    All Wednesday

    I'm glad I saw this if for little else than seeing the footage of that little lad going to his first game with his dad. When that little face lit up in awe... that is a face we all know. Brought back memories I'm sure in all of us of the first time we ever saw that pitch the inside of the stadium for the first time and the masses of humanity filling it. Wonderful emotion capturing shot that captures that moment
  6. Wednesday 1 - 0 Wigan Athletic Fletcher 63 Clean sheet and 3 points. Home win against a side who had just battered Villa.. Who was your top Owl today? And how did the rest fair? Time to get those scores on the doors! How? Just how? WTF?! Horrific. My eyes! My eyes! Bad - Lads had a stinker Below par - Not at his best today Bare minimum- Level no one should fall below Standard- Lads done ok today. Good - Played well Terrific - Made a good impact on the game Absolutley bloody marvelous - Showed why we pay all our lads £40pw I've just spaffed and will probably never see another performance like that in my life time. But ill be able to say I was here this day and witnessed it.

    Who would like this back.

    Players clattering down the tunnel like Gladiators ,the roar of the crowd going up. Thats what you want. None of this fake sportsmanship and shaking hands with all the opposition cobblers. Entrance music. Meh. Could consign it to the bin with squad numbers for me. If they ever introduce goal music though I genuinly don't know what I'd do. It'd tip me over the sanity line. I'd become a lunatic if that nonsense ever descended on us

    'Twas the match before Brucemas*

    Second reading this morning. Enjoyed it again. More of this sort of thing.
  9. "It's snowing out Sir" "I should hope it is in this Council Tax band" "Pardon Sir?" "Snow in Winter, birds singing in summer. Where did you think the money went?" "Well, chopping down trees according to the Telegraph every week" "No, no. It goes towards making things right and proper. You think they get this in the rougher ends of town Stubbs?" "I'm sure it's more to do with altitude Sir" "Nonsense. You go and find the nearest flat roofed pubs Stubbs and I'll guarantee they've had nothing more than an icy sleet" "Really Sir" "Yes really. Now stick another log on the fire. Have you got the notes for this weeks Match day thread?" "Yes Sir, I've got a copy of the Chairmans statement, that seems to be the main talking point of the week." "No no, we've done all that in the other thread." "But people will want to know-" "There's nothing to know Stubbs. It's old news. We're up the creak without promotion. Well. Up the creek in terms of signing anyone. But it's not as if that's breaking news is it." "Well no, I suppose not." "No. We haven't a pot to wazz in" "Wazz Sir?" "I'm finding alternatives Stubbs. I refuse to let the swear filter defeat me" "I see" "So anyway. The Chairman is loaded but can't spend it, so in real terms we are skint." "Shame the club isn't allowed to gamble Sir" "Whys that?" "Because if they could then they might be worth staking the entire budget on Steven Fletcher to bag tomorrow. He's notched 6 goals in his last 6 starts against Wigan." "Really?" "Yes Sir. Loves playing against them" "Probably be rested tomorrow then!" WEDNESDAY - V - WIGAN ATH. HILLSBOROUGH KICK OFF :15:00 REFEREE : A.Chump "Well he's got the all clear , fit as a fiddle. So if he does start that's where you put your money. 5/1 on for first goal scorer. " "What other news?" " Sheffield Wednesday Joao is back and fit and raring to go. There's a chance he might start if Wednesday stay with the diamond formation they used at Luton., Sam Hutchinson and Keiren Westwood are almost guaranteed to be put back into the starting XI" "Good" "Joey Pelupessy will be another week with an ankle strain." "First time he's really been out since he arrived isn't it. He's been fit as a fiddle since he came here. Funny that there's not hundreds of threads from the conspiracy lot though accusing the club of faking his injury. Funny it's only fan favourites who have to feign knocks" "Moving on Sir.....Wigan boss Paul Cook could name the same XI that started the 3-0 win over Aston Villa last week." "3-0?" "Yes Sir." "How did I miss that?" "You were blind drunk in Hull Sir, trying to take on all comers in the Old Black Boy" "Oh yes. That's right. Hull. Bloody hell, don't remind me. Here , I thought Dean Smith was the top manager blah blah blah. Hows he got battered by Wigan at home?" "To be honest Sir Wigan haven't really had a kind run. They've been on a losing streak, but it has to be said that during that run they've played some of the top sides in the division in terms of form and squad strength. West Brom, Swansea, and Sheff-" "Stubbs!" " James Vaughan, Nathan Byrne and Callum McManaman are among those pushing for recalls to the starting line-up. Darron Gibson will be assessed after missing the last two games due to a thigh problem and striker Nick Powell (calf) is not ready to return." "Powell? Wasn't he the next big thing at one time" "Possibly Sir, there's hundreds of 'next big things isn't there.." "I suppose there is" Match facts Sheffield Wednesday have won three of their four home games against Wigan in all competitions (L1). None of the nine meetings between Sheffield Wednesday and Wigan in all competitions have ended as a draw (five Wednesday wins, four Wigan wins). In their 3-0 defeat by Hull City in their last Championship match, Sheffield Wednesday managed just three efforts at goal - their fewest in a league match since April 2018 (two against Wolves). "Good God! That's approaching the same form as the last Days of Carvalhal! I tell you what. I really can't wait for Brucie to get here. Training sessions and what not is all well and good, but you really want the gaffer in there don't you. Someone with a bit of star quality." "Doesn't necessarily mean the player will shoot more though Sir. I mean once they're over the white line there's it's up to them" "Yes I know that. But I just think that it's all a bit of a no-mans land at the minute. Nothing against the new chaps. But you want the Bigman in place. Give everyone a boost." Wigan have lost 10 away games in the Championship this season, while only Crawley (11) have lost more in the English Football League in 2018-19. If Wednesday keep a clean sheet on Saturday it will be just their 4th of the season Four of Wigan's last eight Championship goals have been penalties, scored by three different players (two by Joe Garner, one apiece by Will Grigg and James Vaughan). "Well then, if we don't fanny about at the back then it shouldn't be a problem should it" "If Sir. If" "Indeed Stubbs. If... If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, (You are probably Cameron Dawson) If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too; (You are probably Morgan Fox) If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies, (You are probably Fernando Forestieri) Or being hated, don’t give way to hating, And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise: (You are probably Atdhe Nuhiu) If you can dream—and not make dreams your master; If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim; (You are probably Lucas Joao) If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same; (You are probably Tom Lees) If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, (You are probably Steve Agnew) Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools: (You are probably Lee Bullen) If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-throw, (You are probably Dejphon Chansiri) And lose, and start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss; (You are probably a clapper) If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone, (You probably bought a 3 year season ticket) And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’ (You've probably never left on 85 minutes) If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch, (That's me isn't it Stubbs?) If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you, If all men count with you, but none too much; (You're probably Gary Hooper) If you can fill the unforgiving minute... (You are probably the bloody fourth official!) Yours is this City boys and everything that’s in it, And—which is more—you’re Wednesday, my sons! COME ON WEDNESDAY!

