  1. There hasn't been a single 0-0 in the premier league so far this season. But sure...
  2. It's just so obvious the whole plan and reasoning. Leicester - Took a big whack of the top 6, their global appeal and champions league place. MUST AVOID IN FUTURE Newcastle - Has the fan base, city, stadium etc to become a top 6 with the right owner. MUST AVOID Wolves - Became an established top half team that threatens European places due to new owners. MUST AVOID Everton, West Ham - Average prem teams that will never threaten but always compete. MUST KEEP IN LEAGUE Amazon prime - As seen with many clubs, and live tennis, they will no doubt make a deal for live games, good
  3. Let’s be honest, now Leeds are up the big teams will take them in. As that’s the big Yorkshire club sky sports spaff over. They want it to go all American, and next step will be universities doing working with clubs for scholarships (unis need the money now there are no international students) Uni teams will takeover interest of Efl clubs, and mix with the B teams. Its all very believable that will happen, and top teams won’t care about UK fans, they want worldwide fans where the money is. Sadly I just can’t see it stopping with the way sky encourage
  4. Wolves wear Orange, and then have that white and blue mess of an away kit. Why on earth do they need a 3rd kit!? This 3rd kit trend is getting silly, just money money for a shirt worn probably twice or 3 times in a season max.
  5. Let's be honest, we aren't far from being an NFL style sport. With the big 6-10 franchises, using smaller clubs as feeders. Locked top league so the teams can be marketed to death without fear of relegations etc. They were trying it with Cricket and the 100 series, which thankfully has been delayed. EFL teams need to make a stand soon otherwise they will just be cut adrift. League 2 are very close to that now, and wouldn't surprise me come the end of the season if it becomes part time.
  6. 2 cups. The FA Cup - As many teams in England as possible can enter, a true winner takes all cup with Champions League place reward The League cup - Championship, L1, L2 - Europa league for the winner, gives all these clubs something bigger to fight for outside the day to day survival of their league.
  7. If we can benefit in anyway for FFP then absolutely offer to help. If we don't i'd be happy to see us take the moral high-ground and help them up tbh, as long as they eat some very humble pie in one way or the other. Tired of clubs against clubs dragging eachother all down, would be nice to start trying to lead being collaborative or something (even though we rarely seem to be the ones to kick up a fuss).
  8. Another average half like that and it will be a 4-0 win
  9. Children's hospital on the home shirt please. They yellow went well on the stripes, and makes such a refreshing positive change to other teams with betting companies or middle east travel. Would be nice to start being the charitable club and build a rep from it. Away kit can go with Elev8 or whatever for the cash injection. Can't imagine a championship shirt is really worth sponsoring at the moment as it is.
  10. Non interesting teams so far, Wait until Man United/Liverpool get drawn, will be the headline
  11. Controlling the game against a team that will be absolutely knackered in the final 20. Avoid anything silly or injuries in a nothing game. Bring Rhodes on fresh against a tired defence to make it easier for him and confidence. In the meantime see if we can sneak a goal from ambitious passes. We aren’t looking to make a statement, and would be poor management if we were. Happy to watch them practice dominating midfield with passes and get used to eachother.
  12. Only just seen Lavery starting for them, nailed on goal
  13. Playing a team in red. Why on earth aren’t we in our blue and white.
  14. This, a die hard lower league fan. All the self inflicting humour that comes with it. He has to talk about all these prem teams fighting it out over millions of pounds with the worlds best players. 30 seconds later he has to acknowledge Hartlepool are 4-0 down to Staines Town, scored by some chap who has an office job on Monday. He's actually paid a lot more than all the players he supports, and genuine seems to care about some of them. Switch that to some Messi superfan and all of the British self-pity charm of the show is dead.
  15. I've not like either away kits the last 2 years, but more down to not liking green or grey. (I've always thought away kits should be bold and bright and associate them with away games in cold winter nights). But they are really nailing a modern twist on our home kit. And as mentioned on here, our social media and marketing are really linking up well across it all. Just modernise the badge and I think we have the Wednesday brand sorted.
  16. Just seen this on social media, I’d take elev8 over Adidas anyday edit: not sure that’s right as Leicester’s away kit isn’t black, maybe ignore
  17. Classic unsung hero and workhorse.
  18. How will it go down on the fixture list. Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 EFL Chansiri - 80, 90+5. Chansiri(OG) 5 Bookings Chansiri Red cards Miere Quite an incredible game at Hillsborough, with the EFL taking an early lead due to an own goal by ever divisive Wednesday captain Chansiri. Things got worse when Katrien Miere was sent off for fighting with her own team mate Chansiri. After a half time team talk, and the introduction of a loan player from FC Independent Disciplinary Commission. Suddenly the momentum swung and Chansiri pulled a goal back after a
  19. 1. Get young hungry players who just want to play attacking football, with an experienced head at the back or heart of midfield. 2. Build a fortress Hillsborough mood again, we need to be difficult to beat at home, use youthful energy at the end of games to knick points. It doesn't need to look pretty for the rest of 2020 because it wont't be. 3. Develop squad to do well under pressure (being in the relegation zone for the rest of 2020 should help that) 4. January - depending on situation, buy for survival, or ideally avoid big additions if we are on track to survive (save money,
  20. Norwich - 7 players in, 1 out (for free). Wonder how they afforded that... They will be back up again in 1-3 seasons, as long as there are parachute payments they are a yo-yo club.
  21. No, we should chuck all our resources into suing the EFl for racism and corruption instead. Without being a bit up ourselves, we are one of the big clubs in the Efl and have any real weight (with the exception of the yo-yo premiership clubs) Its clear the EFL are destroying clubs and livelihoods and it’s time they went under the microscope. Would be nice to be seen as a groundbreaking club but it’s a thankless expensive task. First through the wall always gets bloodied.
  22. Gold framed blue shield, with white and a big yellow eyed owl in the middle. No you are right, barely any similarities.
  23. For me, the current badge is just far too detailed. It feels too close to Oldham (the other club with an Owl on their badge). It also really struggles on a striped shirt, where as on the solid blue shirt it worked better. We are "The Owls"! It should be a simple stylish Owl. Same as Swansea & Wolves. Wolves are the best example. Night games, orange flames and darkness, how good have they looked on tv coming out at the start. Our Owl video we have that swoops in is amazing. We should own being The Owls more and build the club atmosphere around it.
