  1. After being cheated out of two points at Cardiff on Friday night we sit 8th in the table two positions below where we were at this time last season but one point better off. After the twelfth game last season we only took one point from the next six games and it spelled the end for Jos. Let's hope that there is no repeat of that. This time around we look much better in possession and quite a lot stronger in defence so I think we can push on. Two home wins if we can avoid, what looks like a refereeing conspiracy against us. I don't actually believe there is such a conspiracy but I can understand those who think there might be. Lets face it we are only one win off second place right now and a positive run will see us in amongst the automatic promotion candidates.
  2. You can bet your bottom dollar that parachute payments will be stopped the season that we next get relegated from the Prem. Mind you, I'm unlikely to live that long so it won't bother me.
  3. You've not been on an after match tram have you. Nobody can move, the conductor can't take the fares, you are trapped in position till you get to Commercial Street.
  4. This was the one and only time that I went to Millmoor, enough said.
  5. We are three points better off than at this time last season and just three points off top. We have got here without being particularly convincing. With a bit of luck we will improve after the International Break. If we do there is reason for optimism. Our game away at Cardiff is massive for two reasons. A win takes us to the very top of the League for a few hours at least. A loss however sees us level with last season and hoping that we don't flatline as we did at the same point last season. Sorry for the late post this game but it was due to the sites certificate problem.
  6. This is published weekly in the Graph Thread and once per Month the data behind this chart including each fixture and result.
  7. They say that you can tell how the league is going to pan out after 10 games but this season it's still unclear. If we had won as we should have with the chances that we had, and the denied penalty, we would be in third place this morning but we sit in 9th instead. I hope that we have a positive run rather than the negative one of last season. If we can keep on going the way that we are until January and make a telling signing or two in January and take the opportunity to earn some transfer revenues, we can still be in the mix at the end of the season. If we leave things as they are I am not so confident although who knows in what form or attitude FF will be in if or when he returns after the International Break.
  8. That Everton game was the only time I left and went home at Half-Time. Everton were superior in every way nevertheless the Owls fans across the stadium were singing loudly "One Sheffield Wednesday, there's only one Sheffield Wednesday" For that reason alone it can't be on anyone's worst Owls match.
  9. I agree. Everything went south after game 12, after which we only got a single point from 6 games, losing four in a row in the process.
  10. I can't remember it at all Sorry Keef , I know there has been some rubbish humour in this thread but your post perplexes me.... totally. After a lifetime of laughter never since I was at a Ardal O'Hanlon stand up in Birmingham in 1996 have I been left so bemused,
  11. What is curious is that there have been very few games between those top thirteen. Things will start to become clearer once more of them have played one another. Essentially If we win our games against the likes of Leeds, West Brom and Forrest we will open a significant gap. the same of course is true for any of the top group winning consistently against those in that group. Time will tell but I expect that the league will be in shape by Christmas and the direction of travel for all teams is clearer. Don't forget that there is always at least one team who make a good run after Christmas to challenge the top 6 or 7.
  12. Just 3 points separates the top nine teams right now, I can't remember it being this tight. There are just so many teams doing well at the moment. All the usual suspects are there with a couple of surprises, Swansea and Charlton, exceeding expectations. Any team putting in a strong run together right now has the chance to put some distance between them and pull away at the top. Can it be us? Well we won 4-1 yesterday despite our occasional defensive frailties. If we can beat Hull and Wigan and go in to the International break on a high we could come out of the break stronger and more resilient than we have been for some time as I am sure Gary Monk knows exactly where we need to improve. The test will be on Friday 18th on the Sky Friday Night Football away at Colin's Cardiff. Oh what joy there will be with a win there and the mighty Owls topping the table for at least a day. WAWAW
  13. We are still 2 points better off than last season at this stage with Hull and Wigan to come before the International break. A couple of wins could easily see us in the top two by the close of play on Saturday. We then have the chance to put the pressure on when we come back from the break as we play away at Cardiff in the televised match on Friday the 18th.
  14. There are two away and one home game in our next Three league games that take us to the point last season when it all went downhill after game 11. Three points from these three games will see us level with last term so there is the challenge for us to get ahead. We would hope that the three to equal last season will come from the home game against Wigan so anything of a return from the away games at Middlesbrough and Hull should see us in the top 6. It was a strange game yesterday even putting aside the poor refereeing performance and the theatrics of the Fulham players both of which were pathetic. We looked both comfortable and uncomfortable in equal measure. There is no doubting Fulham's skills and passing ability. There were times when it looked as though we were going under in a big way but we somehow got a foot in at the death to make the clearance. On the other hand we looked incisive and threatening on the break and could easily have scored a few goals. In the end getting the draw was probably no more than we deserved. Fulham didn't deserve the win for their play acting alone. If Fulham didn't have that in their game they would be a force to be reckoned with. With it in their game they will end up mid table wondering why a team with so many talented footballers didn't do better.
