I’m confused as to what you mean by outsiders view of the club, you don’t seriously think the club will ever be owned by a life long Wednesday fan do you ?

Did you see that thread a couple of weeks ago about the Forest player supposedly going on strike if the season was ended prematurely? There was reply after reply slagging him off for his outrageous impudence even though something like a quarter of the posts made it clear that he had said no such thing and that the headline was basically a lie.

Simply that most football supporters will have a view on Ashley (probably negative) whereas many will never have heard of Chansiri.  Can’t imagine any future owner being a Wednesday fan.

Right I’ve got you, a British owner rather than a foreign owner, for me I’m torn over the issue of Ashley becoming the owner, morally how he runs his businesses with zero hours contracts etc doesn’t sit right with me but his investment in Newcastle has been vast all be it with little success

I actually prefer the idea of us having an owner who is prudent with the club’s finances. Personally, even though Milan invested far less than DC I actually much preferred the time he owned our club to the current period. With regards to Mike Ashley I’ve no problem with him being careful with his money, but I worry far more about him as a person and whether he could bond a winning, harmonious philosophy at our club.

He can fizz right off. I’m no fan of DC but Ashley would be even worse. 

just interested. are you not a fan of dc because of his mistakes and the stubborn  nature he seems to have and it appears he may not learn or you think hes trying make a quick buck and just has no interest in club as such

Definitely the first option, mistakes, stubborn nature and the mess he has got us in to with regards FFP etc.

What exactly did MM invest? He loaned the money against the club's assets he did not invest his own funds as DC has done

What we need is a well-heeled leader(s) maybe a consortium, who will look on SW as a business deal, whereby they can appoint someone to run the football side of things. The appointed someone will need to be football-wise, have a reputation as a winner worldwide, able to attract excellent footballers and weld them into a team.. They then need to sit back in their air-conditioned apartments in whatever country they may choose as their tax-haven, and slowly but surely watch the profits roll in.

I have no call against anyone making money out of Wednesday's success.Profit is not a dirty word, it is simply the reward of success.

I understand the sentiment of wanting a steadier ship but under Milan we were still losing £5M a season with attendances in the top 6 in the division and a budget in the bottom 6. 

Milan himself said it wasn't sustainable and would likely have just been a slower trip towards financial problems without the play-off campaigns.

 

Some point towards teams getting promoted from this division without significant overspending and the blunts were put forward as an example of this - until their 2018-19 accounts revealed a £21M loss for the year. Despite Wilder's mantra of not putting the club at risk financially it seems another season in the Championship wold probably have seen them breach the rules.

Stuart Gray managed over 5 years ago. You'd have expected him to take a chance in management, or someone to take a chance on him by now if that was his career path. He seems far more suited to being an assistant or a coach than a manager.

 

He did a steady job for us but it was turgid to watch at times, we barely scored a goal from open play at Hillsborough in the first half of one season under him.

Would much rather have Ashley running our club than a Saudi owner like them across the city

 

I’d even rather keep chansiri in charge than that

Promotion bonuses were the reason for the higher than normal loss.

Of the £21.3M losses, how much was attributed to these bonuses?
