Swansea City v Sheffield Wednesday
Liberty Stadium
Wednesday November 25th 2020
Kick off 7.45pm


LIVE a on SKY SPORTS
Swans TV
Radio Wales
Talk Sport 2

A Wednesday kick off at the Liberty, not something we are generally used to but as the next game is away to Nottingham Forest on a Sunday maybe there is some intelligent thought behind it. As it’s becoming evident we have to repeat things on here because some visitors dont grasp things very quickly there is possibly another reason. And that is because Sheffield Wednesday are playing the fixture - then it will go ahead on a Wednesday, just in case someone asks repeatedly the same question like -
‘What day is the game on ?’
Answer ‘Wednesday’
‘Who are the swans playing ?’
Answer ‘Wednesday’

There is a link you just have to think about it and not go on other Swansea City sites looking for a different answer to the quite obvious one you have been told. Right that aside, we will have a look a few things from Monday, hope you are all spiffing 😘 Stay safe and speak soon.


Cooper Pre match

The good people of Sheffield generally live in the Bramall Lane area of the city, which is in Sheffield. Sometimes people who live outside this area go to support Leeds or even Barnsley. The other club in Sheffield is called Wednesday, the reason for this name is because on Wednesdays all their fans, I think it’s about nine of them do dreadful things with their parents. Sheffield Wednesday were the most bentest club in the sixties and invented criminality, they did this by letting their players pocket around 4 shillings to throw games, everyone went to jail including people who didn’t even live in Sheffield or know where it is. They also pretend to have won the FA cup but I’ve got my doubts.


An owl yesterday

Wednesday on a Thursday used to play their home games at Bramall Lane on a Saturday and sometimes on a Monday. They have also played on Sunday’s and Fridays. It’s an amazing statistic. Five other people know this. They now play at another ground. If you visit Owlerton where Wednesday play ( they are called the owls ) but you won’t see any owls. In 1986 a local group of chaps called the BBC captured all the owls in Owlerton and sold them to a restaurant in Wolverton which is on the London line twixt Northampton and Euston. How this link occurred we don’t know, but many books on the BBC ( Big Bad Clowns ) have been written. The Owls did have an equivalent to the BBC but they were always running about shouting and going home quickly. They are, let’s say, a dying breed of owl. The barn owl is a favourite, but don’t think the owls are wise people they are not, they are a bit slow on the uptake and walk about Owlerton with their mouths open staring at things they see every day in disbelief. The goldfish bowl of Owlerton is an interesting place to go. But don’t go there, it’s rubbish and has no owls.

The history of the Pulis

The Pulis is an astonishingly repetitive character often seen hanging around pretty bad football clubs with his cap in his hand. He has two commands ‘get rid of it’ and ‘Lump it’ these are very intricate footballing coaching methods much sought after in the world of international football. A Pulis is now living in Wednesday, which is near Thursday but not Abergavenny or Aberystwyth. The common Pulis has a remarkably local accent to Newport, but as we know the people who live in Newport can’t speak so it’s probably a mistake. If a Pulis turns up at your football club you can be assured he will bring his coaching terminology with him. This will work for nine games, maybe eight then start to stumble and you will get relegated or killed or similar. A Pulis once won six games in a row then didn’t, and was sacked. When a Pulis won four games in row he was sacked then lost five and wasn’t. Wednesday are a religious club and once employed Monks to run their football team but the Monks had a Mrs, and well, we all know what happens there.


This is the religious Monk, another Pulis type but wears a school blazer and likes to look hard. He was in the inbetweeners

Garry or Gary as we like to call him once managed a Wednesday. But then got sacked, Monks always get sacked, it’s because they are shit at running football clubs. You can clearly see he has very odd ears which someone has stuck some counters on.

