I think he will get to the end of the season and it depends on where we finish. Personally I think 8th to 11th will see him keep his job any lower might be a problem for him

The owners are not stupid, I beieve they will recognise what some of our fans fail to see.
SG has real ability which is obvious from what he has achieved with a low quality squad and the minimal support that MM has admitted he has struggled to provide him with this past 12months.
He has got the team competing against teams (and managers!) with much bigger and better resources and at the same time overseen the improvement in the general football health of the club.
They will, unlike some of our supporters, look beyond recent results and recognise that he has been squeezing every last drop out of our squad for a long time and at times the well has run dry, and the true limitations of our team are then highlighted.
I think and hope will be given the backing he needs to show what he is capable of.

hOWler I don't totally disagree with what you are saying, my opinion is that SG while as you say has done wonders with what he has at his disposal we never look an attacking threat, OK we have scored 5 in the last 2 matches but we are not consistent, quite often we are set up to stop the other teams from scoring. You must agree that finishing in the top half of the table will be progress, what I am saying is that we need that step up, can SG provide it with financial clout, we will see. I like Stuart Gray and will continue to support him and our new owners whatever happens

My view is that after a takeover there is normally an agenda to get a 'name' as manager. I think he has done a great job (Milan included) because we have moved forward every season.

But, with new owners and more resources available the expectation will be that the rate of progress needs to be quicker. And, the only part that new chairman has seen has been underwhelming.

John west has got to live up to the promise he made his son and SG's profile and reputation is built on being a good coach, rather than manager.

As I've said before, the worst thing is to decide whether he goes after first 10 matches next season.

Exactly the point I keep making Owl1950, the critics of SG keep referring to how we set up to play - hard to beat but not a real threat - the quality of his signings not the best ?? All true enough perhaps.
But the signings are all he has been able to bring in, surely everybody must be able to see that at least? He would obviously be after the very best available IF we could have afforded them BUT he has had to shop in football Poundland.
Having said that all the players he has brought in have moved us forward a stage IMO.
As for the "tactics", surely the managers job is first and foremost to get the best out of what you have available, and he has done that since the first day he took over and should have nothing to prove to any of our fans .
Some of the "names" put forward just make me shudder? The FL has dozens of managers who keep doing the rounds, getting sacked, picked up by somebody else, getting sacked again, and some of our fans churn these names out and think they would be better at S6 than what we have found !
For example we ended our own recent lean spell this week by taking apart Millwall, the following morning two of our wise men are putting Olly's name forward to take over again ?? A couple of good seasons at Blackpool and he's a must have for us ? WHY?
I accept football is all about opinions, but surely you have to base opinions on reality and facts .

Hi Des, totally respect that view and can't disagree with anything you say, I'm absolutely sure those thoughts will be with the new owners.
All I would say though is we all know there are no guarantees in football?
If we were to change the manager to ensure we make progress in the first 10 matches and beyond next season - who would that be?
David Moyes surely couldn't fail at ManU with his pedigree and the resources he was given - could he?
Van Gaal almost won World Cup but still not sorted it out yet despite spending loads more?
AVB won Champs Lge how could he fail at Chelsea with their squad, and fail again at Spurs with £100m "Bale" transfer fund?
Like most things in life, we should be careful what we wish for. Sometimes what you are looking for can be right under your nose.

I totally get that Owl1950 and I don't think we are too far apart really?
I'm not saying stick with SG at all costs either. I just firmly believe that IF we are going to change we have to be REALLY SURE we are changing for the better.
Because although some of our fans don't appreciate it - SG knows his stuff and there aren't that many in football these days that do!!

Big thing I feel is missing from our team is some good wide players. SG concentrated on making our defensive play better and strengthening the defence but he had no resource left to improve the forward play so had to go with what he had in the squad. We never replaced Antonio properly and didn't have anyone else to play the other wing and that is where we are lacking. With better supply I think our forwards will get more chances and score more goals.

I believe John Deehan is the attacking coach, he replaced Paul Wilkinson and I do not think either of them have done a good job. Stuart Grey appointed John Deehan so ultimately it is his responsibility but I am sure everyone will agree that to have achieved the league position he has with the players at his disposal is a fantastic achievement.

