Split it how you like but between the 1 June 2015 and 31 July 2018, Wednesday agreed to pay other clubs £37.243m for player registrations. There were others smaller deals  and I may have forgotten  some but the annual amounts and major deals I can recall each year were 


15/16 £12.666m (FF, Matias, Jaoa)

16/17 £11.629m (AA, Jones, Hooper perm, Winall)

17/18 £12.948m (Rhodes perm, JVA, Pelupessy)

 
Hooper permanently was in January 2016 I think. 

16/17 should include Reach as well. He was £4m+

I’m not rewriting history, I’m just highlighting where the chairman said that if ticket prices remained high, we would see a continued level of investment in the first team with the eventual goal of promotion to the Premier League.

 

He also said he could reduce ticket prices but the consequence of this would be the possible sale of first team players and more youth promoted to the first team squad.

 

Like most fans I took him on his word and voted for option A.

 

With hindsight he should have probably added a third option where we keep ticket prices high, don’t sell any of our players, let them go for free instead and promote more youth into the first team squad.... although I’m not sure many fans would have gone for that.

 

As I said, he shouldn’t make promises he can’t keep, it just p***es fans off who can barely afford to attend matches as it is and leaves them feeling short changed.

Your own fault for believing him.

So we can't afford Murphy, but we have positively p***ed away fortunes on the likes of Abdi, JR and VA not to mention mouth-watering amounts, no doubt, on legal fees cos DC couldn't sell the stadium to himself without problems.

Enough to make you weep.

Actually, that's not accurate (sorry to be pedantic). We can spend just as much. The trick is to stop treating the club like a "family" (us fans are the cousins that get treated appallingly btw) and start running it as a football club and chuffing sell players when you can raise revenue and identify appropriate replacements. Something that in five years DC has succeeded doing once (Lucas Joao)

We'd need to buy players of the right age though. Buy players at 22-24 and sell them after a couple of years for massive profit, Only problem is DC has proven he doesn't know when to sell. After the failure to cash in on Fessi, you'd have thought he'd have made sure we got the 10-15m for Reach when he was on fire, but no...

Then he shouldn’t have made the promise if he couldn’t keep it.

 

A reminder of what we were told....

 

A) Would you prefer the prices at Sheffield Wednesday across the board, for example Season Tickets, matchday tickets, official merchandise, corporate hospitality, were reduced to previous eras? The consequence of this would be the sale of key senior players, regular promotion to the first team of academy youngsters and a reduced level of investment.

Answer: Yes 29.94% No 70.06%

B) Alternatively, would you prefer the club to build on the current level of investment, maintain the pricing structure, and extend our ongoing strategy geared towards promotion to the Premier League.

Answer: Yes: 70.14%  No: 29.86%

I think Trump, BJ and chums are proving you no longer need to do anything you said you would do!

I didn't reply because you're pulling out irrelevant stats!   Some from 2 seasons ago ST prices and away prices!

 

Put the latest POTG prices for home fans from all Championship clubs, that's where the myth will be busted, in fact the myth will be smashed to smithereens!!

 

So the season ticket prices we charge are irrelevant?

Yes the stats are from 2 seasons ago but they show us as the 2nd most expensive. Unless you think all other clubs in the division have upped their prices to match ours this is relevant, do you have any stats to this effect?

Like I said, don't waste your time arguing with Limit, he can't hear you for all that sand above his head.

From 2 seasons ago yes!

 

And yes they have, look it up.

Why don't you provide the stats then and 'blow the argument out of the water?' The answer is you can't because you don't have stats to back up your side of the debate, you just keep repeating the same thing without foundation.
