  1. Sadly it’s taken DC a hell of a long time to discover that he knows zilch about running a football club, his arrogance must have cost him dear, well he’s hopefully learned his lesson. I’ve got a sneeky feeling that we are in for some surprises next season, had we been promoted we would have been relegation fodder, SB now has the time that he needs, hopefully without a points deduction.
  2. . You’ve really got to want to take them, Waddle wasn’t keen, others love them, SB needs to find a couple in the latter category.
  3. In the dizzy heights of our Premier League days, we never achieved an average attendance figure of 30,000, so why not look at replacing Leppings Lane, smartening up the Kop and building a state of the art training facility?
  4. I just love Wednesdayites, a short while ago we were at the gates of oblivion, now we should construct a super stadium, keep it up guys.
  5. All we need is an international break to kick start this sort of thing, I dare not even think of what the OP might get up to during the close season.
  6. Would SB still have agreed to join us if we were about to receive a wacking great fine and placed on the silly sod’s step? I appreciate that he’s being well paid, but their were other clubs that no doubt would have been interested and weren’t about to receive a size 12 in the bowlocks.
  7. I recall us beating West Ham 7-0, the guy reading the scores out wouldn’t have it and asked for corroboration, he looked a right pillock when he got it.
  8. Yes, but he is obviously training with the Norwich squad, and is regularly on the bench, a bit like Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and David Faairclough used to be. Norwich simply don’t need him, but are stuck with him, and in his favour he’s not hiding in the treatment room is he?
  9. All pre-Bruce player assessments are now in the bin, he’s given everyone a clean sheet, it’s now up to the players to impress him, and IMHO he will do exactly the same wit Rhodes, we now have a proper manager.
  10. Cynic that I may be, but is there a remote possibility that this is a ‘cash for the lads’ urine take?
  11. I know what you’re saying, I reckon that the Germany match will be fixed, I wonder how the mood would go if Razor dropped dead during it. Waddle is the same height as me, he’s half a stone heavier and 14 years my junior, plenty of time for him to catch Razor up.
  12. I recall Stanley Mathews playing top class league football at age 50, I saw Carlton Palmer jogging in Longshaw age 52, he looked a million dollars, to be honest Harry Redknapp at 72 looks in better fettle than most of his team, would it have been that difficult to pick a side of fit over 50’s ex pro footballers?
  13. Very amusing and also very sad in places, however my wife might stop attempting to get me to lose some weight after seeing some of those paragons of fitness, when the trainer guy was measuring Razor’s delicate waistline he ought to have asked him to hold the tape at the front while he strolled round. Is it just me or does Chris Waddle appear to be very shy, he sort of hugs the background and speaks when he’s spoken to?
  14. Trust someone to bring common sense into the equation.
  15. Have you considered beating the blunts in the final?
  16. The usual negativo suspects were reticent to even consider a top half finish a week ago, SB is getting the very best out of the squad, they are four square behind him, pity about some of the supporters,
  17. I’ve used an almost identical route for donkey’s years, I avoid the Cat & Fiddle by going to the right at the top of Winnets, I then pick up the by-pass and turn left at it’s end, going through Whaley Bridge, then turning right at the lights onto the road signposted Macclesfield, the rest as per your post.
  18. My theory is that both Carlos and Jos had little knowledge of training pitch quality and suitability, DC has zero knowledge and probably no interest. Bruce however will sort these things out, DC will either listen to him or lose him, I’m backing the former.
  19. I get the £2m offer for a player who isn’t worth diddly squat, great move turning it down.
  20. For the enth time I’m not comparing Hirst with Brooks.
  21. I think that he weighed up the ‘big club’ dilemma, and opted for the easy option, however I do agree that it was a bad move, just imagine how many England caps Giggs could have won.
  22. I’m not comparing him with Brooks, what I am comparing is the business skills of both owners. What I am certain of is that McCabe would have made money out of Hirst, by making the most out of him.
  23. The difference between DC and McCabe is that the former runs the Owls as a hobby, whilst the latter runs the blunts as a business. Had Hirst been with the blunts they would have made a player, and probably big money out of him, David Brooks played 30 games and was sold for £11.5 million, we’re not in the same league business wise.
