Joe Carnall, life with Milburn and his passion for football

TEAMtalk: How did you come to support your club and what are your favourite memories from your time as a fan?

Joe: I didn’t have a choice but to support Sheffield Wednesday as all my family are Wednesdayites. Although we had a great team in the early 90s I was only about 6 so can’t say that I really remember the games. The first exciting team I remember was in the mid 90s when we signed both Paolo Di Canio and Benito Carbone. Just watching them warm up before the game was worth the price of the ticket; their touch and ability to beat players symbolised the foreign influx of talent into the Premier League.

More recent memories involve both promotions from League 1 – particularly the 2011/12 season when we pipped the pigs (Sheffield United) to the post and won automatic promotion.

TEAMtalk: Who have been your biggest heroes during your time supporting the club?

Joe: Chris Waddle – although he came to Hillsborough towards the end of his career he still oozed class (see SWFC 5 – 0 WHUFC. A.k.a ‘The Waddle Game’).


The 00s were pretty barren in terms of quality but I have to give both Chris Brunt and Glenn Wealen mentions who’ve since gone on to have long spells in the top tier. Although Fernando Forestieri is the most talented player we’ve seen in 20 years, it’s Kieren Lee for me. He makes our current team tick and always gives an 8/10 performance.

TEAMtalk: What do you make of the current team? What are your hopes for the season?

fernando forestieri sheffield wednesday 2

Joe: The last 6 months have been incredibly frustrating. We’ve got one of the most talented teams in the division but football isn’t played on paper (as my dad used to say). However, the Championship is arguably at its most competitive and it’s a long season where anyone can beat anyone. Ask me again at Christmas. (TEAMtalk -we will!)

TEAMtalk: Everyone has a soft spot for another team. Who’s yours and why?

Joe: I got a Real Betis shirt when I was about 16 and have always looked out for them ever since. I think it was all those Denilson step overs. My grandad was from Glasgow so I have a natural soft spot for Celtic and, like loads of other fans, admire the way Tottenham play.

TEAMtalk: What’s going on with the band/for you as an artist at the moment?

Joe: We’ve just released our third record and are all set to go on tour in the UK and Europe. We play Leicester, London, Manchester, Glasgow, Leeds and Newcastle in November.

Paper Talk: Man Utd to bid for Benfica duo; Ozil sure of summer move

Manchester United are ready to make a move for two Benfica players, while Mesut Ozil is convinced he will be joining another Premier League club next summer, according to Friday’s papers.


Manchester United scouts were reportedly impressed by Benfica wonderkid Umaro Embalo during the UEFA Youth League clash between the sides on Wednesday and could also make a move for his team-mate Joao Felix.

Embalo came on in the second half of the game against United’s youngsters, while Felix played 78 minutes before being replaced, but both did enough to suggest that they could move to Old Trafford in the summer, according to The Sun.

The Red Devils were in Portugal on Wednesday night to take on the Portuguese giants in the Champions League, coming away with a 1-0 win thanks to Marcus Rashford.

Earlier in the day, United’s chief scout, Javier Ribalta, was amongst the crowd watching the 17-year-old Embalo, who can play as a winger or striker, and Felix.

United could have a battle on their hands to land Embalo, however, with Real Madrid also said to be monitoring the player.

PL reveals Festive fixture list as Christmas Eve match is ruled out

Premier League clubs have successfully fought off Sky TV’s plans to stage fixtures on Christmas Eve.

December 24 falls on a Sunday this year and there had been speculation matches could be played on that date, with Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea among the clubs strongly voicing their protestations against this.

However, in announcing the broadcast selections for the Christmas period, the Premier League said there would be no games on December 24.

A Premier League statement read: “There will be no Premier League fixtures on Sunday, December 24.

“Four matches have been selected for live UK coverage that weekend, with three to be televised on Saturday, December 23.”

Arsenal’s match with Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium will take place on Friday, December 22.

Everton v Chelsea, Burnley v Tottenham and Leicester against Manchester United will all be televised on Saturday, December 23, the latter with a 1945GMT kick-off.

The Premier League matches selected for broadcast by Sky Sports and BT Sport announced on Thursday were for the period from December 2 to 28, covering six rounds of matches. Twenty four fixtures were selected for live coverage in the UK.

The Premier League insisted supporters’ feelings on festive fixtures were taken into account to reduce travel times for traditional Boxing Day and New Year’s Day games.

Premier League executive chairman Richard Scudamore said: “We appreciate this is the peak time for supporters attending and watching the Premier League.

“With matches scheduled on Christmas weekend for the first time in 11 years, the process of selecting games for live broadcast has been a more complex one than usual and I would like to thank our broadcast partners and clubs for their co-operation and flexibility.

“When selecting matches, the broadcasters are using the rights that we the Premier League and the clubs have sold them, and they should therefore not be criticised for doing so.”

Two matches were selected for live broadcast on Boxing Day: Tottenham v Southampton at 1230GMT and Liverpool v Swansea at 1730GMT. All other games that day kick-off at 1500GMT, while Newcastle v Manchester City has been switched to 1945GMT on December 27 and Crystal Palace v Arsenal to 2000GMT on December 28.

The broadcast selections for the final round of December fixtures and the month of January will be announced “no later” than October 27, the Premier League said.

Paper Talk: Monaco left-back a Man Utd target; Palace up striker hunt

Manchester United, Arsenal and Everton are all monitoring a left-back currently on loan at Wolves, while Newcastle and Stoke are tracking a young French striker, according to Thursday’s papers.


Everton, Arsenal and Manchester United are all reportedly monitoring Monaco left-back Ruben Vinagre.

The 18-year-old has been impressing while on loan at Championship side Wolves and that has alerted some of the Premier League’s top sides, according to the report in The Daily Mail.

United boss Jose Mourinho is said to be keen on bringing a new left-back to the club, while Arsenal and Everton are both looking to freshen up that position with young talent.

Indeed, the Gunners are said to have been watching Vinagre since the Under 17s European Championships in 2016, while Toffees boss Ronald Koeman wants a long-term successor to Leighton Baines.

All three top-flight clubs are being tipped to make enquiries in January, particularly if Vinagre continues his current rate of progress at Molineux.
