  1. It’s weird because despite the thread title, in the chat Dom has said this Re Murphy and a permanent deal - I don't think that is realistic right now. The club are working on loans, free transfers and lower transfer fees. ATM, JM is probably out of their price range
  2. Windass for me too, got a feeling he will he up there as our top scorer this season. What with the lack of strikers and all and Nuhiu returning
  3. I expect if he had come through the Wednesday youth teams those saying he won a competition would be saying he looks like the next Carlton Palmer. Dismissing a 19 year old, making his first appearance in professional football, against a hard working in your face lower league side was harsh in my opinion. Even Patrice Evra couldn’t hack the pace of English football and got hauled off at half time in his first game as he kept giving the ball away. Clearly Fizz was left on for as long as possible yesterday as a learning experience which will hopefully do him the world of good. I expect we won’t see him in the first team again until the next round of the cup. Personally I think he has potential, only 19 and outmuscled and out ran older and more experienced players. Needs to get up to speed with the pace of professional football, particularly the hustle and bustle of lower league football. And have a better understanding of his team mates movements, or lack of it, to help make the right decisions when passing the ball. Also just to add playing as a box to box midfielder without any striker movement ahead of him was probably a new experience for him too
  4. Yep never going to happen as he’s going to be a star but Balogun would be an amazing signing for anybody. He’s of Nigerian decent so we could get Iorfa, Urhoghide, Odubajo, and Dele-Bashiru to have a word. We are all super eagles..
  5. Slightly interesting and depressing... https://www.examinerlive.co.uk/sport/football/news/sheffield-wednesday-points-deduction-history-18854271
  6. I watched sky sports news for the first time in donkeys and it said we are in talks to sign him, but I assume they’ve been saying that for the past 3 weeks 😆
  7. Interesting that Dom or Nixon said Garner wasn’t our number one target, wonder who we are trying to get that’s better In that position.
  8. Good interview, some cliches but the general feeling about Monk from inside the football world is he’s a good manager. Needs to get his team proving it on the pitch now
  9. Different positions, Brown is an attacking midfielder and Windass is a forward. In my opinion.
  10. It’s the worry isn’t it that we are trying to sign players but they are choosing to go elsewhere. Just because we haven’t made many signings doesn’t mean we aren’t trying
  11. This ^ it will be interesting to see if the report today highlights any further wrong doing by us as if not we shouldn’t be punished for the EFL’s mistake
  12. Interesting point, I wonder what teams would complain then? Wouldn’t effect anyone’s league status
  13. Cardiff paid £2m, so was probably out of our price range. Hopefully we are after similar types of player but think we are shopping in the bargain bucket market
  14. It looks alright but definitely need a decent centre forward or two that can score 20+ goals. Hopefully we can pull off some surprise transfers. Murphy back on loan would be a good start
