Agree2 Disagree2

If dj gets job its an absolute joke! Mm aut to back a real manager (like gm) with some cash or sell up n f@@k off! Check dj's record, its a joke! Absolutly useless when it matters

Agree3 Disagree1

This is a shed load more than what merggo has achieved as a manager.

Agree3 Disagree2

For all those already bashing Dave Jones, whom would you like instead? Mourinho? Ferguson? Guardiola? Jones is a good manager for this level, better than others linked. He built a good team at Cardiff and was unlucky not to reach the prem. I can only think of Billy Davis who would be better, and I'd give him about a week before his relationship with MM broke down.

Agree4 Disagree2

I dont care who our manager is if they get us back to where we belong - surely what we need is togetherness and investment - give the guy a chance look what a change of manager has done for Sunderland !

Agree1 Disagree1

You mean look what Martin O'Neill has done for Sunderland - totally different argument !

At 5 20 pm this evening I was at hillsborough to pick up my wife who works for the club, this is not something I have been told bye her.a chauffeur driven car arrived and out stepped DENNIS WISE with a suited guy ????

Believable0 Unbelievable11

Yeh the monopoly man ha

Agree0 Disagree1

Another Loser ran away from Leeds United, he couldn't hack the pressure...

Agree3 Disagree0

Heard from a good source Billy Davis is the man to be unveiled tomorrow.

Agree1 Disagree5

Wise would be a superb appointment

Agree0 Disagree8

This is a Massive joke... I hope MM is going to pull a rabbit out of a hat because I can't see myself and my girls going to watch Dave Jones..I will be at Clive Bakers Funeral and wake at Hillsborough monday and I will be handing in this years season tickets and my renewal that has just come through if it is Jones..... We need a winner, not I nearly got Cardiff into the premier league.... {Ed001's Note - he got Wolves there, did well at Southampton too. Took Stockport up through the leagues, before a certain Mr Megson came in and destroyed all the good work he had done.}

Agree2 Disagree3

Megson got West Brom in to Prem. twice and performed the biggest Houdini act in Prem history with Bolton before taking them in to Europe.
Megson took over at Stockport when they were in severe financial distress , and with the backing of the board dismantled the side to raise funds to keep the club afloat, might be a more accurate description? {Ed001's Note - not true at all, Stockport were not in financial distress until Megson came in. His first step on taking over was offering lengthy contracts to players he had never even seen play, which he then didn't use and the club could not get rid of. That was the start of their downfall, but Megson was new to the management game at the time.}

Agree2 Disagree0

Boom slapped down

Agree2 Disagree0

Sorry ed! {Ed001's Note - no need to apologise, I just fail to understand why anyone would be upset with Jones, just be glad it is not Ince!}

Agree2 Disagree0

Totally agree Jones has managerial pedigree , Ince was a great player !!

Agree1 Disagree1

Sorry ed , but Megson took Stockport almost in to play-offs in his first season whilst rebuilding the squad. He left shortly after so don't see where he undid any of Jones good work? {Ed001's Note - he tore the youth system apart mate. That was what Jones had built the club's relative success on, as the money wasn't there to buy players. Instead Megson brought in players at a cost the club couldn't afford, while giving players already there long, expensive contracts. It was difficult to offload the players he wanted out, because of their long, expensive contracts and things began to go downhill there for the club.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Dave jones nearly got cardiff in prem play offs nerly every season ye must be s**t ur all same most wednesday fans y dont u have a bit ov faith for a change ad lv to get to champ playoffs every season

Agree1 Disagree3

Look at the plight of Portsmouth - could have been us if MM didn't step in. Might not agree but time to move on and get behind the team. People saying they are not going if Jones is appointed are probably the same clowns that phone praise or grumble on a Saturday, give an experts opinion of the game and then say they didn't go because Aunt Flo had a cold.

Agree5 Disagree1

Did MM save us? Blimey, I'm sure some people must say that in their sleep.

Agree3 Disagree0

Megson has just issued a statement through LMA saying how disappointed he is that he wasn't allowed to finish the job he started.
Thanking fans and staff and hoping that one day he gets the chance to work for the fans again.
Typical of the man - just a pity MM doesn't have the same class !!

