The Wednesday
2016 has been kind to us so far, we've won 4 out of our 6 league games and that little run of form has moved us into the top six, sweating on the fitness of Westwood and Hutchinson ahead of the visit of the Bees but given our home form this season you have to fancy us Saturday.

That said I thought Brentford were unlucky not to beat us at their place back in September and even more unfortunate to actually lose in the last minute but that's football. They have a decent squad albeit one that has been decimated by both injuries and player sales this season.

Our home record v them in my lifetime has been patchy, a League Cup win in the 90s for us on our way to lifting the cup, a late Dean Smith header denying the Bees a win in 2004, a Deon Burton inspired victory for the visitors when they had ten men (current Owls loanee Michael Turner sent off on 20 mins) a season later being tempered by our 1-0 win in the Play offs. A 3-1 hammering by the Bees in the 2010/11 campaign that flattered us, a bore draw in 2011/12 with big Mig Llera playing for the Bees and then our 1-0 win last season at ours with Kieran Lee scoring a lateish winner to end a drab night.

2-1 Wednesday 20,432

I think you guys will win here. We look very disjointed at the moment, which is very unusual for us. Can see a lot of possession for us, but little in the way of chances, clear cut or otherwise.

If Judge is on song, we could be easily win, but I'd back a 3-1 Wednesday win.

The rest of the season looks a little lost for us, we'll try to develop and bed in the players we have, but the future is bright for next year.

Hopefully we can get a bit of revenge for the robbery in the first fixture but I highly doubt it. Another loss probably as the season peters out into midtable for us.

Can't really draw anything from the performance due to the sending off, but the line up we started with today would have struggled against most teams in this league.

Some really odd team selections by Smith since he joined

1FF really was a bargain - and thought at the time 3 million was a decent fee!

We got 25000 in league one when we finished 17th, prices dictate, I'd much rather have 4000 less and win most weeks in the championship, hope you're enjoying it down there though

£3m to have Forestieri permanently or £2.5m to have Vydra for a season loan... Fuck me that was bad business on our part.

Yes hes just another 1 of the many deluded fans you have who exaggerate your support massively,very strange.

Shurrup ya bell, I'm wrong fair enough could have sworn we'd got a 25k average down there, our home supports got worse over the last few years and I won't tell anybody any different

Fair do's in admitting it. You have got a lot of deluded fans that do exaggerrate your support though so i apologize for putting you in that bracket.
