Ross Barkley coming bk on loan fact

Believable9 Unbelievable11

Thats a strange fact - given that Moyes has said only today in his interview that he would like him to stay and grow at Everton.
He is going to wait and see, he may still have to let him go out on loan but he'll decide later in the month?

Perhaps it might not be a fact after all, not yet anyway.

Agree10 Disagree1

Milan took the glory for changing manager now whats he going to do, spent no money waste of space

Agree1 Disagree4

Chris Maguire wants more starting opportunities or a move away

Believable21 Unbelievable0

Who would blame the kid.

Agree21 Disagree1

He would do a good job for us if he was given a chance ?

Agree18 Disagree4

Maguire is rubbish!!! what do you people see in him

Agree3 Disagree18

We see nothing in him......As we have seen nothing of him...We just don't write him off without seeing him play

Agree15 Disagree0

Maguire only player on saturday that looked like he gave a s**t. Chased players down and actually tried to beat players nobody else did !!!!

Agree18 Disagree2

Maguire has to be given the chance, I fought dj dropped him cause he had one bad game against Oldham in the league cup, but how many bad games did bothroyd have and still played him, also how many bad games has Martin Taylor had and still played, ridiculous wouldn't blame maguire for wanting to move on, I hope he gets a run tho

Agree11 Disagree2

Madine is going to Swindon and Chris lines to brentford both on loan

Believable3 Unbelievable20

Pig alert!

Agree10 Disagree1

Wouldnt miss either both league 1 players

Agree9 Disagree8

Dont talk wet u clown

Agree7 Disagree3

Your either on drugs or need to be!

Agree6 Disagree2

Neither are really featuring, so why are some people making out is dogger//...I mean, it might be, but both are realistic.

Agree1 Disagree1

Both confirmed as much on their twitter accounts. I like a few others don't really think they are championship players either and wouldn't be missed too much

Agree2 Disagree0

Madine is not good enough hes a league 1 player at best .Really hope this is true that he is getting moved out .

Agree11 Disagree3

This is bulls**t its just banter between Madine lines and palmer on twitter

Agree3 Disagree0

To the poster calling me a clown the 2 of them were good last season in league 1 dont cry but they cant cut this level end of grow up and realise this

Agree8 Disagree2

Agreed Madine ain't good enough.

Agree9 Disagree2

There is some rubbish posted on here and I wonder at times which planet some of the posters live on. Those that say that Madine is rubbish and a league 1 player at best are talking rubbish. Madine is 22 years old and has never played at this level before; in fact he has hardly played at this level this season. He is still very inexperienced and is learning his trade; he has been employed as a lone striker most of this season which is a very hard role to fulfil just look at Mamady Sidibe he is 34 and with his experience is struggling in that role. Most centre forwards are at their peak in their mid twenties to early thirties Madine has time on his side to learn, O'Grady, Sidibe and Bothroyd will not improve, if Madine is helped he can improve and fulfil his potential. Look at a couple of the other young centre forwards we had, the experts in the stands told us they were not good enough and were league 1 players at best, Richard Cresswell played for us and I remember fans saying he wasn't good enough, but he went on to score a lot of goals, many of them against us. Grant Holt was another that fans booed and said he was rubbish and not good enough, he left us in 2004 aged 22, now look at him. Madine works hard gets into good positions, that O'Grady, Bothroyd and Sidibe don't, he gets back to defend and puts some very good passes together and with more confidence and a continue run in the team will score goals and given time he will be an asset to us. So get off his back.

Agree10 Disagree6

Dont know bout what anyone else thinks but i still dont think we've seen the best of madine yet, just needs games to get used to the championship. He's a good young player, we want to keep him and he said he wants to stay here for ages .

Agree7 Disagree2

Don't think any body is on his back, it's only an Internet page, for discussing the team.

Agree0 Disagree0

Lets not forget Danny Graham too and he is smashing them in for fun in the Prem. Oh and the Cantona saga and Kovovacic too. wednesday are awful at judging potential.

