  1. Take comfort from the fact that we are already 12 points clear of last year.
  2. 2 points dropped tonight. Never a pen but it is what you get for not finishing teams off. The team got weaker once Murphy came on. Forest next I have not a clue how that will go but can't see a win with just Fletch getting the goals. What has happened to Reach's screamers?
  3. I can't see that Mr C wouldn't have taken legal advise before making this statement. His brief must therefore believe that there is a prime facie case to substantiate the statement.
  4. We are 6 points and 9 places better off than at this point last season. and we all would like us to be top 6 if not top 2 at the end of the season. It's easy to look at the last two games and wonder whether we are not good enough, and it's easy to blame it all on Westwood with three dropped crosses costing goals. Gary Monk reckons we could as easily be sat here with 6 points from the last two as the 1 point that we have. I have some sympathy with his point of view because we have looked very good as an attacking force at times without being incisive enough to put sufficient chances away. How FF doesn't start I don't know, he is still head and shoulders our best player wherever he plays. Fletch is wonderfully combative and runs his legs off but somehow is ineffective as a primary striker. Good though he is, he isn't your 20 goal per season type of guy. Adam reach showed exactly what he can do when he came on and opened Swansea up for our first goal. Of late that element has been missing from his game and needs restoring in full measure to avoid another also ran season. It is all fine margins of course, I'm just hoping that the Manager and Players can truly get their act together during this International break, as its non-stop now until March. We need a positive run starting from the away game at West Brom, and continuing through Christmas and the winter into March, by which time the automatics will be down to 3 or 4 and the top six down to 8 or 9. We need to be there amongst it, lets hope our team can find that magic mix and start with a convincing away win in the West Midlands. It's the International Break we must come back stronger and be winners once more.
  5. We are 6 points and 10 places better off than at this point last season, notwithstanding the result of todays lunchtime fixture between Cardiff and Bristol City which could see us drop a place to 8th. It's easy to look at the last two games and wonder whether we are not good enough, and it's easy to blame it all on Westwood with three dropped crosses costing goals.

  6. whats weak about it ?...…. It's...……. every week.
  7. It's just that every time that we have the chance to really make a move we snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. It's Groundhog Day.
  8. Nothing to say after the Blackburn game, lost for words.
  9. There's a new law in football that you may have overlooked. New Law If whilst playing for a Sheffield Wednesday team, a player makes contact with the ball or an opponent, a free kick shall be awarded.
  10. I posted the above so you don't have to remember. We ended October in 14th place.
  11. At the end of October we are 5 points and 9 places better off than last season. Our points total puts us bang on the playoff line. The competitive nature of the division this season is intense with just 6 points separating the top 12 teams. 6 points from the next two would be fantastic and have us challenging for automatic places as we go into the pre Christmas International break. it won't be easy though Blackburn are hard to beat this time round and Swansea will expect to be in the shake-up at the end of the season. If we are genuine contenders we need to be beating Blackburn and taking points of Swansea. Beating Swansea will be even better.
