Jake Wright was the defensive organiser (very aware of what’s going on, always talking, shouting, pointing) in our league one promotion year and is actually bit of a legend at Bramall Lane after his r

Big Wednesday fan here. Kieran Lee has been one hell of a player for us. I’d actually say he’s been our best player since we got relegated from the premier league in 2000. Only problem is that we

Can loan signings be seen as moneyball acquisitions really? 

I reckon he'll be reet, but injured by Christmas 😆

Possibly not, unless he’s on loan with view to signing permanently.

Would think so 

Moneyball isn’t just about buying and selling for a profit, part of it is just getting the best team together within a budget 

Or at least that’s what I got from watching the film last week. Brad Pitt signed a few old timers who could do a job but had no resale value 

Although I think our recruitment policy is more Bingo ball than moneyball

We need to be doing this, rather than bring in a load of young uns with potential, we need to get out of this shite league first time.

Players in the squad that can play full back:

Jones, Hickman, Kioso, Brockbank, Baptiste. 

Gordon, Taft, Mascoll, Greenidge, Delaney.

I think we're covered there.

We've got 8 that can play centre back if we include Brockbank, Senior and Edwards.

A winger or 2 that can cross a ball next please.

We have a young lad called Ronan Darcy, he can put a cracking delivery in.

We know that, I dont think IE agrees.  I remember after Darcy had played 3 or 4 games we were remarking at the home games about what a quality ball he puts in, consistently, from free kicks and corners.  His crossing ability wasn't what his game was built on but it was superb if my fading memory serves me right.

To be fair, I thought Darcy would be a bit slight for this league and that might still be the case but from the games I’ve seen, there are no cloggers.

Its been a bit pedestrianised to be honest so give him a go - even if its from the bench

I've also been surprised by the amount of teams who seem to be playing 'Brand Evatt' better we do!
