Rumour we could play at Bramhall lane until the sort out the pitch at Hillsborough. Pitch might not be ready until October!

Must admit, the story did sound believable until you remembered the date it was published. One of the best April Fool jokes that day. Which doesn't say a lot for the quality of pranks I copped for that day. Bring on Huddersfield. Uto

Lloyd Isgrove, a winger from Southampton has signed until the end of the season.Could be a good signing, if only we had a striker who could put the ball IN the net. How many sitters have we missed this season. We need to get a striker in on Loan NOW(The one Gray wants to BUY for next season), and bed him into the team during the rest of this season. Then with a good pre season, he will hit the ground running with a couple of goals in the opening match, with another 30 to follow during the remainder of the season. Just dreaming again. UTO

{Ed001's Note - he looks a quality player Isgrove, could be a great signing that. He stands out as one of their better youth players, and I am sure you know how good their youth system is.}

Believable4 Unbelievable0

20 Mar 2015 00:32:17
The same applies to Bus I guess, as he is still an unknown quantity.
Hopefully a good pre season will get him sorted.
Heard good things about Isgrove and it will be interesting to see how our forwards react to a bit of class out wide.

Jordan Rhodes & Connor Wickham?

Believable2 Unbelievable6

16 Mar 2015 12:34:43
Wickham for me plus I'd like to see wright phillips and matt phillips and mcgugen signed up and two new defenders. plus we must tie Westwood down to a longer contract and semido.

Agree4 Disagree3

16 Mar 2015 19:12:05
I think we can do better than Wright-Phillips for the money we will have. Agree that we need to focus on wingers though, and I would go with Wickham too

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Mar 2015 08:59:10
Would prefer Wickham to Rhodes but wouldn't really want either, Wilson or gestede would be better imo, would also love to try and sign Pritchard from Tottenham, amazing no 10.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Mar 2015 15:34:05
How about Patrick Bamford?

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Mar 2015 19:10:33
Good call, Bamford is proven quality at Championship level. Would Chelsea let him go though? I like Demarai Gray at Brum, would be a bit of a punt as he's not had much game time but from what I've seen, he's could be the exciting winger we are crying out for.

I saw something else this morning that says Rhodes will be going on loan to Derby if Blackburn get knocked out of the FA cup by Liverpool today.

I've got to admit it does sound good I can't remember the last time we was linked with a player over a million lol

08 Mar 2015 12:49:26
Surely there are better strikers for £12million?
I would be over the moon if we spent £1.2million on a player.

Agree4 Disagree1

08 Mar 2015 13:15:10
Lmn who would you go for?.

Agree3 Disagree2

I am one of the fans old enough to remember the complete and utter mess a certain Mr Richards made of our beloved club by gambling our future on signings we ultimately couldn't afford. So let's build slowly but surely and forget putting all our eggs in one £12m basket. £5m to £6m would buy us the 2 wingers we need and secure McGuigan as a creative midfielder. I for one still believe May can fire us up the championship if we can create clear cut chances for him

Agree5 Disagree4

08 Mar 2015 23:33:06
Not sure milan. How much is Wickham worth these days? Lol
I agree with nday though, securing McGugan is a must, but still not sold on May.
I was also impressed with Drenthe, but his end product wasn't 100%. Much better than Maghoma.

Agree3 Disagree1

09 Mar 2015 11:21:32
Been watching premiership matches Wickham looks out of hid depth if we are going for premiership next season why spend £12 k on someone who can't hack it with big boys could Rhodes no big clubs come for him

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Mar 2015 11:26:27
Surely it can't be true £12m yes he has consistently scored in the Championship but surely NO

Agree2 Disagree0

10 Mar 2015 09:03:58
More reports I am seeing today saying Norwich and Notts Forest as well as Derby are interested in loaning Rhodes. Report on Notts Forest's interest gives an 8M price tag. I think Wickham would be worth a shot. For some reason he seems to be being played in a wider role with Sunderland this season which is not his best place. When he played for us it showed how good he was playing down the centre.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Mar 2015 13:10:22
We can all relax about the Rhodes situation because if there is any truth in our interest, Rhodes still has 3-4yrs left on his contract so he will decide which club he wants to go to.
It's then down to Blackburn to try to do a deal with that club if they want to move him out.
I doubt whether we will be doing any £12m for any single player deals because we need a "few" decent players - and we still have to comply with the FFP Rules despite having a new owner who appears ready to spend.

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Mar 2015 11:53:30
Middlesborough and Notts Forest have both cooled there interest in Rhodes. I'm guessing Blackburn will be waiting to see how their replay goes before deciding if they want to loan him out. One thing a mate pointed out to me the other day is that Blackburn are quite far in debt and are looking to sell players in the summer so he may be available a bit cheaper than the £12M that has been quoted

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Mar 2015 21:51:29
Yeah sure we just need to make even MORE chances for stevie may

that useless turd has missed more one-on-ones and open goals than the rest of the team put together and that includes Nuhiu and his weeekly 2yd header miss.

