  1. Big Jack’s first game was the midweek after the Chesterfield game which he famously watched from the North whilst considering the job. In his first game, at Exeter, we lost. Also worth mentioning that back in the 30’s Billy Walker was unbeaten in his first 16 games as Wednesday boss.
  2. No way we are staying up. We'll be relegated with or without the 12 points deduction.
  3. Take away the Bannan penalty and the QPR own goal and we've scored one goal from open play in the last seven games. To call it a "strike force" is an abuse of the English language.
  4. I doubt you'd find anyone at the moment who would actually take the job.
  5. Same old failings as the last few seasons....just relying on two or three players. Have them out injured and we're hopeless. For the most part the players brought in during the recent window simply aren't good enough.
  6. Those years in the old Third, 1975 to 1980, were probably the best years I've ever had supporting Wednesday. The camaraderie on away trips in particular was fantastic....never remotely equalled since. And after Big Jack came even though we were dire for a long while still there was this total belief amongst us that great days lay just ahead. Didn't we have the chance to have brought in both Brian Clough and Tommy Docherty on separate occasions? History would have been so different had we chanced with either.
  7. Think the rot set in after Alan Brown walked out in February 1968 when we appointed as manager a guy (Jack Marshall) who didn't want the job in the first place. The irony was that our best two results of the late 60's, the 5-4 against Man Utd and the cup win at Leeds, were both achieved when he was in charge. I've also always felt that whilst it's true the last day defeat against Man City ultimately sent us down in 1970 their fixture congestion (they won both the League Cup and the Cup Winners Cup) did us no favours either. Right at the end of the season they played both Sunderland
  8. Thames Road (or The Aspect Arena in you want) - Concord Rangers. Been there!
  9. Peter Wicks in goal for us that day (at Liverpool) and Andy Burgin made his one and only league appearance a week after scoring a last minute own goal in the cup at Everton to take it to a replay....which we lost.
  10. Very sad news. Remember him being the sort of player who looked at home in virtually any position on the pitch. A real terrier of a player. RIP Johnny.
  11. A real colossus of that mid-60's Wednesday side and a real big hero of mine. RIP Gerry.
