  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. I agree Stubborn & Inexperience Not naivety
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. With sell on clauses and how bigger teams pay big bucks for the next best thing it’s a revenue stream we should be investing in. Its Charltons choice what they do with decent prospects, they recently got £11 million for Lookman. im not grumbling at how much has been invested, just where it’s been spent.
  13. I’ll throw my negative comment in here as well: Whilst I appreciate most things DC has done, the fans have not been treat with the respect they deserve. I hoped when he came in the club would be stripped back and rejuvenated into a a club that could emulate the likes of Stoke, Southampton with mid table Premiership ambitions. Traditions of the club have been dismissed, I appreciate we use to play in solid blue, but from what I gather fans prefer and identified better with stripes. I don’t really care, I don’t buy shirts, but he should. The badge, the old owl we have had for near 20 year was a simplistic and modern design. Most teams now are moving to more simplistic and modern badges. Brentford, Man City, West Ham for marketing and branding purposes. We’ve just sacked ours off when we had a 20 year head start. My point is the identity of the club is being watered down, and I don’t like it. I’m all for change when it’s needed and warranted. Id have rather seen more investment into our academy and youth, some proper money spent on the ground, similar to the World Cup plans. Things that didn’t need changing have been changed. Things that needed changing have been ballsed up.
  14. I said this in the match day thread and I’ll say it again. This ‘dream’ has been built on poor foundations, throw money at it and reap the rewards in the Prem within 2/3 years. It hasn’t worked and now we are left with remains. Things needed to change at Wednesday but the kit and the badge weren’t one of those things. God only knows what will happen next
