  1. I'd love to hear Abdi's version of his life here at SWFC. Where did it all go wrong? Were the personal issues? Mental health issues? We signed a Swiss international midfielder that had played regularly in the Premier League What the hell happened?
  2. What can I say? An absolute hero of mine , at an age when Sheffield Wednesday were all I cared about. Quite an unassuming bloke really, I remember Gary Shelton was always signing autographs and getting invilved with fans, whereas Banno could barely be fussed to smile at us. Stange career as well, he obviously went to QPR for a few more quid at a time when it really made a difference. I've got one of those Silhouette t shirts with his face and 'Goal Machine' written underneath it. The hairstyle is unmistakable.
  3. Funny how times change. A few years ago I might have been ' Oh Hirsty, what a lad' Now I just think that's quite a sad story.
  4. I like the idea of swapping Rhodes for him. But then again, I would like the idea of swapping Rhodes for their coach driver.
  5. Probably not what we need to be honest. It's a tough old league isn't it? Possibly better to go with the Onomah and Hector types and the positions they can cover.
  6. Bruce has been around a long time, much of it at a very high level so he will be able to identify a few possible causes of this ridiculous injury situation. To have three players: Lee Hooper Abdi Who's careers you can say are in the balance, if not over , due to injuries and the inability to overcome them , is disgraceful in the modern era. That two of these are two of our best players makes it even more galling.
  7. Every thread on the stupidity and cowardice of hooliganism attracts a few old school 'tough guys'. Unless your a fan of antisocial, scumbag behaviour that scares kids and families then yes, you should 'snitch on wednesdayies'.
  8. Look, any of them can go can't they? If we are offered decent money, not one of our players is a 'must keep'. Bruce is a cheque book manager, he needs a big budget and knows how to spend wisely in this league. He will probably have to generate his own funds to some extent, so money from Reach, Fessi and Joao is what he's looking for.
  9. So, after the massive demands of the fans to have Westwood, Hutchinson and Boyd back in the team...how much better are we? How much better is the attitude? How much more leadership and commitment is there? Could it be that Jos was on to something when he wanted to ditch the old pro's for the young guns? Attitude, togetherness and commitment are everything in this league. If it was about players reputations and price tags then Villa would be walking it. I've not seen a 'team' effort for 2 seasons now.
  10. The back of our programme is already embarrassing..the size of squad compared with other teams . Now that's increased by another 3. We really shoulld have got 6 or 7 out on loan.
  11. Looked like he asked for Higuains shirt as they came off at half time. Fair enough I suppose, it might be years until he plays against someone like him again.
  12. Given his age ( no resale value for the buyer ) , and his recent injury record, I would take around £5 million for FF. Still a game changer and match winner at this level, especially when motivated. Reach would go for more as he is young enough for his value to increase, and can play in a range of positions. no less than £10 million for him. I think the last of our players that would go for decent money is Joao. £5 million and a bag of Frazzels.
  13. We've given them nothing to think about. No attacking intent whatsoever..their defence might have been flapping a bit with Joao running at them from the start. Final whistle.
  14. My prediction is that we wont be able to give Rhodes away due to his wages. I would try and give him a free transfer just to get him off the wage bill. Disastrous signing, he's lost whatever he had, the warning signs were there at Villa. As @Sonny said, you can't change your system to accommodate one terrible signing...we did our best for him..we did provide crosses and chances despite what some fans says..Rhodes was just never there on the end of them. He'll be back next season, let's hope something miraculous happens and he becomes the player of 5 seasons ago.
