  1. A couple of weeks we all had this down as a straight forward 3 points. Not now though after 2 straight wins v Swansea and Fulham they look like they might be on the way back up. This will be a really tough one tonight and I'll be delighted if we can come away with a win. 2-1 win Fletcher and Iorfa - A delighted me
  2. Fox is a steady squad player, nothing more, nothing less. I think one of the issues with Dawson is that he's the exact opposite of Westwood in terms of command of his area. Westwood is almost too eager to come rushing off his line at times which we all know has got him into trouble on quite a few occasions over the years. Dawson in the other hand would be reluctant to exit his 6 yard box if the goal line was on fire. The difference in style between the two will surely mean a certain amount of adjustment for the back 4, particularly when the change is made so late. So much of defending is about communication and understanding between the back 4 and goalkeeper and I think Dawson is always going to be at a disadvantage in that respect as he's the one stepping in. He's s decent keeper at this level and is more than capable. Yes he needs to improve his command of his box but name me a keeper at any level who doesn't have aspects if his game to improve on. For the record, I think going out of our way to cheer them is ridiculous and patronising. Just don't boo them.
  3. This, this and thrice this!!! I'm delighted it's not just me.
  4. Me too. Said as much to my mate, he's got that same all or nothing look about him that Thome had. If he goes for a ball he's fully committed. Also happy to come out with the ball from the back. Did it a couple of times first half and Hutch sat in to cover for him. First I impressions suggest he could he a steal, hopefully he can continue in this vein.
  5. And if that happens it's another £4.4m for us. Win win.
  6. If he can stay fit through the first half of the season we need to make sure he gets a new contract sorted. A fantastic footballer.
  7. I think this is actually a key point (apart from hugging a dingle obvs, who knows what they'll do with that extra finger). Most of us know from experience over the years that the authorities jump on any opportunity to portray football fans as knuckle dragging thugs. Let's not give them the opportunity. Anyway, well all be delighted after a 6-0 win for the mighty owls so it won't be an issue. Shut up, it's the morning of the first home game of the season, at least let me dream for another few hours.
  8. Ok, so if the club are responsible for traffic management let's just shut penistone road completely from 2 till 6 rather than just cone off 1 lane. I'm sure the council and SYP won't have any issues with us doing that. After all public safety is their primary concern right? This report has clearly been produced with the sole purpose of deflecting any blame for the issues at the derby game away from SYP. I guess we shouldnt be surprised, lets be honest, they got previous in this area. A perfect example of this is the assertion that they couldn't keep the fans back because the concourses aren't big enough to hold e everyone. I mean it's not as if theres a large space with allocated seating ideal for this readily available is it?
  9. The report even specifically states that it's recommendations for all fans from the north stand to 'egress' to the east side of the stadium onto Penistone Rd should only be implemented after further analysis has been carried out on the impact of that action. Has anyone seen THAT report.....?
  10. This is starting to feel like some sort of conspiracy now SAG, SYP, EFL, FA, FSA, fans and chairmen of our rival clubs all lining up to slap us down every time we can see even the faintest light at the end of the tunnel. Mr C has clearly been weeing a lot of people off over the last few years. fizz em.
