  1. Very good appointment IMO, English manager, just what we need and I’m looking forward to see what we can achieve. Just one word of caution; please let’s not have any over-hyped love-ins with the new manager and then bin him off when we lose a couple. Let’s try to excercise some patience and get behind the management and squad. PS he’s not an owls fan, never has been, neither is his wife, or his family etc, etc. He will do a good job though.
  2. Chelsea are a team of very talented individuals no question, however, we got found out last night on the basics as much as anything; they were faster, hungrier, harder than we were. The point is these last 3 qualities can be improved by individual application/discipline of the players and the quality of coaching. That’s before you have to spend any money so that would be my starting point. The players should ask themselves; do they want it or not? Are they up for it or not? Do they want to improve or not? i quite like Nuhiu as an option off the bench but when he came on last night he looked like real Sunday morning player. The physical differences were incredible. I’m not having a go, he wasn’t the only one, but it needs to be said.
  3. Morning all. Having slept on it I woke up this morning as pi**ed off as I was last night. The fans turned up, as always, but the players didn’t. We never looked like getting near them, gave the ball away as soon as we had any possession, but, what really surprised me is, we were out fought and out muscled for every single ball. I thought a lot would step up because it was live on tv but thought we were very timid. Dont get me started about the atmosphere and their fans, welcome to the Prem folks, that’s what we’ve got to look forward to IF we are promoted. Not for me thanks, I’d rather stay in the Championship.
  4. Lads will come out fighting for this one I think and stuff these plastic cockneys. 0-3 to the wizards
  5. Great OP and also some very good points made regarding petitioning MP’s etc. Surely messers Caborn, Betts, Blunkett etc will have something to say about it? lots of talk this week about fans being ripped off with credit charges for season tickets, maybe Saturday KO’s could also be put on the agenda. Fans charter kind of thing?
  6. Absolute disgrace this decision. If you were ever in any doubt how money has changed this game then here it is. How can such an iconic fixture be moved at will like this? Sunday’s and lunchtimes are bad enough but this stinks.
  7. I remember the quarter final away at Burnley before the epic Arsenal games. We couldn’t get tickets for the away end so my dad got us tickets on the Burnley kop (along with many other Owls fans). We were in our early teens then and what an eye opener that was! There was scrapping from the moment we arrived and if I recall correctly the game was delayed to get the owls fans out of the home end and shoved (literally) onto the terrace with the other Wednesday fans. Bob Bolder saved a penalty and we took them back to Hillsborough for the replay. Happy Days
  8. This could well be true, we all have a bad day at work from time to time, and you don’t know what sh*t they’ve been dealing with before you met them. Personally I’ve never had any problems with stewards wherever I’ve travelled ( and I always have a good drink before the game). In general, life is much more pleasant, relaxed and enjoyable if we treat each other with kindness and respect, IMO. Looking forward to a good game tomorrow
  9. The intrinsic problem with social media is its anonymity. People behave in a way they wouldn’t normally. Much more aggressive and thoughtless.
  10. Exactly. I know I wouldn’t do it. Stewarding that is.
  11. Firstly, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all Owls fans wherever you are. Some great performances lately have given us some welcome Christmas cheer! Just recently I have witnessed an increase in the levels of verbal aggression directed towards male and female stewards on the kop (can’t speak for other areas) which I personally find unacceptable. These ladies and gents are simply carrying out the jobs they are paid to do to keep everyone safe at the match and I feel they deserve much more courtesy and respect. They don’t make the rules, they are paid to enact them, just like we all have to do in our own jobs every day, and absolutely no one should have to face such abuse as part of their job. Therefore, could I ask that, before you start hurling mindless abuse at the stewards, you think about the consequences of your actions and instead engage them in normal respectful conversation? I don’t think that’s too much to ask.
  12. Unfortunately “we” do not have “our” Wednesday back. This is still owned by a Thai businessman/family/consortium(?). Great performance today and yes I was there. Disappointing how it played out but that’s life! Roll on Birmingham
