  1. Probably takes less than half an hour to get from Mable's to Shepherds bush (imagine Victoria from Euston then Central from Oxford Circus?). It's doable and the atmosphere will be better in Mable's than anywhere else in London
  2. Heard of this great player from Watford called Almen Abdi. Not played in a while but he could do a job.
  3. Feel sorry for Fox. Generally he's outclassed on the pitch, especially in matches like today where he was up against players who cost 10 times what he did. But he usually puts in a good shift and there's not many times where he seems to just give up (which Matias usually does on the wing). He's never really made any massive clangers either, just the constant drip of minor mistakes and poor decisions. He's obviously not what we need long term and even he must know that. At the end of the day though, he's a Wednesday player, and when he's on the pitch there's literally nothing to gain from booing him (as people did a few months back when he came on as a sub) or the constant groaning when he's on the ball. I really don't get what goes through the heads of people who have a go at players
  4. From watching that video you wouldn't think that Wednesday are actually the most successful club in Yorkshire and 4 times champions of England whereas United won their only title when Queen Victoria was on the throne and the last trophy they won was before the invention of television.
  5. I think (hope) we're not at as much risk as they are. Especially as they knowingly broke the rules by singing a player whilst under embargo. My understanding is that we've been much more co-operative. Although I am scared of finding out what exactly we did to sign Iorfa, Aarons and Lazaar in January when we were told we had no money.
  6. Abdi, he tried to pick up a football again.
  7. if it were to all go wrong, would the game get postponed or forfeited?
  8. My slight worry is that going up would require us to beat Norwich and Leeds. Don't want them dropping points
  9. Love to be optimistic, but think the draws against reading and millwall were the killers. Even if we went on a great run those 4 dropped points will be the albatross round our neck.
  10. Is this true? We beat Millwall at home in August! Haven't played 6 matches against London teams since then. (Just one - a travesty at QPR)
  11. I think it really depends - Some teams, like Hull or Sunderland, went down and had terrible seasons afterwards because the entire team was shot. I think the same will happen to Huddersfield when they're in the Championship next season.
  12. I'm always in and out of the place like a swat team, no intention of ever seeing anything other than the path from the train station to the stadium.
  13. Can't imagine this one selling out at all. It's a right dog of a journey back and the stadium isn't remotely worth visiting.
  14. If we can't put this game away we've got no chance of going up this season
  15. 2-0 Wednesday. Our first league win by more than a 1 goal margin.
  16. The problem is - the club hasn't dealt with them. Constantly it's the same fans in the same part of that stadium. Last year there was homophobic chanting from them towards the Wednesday end. Video of this racist chanting shows it's the exact same people. Family club of the year or not the reality is they've done nothing.
  17. Probably unpopular to say but I think there's something rotten with the core of our travelling fanbase. A lot of the younger fans come to matches just wanting to act like hoolies, decked out in stone island, doing coke in the toilets and thinking it's a laugh to throw things on the pitch. They're surrounded by grown men who lived through the 70s and 80s - who saw how bad hooliganism got - that just egg it on and reinforce a toxic culture. We don't tend to be involved in much violence but one day some fans will end up getting hurt and we'll all act like it's a great unexpected tragedy. Nothing can be done overnight but the club and the league need to get a grip before it all gets out of hand again. Sorry to sound like a grumpy git - I had to wait ages for a wee yesterday cause of all the key inspecting.
  18. Just had the highlights at halftime of the Southampton/Derby match on bbc one. These commentators are gonna need to learn to say Atdhe Nuhiu by the time he scores a hat trick in the final.
  19. Reckon it'll get to all season ticker holders, maybe as far as gold members.
  20. Tell you what, he's coming good now. He'll prove the doubters wrong by scoring the goal that wins the FA Cup.
  21. Now I understand why Agnew has such a terrible record as caretaker manager.
  22. a lot of players were on their arse during the Birmingham match. Wasn't sure if they were hungover from the night before though.
  23. This reminds me of some of the worst matches under Carlos. Just a bit flat and uninspired.
  24. Depends how much scrutiny the EFL have but I'm fairly sure they'd see through that. TUF is widely known to be part of the Chansiri family and if you recall when DC took over the TUF logo was all over the boards at the press conference. Of course this could all go fine, but trying to mess around with FFP in this way could end acrimoniously, especially if the EFL turn around and say it wasn't a valid deal.
