Sometimes we just need to hear the truth spoken out loud...
Forestieri, Fletcher, and Fox have all refused to re-sign, with Hutch and Winnall not offered extensions, so those five will be out of contract on the 30th and will not be around to see out the season. Keiran Lee and Atdhe Nuhiu have both signed short-term deals to see out this bizarre campaign.
Hints at Forestieri heading up to Leeds, which would make him rather unpopular at Hillsborough one can conclude. You can just see him getting healthy and his old form back with them, can't you? That'd be tough to swallow.
With that many regulars on their way out, it looks like Wednesday will be more-or-less rebuilding from scratch, whether that's their intent or not. I'm not disappointed, myself, as I thinks it's been a shit, gutless squad for a while. I wish I could say I was confident that they'll do better going forward. At least we won't be watching the same boring shit next time 'round.
I agree completely.
I would have posted the score if you didn't post it first, so I'll say that you passed QPR and moved up to 13th. In terms of finishing in the top half, you trailed 12th place Bristol City by 3 points, and your goal differential is 3 better.
On Wednesday you host second place West Brom, who is 3 points behind Leeds for first and 5 points above third place Brentford.
League One and League Two voted to shorten the season, rank clubs by points per game, and go straight to promotion playoffs. League One has Semifinals first legs on Friday July 3, second legs on Monday July 6, and the Final on Monday July 13. Third place Wycombe Wanderers host the second leg against sixth place Fleetwood Town, and fourth place Oxford United host the second leg against a club who ten seasons ago had 19 points (0.5 per game) in the Premier League, Portsmouth. Portsmouth was relegated three times in four seasons. After four seasons in League Two, they got promoted, and are hoping to get up to League Championship. League Two had the promotion Semifinals. The top three get promoted automatically, and fourth through seventh are in the playoffs. Fifth place Exeter City lost 1-0 at Colchester United. Then Exeter City led 2-1 at home after regulation, and apparently away goals aren't used, because away goals would have advanced Colchester. Exeter scored in the 111th minute to win the aggregate 3-2. The other pair combined for 5 goals, which were all scored away! Fourth place Cheltenham Town looked to be in great shape after a 2-0 win at seventh place Northampton Town, but Northampton won 3-0 at Cheltenham to win the aggregate 3-2. Exeter and Northampton play in the Final tomorrow at 2:30 P.M. Eastern (1:30 P.M. for IvanIV). Anyone who pays for ESPN Plus can watch it online.
0 - 3 FT
We are absolute shit.
Yeah, West Brom is going up but still...
According to initial responses that I saw, the scoreline flattered West Brom and Wednesday weren't too bad. I'd popped on expecting all kinds of wailing and gnashing of teeth, but folks seemed pretty calm. Tough to paint a pretty face on 0-3 though.
Wait till you see Spurs' result today...
English football's doing everything in it's power to destroy my interest in and affection for the game. With considerable success.
Lost 3-1 because that is what losing losers do, they lose.
