    Jos or Irvine

    Dour play - I can't argue with that. I class Jos as the Dutch Irvine. Just the quality of the opposition is what's saving Jos. Much of Irvines stats and wins were down to playing against an attack the quality of Bolton Wanderers' on Tuesday. As the previous poster noted, Irvines time was spent in league one against opposition no where near the standard that Jos is facing every week.

    Jos or Irvine

    Out of interest, are you using the win ratio stats that were recorded earlier? Just those say that Alan Irvine was a better manager than Jack Charlton. Big Jack had a win ratio of less than 40%

    Jos or Irvine

    Where's the evidence to say he's done a worse job than irvine so far? Last time I checked, we weren't playing Southend United away next

    Jos or Irvine

    This is like asking whether you would want Stephen Lennon or Nick Griffin as the Foreign Secretary But to put this into perspective... Jos has only signed Pelupessy, then Hector and Onomah on loan - in the championship. Irvine brings in Soares and Nolan, putting us in a better position until we then only get a feeble 10 points from the last 11 matches seeing us deservedly go down Then proceeds in the summer to bring in Weaver, Otsemobor, Coke, D Jones, Sedgwick, Teale, C Morrison, Heffernan and Neil Mellor on loan. Come January, he brings in Reda Johnson, Michael Morrison, Mark Reynolds and Gary Madine - yet performances throughout that season (bar Hartlepool away) were shocking under him. Who can ever forget Leyton Orient battering us on our own pitch yet we somehow managed to escape with the points. Then the amazing performances away at Exeter, home to 9 men Yeovil, being completely outplayed by Charlton and Huddersfield in successive games. It's a complete myth that people go on about Irvine having nowt to work with yet he bought in 15 players during his time. 15 players to play bizarre formations such as a 2-6-2 formation at home to Bournemouth in an undeserved 1-1 draw. He was a complete disaster in league effin one! Had it not been for Nicky Weaver and Megson bringing in Rob Jones and Danny Batth, we would have more than likely been relegated that season. Relegated with a far better squad and set of players than when we came down the first time. By far the worst manager we've ever had at the club! His football was dreadful, set up was awful and to counter the opposition because their right back was a good player - instead of going for it was typical Irvine. Father Jack Hackett would have been a far better appointment! Then again, I always believe the person that made the choice to hire Irvine was in a state that Father Hackett commonly found himself in! Rubbish Manager

    Tom Lees On the Fans

    I understand that in some occasions, booing does not help Sometimes it does trigger a footballer to perform better. I remember back in 2000, when we lost to West Bromwich Albion at home, Gerald Sibon was on the receiving end of a chorus of boos. Then before the Birmingham game, he pleaded with the fans not to boo him. We won the game 1-0 but that was the start of Sibons form being a lot better than what it used to be. He then scored against Fulham a week later and then became one of the first names on the team sheet. De Bilde who was also heavily booed in that game, continued to be De Bilde. A disgrace of a footballer and by the far the worst signing we've ever made. More interested in looking after his pets whilst picking his wage up, instead of playing for Wednesday.

    Can anyone remember a worse win?

    Our 1-0 win over Leyton Orient when Lewis Buxton scored the winner. We were absolutely awful! The first half we were a complete joke. Being battered by a Leyton Orient side at home. We had to thank Nicky Weaver for keeping us in the game, let alone winning it Nicky Weaver kept us in that division and kept that useless father ted lookalike, worst manager ever in charge for a lot longer than he should have been!

    My take

    I can only think they found some recycled notes from when Alan Irvine was appointed. That or the chairman went on a heavy night out downing multiple amounts of Stella and Tequila the day before he interviewed Jos Think the other candidates when Irvine was appointed were Frank Underwood, David Duval and Eddie Redmayne. Wonder if they were the same candidates again?

    Martin O'Neill

    By all means, pop at the Scottish Premiership but didn't O'Neill take Celtic to the UEFA cup in one season, only to lose to Porto in the final who were being managed by the best upcoming manager in the game at that point? I'm sure they knocked out Barcelona and Liverpool on the way, which was pretty impressive. Think he was still at Leicester when Di Canio left Celtic.

    Matthew Le Tissier

    I don't remember the Ronaldinho interest at all I do remember under Pleat, we considered buying Andriy Shevchenko for an agreed fee. We decided against it and bought Andy Booth instead Regarding the list of strikers before we wasted 5 million on trash, I remember the star and other national media reporting us agreeing a fee with Barnsley for Ashley Ward and tabling a 6 million bid for Egil Ostenstad before he left Southampton.

    The Best Thing They Ever Did

    Alan Irvine Giving me hope that I could one day still be a football manager, providing I constantly mention badgers in the interview

    Jees is this world class myth still being blabbed about? Someone tell Adam Reach that his goal against Aston Villa last season wasn't a shot! Tell that to Jordan Rhodes as well. What's that Hooper, penalties don't class as being shots?

    Wednesday v United April 2010

    The days of watching Etienne Esajas play like Marc Overmars for 2 minutes of a 90 minute match, then play like James Corden after 25 pints for the next 88 minutes. Another shockingly awful footballer that some fans would love in our side back now because he has pace.
  15. For players that you don't like 1: Select player profile 2: Click on the transfer status 3: Change the value to 0 4: Select offer to clubs Then check news to hope that a club comes in with a bid See, easy to sell Nuhiu, Fox, Palmer, Dawson, Pelupessy and any other scapegoat that i've forgotten
