Some hysterical comments on here. It's not a bad piece. It may not be news to people here, by and large, but people on here are more interested in Sheffield Wednesday than the average Wednesday fan. The wider public know the square root of not very much about us because in most ways we are a very ordinary non-premier league club which I am afraid these days is largely known for owning the ground where the disaster happened. 

 

That may be sad, indeed unquestionably it is sad, but there we have it. We're a similar piece written about a comparable club to us (say Birmingham or Sunderland) I'd be mildly interested.

Owen Jones is a very, very bitter boy.

 

Enjoy those lemons, limes and the next 5 years, lad.

Very cutting edge running an article about something we’ve all known for 4 years

David Conn has a bit of an agenda I'm afraid. He didn't say anything untrue but he left out all the context.

It's not so much the article but the bits he's left out..being a man city fan he should clean his own wounds first.

He's a first rate tw@t, which is common for guardi writers...jones, that evil tw@t tonybee and many others

Guardian has some good writers. Martin Kettle and Jonathan Freedland are sensible; John Crace and Marina Hyde funny. . But no one has ever or will ever hit the standards of people like Ian Aitken, John Cole or Hugo Young.

 

That said, I can't think of any newspaper that has improved over the past 25 years with the probable exception of the FT; maybe The Times, which is awful compared to 40 years ago, but has got better since it went briefly way down market in the 90s price wars.

 

It is a stretch to call Toynbee evil, but she is remarkably careless with numbers.

 

Guardian also has the second best clutch of book reviewers, after the FT; and a decent stable of cryptic crossword setters.

 

I don't really understand why he should write about Man C as well in this piece. I suppose if it comes to sins of omission, some account of why a club is driven to the ludicrous lengths of phantom sponsors could have been included; but it kinds of all speaks for itself. 

 

As I say, we are not the target audience for this...

Seems to me a bit like an angry Scouser who is still wanting some cash from the club after failing to get Dukinfield hung by the Gonads. Typical Gruniad.

One of the most dishonest men I have ever encountered was an insolvency practitioner from Manchester called Stephen  Conn. I assume this one's a relative.

Very accurate post. I write having spent 20+ years as a reporter on Fleet Street. David Conn has done some brilliant work but I fear there is something of a grudge here against Wednesday. The phrase "so what?" comes to mind. In my opinion, football is rotten. Manchester City is owned by a country committing terrible acts in Yemen and denying human rights at home. Fit and proper? Compared with Chansiri?

Useless article.  Fight the good fight, tailface Conn.  

 

Instead of reporting an issue that the EFl has no issue with in the first place, how about you take down the moneyed fat cats (such as your beloved Liverpool) that have caused the classist gulf in football today?

No, but what's the point?  It's not something the EFL is concerned about, in his own words.

 

It's disingenuous to bring this up under the ruse of "potential issues", considering the larger fight at play between the club & league.

Anyone that writes for the guardian should be imprisoned in the Tower of London. Every club in the champ does this and we are far less guilty than most.
