  1. They won it because they had Kante, Mahrez and Vardy along with a strong team unit and the usual big clubs all had issues that year. Kante is arguably the best player in the world in his position and it’s no coincidence he’s gone on to win another prem and a World Cup. I don’t see how that correlates with our squad though?
  2. If the players are worth the millions you seem to think how do you explain us losing (and being outplayed) at home to QPR and midtable championship finishes the last two years?
  3. How are we in a position of strength? Blame Jos and Carlos if you want but the main reason we’ve finished 15th and 12th in the championship the last two years is the players aren’t good enough
  4. For one week after 4 games. When was the last time we were top of a league for more than a few weeks or actually finished top of a league?
  5. None of us on here would watch them for free but that’s not the point. There’s plenty of people that will watch them next season. Wednesday should be trying to fill the empty seats and grow the club. There aren’t many clubs in the country with more empty seats for their home games than us. And the posters who say ‘they’ll come back when we’re top of the league’.... Wednesday have never been top of a league in my lifetime. Bruce will need to work miracles to have us challenging for top 2 next year
  6. Forest have averaged over 28k this season with sensible pricing. I think we’d be something similar if we had the same pricing as them.
  7. I think it’s a great league. The teams are evenly matched and you can’t underestimate the physicality of the championship. Over a 46 game season all teams go through peaks and dips in form. You could argue the quality would be improved if there were only 20 teams in the league and a 38 game season but then you’d lose a lot of what makes the championship so good
  8. Still can’t believe Warnock paid that for Madine but it was the January window and he was in form at the time. You can see the odd inflated price in January when teams are going for promotion. Look at what we paid for Rhodes. I’ll have a side bet with you if you want? Other than maybe Forestieri, not one player will fetch the fee quoted in the original post this summer
  9. Forestieri is good enough for the prem, but he’s probably missed the boat now
  10. Player value in the championship has took a hit with FFP. If the rules on that are eased, you could see some more money being spent. And Norwich, Leeds and the pigs have all shown this year that you don’t need to spend big to succeed in this league
  11. Are you serious? Some posters on here have unrealistic values of our players. You can blame Carlos and Jos but the main reason we’ve been midtable the last two seasons is that the majority of our squad are average championship players. And which teams in the championship are actually spending money?
  12. You do realise players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney went for free transfers? I don’t think anyone on here has questioned his ability... just the fact he’s 29, has missed a lot of football and is out of contract next year
  13. It’s a tough one... keep him until January and we’ll probably lose him for nothing unless we offer a new deal this summer. But when fully fit and his head is right he’s as good as anyone in the league
  14. Would you offer him a new contract?
  15. Bannan never hits a shot or cross first time when it’s on his right foot. All players have a stronger foot but sometimes you have to just hit it. He should have struck that first time tonight
  16. Dawson could have been sent off and Fletcher’s goal was hand ball so have to take it both ways. But I didn’t see that much stoppage time and didn’t think it was a foul from Matias either. On the free kick... Bannan went back to go on the post and Dawson sends him away. A man on the post clears that equaliser off the line
  17. I’ve give him a bit of stick in this thread... delighted to be proved wrong with that goal tonight. When you see what he can do when he wants it he is one of the best attackers in this league. Waste of a talent really... he should have played at the top level. That goal tonight has probably put a million or two on his value. So do we sell in the summer if a decent bid comes in or keep hold and risk losing him for nothing next summer?
  18. It has to be Springett really. He must be the keeper with the most international caps gained while playing for Wednesday? He’s before my time though so I’ve gone for Westwood. He’s slightly ahead of Pressman for me. Woods was quality at times for us but he’ll always be remembered some errors in the big games. And my main memory of Hodge is the game where Steve Ogrizovic scored
  19. Debatable whether Winnall would have fetched £2-3 million before his injury. As it is he’s scored 10 goals in two and a half years since we signed him and hasn’t scored a goal since December 2017. No way would a club risk that kind of money on a player who could be crocked and finished at this level. If he comes back, looks sharp and scores goals before the end of the season then maybe but not right now
  20. Leeds will have a lower wage bill than us and comparing the ages of the players who played on Saturday in the two sides: Casilla 32, Jansson 28, Phillips 23, Beradi 30, Ayling 27, Klich 28, Roberts 20, Alioski 27, Hernández 34, Bamford 25, Harrison 22, Forshaw 27, Roofe 26, Dallas 27 Leeds average age 26.9 Westwood 34, Palmer 27, Lees 28, Hector 26, Fox 25, Reach 26, Hutchison 29, Bannan 29, Boyd 33, Fletcher 32, Hooper 31, Matias 29, Nuhiu 29, Forestieri 29 Wednesday average age 29.1 Once Reach went off we didn’t have a midfielder or attacker on the field under 29. Sorting out this squad is going to be a big job for Brucey
  21. The post never compared us to Ajax. Just the fact we’ve spunked a lot of cash on has beens and never beens rather than putting it into youth development. We didn’t have a player on the pitch who was under 25 on Saturday and it showed. Compared to Leeds we looked short on legs
  22. He can’t even get in our side ahead of George Boyd or Marco Matias and you think Leeds would want him to spearhead a premier league strikeforce? He’s a similar player to what they already have anyway in Pablo Hernandez. But he’s not as consistent as Hernández and doesn’t have the experience in top flight football of Hernández
  23. Jordan Rhodes hasn’t been a first team regular starter since he left Blackburn in January 2016. He’s played under 4 different managers in that time... Karanka, Carlos, Jos and Farke. Have all those 4 managers got it wrong about him?
  24. Doesn’t sound like we’ll be able to offer him what he’s currently on either though. He’s still quite a big name for championship football (and still a class player and proven goalscorer at this level). So even with the fitness risk I think there’d be a few clubs who’d sign Gary Hooper on a free.
  25. Yes that’s what I thought aswell. I don’t like to say it but if you were Westwood or Hooper’s agent you’d probably be already negotiating deals/signing on fees with other clubs
