  1. Many rave about Roland Nilssons performance in the league cup final (and quite rightly so) against Manchester United but Nigel Pearson that day was fantastic as well I think from memory, ITV game him the man of the match in that game. He was superb dealing with a top class strike force that Mark Hughes and Brian McClair were
  2. I cannot remember the season but it was away at Tottenham in the mid to late 80s. Lee Chapman was still playing for us as was Martin Hodge. Think Howard Wilkinson was still manager. We lost the game 2-0 from memory. Don't remember who scored the goals for Tottenham.
  3. Lads, look at this chant someones made up for Cameron Dawson
  4. I turned up about 5 minutes after kick off and missed the opening goal. Remember Coughlans powerful header to make it two, mainly because of Weaver turning around and celebrating big time. This is nothing compared to the one win in seventeen. 6 points, doomed to relegation on boxing day in the premier league. A strike force of Sibon, Booth, De Bilde and Cresswell (no wonder why we scored fifteen goals up till the Boro win on Boxing day). Fifteen goals, with five of those in one game! That summer trying to sign Dani, Michael Mols, Egil Ostenstad, Henrik Larsson etc - we end up with two players guaranteed to be in the worst premiership signings XI squad easily. Then the silly 'return to the premiership season tickets' when it was clearly obvious there was no chance we would be coming back up. Even the early hope when we didn't put in that bad performances v Blackburn, Wolves and Grimsby - the writing was clearly on the wall we'd struggle. First team players who refused to play but didn't want to go on loan because of their dogs as an example. Managers usually hate being sacked but from what I remember reading, Paul Jewell was relieved it was over given the toxic atmosphere at the club. Even worse was to follow with the 2010/11 season. The magnificent chairman walking out at the start of the season, tax debts increasing, almost going out of business and then a side with players who a few seasons ago finished mid table, were on the receiving end of being outplayed by Leyton Orient, Carlisle United and Exeter City. On top of that, a manager who was more scared of Hereford United's right back than setting up a side to attack the opposition. 2003/04 season we accepted we were rubbish and players needed removing from the club. It feels like this is that season (hopefully without being relegated). Then in the summer, no contracts to all players out of contract and then start a fresh again. Even if we end up being battered 3-0 at home on the opening day of the season to Derby County
  5. Derby County - FA Cup quarter final replay Set up the semi final against United Special mention to the 2-0 victory over Liverpool in the relegation season
  6. Yep, the one that a former manager of Nottingham Forest was desperate to sign whilst at another club. After he left, he was relieved he didn't sign him as would have destroyed the morale within the club he previously managed. Even Billy Davies has some interesting things to say about McGugans levels of fitness in particular.
  7. Is this the same Lewis McGugan that fell out with every single Nottingham Forest manager during his time there, plus the Watford managers?
  8. Until he takes a championship mid table side to getting their bottoms spanked by league one clubs regularly, whilst spending a fortune in that division - then he's no where near the levels of Alan Irvine in terms of worst manager in the history of Sheffield Wednesday managers It does feel like we've turned back the clock to 2000 again, Players that literally can't be bothered and a manager struggling to get anything out of them. It's like we're back with Paul Jewell and the players have all become Gilles De Bilde.
  9. That was a training match for City in the end.
  10. Could have been an absolute legend at the club but then for some reason, it all went sour. The run we went on when he first joined was sensational. I don't think anyone thought we'd get to 90+ points after that fabulous 1-0 defeat at Chesterfield under the greatest manager in the history of football league managers. Even if we did miss out by a point to The Blades, the football being played would have probably got us promoted via the play offs. Think he wanted out during the first season in the championship. It all went disaster once he bought in that excuse of a footballer on loan, Jay Bothroyd, then played him constantly. The team spirit went with that loan. On paper, an excellent loan signing, in reality, one of the worst loan signings we've ever made, if not the worst. It was no coincidence that team morale and form went out of the window once he arrived.
  11. No way did only 19 million depart in player transfers They got 30 million for Sissoko from Spurs, 12 million from Palace for Townsend and around 25 million from Liverpool for Winjaldum Geordie fans couldn't believe their eyes when they saw a 30 million figure for Sissoko, a comparison of that is a club offering one pence for Kim Olsen
  12. Wonder if he heard that 'pump it up' chant tonight
