    I dont feel sorry for him at all for this.
    Stood to double his money if we got promoted v Hull that time, that was the risk he took. 

    Why would he double his money ?? Did he say he was selling if we went up. Even if he doubled his money now it wouldn't cover his investment. The only chairman in 25 years to try to compete and he gets slaughtered on here. He has made some big mistakes but he hasnt left and is still pumping money in.

    Are we unhooking the rope from round his neck?


    We’re not out of trouble just yet of course - but that statement, which is very cleverly written and I assume is by his legal team, seems to indicate we have followed and danced around what the EFL have requested us to do - and been punished by a new regime coming in looking to make a mark after bending over to pressure from other chairman in the league.


    Does it matter we have evidence? Will we just be shafted anyway? Who knows. Someone, has got it in for us. And yes - we can all look in hindsight and say we deserve this, of course we do, but we can’t turn back time we can only look forward now and see what we are going to do about it.


    Chansiri has yet again, invested heavily to sort this out - (problem is of his own accord, we know) - but it’s another big investment he’s put into this club to keep us in touch of where we want to go. I hope for his sake, this pulls through in SWFC favour and those who want to hound him out will take a step back and admit their wrongdoing. He’s making the right steps in the last year - Bruce, Monk, Backroom Staff, Signings have been a marked improvement and one is being eyed for a big money move - he’s learning, he still needs to keep learning - but it’s heading in the right direction.


    Plus I love we’ve come out fighting - if we’ve followed the letter of the law, then they’ve picked the wrong chairman. 

    Forward we go UTO

    DC has always given his all for this club. The only problem with that is it has landed in trouble with FFP. Those who slate him should actually think how much of his own money he has sunk into the club. Whatever happens we will still be here and no EFL commitee can take that away from us.

    A bit off topic but does anyone know if we are umbongoed given the EFL charges? Or do we plough on regardless with two fingers up at Gibson as we go??

    Way Boro are going we wont be in the same league next year and Gibson can argue with the likes of Rovrum and Donny.

    Hopefully by the end of the season we will have beaten every team at least once and they all will be below us. We need to make Hillsborough a fortress and away pick up draws and wins when we can. This division is not predictable in any way. A loss can quickly set in a bad run. 3 wins on the bounce and things can totally change in a week. Monk knows what needed. Surely i can't be in the minority of people who think that the teams this season are all capable of beating each other with no real exceptional stand out nailed on champions. Wednesday are capable of taking advantage and making most this season without major changes. An automatic promotion slot is a real possibility. The best chance we will have for years. Between now and Xmas we will need to get tight in defence and a good run will put us in a hell of a good position to build a final push. No team in this division can outclass us. The championship will be won with a low points total. 8 teams could all finish in the top 8 with just 5 points separating 1st to 8th. 

    Think Leeds and West Brom will go up automatically they both look a bit infront of the rest in quality and squads. Would agree the playoffs are there for the taking with around 10 sides in the mix. If we can aquire an inform pacey goalscorer then we can definitely be in the mix. That is of course with no EFL imposed sanction.

  5. The points deduction if found guilty could be applied anytime think Birminghams was February last year. What does worry me though is there does seem to be an anti Monk undercurrent brewing on here even though he seems to be doing a decent job. Even threads comparing him to Jos. Time people got behind the team and the manager.

    Keep hearing this give him a couple of transfer windows, does anyone understand the mess we are in right now?  Fans on here seem to think we can just rip the squad apart and start again, what with and how under these restrictions and sanctions to come? 

    he’s going. To have to get the best out of what we have and evidence so far isn’t pointing to positive outcomes 

    Top half of the ieague with a squad that has barely changed over the last couple of years and lacks an out and out goal scorer.  Think he isnt doing a bad job. Monk is his own man and I believe he will get us in or around the playoffs this year. No team has embarrassed us all season and given a bit of luck we could have been 7 or 8 points better off.

    Maybe our scouting staff should shadow those at Peterborough as they always seem to unearth some gems in the striking department. Our scouts must be learning how to build a den.

    There, I've said it. 


    Far far far too pedestrian, backwards negative football. No movement on the odd occasions we do venture forward, and wrong formation is isolating the only decent striker we have. 


    Very very poor. I give it 12 months tops. 

