Hope everyone is prepared for this tonight. It was the undercurrent of the last fans forum, and it didn't go down well.

 

Tonight we sit in a far worse position and I imagine there will be fireworks when Mr C points the finger of blame at ourselves!

Reading the article this morning in the Star, I don't think Chansiri is blaming the fans. Stop playing the victim.

The first thing he needs to do is apologise and acknowledge his mistakes and accountability.

 

He then needs to let us know who he is bringing in to help him run things properly.

 

 

 

I don't think he has an apology in him

If he uses the fans excuse again particularly for the few people who have overstepped the line on social media I will try and stand up and ask him this question. 

 

Every high profile role such as yours, particularly at a football club will attract a significant amount of trolling on social media. Do you not think it unreasonable to make 99.9% fans responsible for the 0.01% who have overstepped the line?

I heard on Radio Sheffield this morning, that Jos has said that fans expectations are way too high and we shouldn't expect promotion or play-offs....... I certainly don't expect that, and I don't think a lot of the fan base expect that! What we expect is the odd good performance and a few decent results, not the garbage that is currently being served up! Continue like this and we're down, simple as that.

 

We shall see later but Jos's comments I think point in the direction tonight's forum is going to go from the DC point of view...... It's the fans fault that our expectations are too high, and hence this is putting too much pressure on the team.

 

So, I don;t think we're going to get what you're asking for Mr. F. although, I agree, that's what we really need to hear.

If he uses those words I will try and maintain my composure and ask him why he thought it sensible to say there will be big trouble if we don't get promoted this season? He has contributed to the hysteria he and jos is facing now when we inevitably didn't have hope of achieving that. 

 

There is also the small fact that we were told to pay top prices for the best players and to achieve the Premier league.

 

So why are we still paying top prices and now told instead that we have way too high expectations. We are 5 points off the drop with 1 win in 10.

Agreed but I doubt anything is significantly going to change. Those expecting some announcement of a takeover or new manager will be disappointed.

No we all knew this but what doesnt help is DC saying in last forum he thinks we have a squad capable to try and sell more tickets etc. Its a lie and deceitful to fans who may not have the money but have overstretched to be apart of something. 

 

If he is not blaming players, himself or Jos we are in for a long night. 

 

DC OUT!!! JOS OUT!!!!

This was me - - I couldn't for the life of me think why DC would organise a forum to be slaughtered unless he has good news.

 

Seems he is not as savvy as some would think.

Good post.

To me if I was only allowed 1 question tonight this would be it. High prices for worst football for 10 years.

My interpretation is that it would mean releasing all those out of contract and may be selling a couple more.

 

DC likes to keep  players (and perhaps thinks we are more attached to players  staying than we actually are) seeing the dismantling of a previously competitive team as bad, whereas it is necessary to evolve.

 

 However, think most of us agree we need to cut our cloth to meet the arbitrary limit put in place by EFL. We have money to spend, but not allowed to.

Prices set at a level allowing DC to invest enough money into the club to maintain the playing staff. 

 

As was explained at the last forum, gate receipts don't cover back office expenses.

 

If we want lower prices we can have them but would need to sell players as EFL would restrict the amount DC can invest to cover losses. Likewise, if for arguments sake we paid £100 for a ticket (I know some may say don't give him any ideas!) DC could increase his investment accordingly.

 

I agree POTG prices are high, but as one who pays these prices (when I choose to o attend when Jos is replaced) may get more value once high earners are released in the summer and squad balanced into a more competitive  team

Didn't our esteemed chairman tell us that we have better players than Un*ted?  They seem to be doing OK.

Agree with this but will be shocked if it happens.

Jos out definitely but who is gonna pay the bills if DC leaves? We are stuck with DC. Best we can hope for is that he employs someone experienced to run the club

Completely understand that. 

 

Still want him out regardless and someone with knowledge of how to run club in. Shame there wont be many queuing up.

 

However, if the play off final attendance, coverage and atmosphere is anything to go by an owner can make money with us if correct decisions are made. The club has the possibility to be huge should we have an owner that can inspire a fan base not criticize them. We are a huge city and probably have underestimated our potential as to how 'MASSIVE' we can be. With the right leadership we have the potential to easily bring in 30k+ gates regularly in the championship - not just the one off matches. 

 

However, the constant bad decisions currently are now not mistakes anymore. They now highlight the inability to run a club.
