  1. I don’t think all players will get a club. You seemed to suggest that we can basically name our price with out of contract players though. The point I’m making is that in reality we won’t be able to do that because other clubs will likely be in for these players. Of course there will be players who don’t get a club and we could name our price. But, and it’s a big but - clearly no one wants these players so why would we? I actually think when a player is out of contract, clubs often pay them more and/or pay a signing on bonus because they have saved on the transfer fee. Time will tell but this may not happen this year given the current climate.
  2. That is what free agent means yes. You are also correct that if we are the only option we can name the price. However, if we are the only option I’d be asking why no other team wants them. Anyone worth signing on a free transfer will have plenty of options and 9 times out of 10 the player will go to the highest bidder.
  3. What do you expect him to say? If he says in a press conference it’s a meaningless game it gives the players a license to not put a shift in (queue the jokes they don’t anyway). Do you really believe that he hasn’t got a plan in place with regards to who he wants to stay at the club and potential targets? There will be a lot of work going on behind the scenes. I suspect we have a list of targets drawn up whether that’s down to Monk, the recruitment team or a combination of both. I think it’s pretty clear those out of contract know where they stand too. For example those on short term deals I’m 99% sure will be leaving the club, otherwise they would have just signed a 1 year extension when Pelupessy, Penney etc. did.
  4. Why have you excluded penalties? Rhodes refuses to take them so think it would be appropriate to include
  5. Nice first post. Absolutely not Peter the blade...
  6. We’re missing 18 players like Semedo. He’d run through a brick wall for Wednesday. In response to a few saying he was a limited player - aren’t this lot?
  7. Who has called them criminals? I certainly haven’t. Leeds (and every club in the country) have a set of rules which try to prevent fans from going on the pitch. They hire a team of stewards to enforce those rules. No one is calling for criminal charges and I suspect the lad got kicked out and that was the end of it.
  8. When you say ‘load of boll0cks’ you might want to read my post again. I agree there is a difference between what the Leeds and Birmingham fans did and what the lad did yesterday and as I said I don’t think for one minute he would have gone and punched a Leeds player. Stewards can’t take chances though and nor should they.
  9. Do you remember when that idiot from Leeds ran on the pitch and punched Kirkland in the face? And the idiot from Birmingham who punched grealish last season. Those two examples are the exact reason people get chucked out, because it may compromise a players safety/wellbeing. I’m not saying the lad you refer to would have gone and punched a player but the stewards are there to protect the players from idiots and they shouldn’t take any chances. It’s quite simple just don’t go on the pitch. Do what the other 3,000 Wednesday fans did and celebrate in your seat. Going on the pitch to celebrate doesn’t make you any more passionate. It does make you more of an idiot though.
  10. Yes but the EFLs terms and conditions are based on audited pre tax profit. I don’t know what’s so difficult to understand for you.
  11. Funnily enough that’s also a requirement for the auditors (the transaction at fair value). Take it from someone who actually knows what they’re talking about. I’m sure you will have seen the article on the BBC tonight. As I predicted in an earlier post Wednesday are going to sue the EFL for an unlawful charge. I will repeat again. The EFL cannot make Sheffield Wednesday restate their accounts. They must take them at face value. They’ve bitten off more than they can chew here and have picked the wrong guy to have a fight with.
  12. Yes I remember that, but I think it’s a completely different situation. Suspending someone for a few games is not going to dramatically change the outcome of a season. Docking points where there are no grounds for doing so brings the integrity of the competition in to question. Like I said previously this could all get very ugly for the EFL if we are not made to change our accounts.
  13. Some of the comments on here such as fraud and fudging the accounts are an overreaction and quite frankly ridiculous and could land one or two in bother. I’d urge anyone to be careful in making such comments. No denying that we have been reckless in our spending and we shouldn’t have to sell the ground to maintain compliance with FFP. However, it is a loophole and there’s nothing to say we can’t do it and according to the auditors it’s in the correct financial period at an appropriate value.
  14. I’m a chartered accountant and trained in audit. As far as I’m concerned until someone makes Sheffield Wednesday restate their accounts, which the EFL cannot do, there is no case to answer.
