Sheffield Wednesday v Rotherham United


Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

 

Well who'd have thought it. The might of The Massive slugging it out with Toytown to stay up. How the mighty have fallen eh? 

 

Looking through the titles of your threads I can see you think the outlook of surviving is pretty bleak given your current situation. Not helped by the chairman  (oh sugar I've spilt my Elev8 energy drink on my new £58 Elevate shirt. Please someone, ring me a taxi. No, not City Cars, I much prefer to ride with DTaxis. Yes I know I've spent £47 to get a seat in the newly sold Hillsborough but I really need to get back to Rotherham and change this shirt.) 

 

Anyway, enough of the banter. Wednesday's game is season defining. The winner keeps in touch with the pack above but lose and you're really getting cut adrift with a mountain to climb. I wouldn't say it's impossible for the loser to stay up but it'll be a momentous effort to avoid relegation won't it?

 

In many ways we are in similar form. We've both had good runs recently but then gone through an awful run in the last couple of weeks. From our point of view it's not looking good. Ihekwie, our main centre back is suspended. Wood and Robertson have been injured leaving one fit centre half in a back line where we've been playing 3. In short, its going to force a change of formation and players playing out of position.

 

Our poor run of form has coincided with losing Jamie Lynsdey to a long term injury. He was the main man in our high press game. Without him and a lack of goals up front I'm a little nervous for this game. 

 

As an optimist though I'll stick my neck out and say it'll be a tight affair and we'll score late to get a 1 nil win.

Sure you said earlier in the season that you would finish above us easily? 

Must be gutting for you that we have actually won more points on the pitch despite gifting you 3 at your place.

We’ve had several must win games recently and we’ve lost them all so we’re already “ cut adrift with a mountain to climb”.

We don't have any decent forwards so this shouldn't be a problem for you.

Biggest game of the season for the mini pigs.

 

Sounds like if we attack we could score a few. Will they ever be any good at this level?

 

Fully expecting a 3 -0 loss.

Do you think George Hirst has a sniff of playing in this one?

I actually do think he might start Hirst just for the fact he'll be fired up for it at Hillsborough. He's only had a few starts early in the season and usually comes on for the last 10 or 20 mins if we're losing. He never looks like scoring but always runs about a lot and gives his all. He just doesn't seem up to this level but he is fairly young so could prove me wrong over time.

I don't know if I'm happy or worried Darren Moore has come in. Never really rated him and Donny were in awful form but I still worry about the new manager bounce

Probably end a draw which doesn't help either club, especially if other results don't go our way.

Maybe. I'd take a draw now. Keeps Wednesday below us and stops the gap getting bigger

You only pop up on here when Wednesday are struggling and I'm sure you said you would be blowing us away earlier in the season.