Agree3 Disagree0

Madine & Rodri will probably be added to the list as well .
But its not wednesday thats - - awful at judging potential - - its who the manager was at the time. And we've had some crackers over the years.
But for me DJ has moved way out in front in No1 spot, I just cant make any sense of 99% of anything hes done since start of season

Agree3 Disagree1

I personally never understood why he didnt let the team who played so well together last season have a go at the championship.

DJ let Rob Jones go and he was a rock for us last season and surprise we now have issues at the back. Madine is a very good player and anyone that has seen him live can see that he has a good eye for goal and a clinical touch. DJ has set him back by not giving him enough games and now his confidence is lacking.

Agree2 Disagree1

Great news lita has signed

Agree0 Disagree1

Dave Jones has been told he has got to take 3 points from hull to retain his job.

Believable7 Unbelievable16

And how would you know that, don't kid ya self

Agree11 Disagree4

If MMs made his mind up which way hes going, which he will have by now, DJ wouldn't save his job if he got 6pts off Hull.
Just ask Gary Megson, derby win didn't help him.

Agree12 Disagree2

I love it how fans say dj is going on this day and that day and whith in so many hours if there is no solid proff of this then why put it on ff gets fans mad when people put utter garbage on here !!

Agree3 Disagree3

Like this would be made public and Mm wouldn't give a ultimatum he would just pull the trigger like he has done in the past

Agree4 Disagree0

Im sorry but call yourselves wednesday fans. If you are an actual wednesday fan you would get behind the team and DJ. And for the last time, if he was to get sack, he would have a got it before the start of january.

Agree9 Disagree1

This is a blunt (mind the gap ) wind up dont fall for it

Agree0 Disagree0

Dave Jones out

Agree5 Disagree5

I see agent Jones is doing a good job !

Agree3 Disagree2

Not as good as danny boy swfc tattoed on his arm stick to your own club blade boy

Agree3 Disagree3

I bet he regretted that the way Wednesday treated him

Agree1 Disagree0

Heard from someone working at the club that Michael Johnson from Man City may be arriving in January, also not sure if theres any truth in the Leigh Griffiths rumour but I think he would be a great signing from Wolves !

Believable10 Unbelievable2

Johnson is a story in his own right, hell of a gamble prob not worth taking.
If hes realised what hes about to lose and matured maybe - but?

Agree3 Disagree2

Not too sure about that griffiths, he's a bit of a bell

Agree4 Disagree3

Does the person who works at the club not realise Ireland left City a couple of years ago?

Agree2 Disagree6

Did anybody mention Ireland?

Agree10 Disagree1

I was trying to find where ireland was mentioned lol xxx

Agree3 Disagree1

I posted that, hands up I am a bell. Apologies OP.....Brain fart.

Agree6 Disagree1

He said Michael Johnson who was in the city first team not to long ago

Agree3 Disagree0

Not too long ago? Johnson aint been in the city first team for years. as an 18/19 year old he was rated one of the best prospects and possible future england captain, but let it all go to his had, and became fat and lazy, and injury prone. Wouldn't take the risk to be honest

Agree4 Disagree2

Leic took a punt on him couple years ago n they got 6-7 games out of him, none memorable.

Agree2 Disagree0

07 Jan 2013 15:25:08
Here's a fact for once. No signings will be sanctioned until MM returns from business trip to Mexico. MM hasn't decided whether to stick with DJ and therefore won't let him spend money on transfers or wages until he talks with the current manager. Expect news on the managers future after next weekend followed by a change of manager or a budget for signings in this window.

Believable6 Unbelievable5

How do you know all this you been talking 2 mm on the beach

Agree4 Disagree0

Fiction not fact

Agree3 Disagree3

Got told same thing on Saturday at the match by a club employee

Agree3 Disagree2

Karl Robinson to be Wednesdays next manager

Believable2 Unbelievable19

Hope not.

Agree11 Disagree2

I'd shoot myself if this happened

Agree9 Disagree1

I would be very happy, brilliant manager with so much passion

Agree5 Disagree8

He was being very complimentary about the club on saturday. I for one thought that might be significant. JR

Agree8 Disagree2

He doesn't even like Wednesday!

