  1. Not much to say Really we are 10 points behind where we were two years ago. There are only 27 points left where we can catch up but that's pie in the sky there are far more opportunities to fall further behind including the next two games. Lose both of those and we are 16 points behind. Just Awful.
  2. Another loss and 8 points behind two years ago the chances of making the playoffs are all but over. Something has to change. Jos really needs to be heading home for Christmas tonight. The trouble is if we don't have a replacement for Jos ready to go we know what happens if we don't. It has to be someone who can come in quickly and hit the ground running.
  3. Adam could be responsible for the financial saving of us if he leaves for big Money in January. Having said that I have no idea whether income in January from player sales counts immediately as far as Profit and Sustainability rules go regarding our current position. I am sure that one of us will have the definitive answer.
  4. Our Yellow bar for this seasons points tally is kissing the relegation form line with our points gained flatlining things don't look encouraging. That said, yesterdays performance was good in parts however our woeful defending once again gifted an undeserved win to our opponents. As I have said before all our opponents have to do is run directly at our defenders and they will win the ball. Frank must have thought that it couldn't be that easy and gave us some respect allowing us to score a really good goal from a flowing move which was finished with aplomb by Adam Reach. It was only after the goal that Frank let his players run directly at us and they got their reward of two goals from our schoolboy defence, horrible to see yet again. Although we had two gilt edge chances in the second half we record yet another loss. This simply can't be allowed to continue for much longer can it?
  5. He was at the first three matches for sure with Franks Dad.
  6. Frank Lampard won't have Uncle 'Arry to advise him on Saturday. Might help us, but then again...….
  7. Come On a hat trick against Gibraltar under 19s just do the maths. Gib total population 30,000 same size as Dronfield approx. Half Women that leaves 15,000 only 1000 of whom are between 16 and 19 about 150 of whom have ever played football about 40 alright at it about one quite good. This simply doesn't signify. I've nothing against Gibraltar I lived there for a long time my wife is from there and I love the place but you could put the entire rock in Dronfield just to put it into perspective.

    Heading For The Trapdoor

    Yes but we all know that it isn't going to happen before Friday.
  9. Well we are still five points behind where we were two years ago, so theoretically we can catch it up between games 33 and 39 when we only scored 5 points, but, here's the rub, we simply fail to be able to play even the simplest of passes, without giving the ball away. Once Norwich's manager realised that all you have to do is run at a Wednesday player, almost any Wednesday player, he will panic and give you the ball, the game was up. The old adage, if you keep doing the same things you will get the same results, is pertinent. If we play this way on Friday it'll be a bloodbath. Watching Wednesday right now is scarier than any horror movie. You can at least watch a horror movie through your fingers, yesterday at Hillsborough I simply couldn't look. The Hillsborough Hush was deafening, the squirming in seats was frantic, the absence of negative comment said it all, we've started to expect it. It’s got to be different on Friday or I ultimately fear for our League status. I don't care who plays on Friday the game plan has to change radically because none of the players seem comfortable with the current game plan, assuming that there is one, but I may be wrong. We have simply got to win on Friday. If we don’t, we need a manager to rescue our season and keep us in this division, because now we are heading for the trapdoor in the bottom.

  11. I say "unthinkable" because most Owls wouldn't like to think that we will lose United, not that it is not likely to lose another three in a row. It is entirely possible the way we are playing right now.
  12. If, it's unthinkable I know, that we lose the next two we are right on the relegation form line and we will have lost at Bramall Lane. Our proclivity to give the ball away cheaply when in good possession, and not fully complete some challenges, coupled with glaring errors, such as Palmer's amazing miss, continue to hinder any progress. We can and must do better, we are not yet in crisis but unless we get a grip soon we are in danger of bringing one upon ourselves. Lets just buck up and get back to winning ways.

  14. I'm sorry Ethel I have to disagree on this point. We simply didn't compete. We put in and won many tackles and instead of following up and taking possession of the ball a number of players simply stood and admired their work and let the ball be picked up by a QPR player. It happened time and again. It wouldn't have been so bad if it was just one individual doing it but it was three or four. Joao, Hector, Reach, Bannan and to a lesser extent Onomah. I share your thoughts on overreaction as I tend to look for the positives but there was little in that performance to be upbeat about. I had hoped that Baker would become a great but I didn't see any evidence that he will on Tuesday's showing..
