  1. I still don’t see anyone in our squad who’ll score 15 league goals but I’m more optimistic than I was a few weeks ago
  2. This one didn’t age well Great to be proved wrong… who would have thought Colin and Steve Gibson would do us a favour
  3. No chance Warnock is loaning him to us
  4. You have noticed how much business other clubs in league 1 have been doing? And that two of the league’s top goalscorers from last season Joe Pigott and Charlie Wyke have both signed for new clubs in our league in the last couple of weeks? Here’s a full list of the ins and outs so far in league 1 this summer: https://www.eadt.co.uk/sport/ipswich-town/league-one-transfer-window-2021-8040208
  5. I never said they were decent and we were glad to see most of them go. But (with Borner aswell now) it’s 15 players that have left the club this summer that played first team football last season and were in and around the first team squad. And so far we’ve brought in 3 replacements. The under 23s finished bottom of their league too last year so it’s asking a lot to expect the youth to step up to first team level
  6. Friendly reminder we’ve scored 1 goal in 270 minutes of football against Alfreton, Barnsley and West Brom. Even your man Tony Pulis would be wanting more goals than that
  7. We’ve lost 14 of the first team squad since last season: Westwood, Odubajo, Penney, Lees, van Aken, Ozaze, Pelupessy, Shaw, Brown, Harris, Kachunga, Reach, Marriott and Rhodes. And so far we’ve only brought in 3 replacements Brown, Adeniran and Shodipo. Doesn't take Columbo to work out we’re short on numbers. And the season starts officially a week on Sunday
  8. Hunt made 43 appearances last season for Bristol City, 41 in the league
  9. Be a great signing if he’d come back. And it’d be typical of Wednesday to finally replace Jack Hunt three years after he left with…. Jack Hunt
  10. Think we’d struggle to find any club willing to pay Dawson more than 1k a week
  11. What do we do with him? Try agree a severance package and pay him off or leave him picking up nearly 10k a week until 2024? His wages are going to be a drain on the club for another 3 years. He must be the highest paid keeper in league 1 by a distance
  12. Problem is I don’t know if we can afford to bring another keeper in. We’re paying Dawson and Wildsmith 15k a week combined which will be more than any other league 1 club are paying their two keepers
  13. I had a scan on the Huddersfield, Oxford, QPR and Wycombe forums after we’ve signed Adeniran, Brown and Shodipo. Adeniran looks like a he could be a great signing based on what the Wycombe fans were saying about him. The general view on the Huddersfield forum was that Brown is crap and can’t defend. And the Oxford forum said they can do better than Shodipo and not many of them wanted to see him back for another season. But I accept it’s where we are as a club currently that we have to sign championship cast offs on frees and loans so let’s hope they all come good in a Wednesday shirt
  14. I’m a bit concerned what it says about Shodipo’s ability if QPR are happy to loan him out but they’re signing Odubajo
  15. Do you want to watch these goals and tell me that’s a confident goalkeeper in command of his defence?
  16. Are you Garry Monk or Jos? Did you watch Rotherham away last season?
  17. Just had a look at some stats on this. Westwood played in 198 championship games for us and kept 70 clean sheets. Dawson has played in 65 championship games and kept 16 clean sheets. Westwood’s clean sheets per game for Wednesday was 35.4%. Dawson’s clean sheets per game is 24.6%
  18. Stats can be skewed over a short period. Be interested to see the points per game of the games Dawson and Westwood have started over the last few years. Has he ever convinced you as a Wednesday number 1?
  19. Yes no way we’re offloading him unless we give him a severance package. He’ll see out the next 3 years for us on 10k a week then leave for nothing and probably end up in league 2
  20. Dawson is on 10k a week for another 3 years so we’re stuck with him because no other club is going to pay him that
  21. Cameron Dawson is on £10,000 a week with us for another 3 years
  22. Factor in that turnover will take a big hit in the years 20/21 and 21/22 though. I think the losses in the next accounts will be higher than in these
  23. These accounts were for 2019/20 so the wages of Fletcher, Forestieri, Rhodes, Westwood, Bannan, Lees, Reach, Lee, Nuhiu, Winnall are all still in there
