  1. I’ll start with Adam Reach, by far the most over rated player in the Wednesday squad. Offers nothing. Scored a few screamers which, as has happened since he came here, most attempts end up in row Z or the corner flag. No pace, can’t skin a man, first touch atrocious and hasn’t the ability to change a game. If we got our 5 mil back, I’d snap which ever puddins hand off that could only be arsed to watch You Tube goals
  2. Hopefully with a smaller deal they'll cut the pi$$in parachute payments!!!
  3. Absolutely spot on..Fox and Palmer are not Championship standard. The amount of times I shouted at my iPad because both of them couldn't beat the first man with a cross. Running into space and as soon as an opposition player goes near them, they turn around and go backwards. For me these two are one needed for immediate replacement and are the key positions to strengthen.
  4. Yeah exactly...it's just trying to find land that isn't green belt and big enough
  5. No mate, it's separate...so realistically he could spend millions on this and it wouldn't affect us for FFP
  6. This is Derbys training facilities and academy. It's huge and state of the art. This is im sure what Chansiri has in mind for us, or should be if he's serious about us being a premier league team. Both Middlewood Road and Niagra together would still be no where near big enough. I'm sure if a multi million pound investment was proposed by Chansiri, he would have to work with the Council to find appropriate land. On a side note, I'm pretty sure Niagra is owned by SYP sports and social club - so by paying police members and not SYP itself.
  7. Shhhhhh then...we don't want FFP Hitler's finding out!!
  8. Agreed. That was of of the points I was raising...could the below par training facilities have had a bearing on our injury list?...I'd be interested to hear why we have to wait until promotion for a vast improvement in this area?...the only thing I can think of, is he plans to move the training ground to a purpose built site somewhere else, otherwise, if the Premier League is where he wants is, it'd be a no brainer to start now?
  9. FFP is grossly unfair for clubs not in receipt of parachute payments. As seen by the likes of Villa and even Sunderland, that £40 million per year for three years (I know it reduces from £40 in year 2 and 3) is re invested in big players on big wages and not used to prop them up on their existing players wages from the premier league as it was intended. This gives those 6-9 clubs a huge financial head start over teams like Wednesday who've been in the Championship for a number of years. Clubs in receipt of parachute payments should ONLY be allowed to spend that money on existing wages and new transfers should have to be from matchday/merchandise/sponsorship money they generate. I get his comments about transfer fees spread over the length of their contract, but surely with players like Wallaceon a free, their £30 grand a week plus wages if they were released would save us millions in wages? If we don't get penalised by FFP for infrastructure, such as training facilities (which Wednesdays are well known to be poor for this level) why have we not seen a huge input in cash to develop this area and attract better young players...a bit like Derbys excellent facilities? I personally love DC and think without him we'd be screwed, but if PSG can pay nearly £400 million for 2 players and not fall foul of FPP, surely there must be some way around our current financial situation?
  10. Exactly...wish the guy well, but his ideas stagnated and the chairman gave him plenty of time for him to recognise it and change. Ultimately the most devisive manager we've had in recent times and the club was starting to become toxic as a result. If he has 'mutually agreed' to leave then I'm glad he recognised that for the good of Wednesday, he could no longer be in charge...just wish he'd have done it 2 months ago when we still could have got in the play offs!!
