    Feel a bit sorry for Mr Chansiri

    It's a core skill for anyone who wants to communicate properly! Especially if they are being interviewed by the media.

    Feel a bit sorry for Mr Chansiri

    No doubt the OP is being somewhat ironic! What is absolutely clear is that DC has misjudged the fanbase of this working class city by a million miles. Some will continue to put up with the ticket prices, the replica kit prices and the sponsorship costs, but there has been and will continue to be massive resistance. As I said in the "Shirtgate" thread, for me the whole football world has gone mad over the last few years. Transfer fees, players' wages, agents' fees, ticket prices, - just about everything related to a game which used to be a working class game, has risen beyond what is reasonable and fair to the man / woman earning the average wage and of course many these days are on minimum wage. I despise everything about the professional game these days, albeit I will always follow Wednesday. However, the Sky / BT obscene levels of charges for TV and the money they're pumping in to football, making it a so called "elitist sport". Journeymen professional footballers earning thousands per week and being treated as some sort of faux royalty, when many can barely put half a dozen words together in an interview, let alone pronounce the words correctly. I'm sick to death of the so called superstars who say "fink" when they mean "think" and sundry other similar mispronunciations. Ok - end of rant! lol!

    It seems to me (if this rumour is true) - that Chansiri has yet again completely misjudged the market here in South Yorkshire. If he thinks more than a handful of people will pay £99 for a shirt, he's completely lost the plot. Frankly I begrudge even £59, whether the quality is good or not. These items cost single figures to manufacture and FFP or not - it's a rip off to be making these sorts of margins out of working class people. The whole football world has gone off the planet for me. Transfer fees, agents' fees, players' wages, ticket prices - everything. And frankly I blame Sky TV and BT etc for most of it. As much as I will always be a Wednesdayite, football is no longer a game for the people.
  4. I'd have preferred the stripes to be on the sleeves too, but at least it's better than last year's monstrousity. Hooped socks would have been better too, but the blue / black is not too bad.
  5. I went to this one and I seem to recall the "International XI" played in a dayglo orange kit, - really bright and looked like they had about 14 men on the pitch. Can't recall anything about the game though. As others have said, people turned up to support the beneficiary player who in this case had given many years of solid service to the club. And in those days they weren't paid a fortune of many hundred times the average weekly wage.

    Surely not the new #SWFC kits?

    Good design, but the blue needs to be a little darker. That one looks more like the "Huddersfield" blue. Ours in a deeper full on "royal" blue.
  7. Christine Owen was Miss Great Britain around that time. She used to work for my mother in a party plan cosmetics business. Just a piece of useless information. She was very attractive though to say the least.

    Westwood in demand?

    When Westwood has played this season, I don't think he has been at the level he was in previous seasons. I'd not be sorry if we got a few million for him. Dawson and Wildsmith are good enough to fight it out for the number one spot. For me Dawson is the better of the two. Commands his area much better and his kicking is better too. As a shot stopper, I think Dawson is equally as good as Wildsmith.
  9. I remember Gerry Young scoring a superb goal at home against Birmingham City in the F. A. Cup. Picked the ball up just around the centre circle, moved forward a few yards and unleashed a shot from around 35 to 40 yards that flew past Jim Herriot in the Birmingham goal. They'd been leading 1-0 and looked like winning the game. Sadly we lost the replay at St Andrews.

    Daily star today

    Much as it goes against the grain, I think he's improved significantly since he first left S2. He seems to be able to confidently bring the ball out from the back and find a colleague in a constructive way from what I've seen of him. He's a solid defender and decent in the air too. I'm not sure about £50 million but he's certainly likely to be involved in the world cup this summer.

    We need to keep the ball on the floor today. FF and Rhodes aren't going to win anything in the air.
  14. Could be 3-5-2 with Boyd on the left or 4-4-2 with Boyd on the right. I suspect the former in the light of how we've lined up in the last few games.
  15. BBC coverage going mad again - "Penalty Sheffield Wednesday. Joe Wildsmith draws a foul in the penalty area." I wonder if Wildsmith is playing up front??
