The problems at SWFC and in the wider game - some thoughts

When DC appointed Tony Pulis many fans, including me, were positive because it seemed that in response to our club being in a mess DC had decided to bring in a senior figure in the game to get a real hold of what needed to be done. Anyone who knows anything about TP knows that if he gets on well with a Chairman it’s fine but if he doesn’t then problems might arise. Did DC and Mr Paixao understand this...

Gavin Blackwell reflects on the Tony Pulis appointment

One factor of football that remains ever constant when the leaves drop off the trees in Autumn, and the arrival of wet weather and heavy pitches, is the traditional wave of manager departures. The middle week of November alone saw two Championship clubs lose faith and with it the main man being shown the door.

This is a decision that effects so many people in a football club. From the managers secretary right down the academy. I can recall in November 1997...

Thoughts on an eventful week so far at S6

When Garry Monk was appointed there was a fairly negative reaction from lots on fans on Twitter etc. This was reflected in the next paper WOTMT with plenty of captions addressing these points. During his reign that negativity followed him right up until the day of his departure. I always hoped he might come good, and on Boxing Day at 3pm, I thought he might be set fair, but the collapse at the Britannia Stadium haunted the rest of his...

What a difference a day made

Twenty-four little hours

Brought the sun and the flowers

Where they used to be rain

So goes the song made famous made by Dinah Washington. On Tuesday at 7pm we were definitely feeling under the rain after those terrible performances and results against Luton, Rovrum and Wycombe. It looked as if relegation was looming and the majority of fans had lost all confidence in GM after the recent results, on top of a dismal record. But we then...

In a miserable world we can at least change one failing leader but who would want to lead the party?

In common with probably a fair few other people I woke up very early this morning and couldn’t get back off. It’s the start of November, the country’s heading for another lock-down and Sheffield Wednesday are in another melt-down.

It’s already been a season like no other, watching the games on i-follow in empty stadiums with nothing but the bellowing of the backroom staff and the heartfelt groans of John Pearson for company (and yesterday a Radio Sheffield commentary that in...

An appreciation of two former players who helped make the author a Wednesdayite

These days all I can usefully write about Sheffield Wednesday are my own memories of 'the good old days' - I can reel off the names of the 1966 Cup Final Team like your rote learned times table from early school days, but name three of the buggers who wear the blue and white these days ? That's another matter.

Looking at photos of Gerry you pick up certain impressions; the ruggedness of his North East origins, his concentration on the...
