Nahki Wells to sign for £350,000 from Bradford on three and a half year deal

Believable6 Unbelievable9

Just watching thr game and I think it might take more than 350k to get nahki wells

Agree3 Disagree5

I doubt we would have got promoted if Chedward didn't get locked up, no offence cos I hate the Blunts.
It was premature, with a team that was designed for division one.
MM isn't going to put the amount of money that some of our fans expect into our club. But he did help us survive and without him we would probably be a Tesco's right now.
DJ is having a nightmare, but he is developing a youth structure for the future. He certainly does not have the resources. Also, he has tried all the players that people are calling for but it never got any better.
This season we have found a few gems in McCabe, Corry and Lee, however, they do need more experience. Hopefully, Helan too.
We have a large fan base and stadium but we have been a long way from being massive for many years, and Rome was not built in a day.
Rodri was Barca B which doesn't amount to much. Hemroyd and Mama needed match fitness at a lower standard than the premiership, therefore likewise.
I don't really understand why some fans are expecting the massive yesterday.
Yes you can slag this comment, or get over excited but its simply reality... We just are not good enough yet.

Agree12 Disagree2

So after playing some of his best games of his career. Out of all the possible clubs he is immediately coming to Sheffield Wednesday. Or have you just watched the Bradford game and decided to put it on here? I think we can guess...

Agree7 Disagree1

We were linked with him before the transfer window but having seen some of his displays recently I doubt we will afford him now

Wednesday to sign Gary Taylor- Fletcher

Believable2 Unbelievable8

Nothing against GTF, but if this happens it would be a disaster because it would mean Jones is staying.

Agree3 Disagree6

Don't like to say it but, sadly, Dave Jones looks set to stay

Wednesday are set to sign leroy lita jamie vardy and ross barkley by around a weeks time lita could be signing in the next 48 hours!!!!!

Agree6 Disagree8

We won't be signing anyone until we no save jones future at the club

Agree3 Disagree3

Dave jones has got to go .

Agree10 Disagree7

Dave jones out. not next week, not tomorrow, now!!!!!!!!! he's murdering our club day by day and milan is sitting watching him do it. what are they up to?? is it a business thing?? we know milan can be fatal when he wants rid of a manager as gary megson found out after all the success he brought us so alterier motives must be at work. what we need is an owner that's screaming out for victories game in and game out and a manager that wants the same. a winning team off the pitch aswell as on it.

Agree6 Disagree9

Scissors, paper, stone to see who pays bill

Agree1 Disagree2

Hope Milan slips him his P45 with the bill, how long can this go on, clear to the majority I think now that Jones has to go and quickly

Agree4 Disagree7

Dave Jones should have been sacked 2 months ago he is taking our club backwards its about time milan pulled that trigger !

Agree6 Disagree9

Jesus, DJ has been doing alot of work at the club, last summer was about making a squad big enough to compete. Most of the players bought are young and will need time, this is what DJ does buy young cheap players and bring them on. Patience is key in this transitional period we will be great under DJ just wait! UTO

Agree14 Disagree4

The above is MM policy too. Megson fan club do not realise he would not compromise with MM hence relationship broke down and why he spends more time not working than working. Just give it a rest you are just making us look fools in eyes of every other club.

Agree1 Disagree1

Alan Lee of Huddersfield to sign for you this week.

Believable3 Unbelievable25

I really hope not. He's a right donkey

Agree14 Disagree3

I seriously hope not! What a *** of a player he is!

Agree4 Disagree2

Dave jones for the sack I think if Wednesday do not get a win against hull

Agree4 Disagree10

Some people eed to realise if you are not given the readies difficult to brinng in quality. QPR heavily sponsored our signing of Boothroyd on grounds he would play if fit. Also Milan will only spend decent money to buy young players which can be developed and sold on. Hence limited money availble for experienced signings, we all knew needed new players for this league and in end we made desperate plunge for Taylor etc as we could not afford others on offer.

Agree7 Disagree1

Wednesday to sign Leroy Lita on loan for rest of the season.

Agree3 Disagree1

Rob Earnshaw, Leigh Griffiths, Niall McGinn all targets for Mr Jones

Agree3 Disagree2

Martin Taylor, Daniel Jones and Chris Maguire all set to leave s6

Agree7 Disagree2

It seems crazy to me, got the club at next to nothing, talk of back to the prem or where it belongs to be, money in the bank but nothing to spend!?

Agree1 Disagree0

michael chopra to sign on loan after falling way down pecking order at ipswich

Believable5 Unbelievable15

So we want him because he's that good he's way down order at another struggling team?

Agree11 Disagree5

Great sign somebody who not good enough for ipswich! Sounds about right

Agree14 Disagree4

We could sign the most in form striker in the country but that does not guarantee goals unless the team creating chances which we are not

Agree11 Disagree2

I know this is rubbish because a new striker is already in the bag. Alan Lee is signing for Wednesday by the end of the week on a full time basis. Also Gary Madine is going back to Carlisle on a 6 week loan deal rather than as assumed Swindon. I've never rated Alan Lee but he may make a good target man for our speedy wingers.

