Nothing will shift my support for Sheffield Wednesday.
Over the years we have had bad owners, bad managers and god awful players.Also, rarely, good players and the odd decent coach/manager.Aged , nearly 72,I was taken to see the Owls since I was 3.
I had hoped before I drew my last breath that we would be in the top league. My Grandson is now aged 6 and I believe he will be lucky if he sees it.
Don't lose your support for the Owls. We deserve better than we are getting on all levels.We are the club. No one else, currently employed by Sheffield Wednesday from owner to programme seller can better that claim.
On a night, a season of total shame, I ask you to please continue supporting SWFC for the club are worth it. We owe it to those who served the club through our history and not the charlatans of the present.  

Fuck 'em. This city will always be ours.

We are a shambles and anyone thinking otherwise needs a head wobble.

But of course I care what happens, like a good many on here I probably care more than is healthy for me.

I got accused of enjoying the mess we are in just so I could say told you so. That is so wrong but people can air their views as they see.

So no it is more anger, probably its more an air of resignation as well, that despite having a line in the sand, the potential for a fresh approach when DC came in, the brief flirtation with success, where are we now £100m put in later.

Our future league position decided off the pitch not on it, a hopeless manager, a poor squad of players, a crumbling stadium and not fit for purpose training facilities.

That is the legacy of 100m but some will hang on to the joy of a day out at Wembley to say all is fine

I have been critical and will continue to do so because it should have been a better legacy. The biggest fear is what is the plan to redress this. Because if you can see it you are a better person than me.

So yes I have been critical because each wrong step I thought we were making was with this fear in mind of where it would and indeed has lead to.

OK it was borderline stuff but the 3 teams currently relegated have one recurring theme. Hull, Charlton and Wigan, a clusterfuck off the field.

Happy clapping for 4 years more than Emre

Well said Bricat.


To add to your comment MK I'm pretty concerned that if DC throws in the towel what owner are we likely to get to succeed him. Whilst DC has simply been naive I don't think he has intentions to asset strip whereas we know there are other less scrupulous out there.

I will try and raise spirits a bit......

The second half of this season has been awful. Statistically it must be one of the worst half seasons ever, but we have had worse and are still here.

Everything seems shit at the moment but it always does after a defeat. A 1-0 win last night (which could easily have happened) and we wouldn’t be feeling this bad.

Yes the off field stuff is concerning and I agree with MK that there seems to be a lack of plan and direction. But if the results were OK all that wouldn’t seem to matter as much. It has to start with the manager and either Monk will get sacked or he will sort it out, that is my genuine view. We have a chance now to sort out the squad for the first time in ages.

We could very well win this case with the EFL and the sword of Damocles will be removed. It’s hard to be optimistic but, even if we do get a points deduction we deal with it and move on, it’s done.

It won’t be long before we can get back to Hillsborough and we all know that, no matter how crap we are, we will all still have that buzz when we go back.

Stay positive and remember that, no matter who owns the club, who the manager is and how crap or great the players are, the true soul of the club lives within all of us and no one can take that away.

Right, that's your jokey response out of the way, Ben...what do you really believe? 

I ask you will Galway bate Mayo? Not if they have Willie Joe...they haven't a hope of beating Mayo!

Everyone is feeling the normal end of seasons blues After our god awful run with an EFL charge over our head sucking out any standard gallows humour. Normally everyone of us would have something to look forward to.. new season, fresh players, new grounds to visit and overall a new chance regardless of relegation or not!

What’s compounded us all into the ground is none of us can find anything to look forward to as none of us know what’s going to happen due to the EFL charges still not concluded. Plus the prospect of half a season behind closed doors hardly fills any fan with joy!

So for all the “clubs in mess” attitudes out there I ask you apply some rationality and take a step back and appreciate these are extraordinary events at the moment and so what we are feeling right isn’t normal by any measure of any end of season outcome.

He’ll go, he’ll get bullied out of the club, to be honest I don’t blame him with our fuckin clowns. We deserve L1 and L2, never been a more inappropriate slogan as WAWAW, little c**t dribbles get a sniff of the PL and can’t get their heads around FFP & P+S stopping us spending so they racially abuse the chairman and his family on social media.

That next season well be in the Championship and will gain promotion.

We're having a massive clear out, perhaps a season too late but that's due to having to let contracts run down for players with no transfer value.

We couldn't afford to cancel and then replace them with new players due to limitations caused by P&S.

We've effectively got a clean slate to hire hungry young players again.

We'll go up

Why is everyone assuming there’s no plan? The release of players and links to younger players suggests there’s a plan.

I’ll wait and see how it pans out before I throw all my toys out of the pram

My thoughts entirely bri. I don't know what my Father and Grandfather would think of this mess. I think we are probably the oldest on here? I'm approaching 71.

That’s a fair point. As much as I think Garry Monk is a terrible manager, he’s hit the nail on the head in terms of what is needed and has/is trying to change it. We’ve binned off the older and less reliable players, we have identified that we need to target high quality youngsters.

My point is ultimately that is whether he, or anyone else is given the chance to do so. This all needs to be backed by the owner. We still need to invest money in the squad (remember how short of players we are now). Yes, the market will be depressed, but there is still going to be a significant outlay needed to rebuild.

If we, as I expect, get around the FFP element. Then, we could, if the owner is still interested, have another go. Just not following the same strategy.
