  1. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. As soon as Chansiri took over, long term foundations should have been laid to show his intentions. The ground, drastically improved or better still move away from Hillsborough. Investment in the youth set up. The club hasn’t moved with the times and the experience is the same as the first match I attended in 1996 v Liverpool but with a few thousand less at the ground.
  2. That is an absolutely cracking post.
  3. It’s a Mike Ashley special. Like those puma t shirts when you walk in sports direct £10 each or 2 for £25. Its a trick
  4. The loan to buy deal (apparently) on offer upon promotion is not something I’d back. He’s approaching 30 and £20 million is a hell of a lot for a player who hasn’t proved himself in the top flight. Mike Ashley isn’t daft and is dangling the carrot, sprinkling glitter on a poo deal hoping to offload a striker that they don’t have use for anymore. He’s a £10 million player now, a £7.5 million player in the summer.
  5. I signed up to sky sports with the main reason being showing midweek games on the red button. I was under the impression every midweek game would be shown. So far since the beginning of November I’ve seen a 1-0 win over Bolton and a 0-0 draw with Millwall. Cracking value
  6. Tell a lie. It was the same game and it was a women with 4 kids sat directly behind me with the scarf trying to hide it. She dissapeared at at half time and we thought she was the blokes missus. i also ran into the pitch and asked joleon lescott for his shirt at the end of the game......... he said no as he needed it for the play offs
  7. That was around the time I had a season ticket, on the left hand side of the kop. If memory serves, he sat down and had an orange wolves coloured scarf on so immediately brought attention to himself and started dancing/celebrating when they scored. He looked a right scruffy oldish bloke Im sure he had about 4 kids with him, maybe mistaken. There was another on the kop just behind us, not at wolves game. too long ago now
  8. The club is rotten to the core. There was/is a gap in the market to become a good footballing side and marketable club in a fairly large city that is Sheffield, DC could have capitalised on this but hasn’t. The ground needs major redevelopment to bring it into the 21st century, not quite knock it down and start again but still looks a mess inside and out. The badge change was a big mistake, we had a very modern, simple design with a few tweaks could have been an instantly recognisable brand, we’ve ended up with something that looks awful. While a nod to the past in the 150th year is a nice gesture, re-branding the face of the club was a humongous mistake. The advertising is a shambles, a complete and utter shambles. Chansiri, D Taxis and Elev8 plastered everywhere around the club does not look professional, it doesn’t send out the right message to other potential business’s. I won’t go into pricing because we all know everything from tickets to player/match day and pitchside sponsorship is extortionate. The whole thing stinks of cheap and tacky. The whole club needed rejuvenating from top to bottom, not patching up. The fans aren’t proud of this club, I’m not proud of this club.
  9. I don’t think any channel has really capitalised on champ/L1/L2 football. The BBC didn’t do a bad job, but 11:30pm on a sat night is too late. Channel 5 was cringey and tried too hard. This Quest thing will just die a slow death. Something on the BBC on a Sunday afternoon or even better a Monday night (around 7/8pm with the full round up pressed into 40 minutes would be bang on and draw more interest.
  10. Disagree there. We had bad players who played their hearts out and gave everything, just weren’t good enough. Now we have decent (supposedly) players who do quite the opposite
  11. I agree Stubborn & Inexperience Not naivety
  12. To be honest mate I will give every change Chansiri makes a chance. The CEO and new manager included. You cannot defend the way he has wasted money on near every aspect from player recruitment to commercial side of the club on “Ill advise” He signs the cheques
  13. He’s had 3 years at the helm. We are past naive. No one was complaining in the first season because we simply hadn’t made the endless blunders which he has now. He takes the credit when things go well and he gets things right, he also has to take the flack when things go wrong. The money invested in the long term future of the club probably equates to 6 months of Urbys wages. Not counting the pitch and scoreboard which I give him full credit for. The commercial and marketing side of the club I would say is in a worse state than the MM era. He has has wasted an absolute fortune, a ridiculous amount of money. The re-branding of the club, shirts and tat on offer, traditions and annerversaries, players in and lack of out. Contracts and wages. The last 2 years off the pitch have been a complete embarrassment. I’m prepared to give every idea and change a chance but these failings are now becoming a regular fixture
  14. On the commercial, marketing, and player recruitment side of things he has been incompetent. Naive would be kind. The money wasted on that obliterates any long term spending plans.
  15. People are getting mixed up with investing and spending. He has spent a lot for short term success He hasn’t invested much in long term apart from the pitch and scoreboard. Where has money been spent (including players) where we might turn around in 5 years and see the benefits? The proper foundations haven’t been laid to compete properly in the Premiership.
