    FF Was dropped from the team

    Which I'm sure Jos would be fully aware of. It's his job on the line ultimately. Fortunately this time it's paid off for him.

    Marco Matias

    Just hope he's able to stay fit long enough for us to see the qualities we thought he would bring to us when we signed him.
  3. I didn’t think the Ipswich player made contact - it was right in-front of me - but it can still be a red card. Had Fessi not jumped it could easily have been a serious injury. Thought their player wasn’t in control so a valid red.

    Man of the match and ratings

    Dawson 6. One good save Palmer 6. Goalline block. Lees 6. Thorniley 7. Looked the more assured centre back. Penney 7. For only his second game he did very well. Pelupessy 6. Lots of donkey work. Bannan 7. We need to get his contract extended as soon as possible. Reach 6. One of his more quiet games, still afraid to tackle. Matias 6. Worked hard, ball didn’t bounce for him when he was through. Joao 7. Two good finishes Nuhiu 6. Not the Atdhe of last season. Didn’t do much. Forestieri 7. Always looking to go forwards, draws so many players to him he created space. Fletcher 6. Too short a cameo to really rate. Largely average scores, for a largely average performance. We’ll need to play better than that if we want to get anywhere this season, but it’s a win nonetheless, so plenty to be pleased about this evening.

    no 1 keeper and captain

    I expect it will be Wildsmith and Lees. I'd like it to be Westwood and Pudil.

    Unpopular opinion: Wednesday edition

    Greasy chip butty is better than Hi Ho Sheffield Wednesday. Don't particularly like the chip butty song, but it's unique to them. Hi ho silver lining is used all over the place, we should have our own unique anthem.
  7. A shame it didn't work out for him here.

    That survey

    Let's wait until the window closes shall we. For all we know we might be saying screw FFP and about to spend a fortune. I doubt that's going to happen, but judgement can only be made once we know what has happened during the entirety of the transfer window.
  9. Surely that’s just moving the queue from the park to the car park. Won’t be as big, but those who have to have it day 1 will be queuing regardless. Good to see it out nice and early this season. Let’s make it all 2/3 by the start of the season.
  10. We really need to have a good start for once. These fixtures should give us a chance of doing that.

    Would you rather...

    As much as I'd like to see us in the top 6 again, it's got to be England winning the world cup for me. That would be a once in a lifetime event. Top six has been a twice in the past three years event already. Now, England win the world cup, or Wednesday win the Premier League, that's a different question...
  12. Like many, the Michael Owen hat-trick stands out in my memory. Totally unplayable, such a shame the injuries ruined him.

    The new/old #SWFC badge

    I like the new badge, but I also like the old one. I don't see we can't utilise both. I think the old one in particular lends itself to merchandise. A subtle old owl on some stuff. The new badge doesn't lend itself to being small and discreet. Would allow a broader range of merchandise. Anything we can do to improve that revenue stream should be looked at.

    Anyone remember this guy

    Definitely one of my favourite players at that time

    How far behind are we?

    We’re some way short of automatic promotion, that’s for sure. The lower half of the playoffs is attainable with one or two additions. It’s so difficult to tell, at the moment Millwall are going great guns. Likewise earlier in the season, Bristol City and United. I doubt many would have expected any of them to be challenging for the playoffs at the start of the season. More than anything consistency is what’s needed if you’re going to be up there. We’ve been sadly lacking in this department all season. I think we could do it, but as it stands I see mid table as where we’d finish next season, so tweaks must be made in the summer.
