That was my initial reaction too. I thought Mego was the one to get them up for it in the play offs and that Dave Jones might not as he let an 11 point lead slip at Wolves and West Brom beat them to it with Megson as manager. He did get them up the following season though (beating United at Cardiff).
Having said that, the Derby apart, recent results and performances have been terrible. Wednesday have struggled against the poorer sides this season and I think that's to do with the style of football they play. It seems to work against the better sides like United but in the other games it's like against like and they cancel each other out.
I was very surprised that Jonesy got a 3.5 year contract. Manderic has to back him big style if we don't make it this season. So I'm starting to come around to his way of thinking. We'll see what happens tonight.
I do feel for Gary. I remember him in tears after one of the semi final defeats in the 80s and he'll have shed a few last week.
