  1. Selling the Crown Jewels ..

    absolutely stupid post easily refuted .. Vydra is the one player we rely on NOW and unlike when Martin was top scorer we have no others scoring good numbers of goals (Martin 20 Bryson 16 or similiar numbers depending on which competitions included ) )
  2. Sheffield Wednesday F.C. v Derby County F.C.

    Perhaps he doesn't think Anya can run fast enough ?
  3. Good results for us today

    Did Bruce make 6 changes or summat ?
  4. What's more frustrating?

    For some it is far easier to blame fans than criticise a manager who makes 6 changes when it wasn't necessary
  5. Sheffield Wednesday F.C. v Derby County F.C.

    Not by me and I have posted about this before.I would hope for a mostly fixed team with a couple of unforced changes to suit opposition some times.. Not sure how people asking him to use the squad more are relevant to my point - they disagree with me , do you ? Its not like Rowett is choosing teams on the basis of what he reads on here. He's judged by performances and results that come from HIS decisions. Making 6 changes was a SHOCKING decision, but there are some on here who think it was fine to do this. Its as bad as Phil Brown keeping his Hull players on pitch over half time and just shows he's lost the plot.
  6. Sheffield Wednesday F.C. v Derby County F.C.

    Excellent post ( cut to save space) The longer it goes from the match, the worse the 6 changes seem. I've talked to mates who support Premiership teams ( so no axe to grind about us) and without exception they find it hard to understand.Having lost the game at Wednesday what does he do against Leeds, switch back? keep in the players who played badly? How could the team , with players who haven't played recently or haven't played together in recent games, be expected to do well. Rowett argued that all 6 he brought in were good players, but does he really think all our 1st team squad have the same skill and effectiveness? He tinkers with the team too much. On Nugent's play, perhaps is is demoralised with Jerome and Winnall picked in front of him in recent matches - just think how good he was against Milwall, not that long ago.

    People have to tell the truth as they see it and if that is critical so be it. They will still be there supporting the team , paying the money etc and they are entitled. Some of those being critical have not just said things after the last two matches, they have not been convinced in spite of our league position. Don't read forums if your happy clappy brain can't stand to hear negative things.
  8. Sheffield Wednesday F.C. v Derby County F.C.

    We should be having a more settled side at this stage, Changing 6 players, some of whom have not played for weeks and expecting things to gel immediately is unrealistic. The set up was defensive - Johnson does not bring the attacking flair needed for his position tonight. .

    Chickens coming home to roost. Rethink needed by some delusional fans.
  10. Sheffield Wednesday F.C. v Derby County F.C.

    6 changes ? Really? you're having a laugh
  11. Agree, holding the ball and retaining it can be as good defensively as headless chicken running. At least Nugent does get the ball to other players better than Jerome has done so far ( early days not critcising ) or Winnall did.
  12. Too many draws?

    I think you will find that some of the comments you complain about are not induced by the events of this weekend but have been consistent comments for months. Some managers say that it is the quality of the performance that counts, as a way of discounting a match lost. For us too often this season the performances have been unconvincing despite winning. Yesterday we played some very good stuff but for what proportion of the whole match?
  13. Too many draws?

    You missed out " the bottling has started "
  14. Too many draws?

    People criticised MacClaren unfairly for no plan B - where is our plan B now? Rowett made 2 substitutions yesterday and they had little effect - we looked no more likely to get another goal. Players were changed but that didn't alter the way we were set up in a positive way. Putting Nugent up front with Jerome would have put more pressure on their back 3 , who with Rowetts too cautious approach, were very comfortable most of the time. Rowett blames the team for not pressing forward enough - he's the coach and the responsibility is his if this is a recurrent problem. We are not playing as well as in December and all the draws since Christmas show a problem.
  15. Sam Winnall torn ACL, out for the season

    What an intelligent response.
