  1. All winnable- derby away look toughest on paper but confident that we'll do them

    So, if (fanciful I know) we were to win all our remaining games, would that give us a top two spot at the end of the season?


    Sadly, I don't think so.

    Looking at the other teams run ins, I think Burnley and Hull will take the top two, even if we win every game.

    Might get 3rd or 4th, if we won every game (which we probably won't)

  2. He is easily one of our best managers of recent history.

    with us now being rich can we find a way to keep him, otherwise he will be snapped up by another championship club and is guaranteed to get six points from us.

  3. I would be happy with "Only stay up for a couple of seasons, win the league cup or FA cup, play in Europa league then go back down? "


    Either option is guaranteed to have people bitching about our Manager.

    He will be a hero for taking us up, then when we lose to Chelsea it will be all his fault and people will be calling for his neck.


    At least with a cup win he will be in charge for a little longer...

  4. As someone who doesn't live in Sheffield I quite like the international matches. It is a chance to support a team with top players (in theory), in a pub where everyone supports the same team.


    And we beat a team away from home who lost to a 118th minute goal against the World Cup Finalists, so yes, this was an excellent result.

  5. I would like Jones to remain in charge, almost as an experiment, we've changed managers loads since i've been watching Wednesday and apart from short term boost when everyone is behind the new man, it doesn't really seem to have made much difference.


    We are always told that stability breeds success, so I would like us to give it a go.

    That is my thoughts as well.

    We have tried chopping and changing managers for the past 18 years, why not try the same manager for that amount of time.

    I couldn't really care less if it is Jones or someone else, just stop changing managers every time we go on a bad run.

    Have we always had poor managers who have deserved to be fired? If so, why do we keep having poor managers? Do we have a problem scouting managers? Perhaps we should fix this first.

    We have tried the changing managers every 5 minutes, and it hasn't worked. Perhaps its time to try something different?

  6. All I am saying, is if we sack Jones, then fast forward 12 months or so and we will be in the exact same situation.


    We have been doing this for so long now, and it doesn't work. Short term, yes it will probably help, long term, it will probably makes things worse.


    But I will tell you what if it makes you happy, sack Jones, replace him, but please please please, whoever you replace him with get 100% behind him, through good times and bad (and there will probably be more bad than good), and stick with him for 5 years +.


    As things currently stand, why would a good manager want to come and manage us, when they know full well they will be out of a job in year or two.





    Saying things like that might raise suspicion that you are an alternative login name used by me. :ph34r:  :laugh:

    lol, not many Jones supporters left now....

  7. What's the point in sacking him?

    Whoever replaces him will go on a bad run at some point, probably within the next 12 month's, then everyone will be calling for him to be sacked as well.

    Its the same vicious circle that's been going on for the past 15/20 years!

  8. This is quite shameful, charging one group of fans 125% extra is out of order.

    Maybe if anyone has any contacts at sky they could probably ask Middlesborough on your behalf, and I think it would make quite a reasonable story,

    Also, it will give them something to talk about during the game.

  9. Now that the promotion euphoria has died down a little, in a strange sort of way I am slightly disapointed. I was really looking forward to a trip to wembley.

    I guess I will just have to postpone it until next year - save the money for that!
