I’m starting to feel like we've all been played

He hasn’t raised the expectation level you’re correct 

 

He’s took the basic understanding in football that when you sack a manager you appoint another one and managed to even destroy that so that our expectations now are that we will just appoint Neil Thompson, bring back Sam Hutchinson on a free and get relegated

 

Quite the feat 

Well I won't argue that other than its your own expectations not being met rather than those raised by others 

 

I didn’t have much confidence we would get it right anyway

Dunno - both I guess mate

 

I find the lack of action given our league position absolutely bizarre

Not really, if you accept the coffers are empty. Guess our swfc credit card is maxed out so. That's it.

We're constantly told we're minted 

Even the chairman says he'll spend - then doesn't

Looking at the table we are likely to be relegated.

 

Stop fannying about with foreign coaches and get someone in who can build towards a L1 campaign next season, if we stay up it's a bonus. No point appointing now and then again in the summer.

After reading the report from today’s sun in another thread, I’ve come to the conclusion that EA and AP may have more of a vested interest in the club than just being advisors to the Chairman?

 

Put it this way if the Chairman goes against the advice of one in favour of the other then you would expect the one who’s advice has been snubbed to consider their position?

 

If neither walk then that says it all for me? Get your money on NT while his price is still reasonable is my advice 😀

None of us believe it though. Just got everything on finance.

TBH, can't see many choices other than admin unless, there's 50m down a sofa in Thailand.

Bewildering how their seems to be no leadership.

The irony that the only person chucking foul and abusive language in this thread being Devonstrix is amazing

 

lol

 

Oh dear. You know for a fact that there’s been plenty of abuse thrown at him, some of it on here. You have a pop at me Neil if it suits your agenda. I’m just going to wait to see what the next week brings, because for all we know he’s working hard at trying to bring somebody decent in. I’d have been happy with Cook and it might be him yet, who knows. Ever since the huge Jos mistake, he has brought in three fairly big managerial names, so I’m just hoping he pulls another one out of the hat, although I would prefer it to be somebody who likes to play proper football, unlike Pulis. 

Waits for Neil to dissect and ridicule response.

The only person that says the chairman has had relentless abuse is the chairman himself


(And yourself)

 

Nobody else has seen any

 

Unless of course you can tell us where you personally have seen it


Once again this whole nonsensical distraction of 'the chairman gets relentless abuse' tactic is being discussed rather than the performance of the chairman of Sheffield Wednesday FC

Until someone can show me the relentless abuse that Chansiri has recieved then I'll believe my own eyes and not some fearmongering sheep just trotting out the same old same old stuff to try and make out it's the fans fault we've spent £350 million, sold our stadium, not appointed a new manager, got a 6 point deduction (originally 12), plummeted down the league, now face relegation etc etc


To me that all seems a strange kind of punishment Chansiri is handing out to us for the 'relentless abuse' that he's apparently got (but nobody can ever seem to find)


What's even stranger though is that you're suggesting that all the above tragic issues are the fans fault


(whilst you're also being the only one in the thread using foul and abusive language where the swear filter has to kick in)

The lack of players coming in begs the question are we under some sort of soft embargo too

 

Highly likely. The fact that the accounts are now 6 months, yes 6 months late, suggests serious problems behind the scenes. 

 

At the very best, it all just looks very shady and amateurish. 

 

"Successful businessman" 🤣🤣🤣

No new manager

No new signings of any note 

 

We have been played again haven’t we

 

What a season to make no changes in January and to risk not bringing a new manager in at all

 

This could end very badly 

 

 

 

 

 

I've been ganging on about chansiri being played by his "advisors" for years on here as you know mate, yet the posts were usually removed. This is exactly how these "advisors" operate, they have a long history of this. 

 

We have "advisors" who are being paid by the club to work on our behalf who own sports management companies and their only interest is in parking their own clients at the club to make even more money. 

 

The club is being taken for a ride but out clueless owner cannot see it. 

 

This will only get worse, a lot worse.

Suppose it depends on your interpretation of criticism doesn’t it, someone’s jokey comment is another persons abuse 

On here it is mostly criticism not abuse in my opinion but if you go on other forms of social media he gets dogs abuse as well as racist abuse in some parts

True mate. Truth dies in darkness.

i know litigation is always a danger but we should be on the case of unaccountable “advisors”

DC lovers, like DC, confuse criticism with abuse. It's part of the over emotional abnormal response that they perceive. It causes a string of irrational thoughts and actions and leads to a mass blaming and emotional blackmail of the paying supporter/fan/customer base on a regular basis. The actions by the chairman have been undertaken in such a state of red eyed tantrum that the end results have been short sighted, incorrect and damaging to the club. This includes all areas of the club from squad management, financial planning (which has been the worst in the league by any side) and customer relations. It's just madness. I think people have never seen us be a well run club so they don't understand that we are an embarrassment compared to others.

There isn't any


Let me explain (Devonstrix - you might want to read how this works so you're aware of how you've been played)

Chairman comes to the club
Chairman does a terrible job

Chairman holds press conference or fans forum
Chairman says "I've been subjected to terrible abuse"
Chairman's fans take it as gospel without investigating whether it's actually really happened
Chairman's fans then tell everyone that the chairman has had terrible abuse and criticise our fans

Chairman's fans get asked where they have seen this abuse 
Chairman's fans never ever can produce any evidence of it ever having happened 
Chairman's fans also trot out the 'careful what you wish for' line repeatedly 
Everyone ends up talking about whether there's been any abuse of the chairman or not
Chairman's fans get all upset when they get called out for falling for it
Chairmans fans get all upset when asked to produce any evidence whatsoever that they saw any terrible abuse
Chairman's fans find any excuse to get out of the thread (devonstrix will do it in the next few posts - watch and see)


Chairman walks away from press conference/fans forum, walks down the road whistling with hands in pockets having turned the discussion from his own performance to how's he's the victim of terrible abuse (that nobody can ever find)


Happens
Every
Single
Time
A chairman comes under pressure


It's a well known tactic now and has been used far too often


Example - Dave Allen did the exact same tactic - word for word

Not being funny, but when somebody who has put millions of his own money into the football club and gets dogs abuse from a large proportion of the supporters/customers, it’s not the biggest surprise in the world when said owner considers taking his ******** ball home. 

It is when such wilful actions would devalue his assets, potentially alienate his employees and drive away his customers. No capable or even adequate business owner would chose to do this