Agree0 Disagree8

Kieron dyer just spotted at s6

Believable3 Unbelievable17

Just left qpr and jump to s6 in 10mins from london to sheffield, yeh sure ;) lol xx

Agree13 Disagree1

Lame rumour

I think he meant Essex, lol

Kieron Dyer has been released by Queens Park Rangers. the prem may be too much for him now, but he could do a great job in the championship, dont think we could afford his wages though ?

Believable8 Unbelievable6

If he is not fit enough for the prem then he won't be fit enough for the championship either which is more high tempo. It's only wen u step down to semi pro that u allow ur body to recover and get through games

Agree4 Disagree3

I think he could add something to our cause, certainly on some kind of 'pay as you play' deal to protect ourselves in that respect. All dependent on wage expectations of course.

Agree4 Disagree2

He's crocked. Too much of a gamble for my liking

Agree5 Disagree1

Well i suppose we have the northern general and the hallamshire which would fit nicely for him

Agree2 Disagree0

Nathan Smith to sign from Lincoln

Believable0 Unbelievable11

Nathan Smith is a Left back at Chesterfield never played at Lincoln ??

Wednesday to sign Wigan Striker Mauro Boselli, on an initial loan deal to run to the end of the season. His chances have been limited this season with the success of new signing Kone forcing Boselli further down the pecking order. Also heard a rumour regarding Ebanks Blake, who has become unsettled at Wolves, makes sense with Jones ties with the club, a little uninspiring but better than our current crop of strikers. I would imagine if these 2 were to come in Madine would be off to Swindon on loan and Maguire to Portmouth - Both deals fell through for one reason or another, think Madine would really benefit from the move.

Believable10 Unbelievable5

I'd take Ebanks, he's proved he can score goals at this level. Not so sure about Boselli though..

Agree10 Disagree1

Boselli is a brilliant player would love both him and Ebanks-Blake

Think we need a winger and a CM too !

Agree6 Disagree3

08 Jan 2013 18:59:36
We should get rid of McGuire and sign a defender and striker who can score goals

Agree0 Disagree3

Get rid of Maguire who hasn't been given a chance? Makes sense!

Sheffield Wed manager Jones will look to bring in Bury playmaker Peter Sweeney in a loan exchange for an out of favour forward

The said forward is stalling on a new contract.

No chance not good enough

Agree6 Disagree2

Not good enough?

Well that meets DJ's expectations then. I expect him signed in a week

Agree4 Disagree1

When on form Sweeney is a terrific player and easily good enough to play in the Championship . Unfortunately he doesn't fit in with Blackwells style of play so he looks certain to leave in January

Agree1 Disagree0

Bring in a player from bury you sound like DJ we need to go up not down eric the owl

Agree1 Disagree0

He gone to AFC Wimbledon

Mm in talks over a possible takeover of the massive and doesn't want to invest any more money so sorry chaps looks like a quiet January

Believable5 Unbelievable7

Doesn't suprise me at all. MM has shown his lack of interest in the club by the lack of big money signings in the summer. I get the feeling he wants to make as much profit out of Wednesday as possible. That may be true of most chairman but in this instance it could cost the club a place in the Championship next season. So much for the premier in two seasons. More likely yet another division 1 steel city derby.

Agree8 Disagree3

Most fans never embraced MM when he took over even though he saved our club .And when he sacked GM the abuse he took would be enough to P**s anybody off, But he forgave but the torrent of abuse he continues to get from so called fans is getting boring we need him more than he needs us, and if he does sell I for one would not blame him, Just remember not every takeover means massive investment look at Blackburn , Forest, and many others we were lucky to get MM so grow up you knockers see the light and get behind the Team and the management and show how massive you really are.

Agree7 Disagree3

08 Jan 2013 15:15:11
See what light.
The stadium lights of oldham.
Thats where we are heading.
No one could spend less than mm and no manager could have made more of a mess.
Whats to get behind.

Agree1 Disagree9

Thank You for that Rant

But sorry Milan you have lost the support of the fans because of your lack of investment and continual support of a very poor manager who has lost his way

Put us all out of our misery and sell us to someone prepared to take us further and who has the best interests of Sheffield Wednesday at heart and not just profit margins

Agree1 Disagree7

Rubbish all our fans took MM to our hearts - look back at his own reports and see ! in his own words he was amazed at the support given to him from this clubs supporters This family(his words not mine) wot are you on about ????? eric the owl UTO

Agree8 Disagree0

Eric the owl lives in Cloud Cuckoo

Mandaric is only interested in pound notes as you will see soon my feathered friend

MM is a sly old fox who will ditch us as soon as he can make his profit!

Agree0 Disagree3

I don't think that it is Eric living in cloud cuckoo land.
Your just an a***.

Agree1 Disagree0

Seriously it's took you this long to work that out? Pipe dream speech of prem in the next two years to boost ticket and merchandise sales to get back what little money he put in. However, Eric is correct not many people saw past the joy of not going in to administration so rightly so he was heralded as the messiah, a bit hypocritical to turn your back on him just because he's not splashing the cash.
