Sheffield Wednesday Response to the Supporters' Trust Open Letter


Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

As you may remember the SWFC Supporters' Trust wrote an open letter to Mr Chansiri in later December. The letter was signed by nearly 6,000 people. The letter is available via the link:

https://www.swfctrust.co.uk/news/open-letter

 

The club have emailed an official response, which you can read below:

 

"We thank you for sending the open letter and are pleased to confirm a revised strategy on supporter engagement as we navigate some of the most challenging times in the history of our club.

The last thing we want is for a single supporter to feel disengaged or disconnected, particularly during a crisis that continues to engulf our city, the country and indeed the world.

Every one of our loyal supporters can be assured that we are trying our level best to meet these challenges head on and we agree that a new engagement strategy is welcome for all parties moving forward.

To that end, we have devised a formula that we believe will provide a firm foundation for future  relations, incorporating full engagement across all age groups, backgrounds and recognised SWFC fan organisations.

In keeping with our open door policy, we will endeavour to answer all questions presented in a communal, structured meeting environment.

We look forward to introducing this strategy in due course and in the meantime, as always, we thank you all for your support and hope to welcome you back to Hillsborough as soon as it is safe to do so."

Unfortunately says nowt about owt - as usual .

I think you’ll find that’s called acknowledgment 


and what I took from that is they will be announcing how they are going to engage when they have formalised plans to do

Sounds to me that Chansiri is willing to move closer to the Trusts requests will be interesting to see how things develop.  Been a critic of the Trust but that sounds more positive so I tip my hat to the trust

I know a few people that preferred the old shareholders meetings, but whatever they want to call these, and as I said previously, the government told EFL clubs that they had to meet with fans (not saying "engage" unless through taking the P) at least twice a year, yet as far as I can remember we had nothing at all last season. BTW the season was nearly over when Covid stopped it so we should have had at least one meeting by then. 

 

The club are only going to do what they were told to do before DC spat out his dummy! He thinks that he does not have to answer to anybody. I went to these fake mmetings when MM was still in charge but only attended the last one so that I could watch them squirm when I asked them a question that I knew they would not be prepared to answer. I got so sick of watching grown men fawning over highly paid mercenaries, with no affiliation with Wednesday other than their salaries, that I stopped going. I think DC then started smaller meetings with people who had been vetted by the club to keep the government happy, but did away with that altogether too so he hopefully the EFL have given him a warning, hopefully not in the shape of a season load of cr@p referees that can't wait to give our players cards, or the opposition penalties!

I'm not sure you're aware of the whole picture by the looks of it

 

This isn't anything 'new' at all that the club are offering


Not new at all

There's nothing positive in it whatsoever until we see something positive actually done by the club off the back of it


Relax.... let it play out... but promise that if nothing comes of it you wont' be as excited as you are this time around
