They spent £40m, with only £19m going out.

 

THEY SPENT LOADS FFS 

 

Really...

An entire squad full of spineless overpaid wasters led by an uninspiring manager and a chairman who doesn't give 2 hoots...what a time to be alive.

Saturday was the final straw for me

 

If you've done and are never going again, you've packed in being a supporter so why bother having any interest on this forum?

 

By the way, Megson was never a god at this club, he was another one disliked by staff, bit of itk from a few years ago this.

Investment is about the same isn't it as pre questionnaire?

I have been on here many years but never been ITK with stuff. However, today is the day after nearly a decade on Owlstalk that I join the highly esteemed likes of The Bizzle, Big Guns, Penguin and John Bloodaxe in being truly ITK. 

 

One of my friends (not an Owl) works at another Championship club and a guy who he knows from university currently works for us (I won't say the role but it is with the first team and U23). They met last week and got talking about Wednesday as he knows my family are all supporters and season ticket holders. This is what he passed on to me, some of it is very obvious stuff we can all guess, but some other things might be surprising.

 

- The first team were told that a points deduction is inevitable and is imminent (although DC is still committed to appealing it). He had heard 12 points was what had been mentioned to the first team and he does think this has really affected the performances etc

- DC wants out and has hardly spent any time at the club this season. He is also quite widely disliked by staff there

- If we do manage to stay up after a points deduction he doesn't believe DC will be spending much on big signings again

- Monk is apparently liked by the players and staff (surprising) and the way he speaks seems to indicate he plans to be here long term and use a new younger side 

- Westwood and Hutch have been pushed out after falling out with Monk. Apparently they both aren't that well - liked behind the scenes, especially with the newer players. He also described one of them as not a nice character

- There are some divisions within the dressing room 

- Fletcher is a legend and everyone loves him 

- Rhodes was due to sign for Celtic on transfer deadline day on loan but DC requested a ridiculous loan fee that Celtic didn't want to pay

- Monk has been told he can bring in his own backroom staff and wants a big turnover in the current playing squad in the summer

- In his opinion as an employee and not a supporter, the club massively lacks leadership and direction and it seems that things are just plodding along without any real aims. Just a sort of, 'let's hope we get promoted' without having any real plan. This stems from DC

- He has no idea why we haven't got a Chief Exec or an equivalent to run the day to day things at the club, especially seeing as DC is rarely ever at the club nowadays

 

Most it seems pretty plausible and nothing too groundbreaking. Enjoy garymegson


I am disappointed that you didn’t mention the mighty JonTheOwl in your ITK shoutouts.

Rhodes and Westwood I believe still contracted until 2021. 


Bannan, Reach and Lees aswell who are on over 20k a week and contracts expire in 2021.

 

Other than that we only have Palmer, Iorfa, Borner, Luongo, Wildsmith and Dawson. Don’t think there’s any mega contracts there 

Can't believe we gave Palmer a 3 year deal and Dawson a 4 year deal... it's like we're locking in mediocrity. Same as giving Wildsmith a 5 year deal I think it was... he'd have been released about 3 years ago without that

You’re in Thailand, can’t you just nip out and have a word with DC’s dad?

No way did only 19 million depart in player transfers

 

They got 30 million for Sissoko from Spurs, 12 million from Palace for Townsend and around 25 million from Liverpool for Winjaldum

 

Geordie fans couldn't believe their eyes when they saw a 30 million figure for Sissoko, a comparison of that is a club offering one pence for Kim Olsen

A large % of the squad won’t be here next season for a variety of reasons, and they’ve known that for a while. They’ve downed tools. Agents will have moves lined up for the summer, and they won’t want to get injured. It’s as simple as that imo. 

I’ve got to agree with this one, some are clearly going through the motions

I don’t see it like that

 

All our fans love the club, but these players that are currently representing us are a complete embarrassment and many have had enough

If the OP is right then the bit of information that I heard and dismissed could be true...that DC is in talks with an Indian billionaire to sell the club to him.

The only slight positive from this mess is that I’m sure DC has plenty of billionaire mates who’d be stupid enough to take a punt at us, although if they’re as naive as DC they can keep their money

At difficult times like this let’s grasp hold of the only glimmer of hope in the OP

 

Chansiri might actually phook off 

 

Hopefully sooner rather than later

Well if they brought in more in transfer fees than they paid out, surely they didn't spend anything.

I win £200 on a bet 

If I spend £190 on a night out - have I not spent anything??

I think its shameful that we get a points deduction.

 

Will it be the first time in our history? 

 

If it is then Chansiri should hang his head in shame and sell up!

Sooner we know our fate the better. Hanging over this team and club, need to know what we are playing with.

 

Do I think it will improve the teams performance? Probably not though it isn’t helping anyone.

 

Comments about Chansiri looking to sell sounds best for all parties.
