Paul Cook “ If you’re not allowed to manage, then you’re an employee and not a manager.”

Chansiri has himself told us repeatedly now that people have come in with offers to buy the club

He has, then immediately becomes evasive and says he hasn't put a price on the club. I'm starting to think he's made it up...which is a shame as I'd like him to sell.

Again I say an offer could be £1. Or £50 or £1m. Not all offers are good offers.  



Could have been 500 million and a promise of genuine investment in all areas of the ground, the academy and players

That’s not how business works mate

 

People look for opportunities and a chance to get something when it’s up for grabs with loads of potential

 

The potential here is massive 

 

Please just think it through before posting this nonsense 


It’s just an opinion that differs to yours. It’s not nonsense, nor is your opinion. They are just different. Can’t people have different opinions nowadays without the other side calling them out for it.

It's got to the point now where I don't believe a word he Says and our biggest danger of relegation is Chansiri himself firstly for not appointing the right manager but then for not allowing the chosen one to manage. DC if you read this get Paul Cook in now and let him manage and just do your best to financially back him, that's what a good chairman does.

It just rattles my cage when people post stuff like 'careful what you wish for' about the club's owners and chairmen over the years trying to spread fear and doubt when in reality there's never been a single instance when Sheffield Wednesday (or any other club) hasn't managed to secure a new owner and new chairman


It's baseless nonsense designed to make fans worry so much they have to agree with the person who posted it that the only way Wednesday can exist is under the current owner/chairman - which is NOT true

Hate this 

 

It’s clear things are wrong here but soon as anyone external points it out we get bitter comments like this 

 

Sad times


It’s not bitter though is it - it’s true.

 

As is the fact that we are a shitshow.

 

It doesn’t have to be either / or.

This will probably get deleted but I'm going to post it anyway 

Chansiri is the frontman for a consortium as was first reported in the press when he took over. 

You know who and his cohort are the consortium IMO.

It could have. I genuinely don’t know, maybe it was from a genuine buyer with a realistic price. Maybe it was from Colin from S2 on a wind up. We don’t know?
 

But saying that because our ever so honest chairman said there were offers as evidence that there are still folk interested in buying us at a sensible price is a bit of a leap in my opinion. until there are real alternatives he is all we have.
 

If we stay up, if we clear the books and if fans come back we are hugely more viable option to buy. But there are a lot of If’s in that.

Load of crap. Look at whos in charge then you will find the answer. So on that basis, who as got the job. 


He knew the deal before he went begging for the job twice.

 

Now he hasn’t got the job apparently it’s an issue for him again.

 

As I’ve already said, we have major off the field issues, but don’t think that Cook isn’t our manager because he walked away from it due to those issues.

 

He’s just saving a bit of face. That’s all. And I don’t blame him for it whatsoever

Both sides have a point BUT if you think anyone is going to buy SWFC as the moment in middle of financial uncertainty and whilst the pandemic is raging then you are deluded.

 

Club had next to zero income, bugger all room to play with in FFP and only a handful of players who can be sold for a fee. 

 

Only thing that matters short term is avoiding the disaster if relegation to league 1 and being stuck there for years under salary cap rules.

In normal times would agree with you, but not normal in times look at issues Wigan administrator is having securing a buyer, depends how bad you are prepared for things to get in order to get the change.

I’m not sure that’s what they were suggesting. In a response to someone saying ‘he’s gone the sooner the better’ that sooner isn’t always better. And one sooner is us wound up and in admin. Him having the ground and us having nothing. 
 

There’s other scenarios obviously but that’s a very real one. I’m not sure in current circumstances; relegation battle, losing a fortune, fans not allowed in that any real buyers may be put off.

 

Next season I’m hoping many things improve, and that makes us more salable to buyers, more attractive to players and managers etc too. 
 

But maybe I’m too optimistic. You’d have thought a few decades of let downs would temper my hope 🙂

Again I like to think Neil is being optimistic rather than deluded. But I agree it’s not really a sellers market right now with buyers greatly put off and many many clubs available due to the crisis.

Well if you think there would be lots of investors wanting to take over a club in the current financial climate and with our debts, I think you're sadly deluded.


Aye

 

Because it’s not like there’s half a dozen league clubs mid takeover at present is it 

 

Clearly deluded
