  1. I’m just glad it’s all over for another season. That pressure in the last 15 minutes... horrible. I said before last night that 4 points from the next 2 gives us a small chance of a late push, so beat derby on Saturday (although it’s a ground I’ve never seen us win) and who knows.
  2. I will be at work today in body only. My mind will be preoccupied with tonight’s game, so not a lot of work will be done! I am reyt nervous. I hate derby days.
  3. He has a really short time now to prove his fitness - he can’t afford anymore setbacks otherwise he will be released in my opinion. Time is ticking. I will leave it to Bruce to make a decision about him in the summer as I genuinely don’t have a clue what I would do.
  4. Usually 2nd phase on the second day. So Tuesday pm.
  5. I’m just sick to death of us hard working, loyal fans being asked YET again to put our hand in our pockets. We've been bent over time and time again - and accepted it, through nothing more than blind loyalty. Highest tickets in the league, most expensive ST’s, ridiculous pricing of merchandise etc and now this. Yet we accept it - through gritted teeth at times, all because of the club we love and want to do well. And then, amazingly, to cap it off, if my memory serves me correctly- I’m pretty sure DC said our money doesn’t cover practically anything at our football club. Cant wait to see how much ST’s are in the next month or so. An absolute shambles if you ask me.
  6. Makes no difference to FFP I don’t think, but aren’t Early bird Season tickets due for release very shortly? If Bannan, Reach, Westwood etc are all sold, we’re languishing in the bottom half and an embargo potentially looming surely he can’t/won’t put the prices up? I just cant see how us fans are yet again being asked to stump up more cash. We’ve done our bit and then some. When does it end ffs?!
  7. Lets be reyt - we aren't (or never have been) playoff contenders this season. The fact we wasted half of season is the reason for that. We will probably settle now in upper mid - table, 11/12th or so would be my guess come May. Who is here on the 1st Feb and next summer will be key. I suspect we are going to need to be ruthless - e.g Lee / Hooper etc.
  8. Two wins and two draws over Xmas / NY. Considering where we were - I would say that's a decent return. Rest a few of the first team next weekend - then go again! Hopefully might have a manager by then.
  9. Still my favourite away day from the past 5 years or so. This video just finished it up nicely!
  10. Minging to throw it away at the death. But, 7 points from 9 over Xmas, considering we have been terrible all season, is a decent return and lets be honest, we would have all taken that with a winnable game at home to Brum on NYD.
  11. And is it usual case for the court hearing to happen the next day? Could it go on for longer? I genuinely don’t have a clue, just interested to see what’s gonna happen. Pretty crap to see SWFC plastered all over the internet with the words “Sheffield Wednesday” and “arrest warrant” - doesn’t look good from where I am!
  12. Just in regards point 1 - if/when the police arrest him for not attending, does that mean he could be locked up until he is put before the court?
  13. I can’t help feel that this is the most disgusting statement he has ever made! A total and complete disregard for fans continuing being told that our money is needed for him to turn round and say that. Unbelievable.
  14. Just back to our hotel in Swansea. No way by the worst performance this year - two guilt edge defensive errors. We deserved at least a draw, Swansea were no better than us. Where we go from here, I have no idea, but jos in the press conference suggests to me he is a man under serious pressure.
  15. Give the poor lad a break. We were all raving over him when he signed - finally we had a ball playing centre half that we all wanted. His confidence has never been the same since Sheff Utd took the wee wee that dark day at Hillsborough and since then he’s been injured. I certainly haven’t given up hope yet with him.