The problem is, all may does is get these chances and miss them or occasionally score them. he rarely dribbles or passes in a constructive manner, he can't hold the ball up and he often makes poor decisions. I hope he can turn it around but ultimately I don't think he's at the pace of the championship right now and certainly not capable of leading the line for a credible title challenge team.

Who in their right mind would try to suggest that because he's picked up an award at a Charity Dinner he's a better manager than Jose? Or Wenger or Pochetino using that logic!
Why would we be interested anyway?
He's walked out on his city job, walked out on Watford, now he's walking out on Brentford.
Best thing he can do is apologise and hope they keep him on at Brentford because he'll be lucky to get somebody to take him on with his attitude.

Could be great for Wednesday but sg how long as he got

Agree6 Disagree19

27 Feb 2015 10:04:19
I think he will get to the end of the season and it depends on where we finish. Personally I think 8th to 11th will see him keep his job any lower might be a problem for him

Agree6 Disagree6

27 Feb 2015 11:19:28
The owners are not stupid, I beieve they will recognise what some of our fans fail to see.
SG has real ability which is obvious from what he has achieved with a low quality squad and the minimal support that MM has admitted he has struggled to provide him with this past 12months.
He has got the team competing against teams (and managers!) with much bigger and better resources and at the same time overseen the improvement in the general football health of the club.
They will, unlike some of our supporters, look beyond recent results and recognise that he has been squeezing every last drop out of our squad for a long time and at times the well has run dry, and the true limitations of our team are then highlighted.
I think and hope will be given the backing he needs to show what he is capable of.

Agree23 Disagree2

27 Feb 2015 12:21:10
hOWler I don't totally disagree with what you are saying, my opinion is that SG while as you say has done wonders with what he has at his disposal we never look an attacking threat, OK we have scored 5 in the last 2 matches but we are not consistent, quite often we are set up to stop the other teams from scoring. You must agree that finishing in the top half of the table will be progress, what I am saying is that we need that step up, can SG provide it with financial clout, we will see. I like Stuart Gray and will continue to support him and our new owners whatever happens

Agree9 Disagree2

27 Feb 2015 12:43:51
My view is that after a takeover there is normally an agenda to get a 'name' as manager. I think he has done a great job (Milan included) because we have moved forward every season.

But, with new owners and more resources available the expectation will be that the rate of progress needs to be quicker. And, the only part that new chairman has seen has been underwhelming.

John west has got to live up to the promise he made his son and SG's profile and reputation is built on being a good coach, rather than manager.

As I've said before, the worst thing is to decide whether he goes after first 10 matches next season.

Agree1 Disagree16

27 Feb 2015 13:10:52
Exactly the point I keep making Owl1950, the critics of SG keep referring to how we set up to play - hard to beat but not a real threat - the quality of his signings not the best ?? All true enough perhaps.
But the signings are all he has been able to bring in, surely everybody must be able to see that at least? He would obviously be after the very best available IF we could have afforded them BUT he has had to shop in football Poundland.
Having said that all the players he has brought in have moved us forward a stage IMO.
As for the "tactics", surely the managers job is first and foremost to get the best out of what you have available, and he has done that since the first day he took over and should have nothing to prove to any of our fans .
Some of the "names" put forward just make me shudder? The FL has dozens of managers who keep doing the rounds, getting sacked, picked up by somebody else, getting sacked again, and some of our fans churn these names out and think they would be better at S6 than what we have found !
For example we ended our own recent lean spell this week by taking apart Millwall, the following morning two of our wise men are putting Olly's name forward to take over again ?? A couple of good seasons at Blackpool and he's a must have for us ? WHY?
I accept football is all about opinions, but surely you have to base opinions on reality and facts .

Agree17 Disagree2

27 Feb 2015 14:12:00
Hi Des, totally respect that view and can't disagree with anything you say, I'm absolutely sure those thoughts will be with the new owners.
All I would say though is we all know there are no guarantees in football?
If we were to change the manager to ensure we make progress in the first 10 matches and beyond next season - who would that be?
David Moyes surely couldn't fail at ManU with his pedigree and the resources he was given - could he?
Van Gaal almost won World Cup but still not sorted it out yet despite spending loads more?
AVB won Champs Lge how could he fail at Chelsea with their squad, and fail again at Spurs with £100m "Bale" transfer fund?
Like most things in life, we should be careful what we wish for. Sometimes what you are looking for can be right under your nose.

Agree15 Disagree3

27 Feb 2015 14:45:37
Guys I am not saying get shot of him, I am simply posing a question, to see what the wider audience think

Agree2 Disagree2

27 Feb 2015 16:25:44
I totally get that Owl1950 and I don't think we are too far apart really?
I'm not saying stick with SG at all costs either. I just firmly believe that IF we are going to change we have to be REALLY SURE we are changing for the better.
Because although some of our fans don't appreciate it - SG knows his stuff and there aren't that many in football these days that do!!

Agree17 Disagree3

27 Feb 2015 19:50:30
Big thing I feel is missing from our team is some good wide players. SG concentrated on making our defensive play better and strengthening the defence but he had no resource left to improve the forward play so had to go with what he had in the squad. We never replaced Antonio properly and didn't have anyone else to play the other wing and that is where we are lacking. With better supply I think our forwards will get more chances and score more goals.