Agree5 Disagree5

Last year he hated wednesday; now he seems to have changed his mind. Just wondered why. JR

Agree4 Disagree2

Spoke to Nigel Jemson recently and he said, The only reason that Karl Robinson is holding out on making firm bids for Prutton and Weaver is because he knows that if or when offered the Wednesday job he'll have those players anyway.

Agree3 Disagree2

07 Jan 2013 18:12:13
Cos there a team full of our rejects

Agree4 Disagree1

Totally think Karl Robinson wants the Owls job! Also strongly believe DJ has to go for future of Owls! He lacks passion for SWFC & always says YOU INSTEAD OF WE which I find annoying!

Agree2 Disagree0

I agree with you about the "you instead of we/us" , I first noticed it early in season and now it absolutely drives me crazy every time he says it .
Not sure I'd rejoice if Robinson got the job, but equally when you look back hes done a good job at MKD, and I get the impression hes strong enough to cope here at S6, and you have to be thats why not many have been successful.

Agree2 Disagree0

If KR gets the job ill be over the moon, I get the feeling he wants the job, very passionate manager and knows what he's on about, the football that he's installed MKD to play is excellent, he may do that with us

Agree2 Disagree1

Double deal this week. Mk Dons want Prutton & Weaver

Believable2 Unbelievable7

Weres your evidence of this ?

Agree2 Disagree2

Did you go saturday caus i cant see why mk would want prutton theve already got better midfield players ie potter as for weaver isnt he still injured

Agree5 Disagree2

DJ won't let Prutton go. But Weaver needs a new club tbh

Agree5 Disagree3

Why don't we sign Stephen gleeson? I think he's a fantastic midfielder, I know you may think I'm stupid but Darren potter has been excellent for mk dons

Agree8 Disagree4

You right I do!

Agree5 Disagree1

I'd have prutton over potter a thousand times

Agree7 Disagree7

But I'd have gleeson over any of our midfielders

Agree7 Disagree0

Potter made prutton look like an a**e the other day

Agree6 Disagree2

And potter was rubbish when he was with us, just part of being a wednesday player we strangle the talent out of everyone we sign

Agree1 Disagree0

Harry was decent and he proved it against us, also remember him scoring a reyt goal against the scuml. But, I remember many fans booing him. Nuff said . FACT.

Agree1 Disagree1

07 Jan 2013 08:40:03
There will be no Dave Jones signings this week as Milan and Paul Aldridge are considering Dave Jone's future with the club.

Believable11 Unbelievable9

I think we should just rule out major signings for January because Dave Jones' job is in tatters and I don't think that MM will want to spent money if DJ isn't at the club in 1/2 weeks time, I think it will be loan signings and just selling players and as much as I like DJ I think after Tuesday's performance he should just resign. The only signing that will happen is the CB from Arsenal!

Agree5 Disagree7

Won't resign - he will want his compensation

Agree7 Disagree2

Dave Jones' job is safe as houses. If he was going to go hed have gone by now. We probably will take the plunge back down this year. But we will be back, and one day we will be strong and ready for the push back to the big time.

Yawnnn god i sound like a reet old fart.

Eff it Jones out !!

Agree8 Disagree7

Dave Jones has destroyed what Megson built up bad times again

Agree11 Disagree9

Dave jones is a prooven good manager, dont get why lots of wednesday fans want him out . Nower days no club back there manager properly. like it or not we've come back to the championship and were just not fully used to it yet. we need to back him and not be like chelsea and get a new manager 24/7

Agree10 Disagree7

So are u happy with returning to league because this is were this so called "prooven good manager" is taking us. His tactics are clueless he should have gone two months ago.

Agree8 Disagree6

What bewilders me is that honest, loyal Wednesday fans can look at our results, our position and, above all, our play and still hold to the view that we should stick by Jones. It is not just a question of playing in a better league, we wouldn't do so well in league1 with this side and these tactics.

Agree7 Disagree6

He's definately a goner, why else would MM say "you've got to sell to raise funds" when we're in the bottom 3?

