  1. As someone who just missed out on the good times in the top flight and having to endure several torrid periods over the years (some really truly awful football - a 0-0 with Bradford springs to mind), I just want a club that's not continuously embroiled in drama. 


    Personally, I'd love this scenario but then you would have to lower your expectations. We should generate enough gate revenue to build a decent squad but if that takes a few years in L1 focussing on a max wage/maintenance/other expenses that comprises of 75%. A good proportion of the remainder can be focussed on building up the foundations (lower leagues links, scouting, etc) to ensure we're moving forward on strong foundations. I'd like to see a president voted in by the fans every few years (votes based on a share basis).


    OF course you'd have to find a way to generate the initial funds to takeover (whether its a number of smaller investors, etc).

  2. They've brought in some creative talent to add to a good core team and have beaten everyone in the league so far. We outperformed them in the first half but need to explore how to keep that going in the second half. Definitely need an added striker but four points from two tricky away ties and a former prem team at home. I'll take that.

  3. 1) What was the first Wednesday match you can remember ever going to?

    Sheffield Wednesday vs Everton - We lost 2-0 I think.


    2) Who was your Wednesday hero growing up?

    Waddle. Who else?


    3) Who's the greatest ever Wednesday player?

    Roland Nillson 


    4) What's the best match you've ever been to?

    Wycombe 2-0. Never experienced anything like that at Hillsborough with 4 side all Weds.

    5) What's the best away day you've ever had?


    Tricky split Leicester 4-1, Leeds 3-2, Burnley 7-2 but it has to be Cardiff. 

    6) What's the best football ground you've ever been to?

    Old Trafford 


    7) What's the best goal you have ever seen at a Wednesday match?

    Chris Brunt vs Leeds. What an effort.


    8 )  What's the best ever Sheffield Wednesday atmosphere you've experienced?

    Wycombe as above.

    9) Who's been the best ever Wednesday defender?

    Nigel Pearson or Guy Branston (for his ability to clean everything out). Honourable mention to Madjid Bougherra for the song.


    10) Where's it all gone?


    It's always changing. I remember watching us draw 0-0 with Bradford and thinking this is awful. We needs to move in a 5 year cycle with Utd and every changing fortunes. I think success needs to be defined - I'd say it's to be entertained. I'd rather us stay in the championship playing attractive football with reasonable prices and promote a youth policy than go up and see us have 20% possession and 3 shots all game.

  4. It's not just the form table, its the manner we've gone about each game. We've out performed the top clubs in this division. With a few astute signings in January, it could be a huge boost. The EFL case will cast a shadow but until we've actually been punished I will keep looking at the top of the table. Hoping Leeds continue to bottle it.

    Hardest result to play for is a draw.


    Their keeper time wasting from the get go. Plus trying to be clever at the penalty.


    350 fans.


    Lee Johnson.


    Instantly forgettable game, but I'll take that result and move on to Stoke on Boxing Day.


    Safe (incredibly long) journey home, Lee.





    Wasn't just their keeper. Watch when Bannan struck the ball. I spotted at least 5 Bristol city players within a few yards of him. They came here to stifle us but we played well given the tactics against us. Keep this form going and we can beat anyone.