Agree4 Disagree1

28 Feb 2015 06:01:44
I think sg will be replaced at the end of the season,, new owners new man is how 99 per cent of the time it works out like in football,, I was looking at dom howson twitter and Milan says that our new owner is building a big property and Construction business as well as saying g his family are rich powerful people it makes you wonder if some of the consortium is his family.

Agree3 Disagree13

28 Feb 2015 08:04:15
I believe John Deehan is the attacking coach, he replaced Paul Wilkinson and I do not think either of them have done a good job. Stuart Grey appointed John Deehan so ultimately it is his responsibility but I am sure everyone will agree that to have achieved the league position he has with the players at his disposal is a fantastic achievement.

Agree9 Disagree4

Choose which way you cut it we are in for a roller coaster ride. Look at the money that's been pumped into the leading clubs apart from the sky money Also look at the way Leicester and Burnley took apart the Championship and are now well out of their depth.
Choose who manages, choose who runs the club, we may have two to three seasons in the Championship. At that point the real test begins, a further lengthy period of holding on like all the promoted clubs go through, most do not make it.
So let's all count our blessings, SG has been a real rock for this club. If he ever read this site God help him. Just remember the situation four or five years ago. Its like a dream come true for me, and as a life long supporter we now have every reason to look forward to the future. Divided we are week, together we are Wednesday

Agree12 Disagree1

02 Mar 2015 15:26:25
Well said South.
We have a wealthy and ambitious new owner, but more importantly he seems to have his head screwed on. ( - which really shouldn't surprise us having built a "PROPER" business empire. )
Yes we are going after the dream of the Prem, but thankfully we are going to do it in a sensible way - thankfully!
That way when we do reach our goal, hopefully we will be in better shape to remain there, because as you rightly South point out that's the hardest bit really !
It only takes ONE good season to get to the Prem but you have to be able to compete for a few seasons against much better competition to actually stay in the Prem .
I hope we can all fully support Mr Chansiri in achieving HIS aims - FOR US!!

What is it with Melo, does anybody know, he can't even get on the bench. Why buy somebody give them a 3 and a half year contact to sit in the stand, Vermijl not having it much better either. Bought 3 loaned 1 only the loaned playing, did SG have a say in their purchase I wonder

Agree2 Disagree0

05 Mar 2015 18:29:04
I'm sure he would have had a say, but Paul Aldridge has been Mr Wheeler Dealer with the final recommendation for past 4yrs, he's had too much power under MM IMO.
I know he has overruled Megson, DJ, and SG in turn on signings, hope Mr Chansiri reigns him in a bit, sure he will in time.
The DoF, a football man, should be working with the coach on recruitment, not a finance man who's priority is probably keeping his spreadsheets looking tidy

Agree2 Disagree0

05 Mar 2015 21:09:39
I've heard Melo isn't fully match fit. He needed to get some extra fitness training in to bring him up to speed with the british game and unfortunately picked up a minor injury which hasn't helped his progress.

No rush to replace Keane as Bus is coming up to full match fitness and other players available in the forward positions. Scouting is going on for loans for midfield and wingers especially and also possibly a central defender to cover Loovens loss.

Talking about Scottish fooball.Take a look on U Tube at the 27 goals Stevie May got for St.Johnstone. Four penalties, of the 23 others not one tackle, no bodily contact, plenty of time and space. You don't get that in Division 2. He must think the Championship is the Champions league

Oh Oh, I can smell the spelling police, and the Ofsted inspector.

Your thinking of pooball, that's when no one wants the ball, or challenges the player with the ball. Simular to football over the border.
Anyway its worth finding to study the brilliant goal keeping, and defending. Stevie Mays Goals U Tube.

Good news we scored 2, and Strads dud scored in open play, bad news still lost, worse news Westwood out for 2 games, might have been harsh though. SG said it is a season defining 5 games, I think it is a job defining 6 games

Agree2 Disagree1

22 Feb 2015 13:44:06
More chance of going down than going up now. The freaky start to the season is now well and truely over and a typical Wednesday season is now unfolding. SG must be dreading a phone call from the owner telling him to clear his desk. Fingers crossed we'll still be in this league next season. Oh and Keans still a dud in my opinion. Just one goal in open play in seven games simply isn't good enough. That would be an average of 6 goals per season.

Agree3 Disagree7

22 Feb 2015 14:27:23
I'd hate to have such a negative outlook on life as you do Strad. It's almost like you want us to be relegated, you were like this last year. This team is a whole lot better than last seasons team and yes we are having a bit of a rubbish run and let's be honest a bad run of injuries to key players but I think we have more than enough in this team to easily avoid relegation. But anyway, the negativity is your point of view and I know from last year you won't shake that so I will leave you with that and enjoy my positive outlook.

24 Feb 2015 17:49:18
Just a little question. If SG was to get the push then who would you fella's like to see in charge? A few guys at the Derby game were talking about Shearer, Di Canio or Carboni.

