I think you're overstating it slightly, I'd back our current team to beat that one, but mainly because of Iorfa and Fletcher (if we're counting him, I know he's injured just now) being a cut above anything in that side.

 

The gap is scarily small though - and we still don't look anywhere near being a side who can sustainably compete at the top.


Yes I should really have said it’s debatable whether we’re a better team now.

 

And I was basing that on the team we’ve put to the field against Blackburn, Wigan and today.

 

If you add Fletcher and Forestieri in we’re a better side now but the difference in standard between our squad 5 years ago and now is a lot smaller than it should be given the money spent.

 

The wage bill 5 years ago must have been about a quarter of what it is now

And that is such an important point - Milan gave us very little to spend but it didn't stop Stuart Gray putting together a very solid side who probably would have finished higher up with a playable pitch. 

 

DC's spent God knows how many million over 5 years to get us nowhere.

The EFL verdict will reveal how recklessly he has ran the club.

If he never arrived. We would have sold players today alright. All our best ones for whatever we could get for them.

Look at the teams at the top of the league. They've all sold players to teams higher up. They're also a damn sight closer to the Premier League than we are and aren't about to get slapped with a 21 point penalty.

What we need to learn is to sell players at the right time. Fergie was a master at that at united. Should have sold Forestieri after the Norwich thing. When we could still get a good fee for him. But most of the clubs you are talking about  sell there best players and replace with players with promise to do the same thing again in a couple of seasons. Good model to keep the club running well. But its gor the future. How many times have the likes of Brenford and Bristol City even got in the play offs in the last 5 years letalone gone up.

Give over...if he had employed himself to run the club he would have sacked himself 3 of 4 years ago. Nobody gets away with ‚Äútrying hard‚ÄĚ if they are just not up to it.¬†

Hopefully the verdict of the EFL being allowed to charge us will be known in the next few weeks.  I’m sure Chansiri is fighting the EFL charge for many reasons but it’s including protecting his investment as much as possible.
 

If we can avoid both relegation this season and a points deduction for next season then I hope he tries to sell us to someone with new ideas.

What's his overarching failure? Ticket prices? Or not getting us to the prem yet?

No, I don’t. 
 

Reasons, in no particular order...

 

Embargoes. 

Farcical 150th celebrations. 

Keeping Carlos a year too long. 

Appointing Jos. 

Allowing an absurd transfer policy to take hold that resulted in a bloated, ageing squad that threatens the financial stability of the club. 
Insulting ticket policies. 
Imposition of Thai customs on a Sheffield football club. 
BBC debacle. 
Multiple kit f*** ups. 
 

We had one trip to Wembley (after getting very lucky in the home leg against Brighton) and a capitulation in the semi-final the year after. 
 

We have spent millions and diminished our reputation and standing within the footballing world all to find ourselves worse off on and off the pitch to when Chansiri took over. 
 

I really cannot see how his ownership can be seen as anything other than an abject failure. 
 

Now, things have been bad in the past but the stakes were lower then. It will be much, much harder for us to claw our way out of the pit we’re falling into.  The financial losses alone eclipse our problems in the past. 
 

For the first time in 36 years of me being a Wednesdayite, we have become an embarrassment. 

Good post...

When I tell people about the goings on at our club they are astonished..

Some laugh with a WTF..

Outside the Sheffield bubble we are a laughing stock..

We had no money to invest in the side and a team made up of old heads and loanees.There was only one place we were going as Mandaric had pulled the plug.

Just like now..

That's a very bold statement you've made there sdewsna.

Any proof to substantiate this claim?....

I am surprised the vote is so close. A man with plenty of money, who has wasted millions.

Spunking millions up the wall and taking us no closer to promotion in terms of league position.

 

A points deduction and his position becomes untenable.

His failure is not not getting Wednesday in the PL but it is the total financial, commercial and for want if a better description pastoral mismanagement of the club which has seen it run up huge losses probably +£100m by now, have no coherent strategy on buying/ selling players, generate little outside commercial income, have to sell the ground to offset the worse of his losses and running the risk of EFL financial and points penalties, deliberately price out a section of the fan base, resorting to desperate attempts to mortgage future season ticket income and  finally at least for me his egotistical Chansirification of Wednesday with his bloody name everywhere.

Struggle to see why anybody would disagree with this.

To be fair, I'd trust Warwick to run us more effectively than DC.
