  1. Best chance of getting dyche would be if there was some kind of accident and he lost half his brain. Ludicrous suggestion
  2. To say the fans wouldn't take to Hirst is a little precious surely? I think the fans would take to Adolf hitler if he scored enough and he's not got the surname of a Wednesday legend. Is he better than Gregory and/or Smith? It's certainly a debate which could go either way, but he's a far better age than those pair and neither of those two have played every game out of the first 3 league games, let alone over tje 46 game season. Should be the sort of player we're trying to sign
  3. That side of the game will take more points off us this season than we will get from it. I'm not a fan of it really as its a shitty way of admitting the other team at that moment are better than you. That said i can see why we did it 2nd half today. Bannan, vaulks and windass looked done. Paterson wasn't keeping the ball. Fdb was only doing bits in spurts. You then look to the bench and sylla sow is waving at you. Today I think was a case of "we hold what we have" gotta get into that loan market so we can get back to playing teams that spoil a game for 90 minutes
  4. If all the fines go into the pot for the Christmas party, then at the rate they're going thats going to be one hell of a party!
  5. No complaints on the subs, but it should leave no one in any doubt that we still need a couple more players in....even more so if we continue to lose players at the rate we are!
  6. I ordered mine first day of general sale and not had them yet....hopefully they take a little longer to get Birmingham way!
  7. In terms of tall centre halves who can actually play a bit, did Michael Hector ever find a club?
  8. Is famewo left footed? Didn't watch many Rotherham games last season so couldn't comment on Ihiekwe, but we always look unbalanced with a right footer cutting back inside. I worry that'll be more obvious with a back 3 that are less capable of getting it down and playing. I'd prioritise a left footed centre half over Dean personally
  9. Arguably the greatest ever player of the game in Ronaldo (certainly top 2) is criticised regularly for not doing the dirty work. The game has moved on from wingers getting white on their boots from sitting out wide and waiting to get the ball. Corbeanu could make a career out of coming on later in games when a team needs a goal (I think of mk against us and mk/Wycombe game - games where it was attack v defence) as he'll cause problems, although ultimately his team got nothing out of either of those games. Teams don't start players who can only attack or defend anymore
  10. I hope the club will do the right thing refund those who got his name and number on the new kit
  11. It's like watching stevie may in a random europa league qualifier all over again!
  12. Suspect they're quite similar to us last season. It's not necessarily who they bring in, it's which players are they keeping who were championship play off level players not so long ago. We had bannan, luongo, iorfa, players who wouldn't be playing league 1 for anyone else. They'll have one or two like that. That bielik still there?
  13. I'm guessing the ticket offer is for in store purchases only? Any idea which games are in the offer? Apologies if these are stupid questions
  14. I hope we don't persist with 3 at the back, but if we do it needs to be one of dean/flint ilk. The other two would need to be able to pick a pass and step into midfield with the ball when we inevitably play against 11 behind the ball. Gibson tbf when on the pitch was able to get up and down which would make a player like him an ideal wide centre back
  15. Selfishly, I hope we get the Devon teams in bloody awful Saturdays in the year. There's 14 grounds there I haven't done (accy, Fleetwood, Morecambe, shrews, Burton, Barnsley, Cheltenham, forest Green, Exeter, Plymouth, pompey, Cambridge, Oxford, wycombe) and the only 3 anywhere near likely to go general sale are the 2 devons and Portsmouth.
  16. Unless he promised a close friend or family member on their deathbed he would finish his career at wednesday, or he was being blackmailed, I can't see us offering the money, or him having the desire to play league 1.
  17. He'll play against us next season and no doubt cause us some issues, but it's the right choice. Too many of his games this season felt like him getting up to speed. By the time he then got up to speed, he broke down again. Would better suit a Wycombe kinda side.
  18. Andy Carroll apparently left West brom because he wanted 20k a week and they said "get f#&£*%*" (do with this information whatever you will)
  19. On the pitch, off the pitch, morons are always going to be morons. Even in our last game when one of the Sunderland players had a corner (the cynic in me thinks it was initially a ploy to incite and cause more disruption, either way some of our numpties duly obliged by emptying their pockets) we had fans potentially causing harm.
  20. He was paid a Premier league wage (couldn't guess how much we paid) and was unequivocally first choice for a team in a league good enough for him to be number 1 for his country again. We owe him nothing and nor does he us, thats what a loan is. If Burnley go down, he probably plays for Burnley. If they don't, someone in the champ will pay the loan fee and wages we did this season. We all move on.....(not to that banzunu though. Anyone thinking we're getting him is crackers. He's going to the prem)
  21. Expect a flood of "very rare bnwt" away shirts on ebay for 70 quid in 3.....2........1.......
  22. Hopefully his involvement stretches only as far as a seat in the south stand, but like others have said I think his involvement is more than an opinion. Any good feeling garnered from this season could be lost a lot quicker than it took to gain it with news like this.
  23. As a wednesday fan living in the midlands there's been a few Saturday mornings where I've fancied going, only to see the category means the game would cost me 29 quid (Don't really get the point of categories in league 1 when it's wednesday I'm paying to see, not Sunderland, Portsmouth, Ipswich, etc but that's a different rant.) When the only options are pick and choose at 29 a pop or go all in for 500, you're inevitably going to lose more fans than you gain.
  24. Not sure if any clubs offer this across the country, and I have absolutely no I.t acumen whatsoever, however I wonder if you have 10 games as a counter on your online account. You print off the ticket for the game at home and your account goes down to 9. Maybe absolute pie in the sky stuff, but I think it'd massively hook the fans that live hours away like myself.
  25. More benefits for members. Season ticket holders can bring a mate for 10/15 quid. Heavily reduced kids tickets (but in the south stand or something.) Family bundle deals. 5 game packages. 10 game packages. Weekend packages. Pair this with actually having this seasons kit in stock and we might make a bit more money
