Completed it, but sense it might be used to criticize DC and pricing. He will price things in whatever way he thinks is best, after investing tens of millions I think he has that right.

To be fair, our POTG prices are on a par with most in this league, the wet through wobbly headed gimps on sites like ‘stalk and twatter just make shit up to bash owt SWFC. 

It’s down to you now Garry!!! OH, AND FUCK THE EFL!!!!

Hello,

I thought I’d continue this thread, rather than start a new one.

We’re delighted to say that the first survey we ran, which looked at club governance and ticket prices, received over 1,500 responses, which was fantastic.

The results are fascinating and really give an insight into the feelings of many supporters towards the club. Here are some key findings:

• 50% of fans believe season tickets offer poor value for money
• 92% of fans believe matchday tickets offer poor value for money
• £20 would be a fair price on the Kop, according to 53% of fans
• 68% of fans say the playing squad has improved under Dejphon Chansiri
• 49% say SWFC do not value them as fans
• 78% disagree that SWFC are run in a sustainable way
• 52% of fans uncomfortable with sale of Hillsborough
• 45% of fans agree SWFC are a community club

You can read the full report here

We encourage you to read the full report as it will add more context to the above findings and is packed with practical suggestions from the fanbase.

As part of our ongoing commitment to consult with the fanbase, we have now launched a second survey focusing on the matchday experience and, importantly, what actions and activities you would like to see from the Sheffield Wednesday Supporters’ Trust.

You can take the second survey here

I also just wanted to address the previous post by Tylluan and other comments. We are volunteers and share communication duties depending on availability, but yes this is Tom Hocking posting now.

It was always planned to do a series of surveys, though we have merged some topics due to timescales. We felt that, rather than rely on anecdotal evidence about some topics fans may believe to be big issues at the club (that may well exist only in our social circles/bubble), we would collect hard data which would give the Trust’s interim board clear guidance on what the majority of fans thought. Sometimes the loudest voices are not the ones in the majority, so we felt that was important.

We also endeavoured to get the survey out to as wide a range of people as we could given the lockdown restrictions. We know that some on this forum are hostile towards the setting up of the Trust (as they are on Owlstalk, Facebook, Twitter…) but we’d like your views on the issues anyway because we want the Trust the represent Sheffield Wednesday fans, not Sheffield Wednesday Fans Who Agree With Us.

Please don’t take the “lack of challenge”, as it has been put, as us ignoring any criticism – it’s actually quite the opposite. We feel it’s vital that the Trust takes on board the views of everyone, particularly at a time where we are building its foundations. In that way, getting drawn into individual back-and-forths on forums and social media, where we seek to “defend” a position which is still developing as we consult with the fanbase, seems counter-intuitive. People are welcome to say whatever they want – whether they choose to frame it like Tylluan or Reesh1867.

I obviously disagree that the survey was “preloaded” – for every question there were options to respond positively or negatively, and we also included many areas to write in practical suggestions. We’ve since received offers of help from people with more experience in surveys and data collection, so hopefully the second one won’t receive that criticism, whether it was valid or not – please fill it in and give us feedback, we are always looking to improve the Trust’s work.

It’s also not about outright criticising or praising the club though, it’s about engaging positively in continued dialogue. We feel that a Trust affiliated to the FSA will offer a structured approach to that, helping the club to gauge fan opinion as much as it helps fans feed back to the club. If enough people feel the same, then the Trust will grow. If they don’t, it won’t.

We want to see what people really feel about both the club and the idea of a Trust, what they want to see and what they are worried about – then hopefully put into place the building blocks that allay those concerns. Of course, central to that is that if you like the idea of a Trust, but don’t like the people involved and the way things are being done, join up (when you can, memberships to be launched soon we hope) and vote for people you do want to be involved.

We will obviously correct factual errors, though. We are not working with Wednesdayite. As was said previously, after some social media posts from the Wednesdayite account we decided to have a private conversation (rather than a social media slanging match, which helps no one) and agreed to let each other do our own things but that maybe, potentially there might be the odd community project further down the line where helping each other for the benefit of a good cause could possibly be useful. But that’s ultimately down to the Trust’s members, the board they elect and the projects they wish to pursue.

I’d also just say that at the moment the interim board are simply that – a group of people (many of us didn’t know each other until forming the Trust – hence the team building mentioned in the minutes!) who felt a Trust would be a positive thing for Sheffield Wednesday fans, so are trying to set one up. There is no guarantee that anyone will stand for election once the ground work has been done, that’s up to individuals themselves (and I wouldn’t pretend to speak for them on that), and anyone else is welcome to also stand.

Anyway, sorry for the long post. I hope you find the results interesting and fill out the second survey.

Is that a 'no', then? Bigsmile

We must not give opposition teams hope. We have to kill them.

Twats have just made me realise that I have recently slipped from being in the 55 to 64 range and I'm now firmly in the 65 to 74 range, fucking gutted.

Stick your trust and leave the club alone, it is far from perfect but the last thing it needs is a load of fucking agitators descending on it ala Blue Lives Matter or similar.

Lifted from the Trust strategy.


Encouraging SWFC to support community teams, including an SWFC Women’s Team, as a key element of the club community engagement strategy


We already have an official (and funded) Sheffield Wednesday Ladies Fc doing excellent work in the community, promoting girls and women's football from under 9s to under 18s and two adult sides.

You can tick that one off your list.

How does 1500 responses give a voice for the average 20odd thousand that attend games and those that dont attend?

Have they asked Chansiri if he'll kneel for BLM and if not, why not?

Should we throw Ozzie Owl into the river as Ozzie is clearly a racist name?

How many BAME people are on the trust's board?

These are the questions fans demand to know the answers to.

We hold steering groups don’t we, DC puts his head in the firing line for that, fans can ask questions, DC answers em, he’s done it a few times, why the fuck do we need another “trust” to do something that’s already been done?!???

This absolutely stinks of yet another set of c**ts who are only interested in becoming “celeb” fans.

Once again.....fuck off!

It gives an idea, same as any questionnaire. Never going to get everybody in Britain replying to a census but still gives you a general view at least.