Believable12 Unbelievable0

Milan out! sheffield wednesday dont need someone like him! surely someone else can buy our huge club and take us to where we want to be! megson going is a huge mistake , megson had wednesday in his blood! football has gone mad!

Agree7 Disagree6

WHY WHY WHY do you all think that MM would do something that would be counterproductive for Sheffield Wednesday (I am sure we all know that MM bought our penniless club to eventually sell and make a profit in doing this giving us a team we a could be proud of once more) SO yes Gary a true Owl as gone and yes he as done a good job with limited funds BUT we MUST trust MM he wants what we want even if it is for different reasons.

Agree12 Disagree4

Wake up and shut up! MILAN MANDARIC OUT

Agree6 Disagree5

How can anyone who knows anything about football not see that it IS totally counterproductive to sack Megson at this time ??
Nobody can change anything significantly in 13 games.
The best person to take this team forward was Megson, he had the respect of the players - remember last Sunday?
To bring a new manager in now is not "counter productive" , its suicidal .
Wait and see!

Agree2 Disagree0

MILAN OUT ?? Have you all got short memories (NO ONE WANTED TO BUY OUR CLUB for what 3 years SO HOW DO YOU PROPOSE WE MOVE FORWARD ) MM Saved our club even if it was for personal gain and WILL move this club forward because that's how he makes his millions

Agree7 Disagree2

01 Mar 2012 16:15:39
"We are trying very hard and hopefully we can announce the new manager in the next 24 hours" - Milan made this comment when he arived at Hillsborough @ 3.40pm this afternoon to the Hallam FM reporter outside the south stand - but he arived alone

Believable0 Unbelievable0

Might be Harry Redknapps dog rosie

Agree2 Disagree1

Shes got plenty of money. New chair er dog perhaps uto ftb

Ronnie Moore just seen in Sheffield Park Hotel meeting Paul Aldridge

Believable0 Unbelievable10

Who's paul aldridge

Agree2 Disagree0

Oh yeah, lets meet in a hotel where everyone can see us.

Agree3 Disagree0

Why would he sack a good manage and bring in someone who got sacked in league two as rotherham manager?

Mick mccarthy!!

Agree2 Disagree0

01 Mar 2012 15:44:32
Megson dismissal due to future investment reasons.

Can't go much further but it doesn't need much imagination to understand why.

Believable1 Unbelievable2

I've got a vivid imagination but can't make any sense of this one ..... give us a clue ??

Agree2 Disagree1

Bit broad, I can only imagine either MM has got plans at another club and/or someone's pledged large investment IF we go up, and MM or new invester doesn't think GM will get promotion.

Agree2 Disagree0

01 Mar 2012 14:56:31
MM has already had talks with a few managers one of them bieng Martin ling would not be a bad choice!

Believable1 Unbelievable13

Whos martin ling?

Agree5 Disagree0

Jones, Robbins, Ince and Blackwell are the four managers in the frame.

Agree1 Disagree5

No thanks to ling blackwell and ince ,
Mick mccarthy or Jones please!

Agree2 Disagree2

Dave jones favourite at 1/3,, macarthy 2nd at 6/4,, lee clarke is 10/3,,,, also mention in papers about paul ince

Believable3 Unbelievable3

Dave Jones another loser.... give us Mick his teams always beat us at Hillsborough.

Agree5 Disagree4

Must be a Barnsley Owl !!
McCarthy not the answer .

Agree5 Disagree1

Dont want mcarthy his football is so boring

Agree3 Disagree4

01 Mar 2012 08:49:27
I mentioned this last week its gunna be Kevin Blackwell Traitor Mandaric has been seen meeting him. I for oone would not go to another game if this fool was in charge!

Believable5 Unbelievable3

No thank you, we need a winner not a play off loser...

Agree7 Disagree0

In the end it is Wednesday that matters, now, next year and stretching into the future. I understand absolutely ,and share, the anger and despair of this moment but withdrawing support will not help the club and is not what Gary or his dad would wish.They are big men .

Agree1 Disagree1

The only way you can make a point to ppl like Mandaric is by a boycott i for one will not go again this season if he appoint some muppet like Jones Ince Or Blackwell!

Agree1 Disagree3

Getting twitchy about the Mcgahay deal now, needs to go through if MH on his way

Agree0 Disagree0
