Balance

Balance

Vital SWFC contributor Mark Hollins knows where his priorities lie.

'The word 'happiness' would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.'

Every cloud has a 'hi ho' silver lining, eh...

So we missed the play off boat and continue to float in the 'fizzy pop' sea. As gutting as that was/is, Sunday provided us all with a little relief and joy; not that it compensates for our near miss, it simply makes us all smile.

I think the Blades arrogance upon returning (not really a return though when you've only been once in 13 years... let's rephrase on their behalf... ) - during their brief flirt with the top flight has truly come and nibbled on their behind.

As they tumble to Cola Town and further restore the returning balance of superiority to Sheffield and Yorkshire football, we aid that shift by showing promise and success.

Anyway, enough(?!?!) cruel(?!?!) gloating and laughter, what has happened at our gaff this week?

The majority of Owls don't see the striking department as a priority for funds, but I'm someone who sees this area as a 'must buy' zone. Priority 1 is keeper, priority 2 a defender and after that a light dusting of squad players will suffice... won't it?

Not in my eyes. We need a business man up front, someone who will always nick a goal, a poacher, a finisher. 'Macca' I hear you cry. The guy, as much as he loves us, is pretty greedy (if reports are to be believed) and keeping players like that will only have a poor knock on. He was good this year: well, he scored a few. Choice between Deon and Steve? The Burtster wins hands down. For a start he can gel with any of our other strikers, both who are long termers: something which MacLean can't seem to do.

Billy Sharp* has to be in a Wednesday shirt this summer. Not only will grabbing a prolific scorer be good for our goal count, but it also makes a statement that we are taking next season as a serious challenge opportunity. With Bill, Frank, Chris, Glenn, D-D-D-Deon, JJ et al, we can only look top 6 and up.

Let's blow the majority of the budget on him and get moving. We'll no doubt pick up some snazzy freebies and some decently priced first teamers as well, should we spend the Madjid money.

Question - What are the odds on a Sheffield derby 11/08/07?

Answer - Much better than about 4 weeks ago!!!

UTO!!

As posted on the forum yesterday:I would love to see Billy Sharp in a wednesday shirt. I know we have good strikers who all pull their weight(10-13 goals each), but it would be great to have a 20 goal man in our side(as mentioned in a previous article on this site). He also is a different type of striker to Burton and Maclean. Hes an out and out goal scorer. I think Leon Clarke has a lot of promise, but again hes a different type of striker. Yeh, goalkeepers and defenders are our main priority, but i wouldn't mind wednesday splashing the cash on this lad...he will be worth it...even if he is a piggy!

Sharp isn't a MUST buy in my opinion but would be a welcome signing if we pulled it off
