Liquidation

Recommended Posts

Sorry but this is possibly one of the craziness things I've read on here. we're just out of the s**t and you want to go straight back.

What happens if we 'go for it' and it doesn't work? Ee buy a load of big game player who end up being Jeffers mark II. Broke, no happy memories and playing skegness united.

Patience, grasshopper, is the path to true enlightenment.

Ok lol I am well and truly out numbered lol

But patience flipping patience! I think anyone who has watched Wednesday over the last 40 plus years can be classed as patient lol

We werent steady under Dave Richards and it has taken us 15 years to get over it .On the verge of going out of business if MM had not stepped in,cant believe people want to go down that path again.If were in premiership in 7 years time I would be delighted sat with my lad cheering the owls on thinking how far we have come in 10 years.From div1 and bankrupt to a seat at the top table and solvent.If we get there sooner so be it but not if it puts the club at risk.

Fair enough it's my opinion based on years of playing it safe tactics at s6

I don't think ive ever seen us play it safe.

We were in the premiership paying wages we couldn't afford, great while it lasted.

We have since then been bouncing between lower Championship and League One on a pathetic budget that we still couldn't maintain.

We escaped admin and possible liquidation by about a week.

Look at Portsmouth now, i wonder what they would prefer?

FA Cup winners to posssible non league in the space of 4 years.

Crazy talk man, have you been a sleep for the last 13 years.

Big difference between us and Pompey is our following. We are a much bigger club and would never have gone bust. Yes big thanks to Milan etc etc but I never have believed he was the last and only option.

Don't agree. We could afford the wages, whilst we were in the Prem

No mate , I sincerely do not want Wednesday to sit in the championship and play it safe. Over my years of watching Wednesday I am sick of them playing safe. Remember invest in the stadium not the team blah, blah. Having a better stadium than man utd 25 years ago has really got us somewhere !

If man city go bust in 5 years time at least their fans will have had the memories, if they get put in league 7 they will be back just as rangers

Will be back aNd just as Wednesday will be back

Throwing money money money at the promotion to the top flight is a gamble.

It's a gamble with our future, especially when we seem to be getting all the groundwork underway. Picking up players for the mid to long term, cheaply. Investing in infrastructure, scouting network, academy - and doing it all in a sustainable manner.

We've waited this long, we can wait another season or two, surely? And that is not to say that even without throwing stupid money at it this season, we still won't have a bloody good shot at a high finish.

but neither did we really go for it under sir dave lol, IMO the board at the time played at it and came up short. All or nothing for me.

I would say no more than 3 years to where we are consolidating now.

Imo Wednesday would never spend any lenghth of time in the lower divisions we are simply too big a club to be out of the top two divisions for any lenghth of time

Just like Rangers you mean? Less than one week to start of the Scottish season and they aren't even definitely in the league yet!

Pompey likely to go bust in the next two weeks and you want to spend, spend,spend!

No thanks, I've seen us struggle enough financially over the last 40 odd years, prudence is now the watchword. Besides as other clubs go for it and go bust (which they will) we will climb up the league anyway.

I've heard many an Owl say over the years that Richard didn't quite spend enough, if he'd pushed it a bit further we could indeed have really established ourselves as top 6. They are well informed fans I speak of too, not burberrys

Well if we go the prudent way that you wish I hope you are right about us climbing up the league

Personally i suspect that any team that goes into the epl that way will struggle and will have a 50% chance of gOing straight back down or at best effectively be guests in the bottom half of the league until the inevitable happens. There will of course be the odd exception but IMO the prudent way will condem Wednesday to be forever an also ran club.

Portsmouth will always exist in some kind of form

Please don't throw insults like calling someone messed up it's a very immature thing to do
