Some serious money has been invested and most of it (in hindsight) has been wasted 

 

Rhodes, Van Aken, Jones, Boyd and Abdi alone must have cost around £30m in fees and wages

A rare positive thread and it gets a negative response within 4 posts 

 

Come on people there are far worse things happening in the world than us starting on -12 points, just try and look at things in a positive light every now and again 

To be honest I'm getting sick of the relentless negativity about a point we probably all agreed on sometime ago, i.e. Chansiri is badly advised. And yes the spending was reckless and ridiculous too.

But some idiots can't get past this and see some of the positives - one of which is posted here.

For me its starting to make the whole site toxic. But maybe that is their intention, just have one negative viewpoint relentlessly hammered home thread after thread.

you're correct he should give you money back, then buy no ****er in closed season and put season tickets up £300 each, that ok?

football fans.

So if you just want to help the club out for nothing in return..drive down to the ground and give them some money👍

There is little doubt about DC's love for Sheffield Wednesday. Why would he keep chucking money at it if it wasn't his obsession? 

As an intelligent bloke, sometime he has to wake up one morning and ask himself, "where am I going wrong?" 

If it's so easy for us mere mortals of supporters to see he needs experienced advice instead of the advice from someone who constantly hasn't helped, then unless the unmentionable person has some grip or financial investment in the club then DC needs to get rid and employ some specialists to get him out of the financial mess he is in. 

If anybody was running a business that was losing huge amounts of money and didn't know what to do to rectify it then they would employ somebody who did. 

Then again they wouldn't have got into such a mess in the first place. After a year of losing money you would rethink where things were going wrong and make changes. 

It's been said many times before but DC's problem seems to be his stubborness to see the HE has got it wrong. Perhaps his "advisor" convinces him it will all come right in the end without changing anything . 

Sorry Mr C, but it won't. Changes are necessary and quickly.

DC's heart in the right place, just a pity his thinking is a bit muddled re other aspects of running the club.

Needs to learn from his mistakes. He still seems willing to invest heavily into the club, to his credit, in spite of all the criticism he receives.

I don’t get this “heart in the right place, bad advice, a bit muddled” malarkey. It makes him out to be some sort of simpleton which even I don’t think he is.

He has not just rolled up 5 mins ago. He has been here years and has shown very little evidence of learning from his (multiple) mistakes.

We have been in a downward spiral for a couple of years and are in a far worse state than when he darkened our doorstep.

He has to change, but leopards.....spots...etc.

He's been led up garden path by some people claiming to be helping him, Chansiri admits he knew little about football when he first came along, I think some of these advisors know nowt themselves. 

 

If Arsenal really are struggling financially there's not much hope for your Rochdale's and Grimsby Town's of this football world.

You can't fault his commitment. He means well and I think he is / was desperate to succeed here. It is clear he was badly advised to begin with and whatever his links are to Doyen / Paixao they haven't helped the club progress. It is pretty evident he did not take FFP into account in his first few seasons here and was banking on a Wolves style quick promotion. 

 

I would say after working in Thailand on and off for nearly a decade, being married to a Thai and also briefly meeting DC and having an informal chat with him and my wife he does exhibit a common trait of people in this country. There is a huge hierarchical system here and people at the very top find it almost impossible to listen or take on advice from somebody who they would deem inferior to them. It isn't an arrogance, but it seems he hasn't adapted his way of working to a football context. I very much doubt he is willing to admit fault and cause himself to lose face with his failings here. Although, this may well turn out to be positive for SWFC in a sense that he will be desperate to make a success of his ownership rather than walking away having failed.

If you booked a holiday and the company cancelled it and you couldn't go, would you tell the company to keep your money?

all income has to contribute towards the running of the club, or should i say an attempt at cutting losses? included in the running is transfer money, no matter how you cut a cake, once eaten it's gone.

 

Everyone us entitled to a refund for a service they have paid for but not received.