Choose which way you cut it we are in for a roller coaster ride. Look at the money that's been pumped into the leading clubs apart from the sky money Also look at the way Leicester and Burnley took apart the Championship and are now well out of their depth.
Choose who manages, choose who runs the club, we may have two to three seasons in the Championship. At that point the real test begins, a further lengthy period of holding on like all the promoted clubs go through, most do not make it.
So let's all count our blessings, SG has been a real rock for this club. If he ever read this site God help him. Just remember the situation four or five years ago. Its like a dream come true for me, and as a life long supporter we now have every reason to look forward to the future. Divided we are week, together we are Wednesday

Well said South.
We have a wealthy and ambitious new owner, but more importantly he seems to have his head screwed on. ( - which really shouldn't surprise us having built a "PROPER" business empire. )
Yes we are going after the dream of the Prem, but thankfully we are going to do it in a sensible way - thankfully!
That way when we do reach our goal, hopefully we will be in better shape to remain there, because as you rightly South point out that's the hardest bit really !
It only takes ONE good season to get to the Prem but you have to be able to compete for a few seasons against much better competition to actually stay in the Prem .
I hope we can all fully support Mr Chansiri in achieving HIS aims - FOR US!!

No rush to replace Keane as Bus is coming up to full match fitness and other players available in the forward positions. Scouting is going on for loans for midfield and wingers especially and also possibly a central defender to cover Loovens loss.

Good news we scored 2, and Strads dud scored in open play, bad news still lost, worse news Westwood out for 2 games, might have been harsh though. SG said it is a season defining 5 games, I think it is a job defining 6 games

More chance of going down than going up now. The freaky start to the season is now well and truely over and a typical Wednesday season is now unfolding. SG must be dreading a phone call from the owner telling him to clear his desk. Fingers crossed we'll still be in this league next season. Oh and Keans still a dud in my opinion. Just one goal in open play in seven games simply isn't good enough. That would be an average of 6 goals per season.

I'd hate to have such a negative outlook on life as you do Strad. It's almost like you want us to be relegated, you were like this last year. This team is a whole lot better than last seasons team and yes we are having a bit of a rubbish run and let's be honest a bad run of injuries to key players but I think we have more than enough in this team to easily avoid relegation. But anyway, the negativity is your point of view and I know from last year you won't shake that so I will leave you with that and enjoy my positive outlook.

Hi Strad
On what basis would any of these people get the job of manager.
How long would it take do you think to install new manager, and then either motivate the rump of the present squad and after obtaining other players who could take you to a position of what you feel is satisfactory in your view, and what is that position.
Its my view we would need about 20 Million, and at that point we would be very short odds being back double quick in this league.
In my view it will take ages, and we are in for a very long haul, maybe four more seasons or more even. Who runs what in between times is academic, we will see quite a few managerial changes before it happens, what with big club, and fans expectation stuff, together with new owners and their stuff, may I suggest you settle down tighten your belt and enjoy the ride.

I would want none of those managers. If we are to swap SG for someone it has to be someone with a proven track record. All three you have mentioned are probably only good enough to be coaches at the club but definitely not manager material.

25 Feb 2015 00:12:09
Would you care to give a few me a few managerial options then, and describe their track records for the job.
Perhaps you could also answer some of the other points I raised, so I might understand exactly what you do want, and what time scale you had in mind.
There comes a time when the balance has to change from all out frankness as you call it, to some thing more transparent in how you think the club can make improvements, and what other progress can be made, and how long it might take.
What exactly do you want from the club.
My take is sit back settle down, enjoy the ride, and think of Wednesday, and accept that only the management will manage this club.

Promotion from 2 leagues it looks like with the same club that's what he's achieved. We'd also get him at he end of the season for free. All his signings apart from the goalkeeper have been better than SG's so he also knows the market. He knows a good striker when he see's one too compared to SG.

