  1. It’s vulgar They should just let the “ big” clubs just have their own little super league like their owners wanted They are ruining football anyway Cost of living crisis to impact the world and you read that I admired the supporters who fought against it but are they really “ their clubs”? Morally they are but in the real world they aren’t Ok this is PSG but it’s naive to think this won’t happen in principle to other “ big” clubs later And Real Madrid opposing it apparently? You couldn’t make it up
  2. It will never happen and I guess there are arguments against it but for me hypothetically it would be everyone on a level playing field Everyone with a fighting chance Success not.determined by which club has the wealthiest owners An end to predictability Money is the reason I’ve lost a lot of interest in the game . It’s vulgar , I long for the 70s and 80s a time that I know will never return
  3. It’s always a good thing when clubs want your players The time to worry is when clubs are not interested in them
  4. This is one of the reasons Jack Charlton is so revered by older owls fans Back in the day he was a manager on the rise after doing fantastically at Middlesbrough and yet he dropped two divisions to take over a club in free fall with no money and gates of under 10000 Its an incredible story when you think about it The worlds changed and money has taken over. Managers talk about wanting a challenge. Most of them don’t know what a challenge is I like Dyche a lot he has done great things at Burnley but him coming to Wednesday ain’t going to happen I don’t think. That would be his hard earned reputation on the line In any case I’m happy with DM for now
  5. It’s easy to pick faults with still shots Football is different in real time To be honest the difference between the sides are in those shots Roberts and Clarke were a class above
  6. That’s awful news Michael Lyons a leader of men if ever there was one
  7. I’m excited it’s better than finishing 18th This is what football is all about, seeing your team in the big games.
  8. All things considered Wednesdays greatest manager of my lifetime Wrote to him as a 15 year old offering some suggestions on who he should pick and how he should set up ( like yer do at 15) He replied thanking me for my letter and said he would consider it. Then told me to “ keep backing the lads “ I put the letter in my Wednesday scrap book . Sadly over the years the cheap adhesive I used has made it unreadable Big Jack Great manager Top man
  9. Burnley 5-0 FA cup QF 1983 What a night and what an atmosphere To younger ones it seems a little obscure perhaps but that night was probably my favourite Hillsborough night You have to remember this was when football wasn’t ruled and ruined by money and the FA Cup was up there with winning the league Fantastic night
  10. You know what…. It’s been a long old season with lots of frustrations along the way We should just push everything aside. Stop all the negative stuff and get 100% behind the lads Monday This season could still be one of our most memorable if we end up winning at Wembley If it goes pear shaped everyone can have their say Tuesday UTO
  11. I would never settle for a defeat no matter who we are playing But… I think if we had gone toe to toe with them and lost by the odd goal I don’t think that’s too bad as it’s only half time. What has freaked everybody out is the performance and the worry they could stifle us again Its the performance that has fueled the over reaction on here not the score It will be a totally different game at Hillsborough and I’m still confident
  12. Very nearly our player when Big Jack was manager. Great player. Was part of the most balanced midfields I’ve ever seen back in the 80s
  13. Great post Odd what we remember int it! This was a great time to be a Wednesdayite but it was a difficult time for the country. Strikes were happening left right and centre and as a consequence a lot of our achievements around that time were often not reported on much at all It’s hard finding anything on the win over Blackburn or the replays with Arsenal Sad really Cant take yer memories though Always remember Big Jacks proud beaming face in the stand after the game
  14. This It baffles me when people say their is no room With vision and imagination architecture and design can do amazing things these days It doesn’t want a patch up it needs a proper plan Ok parking may always be a problem Imagination and architecture gets you a stand like the North which is a thing of beauty , around 60 years old and still , in my opinion, one of the best stands in the country
