    Starting 11s

    God knows what formation we'll set up with, if we are still going with the Bruce set up I think it would be a 3-5-2, Bullen seems to prefer a 4-3-3 though. Westwood Palmer Lees Borner Obubajo Bannan Hutchinson Lee Reach Fletcher Harris Subs- Dawson, Iorfa, Thorniley, Pelupessy, Joao...

    African Cup Of Nations

    Anyone been watching this? Been quite a few upsets and scares already. Hosts Egypt only won 1-0 against Zimbabwe on opening night, Uganda beat DR Congo 2-0 yesterday, Nigeria scraped past tournament newbies Burundi by the skin of their teeth, and Madagascar held Guinea to a 2-2 draw last night...

    Pre season 2019/20

    Any of you got any interesting friendlies lined up over the coming weeks? So far we have games in England against Stocksbridge Park Steels, Lincoln City, and Northampton Town. 10 days in Portugal from 1st July, rumoured to be playing Shrewsbury but nothing confirmed as of yet. Then from...

    Sheffield Wednesday V Rotherham United

    Really can't be bothered to go, Blackburn last week was horrendous and this week we have no Bannan or Forestieri. The Millers always turn up for the game at Hillsborough, even when we were good we only just scraped past them in the 98th minute, win today and we'll have a nice cushion on the...

    Sheffield Wednesday V Bolton Wanderers

    Biggest game of the season so far for us, win and it could put us 6 points clear of the bottom 3, another loss and we are in the shit. Bolton are also in bad form and plummeting down the table, so we won't have a better chance to get back on track really, Bolton are a big physical side so we...

    Wednesday V Frank Lampard's Derby County

    I've enjoyed these two weeks without club football, dreading it coming back to be honest. Hopefully we can build on our 0-0 victory and first clean sheet of the season at the lane last time out, tough ask against a Derby side who are hitting form. Hopefully Derby have the same kind of day they...

    Birmingham City V Sheffield Wednesday

    I'm going tomorrow so I fully expect a loss, our defence can't defend and our forward players are all injured or out of form in Joao's case. Birmingham are in unreal form and are now in the play off picture, even earlier in the season they looked good just couldn't take their chances. We need a...

    Queens Park Rangers V Sheffield Wednesday

    Midweek trip to London tomorrow, after Friday's shit show at the back I'm hoping lessons have been learnt and we wont be gifting goals to the opposition like we seem to do in every game. QPR had a terrible start but a few signings coming in at the end of August has resulted in an upturn in...

    Sheffield Wednesday V Middlesbrough

    Live on Sky tonight, two teams in the top 6 and in good form. We're missing Forestieri which is a blow against these as in a tight game he can pull out a bit of magic, still we've got enough to give them a game. Think our inability to keep a clean sheet and Boro's solid defence will make this a...

    Sheffield Wednesday V West Bromwich Albion

    Tough game for us tonight, Albion are probably the strongest team in the league and we are missing Bannan through suspension, definitely going to need Forestieri to fill the void tonight or creativity is going to be non existent. A win and we are in the top 6, very tight at the moment but...

    Nottingham Forest V Sheffield Wednesday

    We go into this 4 unbeaten and with a bit of momentum behind us after a good comeback against Stoke on Saturday, Forest have been decent but have struggled to turn their draws into wins. We cannot keep a clean sheet at the moment so Forest will get opportunities, we will however create chances...

    Sheffield Wednesday V Stoke City

    After 3 straight wins the international break probably came at the wrong time for us, however it's given us chance to get some players rested and get Hooper closer to a first team return, the additions of Onomah and Hector before the end of the window have also given us a lift and more...

    Reading V Sheffield Wednesday

    Back to League football, we've won our last 2 at home but are yet to pick up a point on the road. Reading have a horrendous Saturday home record over the last 2 years and are currently sat in the bottom 3 without a win, no doubt we'll help improve that statistic. None of the players who came in...

    Sheffield Wednesday V Ipswich Town

    Lifelong Wednesday supporter Paul Hurst gets his dream of managing at Hillsborough tomorrow, and will no doubt be giving envious looks across to Jos Luhukay. Ipswich still yet to get their first win of the season, and went out in the cup to League Two opposition, while we got off the mark in...

    Sheffield Wednesday V Millwall

    Another midweek game against Millwall, can't remember the last time we played them on a Saturday, must be a good 5 or so years since. Important game for us, on paper it's a more winnable game than Brentford but so were Wigan and Hull, we are desperate to get that first league win on the board to...

    Sheffield Wednesday V Hull City

    First home game of the season, a lot of negativity surrounding the club with the transfer embargo, the loss at Wigan opening day and the blown out of proportion fans forum, so we could really do with a win to lift the mood. Hull also started the season with a defeat last night and didn't look...

    Wigan Athletic V Sheffield Wednesday

    It's finally here, the start of a new league season in the Championship, and we start with a trip to newly promoted Wigan. It's not been an ideal summer for us, zero players incoming has meant we haven't addressed the glaring issues we've had within the squad for the previous 2 seasons, making...

    League Cup draw.

    We've drawn League One Sunderland away, be a good night out but I'd have hoped for an easier tie in the first round to be honest.

    Pre-season friendlies thread

    Luhukay has already confirmed the annual holiday camp to Portugal isn't happening this year, focusing on getting the players as fit as a fiddle at home, to try and put an end to the ridiculous injury crisis of last season. We've confirmed two friendlies away at League Two play off semi finalists...
