You missed the bit where he said relegation would be a good thing and he was ok with that 

Fans who think this are just as much of the problem as Chansiri and Monk!

He's only just been allowed to bring in his own backroom staff FFS. Do you think it's a good idea to let a manager bring in his own staff and then sack him?

If the results arent good yes.  I was one who wanted to give Monk a chance rather than get rid last season. We have got worse, not better. I cant see how he can turn it round

 Another loss coming tonight. How long do you want to give him? When would you pull the trigger?

Fair points. 

At least until Christmas IMO. I think we'll give them a game tonight.

Not at all. But equally I'm not happy with the constant hand wringing and complaining. I'd like to see us stick together and dig our way out of this as a team.

That's because his apologists said that he hadn't been able to bring in his own players. Then when he did and we're still rubbish, the excuse is that they're not his players and he had no say in their signings - but if they'd come in and done well and we were winning games, of course they'd be Monk's magical signings. 

I don’t think anybody can / will argue that he’s been allowed to bring players in, or his own backroom team. 
From what I read, mainly on here, the calibre of player we have been able to bring in is mediocre at best. But they should still be good enough to amass more points than they have so far. 
We are a dire club from top to bottom.

Have you SEEN em?


Even Monk's given  up on them already


There's only Kachunga playing tonight who wasn't in the side last season

 No mate. I’m a part time / non Uber/ realist fan, who’s got better things to do. 
 

I just come on here now to play devils advocate. What’s your reason for the massochism.

I think it's the absolute lack of quality we've brought in to be fair mate


There was loads of hype around these signings - I fell for it big time


In reality they're like first division players and most are unfit/injured too


We even signed one with a leg broken in two places and who had metal pins in his leg when he signed for us

That Dunkley signing amplified what a rotten shower that are, charging fans top dollar and serving up unwanted seconds. 
 

I genuinely feel for those that bleed Wednesday, the phrase mugged off has never been so underused.

 

Cant wait for this big announcement. I bet he’s got his PR team proof reading it, trying to put a positive spin on it. Unfortunately, you can’t polish a turd.

You didn’t fall for anything. Like many, you took a positive view and wanted it to be justified. No harm in optimism. 
 

But the reality is, optimism is all we bloody well have.

Well done Dom Howson for keeping the pressure up:

 

Keith Andrews, quoted in Football League Podcast, "Not enough, for me, has been made of this week in terms of how bad it's actually been. Are you telling me that Sheffield Wednesday's squad isn't as good as those three teams? Luton, Rotherham and Wycombe, with the finances they're working at.

"The recruitment that's gone on at Sheffield Wednesday in the last couple of months, I think, has been impressive. He's been backed and they've brought in some good players, so I don't quite buy it.

"I would not be happy at all if I was involved with Sheffield Wednesday over the last week, that needs to vastly improve."

Keith Andrew's has always been a full weight bell...who gives a flying what he thinks

Yes, but I doubt they're on the same kind of contracts as the players who've left in the past few seasons. At least I hope they're not, otherwise we'll be hit with another points deduction before too long!

 

When I look at our squad, I see a mid-table squad, assuming we don't suffer too badly with injuries. Once a few key players are out for any length of time, we're in major trouble. Whether that's enough to keep us up this season, I have my doubts.

 

As I say, Chansiri has backed Monk in the sense of getting bodies through the door, and I'm sure they're the best we could attract given the circumstances, but they not the kind of signings to help an average Championship team overcome a points deduction...unless the manager is able to pull off something special.

 

And as you say, those last three results have been embarrassing - nothing special is happening right now, is it?

Nothing special until tonight... but that's the Wednesday way.

 

There is a glimmer of hope that Monk is listening and he may survive. No one dimensional looking for the target man on the far post. when we don't have, one tonight...
