    Best to face facts.

    I’ve changed my mind about JL. I’ve been well up for promoting youth, but the run of results we’re in is a imply not good enough. I sympathise that he’s been hampered in investing in players. But his squad choices are simply awful. On a day like today against Rotherham, I looked at the bench and thought that it’s stronger than the first team. I simply don’t understand his reasoning. It doesn’t have consistency or logic to it. Indeed he seems determined to play the least experienced squad. At I now know what I want out of a Wednesday manager - someone who gets the players to attack from the first minute and take the game to the opposition. That was always CC’s fault also. He was the master at turning things around in the second half, but I want Wednesday to play like they want to win the game from the first whistle.

    We all need to admit it

  4. Just helps us go under the radar and stop teams sniffing around Penney.

    Do you know what ....

    At the beginning of the season I would’ve been totally happy to be mid-table with all the shenanigans that went on over summer. We’re in a great position, far exceeding where I thought we’d be. The fact that not only are we not as far off the pace as I thought we’d be, but also that we could’ve won last night is amazing.

    In other games today

    Utd are so annoying. Can’t they follow the script and lose games?

    The day affer

    Well that put an end to the conversation.
  8. If the table stays like this, what’s remarkable is that no team is running away with it. Currently 5 teams on 14 points. 2 points a game.
  9. Lived in Mosborough for three years as a toddler (born in Manchester) - does that count? I'm a Wednesday fan because my brother is. He was born in Sheffield. We're both born on a Wednesday! But my son follows recent family tradition (of not being Forest fans) by supporting Wednesday. He's a Londoner and 10 years old.
  10. Keep the curry away from the fish, but chips n curry sauce is right nice.
  11. Off topic this, but I was chatting to a friend who’s a Spurs fan today... told me they think very highly of Onomah. Reckons he could become as big a talent as Harry Kane - except the seniors are currently keeping him out of the team. Whelm factor is climbing now.

    Michael Hector Signing?

    Tom Lees won 9 tackles last season?
  13. It's all about expectations for me. We're in a transition year and are blooding our development squad. They will make mistakes, but they'll also show promise. So long as we're out of the danger zone it's all fine - we'll have a younger, fresher, more valuable squad. Older players = little or no sell-on value. Young players = potential sell-on value. As fans, we need to keep an appropriate level of pressure on JL, the players & DC - but not berate them so hard every time they have a poor performance. Bad games will happen when you're building a new team. What I like about JL is that he does seem to learn by his mistakes - which is something I can't hand on hear say for CC. We need to be realistic, pay each and every opposition due respect, encourage great play and enjoy the ups and downs.

    Better than bottom three ?

    Maybe it's time we stopped talking of 'lesser' clubs. We haven't been in the premier league since 2000. Perhaps we need to put our ego away and treat other teams with respect. I agree, that as Philb125 said, anyone can beat anyone in this league... but some are harder than others. There are plenty in this league that are either having or have had the benefit of parachute payments - unlike us. We're one of the worst off in that respect - which is a leveller in itself. We need to get behind the team, and hope that we manage to build a squad that can challenge for promotion... at some stage.
  15. Playing them makes them valuable though. Even if the fee is low, it's better that they're worth something. Or at least that's my tactic to raise money in Championship Manager when I take over in the first season.
