Is their manager playing early mind games to catch us unawares at the Hillsborough Stadium, and can we twitter the Owls? Who's to watch out for and will we go new look team or no?

Without a doubt if I'd'a composed the thread title, not only would I'd'a'not given it two variations but I'd'a referenced Luhukay/Lucky in there somewhere. :D

Compose a good title and I'll swap it. :wink:
"When Saturday Comes" was a football film based around Sheffield(United actually), made back in 1996 and starring Sean Bean, and what with the Owls being Sheffield Wednesday..and, oh, never mind..on with it... :D

I quite like the thread title. It was so good it spawned its own offspring :)

We should have a chance in this game. Sheffield Wed have made a couple of puzzling appointments in Katrien Meire as chief executive and Josh Luhukay as manager. Meire was hated at Charlton as part of the loathed ownership duo along with Roland Duchatelet as between them they appointed a number of foreign managers who didn't adapt to the English game and lasted a very short space of time. Charlton have ended up in L1. And now there is a sense of history repeating at Sheffield Wed with Luhukay's experience being mostly in the German second division. Five successive defeats and the manager declaring the team has no confidence does not look good. No Bannan, no Forestieri, no Hooper, no Fletcher, no Kieran Lee, no David Marshall in goal. They look a different team completely than the one that nearly got promoted twice under Carvahal.

I had no idea about this one :oops: Looks like it's sold out or it's too late to buy tickets. Any pay on the gate?

Theirs presumably scored by Jordan Rhodes, earning his £35,000 a week by scoring against us as usual. He's scored 8 in 11 appearances; at a total of 842 minutes against us that's one every 105 minutes. So maybe he'll score on an empty pitch just as the jubilant away end empties... :D

And was 4ucking shit - as is every attempt to ever make a film about football, and as is anything with Sean Bean in it as he's a shit actor.

He's one of these who, like Ray Winstone, only ever plays himself in everything he's in.

Other than for that, when Saturday afternoon does come we'll lose 1-0.

And with that I'll bid you all a good morning. :)

Apart from GoT. But yes WsC was a dreadful, dreadful film. Entirely unrealistic as well. Which for a film that was mean to be "gritty and realistic" is an issue.

Agree on the result too sadly.

Football films are very hard to get right. Even if you can get the acting right, football writes its own narratives, and they aren't very often structured in the traditional build-to-a-climax way. For every Liverpool-Arsenal 89 there's a thousand ground-out 1-0 wins which are celebrated enthusiastically but not calibrated cinematically.

I thought it was a superb film, especially the bits featuring the kestrel.

The book fever pitch is how you do it narrative justice IMHO.

ITV also did a drama with Neil Morrissey around the Euro 96 (the football was tangential to the story) but I thought it was quite good. Probably wasn't in hindsight, but certainly how I remember it.

However, the damned united has to be the pinnacle both book and film form were top, top class.

That one with Pele was alright, and that one with the Indian lass was okay too.

Ended as the most obvious draw ever. To beat Germany in reality mut be hard to take for them, to do it in a film and World War III would have broken out immediately. It was reasonably enjoyable because the film wasn't just about football, and then again, how could you have such a film without an American being the hero, and Sylvester Stalone at that. :wink:

They invented cinematography. It's a little known clause of their Hollywood trademark that an American must always be the main hero (like whatsisface on the motorbike in the Great Escape - if they'd have played football whilst spreading dirt, dug up by the Limeys, from their shorts he'd have scored a goal, probably while wearing his baseball mitt just to underline his impeccable American fortitude).
PS all this film talk is admirably diverting my attention away from the usual pre-match nail biting tension. Excellent thread title choice, sir.

Got a feeling in my waters we'll win this.
