  1. He looked like he was getting back to something like his potential for a while, but didn't quite make it on a consistent basis. Overall, I think it was the right thing to let him go as we need to look for better, though I can see him going somewhere else and being a success. A year in Scotland might be good for him.
  2. Yeah, it can take a long time for those emails to get through.
  3. And Berahino. I wouldn't be averse to us signing Ladapo, but I think there are better options going to be available this transfer window.
  4. I can't see Dawson being happy with a season sat on the bench after he's just won promotion and generally been considered the player of the season at Exeter. If that's what is offered to him, I suspect he'll be asking for a transfer and we could get some cash in to help us buy/loan 2 new keepers. Personally I'd give him another opportunity to prove himself now he's gained some confidence and more experience.
  5. Assuming he signs a contract, I'd like to see us have a plan in place to develop him and give him exposure to the first team squad in training and possibly in the odd match day squad if he's doing enough in training. Just travelling with the squad to an away game and being part of the build up would be good experience and if/when he impresses enough in training/under 23 games he should be given a chance to play a few minutes here and there. There are various examples of young players with potential getting to be part of first teams in all divisions. Cadamarteri could be one of them.
  6. Goalkeeper - I'd like to see us trying to get Gavin Bazunu on loan from Man City. I personally think Dawson would do a good job, but he'd have half of our 'support' baying for his blood at the first mistake. Maybe we should cash in on him whilst his stock is reasonably high. Defence - I'm sure Dean will sign permanently, but doubt we'd pay the asking price PNE would want for Storey. Hutch should be offered a player-coach role. Gibson has undoubted quality, but his injury record is maybe something we need to avoid. Will Boyle is another option at LCB. Midfield - There must be numerous young Prem players available to loan. Whilst asking City about Bazunu, I'd also see if we could get Lewis Fiorini who was on loan at Lincoln this season. Up front - I'd seriously consider bringing Hirst back, but fear a similar issue with our support to that of Dawson. Jayden Stockley at Charlton perhaps? I'd also look to give some of the youth players an opportunity next season. Cadamartari? Galvin? Davidson? and don't forget Brennan and Hunt.
  7. This is a big issue for me. Other areas of time wasting could be addressed by issuing cards or sin bins as suggested and 'visibly' stopping the clock would take some of the anger out of it for the fans. Wycombe (and undoubtedly others) are experts at going down injured and calling on the medics to use up time, or disrupt the flow of the game. The ref can't risk calling them out on it, so they get away with it. Allowing players to be treated on the pitch whilst the game continues, as they do in rugby, would address this. Overall, something needs to be done, as time wasting/game management is generally killing the game as a spectacle.
  8. 3-1 to The Wednesday... Please lets not go to extra time/penalties, I couldn't cope! Last home win of the season, then on to Wembley to get revenge over Wycombe.
  9. They're the obvious changes, and the ones I'd make, no matter how harsh it is on Liam. Windass might not make the full 90 minutes, but he could be replaced when required by whoever seems to be best suited to the circumstances at the time. IF there are doubts about Bannan's fitness, he could be replaced by Fizz, with Byers taking on the playmaker role. Bannan to be brought on later if needed.
  10. I think the 'scoring goals in blue and white' is Gregory's song now, how about: We've got Goerge Byers Pulling strings in blue & white We've got George Byers Saluting fellow Wednesdayites
  11. This. At the end of the day quality wins and Wycombe have very little of it.
  12. I'm glad someone else thinks that, I thought I was imagining I'd read it somewhere.
  13. We seem to have got the hang of this coming from behind thing now. I think it's safe to say we're in the play-offs now with the half-time scores here and at Plymouth.
  14. I've been keeping myself busy all morning, a bit of distraction sort of thing. Strangely though, I'm not feeling nervous today. I think it will be a tight game, but anticipate us winning the second of our last five games of the season, culminating of course with a Wembley victory. 1-0 to The Wednesday!
  15. That lends itself nicely to being a (un)safe standing area
  16. Showing Pato how to do that goal celebration... Such quick thinking.
  17. Well I enjoyed that first 15 minutes, totally worth the £10 ifollow fee, then... Still confident we'll win this though.
  18. I REALLY hope Wycombe don't make it to the play-offs, the cheating, time wasting shithouses.
