  1. 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.
  2. Owls 5-0 v Hammers. 4 2nd half goals. Waddle Wonderland. Was there with my Dad on Kop. Fond memories.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Yeah they beat Solihull Moors in the play offs
  10. Who wants to buy one of these beauties? This prototype is for the man himself as a gift from my niece.
  11. People, This was just a bit of fun. However, my sister and my niece are now in the process of knitting a Bazza Banana with full blue and white shirt, a blonde comb-over and Bannan on the back of the shirt. My niece is going to go to a game with me on the Kop at the front and as KW enters his goal at start of match or 2nd half she's going to give it to him to give to Bazza! Just a bit of fun.
  12. To get in line with FFP an attempt has been made to clone Bannan. Unfortunately it went wrong and turned both the original and clone into Banana's. We now have two Barry Banana's!
  13. The club should bring out soft toy characters of the popular players in the squad. The first should be Barry Banana. It will be Barry Bannan as a blonde banana. Followed by: Sam (Rabbit Hutch)inson And: Fernando (Forest) ieri the Tree. Thoughts?
  14. Steve Bruce had a dream to build a football team he had no money so all new players had to be on loan he got pride, passion and playing football back With a strong emphasis being to attack We're Sheffield Wednesday and our manager's taking us back.
  15. I don't get why others can't get their heads round this kind of idea. Chansiri non SWFC business accounts are nothing to do with EFL. AS suggested if he were to gift a large sum from his personal wealth to a charity for them to then use that money to buy tickets from SWFC for a treat for the people for whom their charity is a cause, then that is between him and them. It is certainly not Money Laundering.
  16. For those finding it laughable as most fans will spend that money on something else. He could easily invite the fans to the club shop to buy their tickets in a unique offer, when they join the queue on an appointment basis so as not to overcrowd, Mr C is in the shop and at thr point of transaction between the fan and the club, Mr C gifts the fan their free ticket with a transfer of funds from his own personal account to the fans account. Hey presto 2 separate transactions completed. The club gets money via a revenue stream. Mr C could "sell out" every match and get as much revenue as he likes Via the match category basis. Voilà, Wednesday no longer subject to FFP.
  17. It's not actually money laundering. A person is allowed to receive tax free gifts up to 10k per tax year without having to declare it.
  18. So the crux of our situation is that Mr C has money but due to P & S he's not allowed to invest the money as the club has to be seen to create it's own revunue and not rely on him funding us?  Well here's a thought, bare with: 1 Mr C could increase the match day ticket price to £50 all areas of the ground 2 Then he can access the club's database on fans who've bought match day tickets and season tickets for the previous 3 seasons to obtain their registered addresses. 3 He can work out the 32000 who've bought the most tickets and write to them with a personal cheque enclosed to value of £1150 (from him to them) for each of them to buy 23 home league match tickets at £50.  4) Cancel all existing season tickets and refund the pro rata value paid to each fan taking into account games already seen with their ticket. 5) Fans who've had their season tickets cancelled and costs reimbursed get match day tickets reserved in the same seats. 6) 32000 X £50 ticket generates £1.6m revenue per game (from home fans alone). Because the money is gifted from his personal money to each fan as a gift it is not part of the club's expense, when the fans buy the tickets it IS going to the club and therefore counts as Revenue. Nothing the EFL can do about a chairman personally gifting fans his personal wealth that they then spend on the company of which he is Chairman.

  20. I'd absolutely LOVE it if Bruce came out of the players tunnell leading the team out on a mobility scooter in parody of some of the spoofs of him on here. That would be a MASSIVE way to show a sense of humour and that he isn't afraid to poke fun at himself.
  21. It was Athletico Madrid we sold him to. When Big Ron went to the Villa he bought him from them.
  22. He would if thought that it wasn't going to be a problem and that Reach would be able to last the game injury free and showcase his talents. FFS.
