  1. In that case, you’ve got to clap Bannan for effort, clap Fletcher for effort. Clap Forestieri for effort. He was one of but a few players today who didn’t look look out of his depth. He’s clearly not been our best player over the last few years but if you make him out to be worse than the rest today then you’re just criticising him because you’re too lazy to pay attention to the rest of the match.
  2. Joao - 214 minutes per goal and 477 minutes per assist - 148 minutes per goal or assist Winnall - 162 minutes per goal and 1132 minutes per assist - 142 minutes per goal or assist Numbers not dissimilar, then. But then bear in mind that Winnall has usually been played in his preferred position whereas Joao has usually been played more as a winger. Also consider injuries, suspensions etc. I can see more of a place for Winnall if Rhodes is to leave, especially if he can get some good service into the box and some pace on the wings. However, I think we're losing something very different with Joao.
  3. Looked to me like he came off injured yesterday. I'd be pretty annoyed if I got forced off the pitch by injury in a very good team performance and knew that there was a chance of missing the Pigs match. Don't think it's fair to say he was overly lazy seeing as we pressed just about perfectly as a team the whole time he was on a pitch. He has slumped shoulders so some on here think that negates all of his attacking talent and actual workrate. Let's not make our most dangerous striker the next scapegoat after a really good result.
  4. After that goal, nothing else really matters. Reach MOTM
  5. Great news. One of our only real creative, incisive players of the past 12 months
  6. And also he needs someone dragging defenders around to give him space. He isn’t the same player without Joao next to him
  7. Our form under Jos from when he was appointed to the end of last season would have placed us in 9th - even with that crazy list of injuries. Since Bannan returned and the system clicked a bit, the form til the end of last season would have seen us finish 3rd. Obviously there are worries about the background of the club but we’re 2 games into the season. Let’s give JL a chance to see what he can do with the (very shitty) hand he’s been dealt before we get out our pitchforks.
  8. ^^^^ joao running the channels and giving nuhiu space to bang in the goals has already been proven to work that completely ignores the fact that we have two quality strikers in hooper and fletcher why madine?
  9. Can usually see Wembley's arch from the window of my top floor loo. Too cloudy to see it today - hopefully not a bad omen Come on you Owls!
  10. Think the official attendance was just slightly over 38,000. Wycombe didn't bring many at all and a chunk of those looked to be Owls anyway, so yeah probably just shy of 38k of us. Either way, it was a hell of a lot of us and a mental atmosphere
  11. what a day Wycombe 2012 was, love to see Hillsborough bouncing like that. Not convinced I ever want to sit on Leppings Lane again though! 37,000+ Owls there if Wikipedia tells the truth
  12. Thought I'd get to read some really juicy stats from the title but, alas, it wasn't to be
