  1. 16/17 there was as I said. This season there’ll be around 21k season tickets. We’ll have made virtually zero ticket POTG money against Charlton. Even on Saturday, we’ve sold around 4k POTG tickets so that’ll be about 100k in total revenue from ticket sales we’ve made from the last two home games? I can’t see where you’ve got a 60% increase in match day revenue from
  2. We’ve not increased matchday revenue anywhere near 60%. It will have been better in the season 2016/17 but in the last 3 seasons (apart from the away fans) there is barely any POTGers at most games
  3. A lot of the damage has been done now. I’ll be surprised if crowds start going up again while DC is still at the club
  4. Is there any chance the EFL could disqualify Chansiri under the Owners and Directors test as they did with Cellino at Leeds? Would that be a good outcome for us now?
  5. If we need to wait for one of those it could be a few years
  6. I was replying to a post that said being a Wednesdayite is unconditional. Is that not binary?
  7. The black line has virtually flat lined since match 23 and could be about to take a nose dive from the EFL
  8. The club underestimated the level of discontentment among the fan base when putting the tickets on sale for this one. DC probably thought it would sell like the Arsenal game did 4 years ago. We should have given City two ends to get the crowd above 20k
  9. We have the North, South and kop as usual. City have sold their allocation of 4,499 in the west stand. Looks like the crowd will be around 16,000 unless we sell a few more between now and Wednesday
  10. Against the premier league champions and one of the best sides in Europe? When?
  11. Man City have won 6-1 away at Villa, 5-0 away at West Ham, 4-1 away at Burnley and 3-0 away at Arsenal this season. They’ve also beaten Watford 8-0 at home. Getting hammered by Man City isn’t that embarrassing, it happens to a lot of premier league clubs. But only selling 11,000 tickets in the home end is
  12. Pretty sure City have only been given 4,499 https://www.mancity.com/news/tickets-and-travel/tickets-and-travel/2020/february/sheff-wed-v-man-city-ticket-information and they’ve sold them out https://www.mancity.com/news/mens/sheffield-wednesday-v-man-city-sold-out-63717902
  13. There’s only been one other year in the last 40 seasons when we’ve been in the top two leagues and haven’t had a crowd above 28k all season. That means there’s thousands of fans who in previous seasons have gone to Hillsborough at least once who haven’t been at all this season. And it’s being shown in the sales for the City game. I don’t know when the next time will be that we get a crowd above 28k. Will it happen with Chansiri in charge?
  14. Blackburn and Derby have scored more goals in the first 45 minutes at Hillsborough than Wednesday have under Garry Monk. That’s some stat
  15. If the result yesterday was solely down to Lees starting ahead of Iorfa, can you explain the 0-5 against Blackburn and the 0-3 against Reading when Iorfa started and Lees was on the bench? What players do we have left in the squad that are actually worth money? If the entire squad was put up for sale in the summer, how much do you think we’d raise? Monk and Tom Lees are not to blame for the recruitment, lack of player sales and the contract situation. We only have 8 or 9 outfield players currently contracted to the club for next season. Does that tell you something is wrong above Garry Monk?
  16. We’ve scored 4 goals in the first half at Hillsborough this season in 19 games. Those goals are Murphy against Barnsley, Fletcher against QPR, Luongo against Stoke and Lees against Cardiff. Blackburn and Derby have both scored 3 at Hillsborough in one first half. It’s taken us 19 first half’s to score 4 in total. Does anyone know what the record is for the lowest goals at home in the first half all season?
  17. If Dawson is in goal and we get promoted I will say he is a premier league quality keeper. Based on the results we’ve had, the mistakes he’s made and the goals we’ve conceded he’s a long way short of that
  18. Stats can sometimes be misleading but in this case I don’t think they are. Westwood is one of the best keepers in Wednesday’s history and Dawson isn’t a very good goalkeeper. I hope he goes on to prove me wrong but I’ll be surprised if Dawson plays for another club in the top two divisions of English football
  19. Who’s emotionally attached to them? I’ve no emotional attachment to this group of players. DC just doesn’t sell them
  20. Any team can get drubbed by Man City. It’s the size of the crowd that could be humiliating
  21. If you want to blame Monk and Lees instead of DC I’d say you’re deluded
  22. You can be a Wednesdayite without being a Chansirite. Geniunely don’t know how bad it has to get until the Chansirites like yourself realise the damage he’s doing to our club
  23. What’s he attacking his character for? Does he know him? I don’t care that much either, just thought it was a bit strange to say this... ‘he's a total bell, no class, everything that's wrong with football and an absolute weapon’ about a footballer who’s probably achieved more than any English footballer since 1966
