  1. With Cardiff's relegation I just don't understand why we managed to get him for nothing. Bizarre! But what a coup! Involved in both goals yesterday and he tracks back too. Extraordinary free signing.
  2. After 60 years plus of supporting the Wednesday all of the above! But 1966 & 1993 F.A.Cup finals must take preference not to mention the 1983 Highbury semi! I never thought we’d lose that one & the way United played in the first game at Wembley we really could have been the last 2nd Division team to win the Cup. Let’s face it the Cup has given us all some horrendous memories!
  3. Now that the dust has settled a bit and my disappointment and anger has subsided after a very gutsy display on Saturday, I have to say Bruce has brought in three very good acquisitions(the Brentford boy needs a bit more time to fit in). Why did Warnock let Harris go? Bizarre! Iorfa was a snip at £ 200,000 and he also brought a highly esteemed fitness coach on board. It’s so frustrating that Bruce quickly realised what improvements were needed and planned accordingly - he could have been a real Hillsborough hero. Why he wanted the grief of the Newcastle fans & work for Ashley despite his boyhood allegiance, I can’t understand! 95% of managers are sacked anyway (which is why I don’t really want loyal servant Bullen to get the job) and the build up to Bruce’s demise at Gallowgate will be messy and toxic. After a 40 year career in football he surely didn’t need the money or the hassle. Awaking the still let’s be honest sleeping giant that is Wednesday could have crowned his career!
  4. Apologies - finger trouble and actually Bannan was the pick in a very good display!
  5. Sorry omitted Palmer & Hutchinson - both excellent today!
  6. Three lovely goals to enjoy. Difficult to pick a MoM as several played extremely well. 2 things though - the Reading first half miss was unreal + after the equaliser Hutchinson superb header from Bannon’s corner stopped any Reading momentum in it’s tracks. Great to begin a season with an away win! Borner, Bannon, Lees, Fletcher, Harris & Jaio(a great cameo!) all terrific. Very happy!
  7. I seem to recall Wednesday always had red numbers in the late fifties & early sixties before the change to “Ipswich” colours. My preference would be red because I’m slightly concerned that I my failing eyesight will not cope with gold.
  8. Reasonable chance that Bruce will have been sacked before the compensation has been agreed!
  9. Picture on BBC just now of Bruce about to hold a Wednesday scarf up last February! It just makes you sick. The Newcastle fans in Shanghai had a lot to say about him as you can imagine!
  10. Not a word about us on Sky just what a good appointment he’ll be for Newcastle! I’m seething about his disgraceful behaviour and the extraordinary thing is that the Toon fans, virtually to a man, don’t want him & Ashley & Bruce must know how toxic this appointment is!
  11. I think his management days are over but of one thing you can be certain; his loyalty would never be an issue and he’d never walk out of the Wednesday to manage his “boyhood” club!
  12. Alan Brown bought him from Chelsea for £37,500(!) I remember. The most expensive teenage signing at the time. Good player who quickly seemed to lose interest after 1967. He scored at Wembley when Scotland beat us 3-2 a year after the World Cup. I found it bizarre and slightly annoying that then years on from 1966 Peter Rodrigues lifted the Cup for Southampton and McCalliog starred in midfield!
  13. I attended that 1-0 defeat to Chester. We were shocking I’m afraid - never knew about the “fake news” the following day!
  14. Every aspect of that final few weeks of the 1992/93 season is heartbreaking to this day - arguably beginning with Steve Bruce and “Fergie Time!” And it didn’t stop there(& probably never will). Six months or so later I had the misfortunate to be walking through Victoria Station where hundreds of Gooners we’re heading off to Highbury for a Cup Winners Cup tie. It should have been us!!! The misery of those two lost finals after such a tremendous season stays with me still. All I ever wanted was for Wednesday to win the F.A. Cup once in my lifetime but a. The trophy’s been down valued now & b. We’re obviously not going to manage it while the likes of Manchester City & others put out there A team and still get through to the later stages.
