  1. Tom Lees

    Needs some time on the bench. Asleep for both the goals conceded. First basic marking. Second allowing a quick throw to be taken.
  2. Played this style of football with no transfer budget and about 20% of the wage bill. That was justified. Carlos doing it having spent more than any manager in Wednesday history is not. No excuses.
  3. Championship Top 6

    That also makes it an opportunity. Double edged sword. If we are picking up points, it guarantees teams above us are dropping them. Big games, starting with the next one at home against Bristol City.
  4. Think that one was a Tuesday. That was also the one where the p1ss thrown down from the top tier was like a monsoon.
  5. Right, recent results are awful etc and obviously lots of people are unhappy with the manager. That all aside, interested in thoughts on this... Playing with 10 men, and from a goal down for the whole game, and still in it with 20 to go. Why not tell someone to give it everything and then make a change? E.g. Hunt could leave everything on the pitch trying to provide more attacking threat and also run himself into the ground getting back... It might pay off, then get Palmer on for the last 10 plus stoppage. But no, we leave 8 players on the pitch who are tired, whilst there are fresh options sat on the side. It doesn't surprise me we ran out of steam and conceded another late on to finish us off. But it didn't have to be that way? I don't understand?
  6. Anniversary watches

    Also cancelled mine. I won't be accepting a non limited edition watch that looks bobbar and will be delivered late, for the same price. Shambles is an understatement. I'll be writing to the club in full later.
  7. Wednesday Team Up With Sekonda

    The plain one retails for £90 most places, £70 Amazon. I bought one last night as £60-£80 markup for a very limited edition version with the clubs badge on seems about right. Absolutely no way I'd pay £150 if it wasn't limited edition. Pretty sure after VAT is paid, costs etc, the club won't have made more than £10k. To me it seems more of a gesture to the fans than a money making exercise. For that I applaud and thank the club.
  8. Wednesday Team Up With Sekonda

    I like it. Will get one. Yeah it's expensive, but it's limited edition and has our badge on it. Compared to getting a seat label, a replica shirt, or a ticket of the last home game, it's a bargain.
  9. @HirstWhoScoredIt do you have the stats for getting top 2? What's the general rule for the last 20 years? What's the record? No worries if you don't have 'em - just thought it would be interesting - seeing as that's apparently what we're doing this season.
  10. Hutchinson, Semedo, Loovens

    We don't need 1. We need 3.
  11. Absolutely no leaders. Tom Lees is a perfectly good defender, but needs to play alongside someone to organise everyone, shout, lead by example, motivate, etc. Same in midfield. Even the same in goal with Westy out. Technically they are all good enough, but the absolute lack of spine is killing us. The blend is all wrong. Replacing Loovens with van Aken would be fine if Tom Lees was ready to step up and actually act like a captain. But he isn't. He's the wrong type. Without Hutch in midfield we are all over the place. We recruited Butterfield, but he's not the boss we need to dominate in the middle. It absolutely smacks of diabolical recruitment without a plan. Buying technically good players, and expecting them to perform well without considering the mental, tactical, psychological, side is a disaster.
  12. I haven't heard anything

    Thing is, I don't think we need the chairman to make the decision. Carlos has spoken many time about the need to have the fans behind him. Whether anyone disagrees or not with it, the fact is that there's a huge number of fans that have had enough, and want him gone. If he's a man of his word, he will resign.
  13. We will hammer United

    No doubt if this was played on paper, man for man we are far better. That makes us massive favourites. But we only seem to play our best stuff in the big games when we are the underdog. Think Arsenal cup, Brighton PO, Newcastle league. When we're favourites we seem to struggle. Think Huddersfield PO. This is the biggest match they've played for 5 years. They'll be more than up for it and will no doubt be aggressive and also cynical and willing to do pretty much anything to frustrate us. Expecting it to be a tight game but eventually tactical prowess and the likes of Wallace and Fletcher who seem to thrive in the big games to see us through.
  14. Cardiff Goal Offside?

    My point was more generally rather than this specific incident. I genuinely don't understand how being in a better position to get on the end of a cross that comes in immediately after a rebound, by being in an offside position, isn't getting an advantage from the initial being offside. In either case, it's marginal and got no complaints in this instance. A whole long list of reasons contributed to the goal that were perfectly under our control and could have prevented it.
  15. Finally

    Good OP. Some clear indications of improvement to the starting 11 from last season. Just need Rhodes to come good, and maybe even Boyd once he recovers will have a big role to play as well.
