Is this the new guy that's previously worked for Elev8?

 

Sounds like a great appointment.

There's been more positive communication out of the club since this fellow has been given his head.

Agree on both points mate but he deserves a chance I think.

I'll reserve judgement.

Or one final, desperate roll of the dice when all other avenues of finance have dried up 

I think desperate is precisely the right word at the moment, I have a very bad feeling about this situation.

Just to point out that we are paying out more in players wages than we are getting in income, even more so this season. So its the chairman who writes the cheque from his bank account every month. Obviously not always on time recently.

If he doesnt keep stumping up we would go into admin. 

The fans won't be filling the cap mate. We would need a masochistic buyer with deep pockets.

This isn't a comment on his competence. Its just fact.

We f*cked that bloke who tried to steal WAWAW off.

 

It's not all doom and gloom you know.

So did Chansiri suggest this? Or the new Chief Operating Officer?

You would think the new COO.

The 'new' COO isn't new at all.  He is an internal hire, bumped up in job title to try and take some of the pressure off Chansiri.

Everybody on this forum is bound by the same common interest and desire. A love of Sheffield Wednesday and the best interests of the football club.

 

Unfortunately, the overwhelming evidence is that being pro-Chansiri is no longer compatible. It can’t be. There isn’t a defence left in favour of Chansiri or under the context of what’s best for SWFC.

 

Like i said in another thread, DC represents a challenge to what SWFC even is to us or what that love looks like. If it’s the material things like the badge (that he’s changed), the kit (that he’s toyed around with) or the stadium (that he’s plastered his name allover), then people need to start coming to terms with losing it. Those things are his now, to be handed to his son. 

 

There is zero chance of there being anything left for him to 'hand' to his son.

Maybe consider that players are tax payers too. 50% of their millions to be precise. 

Your missing the point mate,of course they are tax payers if on PAYE..thats not the issue,its not the players wanting furlough,its the Employer.!!still doesnt make it right,the whole point of being a football chairman and Club owner and agreeing these wages,is that you can afford to pay them.

 

HM Govt should not be baling out Football Clubs,to pay people 30 or 40 grand a week its not what its there for

To be fair though maybe we could have afforded them more if we were able to get crowds in and get income...  But seeing as we havent been able to do that, the government furlough was to help companies (Yes SWFC is a company) that have had their income affected by the pandemic.

 

I dont see how this is a story, SWFC is the employer if they want to put people on furlough and it is allowed just like every other employee that has had to go on furlough and had not choice but these over paid useless players think they are better than that, better than the rest of us....  After the season they have just played they should be hanging their heads in shame.
