    Add me to the list regarding Mcgeeghan. I haven't seen enough of him but he's a big lad who's good in the air and he's not afraid to put his head in where it hurts, I can also see him being converted into a striker in the future.
    I think he should be given the chance to see what he can do before we discard him.

    EastStandRed correct, he was signed when the then Head Coach, identified that we needed a keeper. Everything was agreed with the player, who was coming for less money than he was on, only for club to then say there was no money available. Next breath we signed Knasmullner in a position that was already over filled.

    Jury’s still out for me regarding McGeehan but Mowatt should go. Modern day footballers need to be athletes. Both Mowatt and Mcgeehan didn’t pull any trees up whilst out on loan !!

    We don’t see them everyday in training and if you’re the coach it’s their job on the line, so they have the right to pick and play who they want. Footballs all about opionions, that’s why we love it!!

    Extremely worrying is this recruitment model , we have a new HC who has come with a plan and he needs specific players to carry that plan out or he's wasting his time .

    Baseball is a very individual game played in a team environment , it's simply bat against ball with nothing like the cogs and wheels you experience in football .

    I don't like this one bit and I've had my concerns with Beane right from the moment he came through the door .

    He's experimenting with this club and he needs outing in my opinion , the sooner the better .

    Only in Sheffield.
    On the other hand Barnsley have spent 35 seasons in’the 3rd and 4th tiers of English football.

    You’re in’the third tier now, be the third season in’the last five I believe.

    Poor effort hardly meritting a reply but I'll just add we have spent 76 seasons at the second tier (Second Division and Championship) which is more than any other league club. Considering the size of the catchment area it is a great achievement. Sheffield is the 4th largest city in the UK but even the top club in the city, Sheffield Wednesday, haven't won owt for ages.
    I believe the other team Sheffield United won the First Division in 1899 and the FA Cup in 1925, nothing important since.

    Seeing as you,like stats, 63 years in the top tier. Do you think 76 seasons in’the 2nd tier is an achievement ? When will you get to 77 ?

    Four FA cup’wins by the way. Wednesday ? Happy bouncing day massacre.

    «* Catchment area «* what you talking about ?

    LOL. No good running away, let’s stick with the «* catchment area «* point and carry on the discussion.

    I thought it was a widely used term.

    1. Catchment area = the geographical area surrounding a ground containing the population the club is likely to draw it's support from.

    2. The larger the population, the larger the crowd that is likely to be generated.

    3. The larger the crowd, the more income that can be generated.

    4. The more income, the better the player that can be brought in.

    5. The better the player, the more the likelihood of success.

    There are anomalies such as Sheffield and Newcastle where heavily populated catchment areas haven't brought success despite the large attendances but generally the above has held true since the Football League was formed.

    The population of Tyneside is almost 800,000, and there is one club. Sheffield’s population is roughly 518,000 and there are two clubs with roughly equal support, unlike say Stoke or Nottingham.

    Barnsley Met Borough is roughly 23I,000.


    Ipswich and Burnley have done well with small catchment areas.

    You're comparing the Metropolitan Borough of Barnsley with the city part of Sheffield. The equivalent boundary of Sheffield has a population of 722,000 within it.

    I thought "Stoke" had Stoke City and Port Vale and "Nottingham" had Forest and County.

    I Googled "Sheffield population"--a few official websites appear. Take your pick of two or three.

    Says the genius who’s nostalgic for the 1950s when Barnsley regularly had «*25,000 plus average attendances*» but when challenged to provide evidence came up with a historical high of 21,000 and that being 1948 👋

    Well I’ve «*googled*» but didn’t find anywhere that gave that figure, hence the request for a link, which you’ve failed to provide. You’re not animallittle in disguise by any chance ?

    Did you go to the same school, or are all Barnsley schools useless ?

    I remain patient and civilised, not wishing to descend to your level of abuse.

    The first one I tried was "World population review.com/world cities/sheffield". There in big writing on the right you will see--
    "How many people live in Sheffield ? 722,000.

    My interest in this is over.
