The shadow of The Blades

I’m worried about them going up and leaving us behind forever with the money now on offer in the premier league 

 

I think (as would most people) that we will start next season in the same league as Huddersfield. Despite them have the so called Premier League riches at their disposal, would you have particular fear about playing them? 

 

I have come to terms with the idea of Leeds and Blunts going up together because it means we will not have to play them. I would rather get our own s h i t together for next season, get the deadwood off the books and have another go at promotion without having to play derby games. They are a distraction and nerve wracking affairs and I for one couldn't care less if we can avoid them.

Other than when we’re in the same division playing em twice a season, who seriously gives a f o ok what they’re doing?.  Our current predicament is because we’ve not improved the squad for two seasons, the problem is that players know what’s coming, many will be out of the door and it’s not before time, hopefully we’ll get rid of every single one of em and start again.  We’re too slow, lack pace, strength and are predictable.

I know that but I used them as an example of the PL money myth. Clubs get all of this money for being there but then it has to be factored in the associated losses. The Blunts have been in the PL more recently than us but, in the end, that counted for nothing from a financial perspective. We should concentrate on what we can control. Learn from them and mount a promotion challenge on a realistic, sustainable budget.

It’s not a myth.

 

Using your example do you think Huddersfield will be a stronger proposition as a club next season.

Obviously, I cannot say with any degree of certainty but I suspect Huddersfield will eventually drop into League One before they mount another Premier League promotion push. Clubs like Newcastle get the bouncebackability. Stoke and WBA are showing that having the PL money is not everything.

Wolves, Bournemouth and Brighton started in the same position to ourselves. They got the external investment and benefited from it. That is what we should be trying to emulate though each have put themselves in a perilous financial position doing so. Burnley, OK they seem to have bouncebackability on the back of a very astute coach in Dyche though I suspect the next time they get relegated, and it will happen eventually, they may find getting back next time less than straightforward.

There's no way either that Mcsue will plough millions into the squad. That will be going straight into Scarborough Holdings sky rocket. 

What will be will be. Let's sort our own house and build.

I think it will be tight for the top two and the pigs lack of injuries has allowed them to put a consistent run together which suggests they have a very good chance of autos. If they don't, as we found, owt could happen in the play-offs, but I suspect they'll give the games a better go than our limp performances against Huddersfield.

 

All those on here saying they don't care are either liars or not from Sheffield.

So United could do ok and then we’ve got to hope that when they come down they struggle because Huddersfield might....

 

and I shouldn’t be worried?

 

sorry mate don’t agree.

Yeah, OK fine, I agree to disagree. I would rather concentrate on our own prospects and get on with sorting our own s h i t out. Clubs with parachute payments are a reality in the Championship and I wouldn't fear the Blunts any more than any relegated club from that perspective.

Much as i hate him as his mardy scummy chip on his shoulder about Wednesday manner so typical of a large part of their sad fans, Wilder is almost unbelievably (to look and listen to him) clearly a very good tactician and manager. Adding Hogan and Madine makes them favourites for automatics imo.

We just have to front up in the derby. Players and fans, and maybe we can do some damage to their confidence.

They've got West Brom, us and Leeds as their next 3 away trips.  Season defining games. Let's see where they are after them before blowing them off.

We have been in the shadow of the Blades before, in my time as a Wednesday fan it was in the 1970's with the great United team of the Tony Currie era, since then they have been in our shadow as well.

At the moment they have a very good team, 1 dimensional, but still very good, we are ,at the moment, a work in progress and it may take 2 seasons to get where we want to be.

That's if the supporter's have patience and give the club and management the time to carry out the job.

We are not in Uniteds shadow. I'm looking forward to the Derby game but other than that I never give them a thought. Funnily enough I went out with a United fan last night who told me that Gary Hooper isn't a natural goal scorer. Difficult to take them serious at times which is why I don't.

Not affecting me 

 

They are light years in front of us at the moment and have hit a rich vein of form so anything out of the derby will be a huge bonus

The annoying thing for me this season is that Chansiri's cash would have had us promoted by now if he'd just come in.

It's so wide open and inconsistent this year with no strong teams in the way that Newcastle or Burnley / Hull and Brighton were.

That team from Carlos' first season would be out of sight.

Timing as they say, is everything.