Agree0 Disagree5

24 Feb 2015 18:30:56
Hi Strad
On what basis would any of these people get the job of manager.
How long would it take do you think to install new manager, and then either motivate the rump of the present squad and after obtaining other players who could take you to a position of what you feel is satisfactory in your view, and what is that position.
Its my view we would need about 20 Million, and at that point we would be very short odds being back double quick in this league.
In my view it will take ages, and we are in for a very long haul, maybe four more seasons or more even. Who runs what in between times is academic, we will see quite a few managerial changes before it happens, what with big club, and fans expectation stuff, together with new owners and their stuff, may I suggest you settle down tighten your belt and enjoy the ride.

I would want none of those managers. If we are to swap SG for someone it has to be someone with a proven track record. All three you have mentioned are probably only good enough to be coaches at the club but definitely not manager material.

24 Feb 2015 20:58:22
May I just remind you south owl that what I said in my previous post was that "some guys" not myself mentioned the above mentioned names. Personally I'd go for someone with a proven record in this league who's got the ability to attract the right players.

25 Feb 2015 00:12:09
Would you care to give a few me a few managerial options then, and describe their track records for the job.
Perhaps you could also answer some of the other points I raised, so I might understand exactly what you do want, and what time scale you had in mind.
There comes a time when the balance has to change from all out frankness as you call it, to some thing more transparent in how you think the club can make improvements, and what other progress can be made, and how long it might take.
What exactly do you want from the club.
My take is sit back settle down, enjoy the ride, and think of Wednesday, and accept that only the management will manage this club.

Mark Warburton has done nothing he is nobody a flash in the pan who talks like one of the Pet Shop Boys. Come on next someone will be saying Stuart Pearce. let's look at it before last night 3 points from 21 shocking relegation form give him another chance 60 points is the minimum from now on to the end of the season.

Agree3 Disagree1

25 Feb 2015 17:37:36
Promotion from 2 leagues it looks like with the same club that's what he's achieved. We'd also get him at he end of the season for free. All his signings apart from the goalkeeper have been better than SG's so he also knows the market. He knows a good striker when he see's one too compared to SG.

Warburton is a distraction.

had we scored one extra goal per game we would be 10 points clear of the current league leaders.
Just get real and use the grey matter for a minute. Its two prolific strikers we need not back to the changing manager rubbish over the last twenty years.

Warburton loosing% 33.34
SG 35.22

All we need now is or me to pop in to Brentford, and let him know what you have decided.
In between times you could inspire the team and management at half time to improve the general well being in the dressing room.
That would be one way of getting rid of the out of contract players before the end of the season.
Then if you have a few minutes to spare you could motivate the crowd through the public address system. Why waste a talent like yours. Of course the down the side is you never talk about football, just desperate one liners.
What are the stats for Warburton 2012/13 2013/14 seasons any ideas, I won't hold my breath for a reply

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Feb 2015 09:07:20
Better than DJ and SG's combined. Next question. May I remind you football isn't a science it's a simple case of your players are good enough or they're not. Take a look at Dougie Freedman for example, shocking at Bolton but 5 wins out of 5 at Forrest. Nothing changed scientifically he simply inherited better players.

Agree1 Disagree7

26 Feb 2015 09:44:26
So if you are right about Friedman Strad, and I'm not disagreeing with you, its nothing to do with managers at all - its about having better players?
Well done - you've solved the problem!!
We can keep SG and just gradually get some better players.
But I thought that's what the majority of us had been saying all along?
In summary you can be the best manager in the world but if the players aren't good enough to beat the opposition regularly you won't progress.
SG has been getting our players to overperform for most of the past 12months so your solution is sack him and bring a "name" in.
There are loads of "names" out of work so perhaps they are not what you think they are either?

Agree7 Disagree0

26 Feb 2015 09:47:05
The only problem I have with that, the only season as a footballer in the football league, he could not get on with the manager, he walked at Watford, couldn't get on with people there, he's being pushed at Brentford, they can't get on with him. Get the drift. So you want him as manager

I have never been convinced that May can do the business. I have lost track the one on ones that he has failed to convert, what a waist of money.
Yet again another scuff, hitting the ball with the inside of his foot, with the goalkeeper on the deck. He will never make the grade in the Championship, regarding the Premier league in his wildest dreams, so get him out at the end of the year.
In my view we are building the team for a decent run in this league. We need a proven striker from the Championship, or above.
As much as I respect Gray, if he fails to address this he is a gonner at some point

09 Feb 2015 15:33:18
A "waist" of money. stockbroker belt?

Agree15 Disagree1

09 Feb 2015 17:53:23
I think he needs time I have lost count of the number of players that have come good after hillsborough because they weren't given time, I think he needs loaning out maybe but not selling, when Fergie was at Man Utd how many players did he sign that come good in there, second season.

Agree9 Disagree2

09 Feb 2015 18:10:06
Your bang on mate I've said it for ages. Gray is no good at finding strikers and Stevie May for all his hard work is out of his depth in this league. We really do need a genuine goal scorer or we're going nowhere.

