THE CHANSIRI PRESS BRIEFING THREAD


Recommended Posts

I thought it would be bad, but this truly exceeded expectations.  Totally unprofessional with regard to Pulis, both in his initial criticisms (just let it go and move on) and the expectation that his appointment would bring attacking football.  The appointment alone is enough to highlight Chansiri’s ineptitude.  What followed was mostly rambling nonsense, he’s a fool and the club are screwed.

Firstly you have to give DC credit for doing this there aren’t many chairman around doing 2 hour q&a’s with journalists especially when he knows it’s going to be a rough ride, so hats off to him for that.

Hes made a lot of mistakes has Chansiri and I still don’t think he gets Sheffield folk and Wednesdayites as a fan base as a whole yet. He’s right some are overly negative but he should be looking at why the negative comments and look to ways of sorting those issues. IMO his biggest single issue that’s holding him back is he is based abroad and at the current moment cannot be in Sheffield. For somebody that likes to be a hands on owner that’s no good for any club/manager/employee. He’s detached yet wants to run it hands on, he can’t gauge a mood of current feeling from the other side of the world other than social media and fans forums like this which don’t always paint a true reflection either way. He desperately needs someone based at the club running the day to day especially whilst he’s marooned in Thailand and a CEO or DOF to help him has to be a must. Even if it’s just a middle man between management/players and the owner himself. I struggle to untethered he is so against this idea?

 

If he’s not prepared to highlight his shortcomings and resolve them this circus will just go on and on.

Good to have gotten a new advisor in, but a bit confused why the club under Chansiri has always seemed to depend on personal advisors instead of placing people in permanent roles. Surely he has to see that it's in the best interests of the club to get people properly embedded and able to work independently rather than continuing to run everything through him. Seemingly creating a very dysfunctional management structure.

 

Sadly, there are very few people in football who actually care about building good back offices, most of them are in it to line their own pockets, but it's shocking that we haven't at least been able to appoint someone to run day to day finances.

If you think about it - what Chansiri just did is a totally identical presser to Dave Allen when he was here

 

Fans are to blame

I'm getting grief on social media

My family are getting abuse on social media

I put money into this club
What are the critics doing for this club?
I'm the one who stands to lose my money

It's the managers fault
It's the players fault
I speak the truth
Fans don't like hearing the truth

 etc etc


Literally word for word point by point


Identical

you forgot abuse of family

To put £millions into a football club to see it in it’s current state, with no light at the end of the tunnel, with everyone pointing the blame at you, must be incredibly upsetting and frustrating. I do sympathise with him re this.

 

I believe Chansiri’s intentions are good, although this isn’t praise, why wouldn’t they be.

 

If anyone is kicking off or whining about their season ticket refund – just wait like most are, you’re obviously going to get it.

 

Fans vent on social media when things are bad, they go over the top when things are good, this is no different to any social media community – Chansiri using this as ammo against the fans is extremely naïve, and the suggestion the negativity is influencing potential buyers is just insulting and so clearly false.

 

Doesn’t seem to realise “fans” are different people with different backgrounds, views and levels of intelligence. Expressing any point using the “fans told me to do X”, “fans wanted Y” is highly concerning and maybe shows how out of touch he really is.

 

I’m indifferent to the Pulis situation and comments, his criticisms are one side of the argument.

 

If it’s true that when we submit the accounts FFP issues are resolved, why not elaborate on that point as an overwhelming positive? With any meeting or appraisal the aim should always be to end with a way forward. Very hard to take this at face value.

 

My conclusion – unless he is willing to hand over day to day controls to a competent CEO and management team, we really need him out our club as soon as possible

Someone who doesn't actually put any money into the club but spreads negativity and discontent (i.e. those who use illegal streams to watch games and then take to Twitter to slag Wednesday off).

Yes but we have already put money into the club

What a one-sided, unrealistic, almost megalomaniac point of view. Can I say that?

Agree.  The social media fan is also the fan who pre COVID went to games and now pays to watch Wednesday on IFollow.  Not pumping millions of pounds into the club like you DC but that is part of the problem.  You don’t value fans spending their hard earned brass on the Club. Is something lost in translation or is it Total arrogance? 

 

BTW, thanks for the coverage this morning Neil.  Top notch.

Well. Tnat was a well-wasted 45mins of my time. Could we as posgters, keep our gobs shut until the chap has finished. By all means , pull the chap to pieces, it's wht a forum is for. But for heavens sake, let the chap say his piece first.

As for 'out Chansiri', you have now got the opportunity. Simply put your money where your mouth is! And expect it to be near if not well into 10 figures.

Dont be silly,& stop 'happy clapping'...thats not the fans contribution...we supply the passion & the support,the demand for the football product....The Club/Chairman provide the finances & the leadership....to best utilize said demand,sell sponsorship,TV rights,etc...

 

Each has a completely different role,...but as we have seen in the lockdown equaly important.'put your money where your mouth is' would be a suitable repast to a Multi millionaire....no one else

 

Football without 'fans' is passionless & sterile....would wither on the vine without us being there.....

Football Chairman know that Football Clubs in general are/can be loss making & come into it with their eyes open.....but they have the money to choose to come into a Club,sometimes with disastrous consequences...

I always find it hilarious that people are hurt that Chansiri isn’t pandering or apologising to us fans.

 

When do business owners ever apologise to their customers? When has Richard Branson ever apologised? Michael O’Leary? Has Boris Johnson apologised to the public at any point in the last 12 months? 

People seem engraved in this culture that football is somehow different from all that. Chairman’s have absolutely no affiliation with their club, they’re not a fan. Chansiri isn’t a Sheffield native residing in Dore. He’s here to make money and doesn’t see it even 1% the same as us. When he’s criticised he’ll get defensive. Whether that’s personality or culture, but how can you honestly expect this to change after 5 years?

The Pulis stuff might have been entertaining, but it was childish, pointless and worst of all totally unprofessional.

 

You employ a very well connected and experienced English manager then sack him after 10 games and badmouth him in public.  The only result is you won't get another decent manager, you will be marked as toxic.  The reason owners and managers don't talk about each other after sackings isn't because of non disclosure agreements, its simply because it damages both parties.

 

This guy is just a child in a mans body and doesn't have the first idea of what he is doing.
