  1. Bannan is the problem

    Nonsense. Out of a team if underachievers, he remains one of the hardest working and most committed.
  2. CHANSIRI OUT CARLOS OUT

    Chansiri owns the club. It is his and we have zero say in it. At one time we did with local shareholders and most on here wanted a rich single owner. Well you now have what you wished for. We can just hope the owner has someone good lined up as the sacking is the easy bit.
  3. New Advertising Boards and Touchline

    I’m in row 9. So we are saying that there are 25 rows in the North not able to see the line! What about the front of the Kop? Amazed that no-one seems bothered........
  4. Stewards on North Stand

    No idea what you are on about. In North today yet again, 55 years since I started there, and saw nothing.
  5. Chansiri's the real worry

    To all those who desperately wanted to get rid of the old regime where local people held the shares in the club, in spite of some obvious issues, be careful what you wish for. You have what you wanted and effectively voted for on here-a rich man owning what used to be OUR club. So don’t moan now,it is what you wanted
  6. New Advertising Boards and Touchline

    Seems like most are so disinterested in the actual football that not being able to see the lines is no issue? First time I have had this problem since 1955.
  7. Stepping aside from the debate about to-day’s football, a comment about the new replacement LED panels. I wasn’t able to go to the Bristol match so this is the first time I have seen them. Glad to see that they dim in floodlit conditions. BUT, quite an issue, in the North stand, you can no longer see the touchline because they are so high. Might be OK high up in the stand but how many of you in the North and on the Kop now have this problem?

  9. Could we get worse than Carlos??

    bI think this is the greatest worry. Our club does not have the best track history of picking a good successor when replacing a manager. It is easy to sack a manager, needs understanding of the game and very good contacts to select someone who can do better. At the moment, there are very few if any names around who are likely to be right for us who would be prepared to come to Sheffield and who are available. It might be why Mr Chansiri is not making the decision yet???
  10. Carlos. You have done well for the club, especially in season 1 when you played the football you promised. Even now, it only needs a bit of pace on the pitch, or some serious tacking or a good run and the crowd give the team backing and noise. But you have to understand, when we watch pass after pass between the goalkeeper and the back four, maybe as far as one midfield player and then back to the keeper, there is NOTHING to cheer about and absolutely nothing to get excited about. The onus is on you and the players, not the supporters, to play the sort of football we can cheer at. We are willing and very ready to do this as has been proved even this season as soon as something even half promising happens. But it has to start on the pitch with the 11 millionaires you have chosen to be in the team.
  11. FAO Season Ticket Holders

    I am in year 2 of a 3 year season ticket. Still attending although when not able to, not too disappointed. It really is quite dire stuff and very difficult to get excited even when we win.
  12. I think most of the comments here are of quite recent reporters, predominantly BBC Radio Sheffield reporters. I would like to step back to the 1960s before local radio when in the daily, Sheffield Telegraph (which was a great newspaper by the way), there was Ross Jenkinson who was replaced by Keith Farnsworth. Both focused on reporting Wednesday matches. Keith became overall Sports Editor and then Deputy Editor. I nominate Keith The photo shows Keith on the left and the late Keith Baron on the right.
  13. Quite frankly whether we are happy or not is completely irrelevant. He owns the club, lock, stock and all the smoking barrels. Our only relevance to the owner is whether or not we put money into his entertainment enterprise, because if we don't, he and the club will end up in the same financial queer street we were before. And it is all about performance and success on the pitch - an unusual business with a single product which is totally dependent on the 11+3 millionaires on the pitch and their performance. At least when the club was owned by Sheffield people, with just a small investment, we could attend and vote at the AGM - and get called morons by the Chairman!!
  14. Turning defence into attack so quickly

    Actually, we must have had at least 6 opportunities yesterday when Westwood had the ball and Fletcher and Hooper were one on one quite well up. Had to be worth a punt or two but no, after holding it and looking several times he went for the slow option. Supporters around me were shouting for him to release it and get the ball up front (best done quickly through midfield not just always a long kick). Although Forestieri and Jao are our best pace options, the general pace was appalling although we still had sufficient opportunities to score at least one more goal.
  15. Well generally less expensive and much better quality than the stuff at our "Megastore". If that's posh, so be it.