All we need now is or me to pop in to Brentford, and let him know what you have decided.
In between times you could inspire the team and management at half time to improve the general well being in the dressing room.
That would be one way of getting rid of the out of contract players before the end of the season.
Then if you have a few minutes to spare you could motivate the crowd through the public address system. Why waste a talent like yours. Of course the down the side is you never talk about football, just desperate one liners.
What are the stats for Warburton 2012/13 2013/14 seasons any ideas, I won't hold my breath for a reply

Better than DJ and SG's combined. Next question. May I remind you football isn't a science it's a simple case of your players are good enough or they're not. Take a look at Dougie Freedman for example, shocking at Bolton but 5 wins out of 5 at Forrest. Nothing changed scientifically he simply inherited better players.

26 Feb 2015 09:44:26
So if you are right about Friedman Strad, and I'm not disagreeing with you, its nothing to do with managers at all - its about having better players?
Well done - you've solved the problem!!
We can keep SG and just gradually get some better players.
But I thought that's what the majority of us had been saying all along?
In summary you can be the best manager in the world but if the players aren't good enough to beat the opposition regularly you won't progress.
SG has been getting our players to overperform for most of the past 12months so your solution is sack him and bring a "name" in.
There are loads of "names" out of work so perhaps they are not what you think they are either?

I have never been convinced that May can do the business. I have lost track the one on ones that he has failed to convert, what a waist of money.
Yet again another scuff, hitting the ball with the inside of his foot, with the goalkeeper on the deck. He will never make the grade in the Championship, regarding the Premier league in his wildest dreams, so get him out at the end of the year.
In my view we are building the team for a decent run in this league. We need a proven striker from the Championship, or above.
As much as I respect Gray, if he fails to address this he is a gonner at some point

All I would add is SG has greatly improved the team and performances over past year with little or nothing to spend.
May was best we could do with what he could raise - and only by selling an asset!
May does have promise and will improve, hopefully with us!
If SG had £10mill+ to spend on a striker it would be easier to find one that scores regularly perhaps, but budget strikers rarely join a club and start scoring 30goals a season.
He has now been given some support in market and he has bought some "low-value" players who will improve us when they bed in to the squad.
Finally checkout Laudrups record at Swansea, it was so good he got sacked not long after signing a new contract, and in any case he's headed for QPR.
If and when we do decide to replace SG I hope it is with a manager with more ability than him, and not one with a bigger name or reputation - remember Dave Jones?

Darren Bent would have been an obvious choice although at the time I am sure that money would have been a big factor. Let's be honest the season is all but written off, we are 9 points about the drop zone and 13 of the play off spot I am more worried about the 9 point gap than I am hopeful of the 13 point gap

We are starting to become unrealistic again Laudrup etc It is a manager who will get us out of this league. Then we will have to sack him and replace with the likes of well certainly not Laudrup to compete in the top flight. My question to you all is would you hand over millions to invest in the team this summer to Stu ????

Good Morning Howler
Being like yourself a true blue, as much as I would like Stevie May to do well, he does not have it on what we have seen to date. Not the pace, the heading ability, positional play in the box, goal poaching, but more importantly he is incapable of scoring from outside the box with a clean shot at pace and accuracy. I noted this in an earlier post, for this reason alone he will probably not make the grade. I have never seen a striker scuff so many shots, he somehow fails to make clean contact with the ball, keep an eye on it. Every striker worth his salt historically has been prolific at his age. Unless you can name the few exceptions.
As for the manager he had a common goal with every one connected with the club, that was avoid the drop. Can he now be productive enough to bring together a team challenging the leaders, which is capable of playing in the premiership with the addition of half a dozen new faces, we will have to see. Can he find two strikers capable of20-25 goals per season. That's what it will take or he is a gonner. Buying and loaning players who have yet to play in the big boys league may be SGs final throw I fear, and very risky. The new owners have I think witnessed one winning game, they will not allow that to continue much longer. Apology to the spelling police, and the Ofsted inspector.

Hi South
My only concern is that within just a couple of weeks of the takeover, there are already rumblings of demands for big money signings, and big name managers !
We Owls as much as anybody should appreciate that there are no short cuts to lasting success !
Spending and sackings, followed by more spending and sackings will only lead us back to where we were.
MM has steadied the ship and set us up to progress, it will happen if we do it the right way, sensibly.
Spending and sackings, followed by more spending and sackings lead nowhere.
I generally agree with yours and others assessments of our players, but they are all much better than what we had just 18months ago, and if we improve as much in next 12 to 18months we will probably be where we all want to be - I suggest?

