It goes around in circles fella, I was there when you did the same thing to us under Bassett 91-92 season, 2-0 at your place and 3-1 at ours, we had the best team there has been at S6 in my lifetime back then, but you did us, we got over it, we finished 3rd in the league and beat you the season after in the Wembley semi final.
Enjoy your moment, we will have to take it on the chin, that's how it goes until next time it get's reversed, for now you can all be as smug as you like, it won't last forever though UTO !

As for the performance, we've been better than that, but we were certainly by far a better team.
The owls had a good 15 minutes in the second half, but even in that time we had a fantastic chance to score again.

1 team wanted it, the other team didn't (except for Hooper and bannan).
1 manager had his tactics right, the other mamager hadn't done his homework correctly.

Seeing the comments from owls, saying they can't name any players for us, show how much they know of their surroundings I'm this league and their naivety of other teams.

The amount of posts I've seen online regarding how we will be put in out place etc. Well this has made it all the more sweeter.

It's another 3 points. Thank you very much
Fair enough, I don't shy away from being wrong like some.

I don't know many united players either to be fair, I don't know many Chezzy or Donny players either, they are not my team and until two months ago not playing in the same division.

Pick you up on both points if i may. I am a Blade (obviously) but have seen Wednesday a few times and know quite a few of your players, although I accept you have "bigger" names in your squad. I can't believe you didn't watch United prior to Sunday, to see what you would be up against.
On the second point, Wednesday have been slow starters and i got the impression this season, you would be quicker out of the blocks to try and confirm that elusive 2nd place?

On another note and as i said i have seen Wednesday a few times (hence my previous comments about Hutchinson) and if I was an owl, I would be absolutely livid that you have no idea which Wednesday are going to turn up.
From champions elect almost (Newcastle last season) to the shambles, especially in defence this Sunday.

Its just me...i've never been interested in United or who plays for them..i've not watched any of your games live or on TV for years...other than when they play Wednesday...why would i..?....

To be honest,i expected Wednesday to be challenging for the top 2 places this season...Carlos has had long enough to build his team into one that challenges for automatic rather than just a top six place..although still a long way to go this season..

I think the next two games could be pivotal for Wednesday's season and no doubt Carlos will be under extreme pressure if 2 more defeats follow Sunday's non-performance.

To be fair that defensive performance was completely out of character and the worst I've seen for years at S6.

You hope.Looking at the pre match views from the owls they only had to turn up.You lot have been warned for weeks what to expect but you lot just laughed it off saying we are a pub team and how we will struggle in this league.We have no skill and we depend on work rate only and that is not enough in this league .Well what a shock you had .Fleck and Company ran the mid field and the young lad turned you inside out as did Duffy when he came on.

I think if Sharpe had played the score line would have had a more realistic look about it.

I'm with sheri, I've never actually seen you play other than goal highlights so I wouldn't of had a clue how you play and and although I know a few players names and the odd positions they play thats about it.
It is frustrating not knowing which team is going to turn up, if we had played like we did in the first 20 minutes of the second half for 60/70 minutes of the game I'm sure the result would of been more favourable but thats football, a strong performance against brum will go some way to healing the wounds

You should beat Brum, 1point from last 4 games and second from bottom

the problem I have noticed that no one mentions ,have you noticed a problem if the owls have to play more than 1 game a week,is it tiredness due to tempo of the way we play or the age of squad,any one else noticed.

It's quite comical, I do wish he (and the players) would have shown the same passion on Sunday though

Yeah, that was my initial thought.
Obviously the pressure eventually got to him
