League One Appreciation Thread

Recommended Posts

Plymouth have been promoted to league 1 so being able to watch us less than an hour away (in theory).

Going on an amazing run and overhauling our most hated rivals.

 

If we are in league one next season I hope we can do something similar, just have to beat Doncaster to promotion this time!

Remember this day purely because I had Wednesday in a 9 team accumulator. Every result i needed was coming through to fulltime and I was just driving down to the bookies (bet was done on a slip) with a right smile on my face thinking what I was going to spend my winnings on, next minute a score announcement on radio states that Jimmy Ryan had just scored a 94th minute equaliser for Scunthorpe at Walsall. No £960 winnings and I have hated Scunthorpe and Jimmy Ryan ever since.

Funnily enough, Keiron Agard scored a goal once that got me £11k on a bet.

Whether we like it or not, the bl*nts are doing so well because they - eventually - made a cracking job of building from L1. 

 

If we could do something even remotely similar by using the opportunity to get some hungry players that want to play for the club and trusting that we can build them, I'd happily go round all those bloody grounds again.

My dream is to see Wednesday in a refurbished Hillsborough competing again in the top flight of English football

 

Anything that takes us further away from that dream is unwanted.

 

For this club to be out of the top flight for  more than 20 years is humiliating.

Remember going to a match in that division (it was called Division 3 in those days). We played a certain Sheffield United and had rather a good time along with 49,000 others. Also remember being in that division and playing a certain Arsenal in the FA Cup. Went to 4 of the 5 matches. Not all doom and gloom in the lower reaches.

Thats because they had (and still have) a manager who knows what he is doing.

 

We have currently got Gary Monk.

What if he was a long standing blade?

Monk knows what he's doing.  Go see my analysis on the Forest game.

Id gate to go down but did enjoy it last time.

Would be embarrassing a club Wednesday's size to have a 3rd spell at that level in a little over 15 years.

I sir will have to disagree with you on that. His track record in management is average at very best.

Dreadful tough league in which we would struggle..  some say we can rebuild better in league one..

We thought that last time and struggled,  we'd struggle to attract decent players.

 

No way do I want SWFC to endure anything lower than Championship level.  

Me neither mate, and I wouldn’t think any Wednesday fan would want to see us relegated to League One. 
We do though stand a good chance of that happening to us. Long, long winless run, threadbare squad, and the threat of a points deduction hanging over us. 
My point was, we’ve given ourselves a massive rebuilding job, that we will have to do on a significantly reduced budget, and in what will probably be a dramatically shortened closed season. Nothing that has happened in recent times, suggest to me that this would be doable. Not at this level anyway. 
If we drop a level though, yes our budget will be further reduced, but it will still be one of the biggest in the division. If we are shopping for League One and Two players, as some suggest we should be, then we would still be an attractive proposition for those players. That coupled with our existing players generally being a cut above that available to most at that level, should in theory make the rebuild a lot easier. 
Consequently, we should then take the opportunity to bring in a young manager who can not only rebuild, but can create a footballing philosophy going forwards We need a new identity

But they agent Wilson initially. Hopefully our next appointment is well suited to us and to the task... I await with bated breath.

The best away days like notts county and walsall are sadly no longer in that division

Ah yes, Walsall and those chicken balti pies, which were banging !! Yeovil was a good away run as well.

It would not be the end of the world if we did end up relegated. Gives us a chance to regroup and build up for the future on  solid foundations.

To get relegated to that league for the third time in 20 years would be an absolute ******** embarrassment for a club our size.

 

Anyone entertaining the idea or seeing it as a way to 'clear the decks' wants to give their head a wobble.

You're deluded if you think any of those things will happen under DC. The best we can hope for is that we cling on to our championship status and get lucky until he sells us on. 

 

Long term strategy is not in Mr C's vocab.

My sisters wedding day that. I can remember us all checking the scores on our phone in disbelief we’d gone 3-0 inside about 20 minutes.

completely agree. People can argue all they want but seeing united in the Prem and us possibly being in league one makes it even more embarrassing.
