    ‘We Must See The Reality’

    He isn't wrong though is he? We have blown our load, and the reason we were able to scrape through the embargo was likely an agreement that all the high earners out of contract would not be played, would be released at the end of the season (or sooner), and their appearance fees, clean sheet bonuses, etc, wouldn't be outgoings as they would never have a chance to earn them. I don't get whats taking our fans so long to realise this - We can't afford to play these guys and pay their appearance fees and bonuses, we can't afford to keep them after this season. We need them off the books asap and are hoping someone will take them in January. Jos is not the right guy to get this team going, but in his above statements, he isn't wrong at all - Our expectation levels need to drop massively, and we need to open our eyes to the reality that each time one of those guys walks onto the pitch, they are paid a hefty appearance fee.

    Poll needed re Slavisa Jokanovic

    Fulham spent £90m this season, £30m last season, £23m the season before that, not counting the big money loans, while I agree this guy did decent, we have zero to spend. The guy has a proven record of putting together a decent team with an open cheque book (or dodgy loans), which we don't have. We aren't shopping in the same market anymore guys, start looking for people who do well on zero budget

    Fans forum

    People really need to calm down - This right here is the most likely scenario of them all, and one that we must accept as "the plan". We don't need to go to a fans forum and cry like babies to realise that we went for it, we failed, we now have to suck it up for a couple of years before we have another go. Bloody hell, we've been in far worse places than this in recent times

    Round and round we go

    Who ever comes in as a replacement, sections of OwlsTalk will be calling for their head from day one, just to be the guy that says "told you so" at the end. Looking at the many topics of replacement managers on here, every single name mentioned is followed by posts of him being the best manager ever, and the worst manager ever. We gambled and spent to the limit, we missed out, just - Now we have to suck up for a few seasons until we can spend again. Regardless of who the manager is, we as a fan base need to realign our expectation levels. We are not going to be challenging for the playoffs. We are going to need to sell one or two players. We won't be bringing in a manager who spent £200m at his last club. Our team will be half populated by young lads from the youth system. We will likely lose as many as we win. For the record, I'd like to see Jos replaced as the tactics don't gel with the players we have on the books, but I'd like the replacement to be with a long term goal, and the fans to be told this very clearly, so we can get back to being at one with the manager and the team.
  5. Is there a protest happening? The attendance looks terrible! None of that false sky crowd effect on the red button too it seems!

    Bristol City - V -The Wednesday OMDT

    That skill by Bannan thought!

    Reading 1 - 2 Sheffield Wednesday FC - MDT thingy

    Wonder what the two new lads will think, when they see Nuhiu "running" around? I'm happy with the majority of that lineup, would have preferred Fletcher up top, and I'm sure people will be grumbling about it all the way through the game

    What do you think about this?

    I don't have a season ticket, and have a Sky Sports subscription - So I love it!

    His video, his movement and body language on the pitch reminds me a lot of Joao

    Nuhiu nearly cleared the second one off the line!

    Sheffield Wednesday vs Ipswich (MDT thingy)

    Is Nuhiu giving us much? I ask because I think our pressing style we played midweek started with Fletcher's hounding, which I don't think Nuhiu gives us at all

    Bloody Well Done

    There was energy, tempo, drive, commitment, and what looked like a togetherness in that team tonight - Very happy with that. Big praise to the young lads, I didn't think anyone looked out of place in the first team, and praise to the more experienced lads too, stepped up Hopefully see a lot more of this going forward

    Promoting youth players too soon.

    You are talking about 18-20 year olds, it's highly likely they are readers of these type of forums, and seeing a thread like this come up could impact their confidence.

    Promoting youth players too soon.

    The fact that there is a thread on here saying they aren’t good enough, after some of them have played a total of 45 minutes first team football, suggests that people are on their backs?

    Promoting youth players too soon.

    Not so much a case of throwing in the towel, more a case that somehow we need to restrict spending for two or three years, and the best way to do that while still being competitive in the league is to find young hungry players for free - We have several already here at the club, they just need to gain first team football experience. I can't think of a better place to gain it than at a tough level with the liked of Bannan by their side
