    Sell Reach?

    I don't see why not? We bought him for around 5m and he's done nothing but improve since being with us. I mean if Rhodes is worth 11m then surely a more diverse, younger player can attract the kind of interest that would warrant that kind of transfer fee?

    Sell Reach?

    Now, before I get any stick for this just hear me out. In today's market I reckon Reach could be worth at least £15m if he keeps up this kind of form he's in at the moment by January. He provides goals which is obviously crucial, he's gifted with his right and left foot, he's strong, comfortable on the ball. He may not have the most pace about him but he sure knows how to beat a player. And to top it off he's comfortable in a number of different positions. He's also English which will increase the asking price somewhat. My point is, is he too crucial for us as an individual or should we sell him and reinvest in different areas e.g. Cb or fullback? Personally I see benefits in both options but I feel like if the right offer came in for him I'd let him go and reinvest the money elsewhere as i feel like he is our most lucrative asset at the moment. Thoughts?

    Wednesday fans born 1990 and since

    Born in 99, always considered myself a bad luck charm for Wednesday since the year I was born was the season we were relegated from the prem Best player in my opinion has to be Antonio. Fessi and Bannan come close but always remember him being miles better than the squad that we had at the time. Would love to have kept him and seen how he would fit in with the current squad

    The promotion winning team

    Listened to a podcast about Nile Ranger and his life/career by true geordie. Pretty much just says he knows he's been a tw@ in the past but is waiting for an opportunity to get back into football. Not sure how much I believe him as he just seems a bit lazy but its a good listen if anyone has a couple hours free.

    Andy rhodes

    Was talking to my mate last night, he's just been released from Blackpool under 21's as they couldn't afford to keep him on. He had a trial at Oldham the other week and they told him that they were looking at getting a new gk coach in so could well be rhodes:/

    WORLD CUP 2018 - Matchday Thread

    Say Saudi Arabia were a championship side, would they beat us? Could they challenge for promotion?
  10. What's the most freakish goal that we've scored? Wallace v Brighton in playoff semi final 2nd leg where he crossed it and everyone just watched it go in? Hooper v Cardiff where he pinched it off the keeper and (again) crossed it into the goal? Which other weird goals do you remember?

    Creating new fans...

    Living in Scarborough, I never used to see kids wearing scarborough shirts until they moved to their new stadium and now they're everywhere. And with them being promoted its only going to increase. Think kids just need a reason to take interest. Genuinely think its the fact we've been awful for 18 years so reckon as soon as we go up more kids will start taking interest, even if it's just because we'll be playing better teams.

    The away end

    Was in the lower lep for the game against the pigs and at half time the fence separating both sets of fans just swung open at one point so don't think its the best idea to have big followings in the upper while our fans are in the lower unless some work is done to better-segregate both sets of fans
  13. Sounds about right, what year did it shut like?
