    I've been myself mate. It wasn't good. No doubt. My point is do we appoint one of the available managers with not much of a CV? Or do we wait. I'm not saying either way is right, but when bully was doing ok, the list was full of has been failures. The list hasn't changed. A bad appointment could be disastrous.

    As a reasonable sized football club its about time we went after other clubs managers and not try and be honourable and only look at out of work ones.

    I wanted to say "massive" club, but at present we don't act like one.

    Like all Owls I'm bloody frustrated with the lack of leadership from the top.

    So please Mr Chairman act now and go and get a top quality manager by using some of the compensation we got for Bruce and stop being Mr Nicey Nicey and do.

     to others what has been done to us.

    I don't give a throw about other clubs losing their manager to us, all I care about is my club!!!

    I think most would agree we need a manager. The problem is, nothings changed since cabbage head left in terms of who's available. Should we jump in and appoint somebody we're not sure about or is it worth sticking with Bully until the right man comes along. There's a lot of hissy fitting in here tonight but if we lose our heads we could make a disastrous appointment.

    No hissy fitting my friend.Those of us that were unfortunate to go to the game today endured an abject performance from both players and "management"alike.

    Yes QPR were dirty, cheating scrubbers, yes the referee was diabolical but the team with more desire and with a manager with more nouse won the day.

    We lacked leadership both on and off the pitch and any opposition manager watching that display will know exactly how to beat us in future.

    As much as I love Bully he is not the man to lead us and our Chairman must act now before we lose ground on the top six teams.My opinion only, but I believe with the right man in charge we have a squad more than capable of having a real go this season.

    What on earth was Jos playing at leaving him out all season? Glad it’s sorted now but we could be comfortably in the top half if he’d played every game. Probably the best keeper in the league, we’re lucky to have him 

    THIS!!!!


  4. What a great week we have had.Our long awaited manager is here and already having an affect.3 new signings with pace to add competition to those areas/players we all know have been weak areas but it seems it is having the desired affect on said players.

    Positive coverage on radio and television and 3 points to boot.

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend my fellow Owls.

    Dare to dream!!!

  5. Really disappointing news for the club, the players themselves  and fans alike, but deep down I suspect most of us are far from surprised.

    Given this and the Winnall setback we the fans really need to get behind the lads who do pull on the shirt and do our bit and hope that the young ones continue to develop, the senior pro's like Tom Lees regain their confidence and Jos along with DC can find one or two gems from abroad or the lower leagues who can improve the squad on what will be a very tight budget in January.

    Although it pains me to say it, we the fans, must not make comparisons with anything the scrubbers from S2 may or may not achieve this season as this will simply heap more pressure on players and management alike who right now have enough on three plate.

    Let's give Jos time to work and develop the young ones, their is much talent within the U18's and U23's and I just have a sneaky feeling that in 12-18 months time we will have a team of homegrown talent to be proud of.

  6. Afraid to say I am one of those to leave early when it's a midweek match as I don't live in Sheffield and need to avoid the traffic as I have to get up at 3.30am for work the next morning.

    So please be more understanding of those of us that travel a fair distance and don't work a 9 to 5 job but still make the effort to support our team and buy season tickets.

    'Swans have lost their identity as they stand on the brink'

    A winless run of seven matches meant Swansea were starting a match in the relegation zone for the first time since 3 March; the afterglow of their initial transformation under Carlos Carvalhal fading rapidly.

    The Swans were bottom of the Premier League and seemingly destined for relegation when the Portuguese was appointed in December and his impact was immediate, with a run of five wins in nine league games lifting them out of the bottom three.

    However, Carvalhal's side had become devoid of confidence in recent weeks, scoring only two goals in their sequence of seven games without victory.

    The home side pressed their opponents at times - fashioning a couple of efforts on goal from Andy King and Sam Clucas - but after they fell behind, such determination looked more like desperation.

    The sight of the Swans' players aimlessly lumping long balls into Southampton's penalty area was indicative not only of their dismal form this season, but of the way in which the Welsh side - once renowned for their attractive playing style - have lost their identity.

    Swansea have flirted with relegation too frequently in recent campaigns and, after the constant changing of managers and upheaval off the field, their seven-season stay in the Premier League looks like it is coming to an end.

    Serves the bar stewards right!!!!
