  1. Love a bit of comedy after a defeat.
  2. Best Wednesday Goal ever comp

    One that hasn't been mentioned is Jermaine Johnsons strike at Leeds under Laws. One of the best counter attacking goals I've seen. The ball from Brunt, the flick on by Burton to Whelan who set it up perfectly for Johnson to fire a cracking volley in the top corner. I think we were down to 10 men that game as well. It reminded me in a way of one of the goals the 1970 world cup winning Brazil ream scored against Italy. Think it was Jairzinho or Carlos Alberto who scored.
  3. 2005 v 2012

    The 2012 promotion. Beating that lot to second place after the derby they could afford to lose. Especially when it looked like we were doomed to the play offs and possibly missing out thanks to the useless ones' worldy run of defeats early 2012. That run Dave Jones went on was magnificent. Signing Treacy was a genius move to get us past the final hurdle. It was so frustrating in the end to see what happened throughout the next couple of seasons after the promotion. Bold statement I accept but I remain convinced Jones would have done far better had he not signed Jay Bothroyd on loan.
  4. How on earth have you put Reda here, yet forgotten the greatest helmet wearing centre half the world has ever seen. So good, he'd walk into the Italian national team ahead of Franco BaresI and Alessandro Costacurta (if he wasnt Spanish) Miguel Llera would easily walk into this team. Greatest center half we've ever had!!!
  5. I've never known Wednesday fans to ever give a returning manager grief. I remember when Stockport County came to Hillsborough and took a point home. It was Chris Turner's first game back and given how awful his managerial days here were, he got a better reception than many expected. Even Danny Wilson had an okish one when Bristol City visited the season before
  6. Typical carlos match!

    Pensioners in a rest home would have comfortably dealt with the snails pace counter attacking play we offered. Completely summed up when Fred bought the ball out, ran into their half and was the furthest Wednesday player forward. League is obviously the priority after that.
  7. My number counting must be awful. I thought next year is 2019, not 2021.
  8. Favourite away wins..

    2-1 victory over Sheffield United - just wish Leon Clarke's shot went in instead of smashing the post. Made up for the 2-2 draw where Graham Kavanagh put in his best performance in a Wednesday shirt until he got injured.
  9. Fox or Beswetherick?

    When he puts in awful performances week after week in league one, then he may be considered to be on the deserved list with Barry Murphy, Beswetherick and Daniel Jones. Two of those were signed for the first team, Jones was for rotation with Spurr. Fox was signed clearly as a backup left back who's playing more games than he should due to our injury list. It's like saying Butterfield is our worst midfielder ever yet if he deserves to be ahead of Paul Mclaren, Craig Armstrong and Darren Potter - then we may as well pack up and go home.
  10. I wasn't around in the 70s but this is no where near as bad as the 03/04 season under Turner. Non stop debt this debt that from the boardroom, statements such as promising to resign if they sack the manager, Europe in 5 years... Then watching Chesterfield defeat you 3-1 with so much ease. Think we ended up being 3 points above the relegation zone. A complete catastrophe of a season... Plus we had Brian Barry Murphy or Jon Beswetherick at left back. They make Morgan Fox the equivalent of Roberto Carlos
  11. Morgan fox

    I assume you haven't been attending Hillsborough for long then
  12. Butterfield has been total quality today

    Despite that performance, Sam Winnall did better today scoring 5 goals in Derbys victory over Reading Oh hang on
  13. Linesman yesterday

    I think that was the south stand official who incorrectly flagged Roofe when he forced Wildsmith into a good save. The Lee disallowed goal was around 36 minutes I think. Might be wrong
  14. I share your pain There's 2 Blade supporting families where I live here. I've received plenty of banter from them over the result. To be honest I'm glad they've done it. I used to love the banter over the Sheffield Derby win or lose. Hope it's my turn for payback come January.
  15. Most Embarassing Wednesday Song ?

    "Worst support we've ever seen" Up there with boring boring tables as the most pathetic chant ever.
