Fans forum match day thread

Recommended Posts

The comparison between what seems to be happening at Sheffield Wednesday and what happened and is happening at my club, Charlton Athletic are pretty unavoidable.

The fans want a club, reasonably managed in a football sense, where there might be at least some link between football success and attendances/interest/history/standing/potential.

At Charlton football success was and is the least of the priorities. Anything that we are able to achieve or muster up in terms of the football is an accidental happenstance, certainly not due to the Owner (snap, our guy says the club is for sale too) or the last CEO we had (we don't have one since KM left). Indeed there has actually been an upturn in accidental success since we have been without KM as a CEO, or any CEO at all. To spice up the accidental success, there will be deliberate damage in the upcoming transfer window, I don't know if that is something Wednesdayites fear (yeah I know you might be thinking Morgan Fox and all).

The concept of being a Sheffield Wednesday fan, but indifferent to results when compared with the expensive 'fan experience' is what seems to be the thing being pushed at you, it was certainly the thing pushed at us.

When KM was first appointed, a poster here whose name I misremember..Tyro Alba or something... called things exactly right in my view, I don't know if he or she still posts, but I am interested in what that poster has to say a year on.

Think because we have been in league 1 before and the club still survived.

In fact 2 of the best moments this century were in League 1 pipping Sheffield United to promotion and Play off final 2005.

Also when used to go to away games got to places not been to before.

Although if not winning in league 1 can be a bit of a slog watching us struggle v Colchester at home.

It's a no from me, seen enough new places that I wouldn't want to visit again. There is generally a reason you have not already been there. Examples might include - Birkenhead, Newport, Accrington, Hartlepool, Bury all places you need a bloody good reason to visit, league 1 football is probably barely a reason to go. Birkenhead (Tranmere) being the worst always used to be on a Friday night and can't remember ever winning.

I will probably get a few negs, but i like Chansiri. He came across well and made me want to help him, (if i had 100million i would help out). I really do think if he could just blow tons of money on getting us to the premiership he would.

He has already tried that approch of just blowing millions without any thought behind it and has made thing worse.

Not sure if the question has been asked yet; was the "sale" quote off the cuff or was it ore planned? Any ideas?

He didn't mean the club is for sale, the language barrier has caused a poo storm. I would think most people who buy football clubs have zero experience, who would buy a second club? He said if there was anyway to get around FFP, he's done it. I believe him. Lets be fair, it was always gonna take a while to sort out. I doubt he will go for it again.

I agree, he would. But that’s exactly what got us into this mess in the first place.

 

The problem isn’t his willingness to spend money, the problem is how naieve and out of his depth he is.

 

Combine his willingness to spend with professionals who know what they’re doing and have experience of football would be a great combination, but he isn’t that person.

 

He needs to go as soon as possible because if he stays, I really don’t see any evidence that things will change.

Yeh I hope he goes soon, can’t wait to meet the new man , how many millions can he throw at it whilst keeping POTG prices at £5 for adults to keep this lot happy , whilst still signing players for millions and on 25k a week , not forgetting cheap as chips exec boxes and BOGOF season tickets 

 

can’t wait to meet him
