    Lees why...

    I don’t mind centre halves playing from the back, but if you get into a situation like Lees did for the second goal, just smash the f*cking ball into row X of the North and re-group. Never, never, ever play a blind pass back towards your own goal, f*cking ever. Surely, a 27 year old professional central half doesn’t need telling that?

    Nuhiu, Palmer, Pelupessy, Dawson et al

    Ever thought that people might just share a different opinion than you, and when they spend £40 a game they have every right to express that opinion? Players don't get criticism if they are doing the business. Scapegoating? Isn't that blaming one person for everything that goes wrong? I've never once seen a post like that on here. Not one. Players might get singled out for a particular poor performance, missed a sitter, awful defending, etc. but that's normal for sport and not scapegoating. I'd also be amazed if there was ONE genuine Wednesday fan out there that actually wanted a player to play badly so they could rant and rave about them.
  3. And I'll take that. We, as fans, just need to be a bit patient and take this in mind.

    Clare Fee

    1. Hearts boss says the fee could have been in the region of £750k, but it's complicated. Absolutely no guarantee we would have got that - or anywhere near it had he gone to an English club. 2. Players out of contract, we can't force them to move where is best for us. Nor can we force them to re-sign with us. 3. Hirst at £3.5m? Where did you get that from? I assume you're talking about David's proposed move to Man Utd all those years ago, not his son who is warming the bench in the second division in Belgium? I'm actually quite pleased we got £150k for Clare, who was that sought after he's ended up playing Scottish football after playing just 5, yes 5, games for us, and he's not even a guaranteed starter for Hearts. As for Hirst, would love to have seen him develop here, but he chose to leave.

    Agree with most of that. On the final point however, I suspect if someones pay day is coming to an end and they desperately want a new one, they'll work harder and most probably produce their better work. That goes for people in any walk of life. I know if I was on a fixed term contract that was reviewed towards the end, I'd be breaking my balls the last few months if I wanted an extension to the contract. Footballers will, even subconsciously, be the same. I don't believe a professional - whatever the job - would put in average work upon receiving a new contract, but naturally you might go back into a lull due to the security you've just been rewarded with. That's just human nature.

    With the number of attackers at the club, and the financial constraints, allowing him to leave would have been the obvious thing to do - and had he not hit that purple patch, that is exactly what would have happened. Hopefully, the club will learn from this and offer contract renewals/extensions based on their contribution at the football club, not the last dozen games of a season when the player is desperately trying to earn a contract.

    Young, inexperienced players are going to make mistakes and be inconsistent. Don't be surprised when it happens!

    Guess that's down to what you compare it to. Glasgow has come a long way in the last 20/30 years, a blueprint on how to re-generate a former industrial wasteland. You missed the West Coast out by the way - up there with the South Coast of England for the finest coastal places in the UK. Still, if I was Clare I'd have chosen to stay with Wednesday!

    If you're that concerned, I'd just get a new job pal!

    Strange that you're living in fear at the thought of living in Scotland - who plans on forcing you to live up here?

    Having been to both stadiums, I know which one I’d rather be as an away fan. Hibs make throwing urine & flares seem like small time!!

    You have Hearts and Hibs the wrong way round. But I know you’re just trying to wind EdinburghOwl up!!

    Bannan & Joao re-mewing their contracts is a bigger deal than Clare, and the money involved with those 2 will have been far greater than Clare. Maybe we offered Clare what we thought he was worth and he didn’t agree? Paying more than you think people are worth is what brings financial problems.

    Strange decision to move to the SPL when he would have got games with Wednesday. But, obviously Hearts are a big club up here, play in a nice part of the world, are currently sat top of the league, will compete for silverwear, and Clare could be part of this - making a name for himself and earning a bigger move in future. It’s not quite Stenhousemuir!!

    Almen Abdi is BACK

    Probably because Lee and Hooper have made massive contributions to SWFC over their time here and have earned the right to be given a chance. Abdi, despite being through no fault of his own, hasn't and would make a big difference if the decision was mine also.
