  1. Really? Both were well-established foreign managers with several years management experience with one of the biggest and most successful clubs in Europe! Farke managed for 8 years in Germany, including 2 with the mighty Borrusia Dortmund. Wagner was Borussia Dortmund's manager for 4 years before he came here. Over this period Borussia Dortmund have emerged as one of Germany's top teams. Are you seriously asking me "what are the serious financial issues"? I can't believe any Wednesday fan would not know what they are? Unless you are thinking that the sale of the Hillsborough stadium, to yourselves, has eliminated them. Which it hasn't btw. I mean, look...I hear it a lot, one set of Sheffield fans calling the other set "deluded" or something. For what it's worth, I have nothing whatsoever against Sheffield Wednesday, or Sheffield Wednesday fans. I think it's fantastic that there is such passion and support for both our city clubs. And I don't think the supporters of one club are any better or worse than the other. But if you are being serious with your comments, and you are totally unaware that your club has serious financial issues, then I am gobsmacked tbh. You must be the only Wednesday fan in the whole city who isn't aware of them! (I hadn't heard that Bullen had ruled himself out btw when I wrote this. Very wise I'd say!).
  2. We need a player like McBurnie for his height, but Maupay would be excellent too. I hope it's not one or other! Chances are though I think Maupay will be off to West Ham.
  3. That's the spirit!😊 Yes, Bruce will get a few million I expect for having to be manager of Sheffield Wednesday. 😂
  4. I said it was "less silly" than the suggestion that Wilder was about to leave United. I can't say I blame him. A chance to manage his boyhood club, in the Prem, versus a chance to manage a club with serious financial issues and players on big wages and out of contract, in the Championship. It will be interesting to see who Wednesday bring in next? An unheard of foreign manager with no knowledge of the EFL? Or will they go for the "sentimental approach" and offer it to Lee Bullen? I think they will offer it to Lee Bullen. Good luck to him if they do - but he'll have a tough job on his hands - a major overhaul of the club is needed and I think you need managerial experience and lots of it to pull that one off successfully.
  5. No it isn't Sir! Sorry Sir! Mis-read the previous Sir! Are you a schoolteacher by any chance? 😊
  6. On the approach to the roundabout, the nearside lane is signposted as a left turn only - that's maybe why?
  7. Made our 3rd visit to Oisoi recently. Becoming quite a regular there now since the recommendation on here from the minxy one. Our previous visit was about a month ago. On that occasion the food was very good again, but they'd sellotaped some pages of the menu together, the section with the Korean dishes in it. That was a shame, because on our first visit we had Bibimbap - which, if you haven't tried it - is a delicious mix of meat and vegetables in a hot stone bowl, with a spicy sauce to mix in - and an egg on top. So, Bibimbap sadly off the menu then on that occasion. When we asked why we were told that there was a problem with the kitchen downstairs and it's a dish that takes a lot of kitchen space to make - so they've had to stop making it whilst they get the kitchen fixed. (Seemed a bit of a strange one - but hey-ho!). So on our most recent visit we looked forward to them having the kitchen fixed and being able to order Bibimbap again. No such luck I'm afraid. The kitchen is still out of order downstairs apparently. So no Bibimbap. And that section of the menu is still sellotaped together - which kind of suggests this could be a longish-term thing? On this occasion as well, they had ran out of Sake. I enjoy Sake with my meal and Oisoi have a long list of about 8 different types of it - but they only had flavoured sparkling sake left, no still sake that could be heated. Otherwise, the food was delicious as usual. I'll try and resist going for another month or so and let's see what happens next time - but it feels to me like some cracks are starting to appear and they are reducing their service and the options available. It's often the first sign of a restaurant in trouble. Let's hope not - because it's the best new restaurant in Sheffield for a good few years. Maybe it's too good for Sheffield?
  8. I wouldn't be surprised if the idea to load it up with other ingredients came from America! "Deep pan" style. Have you seen how many calories are in a Domino's pizza btw? (On their official site they quote calories by 1/8th of a pizza - they are that high!) The following taken from the web: Domino's. A large, 14-inch hand-tossed pepperoni pizza from Domino's has 2,370 calories. If you substitute thin crust for hand-tossed, the calories drop to 1,870. So one of these is over the daily recommended calorie intake for a man. I'm not a fan of Domino's pizza, but our kids like them and have ordered them regularly over the years, so I've tried them. They are nothing like real pizza of course - not the dough, not the toppings, no resemblance at all really. Back to real pizza then and I do like a few toppings on my pizza. I like pepperoni, salame, ham, mushrooms, nduja sausage, peppers, and chilli in particular (not all on the same pizza!). But they are best added sparingly.
  9. The Maupay thing is full of conjecture and contradiction. Latest is Brentford are saying no one has made an approach or offer for him. But other sources are saying different. I hope the Blades can sign him - he would be a great signing. We'll need McBurnie as well though, not one or the other. And I suspect that's the plan. Maybe one will be finalised this week, but not till end of the week as Maupay is away in Germany with Brentford. Lerrem feight! 😄
  10. Nah! Can't be! Wednesday are MASSIVE! Their fans are always telling us that. Which division are they in again? 😂
  11. What if I snook in the back way from Ringinglow Moor, coming down past the Scotsman's Pack?
  12. I think it was an education building, possibly owned by Sheffield University, before. But I'm not certain. It certainly wasn't a bar when I was out on the scene in the late 1970's.
  13. I can feel a culture thread coming on. That's why I'd never eat in such a place. Oh dear! And you think it's good then that they can produce your meal before you get back to your seat? 😲 You prefer that to having to wait a little while for something made from fresh ingredients, that's not been filled with preservatives, previously frozen and re-heated in the microwave? Not for me I'm afraid. I value my health too much.
  14. I tried this place tonight for a take-away, based on your recommendation. It was excellent! Thank-you. I went for the Diavola. £7.50. Good size. Nice fresh ingredients and beautiful base. The base, is what makes a good pizza to me, just as in real-life where the base makes a good person! There seems to be a fairly limited range of options in terms of different types of pizza, compared to say, Proove. But the quality is excellent. I haven't had better in Sheffield put it that way - and I'm grateful to you and to Sheffield Forum for finding out about this.
