  1. Give it a couple of years I think this is quite likely. No problem with me.
  2. Im slightly worried that our squad isn't strong enough to be the foundations of next years premier league outfit.
  3. For me this has the right attributes, a nice build up, loud in your face riff and good lyrics. Too Tough to Die - Revered
  4. In fairness, most of our fans said they would judge him on a clean slate from the start of this season. He also finished the campaign last season on a great run in the last 10 games which cannot be forgotten. Lets see what he can do with this squad. Wigan were always going to be a real tough game away on the first game of the season. I just hope the players are going to stay motivated through defeat with all the off pitch issues.
  5. As long as the situation is handled professionally and KW is treated with the respect he deserves throughout a re-introduction to the team or through a transfer out of club. He has put in some outstanding performances for us since he joined and has earned a right to be treated in this way. It is not looking good however and I don't want to see him go, but the sign of the times shows that we will have to hope our two rough diamonds polish to be able to fill the big void he leaves us with.
  6. They will all be on small wages and have less expectation of playing which makes the squad size less important when they account for a reasonable proportion.
  7. On a positive, Jos is right that effectively 7 youth players does refresh the squad and gives us new options and youthful, feisty competition. Not expecting much this season but hopefully a few of the new first teamers can develop and show why many managers have been successful combining youth with experience.
  8. 1. Middlesborough 2. Leeds 3. Stoke 4. Derby 5. WBA 6. Forest 7. Norwich 8. Reading 9. Sheffield United 10. Swansea 11. Wigan 12. Aston Villa 13. Bristol City 14. Millwall 15. Sheffield Wednesday 16. Preston North End 17. Brentford 18. Hull City 19. Ipswich Town 20. Blackburn Rovers 21. QPR 22. Birmingham City 23. Rotherham 24. Bolton
  9. Hutchinson Lees Pudil - no question. However if the boss wanted to play Hutchinson in midfield, Jud Thorniley would be in there on the left of Lees for me over Van Aken, think he is going to be pretty solid and this could be a great year of development for him.
  10. We had two nearly great seasons in terms of points and league position, watching some great players but unfortunately fell narrowly short. With football league financial rules, we will now have to be content with mid table average performances. That doesn't exclude the fact that recruitment has been below par, football style from September 2017 - now has been unentertaining and that the fans are now being exploited for more income. Nobody is expected to have the best recruitment all the time, teams are not expected to consistently churn out brilliant football and no-one expects these premium prices to be in place in 5 years time as they are precautions to help soften the impact of the previous two years. I would like to see how they forecasted the price elasticity of Wednesday fans because I am still adamant that a drop in prices and engaging marketing would turnover more revenue (who am I to say that however). It really is just a bit of a 'come down' from two play off push's, but I for one am glad we went for it those years and I thoroughly understand the strains we are now put under because of them. Give it a couple of years I expect us to generate and go again.
  11. He’s not as good as he thinks he is and hopefully him and Hirst have taught the club a lesson so that when future big b0llox excel in the development squad (there will be some) and don’t want to play for us, we know how to flog them for a profit.
  12. Reach, Adthe, Joao, Dawson and Wilsmith were all good performers last season, arguably the best 5 in our squad. Joey is the only signing Jos has made and plus looks like a dressing room favourite as he was in Holland (rather handsome chap too ), so they probably deserve to model the kit. Why would they pick all the injured crop to model it when these lads tried their best week in week out for us last season?! Some owls over think way too much.
  13. Of course he wants to stay, he's picking up a pay cheque to train for 3/4 months a year. Such a shame he has not been able to keep fit and show us the talent he may have.
  14. This - and if Joost can't get to grips with playing in the championship, swap Pudil in. Thorniley or Venancio (if signed) for Hutchinson when he inevitably gets injured. Pelupessy for Lee (or a new signing) when he gets injured.
  15. If we can chop a striker in to fund the majority of the value required (highly unlikely), then great - get him bought. However, nobody can tell me that he is a better finisher than Winnall, Hooper, Rhodes, Nuhiu, Fletcher, FF and Joao. Within the last 10 games of the season, we were creating more chances and taking more. Weren't we the highest or second highest goal scorers in the league on the last 10 games? If we are prepared to fork out £7m this transfer window, spend it on support for the strikers we have already got. No brainer, the lads we have got can do it - they just need more consistent performers behind them and internal competition which is already there when fully fit.
  16. Matty Lawless‏Verified account @mattylawless More Matty Lawless Retweeted Mirror Football "The very impressive @ReeceBurke attracting a lot of attention. Sheffield Wednesday in pole position with a loan but Rangers, Leeds, Aston Villa and Reading are interested in a permanent deal. He’s a great prospect and, importantly, a homegrown lad - I hope he stays at West Ham." Hopefully they value him for a future prospect and want to keep him which would therefore favour us for next season. Would be an astute signing and sounds a good fit to the strategy set out from Jos and Chansiri.
  17. Well they should have known due to the farsical handling of this seasons kit that that would be the case and to maximise profit for the future, they should do their best to market the new kit that they’ve told us is imminent *insinuated was imminent
  18. Can we flog him now for £6m like Bolton got for the kitchen appliance?
  19. Be great if he recreates his form for us if we signed him, but can you imagine the uproar if he didn't produce. If Nuhiu moves on and we ship out Winnall for a fee plus loan out Rhodes, i'd be happy enough.
  20. Jos has said a few times we will be playing many systems next season, which I am behind as I believe it gives us flexibility when facing certain teams. I can imagine Reach will fit in certain formations better than others. My argument to those who think his best position is CM is that if this is the case, there are so many better CM's in the Championship.
  21. Yep. Partly due to his credit, partly due to the lack of quality English CB's at present.
  22. Tom Lees will never be half the centre back that Harry Maguire is. I think Lees is a good CB but for me he has been inconsistent at times and still needs someone half decent next to him to have a good game.
