  1. I think that although there was some disharmony over the transfer to that Belgian team owned by Leicester, it could be a good time to get him back on a season long loan deal with option to purchase. He doesn't get much if any game time at Leicester. Now could be ideal opportunity for us to get him in the first team line up as number 9. It could be good for all parties! Anybody else have any thoughts on this?
  2. They can be furloughed. But the government only pays 80% up to a maximum of £2500 per month. Given that most of our players earn double that a week as a minimum, it's not going to help them pay their huge mortgages and car finance deals!
  3. As stated; The PL and EFL would need to ensure they provide financial help to the small clubs in L1 and L2 that rely on gate receipts to sustain their turnover in the meantime.
  4. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/52517532 As a football fan, I really do not understand why they (Premier League and EFL) are thinking up these ludicrous ideas to complete the season behind closed doors, award positions on merit or forfeit it as their main options. It's already been stated by the Government that public places such as bars, clubs and restaurants are unlikely to re open before Christmas. Given that football stadiums hold much larger amounts of people together, it's unlikely they will be opening until 2021 either. Given that the next football season would normally commence in August 2020 (with this one ending in May 2020), all they need to do is suspend this season as it is and upon Covid 19 restrictions being lifted on large public gatherings sometime in early 2021, allow the Season to then resume a year late in February/March so it can end in May 2021. It really IS NOT rocket science. It would just need to classed as the 19/21 as opposed to 19/20 season. That way all the promotions, relegations and titles will be resolved fairly and most importantly Safely. The PL and EFL would need to ensure they provide financial help to the small clubs in L1 and L2 that rely on gate receipts to sustain their turnover in the meantime.
  5. Rather than null and void this season, they should suspend it indefinitely until football can resume as normal. As EFL and PL have both said, it's likely that games will not resume until 2021. That means the next season won't start anyway until minimum of 4-5 months after usual start date. Surely it's best for season to just resume in 2021 around February/March and miss a season out rather than nullifying the efforts made this season. In respect of contracts, those out of contract in July this year may just have to do some real work on the front line for a few months, or given that they're in a union maybe the top players in PL and high earning Championship teams can help their colleagues out a little bit down in the bottom leagues where they normally get a modest salary of £500 - £1000 a week.
  6. I'd go for my Son's under 14 team manager. Played 12 league Games, won 12. Goal difference something like plus 60. As a Wednesday fan I'd get myself in as a mental health coach to keep the players in a positive mind set.
  7. Owls 5-0 v Hammers. 4 2nd half goals. Waddle Wonderland. Was there with my Dad on Kop. Fond memories.
  8. If palmer is injured then the line up without Fox in the squad could easily be; Rhodes, Forestieri. Harris Bannan Hutchinson. Lee Reach, Lees, Borner, Iorfa Westwood
  9. A rebuild could see the stadium elevated above the flood plain with an irrigation system for water to drain off appropriately. New walkways could be built on platforms with ramps and steps. Proper segregation could be arranged for the away fans.
  10. How about for one season only we do a ground share with one of our neighbours while Hillsborough stadium is completely renovated. Knock down and rebuild the entire stadium in its existing location.
  11. If as suggested Bruce will be given a £60 million warchest to spend at The Toon, maybe he'll make an offer for say Bannan and Forestieri of say £20 million for the pair. Plus the reported £5million for him and his backroom team. I'd be very impressed with this kind of deal. Fresh injection of money to reshape the squad further. Bring in Chris Hughton and let him guide us to the premier league while Toon, Dem Blades and Brighton get relegated!
  12. https://www.footballtransfertavern.com/championship/sheffield-wednesday-bruce-should-go-all-out-to-bring-in-benjamin-kololli/amp/ Apparently Jos was Portuguese and we're based in West Yorkshire. Who knows what they've got wrong about the player himself. This reeks of lazy, rubbish, (not even) journalism.
  13. For us; Hirst before Bould and intermittently afterwards. Waddle. If only Hirst had been fully fit to benefit from Waddle's creativity. Best opposition player I remember is Jurgen the German. However out of English players it has to be Gazza or Barnes. What I would like to add is, however ungainly he 'appeared' Carlton Palmer was immense in midfield. He was able to wrap those lanky legs round much more skilful players to win the ball, his energy was relentless and he NEVER gave up. He was the engine that allowed that luxury of Sheridan and Waddle. He didn't do anything less than Vieria afterwards at Arsenal it's just he didn't 'look the part'. A truly underrated and unfairly dismissed player.
  14. Yeah they beat Solihull Moors in the play offs
  15. Who wants to buy one of these beauties? This prototype is for the man himself as a gift from my niece.
