  1. ........PIGS MIGHT FLY !!!!! Donated !! lets raise a MASSIVE amount for a fantastic cause........ UTO
  2. Playing in midfield is an entirely different role to playing CH as the play comes at you from all angles and players move around you. As you can see with JP, he often gets caught between players and the ball gets passed around him. In defence the play is mainly in front of you. As good as prospect at CH as Thorniley is, he's no midfielder.
  3. He didn’t have a mare, he was a constant thorn, but he did look rusty in front of goal and should have scored at leat 1 chnacechance
  4. Dont be stupid. No one played well but they were two of the better ones in a terrible all round team performance
  5. OP really should get a grip !! They are young lads thrown into a team that lacks talent and commitment in many areas and a tried tested and stable defensive system (not to mention pace and physicality). The defence gets changed every week both in people and formation. No wonder they struggle to gel it together. Dawson has made some great saves and yes an odd mistake or two but has real potential (as does Wildsmith). Him, Baker, Penny, Thorniley and Co are first year pro's (in the championship). They all show promise, but should be allowed time to develop and have the senior pro's carry the load and the pressure, but this is just not being allowed to happen as they are being hung out to dry by the manager and senior pro's ....and i feel sorry for them. Don' start scapegoating them or we will ruin them. Take manure or any of the other premiership clubs, they blood their youngsters slowly (even when they cosy many £10's of millions). The fault is with Jos for dumping the older 'steady pro's en-mass like Westwood, Hutchinson, Jones Boyd and Abdi, who can do a holding job for us in this situation. Taxi for Jos and the entire back room team !!!
  6. Incorrect team selection and a 'square pegs in round holes' formation were the primary reasons for last nights poor showing. Reach hasnt been the same since he's been moved into a strange central/floating supporting position behind the strikers, Joao isn't a winger and Nuihu cant hold the ball up when played long, Pelupessy would have made no difference last night in my humble opinion. It was just too many changes and a bad night !!
  7. We get two mentions here. A brilliant one from Jarvis and another from those boys from High Green........... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-45443993
  8. 1970. A friend of my dads took me to see Wednesday v Norwich (as my dad had zero interest in football), we sat in the Cantilever. All i remember of the game was us winning (2-1). My main memory strangely was the meat pie and bovril he bought me. I thought it was amazing 48 years later, so much has changed in the game (and not always for the better), but a pie and bovril, still does it for me on a cold day. UTO WTID
  9. Brilliant day out. Early train to London, meet some old mates and have a few drinks around Paddington, fast train to Reading. Some more beer and quality fish and chips at the station in Reading. Taxi to ground and straight in...... yes it’s a bit of a soulless stadium, but we won and played well. Post game walked back to the Hilton, had a beer while crowd cleared, taxi back to station and then back to London for more beer a curry and a very happy headache this morning !!! whats not to like??? UTO
  10. Agreed....... apart from your Reach comments. Reach was poor against Ipswich, but he is being played out of position and looks lost. He is not lazy and doesn’t bottle it. There’s were many games last season where he carried the team. Cut the lad a bit of slack, he’s in important part of our team and when he finds his form again, he’ll contribute greatly.
  11. Actually it can get quite rowdy in the south stand. Lots of huffing and puffing by older gentlemen and shouts of 'crikey by jove' surely thats a foul referee. Added to that you get to see whos blagged a seat in the directors box...... plus if your a foundation member there's direct access to the foundation lounge from the concourse where you can get served quicker (beer and coffee) and if you dont want to rush your beer you can watch the second half on the big screens. Whats not to like ?!?!
  12. He’s no great loss. Distribution was often poor and went missing at times when marking. we can do better for the money quoted. UTO
  13. Some pace to allow us the option of breaking quickly, (ideally with a physical presence), would help us combat some teams that we struggled with over the last couple of years. Apart from that if everyone can stay fit, we should have plenty of options. Perhaps the good young lads coming through can save us a few quid as defensive back ups with Loovens going.