Agree6 Disagree11

10 Feb 2015 05:51:03
To be fair we have gone somewhere.
From struggling at the bottom all season to a comfortable mid table.
Having said that May is IMO out of his depth.

May is out of his depth, and a waste ( Ofsted Corrected) of money, or does the rump of the problem lie in other areas.

Agree3 Disagree3

10 Feb 2015 09:15:11
IMO, the fact that May keeps missing his opportunities can only be blamed on himself.
We don't have a great deal of flair going forwards but it's nobody else's fault that he couldn't score in a crack den.

Agree5 Disagree2

10 Feb 2015 10:20:02
Goalscorer required ASAP. Come back Paul Warhurst all is forgiven.

10 Feb 2015 11:48:41
other areas Brighton there is no creativity and when the strikers get a chance they snatch at it becuase subconciously they know it MAY be a long time befor another comes along. Just look at last saturday and excellent well crafted ball up to MAY from Deilhna (err) and he hits the post one on one

Agree5 Disagree2

11 Feb 2015 00:27:41
Sorry folks but SG when he meets the new owners this week it could be is only meeting with them, because is record at present is a sacking, because he is a good man but not a winner

11 Feb 2015 05:53:33
I like Gray and it is far too early to be talking of his dismissal, but I must admit there are beginning to be concerns.

Agree4 Disagree2

11 Feb 2015 07:50:55
Let me remind you all of the question I posted a couple of weeks ago which was will SG still be at the helm next season. Currently 3 agree 14 disagree. Looks like the gap might be closing.

Agree2 Disagree8

11 Feb 2015 09:59:05
We should act now. Brian Laudrup is available at the moment and look what he did with Swansea. Gray's a decent bloke but he's took us as far as he's capable of. Our home record is laughable and his ability to find a goalscorer is inept.

Agree6 Disagree2

11 Feb 2015 11:43:03
All I would add is SG has greatly improved the team and performances over past year with little or nothing to spend.
May was best we could do with what he could raise - and only by selling an asset!
May does have promise and will improve, hopefully with us!
If SG had £10mill+ to spend on a striker it would be easier to find one that scores regularly perhaps, but budget strikers rarely join a club and start scoring 30goals a season.
He has now been given some support in market and he has bought some "low-value" players who will improve us when they bed in to the squad.
Finally checkout Laudrups record at Swansea, it was so good he got sacked not long after signing a new contract, and in any case he's headed for QPR.
If and when we do decide to replace SG I hope it is with a manager with more ability than him, and not one with a bigger name or reputation - remember Dave Jones?

Agree7 Disagree2

11 Feb 2015 13:49:34
Darren Bent would have been an obvious choice although at the time I am sure that money would have been a big factor. Let's be honest the season is all but written off, we are 9 points about the drop zone and 13 of the play off spot I am more worried about the 9 point gap than I am hopeful of the 13 point gap

Agree6 Disagree2

11 Feb 2015 13:59:43
We are starting to become unrealistic again Laudrup etc It is a manager who will get us out of this league. Then we will have to sack him and replace with the likes of well certainly not Laudrup to compete in the top flight. My question to you all is would you hand over millions to invest in the team this summer to Stu ????

Agree2 Disagree5

11 Feb 2015 14:36:02
Good Morning Howler
Being like yourself a true blue, as much as I would like Stevie May to do well, he does not have it on what we have seen to date. Not the pace, the heading ability, positional play in the box, goal poaching, but more importantly he is incapable of scoring from outside the box with a clean shot at pace and accuracy. I noted this in an earlier post, for this reason alone he will probably not make the grade. I have never seen a striker scuff so many shots, he somehow fails to make clean contact with the ball, keep an eye on it. Every striker worth his salt historically has been prolific at his age. Unless you can name the few exceptions.
As for the manager he had a common goal with every one connected with the club, that was avoid the drop. Can he now be productive enough to bring together a team challenging the leaders, which is capable of playing in the premiership with the addition of half a dozen new faces, we will have to see. Can he find two strikers capable of20-25 goals per season. That's what it will take or he is a gonner. Buying and loaning players who have yet to play in the big boys league may be SGs final throw I fear, and very risky. The new owners have I think witnessed one winning game, they will not allow that to continue much longer. Apology to the spelling police, and the Ofsted inspector.

Agree2 Disagree5

11 Feb 2015 17:30:09
Hi South
My only concern is that within just a couple of weeks of the takeover, there are already rumblings of demands for big money signings, and big name managers !
We Owls as much as anybody should appreciate that there are no short cuts to lasting success !
Spending and sackings, followed by more spending and sackings will only lead us back to where we were.
MM has steadied the ship and set us up to progress, it will happen if we do it the right way, sensibly.
Spending and sackings, followed by more spending and sackings lead nowhere.
I generally agree with yours and others assessments of our players, but they are all much better than what we had just 18months ago, and if we improve as much in next 12 to 18months we will probably be where we all want to be - I suggest?

Agree9 Disagree1

12 Feb 2015 00:49:07

12 Feb 2015 21:27:26
David Hirst got 6 goals in his first season from 21 apperances. Some of you guys would have had him thrown out of the club as a waste of money for stats like that. Give the guy a chance, his form is a bit rubbish at the moment but jumping on his back and screaming for him to be pushed out of the club won't help. Give him a loan to help him regain his confidence, he scored one goal everyone and a half games before and you don't loose that ability overnight but you can use your confidence that quick.

