I’m very angry tonight

This whole smokescreen about the Wednesday family and Carlos and Chansiri being abused on the internet 

 

Its made me really angry

 

I knew early this morning Carlos had gone and have been in the cinema and restaurant all day and night so not been online much

 

As a result have had time to reflect on the nonsensical rant that our Chairman delivered in the early hours, knowing it was a precursor to Carlos leaving 

 

To even try and suggest our fans have had any part to play in Carlos leaving is an absolute disgrace to me and total bull

 

The blaming of fans for a toxic atmosphere at the club is simply unbelievable and I’m not buying it 

 

Our fans this season have been the most patient tolerant and understanding fans a struggling Manager could ever have wished to have on their side

 

To then even mention them when parting company with the Manager is nothing short of scandalous

 

what should have happened is the chairman should have explained that the manager and Club have parted company, wished Carlos well )because he  is a top guy, and thanked fans for their ongoing support 

 

Instead we get a tirade that seems to suggest that the chairman is genuinely shocked that fans would be unhappy with what’s happened this year at the club.

 

Its not the fans fault that we are where we are in the league 

 

In fact we have struggled DESPITE top class support Home and Away 

 

Its not our fault the stripes are not on the shirts of Sheffield Wednesday

 

Its not our fault players are injured despite the entire medical team being put out of work in the summer 

 

It’s not our fault the players don’t play happy positive attacking football

 

its not our fault the kits were late and then out of stock

 

Its not our fault the anniversary pre season games didn’t materialise

 

Its not our fault that the shirt sizes have changed to some random sizes meaning loads of returns 

 

It’s not our fault the anniversary watches were oversold and refunds and other items had to be offered instead

 

its not our fault that the exec boxes aren’t sold out

 

Irs not our fault that players are playing like they’re unhappy 

 

It’s not our fault that fans are angry at being totally priced out of going to the matches 

 

its not our fault that those who can afford to go are angry at the prices they are being asked to pay - we didn’t put the prices up 

 

None is this season is the fault of ANY fan and it’s a disgrace to suggest so

 

Fans should not be taking this nonsense about it being any fault of the fans whatsoever never mind putting it forward as a reason to other fans

 

The whole thing is a total smokescreen

 

Dont believe the hype 

 

We are better than that 

 

Look at the league table, look at the ‘injuries’, look at how happy the players are despite their massive wages and then look at everything else that’s gone off at our club this season

 

Anyone suggesting the fans have been anything short of unbelievably patient and tolerant and fantastic needs to sit down in a quiet corner for a minute and look at the bigger picture instead of an angry rant from a Chairman who seems surprised that the fans would be miffed at paying massive ticket prices for the worst football since Gary Megsons last few weeks in charge 

 

 

I don't normally quote long posts but fuuck it... I'm also a bit angry today and I'm pretty sure this is why!

Just had a read of the statement and now I think I probably need to read it again because now I’ve read this thread it seems to be in a parallel universe. Maybe drink is the key to understanding.

That got me worried for a bit then, thought King Herod was back.

Ironic post of the year; having a non-sensical rant about a non-sensical rant. The difference being everyone read the chairman’s rant, I’d hazard a guess that 5% tops of people on this thread actually read all of yours. 

 

You up are starting to sound like an egotist that is desperate to lead some kind of mutiny against the Chairman. And I know where my money would go. Be careful what you wish for mate, whether it’s ego, bloody-mindedness or just click-baiting, if your wishes come true, it will bankrupt and probably end this club.

I have absolutely no idea how that would ever work though

Ranting about it to the whole fanbase just alienates them and confuses them

It won't ever solve the issue either. Those being abusive are doing so because they aren't articulate or responsible enough to express themselves in any other way and the rest of the fanbase won't change that.

It's just incredibly naive from the chairman and even worse it brings the whole fanbase into it which is unfair to those fans who haven't been abusive and would never be. 

There are thousands and thousands of decent, honest, great fans of ours that have been incredibly tolerant and patient this season (There were even queues for the new shirt when it went on sale months late without stripes etc etc) who just don't need to hear about the chairman's personal spat with some geezers on twitter shouting their mouths off at him

This statement wasn't just ill informed, poorly constructed and ill advised - it was a bad move and one that has upset many ordinary fans who don't ever deserve upsetting.

 

 

Not sure where you’ve got all that from

 

He said right near the start...

 

I must stress that I do not intend these things to be relevant to all our fans, just those who say things that are untruthful’

 

And this, which is basically your moderating policy...

 

’Feedback, opinion and constructive criticism is fine and healthy in any business. But when someone crosses the line and becomes abusive, this is something I cannot accept.’

 

Maybe I’m just not a very angry person.

Nowhere in DC's statement does he directly blame fans, he mentions abuse on social media (I've seen this first hand and its truly vile) I agree with his comment that if you want to abuse and be negative stay away. This whole thread is built on very poor foundations, 15 pages??????

I was in agreement with the OP until he said the worst football since Megson.

 

The fact is the football under Dave Jones became dire following promotion and I seem to remember from Mr Owlstalk himself: 1) the constant defence of DJ 2) the insinuation it was the fans fickle nature for wanting him out. 

I always find myself asking the same question with regards to the Irvine/Jones days - was the football that bad due to the tactics or simply the players weren’t good enough? I say the latter

Anger is a wasted emotion.  It's now time for us all to stand together and show our true mettle.  Onward and upward.

I'm angry that people are angry about something so frivolous.

 

FFS, some fans have been waiting since last January for today; now should be a time when we can all just hit the reset button and get behind the club as one entity again.

Amen to that. 

 

You’ve been way more patient and accepting of every (weekly) monumental wee wee tail up than most fans would. 

 

Chansiri deserves credit for the good that he’s done. But the bad outweighs the good. And those who know, know. 

 

Interested to see the new manager...

Like reading this forum but got to say Neil that is a total misunderstanding of what dc has said. It's simple. Criticise all you want but don't be abusive. That is all he is trying to say.  Some of our "wonderful " fans totally lack class. Where I sit most are embarrassed by a couple of loudmouth "fans" who berate certain players before they've even touched the ball. Carlos had to go but he  and dc do not deserve your very contrived and for most fans  inaccurate and subjective slant on swfc and reality. 

 

Plot and counter plot??? He just wants respect. That is all. He admits he makes mistakes . Ok let's go back to Allen/Strafford/ manderic etc. Then we'll be reminded of how crap things can really be.

 

Onwards and upwards with the next phase of "Wednesday are back ".

Neil , I don’t agree I’m sorry , i usually doff my cap to most of your posts ... but this one isn’t for me 

 

there’s a percentage of our fan base who find it acceptable to hurl pure abuse at our club, and I just can’t deny it’s there .... it’s there and for me it’s a very big problem

No it isn’t 

 

As a club we pay them no attention and stride on
