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

Goals from here, there and everywhere

We're not ones to pass up a good stat here at Vital Wednesday and we think the fact that 12 different Wednesday players have got on the scoresheet in 12 league games so far is worth a mention.

Striker Gary Madine may be getting all the plaudits with his ten-goal haul so far this term but Wednesday are finding goals from all across the pitch in npower League One - quite a useful asset.

After twelve games of the Owls' league campaign, 12 different players have already found the back of the net. Wednesday have, of course, romped up to second in the table and have won all six of their home matches thus far - scoring goals aplenty in the process. Boring Gary Megson eh?

As well as top scorer Madine, Rob Jones, David Prutton, Chris Sedgwick, Julian Bennett, Clinton Morrison, Ben Marshall, Liam Palmer, David McGoldrick, James O'Connor, Reda Johnson and Lewis Buxton have all netted in the league.

Morrison is, of course, on-loan at MK Dons at the moment but he still found the back of the net for Wednesday in the 1-1 draw at Charlton Athletic before moving on.

The fact that three of Wednesday's preferred back four - Bennett, Jones and Buxton - have already found the onion bag goes a long way to showing Wednesday's big threat from set-pieces.

But Megson's men can mix it up, with Marshall scoring a couple of fine solo efforts, Madine being the league's current top scorer, and heck, even James O'Connor - no offence James - getting in on the act.

One thing many Owls fans may have been concerned about under the leadership of Megson was perhaps a lack of goals, taking a 1-0 lead and sitting back on it, but a lot of games, especially at home, have been far from that. Away is a different story, but at least things seem to be turning around for the better there, too.

It's a great stat for Wednesdayites, and Megson, to have at this stage of the season, and with Chris O'Grady back in action and Ryan Lowe not far off a return, you can bet there will be moire names added to that list sooner rather than later.

Maybe Danny Batth, Chris Lines, Jose Semedo or Jermaine Johnson can add their name to that list in some fashion this weekend...

Bywater stil hasn't got on the scoresheet yet. Shocking, maybe he should be taking the penalties!
welshyowl

Countdown to PIGfest #1 and I sense there are some Owls out there getting anxious about it. Well relax folks and leave the worrying to them. GRUNTED, they started well enough and even managed to HOG the early season limelight, but they're hardly DRIPPING with confidence now. PORKwality(!)? It's there for all to see and their recent form'SNOUT to write HAM about either. I'd say they're primed and ready for the CHOP. We can go there this time and win in STYle. That'd leave them eight points behind us but with a GAMMON hand but seriously folks, promotion? Those poor deluded fools are BACON up the wrong tree. After Sunday they'll be looking over their SHOULDERS and SCRATCHINGS nervously at their chinny-chin-chins and wondering where their next point will come from. So come on you Owls, get behind the lads and watch them convert those SWINE into SAUSAGES!

Anybody know if Lowe will be fit would be great for him to be on bench as an impact player to finish em off
Wads Wiggle
Megson Out has been surprisingly quiet recently any reason?
realrain
the reason being is his agenda has been well and truly shat on by the current form and confidence being shown on the pitch resulting in positive results, I bet he's gutted!!! no doubt he'll be back with his anti-megson crap after the next defeat.
sussexowl
.....I've got more balls than that. Megson has gone on to echo every single criticism I've made... We need to pass better (a lot better)... Keep posession... stop relying on set pieces. We're unbeaten at home but I've yet to see us play anyone off the park and 3-1 flattered us again on Saturday. Before I join the Megson herd I'll need some convincing performances to match the scores. Sunday being the one exception...WTID
Megson_Out
So the fact you judged the guy really early on because of his reputation and we said give him a bit more time must make you feel a little silly. I will actually agree in a way though M_O or put what has happened into summary. Megson has proved he is not a bad manager and I think you have to agree with that. Whether he goes on to prove he is a really good or great manager we shall hopefully find out over the course of this season. I saw promise in the squad he put together and the recent results have brought a smile to my face. I agree we can still play better, a lot better but on sunday I agree again, only the result matters. If we win M_O how about you change your name and welcome to the forum because the fact you want us to play good football and win games should make you welcome here, hating on a guy who hadn't had long enough to prove himself hasn't!

I see Clintons scored agen for Mk Dons.

THE PERFECT DRAW!!! I know we're on a different subject, but GET IN THERE!! HAVE THAT THE BLUNTS!!!
Balli80
its a shame we was 2-0 down at half time,but look at the stats we battered them.They had two chances and scored,O Grady missed a sitter and we had about 10 chances in all.But i feel if JOC had cut out there second goal and it would have been a different story.
garrymo
Sometimes you need a bit of luck. We didn't get it by grabbing a late equalizer, they got it by scoring first. Pity really, but their second goal was proof our luck was out. Saying that, let's give credit where it's due. The spirit in our squad is stronger now than I've known it for... ages! Heads didn't drop and they never stopped working for each other and for us, the fans. I feel extremely proud this morning and that's thanks to players, management and especially you lot: Wonderful Wednesdayites. Where ever in the world you happen to be, I bet you went to bed last night with a big smile on your face. I sure did!

The highlight for me was going round to my dads on Sunday afternoon, he thought wednesday had lost 2-0 and was pretty miserable, when I said we'd scored 2 late goals and drew 2-2 he was well pleased, the last update he'd heard on the radio was after 75 mins and assumed we'd lost. Looking at the stats a point was the least we deserved, yet again we proved we're one of the biggest clubs in the country by selling out our allocation and having 10K at Hillsborough for the beam back, bet the placed was rocking when Madine scored!! Also, having seen the goal on Sky it was never a foul on the keeper as Wilson claimed, Madine soared like a salmon and cleanly headed the goal above Simonsen who was flapping, great decision ref. I was a bit concerned when I heard Oliver was in charge as he's only about 13 but give him his due it would have been easy to disallow it, other refs may have done given it was the away team that scored it unless they've been issued with a directive to stop protecting keepers and giving free kicks for any slight contact. I'm sure if Wilson saw it again he will agree it was a good goal and if anything should criticise Simonsen and not the ref. A player should never beat a keeper in the air, I still haven't forgiven Shilton for not wiping out Maradona in '86!!
sussexowl
Spot on sussex. How can a 5ft 3" bloke outjump someone at 6ft who is allowed to use his hands??? There was nothing wrong with the goal Agent Wilson has a case of sour grapes. I had a feeling of a power shift yesterday - can't see them finishing above us this season. Thought we played very well. I can't believe that Madine is the same man as last year. I think he has potential premiership qualities. Good touch on the floor and a great header of the ball - best striker we have had in a long time - proved me wrong big time. I feel a bit ropey today though and can't speak properly either.
Radon Barrier
Is that sour grapes or reading the script? If he wants the piggies to treat him as one of their own then Desperate Danny has to learn how to SQUEAL!
