Terry getting injured is the worst part about today.  Just the usual shit luck.

I'll file that one under "one of those days".  I don't think we should overreact to the odd defeat (or overreact to wins), the Championship throws these results from nowhere around.

We just aren't consistent or convincing enough. We'll be in play off contention but we'll have plenty more days like this before the end of the season. And we desperately need a reliable goalscorer other than Kodjia.

Agree with that. The first half was one of those games where everything went wrong from the early goal to Terry and Snoddgrass going off. We worked hard enough to get ourselves back into but it didnt go for us. One to forget and dust ourselves down from after the interntional break.

Not many birds in the Sheffield Wednesday crowd, the nearest to a pair of boobs was the fat bold bloke who watched the whole game with his top off.

Some quality insight into the game there.

So Samba in the team for the foreseeable future then. Has our season just imploded?
Roll on January.

Not sure why he tampered with the formation. Surely if JO was out then bring someone in to do his job. We looked well short in midfield and let Bannan run the show. It's shame as some results went for us and we could have made some ground.

One would think Jedinak with Whelan in the centre with Hourahane further forward in the Platt role would have been a good bet, maybe even like that with everyone fit pushing Kodjia and Adomah into the wide positions.

It sounds as if we were unfortunate to concede an early goal and then lose Terry, but good managers and teams should be able to recover from such setbacks.  Unfortunately typical of Bruce to follow up a good performance with a poor one or vice versa.  I stick with my view that play-offs are the best we can hope for because of this inconsistency.  And I still think Bruce is not getting anywhere near as much out of this squad as he should or could be.
You've nailed it here, for me. Both Adomah and Snodgrass were desperate today, Hourihane was given a lesson by BB and Whelan is very limited.

Has to be filed away as 'one of those days'

Awful start which clearly knocked us bandy for a while. Quite a few off days but i thought the effort was there so that's something to cling to.

Move on, this one is now forgotten and it's onto QPR

He probably gave up after 30 seconds and I can't say I blame him. I'm wondering whether the 'rim' in the user name is a reference to something naughty though.
