  1. 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
  2. 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?
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Are you happy that we charge the prices we do to fund Boyd’s wages?
  10. 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
  11. Good player was Emerson but wouldn't place him that highly in your Wednesday centre halves. He was here less than two years
  12. 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
  13. That lyric might need a change.... we’ve a squad of 40 players
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. If one signing sums up the recruitment from the Carlos era it’s Boyd. Too old, too slow and too overpaid
  19. Remember listening to praise or grumble and a caller said Guylain was like a black Zidane
  20. We averaged 27k two seasons ago, 26k last season and it’s down to 23k this season. 4,000 people who were going every week at the start of last season have stopped going. And it was the first time we’d played them for over 5 years so there was always going to be more demand for that one
  21. Fair point. Just looking on Forest’s site now at the prices for their next 3 home games. They’re charging £25 against Hull and £28 for the Swansea and Villa games. Under 12s are £6, under 18s are £12 and under 24s are £14. You don’t have to be a gold or silver member to qualify for those prices and Villa will be one of their biggest games of the season. Easy to see why they’re averaging 5k more than us this year
  22. The big draws charge high prices because they still sell out at those prices. I’d understand it if we were. Do you think we should be getting better gates than Middlesbrough and Stoke or is that how big we are now? If Forest and Derby can average 28k, we should be aiming for that aswell
  23. And we’d be able to generate more revenue through advertising with a full stadium. Plus the extra food and beer sales. Chansiri’s pricing makes no sense. It’s like a closed shop for non season ticket holders
  24. We’re 150-1 to get promoted. It’s worth a small bet at those odds. If we beat the pigs and then Derby away in the next two games I’ll start to believe. I think we’d need to win 9 of the last 12 games to make the top 6
  25. With every win and good performance it makes you wonder wtf Jos was doing
