Harry Grant signed first Professional Contract at SWFC. Ex-Swindon youth/Reserve player. I fully assume this will be a signing for the development squad. But hey-ho welcome to SWFC

If Dave Jones rates the lad, ah well in DJ we trust! UTO

Believable16 Unbelievable1

Agree6 Disagree0

Bid for Antonio turned down

Believable9 Unbelievable5

Sounds to me like Reading saying 'Come and get him' - if its just price then this will get done.

Agree6 Disagree3

Does anyone know how much was offered?

Agree4 Disagree3

It doesn't say how much we originally offered but they are saying we will get him provided we give the right money they want for him. Hopefully both teams will come to an agreement

Agree4 Disagree0

Can imagine around 650k

Agree3 Disagree3

It was regarding the 350k bid

Agree3 Disagree2

It will be our first bid 350,000 their on about

Agree2 Disagree2

Check out Reading's talk forums! I know its just transfer gossip and rumours but the feeling is that they think Antonio will permanently leave Reading and join us! Antonio wants games and stability and he will get that with us. Cmon MM get this deal wrapped up!

Agree2 Disagree1

That was my understanding (that's how I read it... regarding the previous bid of 350K)

Agree1 Disagree1

Yes agree with above that would be the first offer of 350K - on Reading's twitter on Wednesday said the move to us was imminent and indicated that it would be completed in Portugal - they are willing to sell for right price we want him and he wants to come - have faith it will get sorted as Milan said he is giving it 100% to making it happen

Agree2 Disagree0

It looks like it's the first bid. It suggests they are getting impatient and are signalling to other clubs that he is available.We need to get our skates on! On the plus side though confirms that he wants out and they'll sell. Come on MM and PA get this deal done.

Agree3 Disagree1

Let's hope it was the Reading flight out and the Owls flight back...

Agree4 Disagree0

I remember last season missing out on ALF and a few other primary targets, Megson was getting the blame for having his own valuation of a player and instructing the club not to pay over this amount. It seems to me that this is clearly Bull - Aldridge is pulling the financial strings, and this fiasco is turning into a real Joke, pay the money that they are asking, it will get more people through the gates, I think its the one signing that almost every wednesday fans wants to see! I think that he will easily make the step up, easily!

Agree2 Disagree1

Typical Wednesday always waiting until its too late and then blame someone else.. Nowt ever changes! {Ed046's Note - There is no rush!!

Agree2 Disagree4

Maybe there are better out there f that sort of money. Isn't it this kind of chucking money about that gave us 10 years of hell. Please trust mm dj etc

Agree4 Disagree1

Its just chucking money about when you are signing a player that you know nothing about, we know all about Antonio - and if you think that you can better than him for 750k then you are sadly deluded. In my opinion Antonio is a better player than Marshall was, and Marshall went for over 1.2m .... go figure

Agree2 Disagree0

Typical WEDNESDAY.You must be joking they have been more active early pre season than I can ever remember we have probably signed more players than any other club in the division,Ok Antonio would be a great signing if he can play at this level a lot of money for him to bomb.I dont think he will but we are still buying potential remember he wasnt deemed good enough for Reading in the Championship, I d think he will sign and be a good player for us but dont expect the same impact as last year, this season will be a year of learning and development for him and a few more we have signed that we have signed for free and fees not as much as Antonio will eventually cost.Trust the Management

Agree4 Disagree0

Im pretty sure that antoinio will be as brilliant in the championship, especially now his confidence has grown during his time playing in the wednesday shirt.

Agree5 Disagree0

Good friends with Darren Carters cousin, he says Darren has had a few meetings with Dave Jones, nothing on a deal as yet but maybe training in the next 2 weeks

Believable7 Unbelievable3

Could be true, I saw him at a petrol station near rother valley

Right... my mum heard that Karen from four doors down said to my auntie Sue that Dave from across the road from her's uncle has a cousin that has a friend that said that his nephew knew someone that had a boyfriend that played along side this lad at Greenhill that knew a bloke that had a sister and his sister's friend told her that her granddad had a nephew that overheard one guy telling another that he knew a guy that worked in a chippy that served the best cod in Yorkshire that said he saw somebody writing in a notepad, the note said that there was a man that had a younger brother that knew this girl that was having an affair with this other bloke's brother's girlfriend's cousin and the guy she was having an affair with said that it's common knowledge in Sheffield, including S2 that Wednesday are MASSIVE.

