This Coventry debacle is beyond a joke, could well be our game going the same way on 31st August ….. just get them fined, deduct some points and play their home games as away fixtures until sorted. They should have been investigated last season for the number of times fans ran on their pitch causing games to be extended and stealing points in that added time

That's one of the relegation spots sorted.
"To dictate the pace and course of a game, a player has to be blessed with awesome qualities. Those who have accomplished it on a regular basis can be counted on the fingers of one hand – Pelé, Maradona, Best, Di Stefano, and Tom Finney"
Can we persuade Hemmings family to invest in the Ipswich Manager. He's the next big thing. Otherwise keep our powder dry until Moyes gets the heave-ho at Hammers. It's coming he might want to come home
Many Wednesday supporters who are critical of Chansiri also appreciate the amount of money he has put into the club...and it is not contradictory.
Some years ago I was told a story that when Victorian establishment families had an idiot son what they would do to get them safely out of the way is to buy them a commission in the British Army...and what wealthy Thai families now do is to buy the son a football club.
A lot of the money that Chansiri has put into the club has simply been squandered on ludicrous signings and wages as well as paying compensation to sacked managers. He appears to have interfered with every aspect of the running the club. In the meantime the deteriorating infrastructure has not been touched....the training ground is no longer of a sufficent standard and the ground capacity has been cut because of safety concerns.
It was apparent to everybody that the side that Darren Moore got out of L1 needed strengthening...but he wasn't allowed to bring in the players he wanted (one was Storey) and he walked. Next thing a load of players and a manager are recruited nobody has heard of....and who turn out to be useless. (The new boss, highly rated coach in Germany, has gone back to the old guard and got a draw and a win so far).
Hence I understand the fans sentiments at Hillsbro...every right to be dissatisfied. ---
The issue with former PNE shareholders I know is not losing their money (were told when buying there would be no dividends) is being cut out of the club...Hemmings compulsorily buying £4 shares when issued for ? what was it. 10p a share......and then having no say/ownership in their club. There was never any need for Hemmings to acquire 100%, having got to 90%, other than taking the club off AIM and into private family ownership and excluding long-standing fans from having any insight or say or ability to question how the club is run....and in view of a lot of subsequent decision making, such as the appointment of Maurice Lindsay, the Ingol fiasco, Ridsdale's legal status those fans have had every good reason to continue to be unhappy with aspects of the way the club is owned and run.
The only thing in common between Wednesday situation and PNE is private ownership and the exclusion of fans from rigorous scrutiny and any say in what goes on.