David Hirst got 6 goals in his first season from 21 apperances. Some of you guys would have had him thrown out of the club as a waste of money for stats like that. Give the guy a chance, his form is a bit rubbish at the moment but jumping on his back and screaming for him to be pushed out of the club won't help. Give him a loan to help him regain his confidence, he scored one goal everyone and a half games before and you don't loose that ability overnight but you can use your confidence that quick.

I take it you saw Hirsty when he first came, and younger, in a better class of football. Compairing him and Stevie May is the stuff of nightmares.
Regarding stats, just look at pace, shooting ability, heading ability, strength, shooting power he is not on the same planet, Stevie May needs six opportunities to score one goal. Hirsty needed a sniff and it was in the back of the net.

13 Feb 2015 09:38:56
In his first season Hirst wasn't that good and was taking a couple of chances before every goal. A little like May now, he was feeling the pressure of moving to a big club, added to the fact that initially the fans weren't that happy with him for some of his comments before we signed him. Anyway looking beyond that I don't think our forwards are the problem. Having been to a few games this season the service to our forwards has deteriorated rapidly from the start of the season. If I was going to spend lots of money on the team the first place I would look would be midfield and especially the wide areas. With better service I think our forwards will score more goals, someone above said that because our service is so terrible the strikers are snatching at half chances as they don't know when the next chance will come. I've said before that given our midfield I don't think Shearer, Henry and Costa would score many goals. Anyway not much chance to change things around now, the sort of players we need won't be available in the loan window. Get behind the lads we do have in the squad and quit abusing them and maybe they may surprise you.

I do get behind the lads on match day, but you will at some point have to decide the difference between a silk purse and a sows ear.
When Hirsty arrived its what he said before hand that got under the collar of the fans, but that soon changed make no mistake.

Please don't confuse abuse with reality, that is dangerous territory.
He himself will have to provide the proof he can make the grade, if he continues to miss the eight yard target as often as he presently does, he's on his way. We no longer are looking to stay up, new owners, new targets, top notch finishers, that's the order of the day, he does not have those qualities, but he's had plenty of chances to put that right, and will get plenty more. The thought of spending 4 mil on two midfield wizards to provide chance after chance for him is frankly hilarious. Any striker worth his salt at his age has been prolific. This is not Scotland you don't have all day, in acres of space. I would however be the first to eat my words if he goes on a run, don't forget this if he can't do it for us, he is preventing the team moving forward, one extra goal per game in this league is the difference between mid table and promotion. That's not abusing people that's dealing with reality.

I always try to be positive and don't abuse players. Well not our own.
My comments about May are painful to make, but IMO he simply isn't good enough and Iv watched him play enough this season to pass that judgment.
I still thinks it's a lack of ability to make the correct decission quickly, as his passing, runs off the ball and finishing just don't cut it at this level.

This is one of those times where I think we will have to agree to disagree. Different people see things in different ways and I see a player with some potential who has massively lost his confidence but you see it differently and that's human nature. If it was my choice I would pull him out of the team and give some of our other strikers a chance and then get him a loan to a lower league club for a month or so to try and get him his confidence and goal touch back. His goal record I mentioned above doesn't just disappear overnight, and the Scottish leagues are not as terrible as some people say, the way some people talk not just on this site but others too you would think my local sunday league team would stuff Scottish clubs when in fact their lower leagues are very competitive.

Good start to the day, I just switched on the deadline day news and saw we had signed two players then realised one of the deals was Kelhar resigning on a short term deal. I've heard two possibly three more signings today, with one of those being a loan deal till the end of the season. Vermijl looks like he is one of these players but don't have any names or positions for other targets. Having said that I have heard we will definitely now not get Jamie Paterson in this window because of the change of manager. Freedman wants to evaluate his options before letting players leave.

