SO LEMME GET THIS STRAIGHT:

 

You’re having a pop at people you disagree with for having a pop at someone they don’t agree with? 

 


He’s not at all. What seems to happen is someone offers an opinion. And rather discuss whether that opinion is correct or not - the person would rather have a pop at the person who gave their opinion.   Biggs has an agenda, Palmer has an agenda, Waddle has an agenda etc etc.

 

They’re just blokes airing concerns like anyone can. Yet rather than debating whether their view is right or wrong, you get people telling them to do their ‘jobs properly’ or ‘I don’t take him seriously because he said this once’. It just distracts away from what is actually being said.

Again, what has this got to do with him offering an opinion on current affairs at Sheffield Wednesday in 2021?

Strange tweet. None of the people except Monk have anything to do with the club. Monk would have had input in signings, but. the club gets offered players, just like most clubs. If it's a head coach we want, then why does it create a worrying picture?

Why do that. I just take it at face value that any sports writer or journalist writes something is taken with a big pinch of salt. Safest way. Im sure the club do likewise. So what your saying along with one or two of your chums on here, we should read this forum but by god dont dare make comment. Id sooner slit my wrists. Anyway, and I might be guilty of this, isn't it about posts and not posters. Your trying to paint me as going round shaking my fist at everyone. Ooooh Betty. Why do you think the The Star newspaper is virtually defunct. . I'll guard against critising Sports Writers or Journos.


The Star is struggling because every local paper is struggling up and down the country. It’s nothing to do with the quality of writers. It’s because the way in which we consume news and information in this day and age has changed hugely.
 

But yes you continue to give grief to local reporters who don’t earn a lot of money. Who are simply trying to cover Sheffield Wednesday and provide content for its supporters. 

We’d be less off with the likes of Biggs, Howson and Miller.

So basically it's everyone in football, and all the journalists, and all the ex-players who are ALL screaming that something is wrong - they're the ones that are wrong about everything


Meanwhile we have the current owner who's got us into a 12 point deduction, sold the stadium, buys dubious players repeatedly and often and calls the fans bad customers - he's the one who's right?

AT LAST--youve realised HE IS THE 1 WHO IS RIGHT. Goodness me ,thats taken some gettibg through to you !!

It can’t just be recruitment as many clubs do not allow the manager sole control. It must be his character and way of operating more generally.

Not shining examples when compared to Liverpool, Man City, Tottenham, Leicester, Everton where the manager is control of the football side of the business 

That’s fair enough, but we are not in the same stratosphere as those clubs. I also do not believe it is black and white there either.

For what it’s worth I think the local journos do a decent job, the standard has definitely picked up in the last year or so and it must be difficult to report on a club  like ours where the chairman gives nothing away until his biannual zoom call blow out. I don’t really consider Biggs a specialist Wednesday reporter anyway he just covers most of South Yorkshire but I don’t think he has any real contact who’s currently at our club. His is mainly opinion based like ours. 
As I said earlier would love a journalist to do a proper investigation job on Chansiri to uncover what is actually going off at the club but fully understand why the local journos can’t and won’t do this.

Absolutely. They’re not BBC Panorama ffs. If they were they’d be paid a lot more.

I keep reading this but Hasenhuttl has a big say in who Southampton sign while we are signing players and don’t even have a manager/coach.

Our manager has a big say. No manager has come out and said any different to that. I think Andre Green is an opportunist move, which just makes sense. I suspect Thommo also have it a nod of approval.

Those clubs listed are light years away from us. In fact most Premier League clubs are.

 

A better comparison would be to compare us to other clubs in this division. How do they operate? I might look into it later but a bet the vast vast majority have some kind of CEO, DOF or technical director. We have none of the above.

Assume it was down to the reality of our FFP case and a points deduction which would completely change the complexity of his summer recruitment and achievable goals for the season ahead

 

Pretty valid concern really


Yeah not arguing with that and I think DC takes some management. But funny no one mentioned this when he left for Newcastle and media even local happy to put the blame on Bruce until now

That was my exact point, if you missed my earlier post. We need those people for the ‘head coach’ principle to work successfully, in my opinion. Please start your review with Brentford and feed back.

I think SB was quite frustrated in having to try and manage DC but if he was so clearly intent on leaving why has Alan Biggs only pulled this card out now? 
 

Under Bruce we made a fair few signings in Iorfa, Harris, Aaron’s, Lazaar Odubajo, which most people would have agreed addressed areas we were lacking. 

 

Yeah! I bet the fat man at Newcastle is a pussycat.

Plus Jos signed Hector. In fact, it was only under Monk where the signings were questionable. Since the money ran out, signings have been a little more targeted, other than the last two windows


Yeah but it seemed to be take what we could get with -12

Quite a few of Bruce’s media allies alluded to it before the Newcastle mess tbf

If Bruce was going to leave anyway why did he come out with the sob story and said he deserved the barrage of abuse ??  
 

Sorry, but not buying this latest story
