  2. From Castleton originally so I'm beyond Hope really!
  3. Dear Mr Chansiri I am 30 years old and have followed Sheffield Wednesday since a young boy, and am now in my 20th year of being a season ticket holder, and watch Sheffield Wednesday every week home and away. I have followed the club thorough some of the worst periods in the clubs history and am excited by the potential of what can be achieved with you at the helm. Thank you for the opportunity of inviting questions from fans. However, I, like many fans, feel that there are some current policies/strategies/issues that are holding the club back and in light of your invitation, I would therefore like you to answer the following questions: Who supports you as Chairman with the footballing knowledge needed to run a football club, in respect of recruitment and who is currently available in the market place; the value of a particular player; contract negotiation etc. in place of the advisory committee which previously existed in 2015? I am concerned that our transfer policy over the last 2 years has lacked a clear strategic direction which has resulted in a lot of last minute recruitment in areas of the squad that we do not need, and failing to address areas of the squad which are in obvious need of strengthening, paying inflated transfer fees and reportedly crippling wages. Are you satisfied with the quality regarding the commercial and corporate side of the football club and what work is being done to improve it? I am sure I am not alone in saying that the current merchandise on offer in the Megastore is overpriced and very poor in quality. A good example of this being the 150th Anniversary Dream Scene; 150 pounds for a picture which has errors in the labelling of players, and I believe a poor design around the edge. The issues of the kit have been well documented and i won't go into this any further. However that leads me on to my next question... Given the problems associated with our kit supplier during the summer, have suitable contracts been agreed now for next seasons kit launch to avoid these problems happening again? I am fortunate in that I can afford to pay up front for a season ticket and watch football for a reasonable price. The people of Sheffield are on much lower wages as an average that the people of other northern cities such as Manchester of Leeds. There is an even greater disparity between the average wage of Sheffield and London. When considering your pricing structure for both match day tickets, club merchandise, and corporate hospitality, have you carried out any assessment of what the average Sheffield Wednesday fan earns? Other football clubs around the country have offered free travel to fans for long distance away games, especially for mid week games, such as our game at Ipswich in November which is also on SKY. Have you ever considered subsiding coach travel for fans who attend these games mid-week who often sacrifice hours at work to support the club? Thank you for taking inviting the opportunity for asking these questions and I look forward to your answers. Regards
  4. 1. Taking into account the poor quality of the opposition; the lack of movement and desire to get forward; and the fact that a reaction was required no. It was the same apethic performance with slightly less errors 2. Marginal decision, thought it was but view from behind the goal makes it unclear. Hooper (and Joao when he came on) were OK 3. We'll never know but could have got some confidence to start hitting the target and potentially get a second 4. No. In my view if you don't score you can't complain about loosing 5. They had fight and pace but were a poor side. Missed two guilt edge chances before they scored 6. No clear cut chances bar the disallowed goal and a decent strike from Reach in the second half which got tipped over 7. No they didn't park the bus they wanted to win the game, just lacking quality as we were
  5. Which areas are Wednesday

    For what its worth ide say the Hope Valley is 60-40 in Wednesdays favour
  6. That was a decent performance today. Hooper, Reach, Hunt, Ban Aken, in fact the whole 11 were solid. Dictated the play for large spells, just so frustrating we cant land the knock out punch to kill the game. Would have happily taken 1-1 before a ball was kicked but obviously feels like a defeat. Lets dust ourselves down and get up for the scrubbers next week UTO
  7. The Home Sheffield Derbies And You.
