Well the opening account is over,

2-2 with the Dingles, but 2 up at half time,

feels like a defeat really.

clarke and Sodje out for a month each

Rochdale in the cup 1st round tomorrow, need to win really , to try and get some much needed revenue, to get another couple of players in !!

( still could be worse, could be a Norwich fan !! )


I went home for the weekend, for a list of reasons,

the main one to see Sheffield Wednesday play in a friendly vs Blackburn.

 I’m glad to say I got to See Akpo Sodje play, and score a trademark talismanic goal. Only for him to go off in the second half with what looked like a groin injury !!!

2  nil down after 20 minutes and it looked grim, but Akpos brilliant goal, tudguys clever finish, and a saved penalty by Grant ( after the most stupid Wood’s pull down ) all meant thatthe game finished 2-2

 Highlights were The fox in the box, who looked sharp, quick, and if he had someone to play alongside, maybe Carke, ( if he is isn’t injured now ) it could be an interesting season, Franny Jeffers, you owe us a few goal!!! Another plus was the now fit Etienne Essajas, who again worked tirelessly !!!

   Come on Akpo, we need you fit for this season !!!

The return of the talismanic Akpo, last nite

Of course saw a goal, against Stocksbridge Steels

Akpo, keep a clean bill of health, and the play offs are looking good !!

   ( Will someone get Marcus , that contract extension, and a pen , please !!! )

 The Future is Bright….  The Future is Blue and White !!!

Apparently Sheffield Wednesday, have a striker crisis, I think this “crisis” has been around for about, well, I’ve followed them since 1980, so I guess then…..+ some more. (D. Hirst get your boots, you may be needed  still!!)

  Yes players are out of contract in the summer and the talk is that SWFC need Dele Adebola  or Paul Heffernam…   why ??  If they could get Akpo fit for next season, ( look lets face it, he won’t make too much impact now this term ) and with Tudguy, and Clarke, we surely have the strikers .

The problem is not the strikers, but with the support to the strikers, Wednesday, have not given any supply to their strikers, since the days of their talismanic genius’s Sheridan and Waddle.  If SWFC are going to score more goal, then get the ball to the strikers, that is the key. Getting the spine of the team, is crucial, I know the clubs budget is paper thin, and we have done magnificantly really this season,  come on, at the start of the season, you would have settled for 10th , or 12th, and have a proposal for investment, and two new directors, with vision.

Stick with the cause, The future is bright , the future is blue and white !!

( all we need is a fit Akpo ! )

Another 10 days till the long awaited return of the talismanic Akpo Sodje…   but at least he played yesterday, and scored.

 Sheffield Wednesday, need the striker back soon as,  Tudguy can’t do it alone, and Leon clarke, though scores doesn’t seem to be prefered… tough games are coming up, in Burnley, reading, and wolves, and preston, and points MUST be obtained . The loss of steve watson for the rest of the season, and only recent comebacks for Hinds and Simek add to the frailty of the teams spine. Although the playoffs are looking as only a distant hope now, we are still only approx 12 points above relegation,

Consolidation, consolidation, consolidation are the key words for the rest of the season, get the take – over sorted, and strengthen for next year,

but to do this we need a fit Akpo !!
