  1. Because who would have been making such plans? Our chairman? (Who admitted he knew very little about running a football club) Our Head Coach? Who made it abundantly clear he wasn't interested in intergrating youth? Or our then non existent CEO?
  2. I've not seen the lad play, but if the club think that he's worth signing up, then they need to get it done. If we are to learn anything from the Hirst/Clare situations, it's that we need to have a coherent statergy to show youth players a clear route to first team football. Jos has begun to integrate academy products which is great; the next step is to make sure we secure our best assets long term. For what it's worth, the figure I've heard that Hirst was offered is in no way derisory; however the money he could earn elsewhere is just significantly more, that's just the way it is in modern football. However, I'm convinced that if Hirst had been shown his clear pathway to first team football at S6 a couple of seasons ago then the situation would have been very different. Let's hope the club can learn some lessons. UTO

    How much are #SWFC players worth?

    I'd want a lot more than 3million for Bannan.

    Big sam

    His Twitter feed looks like the ramblings of an argumentative child.
  5. I think Joey has had a solid start to his S6 career. Since Bannan has been alongside him he's looked twice the player. He does a lot of the midfield graft which doesn't win all the plaudits; but players of his ilk are a key part of any sucessful side. Hope he continues to improve next season.

    All this sunny weather

    Not really my point. Regardless of the sports popularity, rugby league is a traditional winter sport, which converted to the summer (due to the blood suckers at Sky) and is now dying on its arse. Not sure I'd want that to happen to football, just so Neil could get a fan and drink Magners while watching it.

    Done absolute wonders for rugby league.... Oh no it hasn't

    Westwood in demand?

    Said this before, but I think it is highly likely we will sell at least one of our higher earners who also has some transfer value this summer. One of Lees, Forestieri, Westwood or Bannan is likely to leave IMO; as much as I rate Westwood, out of those 4, he'd be the one I'd let go.

    #SWFC players - will Jos already know?

    I think when he talks about making difficult decisions he's perhaps refering to selling players who are both high earners and saleable assets. We'll struggle to find takers willing to pay the wages of Hutch, Abdi, Rhodes, Fletcher etc. But there would certainly be intrest in Forestieri, Lees and Westwood; it wouldn't surprise me if one or more was sold in the summer.

    Lawrenson hates us.

    He's a Preston fan

    Your chance to slide tackle Jon Windle

    Windle's nowhere near as good at football as he thinks he is and was even crapper at singing... Great cause though!
  12. Wasn't Tricky Dickie's masterpiece released for the FA cup final? We had it on on the way to the playoff final, my pal's 6 year old thought it was amazing, but didn't believe that we ever got to a cup final, let alone 2 in the same year. Such a shame there are so many young owls who have only ever known us being shuffle.
  13. All the above. You can add into that mix the fact that we have the fitness of your average over 65 walking football team. The players were blowing out of their backsides after 70mins in November.

    Where will Sheffield Wednesday finish?

    We are thoroughly w*nk, devoid of confidence and if this was any other season I'd be convinced we were going down. But if you look at the table it would take a monumental turnaround from one of the bottom 3 and us to continue on our abysmal run of form for it to happen. I just can't see it. Think we will finish 20th. It says everything about our season that I'd be delighted with that. Oh dear.
