  1. Because the chairman is the reason we should have got a points deduction and have had, for two consecutive seasons, a transfer embargo. If we don’t go up then we will be in the same situation and won’t have a solution. Imagine if this wasn’t Wednesday, what would you be thinking? I know what I’d be thinking, that it’s a recipe for disaster. If United would have sold there ground for £38m and published a £2m profit there’d be a thread on here titled ‘the wheels have fallen off’ within minutes.
  2. I think Barnsley will surprise a few people this season. Like others have said, you never know in this league so we won’t know what games are tough ones until we’re well into the season. That being said on paper you’ve got to be happy with the start. I’d love us to get a good start under our belts, seems like we never do!
  3. I think a lot of Wednesday fans have a soft spot for a trier, that maybe isn’t technically the best - Chris OGrady, Semedo, Lee Bullen etc but we’ve got a lot of strikers and he’s probably the bottom of the bunch, if there’s any offers we’ve got to listen. Personally, though I think it’s the biggest myth going the he ‘always gives his all.’ The amount of times I’ve seen him saunter about, or not jump for headers he could have won. For as much as people say they don’t get the hate for Nuhiu, I don’t get the over support of him, as if he’s some sort of hidden gem. All opinions but he’s a league 1 level striker for me.
  4. Our two biggest problems are: 1) We have a lot of injury prone players 2) We have a lot of players on high wages If anyone of our out of contract players falls into the two category’s I think, unfortunately, it’s time they was moved on. No matter how good players like Hooper, Westwood and Lee are between them they’re likely to miss about a full seasons worth of games. I’d rather have lesser (ideally younger) players, on lessers wages that are more reliable and try to build a solid, hard to beat team.
  5. If you got bored after 4 words then that probably explains your lack of any logic. Again, your points not true. Sales were staggered after membership, 50 points, 30, 20 and then reached people with 10 points, possibly even general sale. So you was guaranteed a ticket if you went to 2 or more games over 2 seasons. If you think the reason people buy a membership is to make sure they'd get a ticket for Wembley, and they'd still do that for £40 more on the back of a bad season with no new signings - then as someone who would have bought a membership had they been £50 - I can tell you, you're wrong
  6. This just isn't true. When we got to Wembley sale reached people with 10 points, that's 1 game over 2 years. My memories a little hazey but there might have even been a very limited number of tickets that reached general sale, you simply needed an ID. A membership will mean you can buy tickets earlier on but to suggest you'd need one to get tickets for Wembley is a nonsense, just as long as you've been to the odd few games over the last two years you're in no danger at all. I was a season ticket holder last year and this season I can't guarantee what I'm doing from one Saturday to the next. I thought £50 was pretty steep but was going to buy one in the hope I'd reach about 10 games. That'd still mean I'd make no saving but it's nice to have that link with the club. It's obvious what Chansiri is doing, he's making a membership unattractive so that people are pushed towards getting season tickets. For people who genuinely can't get season tickets but would still expect to go to a few games, it's pretty insulting. It's a dangerous game to play, it's pushing your more causal fans one way or another. Some may get season tickets, but I suspect a higher number will just end up going to less games than they would have done had the pricing been reasonable.
  7. We'd need to price sensibly to see the benefit of the World Cup excitement, which we don't.
  8. This is probably a stupid question but where is the survey? I’m a season ticket holder would have assumed it’s been sent to my email but there’s nothing there.
  9. Two big question with our squad. Firstly can / will Lee or Reach play wing back. Second can Foresteri play as an attacking midfielder. If so the ideal team I think looks like: Westwood - Van Aken Lees Venancio Lee Pelupessy Bannon Reach Foresteri Hooper Joao However I don’t think Reach is good enough defensively and Foresteri in midfield could be a bit too attacking. Because of that we really need a new LWB and the team below would probably be more balanced Westwood Van Aken Lees Venancio Lee Pelupessy Reach Bannon New Hooper Foresteri
  10. We’ve got a ridiculously unbalanced squad. If we’re playing 5-3-2 and the ideal squad is 2 players in each postion, with youth players or even loans filling in as and when then we can’t afford to sell any centre halfs but we need a massive clear out of strikers. If we can get any sort of money for Rhodes then he’s got to be straight out of the door. For me I’d take 4 strikers of Joao, Hooper, Foresteri and Winall. We probably wouldn’t get much for Matias, Fletcher and Nuhiu but I’m guessing it’d free up a fair bit in terms of wages. I’d also want to get rid of Abdi, again don’t think we’d recoup much for him though.
  11. I suprisingly warmed to Brown. Thought he was the best of the lot.
  12. This. The real un-sustainable situation is our transfer policy. Nobody can deny we've wasted millions. We've made bizarre signings like Urby, have big earners in our reserves in McGugan (who we seemingly refuse to sell) and a big squad with big wages. Chansiris done wonders for SWFC but I think that mainly comes from chucking money at our first team. I don't think he's a particularly savvy or talented chairman. I can't remember us selling a player for anything under him and we're now as fans expected to pay the highest prices in the league. That's not sustainable. A bad season and I worry Chansiri wouldnt know how to turn it around if his hands are tied in terms of financial muscle.
  13. Our fans are embarrassed. We've lost a friendly!
  14. A lot of the stadiums will be older than what you think. Without looking I bet Readings ground is closer to 20 years old
