  1. Aston Villa - V - The Wednesday OMDT

    Great OMDT M'Lud. I was hoping for something a bit more sleep-inducing but your whistle stop tour through the events of the week and then sudden u-turn into a pleasant quiet garden were far from that. And the statistics of Villa's success against us could be enough to keep me awake all night.I'm off to my comfy bed now, and hope you get a good night sleep in your new accommodation! Tomorrow is a new day, with the opportunity for a glorious victory for the Owls. I think we can do it.
  2. On the SKY EFL News page there is an article with statistically the best XI players in October. Adam Reach makes the team. http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11688/11109786/sky-bet-championship-best-stats-xi-of-october-leeds-wolves-and-cardiff-players-feature Well done Adam Reach. He makes a valuable contribution most of the time, and his recent goals have obviously led to this recognition.
  3. Derby County vs Sheffield Wednesday - OMDT

    Here's good news. I won't be there so there's a decent chance we'll win. Been to four this season (including both Bolton games) and not seen a win. Good luck to all those going to Derby today. Hope we bring the points back to Sheffield.
  4. Bolton 2 : 1 Sheffield Wednesday OMDT

    Thanks M'Lud for the OMDT. I'll be there tomorrow. Can't wait now. We have to win. We're going to win. Now it's back down to business. I went to the Bolton cup match this season and have rarely felt lower than when we were 3-0 down that night. God help us, please let's not have that again. This division is pretty crazy as shown by Birmingham beating Cardiff tonight with Maghoma reportedly making a significant contribution (who I was not sad to leave Hillsborough because he always passed sideways so often). But let's not have any shocks this time. Wednesday must win. And it's my Birthday so please can I have a gift from the team. WAWAW. COME ON WEDNESSDAY!!
  5. Does anyone work with Leeds United fans?

    I work in Leeds. Fans of Leeds United are a unique bunch of arrogant self-important right wing gits. As soon as they get a wiff of success - as they are having now - their sense of entitlement to being amongst the elite overflows, and they are insufferable. It's funny becuae (as someone above has mentioned) they can be decent and occasionally even nice people until you start talking about football. Then all of a sudden they transform into arrogant sh*ts who are only too willing to believe a myth that they are the greatest club in the world and always have been and always will be. No amount of evidence to the contrary can make them see sense. Having said that, the majority of Leeds United fans are not nice at all and are racist Nazis if you just scratch the surface of their personalities. They try to hide it but is there not far under the surface.
  6. Wednesday 3 : 0 L**ds United OMDT

    Just checking because I think there's quite a few Owls today who will complain if we win because it means Carlos will survive. Some seem so keen for him to go that they are keen for us to be defeated today.
  7. Wednesday 3 : 0 L**ds United OMDT

    .......being pedantic, it sounds like you might complain if we win!?!
  8. Wednesday 3 : 0 L**ds United OMDT

    I work in L**ds so tomorrow I will be looking at getting the treatment at work you lot must all have got last week. Last week I got off lightly. #My turn now#There's no escape this time for me.
  9. Wednesday 3 : 0 L**ds United OMDT

    Thanks for the brilliant OMDT m'Lud. Something to cheer me up when the prospect of this match is pretty gloomy. Sorry to be a bit of an Eeyore, but I can only see that our dull and predictable tactics, pitted against a side with strength and pace will result in further humiliation for Owls across the world, after a week where humiliation has already been heaped on humiliation. I wonder whether many Owls will brave the elements to support the team today, or stay home or go to the pub? Could be that one feature of the match is a remarkably low attendance for what is historically an important fixture. But still this is football. Gloriously unpredictable. Of course there is hope we will win! Come on Wednesday! UTO!
  10. Evidence that he knows he is going down. There was little to be pleased with in tonight's performance. Carlos is getting desperate, I am afraid. It is going to be sad to witness his downfall, but I fear it is inevitable. Last chance might be some miracle against Leeds. Perhaps he had better play Mattias and hope he reproduces the wonder goal?
  11. One dimensional, one paced footballers...

    I appreciate what you are saying but this is not the problem of the players, this is a problem of coaching. Lee, a consistently good and excitng player, was invisible tonight because he was dealing with the right hand side. As we saw on Sunday, the tactics have become totally predictable: pass around the back and then someone (usually Lees) tries a diagonal ball which is predictable and the forward line are static. Easy to defend. That was how SUFC dismantled us - they knew we play like this and they took the ball off us high up the pitch and punished us. Any other team that thinks about it will do the same. Terrible coaching all round. What has happened to the more dynamic approach Carlos introduced in the first season with us? No evidence of it now. Is that because there was one of his coaching staff who decided to stay in Portugal after the first season? Was that the person who coached dynamic approach play down the channels? Because we saw that in the first season and then never again since. Perhaps it is my memory that is faulty but that is how I am remembering things.
  12. I lost faith in CC tonight. Supported him up to now, but tonight was worse than Sunday. Lee was invisible because he was dealing with the right hand side.

That was how SUFC dismantled us - they knew we play like this and they took the ball off us high up the pitch and punushed us. Any other team that thinks about it will do the same.

  13. My first derby

    Obviously there is no connection between you going and our performances. That is just chance. I don't get to a lot more matches than you, and I think I was all those you mentioned (was that the Ipswich game where the kid scored against us on his debut?). At least today we saw an exciting match with plenty to talk about. Better than some 1-0 defeat. That feeling when we equalised was special even though it was fleeting given the admittedly pretty dire performance our lads put in today. Wednesday will always have there ups and downs and that's part of why we go to Football matches. And I bought a programme today, which would have been a nice souvenir if we had got a spectacular victory, but actually is pretty tedious, so you aren't missing much. WAWAW!!
  14. Player ratings

    Westwood 4 (where was he for the first goal?) Hunt 5 (some good attacking play, some idiotic defending) Lees (some poor decisions and passes straight to the opposition - but he was not on his own in that) Van Aken 4 (better going forward than defending) Reach 5 (not a defender by nature and got found out several times) Wallace 5 (some good wing play but did not link up well with others) Bannan 4 (looked lost at times) Jones 2 (as poor as he often is, despite recently having improved) Lee 4 (only one bit of creative attacking play, but got lost in the middle of the field) Hooper 7 (he is one who consistently causes problems for the opposition, and you could see his frustration at the lack of support he was getting from his team mates) Fletcher 4 (kept trying, but working alone up front was isolated and comfortably dealt with by their defence). Joao 6 (scored a good goal but also got his legs tangled up underneath him a lot as usual) Rhodes 5 (does not look good enough to lay in this team, I'm afraid). Butterfield 5 (largely anonymous in his brief appearance). CC 2 (looked like genius when he switched to 4-3-3 after HT and Joao scored, but clearly not getting the best out of these players. Two goals came when the team had dropped concentration - the first and the third. Fletcher needed a strike partner rather than always being left in the box alone. Time may have run out for CC if we stagnate in mid-table).
  15. Football is brilliant

    It is the glory of football that it is not entirely predictable, but it is most pleasurable when you have a squad to back that is good enough to predict accurately more times than not that they will win. Today being present at a mach with 6 goals was better than a match with no goals or one goal against, but it did not bring as much pleasure as I wanted. You can appreciate that football is brilliant for the impartial observer, but for the fan a defeat is never good no matter how spectacular!
