  1. For some reason theyv'e cut from the video lawrie maddens robust challenge on peter reid about 2 minutes into the video that saw him fly several yards towards the sourh stand to resounding cheers.
  2. Crap fabric, crap garment design, crap garment construction =crap shirt. and that’s before considering the lack of stripes!
  3. Yeah because Shilton and Seaman were famously crap...
  4. Attacking 4-4-2 Hodge Sterland Worthington Pearson Lyons Palmer Sheridan Di Canio Waddle Hirst Chapman Subs Curran, Bannister, Walker, Carbone, Marwood, Anderson, JJ Manager Big Jack Trainer Tony Toms
  5. Transformational...from top 6 to bottom 6. Ageing injury prone players, poor manager, clueless owner and disastrous finances say that this transformation is not going to be reversed easily.
  6. Liked Hamshaw but what a pudding turning down ManU and Fergie. opportunity only knocks once
  7. Jos the joker...go now

    Well thank fizz for that...I was starting to get a bit worried that someone without a clue might be making the decisions!!
  8. Jos the joker...go now

    You could give this guy as long as you want but he is no Ron Atkinson. Atkinson actually did keep Eustace’s team in Div 1 when he was bought in to rescue a season, but if you need to compare him to earlier Wednesday managers then Chris Turnee and Alan Irvine are the ones to pick. They came into similar if not worse situations, they had better records than this guy and were both blöödy useless.

    Everyone makes bad decisions, the trick is to quickly bury them and move on...what makes a bad decision a disastrous decision is the unwillingness to accept it and a determination to persist with it in the hope that it will come right. a blind man on a charging horse can see that Jos is a bad decision.
  10. Wednesday had a choice to make once the offers had came in from the PL teams...sell the lad or contract with him to pay him a similar wage. Not ideal, and both had +/- but ultimately it was just a decision to be made. For reasons unknown they decided on the much less obvious alternative value destroying policy of don't sell him, don't give him the similar contract and then to top it off and to add a bit or moral indefensibility to the commercial idiocy, refuse to continue to develop and play a young lad learning his trade.
  11. A lot of discussion in the last 12 month about Wolves, well they filed their accounts to May 31st yesterday. Wolves' loss for 2016/17 of £20.830m, which was almost identical to Wednesday's figure of £20.765m for the same period. That means that for the last 3 years Wolves had a cumulative loss of £10.8m, compared with Wednesday's £35.1m. Assuming that the two clubs have similar disallowed costs for infrastruture depreciation, youth development etc for the FFP calculation of the (£8m was suggested in this thread), then their maximum potential loss in 17/18 would be approx £34m vs. Wednesdays's maximum of £16.5m.
  12. I wouldn't worry, I'm sure he has someone to run the bath for him...
  13. Well at least you’ve noticed something...they can’t win.
  14. Exactly, the preferred option was Club 1867 which was quick cash that could also be taken into 17/18 P&L; rightly that particular scheme failed miserably so 2nd best option is pawning future year's ticket revenue to just get cash quick...
  15. How can the Directors justify promoting the sale of up to 5 years season tickets to the supporters when they in the Accounts acknowlege "a material uncertainty exists which may cast significant doubt over the company's ability to continue as a going concern and, therefore that it may be unable to realise it assets and discharge is liabilities in the normal course of business" ? Fans have a significant risk of not being able to get their money back or receive what they have paid for.
