  1. I have been fiercely critical of the chairman in recent times but would like to thank him. At least we have a manager who has been in the English game and knows what he is doing. I just hope he takes charge of the recruitment and we bring in players who we need, not just look good. I honestly though we would have seen lights out at Hillsborough before we would have seen this. The future will hopefully be very bright.
  2. I don't agree with they are professional footballers, so they should just get on with it. If you have spent 10 years making a career out of being a software developer and suddenly your manager makes you be a Graphics Designer, how would you feel? You would try your best but you probably wouldn't be at your best. You also wouldn't be in your comfort zone or be very happy. Footballers are humans. If you are treat appallingly then they are going to feel it.
  3. Already way ahead of you. I haven't spent a single penny at the club since 2017 play off semi final and will not spend a penny more until he goes. He has shown complete contempt towards our supporters.
  4. I'd be delighted with the above. I would probably even buy a season ticket next year if he admitted to the above. However I have little faith he is going to say anything like that. I believe he is that out of touch with reality that he will probably blame the fans. Saying we need to pay more to attract better players. We shall see but I won't hold my breath.
  5. How dare he share my birthday as well. For me he will always be a Wednesday legend and I don't think he can be blamed for what happened.
  6. Maybe it's not Jos trying to get the sack, maybe it's Chansiri trying to get relegation? Just a thought I have had. What if there are relegation release clauses in all of the players contracts? If they were to reduce the players wage by x% then that would save a bit and maybe force the high earners on? It's pure speculation of course and only my opinion.
  7. I'm not an apologist but I think changing the manager at this time is futile. I think a new manager is needed and a better manager would have us in a better position than where we are. However I have zero confidence that the club would appoint the required calibre needed of a manager. We would probably get San Marino's manager from Serie D in Italy or somewhere like that. We have no chance of appointing someone decent. I also think the club has got bigger things to worry about. FFP and financial annihilation. We cannot go on losing the amount of money we are doing. They have had all of the season ticket money up front and I don't see where they are going to get anymore cash from. Worrying times and I am genuinely concerned whether there will be a football club in 2 to 3 years time.
  8. And people still defend him. Unbelievable. What worries me is when fans start to vote with their feet and refuse to pay the ridiculous prices. The only ones there will be the multi season St holders. Wednesday will have already spent their money. So where will the cash come from?
  9. What baffles me is why we are still buying into it all? Or is it when more fans take a stance and don't pay the extortionate money for a St when the real stuff starts to hit the fan?
  10. Backs up my stance of not buying a season ticket. I just can't stomach paying the money only for it to be wasted and peed up a wall. I genuinely worry about the future of our club. We have all those people who have 3, 4 and 5 year season tickets and what happens when that money isn't coming in?
  11. I disagree. no one player is bigger than the club. if players don't want to play here then get rid.plenty of successful clubs sell players on when their use has come to an end. Alex Ferguson was good at it. we have an embarrassing set of riches up front who have either not had the desire or have been injury prone. we are seeing first hand what it is like to have a set of players who have desire to win but also a desire to improve as players.
  12. Then who's idea was it to put the players on greatly inflated wages far above market rate so other clubs couldn't afford them?
  13. if we can afford him then why not sell him?
  14. Its not like that and you know it. It's about not putting this club in financial trouble by loading the club with expensive players. It's about not buying players just for the sake of it and then not playing them (Boyd anyone) It's about not paying the players so far above market value that they won't want to leave because we can't sell them. It's about not wanting to sell players. For some crazy reason, one of the best keepers in the league isn't wanted or frozen out by the manager. Fine but sell him and get him off the books. Recoup some money back. When you have bought loads of players, put the club near the brink of being under an embargo and you are still so far away from a good side and still need a few players; it is not good management, some would say its gross negligence.
  15. Will we be trying to sell them or just go on a free at the end of their contract. We all know that Mr Chansiri doesn't like to sell players but I would like to think we would attempt to recover some of the fees.
