  1. Who was the last player we sold for a fee?
  2. That would affect sales of the current shirt.

    Wrong day!

    I once set off to watch us at Crewe in 2000 and never made it. Ended up going under Mersey Tunnel at around kick off.

    Harsh on Fletch?!

    You'd know.

    On The Right

    JP McGovern was technically a better player in my opinion. Wallace was great for a scorcher or the big games. But we have struggled for the last 18 months because not enough players have consistantly performed, no matter their ability, week-in and week-out. Wallace falls into that category as does Loovens, Butterfield, Rhodes, Fox and Boyd. Enough is enough. We need 46 game players prepared to chip in for 90 minutes at a time.

    Jos Luhukay vs Carlos Carvalhal

    For the record. Jos, what a guy... Always have faith in your gaffer, let them do it their way. No doubt the usual suspects will have the knives ready though.

    Give it a year and you'll be calling for Jos' head. And so the merry-go-round goes on.

    Crass thread. Wish Wednesday fans would leave CC in the past and remember him in the same way we should remember Francis, Laws and Jones. They all came to a sticky ending after giving us something in return. Obsessed, bitter and small time. Welcome to Wednesday.

    What signed #SWFC stuff do you own?

    A framed and signed montage of our derby double 2008/09 (Brian Laws) I'd be willing to donate it to anybodys charity or event if anybody would be interested.
  10. He's not the only one. But you only hear from them when we've lost.
  11. When Tom Lees was interviewed by Radio Sheffield - he boldly stated that when he was at Leeds it would be two weeks before they even saw a football during pre-season. Yet on day one of our pre-season they were doing ball work. This must have been two years ago - as we went into another play-off acheiving season. Though for me what Jon says is irrelevant whether you agree with him or not. What is relevant, is that from the very earliest times he was invited to be a pundit during matches, or via his advertisement column, he has had a clear and sinister agenda against the management and club. It culminated during the QPR game in which he revelled in our catastrophic start - highlighting more on Holloways animated presence and making comparisons to how Jos conducts himself, as if the two were a clear indication as to why we were 3-0 down after 15 minutes. Despite being an SWFC pundit I still expect a level of objectivity and context in his analysis - but theres none. He has been critical of the chairman, manager and players without ever suggesting neutrality and only scant hints of positivity. His click-bait style of punditry (that conveniantly ties in with his column being sponsored) is growing tiresome, trivial and hampering a growing sense of unity within the club. I always found John Pearson's tone to be somewhat twee but listening to Newsome is like when you get stuck with the weird cousin at a family party who has beef with his next door neighbour - theres no real danger that he's going to go round and sort so tells everyone else about it instead. I'd have more respect if he just came out and said exactly what he thinks, for his opinions are not what bothers me, but his barely repressed struggle between acting as the prickly pundit but wanting to smooth his way to a possible car sale is grating. It's the very worst of hypocrisy.
  12. We have never been in a relegation scrap this season. Many teams could have 'mathematically' gone down up to a point. But it sells cars yeah?
  13. Slept in South Stand for 91 tickets. Was awful weather too, spent a good few hour on Penistone Road too. Some lads took a ball on the pitch and got thrown out, always wondered what happened to them.

    Jos maybe...

    Seems a class act both on the touchline and in front of the camera. Let the results speak for themselves and bringing the best out of our fringe players. Didn't stop people from wanting him sacked after 2 weeks though.