I wonder if SG will still be at the helm next season. With so much money potentially available could they be looking for a top top manager to become available, nobody is going to invest £30m for fun. While I think SG has done brilliantly with what he has had at his disposal I think our new owners may want a speedy return on their investment, and as has been seen all season we are not going to get to top six unless we are more of a force going forward and currently we concentrate on Defence

I've said it for ages now and even on here, SG is carp at getting good strikers in. We know for a fact that this Bus geezer will be no good just like Keane and May etc. I also see that SG's said that if we can't get any players in by the time the window shuts then hopefully he'll be able to get somebody in next week when the loan window opens. That says to me that loanees are still going to be the norm at Hillsborough even under the new ownership. I remember the good days and it makes me very sad to see what's going on at this once great club.

MM has been around football a lot of his career so is a good advisor for the new guys to help point them in the right direction as they haven't run a football club before.

Agree with LMN above. We're half way up the league because of Gray which is a far better position than we were at this stage last year. With a bit of investment we could push on from here and spend time on the fringes of the play offs this year with a push for promotion next term. Everyone knows we need a striker, but we need to buy a decent one not loan one. Otherwise we'll be in the same position next year. Saying the same as this. Confident we'll finish at least mid table.

I see that we are unlikely to buy and any loans will be second or third week which means AG will miss out again. I agree we will finish around the middle of the table and without a struggle, which given our circumstances we should be satisfied ?

I'd be delighted at that, that's real sustainable progress. The fact we have won two in 14 (I think) doesn't matter. The table doesn't lie - we have moved forward considerably).

I'd rather we buy a striker, but if that's not an option I would much rather we loan than do nothing.

Let's just hope we can get £3million for Westwood from Liverpool. We've got a good number two to fill the gap left by Westwoods departure and maybe £750k of the money could be offered for Doyle from Chesterfield.

Surprised he dropped May? Why's that then? He doesn't score goals mate which at the end of the day is the reason we bought him. His work rate is fantastic but when it comes to scoring goals I'm afraid he's just not good enough at the moment. Yes he scored goals in Scotland but he's now in the English championship where he's up against better defenders, better goalkeepers and better teams. I've no doubt he will improve in front of goal over time as the potential is obviously there and hopefully he'll still be in a Wednesday shirt when that time comes.

Strad is spot on

Plus he can't get away from defenders, and I have never seen a striker scuff so many shots. By that I mean a good clean solid shot at pace, with accuracy.

Strad give the lad May a chance, he has come from Scottish football which we all know is not as good a quality as our league. He has had a couple of niggly injuries and also the team as a whole haven't been playing to there best so the service to him (and the other forwards) has been incredibly patchy. I don't think Costa or Aguero would score in this team at the moment because of the service to the forwards. We need to get a run of wins together even if they are scrappy and then the confidence in the team will return.

Hi Shef 13

We are getting the ball in the box enough its the choice of what happens next that is the problem.
Every one is trying to get on the score sheet from whatever position
Because the forwards have not scored they are trying everything individually instead of sorting out the right move in and around area.
The 4 on 2 was a fine example against Huddersfield. May is not lightning fast, and 5ft 10 that's half the problem with him.

27 Nov 2014 17:50:12
That's exactly right. In no way am I saying Stevie May hasn't got the potential to go on to score goals but at this moment in time the gulf between the Scottish Prem and this one is huge and I think it's clear in Mays performances and goals ratio. Yes he's a trier and yes he works his socks off but stats don't lie. He was brought here to score goals as were the other forwards and it's either not worked or isn't working. Yet!!

Can't believe I am saying this, but I actually agree with Strad. The gulf is huge.
To be fair to Mat though, his effort that hit the crossbar, the line and then the post was as unlucky as it gets.

SG obviously rates Taylor-Fletcher more than Madine hence bringing him in and shipping the latter out. I'm not sure its the right decision. We are desperately short of a creative midfielder with an eye for a defence splitting pass and plenty of goals in his locker. One that's creative with flair, skillful and speedy.

Strad

It's a pity SG is not playing GTF to his full strength. He's always been known to feed of the big target man and last match he brought of Adthe instead of the misfiring long haired haggis. With regard to a midfield general, it's about time ALL the midfield realised they are allowed to go for goal and not just leave it for our so-called strikers. Some of them seem to have a nosebleed when approaching the 18 yard box. Come on MF get stuck in, What's it matter if you miss, at least one can say you've tried.

