Obviously what Leeds and Leicester did was nothing to admire. But then going into admin means they went from debt free to where they are now, and certainly in Leicester’s case that was done by prudent management and not being sentimental about the prospect of selling players for profit. We have also gone from debt free but ended up with lots of it, a few embargo's, EFL charges and an ageing squad with little resale value. I believe that is Arthur’s point and it’s hard to find fault with it, personally.

Our fans are like some poor bloke who's wife has left him and will now accept any old poo just so that he doesn't die alone.

Big supporter of the chairman,  Personally I don’t see a way of the EFL losing this , I think there may be a strong argument from the club in certain aspects but the EFL will have to find any way possible to make the charges stick , and Gibson’s gonna pressure them all the way to do so 

 

For me, this is the beginning of the end of Chansiris reign

That's as presumptive as the people who blindly assume Chansiri can do no wrong. Let's see how it all pans out.

I ain't worried about my Missus, or dying alone, just saying that this current situation, is champagne & oysters compared to the 1970's.  I demand nothing, because "demands" are irrelevant,  Wednesday is what they are, across the decades, either support them or don't.

For a chap who's looking to "learn" you seem to have pretty well entrenched opinions.

Some of us want better for the club than accepting dross because we were even worse 40 years ago. 

 

Actually, it's not as though i'm asking for much at all. Just a club that operates within it's means, engages with supporters and has a positive, forward thinking plan of how to improve the club across all aspects. That is the hallmark of a club that is set up for success. We have zero foundations, and that is the fault of the owner.

Chelsea transfer ban halved. 


 Chelsea can buy players in the January transfer window after the court of arbitration for sport announced that the two-window transfer ban has been halved.  

 

“The sole arbitrator found that CFC did violate Articles 19.1 (related to the international transfer of minors) and 19.3 (related to the first registration of minors), but for a significantly smaller number of players (about one third of the violations found by Fifa). In addition, the violations of other RSTP rules were found to be less serious than those attributed to Chelsea FC by FIFA. Accordingly, the Sole Arbitrator reduced the sanction to one single transfer ban (which Chelsea FC already served during the 2019 summer registration period), and halved the monetary sanction.

 

Just putting it ot there

The problem I see with the club is we go from one crisis to another all pretty much of our own creating.

 

DC comes in as the money man Milan was unable to be, in the first season he has a solid base to build on left by the work of Milan and Gray with the help of a football man in Roeder he bring good premiership fringe players in, in Bannan, Foresteri, Hunt, Pudil and some good loans, the signing of Hooper if he could have stayed fit would have been a great bit of business, but already the cracks were starting to show, offering 3 and 4 year deals to players with questionable fitness levels.

 

The play off final year was a wave of positivity for club of the likes I had not seen since the arrival of Di-Canio, Waddle, Hirst we were playing good English football with 11 men working their socks off for each other and giving 120% for the shirt, mixed in with some real quality players pulling the strings in attack..

 

We missed the play off and this for me is where it went wrong, DC looked at ways to make more money probably to invest in the team instead of looking for corporate involvement such as a big shirt deal or a naming rights as other teams had done he unfortunately look to the fans, the lifeblood of this team turning up in 20,000 for 20 years when the club and ground decaying around then but still they turn up in their masses to support the blue and white come what may. We live in a poor area of the country not the capital London, the price increases on tickets, merchandise and everything meant fans were priced out of their own team, corporate sponsors were scared off with the 200% price increases on advertising and boxes when they could pay half the price down the road to watch premiership football. He then looked at other ways such as shirt being made in house, there is a reason why most teams use big companies its called 'profit' instead we had our shirts 3 months late and not the greatest of standard at first and all of the sizes seemed to be wrong, not to mention the 50% increase in the price.

 

Many many other mistakes have been made and too many to mention unless you want this to be 10,000 words, But the latest idea was to sell the stadium to cover the losses of the club for 3 years off miss management and probably the worse recruitment in the history of the Owls under any chairman - symbolised by the signing of a former Dutch international (Urby Emanuelson) on a reported £20,000 a week to play just 27 minutes in a whole season. Over the last 18 months probably due to 2 transfer embargos and numerous players leaving when out of contract, the recruitment has got better and the signing of Borner, Harris and Iorfa could well hopefully be the way forward, signing good talent for not a lot the ways we had signed Brunt, Whelan, McClean, Antonio  in their way to help the club move forward and give us a decent player that could be sold at a profit in he future. 

 

We now find ourselves at loggerheads with the governing body of our league I pray that the club are in the right and we get off with this, because if we don't I can see us heading the same way as Coventry, Portsmouth and Bradford City all teams that have fallen from grace, over spent to try and get back to the big time, been miss managed and now find themselves in the lower reaches of English football.

 

The next few months when this case is decided could well define SWFC for the next 5-10 years. I hope and pray as a lifelong Owl that we some how get off with minimal damage.

This in a nutshell is why no one should be 'proud' of Chansiri. No responsible owner plays russian roulette with a football club. If this goes boobies up then there is nothing stopping him just jetting back to Thailand. As usual it will be the supporters who suffer.

Not sure he can just get on a plane and leave. He’s got a lot of money tied up, he will need to find a buyer, may be he’s already trying to find one?

 Not until DC writes his memoirs will we get closer to actually what went on behind the scenes.

 

For me Wednesday along with one or two big long stay clubs in the Championship (Derby and Forest) have fallen foul of the FFP, in that they have the financial backing but not allowed to spend and not had any parachute payments at all or for a number of years.   

 

And to challenge for promotion as their fans in the main dictate they have had to creative in how they raise money to do so.  Ultimately teams for whatever reason fail to get promoted.

 

The Championship over the past few years is littered with such clubs another two being QPR and Leicester, I'm sure that they will be other clubs who have had to be creative.

 

I appreciate that FFP is there to protect clubs but it does appear that some clubs are being held back by FFP, maybe it's time to revisit FFP and come up with a better system.

No he's not. He the club, he could appoint anyone to run the club and can still run it behind the scenes. Ok can't attend EFL meetings etc or pose with new players.

If the EFL ban Chansiri he will be gone, sold to the first reasonable bidder 

 

But don’t worry .... no dodgy people will get past the EFL’s fit and proper person test , will they ?

Why couldn't money be raised by selling players, even clubs like Liverpool sell players every now and then?
Selling players and replacing players not only is better financially but stops the playing staff going stale.
The art I guess is buying and selling players at the right time.

Probably losing millions of pounds which he would never get back might make him stick around. Thing at the heart of all this is the EFL trying to dictate what owners can do with their own money. Football is a business let it run like it and stop trying to create some ideal where you can not buy who you want. All about keeping the PL for the PL. EFL are just worried to upset the PL, why do they let PL clubs spend more?
