    He did indeed. And appeared on my screen to be moving at more than 2 frames or second.

    Bannan & Forestieri Overrated?

    Both individually fantastic players, but suffering from a serious lack of quality around them, and a manager that has unfortunately lost the plot.

    Playing it out from the back

    Agree entirely. What’s the point in having big men up front, if we keep tippy tapping it around the back, just asking for pressure to be put on us. Tonight was the most obvious example, but this trying to play it out as if we’re Barcelona has cost us many goals this season.
  4. One of the issues we had under Carlos was predictability. Certainly not the case with Jos!

    Wednesday - V - L**ds United (OMDT thingy)

    I half agree. Going forward he was excellent. Defensively out of position at times. Reminds me of a young Gareth Bale- I genuinely think he could be that good.

    Wednesday - V - L**ds United (OMDT thingy)

    Very lucky to get a point. Can’t pick on any individuals, most were poor. Felt like we were chasing shadows when they had the ball, and panicking when we had it. Referee gave them a free kick anytime one of our players so much as farted. Special mention for Penney though. What a player he’s going to be!

    I genuinely believe we’re going straight up this season. We’re only 4pts off the top, yet we’ve been playing pretty badly- especially our defence. Thing is, it’s much easier to train a defence to tighten up, than it is to train a team to score goals. Once those clean sheets start appearing, and with Forestieri and Hooper knocking on the door, we will rocket up the table.

    Jordan Thorniley.

    Hes a star in the making. I can see him being a defender for one of the top 6 PL teams in the next 5 years. I just sincerely hope it’s with us!

    I think Jos was right to drop him, but I also think he needs to be brought back in very soon. He’s an emotional player and needs to be loved. 3 games is long enough to have a positive impact on his work ethic. Any more and it’ll start to have a negative effect. ps. Fair play to Bannan showing him some love and giving him a wee head rub when he won a free kick near the end!
  10. Midfield today virtually non existent. We either need to make a change at HT or start playing hoofball to the big men up top.

    What’s this Mick McCarty attraction?

    I do really want to give Jos a chance, but it pains me to say, I think Fat Sam would be ideal for us right now.

    Is that a lesser spotted Abdi?

    A Quick Look at SWFC's Finances

    Excellent work OwlWednesday! Don’t forget that with regards to P&S, some costs such as youth development are excluded from the £39m total. But on the flip side, related party transaction revenues that exceed fair value eg. D Taxis and Elev8 are also excluded...

    We have a small squad apparently

    It’s not a small squad. Just a slightly unbalanced one.

    Sheffield Wednesday 1 : 1 Hull (sort of OMDT)

    Anyone have any links to a rivulet of the match?