Agree10 Disagree2

13 Feb 2015 08:41:18
I take it you saw Hirsty when he first came, and younger, in a better class of football. Compairing him and Stevie May is the stuff of nightmares.
Regarding stats, just look at pace, shooting ability, heading ability, strength, shooting power he is not on the same planet, Stevie May needs six opportunities to score one goal. Hirsty needed a sniff and it was in the back of the net.

Agree4 Disagree6

13 Feb 2015 09:38:56
In his first season Hirst wasn't that good and was taking a couple of chances before every goal. A little like May now, he was feeling the pressure of moving to a big club, added to the fact that initially the fans weren't that happy with him for some of his comments before we signed him. Anyway looking beyond that I don't think our forwards are the problem. Having been to a few games this season the service to our forwards has deteriorated rapidly from the start of the season. If I was going to spend lots of money on the team the first place I would look would be midfield and especially the wide areas. With better service I think our forwards will score more goals, someone above said that because our service is so terrible the strikers are snatching at half chances as they don't know when the next chance will come. I've said before that given our midfield I don't think Shearer, Henry and Costa would score many goals. Anyway not much chance to change things around now, the sort of players we need won't be available in the loan window. Get behind the lads we do have in the squad and quit abusing them and maybe they may surprise you.

Agree8 Disagree3

13 Feb 2015 11:03:44
I do get behind the lads on match day, but you will at some point have to decide the difference between a silk purse and a sows ear.
When Hirsty arrived its what he said before hand that got under the collar of the fans, but that soon changed make no mistake.

Please don't confuse abuse with reality, that is dangerous territory.
He himself will have to provide the proof he can make the grade, if he continues to miss the eight yard target as often as he presently does, he's on his way. We no longer are looking to stay up, new owners, new targets, top notch finishers, that's the order of the day, he does not have those qualities, but he's had plenty of chances to put that right, and will get plenty more. The thought of spending 4 mil on two midfield wizards to provide chance after chance for him is frankly hilarious. Any striker worth his salt at his age has been prolific. This is not Scotland you don't have all day, in acres of space. I would however be the first to eat my words if he goes on a run, don't forget this if he can't do it for us, he is preventing the team moving forward, one extra goal per game in this league is the difference between mid table and promotion. That's not abusing people that's dealing with reality.

Agree3 Disagree6

13 Feb 2015 14:39:51
I always try to be positive and don't abuse players. Well not our own.
My comments about May are painful to make, but IMO he simply isn't good enough and Iv watched him play enough this season to pass that judgment.
I still thinks it's a lack of ability to make the correct decission quickly, as his passing, runs off the ball and finishing just don't cut it at this level.

Agree2 Disagree7

15 Feb 2015 12:20:16
This is one of those times where I think we will have to agree to disagree. Different people see things in different ways and I see a player with some potential who has massively lost his confidence but you see it differently and that's human nature. If it was my choice I would pull him out of the team and give some of our other strikers a chance and then get him a loan to a lower league club for a month or so to try and get him his confidence and goal touch back. His goal record I mentioned above doesn't just disappear overnight, and the Scottish leagues are not as terrible as some people say, the way some people talk not just on this site but others too you would think my local sunday league team would stuff Scottish clubs when in fact their lower leagues are very competitive.

Good start to the day, I just switched on the deadline day news and saw we had signed two players then realised one of the deals was Kelhar resigning on a short term deal. I've heard two possibly three more signings today, with one of those being a loan deal till the end of the season. Vermijl looks like he is one of these players but don't have any names or positions for other targets. Having said that I have heard we will definitely now not get Jamie Paterson in this window because of the change of manager. Freedman wants to evaluate his options before letting players leave.

I wonder if SG will still be at the helm next season. With so much money potentially available could they be looking for a top top manager to become available, nobody is going to invest £30m for fun. While I think SG has done brilliantly with what he has had at his disposal I think our new owners may want a speedy return on their investment, and as has been seen all season we are not going to get to top six unless we are more of a force going forward and currently we concentrate on Defence

I've said it for ages now and even on here, SG is carp at getting good strikers in. We know for a fact that this Bus geezer will be no good just like Keane and May etc. I also see that SG's said that if we can't get any players in by the time the window shuts then hopefully he'll be able to get somebody in next week when the loan window opens. That says to me that loanees are still going to be the norm at Hillsborough even under the new ownership. I remember the good days and it makes me very sad to see what's going on at this once great club.

Agree1 Disagree13

02 Feb 2015 14:28:25

hi would love to hear what the disagree with guy disagrees with ??? is it the good news that mm has done us proud ? is it that new blood can breathe new life into the team - is it that we shouldn't judge them too quickly - is it that they shouldn't have bought swfc - or is it that you don't think MM and SG will point them in the right direction would really love to hear and try to understand just what you are disagreeing to ??? pleases explain and put a name to your words or are you a blunt or a weed -no bottle eh - that's ok no name - no right to disagree unless you are prepared to support your comments but that's only my opinion and I have to respect yours. So please respect mine and tell us all what you disagree with

Also glad to see MM stay with us.
He is a legend in my heart and I dread to think where we would be without him now.