Match officials
ANDY WOOLMER
Michael George and Daniel Leach


Fourth Official : John Busby


Michael George Referee

The match spotlight will always fall on famous officials. In this case assistant referee (as he likes to be called) Michael George, pictured above in his referees suit, he is fairly well known. Many have carelessly whispered that last Christmas he stopped refereeing but that isn’t true. Not many people had faith in him, but they agreed to give him one more try. It’s not a fantasy that but This is how … he would never let the sun go down on his career, well after all, he knew we were waiting for him. Michael hates players celebrating, kissing a fool he calls it, Michael just wants players to have more freedom though when celebrating, not like they want sex of course, but he is praying for a time he is listened to. Michael once gave a presentation to the FA on corners, a different corner didn’t catch on, they called it too funky, especially for an outside game. One person did think it was amazing but called him a monkey for thinking it. Michael replied This is how I’m waiting for that day, but I do like spinning the wheel to give you everything she wants. He was punched in the face.

Just reading Cooper's briefing, I think we will be without Ayew and Guehi again, starting to think they could be slightly longer term than Cooper is making out but we will see.

Pulis will be licking his lips if the pitch is how it was on Saturday, may sound a bit blase but it's a big worry for me if it's like that Wednesday, the ground staff need to earn their coin and sort it.

Of further significance and well worth noting is that there are over 200 types of Owl. Barn owls for example die young although can live for 15 years.

Wednesday have played competitive games on every day except a Thursday, it must be a curse. Ron Atkinson used to like owls, he kept one in his shed. 👍

Fully concur, we don't need frail on a wet wednesday.

If we play like we did in the first half we should be comfortable. Sustaining it is our challenge.

Pulis will have done his homework. To be fair I was pleasantly surprised at his eloquent and respectful punditry - full of praise for Cooper for his methods and hard work a few weeks ago.

3-1

Agreeing with me is fatal mate.

I would love Cullen to score for us but cant see it.

He IS physically lacking and why with all the gym facilities at the Club?

All out players should be working at the gym. Britton even admitted some did not.

Weds will be kicking Cullen to all points west and our fans cant see it becaue of sentimental home boy worlocks.

Been to Hillsborough with friends I have in the area over a period of almost 40 years. Great club and fans. People in soith Yorkshire ahave same values as most in south Wales so why they get pelters beats me.

You should start watching our games.

Cullen did ok first half when we were in the ascendancy. He had a bit of bite too. But, and this is the key bit he went missing 2nd half when we needed an outlet, a focal point. A double whammy as our other 10 players expect an Ayew to maraude, menace and harass - and score. In effect we played the 2nd half with 10 men, exacerbated when Cullen flunked a golden opportunity.

Edit - a big learning curve for him and some massive boots to fill, to be fair

Sorry that I cant get to watch games Dad, as I work quite alot of weekends, I read what the people I've learnt to trust over the last few years.

Of the two players I've mentioned, Lowe is NOT an out and out striker but will run his blood to water ever game he plays and Cullen is inexperienced at this level but with game time will get better and better as I trust what Jasper says and also hes a jack b@stard through and through so he will also run his blood to water for the cause

I hope that helps Pater.

Would like to see some rotation to utilise our depth and develop some additional options.

- Joel L can play anywhere along the backline and has pace to burn, exciting prospect
- Manning for Bidwell
- Palmer for Fulton (needs a rest) and play Grimes deeper
- Routs for Cullen to establish momentum, bring Cullen on 2nd half to poach

Let's hope we can soon get to these evocative evenings on a wet wednesday under the lights.

I know Manning is a good player but Bidwell is a big part of why we are where we are in the table. Unless it’s specifically for resting purposes .

I think playing the experienced Routs first up is a good idea, will put less pressure on Cullen and maybe he’ll do well against a tiring defence.

I’m not sure Palmer and Fulton are interchangeable- I think the options there are perm any two of Smith, Fulton and Grimes.

Each time I go to Bedd - au........................

-Joel L hasn't been brought in for this season imo, I think we'll see more of him next.
-Manning must be gutted at the moment but it's hard to leave bidwell out when he looks the most likely to create something with his crossing.
-Agree with that one, Fulton looked a bit off Saturday.
-not sure I'd probably give Cullen another run out personally but I see your point.
