    New kit designs

    What's Almen Abdi got to do with it?

    The future of Joao

    I agree. A young player like João, whose value could soar if he hits a purple patch (£6m for Gary Madine, anyone?), would be a massive loss to our club if he walked away on a free transfer. He's shown the potential to be a real threat at this level, looked to be finding good form under Luhukay, and I hope the club will be tying him down to a new contract over the summer.

    George Hirst to sign for Real Betis

    This is the least believable outgoing player rumour since my Nuhiu to Saint-Etienne April Fools... Silly penguin!

    25 years ago tonight !

    It hurt like hell when I was eight. It hurts even more looking back, knowing that at no point in the next quarter of a century would Wednesday even come close to scaling those heights again.

    Clare rejected us??

    It's that time of the week again, is it?

    Harrison Reed

    Apparently so. I don't remember ever seeing him play, either...
  7. It'll be a shame to see two promising prospects walk away, but if the club have offered them decent terms (which we're led to believe they have, at least in the case of Hirst), there's little more they can do. Neither will make or break our summer transfer window - they only have six Championship appearances between them, so they're hardly central to our squad, and if they'd been on the books of another Championship team and were our first two signings of the summer, I doubt we'd all be jumping for joy. In order to have a successful transfer window, we have far bigger fish to fry. It would be great if all of our promising young players wanted to stay and develop their careers here, but that's not the way it goes in modern football, unfortunately.

    Is it true?

    Coming soon to football stadiums near you: Sheffield United star in 'Fear and Capitulation in Bramall Lane'.

    Butterfield returns to Derby.

    I see you've read Carlos' book, then.

    Butterfield returns to Derby.

    If Butterfield were the heartbeat of our team, we might need a defibrillator.

    Westwood Going

    Any idea where he's supposedly going?

    A year ago today

    To be fair, it would have been a bit daft to leave him on the pitch with an injury.

    What if it’s a 1 Stripe!?

    Swap the blue and white around and it might look better? But then I suppose that depends on whether you think Wednesday play in blue shirts with white stripes, or white shirts with blue stripes, doesn't it?

    Adam Reach - at last a player takes responsibility

    It doesn't. This thread is based on the OP's interpretation of what Reach means by 'complacent', but unless he's also commenting on the fitness levels of the Reading players as well as our medical staff, manager and chairman, I doubt that's all he's getting at. It seems to me he's making a wider point about the mentality of the entire club going into last season on the back of an unsuccessful playoff campaign. “It was not just us (who were complacent),” stressed Reach, who was named the Owls Player of the Year. “It’s teams like Reading who came a penalty shoot-out away from reaching the Premier League and then they were on the brink of relegation. “Every department of this club, whether it’s the players, the medical staff or higher up, need to look at themselves after every season whether it’s a positive or negative season and really think about how they can improve.”
