  1. Nobody hates a playing doing a solid job and playing well for the club. Anyone who thinks that is a bit weird. It's just a discussion, people will talk about positives and negatives of the club, players, team performance and whatever else goes on down at Hillsborough. Thinking that some people prefer to be right and hope certain players fail or we lose is nothing more than fantasy.
  2. Derby and Bristol are hitting a 1.6pts per game average now. For us to beat them to a play off spot we would need to average around 2.1pts per game for the remainder of the season. So it begs the question do we have a squad capable of automatic promotion form. I think we do and Bruce is the man to get them firing. I predict we’ll sneak in to the play offs last game of the season, just like the pigs who drop out of the automatic position. We play them in the semi’s and smash them over both legs. Then we beat boro in the final.
  3. I bet he loves a finger up the back channel though
  4. But at that point he was our star player, on the back of a great season coming in to a season where we all expected to push for promotion again. Selling a player under those circumstances would have been bad business. We all know we should sell players when they fetch the most value, but that's all hindsight.
  5. Yeah. all the seats empty in the chelsea end and yet one decides to go to all the trouble of buying a season ticket, going to a dozen away games just to get the points to be able to get a ticket in the Wednesday end. Strong logic right there. Even the touts outside were saying there was no chance of getting a ticket for the away end! Some of our fans are stupid as fizz, saw one lad trying to push a young kid out the way in the ground, nearly knocked him over, young kid must have been no more than 10. Best part was the bloke who must have been with the kid, he was big unit and had h
  6. I really wish he had been able to play alongside Loovens, even just for the 1 season. His game would have come on so much more alongside a such a good leader and game reader. However, he is still a great prospect for us and he did well yesterday
  7. Things you might not have seen or hesrd then: racist comments aimed at Odoi way over the top sexism about the lineswoman the many coins thrown at the Chelsea players after their penalty Overall great support, but there are some absolute weapons too. Funnily it always seems the sorts who would poo a brick if they walked in a boxing gym and laced up
  8. Everyone wants players like that. But players are not robots. i Don’t get your last comment either. Seems you’ve got a lot of emotion tied up in your point of view. Its just a discussion.
  9. It means your knowledge is lacking, what you post it is often rehashed fence sitting googled tripe. As per the 'rules' then, the content of your post is ballax. Do you even go to the games?
  10. Yes better, who do you think when both fit is the better of the two? Do you think Reach is a good left back? Is that his best position?
  11. Ah another stupid post from the resident copy and paste expert.
  12. Another way of looking at the Reach Vs Forestieri debate is to ask that if Lee, Hutch, Bannan, Hooper, Forestieri were all fit, does Reach even start in the position he's played over the last season? Personally i think he's either pushed out to the left midfield or even dropped to left back.
  13. Joey played 90%+ of the games during jos' tenure here. Now i'm not saying Joey is as good as Reach, but what i am saying is that there's more to consider than just how many minutes a player has been on the pitch. Kieron Lee would keep Reach out of the side every day of the week, if he was fit, so would FF, so would BB too. Ideally we keep them all and they all stay fit and we win the league by 20+ points. But that ain't happening. Quoting minutes played is clinging on and a blinkered view too, imo. £14m for FF is great money, whether he's play
  14. You really think Reach is better than Forestieri? We've hardly been playing well the last 18 months have we? But before that, we seemed to be doing pretty well and actually played like an attacking team, that others feared. Coincidence, causation, correlation; whichever it is there's no doubting FF has a positive impact on how we play. I am sure there are players in the division below who haven't missed a minute of football for their team, but that doesn't mean they're worth us buying. Keeping all 3 would be ideal, because they're our most valuable assets
  15. He's a much better player than Reach, genuine game changer in this division and there aren't many of those around. Footballers are not robots either, they need a good man manager to get the best out of them, that first season Carlos got it right (from November onwards) with FF, 2nd season we lost momentum and Jos would have had no clue how to get the best out of him. There's a reason the club value him so highly, as when he's fit and managed properly, he's unplayable. That said, every player has their price when the FA's impending embargo hangs over the c
  16. Come on, it's obvious... Sell a book and a season ticket for when we get to the Premier League
  17. Watched in last night, absolutely loved it. I have had some amazing times following Wednesday and being a fan, the club does mean very much to me and even though over the years ive had spells of not attending or only going to a few games, i still class myself as a huge Wednesday fan as it has been a big part of my life.
  18. Went to watch Leeds Vs Millwall a few years ago, at half time in the bar and the scores came on the TV, we were losing, without thinking in a raised voice i moaned. Had a bunch of knuckle draggers all slowly turn round 'are you wednesday?' 'Yes, yes i am, but i hate Millwall so....' Even my mates slowly moved away from me, thought i was going to get a beating then, but managed to avoid it somehow.
  19. If Steve Bruce takes us to the Premier League he will be the best and most iconic manager of my generation, even surpassing Big Ron The task at hand is huge, but one i genuinely think he is capable of. Success needs to be measured by more than just points on the board though, the club needs improvement across the board and i think he's the man to really get us pulling in the right direction. Ironically up until he got the job here i've always wanted to dislike him, for that 97th minute Fergie time header and more recently pipping us with Hull, but he's a likeable guy.
