    Just Got back - Ratings

    My own 2 pennies, possibly shaped slightly by last night forestieri should never play in a front two. Playing as a two means he has to play back to goal and I don't think it suits him. He also wanders which means you have one striker on their own. If that's nuhiu, fletcher or hooper, it means it's not the most mobile of striker. If we insist on 3 at the back I'd much prefer 3-4-3 pelupessy and Hutchinson do the same sort of role, so to put both with bannan who plays quarter back to me is negative and defeats the point of having 3 in midfield. Kieran lee when fit replaces one of the first two which helps, but if there's no Lee there's no point playing 5 at the back and then these three. Palmer was ok last night, didn't do anything astoundingly bad or good, but to go into the season with him at rwb screams that were happy to just get this season out the way and sort the finances out. Also did anyone else pick up on Hutchinson shouting back at a fan in the second half? Lost the ball in their 3rd to which someone had a go at him. He told them to "shat'ap"(my cockney ain't great) seemed odd a pro footballer would do whilst the game was still playing, but surely just frustration all round
  2. Hi all, luckily or unluckily ive never been to Mansfield, so no clue where to park or drink. Can any tell me if I’ll be alright to park on the retail park, or am I best going for a side street? Also where’s good to catch a swift half before the game? Many thanks to anyone who can help
  3. I seem to vaguely remember Djourou did actually end up at Swansea with Carvalhal? No hold on....maybe scrap that idea

    Chris Sedgwick

    Not sure if any of you are into podcasts but jon parkin and Chris Brown do a podcast, this week with the sedgehammer himself! Few interesting bits about his time at Wednesday, well worth a listen. May break up the day with something to do inbetween refreshing for info on the new kit and slating sean clare and George Hirst . Link below. Listen to Ep. 7 | Chris Sedgwick | Possession Of A Firearm by Under The Cosh #np on #SoundCloud Hopefully the link works. I'm not paid for plugging this podcast but would happily take any donations.

    If #SWFC were promoted to the Premiership

    With our then recruitment team loving an older player with questionable fitness on a multi year contract, I'm only confident they would have got it as wrong as they actually did in reality on a much more catastrophic level! A shot in the dark would be like Johan djorou on 35-40k a week to be injured

    Summer transfers :- the outgoings

    We’re a little amateurish behind the scenes but I’m not sure even we would leave a 7 figure sum asset’s treatment solely in the hands of someone who doesn’t own the player. I suspect they’re treating him and he’s still there doing the rams tv media stuff because a fee was agreed either at the start of the loan or during. Add to that the tribunal money from Clare and Hirst and I can’t really see where we’re making any money on transfers unless it’s kw or one of the Crown Jewels. Abdi could possibly go on loan to serie b or the Swiss league (we pay most of his wages) matias to Portugal (again we pay most of his wage) and Rhodes to a lower middle champ team. I think the money saved on loovens and Wallace and the transfer fees in would sort us out a few freebies and prem loans. Lee back in midfield, fletcher competing with nuhiu, hooper competing with joao. Van aken and pelupessy more comfortable with the championship and The team generally fitter. I am not too unhappy with that

    Lineup vs QPR

    We're not going down and were not going up, so be creative. Even if 3 of them are inevitably stretchered off in the first 15 minutes I want to see ff, joao, abdi and matias on the pitch at the same time. I'd even buy some novelty shirt that showed I witnessed such an occasion!

    For whatever reasons the 11 we put out most games in 2018 isn't good enough for this league. I know they're by far the best team in their league on paper, but how many of our 11 today would Blackburn start over their own? Armstrong and Graham or Nuhiu and Joao? Dack and Whittingham or pelupessy and Clare? Couldnt see them being interested in stobbs, Palmer or fox either. Reach aside we've got a very poor side and we'll continue to lose games to championship sides until a few of the championship players come back. Short term - expect to get beat most weeks Long term - get more football people in and around the club. If you buy a club with little football knowledge, don't have the playing side run by someone with no knowledge of the league supported by an estate agent ....And breathe

    Hirst To Meet The CEO?

    From a Wednesday perspective, assume someone like bannan earns something like 20k a week and it becomes obvious a demand of 15k a week is lunacy. From the perspective of a Chelsea, a man City or recently an Everton, 15k a week is a pittance as these players will get loaned out until they're decent or released. We can't compete with these sort of wages and to be honest, not a lot of clubs can, hence the downsizing of more academies in the professional game
  10. After the debacle with Chris Martin on loan to Fulham, I'd be very surprised if Derby had negotiated any deal which wasn't in their absolute best interests. I can't see us having him back in Jan

    Next manager odds

    I've always got the impression that your jokanovics and your smiths are good coaches in good set ups, where they work with players given to them. For me I'd like to see someone who's really experienced enough to get the set up right behind the scenes and won't take any less. As much as we've spent we're still a club with a very poor injury and rehabilitation side (if any) and an estate agent who was our number 2. For me a Pulis or even a McCarthey wouldn't accept our set up as it is.

    CC comments on playing Atdhe Nuhiu

    He's quite comparable to Emile Heskey really in the sense that it's become fashionable to slate him. Rather than see him as the perfect foil for the other striker who does get the goals (owen/hooper) he's seen as a parody for some and for others a way to give banter to other teams (how crap must you be if Heskey scored!?!) Atty could be our Kosovan Heskey!!

    Fans falling out today

    Sad to say we had a bit of pond scum in the lower tier today. Group of older lads being racist to ameobi early on and either some of our own fans of some of theirs in that corner later on. Then at the end saw some guy (who was with his child) go to town on a seat like it was Neil warnock hanging out his missus. Both on and off the pitch I was embarrassed to be a Wednesday fan today....
  14. Ticket prices below for Birmingham villa. You could argue that having bought in 11+ players this window their owner could have done a 'chansiri' with ticket prices. On the flip side however It's the biggest game Wednesday can play at hillsborough this season (barring an unlikely majestic fa cup run!) against our biggest rivals who we haven't played for a while. Can easily argue for going or not going, and as long as you're happy with whatever you choose, I'll be happy with what I choose. The issue is those who can't accept people taking the other option to them.

    Just me happy with Butterfield?

    Looking at last year's top scorers you have to say they all went or were linked away for good money. Far more money than I could have seen us realistically get for winnall. I don't think winnall is good enough to get into our team but that doesn't mean we shouldn't get the most we can for him. He won't get the goals to raise his valuation to that of an ince or an assombalonga here, so why not let derby do it for us?