    Head straight to A and E and ask for your medication. You should never let it run out. :ph34r:

    Only scored more than 1 goal against Swansea yet starts 1 upfront and only has Niuhu on bench, where's Rhodes and Winnall?


    FF not starting doesn't take alot to notice so why is Monk not seeing it or is it because there's something we don't know regards to finance or whatever? or is Chansiri picking the team?

    Seriously think DC picking the team ?? Or is it just a stupid ill thought out snipe ? We have played well the last couple of games. Think most people on here realise we need a pacey fox in the box. Rhodes, Winnall and FF are not the answer and they arent Monks signings.

    Over Waddle? Not for me, but it is arguable


    Sadly it's not a debate we are likely to have at that level again. There was an elegance to Waddle, in the manner of David Gower or Roger Federer, which will always make him my choice. 

    Waddle world class proven at international level. Di Canio talented but not at the same level. Not through lack of talent but more self indulgent attitude. Would always put Waddle above him. Plus Waddle had genuine feelings towards the club and fans Di Canio kissed the badge but loved himself.

    How though...Do you sell summat  to someone who doesn't exist?

    I mean thats not an existential argument...I'm just interested...

    There is surely just the one party involved, doing the transaction, with ...Themselves???

    It must be fraudulent...I mean the paperwork, there must be "some" paperwork from the non existent party?

    But how can there be...They don't exist???

    (Takes a drink of lager)

    Now this non existent party who we can call ..................Harry..

    agrees to buy the ground offa Delphjon....who is also called Harry, on account of both parties being the same f.ookin' person

    (Takes another drink)

    Now can Harry carry (Hari f.ookin' Kari)...on with the conveyancing and such...You need a legal team, 

    So the legal team say to Harry

    "you Harry are selling the ground to Harry, who's address and name are the same as yours...err...Harry, and funnily enough the bank transfer is going from an account to the same account..How do you and Harry err...(Takes a drink) umm account for this...

    I mean you can'y Harry carry on with it can you?

    What in the name of f.ook are the legal team doin'???

    Carry on harry?

    Maybe it was Harrys dog. Oh hold on that was a different owner .

    Considering todays news, I cant see any new faces arriving at Hillsborough for perhaps some considerable time.

    Sadly this may well be the fact of the matter. I wont be holding my breath in January about signings with this hanging over us.

    Sure you would. I'm absolutely sure you would rather be facing being plunged into the bottom 3 of the champ instead of 5th from top in the prem :tango:

    You obviously are steeped in Blades culture thinking its good to borrow money from a family who have had at least 7 members of it charged with terrorism. Many of which involved British troops and citizens. Slither back to the sewer your stinking the place out.

    Just to be clear, Sheffield United were never under an embargo, you made that one up. 


    We had a cash flow problem which of ot wasnt fixed, we would potentially have been under embargo. But we fixed it. Without selling our stadium to ourselves then fudging the books. 


    Good luck with this one.

    Oh was that when you brought the Bin Ladens in ?? Think I would rather be under embargo than go that low.

    Delphjon "What did you do Guido?"

    "I tried to blow up the houses of Parliament.....You?

    " I took over Sheffield Wednesday"

    Guido.."Are you f.ookin' mad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    Well uncle Milan told me it was a good deal and his mate Harry Redknapp said it couldn't go wrong.

    You've been posting long enough to realise that at any given moment,this place goes full on meltdown over trivial shyte,this thread is gunna be huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge.

    Hardly trivial this one though is it ??

  18. So Villa and Derby get no sanction/investigation but we go in front of the EFLs FFP breach panel . Sheffield United admit they were secretly under embargo but somehow still brought players in no investigation. Whatever this club does at present we seem to cover ourselves in the brown smelly stuff. I don't blame DC as I wasn't moaning when we were in the playoffs and looking likely to go up.(how that Huddersfield result comes back to haunt us ). The irony is for the first time in 25 years we have an owner willing to spend money but isn't allowed to. It is blatantly obvious the FFP rules don't work as the majority of teams in the Championship are deep in debt but it would seem some are better at disguising this than us. Im sure we will get over this in time but the worry is who would buy us if DC walked.

    I'd take Ed the Duck being in charge if it meant us winning the league!!


    Well weve got the Eton headless chicken in charge of country now. So Ed the Duck would be a step up. As for winning the league id take winning the playoffs.