I think its good MM is staying on too, too many takeovers they just get rid of the whole previous board and then plow on in there own direction and this is where some takeovers go wrong. MM has been around football a lot of his career so is a good advisor for the new guys to help point them in the right direction as they haven't run a football club before. I think it shows promise from them to ask for advice rather than just plowing on themselves.

agree with 2 above posts - sad to see how many don't agree - must be blunts or weeds or really sad people I cannot believe they are owls supporters if you are, please please go to S2 we don't need you or your shocking sense of humour UP the ledgend MM up SG and UTO

MM was responsible for employing Dave Jones. He's also responsible for keeping him as manager for 6 months too long simply to justify his appointment. These decisions by MM set us back so much and destroyed the good work that Megson did to get us promoted.

McCabe played for Birmingham u21's and they're looking at him on trial. seems a shame, seen glimpses that he can play. Obv' SG sees him every day, but would be happier to see us looking to bring someone in rather than out or maybe this let's us bring someone in?

Another one doing the rounds is the striker Keane coming on loan. Yet another crap forward. Stuart Grays a decent manager but his choice of strikers is very questionable. He's not brought in a decent one yet since he's been in charge.

21 Jan 2015 08:29:10
Excluding Whickham and Fryatt obviously

21 Jan 2015 15:14:19
Whickham and Fryatt were originally Dave Jones signings. Like I said Owl1950, Stuart Gray is crap at picking strikers.

Agree5 Disagree8

22 Jan 2015 17:49:23
Looks like you were right strad. Hopefully he proves everyone wrong because we already have strikers who aren't finding the net. I really do think May has been unlucky though.

23 Jan 2015 22:55:52
Laughable a player that has been on man utd books since the age of ten and signed a 3year deal last year is described as carp, get a grip! If you want carp look at nuhiu!

Well just look at Keanes goals per game ratio since going professional. Absolutely diabolical to say the least. Plenty more better and proven strikers we could have moved for.

Agree5 Disagree1

26 Jan 2015 15:03:33
Agreed it's a punt but plenty of options? I don't think so.
We are limited to loans and players who are better than our existing team just don't want to come to Hillsborough.

Has anyone heard anything else about this new takeover other than what's in the star

Believable9 Unbelievable4

Yeah heard he's in talks with some Thai group about 30 million according to sly sports

Let's hope it all works out this time for all concerned and not to much disruption to the team

Agree9 Disagree3

Been rumoured for a month or so on one web site a poster mentioned it was a done deal 3 weeks ago.
Few informed people have said something's happening and Thai group were reportedly shown around training ground last week.
Chap who was involved/put together in Reading takeover deal is reportedly involved and one of consortium is related to Reading owner.
Heard other gossip but above comments were made before media story broke and believe were made in good faith rather than by a fantasist.
Nothing in Thai media
Think MM will say nothing until deal is over the line or is non starter after last years fiasco.
Hope this answers your question.

Agree8 Disagree5

07 Jan 2015 17:28:20
A bloke at the City game the other day said it was a consortium of Thai blokes that are in the leasure industry. Apparently they've looked around Hillsborough and the training ground already. He also said that last year they were on the verge of buying Bristol City and before this season started were looking in to the purchase of Walsall.

07 Jan 2015 19:56:23
Bristol City, Walsall ? Doesn't sound like a gang of high rollers.

Agree8 Disagree1

Wonder if it will have a negative or positive effect on transfer activity this window

Agree3 Disagree2

09 Jan 2015 15:26:00
No negative impact on transfer policy as we currently have nothing to spend anyway.
Just heard final discussions planned for next week, we will know then if on or off.

Clearly you can't put all investors in the same pot at this stage but I'd be a little nervous at Far Eastern investment after what I've seen at Birmingham and Cardiff.

Then you have good ones like at Leicester

Heard gray is a goner if we don't beat blackpool

Believable4 Unbelievable19

Gray is a fantastic manage and we would be in a worse state without him.
Have to say though that Westwood is without a doubt the best GK I have ever had the pleasure of watching.

Agree15 Disagree4

Westwood is the reason we have kept so many clean sheets, the back four are average, Westwood is 5 Star

Agree12 Disagree5

Agree with LMN above. We're half way up the league because of Gray which is a far better position than we were at this stage last year. With a bit of investment we could push on from here and spend time on the fringes of the play offs this year with a push for promotion next term. Everyone knows we need a striker, but we need to buy a decent one not loan one. Otherwise we'll be in the same position next year. Saying the same as this. Confident we'll finish at least mid table. UTO

Agree9 Disagree1

I see that we are unlikely to buy and any loans will be second or third week which means AG will miss out again. I agree we will finish around the middle of the table and without a struggle, which given our circumstances we should be satisfied ?

