving them any credit but I thought they looked decent tonight. We’re unbeaten in 9 at home so was always going to be tough game for them. They will go close this year
  25. If one signing sums up the recruitment from the Carlos era it’s Boyd. Too old, too slow and too overpaid