    2nd half - 442

    Well we can say mighty Wigan as a line, but we we've not been in the top flight ourselves for nigh 20 years. It's about the players on the pitch isn't it. We played two up top at their place in an open contest. ...and lost. Swings and roundabouts. I'll take the win and the clean sheet.

    2nd half - 442

    I think it was the right move. Not sure I'd start with it because , as you say, it can open things up...at either end... Good switch to have though once we had grabbed control of the game. Good game plan today well executed.

    Been one of our best this season that for sure.

    Agree totally. We really should have pushed it to sign up the evil twin on a free. Absolute farce transfer policy that we didn't.

    Bit harsh on Fletcher old cork. Not the fastest, but then again we're not blessed with much of that as a squad. His hold and link play is excellent ,IMO, get Reach bombing on in that attacking role and Matias and Boyd making up the numbers when the balls down the opposite flank and I think we've got enough. We rarely score more than two in a game so suspect we're trying to ensure we don't lose the centre of midfield against Wigans 4-5-1 We could play a second or third striker....but if you lose the midfield they might not get the service...

    I think intent is as important as the number of strikers on the park. We get out there and get at them then that side is certainly capable.

    Sorry to hear about the leg Flying. Hope you're on the mend.
  19. · Westwood fit again · Hutchinson strain but fine for Saturday · Pelupessy out with an ankle ligament niggle. Probably another week. · Joao fit , well and available · Fernando – Doing well but Saturday is too soon. Hamstring. Don't want to risk. Chelsea game? We’ll see how he progresses. · Hooper – Doing well. Running now. Will be back in 3 to 4 weeks proper training. · Lee- Set back. Can’t put a timescale on it. · Abdi needs games and will play for U23’s next week. If he plays again for the first team…it’ll be in the hands of the players · Hector – We thought Michael did well at the base of midfield. But we won’t commit to saying where he’s going to play in future · Wigan – Are a team who’ve been promoted. A sticky patch recently but they got a great win at Villa and we expect a very good game. We’ve analysed them and are looking forward to it. · Hull – We’ve address that. I think we got a reaction in the Cup game from the players. If we play with the intensity that we can, and that they show in training, I don’t see why we can’t put in a good performance and get three points. · Bruce - The conversations we’ve had have mainly been positive. Apart from the Hull game! · Neeskens Kabano – Anything to do with January and transfers are nothing to do with me they’re to do with Steve and the Chairman. It’s not my remit. Of course having pace improves clubs chances of attacking. · Transfers out – We want to keep the group together. · Embargo – Not my remit. Myself , Lee and the other staff are here for the football side. Everything to do with that is for the Chairman and Steve. · Time – We need time to turn it around and to get the team playing how we want them to play. But the players are picking up bits all the time. Also we will need a bit of luck. · Demands – Steve Bruce will insist on intensity and tempo and speed

    Be a giggle if he came back and bagged goals for fun.

    Wigan Press conference breakdown

    Thing is corky when it's plain speaking and what not then people are having to work a lot harder to whip them into their conspiracy theories.

    DC and Hillsborough

    We can do up the West Stand. Doesn't mean away teams will fill it and put the money back over the counter. Truth is unless it'd all about getting to the premier league so all the rules are hurled put of the window. It all starts and ends on the park. Sell high, buy low, make money on players passing through while climbing the table. Problem is. ..were historically not very good at that in recent years.
