  1. Was there SP it was my elevnth birthday present for the 3rd Feb. David Briggs played in the first game. I was mascot for the next home game against PNE we won 5-1 . Ron Springett took me onto the pitch. Oh happy days.
  2. I was a fan of all three moreso Rhodes, ( he just has not performed for us) but the manager has decided for one reason or another it,s time to move on , so lets give him our support. As we stand anything is possible promotion,relegation is also a possibility , knowone knows what the outcome of our EFL charge will be it,s all speculation at this time. Like many on the site i,m fully behind a clear out ,but i also like many think GM has been left holding the bad set of cards and a full house looks very unlikely, he certainly is holding no aces. he just has to play with what he,s been dealt. All that,s left to say is get on with it GM.
  3. R. I. P Harry, l was privileged to see him a couple of times and often wonder would we have scored seven that cold night in Feb 1961 if Harry had played.
  4. This club is sinking faster than the Bismark and for all the good of DC,s intentions, and he has , little is happening, which shows on the field. As the saying goes, " While the cats away the mice will play" there should be someone permanently at the club who is able to to see to the day to day running of the club at top level. I do not doubt DC,s ability as a businessman but SWFC is all i,m interested in either spend more time at the club of which i am led to believe he his limited to do or he has to delegate responsibility.( being on the other end of a phone or sending emails does not get the job done quickly) This appears to be another wasted season for the fans and if this carries on it could turn out to be even longer. The ball is in your half DC. the backing is there just give us a team worthy of our support.
  5. Think it,s time for DC to make a statement has to what is happening at our club and what lies ahead. All this uncertainty/rumours just does not help anyone.
  6. Your next lamb to the slaughter would be, who.
  7. We keep hearing all the rumours of what is going on at our club, but if there is a problem between manager and players (and i do believe it to be true) then why cannot the club captain get involved , Surely in his position he his there representative and the voice of the players who if they feel they are being scapegoated he should mediate on there behalf. I fully understand why the club would want to keep this under wraps, but lets be knowing the truth before we take sides. is my view.
  8. Between the two teams it,s no win in twelve,Ii don,t see Reading doing anything other than parking the bus , whether we can break them down is questionable We all keep saying something has to be changed to get things back on track, but what is the solution. I for one have written this season off and a lower mid table position seems to be what we are at present with this squad.
  9. Thanks for spending so much time on your reply. Most of your points are valid, i don,t see where you think we would struggle., thats your opinion. There was no reason when the season began that those players should not be competative .It was around christmas things just went to pieces for what reason i just dont know but it wants sorting.
  10. Goes from bad to worse, Forestieri wing back, asking for trouble. Some of that team should take a look at themselves. Has GM got a problem with some of the players? Things are not going well and lose Saturday and he is in for a rough ride. You have to feel for the fans who went to the game. Even my patience is being put to the test.
  11. As indifferent as the team are playing, we have still sold out our allocation of tickets. Surely the fans deserve something to cheer about having travelled all that way. I ,ll go same as saturday 1-1 , ( without a goalkeeping error for their goal)
  12. This is what happens when you give out four year contracts. The manager is not to blame for our predicament, someone has i,ll advised our chairman i.m.o. and now we are picking up the pieces.
  13. Everyone agreed that we needed players in, we got them in, now let's see some attacking football from the first minute and goals going in. Both clubs need points, dip your bread, Owls to win by 3-0
  14. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lancashire-51356850 So sorry to hear of Tony,s demise, I like many of you out there will remember Tony from his early years in the Sheffield sunday and Hatchard league,s with Arbourthorne Community and Frechville , He was a very good inside forward who spent fifty years in the game and i for one would say that is legend status All the best to Tony and his family in the future..
  15. Members 2,991 posts Joined Feb 2008 Report post #10 Posted 35 minutes ago I don,t have a problem with a player staying with a club for ten years maybe. The problem is when they have a contract they have nothing to work for, they know they are on easy street , that,s when problems can start . I personally would only offer two years contracts with a bonus plus a revue. Then both sides could make a decision. Its one of the reasons why we are in the mess we are. you just cannot get rid of them and rightly so. I very much understand your point of view though.. The point i am making in the above post.

  17. Team selection should be interesting. Of the three incomers only DaCruz is available for selection , Wickham and Windass not available till next week and those who have been told what there future holds are not going to be to bothered even though they need to show future employers their capabilities, ( i say that loosely). Millwall doing ok , i,ll take a draw in the situation we are in.
  18. Take the top six clubs out of the major leagues in Europe and the rest would struggle in the championship i.m.o.
  19. Good luck to him, my only question is , Who is selecting these players, and in our situation , Why are we still giving out four year contracts. (Dawson)
  20. There is always the F. A cup. This squad of players is not going to get promotion.
  21. Need to get three points tonight to get back into the mix. That team should be good enough, but it's the Owls we, re talking about. I, ll just take a win.
  22. How about both Sheffield clubs to play both Manchester club s.
