I still had to pinch myself when we signed the Waddler.

I knew that he was going to be good but I had no idea how good.

I thought he was going to be here for his last big pay day before retiring and just go through the motions. 

 

What a waste of money, I thought when I saw the headline in The Star.

 

I was wrong, boy was I wrong.  

 

In my top three players for Wednesday, beautiful to watch.

I remember it well. First thing I thought is "Why have we signed this ageing player who's obviously passed his best"

I've always been a good judge of players! 😁

Remember his debut away at Everton, first game after they implemented the back pass rule, remember marvelling at how fast the game was in comparison to before.

I still expect the goalie to pick the ball up, just can't get used to it.  The goalies look so awkward trying to position themselves to kick it away, doesnt look natural.

It p.!5sed it down as well, made goalie clearances even harder, both goalies spent most of the game looking at the ref with panicked faces!

Tricky Trev couldn't half attract the quality players.

Then peeded them off apparently, I suppose you can't have everything.

He certainly was up there WITH the best. 

 

Controversial opinion, but what if Di Canio played for us as long as Waddle did, would he be looked on as the better player? I think Di Canio was the more exciting player with just as much, if not more skill.

 

Ouch.......

My old man, a good judge of quality players, has always said that Fantham was his favourite and only one player came close to him in terms of getting him out of his seat and that was di Canio!

 

Sheridan was my favourite...🤭

This sort of post just makes me cry.  What a wonderful team we had.  Many supporters have no idea just how good we were to watch back then.....😟

Agree with ya dad on Di canio

Off the pitch a complete tool but on it he was excellent 

Not had a more talented forward since

Ive always found it quite embarassing how Wednesday fans wet their knickers over Waddle,we signed him in his winter years,when all the leaves had fallen off and way past his best and we managed to coax the last drop of quality hed got in the tank for about 18 months,his best,most productive years were always at the clubs hed played for way before he came to Wednesday and yet some would have you believe he was a wednesday legend..........not by some distance was Waddle a Wednesday legend,he had an indian summer,but it was brief in comparison to others
