  1. You're right, now Urhoghide is getting "blooded", knows what's it's like in the trenches, and to up his game, and he may, or may not up his game. Penney was outstanding, didn't need any ''blooding", he was hauling ass out of the backfield, with the ball at his feet, knocking opponents aside and then... Why develop either Player amongst teams other than Wednesday? The U23's might be doing a lot better, if Wednesday didn't send the all best out on loan, and Wednesday just might get some young Players from within.
  2. Means what would be so wrong with a Urhoghide-Iorfa-Boerner-Penney back 4?
  3. No problem Ethel the Tree, you're a sane voice, on an insane forum. Hat's off and raise a glass to you, we do, here in the USA. We wait for your updates.
  4. I speak German, been to the BRD many, many times, don't even need a map to get around. Don't know anything about Greuter-Fuerth FC though, other than where it is. As for Penney, I remember him as a LB, running it out of the Wednesday backfield, into the oppositions' backfield, was always wondering when he'd get his goal, think it was 2016-17, maybe 2017-18, but he looked like the real deal. He ran it out, faster than a "hoof out", and, suddenly, he disappears, re-appearing in the BRD. I could see a Wednesday back 4 of Urhoghide, Iorfa, Boerner, and Penney. Keep us here in Owls Americas posted, you are a reputable source. Thanks again.
  5. Mine said..."stop drinking, it's not even noontime (Florida) and you're on your 12th, it's only a game." Yes, it is only a game, but...that was humiliating at least for the fans, and should have been for the Players too. I'll still support Wednesday though, I'm a "clapper" but not always a "happy clapper."
  6. Thanks again Ethel the Tree. I hope Shaw & Penney return to Wednesday, and eventually end up in the Squad because I think there's a Player in both of them, Shaw up front, and Penney down the left side, hope Kirby gets a spot too.
  7. Agree 100%. Sure, Wednesday would like to keep Dawson, but it's up to Dawson whether or not to accept a new contract. I don't doubt that others have their eyes on him, only Dawson can decide where he wants to play, if in fact he's getting offers. He (Dawson) has a lot to consider, because like you say, Salmonbones, the playing life of most footballers is short, got to make your money fast, and save it, because after that, you'll be on "workmans wages", if you can find a job.
  8. There's room for Lees too. I like Boerner-Iorfa in the middle of a back-4, Fox or Penney(?) left, and Palmer or Urhoghide right. Wednesday has options, across the back, right, left, and center. Be interesting to see how Monk plays these options, I don't think He'll have anything set-in-stone, and will play according to the opponent, injuries, current form of each Player, etc.
  9. They sound American, their American English is too perfect for them to have been born anywhere else, or raised at least, but in the USA, no "accent" whatsoever, well sort of an accent, a Midwestern (neutral) accent, not New England, NYC, upper Minnesota/Wisconsin, Chicago.... I like the video, just another instance of Wednesday getting more support, from overseas. There is no American "look", we are a Nation made up of all Peoples, since 1776. Like how they showed the train-ride, still wonder how they got press-passes. Like to see more, from them, if, when, and as they can attend a Wednesday match, home and/or away.
  10. Don't think anybody is interested in FF, either loaned, or sold, or even on a free.
  11. Winnall was better, in 2016-17, I think it was, both had 37 appearances and Winnall scored 14, FF scored a couple less. Then, Winnall disappears...FF is more suited to a movie role, playing the part of a footballer, rather than actually playing football.
  12. I'm 62 years old, and have to agree with you, most of the "younger generation" is of the sort which supports whomever is kicking-ass in the 1st Tier. Don't understand it myself, but then again, I'm an old guy, started being a Wednesday fan in 1970, still am today, still will be next year....."happy clapper?" yes and no, I'll always clap, but not necessarily "happy." Sorry that's off-topic, the topic being Brighton... Well, meaningless match or not. Wednesday won, and it's always better to win, than to lose, even when it "doesn't matter."
