  1. Good luck next season, and personally I like the baggies, thanks for Carlton
  2. We are safe, the timescale before the new season starts doesnt allow for a points deduction due to the appeals process, 21 days for appeal to be put in and then 14 days for appeal to be set up. If any deduction is put forward then it will be next season. I personally believe we may have broken EFL rules but have complied with Hmrc laws etc, hence the long debate in the decision making process.
  3. Aston villa fan at 9, after watching them win the European Cup. Wednesday fan by the age of ten after going to Hillsborough for the first time, although I was born in Hillsborough so no real doubt where my loyalties would end up
  4. Don't forget the short lived inter toto Cup route into the Uefa Cup
  5. Would have been like us sacking our manager for not playing Young Hirst, despite what happened he was not ready for the Championship at that time and I doubt that young lad is either. I recall the young Dozell played for Ipswich against us a couple of years ago, not heard anything of him since.
  6. RIP Big Jack The manager of the first Wednesday team I saw.
  7. In a very average championship a fit Wickham for a season woukd be the difference between bottom half and a play off push. Since we lost Fletcher in the New Year we looked toothless and abject with no focal point to our attacking play. Since the restart we have looked better and in fairness could well have six points gained rather than four. I feel that with a fully fit Fletcher or Wickham we would have been able to pick up at least six or seven more points in that terrible run and still be in play off contention, even with the EFL charge hanging over us.
  8. So get relegated and a double whammy by starting next season on - 12, but stay up and you get away with it. EFL not fit for purpose, feel for the Wigan fans as pointed out this smells fishy with a recent takeover.
  9. Personally only one iconic shirt number for any team and that's no 9. The goalscoring centreforward and arguably the pivitol point of a teams attack.. If shirt numbers are iconic for any other reason its a modern thing since squad numbers rather than 1-11 on the pitch and down to the player being a great.
  10. Totally vindicated and given 12 extra points due to the EFL causing unnecessary damage to the team
  11. Agree, we should have paid what was need to sigh Houriane, we were in desperate need of a midfielder not two more strikers.
  12. Before the play off final too, since DC has come to the club the recruitment has been shambolic, I don't deny money has been spent and a positive case can be made for most signings Even though some have the dubious distinction of being some of our worst in hindsight. It's just that so many players have come and gone or still here and they don't fit a system to get the best out of them.
  13. Sadly no, I see no indication under the current manager where he fits into the formation. Part of the issue we have had over the last few seasons is players not fitting the formation. Millions have been wasted because of this.
  14. Not the best but most memorable is the 4-4 League Cup game vs Chelsea. As a young lad I went through the whole range of emotions watching Wednesday that night.