Agree3 Disagree3

30 Dec 2014 09:02:15
I'd be delighted at that, that's real sustainable progress. The fact we have won two in 14 (I think) doesn't matter. The table doesn't lie - we have moved forward considerably).

I'd rather we buy a striker, but if that's not an option I would much rather we loan than do nothing.

Apologies for the senior moment obviously meant SG, unless we get over a million for Westwood when somebody comes knocking

Agree1 Disagree5

30 Dec 2014 14:56:48
Let's just hope we can get £3million for Westwood from Liverpool. We've got a good number two to fill the gap left by Westwoods departure and maybe £750k of the money could be offered for Doyle from Chesterfield.

31 Dec 2014 08:16:54
Great result last night, surprised he dropped May though. SG is a great coach if we could just get some sort of home form

Agree7 Disagree1

31 Dec 2014 13:49:48
Surprised he dropped May? Why's that then? He doesn't score goals mate which at the end of the day is the reason we bought him. His work rate is fantastic but when it comes to scoring goals I'm afraid he's just not good enough at the moment. Yes he scored goals in Scotland but he's now in the English championship where he's up against better defenders, better goalkeepers and better teams. I've no doubt he will improve in front of goal over time as the potential is obviously there and hopefully he'll still be in a Wednesday shirt when that time comes.

Agree9 Disagree3

Neither does anybody else so by your logic he would be playing who up front

Agree9 Disagree1

01 Jan 2015 10:55:28
Strad is spot on

Plus he can't get away from defenders, and I have never seen a striker scuff so many shots. By that I mean a good clean solid shot at pace, with accuracy.

Agree7 Disagree1

I am still not sure whether its a confidence or competence issue with SM.
Last time everybody's patience ran out with him, he scored two against Wigan.

Agree2 Disagree1

04 Jan 2015 14:48:51
Is this the best team and bench have we have ? Will it be good enough to get a result

Thought you meant that he had become a striker.
So had been Googling and was about to Derek on your fire, lol.

I recon we won't get a quality striker in before busy Xmas period as all the prem clubs will be looking at there own situation before they let anyone go unless they are totally surplus to requirements? UTO

Thats generally us as a team we always make our selfs feel better by saying at all times of the year prem teams look to assess there own situations! uto xxx

25 Nov 2014 19:29:39
Or we will only bring in players that will improve the team. Taylor Fletcher (no goals) Hallam Hope (no goals) Stevie May (3 goals). The list goes on.

Agree2 Disagree3

26 Nov 2014 11:45:41
See we have been linked with Toon defender, we are Ok ish!! At the back we need people at the other end

Agree2 Disagree1

Strad give the lad May a chance, he has come from Scottish football which we all know is not as good a quality as our league. He has had a couple of niggly injuries and also the team as a whole haven't been playing to there best so the service to him (and the other forwards) has been incredibly patchy. I don't think Costa or Aguero would score in this team at the moment because of the service to the forwards. We need to get a run of wins together even if they are scrappy and then the confidence in the team will return.

Agree10 Disagree4

27 Nov 2014 11:00:07
Hi Shef 13

We are getting the ball in the box enough its the choice of what happens next that is the problem.
Every one is trying to get on the score sheet from whatever position
Because the forwards have not scored they are trying everything individually instead of sorting out the right move in and around area.
The 4 on 2 was a fine example against Huddersfield. May is not lightning fast, and 5ft 10 that's half the problem with him.

Agree4 Disagree8

27 Nov 2014 17:50:12
That's exactly right. In no way am I saying Stevie May hasn't got the potential to go on to score goals but at this moment in time the gulf between the Scottish Prem and this one is huge and I think it's clear in Mays performances and goals ratio. Yes he's a trier and yes he works his socks off but stats don't lie. He was brought here to score goals as were the other forwards and it's either not worked or isn't working. Yet!!

Agree2 Disagree2

27 Nov 2014 18:34:10
Is that another loan window closed having missed out on any sort of options. Looks like Lavery will have to be our goal scorer in chief

Agree3 Disagree2

Can't believe I am saying this, but I actually agree with Strad. The gulf is huge.
To be fair to Mat though, his effort that hit the crossbar, the line and then the post was as unlucky as it gets.
I'm looking forward to the Wigan match and its a good chance to perform well, bag three points and get some confidence back.
Although that statement could be the kiss of death.

Agree2 Disagree2

May, not Mat. ^

Agree3 Disagree19

I don't get how people can disagree with certain messages, like may not mat? and btw i expect people to act silly and dissagree with my post! uto xxx

Yes, it is quite strange uto xxx.
Will always get the odd muppet though.

Is there anyone who thinks that young Manny is worth a shot from the bench

Agree6 Disagree0

I 100% agree youg manny does deserve a chance especially after the debacle of last Saturday especially Nuhiu. May needs some help. We signed more players this year for the development squad than the first team so we have to ask why with none of them getting a chance or not making the grade which we must look at the coaches

Agree2 Disagree1

02 Jan 2015 17:49:44
Not saying we would have got him but wouldn't it be nice to think we had gone for Darren Bent?
We have the worst attack in the division yet are still in touching distance of the play offs.
No brainer if you ask me.
