I am surprised he has gone. For one who is going to succeed him? Wednesday are a big club but perennial under-achievers and more importantly the whole team needs an overhaul. We need a new keeper, we could do with another centre-back, and we need a bit of creativity in midfield. A winger and a quality striker would help but it's not Christmas. Yet.
It's a shame as he had just celebrated two years in charge of Wednesday and, personally, I thought he was the right man for the job. However, one point remains: Wednesday are already in a relegation cock-fight but we are yet to play the majority of the good teams. It may well be a very long season.
He did get you promoted in his first season in charge.
But you have played one of the good when you beat us in August.
Thanks for the memories...
I think about half of the football league could claim to fit that description whether it be down to a glorious past or coming from a large City yet there is only room for 20 places for teams in the Premiership. In the Premiership you now have teams like Fulham, Wigan, Charlton and Watford - all teams that are not particularly big but have achieved a lot in recent times. Supporters of these so called "Big clubs" ought to get things into perspective and can learn from these "lesser" teams.
