  1. Jordan Rhodes? Oops, no wait a minute.
  2. Excellent professional who never gave less than his best even when things weren't going right. Just the sort of player who can go under the radar but a vital part of our squad in our most successful seasons recently.
  3. Doesn't seem to have improved any during his time away. A then local manager didn't pull his punches. 'Doncaster Rovers manager Darren Ferguson launched a blistering attack on the standard of match officials after referee Andy Haines waved away a late penalty appeal in the draw with Plymouth. “It’s the most blatant penalty you’ll ever see,” Ferguson said. “I think it’s disgusting, to be honest. To not see that is a disgrace.” They’re part-time, the standard’s appalling, the fitness levels at this level are a disgrace. What would I like the FA to do? Shoot them.” Jan 2018 '
  4. Totally agree with the comments so far. I always find it interesting to get the views from other fans' forums and Bristol City's were loving Bannan after the match. Here's just a few; 'Bannan is what we need: great final ball, drives the team forward and looks to shoot.' 'Probably every Champ team would like Bannon' 'Interesting to see if Bannan stays at Weds in the summer; if so, and with Bruce guiding the Owls, they'll be serious top six material.' 'Much do you think he would go for? I think it would be £9m+.' 'A player of Bannans quality is what we have lacked' Good to see others recognising and praising our quality.
  5. Mixed feelings about the FA doing nothing about the missiles thrown on to the pitch in the derby. Sends out the wrong message to the small minority of idiots who profess to 'support' the club.
  6. Wouldn't it be great if Wednesday's away fans were referred to as 'excursionists' today. Much more respectful I think.
  7. Just think how good he might have been if he hadn't been on the ×××× all the time.
  8. £8000 in 1955 is about £200,000 today so a good response for DD to try and begin a new life.
  9. It seems the tide is turning against the popular belief about the importance of stretching. A review of the basic scientific literature suggested five reasons why stretching before exercise would not prevent injuries: First: Immobilization, or "heating-induced increases in muscle compliance", caused tissues to rupture more easily. Second: Stretching before exercise would have no effect for activities in which excessive muscle length is not an issue (e.g., jogging). Third: Stretching won't affect muscle compliance during eccentric activity (where the muscle is contracting, and an external force is trying to lengthen the muscle: negative reps), when most strains are believed to occur. Fourth: Stretching can produce damage at the cytoskeleton level. The cytoskeleton is a dynamic structure which maintains cell shape, often protects cells, enables cellular motion, and plays important roles in both intracellular transport and cellular division. Fifth: Stretching appears to mask muscle pain in humans. (www.bodybuilding.com/fun/pre-exercise-stretching-and-injuries.htm) Seems like I've been 'exercising' properly all long!
  10. Thought last night felt like the early days of Carlos again when we pressed from the start of games and put teams on the back foot.
  11. Surely Bruce is not allowed to 'referee' as well is he? Mind you he made a good job of trying to do that when he came to Hillsborough as Villa manager.
  12. It’s all about opinions so each to their own but 3 people voted for Boyd as man of the match. Perhaps they’re his dad, wife and sister.
  13. It's ironic that when the 70's owl was introduced it received a VERY mixed reception. No badge was worn on the kit then anyway and no replica kits were on sale at extortionate prices (Suggs sold a few shirts now and again) and no social media then of course but The Star's Letters Page had a number of disgruntled fans commenting on our tradition being washed away. I must be getting old when we have come full circle and the 70's design is now a classic not to be messed with.
