    Atdhe on the new £50 note

    I suppose that would be quite noteworthy.

    Nuhiu, Palmer, Pelupessy, Dawson et al

    Well then you've won at life. There's simply no higher accolade a man can hope to achieve, is there?

    Brexit

    If we move, do we get an extra £350m to spend on the club's medical department?

    João Does He Do It?

    Dropping the likes of Forestieri and Hutchinson to the bench following the Brentford game was a massive call which could have backfired quite spectacularly had results not picked up. Thankfully it's so far paid dividends in terms of our performances and will hopefully have a much greater long-term impact on the mentality of the squad as a whole. Young players now know that if they impress the manager, there's a route into the first team waiting for them, whilst experienced players know that if their performances drop or they don't carry out the manager's instructions to the letter, then he's not afraid to play somebody else in their stead. Hopefully the whole squad buy into what Luhukay's doing, as it could be the blueprint for a bright future.

    Dawson

    If you repeat it enough times then it becomes true, apparently. Westwood was great for us, but he's not played since early December and his form leading up to that point was hardly his best, was it? Who's to say that he's still the same 'keeper he was during his peak years? Regardless of that, the fact remains that Dawson has equipped himself very well in his appearances for us so far: he's looked a bit shaky on some crosses, but has also pulled off some great saves and kept us in games when a weaker 'keeper would have seen us fall behind. There's not a single game we can point to and say his performance cost us points, and yet we've still got fans harking back to the days of Westwood. But let's be honest: Dawson will cost us points at some point - all 'keepers do - it's the nature of the position. And you can already imagine the threads that will appear, and probably predict the names of those who'll post them...

    He'd have banged in a hattrick against Hull for starters. Plus some other made-up drivel...

    João Does He Do It?

    It's a much stricter regime under Luhukay...I've not managed to crack his password just yet! Plus, I'm lazy.

    The talk of moving to Weedon Street...

    How is our supporter base holding back the club?

    João Does He Do It?

    All the physical and technical attributes, but perhaps not all the mental attributes? Maybe that's too harsh, but Luhukay;s comments about needing to push himself in training suggest he's not quite developed that determination that all the very best players need. Something's certainly clicking for him under Luhukay, though - hopefully he can be the manager to help him realise his potential.

    João Does He Do It?

    The return to form of some of our forgotten men since Luhukay took over has been widely noted, but the way that Lucas João has discovered his shooting boots under his guidance surely warrants a bit more attention. He's averaging a goal for every 149 minutes of Championship football since Luhukay arrived in January and is scoring at an even more impressive rate of a goal every 91 minutes so far this season. When you consider that this is a striker who didn't score at all in his ten league appearances for us in 2016/17 and had averaged a goal every 305 minutes in his debut season for us, the turnaround in his form under Luhukay has been tremendous. I'm not sure what happened to make him fall out of favour under Carvalhal, but to think that he only played João for a grand total of 138 paltry minutes of league football before he lost his job last December is quite baffling, really. If the manager's recent comments are anything to go by, he seems to believe there may be even more to come from João: "If he wants to be in the starting line-up, he has to work very hard in training day after day. It's as simple as that." But for now, all credit must go to both Luhukay and João himself for the way things are turning around for him at Wednesday, and long may it continue.

    Did he just have knee surgery as a way to pass the time, then?

    No, they gather at the Earth's edge.

    Matias is creating an account as we speak. Should be verified in two weeks.
  15. Have you got any stats to back that up?
