  1. And the bottle to stand up to bully boy Ashley. Never paid full price for anything in his life the fatcunt.
  2. At least Bruce identified the areas we were weak in and made signings that a lot of us agree with, as well as extending the contracts of Lee and Westwood and releasing some of the dead wood. He's leaving us in a better position player-wise than we were in when he came, the fat Judas bstard
  3. The bit about causing 18k of damage to a rental property then refusing to pay for the damage despite the fact he'd earned loads of money showed what a c0ck he is. Fell out with every manager except Steve Coppell but never his fault. You'd think he was Messi the way he talks about himself.
  4. I remember it well, poopydoo Alan Sunderland. Mick Lyons scored a header from the edge of the box or so it seemed.
  5. One of our previous chairmen, might have been Eric Taylor, used to pick potential new signings up at the train station then drive into Derbyshire to get to the ground so he obviously thought the same as you!
  6. I never understand why some of our fans side with Di Canio over the Alcock incident. Richards and Wilson may have made mistakes but both served us well and played a part in a great era for us when we won our only major trophy in nearly a hundred years, whilst Di Canio totally shafted us for his own gain. When we signed him he was on strike at Celtic so we knew what type of person we were getting. He was desperate to get away from us and went back to Italy straight after the incident. Whether we tried to contact him or not, he was employed by us and should have returned to face the music. Theres no comparison with Cantona as he was at one of the biggest clubs in the world and wanted to stay there. Di Canio's antics and the fact we lost so much money on him played a big part in our demise over the next few years. It seems to me that some football fans will accept players treating them like sh!t if they're talented and exciting but then belittle lesser players who genuinely care and give 100%.
  7. Totally agree. Absolute c0ck who treated us with total contempt.
  8. Love these threads. I grew up with stories of Strange, Leach and Marsden as well as Len Hutton from my grandad, and Dooley, Peter Swan and Ron Springett from my dad. My stories would be more about the adventures on away days in the 80's than the football but I've Been lucky to see some great players since the mid 70's. The 60's seems to have been a great time to watch Wednesday though with characters like Megson, Fantham, Layne and Swan (obviously apart from the betting scandal) in our side.
  9. Merson tells a story that when he got subbed in that game, he was walking down the tunnel and a Wednesday fan threw a fiver at him and told him to get himself a pint. Merson said "if I had to watch this shyyte every week I'd have to be pi$$ed"
  10. Walker's consistency was amazing and like Roland, never seemed to have a bad game.
  11. He had an interview but decided against it. I think they appointed Warnock instead.
  12. Warhurst was fantastic in the semi away at Blacburn.
  13. When Gazza was 10 he was looking after his mates younger brother when he ran in the road and was killed. He blamed himself for his death and says this has always affected him. Must have contributed to the problems he had later in life.
  14. He only started 11 games and 2 of those were in the cup when they played their reserves. Most of those appearances he was a late sub.
  15. Doesn't make any sense. He hardly played for them last season, why would they want him in the division above?
  16. Strange. I thought it was Ian Rush. It happened straight from the kick off so he would have been one of the furthest forward, especially with his pace. A centre back pairing of Lyons and Walker would have been amazing. Loved him when I was a kid and met him at the 150th dinner. Think he lives in New Zealand now.
  17. I would have loved to see Hutchinson play in the eighties, he would've fitted right in. He's a toned-down version of a warrior because you can't tackle these days but if he'd played in the eighties he'd have been a right nutcase.
  18. Wilder doesn't sign players who aren't British.
  19. Definitely. Wasn't fantastic last year and no better this year. Don't think we need to improve that much to have a great chance next season. Need to keep Hector and Westwood and add some pace.
  20. My thoughts exactly. I never watch the prem now. If we got promoted I would rather keep roughly the same team, take the beatings and get relegated with loads of dosh that could then be used to subsidise the cost of everything going forwards - the youth set up, ground improvements, the community side of the club, ticket prices, even merchandise. Keep the money within the club and for the benefit of the fans rather than spunking it on foreign mercenaries who will be no use back in the championship. Take the prem's money and then stick 2 fingers up at them. It could help us run the club properly for years.