Agree3 Disagree4

Have you guys been at the match on saturday vs mk dons, just i can not believe what i saw, if not bywater we could have lost that game easily. the way we passed the ball and players integrate with eachother was completely missing, no game plan and no urgency. i saw us against leicester and took friends with me, it was embarrasing! how long will that continue please mm we believe in you and trust you to do something!
i personally hope paulo dicanio will be our next manager ... he has the temper and the hunger to succeed and no player gives less than 100% for him, just see what he is doing at swindon !!! he was the exciting player for the owls in the past and will be the exciting manager too ... i do honestly believe that :-)

Agree18 Disagree4

I don't think you're going to get many on here agreeing with you.

Agree4 Disagree10

Dave Jones has got to go its as simple as that. Dave Jones OUT.

Agree13 Disagree4

We can't get relagated, we will lose money and I doubt we will be back for a long time, we have to stay up

Agree8 Disagree0

Well I have read the comment above about keeping and supporting our manager

It looks like Milan agrees

I was hoping the rumours on here were true that today he would be gone, but alas he is still here and still our Manager

I can't see any major signings and I can't see us improving under Dave Jones so looks like back to League 1 next season and financial restraints

So to the guy who says stick with Jones see where it takes us and remember seat prices are cheaper in League One

Agree1 Disagree0

Jones is his own worst enemy. Vain, patronising, smug and complacent. His interview on Radio Sheffield was like a silly little game, full of banal dodges to some pertinent questions. He gives the impression that supporters are too stupid to merit anything more than a few platitudes. Maybe he is an accomplished manager. But I've grown to dislike and distrust him. I want to know why his selections have been made, what has gone wrong with players he presumably brought to Hillsborough and what strategy he has for the remainder of the season.

Agree9 Disagree0

Yes, not a man to lead men. Mind you, perhaps we are wrong because Bothroyd says DJ is the best.!

Agree3 Disagree0

Although i think he should stay till the end of the season i have to say that every fan i know personally, wants him out.
Some fans will still be behind him but for me he's lost so much support i don't know if things can ever be right again.
I've not really known us have a manager that no one really wanted like this before.
Other managers have had bad results and left but most of them left with our best wishes.I don't think jones will.

Agree2 Disagree0

Paulo DiCanio will be our best choice for a new manager. He has the anger and hunger to motivate and push players to give 100% ..... Just look what he is achieving at Swindon season after season. No so long They beat the league 1 leader Tranmere 5-0 exciting team spirit and before you know it will be another automatic promotion ...... we need somebody like that at wednesday who has the passion and good connection with the owls in the past ....DO U AGREE FAITHFUL FANS

Agree10 Disagree3

I'm not sure.
I think we need someone with premier or championship experience.
Di Canio is still learning and i'm worried about his temperamant.
Maybe in the future but not to save us from the drop.

Agree1 Disagree4

PAULO DICANIO IS OUR BEST BET .... Some fans say they want manager with premiership/championship experience, we have one and we had some ..what did they do for our great club??
Paulo DiCanio has what it takes to succeed, you get no messing about with him, straight in the face and straight on the pitch to score and to achieve. Just look what he is doing at Swindon, they are the favourate now to win League 1 ... Magic but no magic just good football
Let us support eachothers and encourage MM to consider this exciting young talent Manager who had a link with the owls and the passion for the club

Agree2 Disagree0

07 Jan 2013 08:36:42
Leroy Lita will NOT be signing for us according to radio Sheffield

Believable9 Unbelievable4

Would you with DJ in charge ?

Agree6 Disagree4

No I wouldn't and think the current players don't want to play for him Dave Jones has got to go Its like the Alan Irvine nightmare all over again.

Agree10 Disagree6

Interesting if you take a straw pole of players and fans of all clubs who they would most not like to play for or manage their clun ad Gary Megson is far and away the winner. I have ever disliked guy but its true.

Agree3 Disagree0

I'd welcome him back in a flash, so would most West Brom fans who were around when he was there.

Agree3 Disagree2

Megson is the man to save us

Agree0 Disagree1
