Did we beat arsenal at home in big Ron's second stint as manager or was shreeves still caretaker manager at that point?

Yep officially big rons first return game. 2-0 win and probably amongst my top 3 atmospheres watching wednesday  the kop was deafening that day

Certainly did. We drew a pre season game at saltergate 00 before that. Remember talking to Shelton, megson and pat heard in a pub after the game. They were so depressed, saying they couldn’t understand how Wilco wanted them play, and that it would be a long season because he didn’t know what he was doing. So we were depressed. Went to Swansea ( who I think had just been relegated?) won 1 0 with Micky Lyons scoring the only goal. The first of an unbeaten 19 game run that led to promotion.

Thank you, I only remember monk's and Jos's. Also going back to the list Pulis is are 2nd Welsh manager after Terry Yorath. 


"The trouble with "lessons from history" is that we usually read them best after falling flat on our chins."   

 

"Girls are simply wonderful. Just to stand on a corner and watch them go past is delightful. They don't walk. At least not what we do when we walk. I don't know how to describe it, but it's much more complex and utterly delightful. They don't move just their feet; everything moves and in different directions . . . and all of it graceful."  Starship Troopers, Amen!

Also Len Ashurst after he left us in the 70s, became Newport County's greatest ever manager. Achieving their highest League position and a European Cup Winners Cup QF place for Pulis' hometown club in the early 80s. Ashurst's Newport County team had ex Wednesday player Tommy Tynan in attack alongside a young John Aldridge.

Automatic promotion form - so those people that say sacking a manager doesn’t work are wrong- they just need to it more, much more and they’d be in the PL in no time.

Big Jack’s first game was the midweek after the Chesterfield game which he famously watched from the North whilst considering the job. In his first game, at Exeter, we lost.

 

Also worth mentioning that back in the 30’s Billy Walker was unbeaten in his first 16 games as Wednesday boss.
