  1. 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!
  2. Perspective

    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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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!!
  7. 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....
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. Can anyone recommend any streets nearby the ground that offer free parking? Any help appreciated.
  11. Nixon

    I know it's only a small section of transfer speculation in a paper but I can't imagine "owls interested in lichaj" being national news worthy
  12. Dream - ritchie Good - mbemba or yedlin Likely - Hanley I went for potential Newcastle fringe players edition...
  13. Callum Macmanaman ?????

    When we were 1 down to hull last year and we needed someone to get us closer to their goal we put on Jeremy helan. Mcmanaman is no world beater and we don't start games with 3 up top, but he's an excellent plan b as he's a completely different wide man to reach and Wallace or bannan and lee. We need that pace option on the bench
  14. Villa Tho'

    They'll probably bring in a cm like jedinak and play him with the kid from reading. Amavi will come back in at some point and the front 2 won't be that ineffectual you wouldn't have thought as McCormack gets fitter. Best time to play them really. Would have taken the point but over the moon with 3!
  15. Where we should strengthen

    Would send back turner if it's possible. Don't actually think he's put a foot wrong for us but seems to be injured far too much for my liking. On not too dissimilar money I imagine we could loan mike Williamson who did wonders for wolves' defensive woes. Solid but unspectacular
