    Lawrence hasn't been fantastic, but not anywhere near as bad as fans make him out to be.
    Next season will be huge for him, perhaps a different manager will see a more confident, creative player that people saw at Ipswich.

    Biggest mistakes have been backing managers too readily - especially Clement - and not managing SR correctly.
    The iPro deal wasn't too clever either.
    That said, the money we receive off the pitch is better than ever, RamsTV, investment in the academy and Pride Park... For me, the positives outweigh the negatives. So far.

    Can't see Simmo coming back,he's into a really good thing with England and he was shunted out unceremoniously when Mel came in....
    He also saw what happened to Mac 1&2
    I would prefer someone with zero derby baggage to come in and look at the job with clear and open eyes.
    Let them make their own reputation here as a manager,unsullied by past reputations and allegiances as a player.

    My feelings exactly. I feel a fool for buying into his ********.
    When you now reflect and look at his full tenure he's actually done an average job at best.
    **** football, failed to reduce the size of the squad, increased the average age of the squad significantly, sold our 2 best players (and loaned another 2 out), courted the Stoke job in Jan to land himself a bumper pay rise, overseen 4 wins in our final league 16 games and within a week of tumbling out of the play offs the treacherous rat walks out for the Stoke job after all.
    **** him.

    DET have done a small piece about Simmo - he's out with the u19s preparing for their Euros.

    Easy link for a paper to make. I would hope that if Rowett did go to Stoke that Mel would tell him to **** right off out of principle if any approach for Carson was made.

    I think this development would be more tolerable if we'd have ended the season with a whimper, with the fans turning against GR. Or if it was a premier league team.
    As it was, we were 45 minutes from Wembley (whether we deserved it or not) and I'd hazard a guess at saying most people thought job well done, tweaks here and there and we'd be ready to give it another crack next season. Especially when combined with a new contract a little over 4 months ago, and his comments regarding said contract. Surely he must have known about the budget limitations on the new contract? If not, then Mel deserves some flak for that.

    I don't know how you lot dare. It's common knowledge among football aficionados that Wednesday invented every single football chant ever.
    1939 - The Wednesday fans are serenading their team with a little ditty they liked to call "You'll Never Walk Alone". A young pair of scallywags by the names Rodgers and Hammerstein are sat in the away end furiously scribbling in their notebooks. 6 years later, the boche have finally been bashed when low and behold, the well known Wednesday anthem turns up in the hit musical Carousel. Coincidence? I think not.
    1960 - The Wednesdayites turn their backs to the pitch and link arms before bouncing raucously causing much mirth and merriment, but what's this? A few shifty foreign types, Poles from Poznań, are visiting the home of football chants and they like what they see. They went back to the continent, renamed the Wednesday invention to a "Grecque" in order to obfuscate it's true origin and claimed it as their own. The shameless thieves!
    1973 - Once again the unmatched lyricists of Hillsborough have outdone themselves, "You fill up my senses....." The opening lines of their magnum opus drift across the kop, but who's this long haired American hippy taking notes? You guessed it, noted thief and charlatan John Denver steals the tune and turns it into the number one hit "Annie's Song". The Wednesday fans are so disgusted by people once again taking advantage of their unmatched creativity that they vow to never sing the song again and allow the actual Sheffield team based in the city center to adopt it as their own.
    These are just a few examples, but if you do your research you will find that any chant or action performed inside a football stadium was done first by Sheffield Wednesday.

    I always feel positive about the club. It's my club.
    It's like being with my wife. She may not look like that bird out of Deadpool, but she's special to me.😀

    The first time he's backed a manager and given him enough time to sort things out, and he gets shafted at the 2nd opportunity that comes Gary's way, the 1st he used to whack his pay and contract length up. 
    He may have bought it on himself I hear you cry, when he sacked Mac2 to make way for Rowett, but it's still a shitty way to be treated by someone you've put so much trust in.
    I swear Rowett could crawl under a snakes belly while wearing a top hat, sneaky little fooker.
    Mel's made plenty of mistakes so far, but Rowett has sunk to new levels in taking the piss.

    What many seem to forget is that prior to Mel we barely even challenged the top half of the table for 6 years.
    Now we moan about finishing 8th, 5th, 9th & 6th in the last 4 years.
    The club is debt-free and has first class facilities.
    Yes he's made some bad decisions (costing HIMSELF money, not the club) but overall we should be thankful to Mel in my opinion.