Believable19 Unbelievable5

Ok, I want that 20 seconds of my life back........I already know Wednesday are MASSIVE, without reading all that crap!

Owls supoosed to be interested in re-signing Richard Wood. source sheffield star. not for me . let him play in league 1 if he can get in coventrys side

Believable10 Unbelievable5

He is garbage - wanted out 2 years ago & couldn't wait to go , let him stew in div 1 along with the blunts

Agree10 Disagree1

Richard Wood's agent is Imre Varadi. Go figure.

Agree4 Disagree0

I reported way back in January that Wednesday wanted Richard wood back (on loan) so this doesn't surprise me at all
Ed is welcome to check this

Agree2 Disagree0

He didn't want us a couple of years ago so we dont want him now!

Agree6 Disagree0

Not for me either, he was alright, but scoring that own goal against the blades did it for me

Agree2 Disagree0

Dont want him, showed how much the club meant to him by the way he left. Especially as he made out he was going to sign new contract so we woldnt sell in close season just so he could pocket more from any deal

Agree4 Disagree1

It was the club owners that treated him badly they wanted him off the pay roll so offerd him rubbish contract plus stripping him of captian and replacing him with purse. Yeah id want out aswell!

Agree6 Disagree1

Don't rate him there's better out there.

Agree3 Disagree0

Just 2 minor points. If the offer was so bad why did he say in the summer he would sign only to decide(conveniently after the close of the transfer window) that it really wasn't acceptable after all. Secondly, they stripped him of the captaincy because he handed in a transfer request, I would say thats a pretty reasonable thing to do to be honest

Agree2 Disagree2

He didnt have much choice since the fall of ticket plus our debt at the time beevers to everton + wolves pulled out of deal meaning we had to force out woods and sell grant to sort books out. He was forced out. He made right decision.

Agree2 Disagree0

Looks like we might be back in for Richard Wood as Coventry are cutting their wage bill. Source - Sheffield Star

Believable7 Unbelievable3

Simply not good enough now...was a time

Agree7 Disagree3

Richard Woods agent has come out and rumoured him with a return to Wednesday!

1.He Left!
2.Only wants back in now we are going places
3.Average, Gardner, Llera both better!
4.Let him go nowhere at Coventry!

What would you lot reckon to a return? He was good once upon a time but, left us when times weren't so good! I personally think he betrayed Wendesday and don't want him back!

Believable9 Unbelievable2

No way. he handed in a transfer request and left us at a time when we really needed him. we also didn't receive his full market value because his contract was running down. we don't need him. we don't want him. good luck to you richard, i wish you the best, but we're heading in opposite directions now.

Agree5 Disagree2

I wouldnt take hime back he bailed out when the going got hard! which is the reason im happy we've sighne jj to another year contract! hes been with us through the good the bad and the ugly uto

Agree4 Disagree2

Footballer in: leaves club for more money shocker! wtf are you lot on? You'd do it. When Franny Jeffers was earning 10k a week, and you had Wood, on less than 5 it is no wonder he left. He was a quality player, there is no denying that. I'd have him back as a squad player.

Agree6 Disagree5

Completely agree with comment above, however I feel hes lost his way a bit and now isnt good enough, theres better player out there, and lots on free transfers

Agree1 Disagree1

What are you on?! Never want to see him a wednesday shirt again. Plus he simply is not good enough now. Theres plenty more better players out there than him

Agree0 Disagree0

Working with a Stoke lad this morning he's just showed me yesterdays paper where it very clearly states SWFc are in talks with Ricardo fuller now is that possible if so will the owls be able to afford him since he's been a premiership player .

Believable5 Unbelievable0

Hope so but think wages are going to be a problem!

Agree2 Disagree0

Really cant see fuller coming to wednesday, s*** hot playerand would suit wednesday's style of football i reckon, but you can tell hes a player who wouldnt take a cut in wages

Agree2 Disagree1

Long ball wont work in the Championship though

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree with comment above, which draws me to the conclusion he should go to wednesday as they play good football, on the floor unlike the blunts

Agree0 Disagree0
