Finally!! but not a winner!!

Well, the new Sheffield Wednesday manager has been announced, drum roll........its Brian Laws!! Yes, you are right to ask who, what, where, why??? Well, I've no idea!! He's got a limited pedigree, never managed in the premier league (unlike Paul Sturrock) and has never taken a team beyond league one. So why you ask is he being trialled at Sheffield Wednesday? Dave Allen has always said he wanted to get someone in who has taken teams into the premier league. Brian Laws is not the right man.

For my money they should have stuck with Sean Macauley (the guy who has 3 wins and draw to his name as caretaker manager) for a few months and waited until the right manager was available. However, I hope I'm wrong!! onwards and upwards!!

still no news.....

After 2 wins and a gallant draw, it seems Sheffield Wednesday don't need a manager after all!!

The fall out from sturrock leaving has fanned the bonfire on the manager merrygoround debate. Dave Allen shouldn't have sacked Sturrock unless there was a better alternative. I like others, thought this replacement would be Nigel Worthington, but it seems like Nigel isn't interested - who can blame him really - its the proverbial poison chalice job. I think its now 10 managers in 10 years for swfc, so where now? Its a huge problem, as we need someone with the pedigree but we can't afford them.

what was wrong with sturrock????

what the?

Sheffield Wednesday have just sacked their manager, Paul Sturrock after a miserable start to the season. That's all well and good, but 2 weeks earlier the board had just offered him a new contract until 2010. I'm just wondering now, what sort of severance pay we are going to have to give him?

However, this could be a blessing in disguise for the club as Wednesday legend, Nigel Worthington is waiting in the wings after himself just being sacked from Norwich.

onwards and upwards!

after further review of the Sheffield Wednesday website today I stumbled across this short statement. Apparently, there was some half time entertainment from a local girl band. As they were introduced as 'coming from sheffield' the opposing Barnsley fans didn't take to them (wonder why) and started to hurl abuse. But it just gets better....the lovely local girls then decided to voice their own opinion, by telling the crowd to 'f#$k off'. The Sun article, says that they were promptly arrested- FANTASTIC!!

finally a win (ish!!)

Sheff Weds finally chalked up a result lifting them out of the Championship relegation zone. By all accounts a lucky 2-1 win over Barnsley but hopefully the start of a winning run!

On the other side of the world, Sydney FC lost to Central Coast Mariners, 3-1 away from home. A dreadful result and a terrible performance from Mark Bentley especially. It just shows that Sydney needs its key players back ASAP!!

next g anyone?

Australia is currently being hit by a marketing blitz on the scale of the recent Coke Zero mega push earlier in the year. Telstra have launched their new 'next g' network? So what is this? Well, I'm only a little tech savvy but I'm not sure if its anything new or in fact its just Telstra's version of 3mobile?

The website doesn't help too much either, it just seems to be a fancy mobile phone shop, with a Beatles soundtrack! I suppose the proof will be in the pudding. I love the idea of having email, TV, music etc.. on one handset but I'm yet to be Wow'd by anything that is affordable. Affordability is the key to all of this. There's no point having a handset that just gets the masses deeper and deeper in debt. One day someone will realise that honesty with pricing is the best policy.

perhaps they should put these in the new wembley?

A great link i stumbled across the other day about the latest invention from Dyson, however it now seems to have been debunked (and see mitsubishi model to left). In any case the concept is something that needs further investigation!!
