  1. The EFL would argue that FFP has worked in that very few clubs have gone into administration since it was introduced compared to the years before. Bury and Bolton this year were the first for quite a while. And it wasn’t the EFL who signed Rhodes, Abdi, van Aken, Jones, Boyd, Urby etc and still kept the likes of McGugan picking up a wage without offloading any players.
  2. Club 1867 is still on sale. Get your 5 year premier league season ticket on the south stand for only £3,200. https://www.swfc.co.uk/news/2019/january/owls-revel-new-strand-of-club-1867/ Does anyone know if we actually sold one of these?
  3. Rhodes scoring a winner is probably the most far fetched part of that post
  4. HMRC were one of the main reasons for the introduction of FFP. Before FFP clubs were going into administration and millions in unpaid tax was having to be written off by HMRC. HMRC isn’t deemed a preferential creditor and has to line up with other non-football creditors to share what’s left in the pot. So the taxman was only being paid 5-10% of what was actually owed when football clubs went into administration. Leeds and Leicester were two of the worst culprits, they both had around £7 million in tax debts but only repaid about 700k.
  5. According to the Maguire / Star article the debt is repayable in instalments of £7.5 million over an 8 year period which (Maguire says) is unusual for a property transaction.
  6. Maybe he’s ignoring you because it has absolutely no relevance to the EFL statement?
  7. The way you say ‘we don’t need you’ and ‘grow a set’, it’s like you’re the one that’s going out on the field for Wednesday. Can you enlighten me what exactly it is that you’re doing that ‘we need’ compared to torres?
  8. And that no money has actually changed hands. Wednesday have in the accounts a debt of £60 million owing from Chansiri’s other company.
  9. For all the money he’s spent and the wages we’ve paid, the odds have never actually been in our favour of getting promoted. If you look at this season as an example, Leeds are currently 2/7 for promotion and West Brom are 1/2. Leeds may choke again but according to the bookies there’s a 78% chance they’ll be promoted and a 67% chance West Brom will be promoted. The bookmakers have never had us odds on for promotion at any point in the last 5 years.
  10. The average wage at Wednesday tripled in Chansiri’s first 3 seasons. And virtually no player sales to cover it.
  11. I don’t think he will but we’ll see. Is there going to be a queue of buyers lined up for a club that’s lost £57 million in 3 years, has an EFL misconduct charge hanging over them and has the issues with the ground and SAG to resolve?
  12. Do you geniunely believe there’s anyone on here who doesn’t want to see us do well? And if so, who are they? Plenty on here saw this coming but were called allsorts by the ‘true fans’. That doesn’t mean anyone is happy to see it
  13. This a very good article from Maguire about Wednesday’s 2017/18 accounts and ground sale... http://priceoffootball.com/sheffield-wednesday-2017-18-when-the-sun-goes-down/ Apologies if it’s already been posted (and it’s a long read) but some of the figures and graphs are eye opening. This one shocked me... we posted losses of £37 million in 2017/18 and there were still 7 clubs in the championship with higher losses than us
  14. Chansiri is more comparable to Peter Ridsdale
  15. Since sacking Jos the club has been run much better (ticket pricing aside). Two good managerial appointments, some shrewd acquisitions and selling Joao for decent money. It’s the two years after the play off final that has put us here.
  16. So let me get this right using your logic.... Sheffield Wednesday have been charged with breaching EFL rules and with misconduct about how and when we sold the ground. A Wednesday fans forum shouldn’t discuss this and ‘people who support the club’ should only say what a great job Chansiri is doing running the club?
  17. It’s the EFL that have said it in their statement: The EFL has reviewed a large number of documents obtained from the Club as part of this process and concluded there is sufficient evidence to justify issuing charges of Misconduct. The charges are in respect of a number of allegations regarding the process of how and when the stadium was sold and the inclusion of the profits in the 2017/18 accounts. Has any club ever successfully appealed an EFL charge?
  18. Isn’t the other issue that we’ve not actually received the proceeds of the sale?
  19. I think most do. Leeds as an example have sold Chris Wood, Ronaldo Viera, Pontus Jansson and Kemar Roofe in the last 3 years to ensure they comply with FFP. And at least Derby got their ground sale in the right financial year. We couldn’t even do that. Name any other clubs that have just ignored FFP? You defend him over everything whether it’s ticket prices or his failed transfer strategy and overspending
  20. Who else is to blame that (without ground sale) we’ve posted losses of £57 million in 3 years?
  21. Complying with the league’s rules would be a start
  22. That list’s nonsense. Factor in we were still a premier league club when we made all those signings. We were one of the top clubs in the country when we signed Sinton and Walker and 3m was about the going rate for an England international then. Rhodes is the biggest outlay Wednesday have made by a distance (even accounting for football inflation) because we didn’t have any premier league money when we signed him. And where’s Jackie Sewell in the list? He was a British record transfer when he came to Wednesday so that must be the equivalent of about £150 million using those calculations.
  23. Sawyers and Livermore being out should give us a good chance in this one. That’s their first choice central midfield and Sawyers has looked class when I’ve seen him this year.
  24. I’ve always thought West Brom to be a decent club and fanbase. They’ve plenty of history... they were one of the founder members of the football league and they’ve spent more seasons playing top flight football than us (81 to 66). And recent history.... There’ll be no one under the age of 25 who remembers last time we finished above them.
