WEDNESDAYITE WEEKLY

BREAKING: WE ARE THE BEST TEAM IN FOOTBALL AGAIN


EDDIEtorial

How good does it feel to win again? Let me try to sum it up.

It's a bit like waking up in the morning to a bacon and egg sandwich in bed, served by Victoria Pendleton wearing a cheerleader's outfit, and then turning on the telly to learn that you got five numbers in the lottery and there's that episode of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air on next when Carlton does the Tom Jones dance.

Something like that, anyway.

Now let's not get carried away here. Clearly we are the best team in football once again, but that doesn't mean we don't have to work extra hard to build on putting away an abject Ipswich side by turning over Peterborough at Hillsborough tomorrow, and then besting Blackpool on Tuesday night.

I think of last Saturday as Level 1 - i.e, we had to win and win well to be anything other than relegation strugglers this season. Tomorrow is Level 2 - a game we should win convincingly in order to show that we are at least a mid-table side in this division. And Tuesday night is Level 3 - a match that, should we take three points, shows the fans, the players and the footballing world that we can compete at the right end of the table. With the confidence and momentum of victories on our side, it's entirely likely that we could go on a run as impressive as the last ten weeks have been soul-destroying.

So let's start tomorrow. It was great to see the fans chanting Jay Bothroyd's name last weekend - let's have that positive vocal support from the stands and drive the team onwards in the right direction.

Last weekend, the Owls showed that they could do the business. Coincidentally, Michael Vaughan did exactly the same on the Strictly dancefloor (I really am a heterosexual guy, I have kids and like girls in bikinis and everything). It would be a great weekend if both those things repeated themselves over the next 48 hours.

Up The Owls!

MATCH BLOG: IPSWICH


OWLS BLOG

The Owls last league match was away at the Tractor Boys of Ipswich and self-confessed Armchair Owls fan Matt Savage reports back with his internet based view of the game.

"With only 12 games on the board, both teams meeting at Portman Road needed all 3 points at the final whistle as both clubs languish in the early relegation zone. Ipswich, acting on their alarming start by parting ways with manager (and ex-Wednesday boss) Paul Jewell, start at the foot of the table.


The visiting Owls (wearing the grey away kit) were quick out of the blocks and quickly put Ipswich on the back foot, forcing an early throw-in from Ross Barkleys cross. Michail Antonio launches the ball in and Ipswich somehow scramble the ball away. Antonio puts the ball back in the box and after a couple of deflections the ball lands the feet of Barkley who side foots the ball home. Wednesday have a shock lead with only a minute and 45 seconds on the clock! "

LINESY ON THE WAY BACK

One of the best pieces of news to come out of SWFC this week was news of a behind-closed-doors friendly victory over local pub side pretending to be a rival club Doncaster Rovers. The Owls won 4-2, with a side containing many faces in the first-team shakeup at S6...but most welcomingly, including last season's unsung hero, Chris 'Scourge of Nick Montgomery' Lines.

Linesy played 45 minutes against Rovers and seems very close to being in contention for selection by Dave Jones in the first team - here at your Weekly we're sure he'll step up to the mark and show that he is ready to do the business in the Championship just like he did for us last season in that joke division that only contains rubbish teams.

REDA UP TO HIS OLD TRICKS AGAIN

The other brilliant thing to appear on Planet SWFC this week was a picture of still-injured-but-getting-better Reda Johnson, who confessed that he was still wearing an air boot and therefore can't do much training or rehab work, and therefore headed back home to France to visit family and friends.

And what friends he has, as this picture clearly shows. Reda, ever the gentleman, appears to be lifting a young lady gently to the floor from a high seat, presumably due to there being some spilled water on the floor. What a fine, upstanding fellow he is!

We're right behind you, Reda - I'm just glad that this club in Marseille didn't need any radiators on account of the warm climate...
