    Sheffield Wednesday Youth Team
  1. Just been announced, 5.30pm Kick-off on Sky https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11703/11658418/sky-bet-championship-fixtures-live-on-sky-sports-leeds-vs-sheffield-wednesday-added
  2. Complete guesses, but I will say across the top from left: Carlos, Chansiri, Sougou. Then Joao, Keiren Westwood and Palmer on the next line. The one that looks like Ozz might be 23, so Sam Hutchinson. Maybe the one with the big R (4th down right hand side) is Reach?
  3. I have Hirst and Pressman. Attic or garage somewhere (3 or 4 house moves since then)
  4. Westwood 6 Hunt 4 Lees 6 Loovens 5 Pudil 4 Reach 6 Lee 6 Bannan 5 Wallace 5 Forrestieri 5 Fletcher 7 Dawson 4 Hooper 6
  5. Between Reach and Fletcher for MOTM imho. Westwood 6 - Poor kicking at times. Could have he done better on the 2nd goal? Will have to watch it back to be sure Hunt 7 - One of his better games of recent times. Think teams look to exploit the space he leaves but was sometimes a threat Hutchinson 5 - Penalty, red card, not his best game Lees 5 - Abraham had the beating of him for most of the match. Too often came and didn't get it Pudil 6 - Linked up well with Reach in the first half Lee 8 - So important as so often is the driving force from midfield, willing to run past his man and break into the box. Quality finish Jones 5 - Just seemed to be there to take the ball from our defenders. Nothing to write home about Bannan 7 - Different player after his (lucky?) goal. Out wide in the first half he wouldn't show for it or go into the space. Just playing 2 yard passes. Passes too slow and getting cut out. Started finding Reach in the 2nd half and playing forward. After the goal looked like Zidane again Reach 9 - Only player able to beat a man in the first half. Looks an exciting prospect and a good signing. Helped out Poodle well until he had to go off. Did well getting the ball in. Hooper 4 - Didn't do enough. Seems off the pace. Nothing seems to be coming off Fletcher 9 - Works so hard, goes for everything even if it looks a lost cause at times. Has the quality too (apart from the 2 scuffed shots, oops). Really like this guy. Have a quality striker on our hands Forrestieri 7 - Full of effort and usual jinking and keeping the ball. Didn't seem to know what to with it at times but so much more effective than Hooper Wallace 7 - Excellent when he came on, apart from his corner delivery Sasso 4 - A worry
  6. There is no money to spend and Buckley has probably been brought in to play on the right. Joey O'Brien and Mathieu Flamini are both still without a club though who could do a job at right back. Bit of a long shot but Flamini could shore up the midfield too on days Hutch has to play at the back. Bringing back O'Brien is probably more realistic and is only 30. Or a punt on getting Ola Aina on loan from Chelsea?
  7. 1. Wallace out (see point 2) 2. Hutchinson in midfield 3. Abdi as central attacking midfield (4-1-2-1-2 / 4-3-2-1 / 4-3-1-2 whatever CC finds works best) If I could have a 4th it would be to replace Hunt sharpish
  8. Westwood 5 - Two shots on target, two goals Hunt 2 - Far far far too slow getting the ball in and poor delivery when he does. Out of position defensively. Unable to beat his man. Terrible performance Pudil 4 - Below average. Again pushed up but no quality delivery Lees 6 - Pretty solid as always Hutchinson 6 - Ditto Lee 7 - Tried to play, got about but needed a bruiser alongside him Bannan 6 - Not his best performance by his standards. Worked hard but didn't have the final product and let the Leeds midfield run past him a few times Abdi 5 - Looked okay for someone forced to play out of position until he injured his shoulder Forrestieri 6 - Created chances, especially in the first half, but couldn't finish them. Put a shift in and did his best to win the ball back when he lost it Wallace 3 - Gave the ball away far too much. Didn't help on the outside when we broke forward. Poor set pieces. Seemed to always be in the wrong place Fletcher 8 - Best player on the pitch today. Worked hard and was able to beat his man. Strong, good on the ball, takes up good positions and will be a quality striker for us this season if we can get him service Hooper 4 - Didn't really do enough for me. We looked better in the first half with FF and Fletcher breaking with pace and Fletcher flicking it on. Had the best chance of the game and passed it straight to Green Buckley 4 - Didn't have much of a chance to show what he could do playing RB Jones 5 - Fitted in to the middle and tried to play forward but came on after the game was gone
  9. ...oh, and I'm middle aged and 'reasonably' able-bodied, so don't mind if I have to sit or stand. UTO
  10. Wow. Reading most of these replies it's shocking how little wawaw attitude there really is. I don't think anyone has actually said everyone should have been sat down (even though it's the law), but that there should be a bit of consideration amongst your own. There were two very old guys near me who couldn't stand. They obviously, in this situation, couldn't choose their seats. At Hillsborough they would have probably gone in the south, but through no fault of their own they were on about row 15 (2nd tier). The owls near me in front of them were smart enough to sit so they could also enjoy the game, apart from the bounce which is fair enough I'm sure they'll agree. These fellas have probably seen more Wednesday games than a lot of you put together, so to say they shouldn't have gone as it's 'an away game' is unfair and down right selfish. If only away fans went to Wembley you'd be embarrassed because it would have looked like the Hull end did. I'm for standing sections for those that want it (something they don't do at Wembley) but I just ask those that stand look out for their fellow owls. Not tell people to "fùç.k off" shove em about and (at some games, admittedly not here) throw smoke bombs at their feet. It all feels like "I'm going to do what I want to enjoy myself, fùç.k the rest of you", fellow owls or not. Yes it used to be worse and it's a good thing we have moved away from some of the horrible behaviour that used to happen on the terraces. We don't want to see it return. People here also seem to have short memories. We didn't stand at Cardiff, we didn't stand in 93 and the atmosphere was fantastic. I have been to away games where we have had to sit and Wednesday fans have still outsung the rest of the ground and created 'atmosphere'. Wembley and the bouncing looked superb. The atmosphere was great (like Cardiff). I'm not saying we all should have sat down. I'm asking only that people look out for each other. Not everyone can (or wants) to stand. This wasn't an away game, it was a final. Those that stump up their hard earned every year and pay to support their club (ST, membership) had a right to go. Some, imo, need to quit being so abusive and selfish. If you want an even emptier looking Hillsborough then keep that attitude up, I'm sure it won't hurt in eventually helping to drive some of our fans away from going to football matches altogether. We've all been through the bad times, now lets all be there for the good. UTO
  11. They are. All the middle tier that are not down the sides of the pitch are cat 2.
  12. Yep. I had a look at pink ones on NW side for getting to the tube station easy. Blocks 242, 243, 244 and 245 all had seats available. I'd imagine the SW corner would have plenty too as it is further from Wembley Way but tbh I didn't check the block numbers here.
  13. Sorry, I thought it was today, with everyone signing up for memberships and Owls Foundation I didn't know they could guarantee all them. Anyway, for people who are getting them tomorrow, if they are interested, there looks to be still plenty of seats in all price tiers apart from the most expensive (tier 1, seats around the half way line), they have all gone.
  14. Just got mine. Block: 245 Row: 6 Plenty of blocks left. People should be fine tomorrow.
