    BREAKING - George Hirst Gone

    There should be a rule in football where clubs with shared ownership can’t transfer players to each other. Though already I can think of small patsy clubs being used as go betweens for a share of the transfer. Football is royally screwed these days

    BREAKING - George Hirst Gone

    DH tarnished his reputation with me when he chose to tell us how desperate he was to sign for Man Utd, something he didn’t need to do and would only cause unrest. Now this has happened with George it furthers the feeling that DH doesn’t have much respect for the owls fans. But anyway, as others have said I hope we have a positive season and the Hirsts start feeling regret about how they left a massive club with brilliant supporters

    This is an interesting point Whether the FA step in for this transfer now remains to be seen.. There should probably be a rule that clubs with shared ownership can’t be allowed to transfer players to each other.

    BREAKING - George Hirst Gone

    Personally I don’t feel football is just like any other job for football players. I think there’s more to it than who can pay me the most money. Had Hirst stayed at Wednesday he would have been featuring in our first team last season, for what is a massive club. He would continue to learn and develop alongside some very decent strikers in Rhodes, Fletcher, Hooper etc. Who could mentor him. In 1-2 years he could then get in our first team more regularly and get legend status like Kane at spurs, and be a local hero. His salary would increase relative to his success. He’s chosen to play for some obscure second division team in Belgium, who won’t have the same standard of players to play with and learn from. His salary can only be marginally better than what we would have offered. And I wouldn’t move my life to Belgium for an increase in salary of a few percentage Anyway I just don’t agree with the career move he’s made. Others do

    Football is funny isn’t it, I have the complete opposite opinion to everything you’ve said here, but it doesn’t mean I’m right or you are. Just we have different opinions. Let’s hope the club have some good news for Wednesday fans next week as so far its all been negative this summer
  6. I see someone has struggled with the wiki edit function as his current team reads “sheffield Wednesdaysunderland” Maybe he’s still undecided where to be
  7. Timed that post well this morning mate
  8. And Palmer and Power were teammates at Tranmere so that’s the Instagram link.

    BREAKING - George Hirst Gone

    I think the club did offer Hirst a new deal since a year ago and he’s been refusing to sign it, and so the club probably did put him up for sale but other clubs realised they could get him on the cheap once his contract expired. But Hirsts and Leicester have done this dodgy deal, and it’s probably been there for a while

  11. You mustn’t touch his name!
  12. Same, it was quite a blurred picture at times but was worth a cheeky £5 every time. Not sure about £10 tho

    Carlos is missing us !

    The parts in bold are connected though, that’s the problem. It turns out that during those first 2 years Carlos was alienating squad members, being relaxed about fitness levels and rushing players back to action against medical advice. That resulted in us having an appalling season with players out injured or lacking in confidence, and in the vital season when our 3 years of FFP spending had to come to some success. A season where an average Cardiff side got automatic promotion, and the reason we weren’t competing was because of Carlos’ previous management approach. And it’s not hindsight either as myself like others were critiscing Carlos during that second season with some of his team selections, formations and tactics - which many felt were making us drop more points that we should have. But anyway it’s all a matter of opinion and this topic has been done to death and it’s time to move on.

    Carlos is missing us !

    Exaxtly right, in the Wednesday universe Carlos was given a rare golden egg, and instead of producing a delicious omelette and chips he came up with scrambled egg on slightly burnt toast. There’s no hatred just disappointment that we didn’t hire a proper chef to begin with. I’ve forgotten what point I’m making but if my girlfriend is reading this I want omelettes and not scrambled egg, thank you.
