  1. Ainsworth is working with one of the lowest budgets in the entire EFL - even though his team are in the upper reaches of league 1 What he's done is remarkable - and still up there with the much vaunted cowleys But yeah, damn him because he hasn't won national league south whatever
  2. His birthday is the day before the "birthday" of SWFC And the day before the birthday of my beloved daughter - who will be a mere 21 on Wednesday And Harry's birthday is also a day before the "birthday" of Meadowhall... But regardless it's great to hear he's doing so well Go on Harry!
  3. I'm baffled as to why so many seem to think the cowley's come with some sort of guarantee that it will be only upwards What have they achieved that say, Gareth Ainsworth hasn't? And why no clamour for him? Bizarre
  4. He's been there (Stoke) too long more like...
  5. Nathan Jones is proving that a lower league manager with a very credible record is guaranteed to succeed when taking on a job with hugely increased expectation and resources...
  6. I think it's symptomatic of Wednesday tbh I think we have long undersold ourselves and often looked "below" Danny Wilson, Paul Jewell and the ridiculous appointment of Turner stands testament - thats notwithstanding Shreeves and Yortath etc F*ck that shyte The only time we looked like having any success in this relatively modern era was when we reached out and acted serious - with BFR and the funds that The Trickster initially had then quickly had to balance the books (Warhurst for Sinton...) Somebody somewhere else (apologies for not citing) mentioned how the very much vaunted Nathan Jones has had an absolute mare compared to the relatively high expectations at Stoke Sometimes you just have to play the percentages and admit that if you want to succeed then you need to pay accordingly If those funds aren't available then just be honest and take a punt on somebody from the lower leagues whose CV is staggeringly average
  7. They've won 3 out of 5 right? In League 1 Bullen has won 3 out of 5 In the championship I get why some may think Bully is not the answer But i'm struggling with the "must get Cowley's" vibe
  8. I can't go there mate Need to log off and let the old blood pressure return to something approaching safe!
  9. Wilder wasn't "special" - he had gained one promotion from league two to league one before he joined the pigs Lots of managers have such a record
  10. To not at least have him as an option from the bench is insane
  11. Wilder had one FL promotion before he joined the pigs From league 2 to 1 with Northampton He had also won promtoion to the FL from the conference with Oxford
  12. The season-long thousand yard stare into the distance that afflicts matchday from july to may starts to happen...
  13. Bravo Just because he came through at Chelsea (although nowhere near getting a "real" contract with them) some seem to think he must have been the real deal An absolute one-paced plodder who can pick the occasional pass but generally floats around the periphery of games Nowhere near Bannan's level - not even near enough to clean his boots Wouldn't be cheap either
  14. Also it was R&D that got relegated and saved us when the hapless turner was in charge I will never forget coming out of Kenilworth Rd having lost 3-2 and hearing that R&D had also lost thereby securing our League 1 status
