Half the deadwood we are trying or have shifted look to be Scott’s signings (Onel and JLS) whilst Browne was here before Warnock. 

I wouldn't describe Onel as deadwood personally. The only reason he left is exactly because the manager and style of play changed. I also think there's a very good chance we would have got him with or without Scott as I believe he is widely believed to be the player Warnock said he'd "take in a heartbeat" when potential transfers were being discussed.

Lumley?

The one and only time I'll be itk- Lad fell out with Gardner and bowyer after they got him to sign a new deal with the promise of first team opportunity and they never followed through.  Giv

Thing that’s *** me off with this Tav talk is the disrespect from our fans on social media and forums, more so social media but I have seen comments today like ‘ I will drive him there’ in regards to

So by your logic are you saying certain managers don't deserve credit for certain achievements because other managers of similar ilk could POSSIBLY do the same thing?

I get where you're coming from but it was hardly Roberto Di Matteo winning the Champions League though, was it?

You can respect the way he came in for sure but I think it's important to acknowledge the difficulty of the task that he had when he came in, it wasn't overwhelming and he had a good group of players to work with.

I wouldn't be surprised if Lewis Wing's loan at Sheff Wed was cancelled and he ended up at another club.

https://www.examinerlive.co.uk/sport/football/news/sheffield-wednesday-player-moore-snub-22850581

"Wing is one of six loan players on the Owls' books. English Football League rules stipulate only five can be named in a matchday squad.

Although Moore has no qualms with carrying lots of loans, the likelihood is Wednesday will sign at least one more before the January deadline. Talks are ongoing with Arsenal over borrowing striker Tyreece John-Jules for the remainder of the campaign.

There are big question marks surrounding Wing and Lewis Gibson's futures. Neither Wing nor Gibson have fulfilled their potential for various reasons.

Three defeats from the last four matches has derailed the Owls' promotion push and Moore must quickly decide on the make-up of his loan contingent. Their season could hinge on the decision."

let Wednesday and Wings agent do the legwork, no need for us to get overly involved.

rather we concentrated on players we need to move on, or bring in.

I'm not sure they'd thank you for Lewis Wing, even on a free.  No wonder they think Gibbo hates them.

I thought Wing would be a standout player in League 1. The fact that he hasn't been suggests that there's no way back fort him here, with us looking up and with the likes of McGree and Payero already filling the spots on the bench.

He probably hasn't done enough for any club to part with money in order to sign him. I reckon we'll release him at the end of the season (assuming he did sign an extension, as reports were somewhat confusing IIRC)

So what you're saying is that they'd be "flying without Wing"?

It was a really bad decision of his not to stay at Rotherham, in hindsight.  I can't see them wanting him back now though, they don't need him, and their fans hate him after some comments he made when he signed for Sheff Wed.

I think he's shown here initially and in his loans at Yeovil and Rotherham that he can be a useful player, it's just finding the right fit and style of play for him.

Sort of.

He was identified by the recruitment team (Scott) and Warnock accepted after checking with his guy in France.

Goes by the name of Pepe Le Pue!😁

Regardless of who signed Onel it was a good signing at the time due to the tactics we played. It just happened to change when the new manager came in, That happens, but I'm not blaming anyone for loaning him in the first place, Fwiw the responsible person should be commended for just loaning him and buying him.

    • imo, anyone who criticises Marcus T either doesn't see us playing very often or doesn't have a particularly good understanding of the game. Not meaning to sound harsh, but his contribution to the team is very clear to see. He's not perfect by any means, but then not many players are, especially at this level. If you're just simply looking for players to criticise then there are usually about 8 or 9 players you should start with before Mr T each game  
    • I honestly believe a full season under Wilder in the LCM role would show everyone just how good he is. I think if you took him out of our midfield you'd see how bad and unbalanced it is. McGree and Crooks won't work because neither of them cover enough ground or do the defensive side of the game.  Howson I love but let's be honest he's not a traditional out and out CDM. He losses the ball too often in bad positions and his positioning for CDM can be quite poor. He brings commitment, energy and workrate though.  For me in midfield we need a LWB, CDM and an RCM. I would drop Crooks to the bench or move him on. I know that he's scored ten goals this season but I believe we can sign players that more suit Wilders system with energy, pressing and intensity. I would keep him for the bench but personally would look to replace him in the starting team. Tavernier was in the Top 10 for both Key Passes and Tackles Won. He was ranked 3rd for passes in the final third. He's expected goals and assists combined for this season was 15. I could see him getting 15-20 goal contributions in a full season under Wilder. He had 10 this season and has shown real signs of improvement. He does a lot more than what people realise for the team.  Tavernier was given corners because he was the only real left-footed option in the team. I do agree though that most of his deliveries were relatively poor considering he's our designated corner kick tacker they didn't look practiced.
    • Wouldn't call it interesting personally (i.e. not sure what there is to draw from it), think it just reinforces the club are happy they moved on from him. I can't remember the last time they did a season long goals montage so I could be wrong but it feels like this alone is a little out of the ordinary and perhaps only put together because Wilder is at the helm. I think the club is just continuing to want to push Wilder and positivity around him, that's how they approached the Season Card campaign too. It's not necessarily wanting to reflect on the season just gone as a whole but more to give an idea of what's to come.
    • I don't think corner taking ability is really something that pushes someone over that £10m threshold. He can be both one of our better corner takers, and still not be a particularly good corner taker, but that really feels like grasping at straws for something to still criticise him with. 
    • For what it’s worth with Tav, I genuinely think he would flourish as a left wing back, and simplified his game.  Tav travels well with the ball, is energetic and I can’t fault his work ethic at all. He always puts a shift in. But I just think he could use it so much better than he is currently doing from watching him this season. I still think he has some work to do in the final third, which ironically was where we struggled most to break teams down. I just don’t think he’s there yet and I don’t think he does a job which an additional player in midfielder couldn’t do (he’s replaceable).   For a player who takes corners, you’d expect better delivery on a more consistent basis for him to be worth 10m + which some are quoting on various platforms.    I realise that Tav is very polarised on the opinion poll. Like I say, I don’t hate him and think he’s ‘bad’, he’s just not consistent enough yet to be deemed as integral to how we play in midfield in my view
