  1. If anyone is left in any doubt as to the man's ability to effectively run a (our) football club, then just listen to this clip. Somebody above said the word 'dangerous'. Damn right. This man is a real and present danger to the long term continuity of Sheffield Wednesday Football Club as an entity. We need action now - and I welcomed the new Owls Trust statement yesterday as an open invitation to assist. But, if this falls on deaf ears (as I suspect it might), then we need to come together as a fanbase to find a solution that sees Chansiri leave our club. As I sit here
  2. I've been a long time critic of Chansiri pretty much from the time of the Bristol City pricing fiasco. But the most saddening thing of all throughout this sorry affair was to witness fellow Sheffield Wednesday fans calling other fans out about not 'contributing' to 'the cause' as they refused to ante up either for overpriced multi year season tickets or for ridiculous POTG prices. The vitriol that was cast down on these individuals from so-called fellow supporters was belittling and sickening to witness. And behind the scenes you had the chairman whipping up these fanatics with num
  3. I'd personally drive DC back to Thailand myself. He's been an unmitigated disaster for the club and the sooner he's gone the better.
  4. And that's even assuming that the results of the survey were actually the 'real' results of the survey The guy is a total fraud I'm afraid.
  5. Lasted until the following season where they moved the away fans into Lep Upper.
  6. Watch at 1:32 and you'll see netting over seats in North separating fans.
  7. Oh...OK, let's forget it then and carry on as we are. Because all is completely well at S6. If we carry on doing nothing or carry on as we are, we genuinely risk becoming the 2nd club in Sheffield within the next 5 years - and that would be almost impossible to turn back around.
  8. The Cantilever was used by away fans after the Hillsborough disaster. They were positioned at the Lep end with Wednesdayites in the Kop end. Very simple to implement.
  9. I'm unsure whether it would bring in more money looking at it purely from a 'gate receipts' perspective. But... Imagine the boost to the community if it was fully re-engaged... Imagine more bums on seats creating a better atmosphere and general feeling around the club... Imagine if those extra bums on seats visit the club shop, buy a pint (or two halves ), or a chip butty... Imagine the kids at £99 for the season, students at £150 per season with the thought that these people may become long term fans who in turn encourage other family members t
  10. Really...it is a simple enough equation to solve it just takes Chansiri to admit he's got it wrong the last 5 years (which will never happen). Matchday Prices £25 Kop £25 Lep (for home fans) Lower Lep given to community sources for each game. £30 South £30 North (with away fans at the Lep end) £5 discount for members. Membership £30 per year. Season Tickets Kop/Lep £350 North/South £450 Kids £99 Students £150 Simple and easy to understand. Gets our fans behind both goals. Solves the issue w
  11. Hang on...surely all the ST holders are going to this one? Especially those righteous ones who call out the POTG fans who can't afford to tip up £40 to watch a league game?? They won't be watching it on the Tele surely??
  12. That groundswill (sic - you meant groundswell) is pretty abundant this morning wouldn't you say?? Still...the play off final was reight good innit.
  13. And there we have it. Part of the problem right there. Maybe you'll be happy rattling around S6 with several thousand die-hards in a few years stating "by eck, remember those so-called fans who wanted cheaper tickets, I'm glad we got rid of them, lots easier to get to the bar at half time and to stretch our legs". Disgusting.
  14. Season tickets are only value for money if you can guarantee going to the vast majority of the games. Once you start to miss games, and midweek games are prime example for me personally with work, then the value for money aspect becomes less and less so. Another thing, the only reason people state that Season tickets deliver value for money is because they are basing it against the abhorrent costs for attending matches POTG. Anything around £600 for a ST would seem value for money when compared against 23 x £35 (£35 being a rough average for POTG non-member) which totals £805.
  15. Yeah forgot about them Point still stands there is plenty of room for them at the West side of the South stand. There is just no joined up thinking coming from the club whatsoever, in whichever capacity you might care to mention - football, marketing, retail, development, engagement. My 80 year old Grandma is better at social media than SWFC.
  16. No flies on you pal! The fact you think you can justify the continued high prices, fan alienation and downright ripping off of your fellow supporters by spouting that we all paid "Wembley prices"...Of course we feckin did! We've only been to Wembley once since 1993 - we might not be going again for another 20 years so of course this can be viewed as a one-off game where prices become largely immaterial.
  17. Just stating fact - if you wanna trawl through my past posts they are largely bemoaning the fact that we are ripping off our own fans and taking their support for granted - and may I point out I'm not the only one that's ever said this. It's just that now there is a growing groundswell of opinion that matches mine and the time is right to demand some sort of action against it. Face the facts, we are a mid-table division 2 team and have been for 20 years (give or take flirtations with the 3rd division). On the back of the astronomic price rises back in 2015 we were promised champagn
  18. Nowhere in my post did I say that. But come one... the tone on here even going wayyyyyy back to 2015 was that as long as some people could afford the prices and attend games regardless of price - then to hell with the rest of the fan base. That is the behaviour and thinking that has to stop immediately. if only we had a representative fan group that could comment on club decisions and hold them to account every now and again when deemed necessary?!
  19. Well well well...Seems like the penny is finally dropping for some. The 'Chansiri Model' of pricing for tickets is not sustainable for continued growth of attendances. I've only been spouting this since the first pricing template was launched by Chansiri prior to the Bristol City game back in 2015. You can only ever get away with prohibitively high ticket prices if the product on the pitch is sufficiently good enough for the paying public to acknowledge the correlation between cost and product. As soon as this is eroded then expect attendances to fall, apathy to set in, and a runaw
  20. First of all, this isn't a dig at the Club on tickets (as I've often been opinionated about ticket prices etc) but I think the process on distribution of tickets has been somewhat forced onto us by the FA/Football League. And there can be no perfect scenario, someone is always going to be upset by a set of circumstances no matter what happens. Anyway, I've been taking my nephew to games for the past couple of years and now he is a dyed in the wool proper little Wednesdayite. But I've been taking him on my ID number. So while I've got more than enough points to easily get myself a ticket I'm n
  21. We were discussing in the pub afterwards whether the atmosphere was better than Kaiserslauten...we were split as a group and couldn't get a definitive answer. But for me the big difference was the Kaiserslauten atmosphere was one bred on anger, resentment, a sense of wrong doing (due to the penalty and Hirstys sending off in the 1st leg). Last nights was one of self belief and realisation that we are most definitley 'on our way back' after so many years of hurt. It was a real S6 love in where team, fans, boardroom, club were all as one as the great behemoth that is Sheffield Wednesday Football
  22. You've changed your tune Nigel. We were having a twitter debate on prices less than a month ago and you argued that Chansiri was correct in his pricing strategy. What's made you change?
  23. Look, certain people will dress this up to suit their own agendas. I thought it was a poor move by the club to put these on sale with such a short window and straight after Christmas. I genuinely can't see what the club has achieved by doing this. Yet another P R disaster.
  24. So........ It wasn't 18k then??!? Surprise surprise.
  25. Look, I've got better things to do than trawl through loads of other clubs prices. Simply, I picked Leeds because everyone agrees they used to be the most expensive club in the division. And, I simply chose the next two home games. I haven't got time for spreadsheets, graphs or algorithms. We are more expensive. Simple as that.
