    Sheffield Wednesday Reserves
  1. The SWFC Chairman

    It is easy to have a go at DC for the 'underperformance ' of the team but perhaps undeserved ! DC has done much to improve the overall situation and has in his time provided substantial funds to improve the SWFC squad and perhaps he has been wrongly advised when it comes to acquisitions. But, bear in mind, he is chairman with a board of directors and he, with them, will have to decide the way forward. It is not just as simple as the footy manager thing
  2. Lee Johnson from Bristol

    Twelve months ago ( and most of last season ) the Bristol City Fans were calling for his head !
  3. I hate international breaks

    Fair enough, I hadn't looked at the regulations/small print ! Makes you wonder though, the major clubs who are affected by it are the least compromised given their squad sizes !
  4. I hate international breaks

    But it is not just the FA/FL, it is all the affilated Associations across the world who cobbled up the current arrangements (rightly or wrongly).
  5. Anniversary third strip!

    The design is OK but our colours are blue and white and, as this is a one in a 150 years kit, I would have been happier if the shorts had been blue, the socks blue and white, and the piping and 'Chansiri' had also been blue. A missed opportunity ! But what do I know ?
  6. Forest have appointed a decent Manager in Mark Warburton - he would have done well here !
  7. I do agree but how else can those fans express their dissatisfaction with the manager's tactics ?
  8. Carlos apologises to the fans

    Sadly for us to sack CC now would highlight a huge missed opportunity as opposed to having parted the ways in May/June time. NOW it would / will be much more dificult to find the right replacement to take Wednesday forward. Here's hoping CC will see the light !
  9. Whats have the promoted teams in common?

    The thing which creates winners or near winners is not an impressive squad but a settled squad - or a 'team' We have a great squad but, to me, it seems CC doesn't have any semblance of a settled team as he seems to approach every match with a view to 'what he has' He needs to at least have the spine of the team which can then cope with the necessary changes which inevitably result from injuries, suspensions etc.
  10. Chansiri's fishy business

    Correct, but they used to be very good with nice tender beef !
  11. Och Aye the Noo

    Burke is the only one I would be excited about !
  12. Grant Hanley

    Absolutely - Diver !
  13. Pocognoli

    Brighton took him on loan from WBA during the past season. I remember his last appearance ( possibly ) for WBA was a televised match against Manure and he played, if not a blinder, a very decent game. His problem was that TP never ever rated him after he ( TP ) moved from Stoke and PL game time was negligible. He seemed to have done reasonably well at Brighton but though he's 30/31 I reckon he could still do a decent job for us.
  14. Medical Department Sacked

    Sorry to say but this does look a bit like a scapegoat situation ! If there is any merit in it then fair enough but, to sack an entire medical team on the basis of 'what' ! Look again at Chelski where only one individual was the focus. I hope this doesn't end up costing the club big time.

    Sorry I don't have a link but there was an interesting and enlightening thread on OTIB (Bristol City Forum) concerning Scottish football - It is an interesting read
