'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Jimmy Jimmy!

As expected, attacking midfielder Jimmy Smith is set to become Brian Laws first loan signing of the close season on Thursday.

At Chelsea since the age of nine, the youngster has Championship experience with Norwich and QPR, and will sign for Wednesday in a deal which runs until January 10th.

Brian Laws told the official site: 'Laws said: 'I'm really pleased to be getting the services of Jimmy Smith on board. He's a high-energy player with an abundance of natural talent and I'm extremely confident he can make a difference to our midfield.'

Smith is a former England Under 19 international and made 31 appearances for the R's and nine for the Canaries, and was top scorer for Chelsea reserves two seasons ago.

The Owls' engine room is looking a whole lot healthier following the acquisition of James O'Connor and now Smith, complementing the drive and enthusiasm of Sean McAllister.

O'Connor, Smith and McCallister - relegation material. Rubbish.

What a shining wit you are.

onedeaddj - you can't even spell Mcallisters name.

Midfield is looking far better than last season already! Well done Brian.
will it ever happen
Absolute quality, Next season looks very good as now we have competition in the most important part of the field.
Bigash
hopefully we can have a good season now
Barton6435
is he defensive or attacking
mick66owl
I think O'connor will do well for us, Jimmy smith played 31 games in an ever imrpoving QPR side last year, plus he wouldnt be at Chelsea if he wasnt decent. With Mcallister keeping them honest to get a place I have to agree with WIEH, looks far better than last season already
Aston Owl
i think smiths attacking player mick from what ive heard and that oconnor suposed to be a hard working player so a good combination if it works
boothe
quality young player, but dont think he is the type of player that is going to save you from relegation. you could do with a few old heads coming in as you have generally a team of muppet babies

How are your new signings coming along, bfl... oh, not made any yet?

RE: 1889, hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

On the scab again, I see!

Bfl1889, isn't it the same 'muppet babies' that took 4 points from you last season which meant that we stayed up and and you stayed down?? Hmm.
chapowl
yes very true. there isnt any rush to sign anyone as long as they are quality signings that is going to make a difference. your signings are that of a small club that is going down for sure this season. you were lucky last season but dont think lady luck will be with you this time. anyway who do you lot want to see come in this season? names wise that could be realistic?
bladesforlife1889
if you look on wikipedia it says hes already in our squad so it looks like good news!
Swfc4Life
Had any of you even heard of O'Connor or Smith before we were linked with them? No because at best they are average players and at worst relegation fodder. End of discussion.
onedeaddj
says on the OS weve got the option of extending it for the season
Barton6435
Does Bladesforlife1889 really think anybody is in any way interested in anything he has to say. I would never enter a SUFC forum as I couldn't be bothered wasting my time. Whenever I see that name at the bottom of a comment I just skip past it without even reading it, as i'm sure most people do. Maybe you thought that it was a novelty to have a United fan on a Wednesday site - but it is actually very tedious. Why don't you visit Uniteds forum. I hear United have the biggest website in the championship - it is in their trophy cabinet.
