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.

 

Ave heard it's going well - bids are now up to 89p on Ebay. :Chansiri:

Does anyone know whether a points deduction wipes the slate clean or could we end up still under an embargo next year?  If it does and we can turn the form round for the run in to pull us out of danger then it may be worth taking.

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

If the chairman walks tomorrow who do you think will put the Approx. £2m per month into the club account every month to pay the bills?

Unfortunately we’ll still have to comply with the 3 year rolling £39m overspend limit.

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!


Unforgivable for me if we do. Pure mismanagement and puts the clubs future in serious trouble.

Surely they can read. They must have an idea what's coming same as the rest of us. 

 

Being told what the deduction will be by the club is hardly the same as reading speculative shyte online.

Embargo and points deduction are 2 seperate things! 
 

Embargo doesn’t matter if the chairman doesn’t want to spend.

How do they know? 

 

Has it been decided already have they even had the hearing?

 

Would DC go tearing over to the training field to tell the players how many points we are going to get penalised if it was the case?   

 

I would think he would keep it under his hat until the official announcement.

What happened to the Chairmans questionnaire ?

 

The one that stated should we continue to keep prices as they are and continue with the current level of investment (or words to that effect)

 

 

does anyone know what our level of investment was before and after this questionnaire ?

 

 

 

 

The only mathematics needed are what ffp constraints decree..it really doesn't matter how much you want to invest..as we've seen.
