    The Home Grown Players Thread

    Would I be right in saying that Vardy does not count as home grown as he was not trained at Sheff Wed for three years before 21?

    Iborra - Key Player?

    Of course, the one for diving. Damn that's a shame.

    Iborra - Key Player?

    If James is available I might want to go with him alongside Iborra. How come Ndidi is out for two matches?

    Iborra - Key Player?

    Sorry I'll try and keep it in the off season from now on

    Good points. Perhaps a better control then might be a home grown restriction? I believe that such rules are in place at the moment, but clearly they are not that restrictive as the mega money is still spent on the next hot thing from the continent when a new player is 'needed'. While this would probably not stop all the best players accumulating at the biggest clubs, there would at least be a trickle down effect and a more level playing field could be generated.

    I like the fact that there are financial control rules in place, and I want my club to comply with them, so it is a little disheartening to effectively conclusively be found guilty of flouting them. However you are absolutely correct that, and this is something that goes over the head of over clubs' fans, we would have been better off WITHOUT spending the stupid sums on fees + wages on the Mills's and Beckfords of this world. We'd actually gone into savings and cost cutting mode when we got the team together that thrust us to promotion.
  7. Absolutely. He was my MOM in a bad first half, and was only withdrawn early in the second.

    The equaliser against Villa at home in the title season. Vardy wasn't it.

    Vardy's Top 10 Premier League Goals

    Does anybody know who the unnamed club who bid £1m in the January before we signed him was?

    Hatem Ben Arfa under Claude Puel

    Ah, so he'll be joining next season then.

    League 1 & League 2 thread 2017/2018

    I think it's more about appointing a premier league official, rather than changing it because of the guy's name. Couldn't stop laughing when I read it though
  12. Michael Vaughan's a Sheffield Wednesday fan isn't he? How's that Portuguese manager working out for you Mikey?

    Ben or Kasper most to blame

    100% of the goals we've conceded, in my opinion, have been because of the ball going in the net

    Rumble's Slightly Positive Expected Goals Ramble

    It's funny what you say about being hung up one side or the other - that's a bit like what modern society is like. You can't have a neutral position, you have to be massively for or totally opposed. A bit like when Ranieri was sacked - most City fans were sad when it happened, but some would accept the decision as being best for the club going forward. But the outcry from the anti-sacking media almost forces you to defend your position to such an extent that it makes you feel like you wanted him hung drawn and quartered. Anyway back on topic, relying entirely on stats is of course a fool's gambit. Wasn't there some stat in the 80s going round that said that one in every nine shots taken resulted in a goal? So teams were encouraged to just shoot on sight. Doesn't take a genius to work out why that didn't work. Point being that stats can certainly act as an aid, but you shouldn't rely on them entirely. Glad you clarified about the fisting aspect - wouldn't want to cause any confusion.
