  1. He’s spot on, the whole situation is a shambles. How it will get resolved, I’ve no idea. Money has always been an important factor, but it’s becoming increasingly the most important one. Fine after t he says where a team could be promoted then finish third the following season. The dream is to get to the Premier League, but for what, parking the bus every week, taking frequent batterings and hoping to finish 17th. The saddest thing is I can’t see any solution to make it a reasonable fight, never mind a fair one. The occasional joy of seeing us win on a Satu
  2. 1) Owls v Leicester City, 1991. 0-0. The first game after our League Cup success, aged 8. 2) Chris Waddle. 3) In my lifetime, Chris Waddle. 4) Playoff final, Cardiff. Not necessarily the greatest game I’ve seen, but the one that will live longest in my memory for the whole day, and result. 5) See above. 6) Anfield was special. 7) Chris Waddle, semi-final. Celebrated right in front of us too. 8 ) At Hillsborough Brighton playoff semi. But a special mention for the atmosphere even after we lost the subsequent final at Wembley. Made me proud to be an owl. 9) Roland Ni
  3. He could put plenty more in to the club now if he so wished. There are numerous areas outside of the P&S/FFP rules he can spend on. The academy, training ground and stadium for a start. Slower impact for the club than spending on the first team, but if he’s here for the long haul, then surely he’s got the time to wait for exceptional youths to come through for example.
  4. Always thought we should have Derek Dooley from his playing days, whilst they have one of him in his latter years. No one more Mr Sheffield Football. As for purely us, a Howard Wilkinson one would be appropriate, given his many contributions.
  5. The yes/no isn’t in relation to the question, but if you’re a season ticket holder or not.
  6. Given our financial situation, he’s a reasonable squad player. If he’s a regular starter, then we’re probably not setting our sights high enough, but to be in the squad, I’ve no problems with that.
  7. Given there's roughly 20,000 season tickets at the moment, there will be people with them from all financial circumstances. I think the best option the club can do is offer refunds, whilst also giving fans alternative options, such as tickets to cup games, reductions on future tickets, or even letting the club keep it. Those who are able to take the hit have the option to invest some money in the club, who will be suffering much like any other business. Those who are finding things difficult could get some much needed money back. I can only see this as the best option for
  8. this suspension is as much about the viability of games being played as protecting the fans. If on member of the squad or stead gets it, every member of the squad and staff is at higher risk. Can a team who should be isolating be expected to field as team still. The only option is suspension, the risks to those involved at each club would be just as high if behind closed doors.
  9. So precedent has been set for the league to be abandoned. Sure the war was earlier in the season, but abandonment has happened before. If this gets like as bad as it could do, it’s not going to be back to normal in a few weeks, we’re talking several months at least. Abandonment has to be as very real possibility.
  10. The closest example we have to this would be the outbreak of war. What happened then?
  11. Bit of a no win one for Dom this. Don't ask the challenging questions and he'll get slated. As the challenging questions and Chansiri will more than likely give politicians answers and not actually tell us anything. I just can't see Chansiri answering the types of questions we really want answering.
  12. Given that he himself is facing an EFL misconduct charge, this is very possible. Not sure what happens should it go that way. I can't imagine the EFL have any power to force a sale, he could probably pass ownership to a family member.
