Stats or entertainment? Which do you want?

Can't have both with Wednesday, stats are good, entertainment, well it aint't.

 

Me I go to enjoy it, and I haven't this season.

 

Is that a stat??????

 




No but I totally understand why people want and need entertainment


I get it


I do too

What I don't understand are the fans who say that promotion is all that matters and that it doesn't matter if we play like Brazil or scrape through and go up as all that matters is that promotion, but then start crying because the season isn't entertaining enough for them.

They had top division players - Moore doesn't have that

Don’t be daft.  Any of our players would grace game being played today.  We have the best squad that has ever been assembled.  They would be 70 points clear by now with a barely competent manager.

Racking up stats against the dog and duck means nothing of you come up short when it matters most 



I post stats on a regular basis

Unbeaten in ten games - amazing stat that and very positive


Third in the league at the halfway stage - another positive stat


Within touching distance of an automatic promotion spot


Second only to Man City this year in terms of goals scored in the entire four divisions in this country - amazing amazing statistic

 

Our keeper has more clean sheets than any other keeper in the four divisions - another positive stat



But when I post these, the Moore Out mob just poo poo them and say 'Meh - MOORE OUT!!' etc

The only stat that matters to me is that Sheffield Wednesday are in the 3rd division

Plymouth away this season ❌

 

Ipswich home this season ❌

 

Derby to go top ❌

 

Exeter to go 2nd ❌

 

Oxford to go 2nd ❌

 

Time to deliver 




You can't get promoted on Sunday 18th December

 

Honestly some of these posts are like following someone round as they trim their hedge shouting at them

 

"You're never going to trim it all"

"you should be trimming the hedge in a more entertaining way"

"You've not trimmed the whole hedge yet"

Meanwhile the man trimming the hedge just goes about his business in a dignified, classy way and gets it done whilst the mob at the bottom of his ladders cry out for a new person to trim the hedge and try to convince passers by to booo the man trimming his hedge

You’re not a acknowledging one vital piece of information 

 

The guy who is currently trimming the hedge has never actually successfully finished trimming a hedge before.  




Ahhh honestly - just bore off with that nonsense


It's irrelevant to the baying mob shaking his ladders trying to get him ousted

 

(and we all know the second the hedge trimming man is replaced, the same baying mob will cry out for the new bloke to get sacked too)

We've scored a million goals - but the football is cr4p.

We've got a million points - but the football is cr4p.

We've got some clean sheets - but the football is cr4p.

 

A bit like when you go out for a meal, you fancy a nice hearty plate of comfort food, a nice stew, a meaty pie - but instead you are served a bowl of steam, with some pink himalayan salt on it served inside a sock. It's been prepared by a 3 times Michelin rated chef, the experts tell you it's brilliant, people with funny beards are queuing outside to get in - it should be great, but you know yourself its just over complicated cr4p.

 

It's the run up to Christmas, you fancy watching a 'take you brains out film' so you want to watch Die Hard or Trading Places - but instead something with Woody Allen or Ralph Fiennes comes on, some guy who loves 'arty' films, especially if they are in black and white and a bit like a Coen Brothers movie tells you it is great, it will be up for an Oscar - but you watch it, your mind starts drifting, your bellies still rumbling from earlier and your wishing you were watching Bruce Willis punching an helicopter instead.

 

That's what watching football under Moore is like. You can see it with your own eyes, you can hear it with your own ears - the stats are just stats, they don't really mean anything if they are not giving you any pleasure, any enjoyment any promotions. I have no problem with Moore at all, I think he is a smashing fella, a genuine nice guy - but I personally feel he is out of his depth, he has lost his way and we are going backwards, our football is slow, boring, defensive and predictable.

 

Much like before, when we have been in a reasonable position, but appear unable to make that final push - a change is required, like when Jones came in and got us over the line - does anybody genuinely believe we would win the play-offs with Moore in charge, I certainly don't - nothing in his CV, in the 'big games' gives me that impression.

 

We are just stumbling along, hoping Bannan will win us a game, collecting players that we are never going to play, and if we do play them, playing them in the wrong positions - how many Mighten's, Wilkes, Corblimey trousers et all do we need to sign before we wake up and realise that tactically Moore his limited at best, maybe he is a good coach, I'm not seeing many signs of motivational skills, we come out at half time half asleep, we don't show up in big games, we freeze when it matters.

 

I don't blame the fans like some on here do (over 22k, the week before Christmas on a slippy, freezing day, after 22 years of dross is amazing) - some of them booed how dare they, have they got eyes and ears of their own or something?

 

Statman, Scatman, Batman - don't mean diddly, the wool is well away from our eyes......

 

Great Post

 

Says it how it is.

literally NOT true

Ok. 1989 west was a flop. Hirst wasn’t getting picked by Eustace. Witton scored the iconic goal against boro to keep us up. Who was our best striker. You can put it in capitals and exclamation marks and say literally and back it up with stats if you want. But I was there and that’s how I remember it. So who was it. Literally of course

“ hello Moore’s hedges”

 

” oo hello I’m after someone to come and trim my hedge”

 

”you’ve come to the right place”

 

”have to much experience in trimming hedges?”

 

”I’ve started a couple but never actually finished trimming a hedge”
