    Morgan Fox

    As a footballer your first action when the ball is played in behind you should be to get there control the ball , look up and pass. He strolls to the ball by which time two of the opposition are on him and loses the ball puts someone else in trouble! As a footballer when you receive the ball in space you should drive it forward causing the opposition to come to you and opening up space for the other players, He virtually without exception stops the ball with his body facing back towards our goal keeper meaning he kills our attack whilst putting another player under pressure. I was and still am to a great extent a fan of CC but who the hell do we get scouting because FOX never has been a good footballer. Ps the last said about his attitude and commitment the better

    Man of the match

    Game of opinions but I must have been at a different match, Fox was better 2nd half but was abysmal first half. Our best outfield player for me was Palmer but I would give Wildsmith MOM bounced back well after last week
  3. Leeds signed Tyler Roberts yesterday for £2.5 million which could rise according to the press to £4 million. He has never started for WBA and scored 5 goals in 19 games whilst on loan at Walsall, He has never started for a team that has been unable to score all season!! 4 years ago I think would have cost £200k, Makes the 10-15 million paid by Wolves for tried and tested strikers look cheap!

    Player Ratings

    Dawson - 7 - couple of dodgy moments but dealt with most things really well. A couple of smart saves Nielsen - 8 - grew into game good debut Venancio - 8 - looked very assured again. Looked after the two young lads admirably O'Grady - 7 - not the biggest but a like Nielson grew into game. Hunt - 6 - . Did ok on return but crosses poor Fox -5 - passed book too often and negative, not good enough Jones - 7 - solid enough. Nothing spectacular but great sense of positioning Butterfield - 6 - a bit less crab like but not the player I was expecting when we signed him Boyd - 7 - great in the first half, not quite a good in the second but nice to see him in the pitch for 90 mins Matias - 8 - again, nice to see him back. Took his goal well and was lively all evening NUHIU - 8 - led the line well, took his goal well, clearly loves playing for the club. Well done big fella Reach - not on long enough to judge Jos - 9 - good team selection with some of the young lads in the starting line up at last. Got us through with another clean sheet and saved enough legs for Friday.

    Ask The Chairman Part 13 - GEORGE HIRST

    The point is that if we paid George Hirst 10K per week players like Wildsmith and Dawson and many many more would want big increases. Congratulations to the chairman for sticking to his principles and his structure,, So sorry GH has been so badly advised, what hurts even more a club hero is to blame, shame on you David Hirst!!!!!

    Paul Chittenden RIP

    Paul has for the last 20 years Sat in the North Stand at row 35 seat approx 133.
  11. Just heard the sad news that Paul AKA Wobblegob has passed away. Paul had not been well for a number of months but his health had deteriorated rapidly over the last few weeks and he was admitted to the Northern General last week where he sadly passed away today. Paul had been watching Wednesday for 60 years and anyone who knew him will have a story to tell. For the past 25 years myself and others have shared a drink with Paul on matchdays initially at the Forty Foot and for the last 10 years at the Jubilee Club. As soon as funeral details are known I will post them on here,

    Time to fight back

    Agree 100%. We have been poor this season particually at home. But the chairman supports the club in a way we have never seen before, the manager tries to play attractive football and generally picks a team we mainly agree with - we have just not hit form yet! If we are 6th playing at 60% we should make the playoffs and if we hit form soon could threaten the automatics, Burnley were 9 points behind front two at this point last season. BELIEVE!!!!!

    Semantics but technically correct, Joe Palmer is the chief Operating Officer!