Strikers are needed before anything. We all knew that Nuhiu's goal scoring wouldn't continue and Stevie May is so out of his depth at this level with regards to hitting the back of the net. Taylor-Fletcher's never been a good goal scorer and Madines been sent to Coventry. The reality of a typical season at S6 is back.

We can go on and on buying more and more strikers, but until we have a midfield capable of picking a way through the opposition we are not going to score many goals.

Need a Central Midfielder that can pass forward instead of backwards and sidewards all the time. If you add a decent winger who can actually beet a man the deliver a half decent ball for once we might even score. Blame the strikers all you want but they don't get enough chances to score.

Wasn't at the game yesterday, had to work. But I'm told by friends that did go that the reference had a shocker. Even Alan Biggs not known as a Owls supporter said 3 certain penalties turned down and SG who considered when he speaks said the crucial 50/50 decisions didn't go our way. I have been told today that Mark Haywood the ref yesterday, was born on the Herdings Estate and is a life long Blades fan. If and I can't confirm that it is true how the heck does the FA allow a Blades fan to ref an Owls game.
They would never allow an Everton fan to ref a Liverpool.

Whereever the ref comes from he was poor. It was a blatant penalty when Pearce handled in area. Linesman was looking at incident feedback on them will be poor and careers will suffer.

Well Ed? I can remember you having a real go at a certain "Revowl" on here a few months ago when he first informed us that the buyout of our club wasn't going to happen. He stated it clearly and you along with lots more not only wouldn't take what he was telling everyone as true but you even tried suggesting that it's normal for takeovers to go on and on and on and even compared it to the Man City takeover. Come on Ed be a man, if you've got the nerve to print this message surely you've got the nerve to put your hands up and admit that Revowl was 100% right from day one and you along with lots more were 100% wrong. Revowl also warned us of Milans feel good rumors so I expect him to come out with another one very soon just to lift our spirits again. Milan needs to know that our spirits are already on a high at the moment with the team playing as well as they are and the results that we are getting without him chucking one of his rumors in just to let us down again. Here's to Revowl and his true facts. Keep them coming and keep us in the know.

100% agree what has been achieved this season and staying in the league last season is down to SG. Yes there is no doubt Mandaric buying the club debt for £1 and striking a deal to pay £8m to clear the £30m debt was a stroke of business excellence. Now take the rose tinted glasses off and look at the investment in the palying staff. Signinging of Antonio being the only one of note and ofcourse May recently have come out of the clubs running money (revenue) the transfer kitty has been none exitant the wage bill is slashed recruits on free transfers (enabling us to pay additionak £1k per week on wages on them) we got rid of 14 players at the end of last season and the start of this recruited 3 not including the babies. He has invested nothing filled us with what we wanted to hear initially then went into hiding. He is a brilliant businessman and an excellent Bull****r.

I must be seeing a different football club to you guys. I see a club in a good financial position (compared to most championship clubs), a squad of players with a bit of heart, no overpaid deadwood, and a potentially good youth squad. You don't have to spend big to achieve in this league, keep wages low and don't get carried away by overpaying for players and we'll be great. Remember Rome wasn't built in a day, slow and steady wins the race

CasOwl

I agree CasOwl, I don't understand how some people think. MM has bought the club, with a view to making a profit but has put us in a better position on and off the pitch. There were plenty of people looking at the club in 2010 but nobody had the money and / or balls to actually buy us other than him. MM isn't a Wednesday fan so this ridiculous notion that he is going to blindly pump all his money into the club to make us successful is naïve to put it politely. I will start having a go at MM the day that I personally pump more money into the club than him. And the notion that there is a queue of Billionaires out there waiting to buy us is also stupid. MM has done wonders for this club on limited resources. We are in the best position we have been in for 15 years. Some people live in cloud cuckoo land. With regard Mammadov - he looked a god bet at one point but it now turns out he isn't. That isn't MM's fault but we have been lucky and dodged a bullet there. Could be much worse he could have sold us to the guy at dirty Leeds.

Radon Barrier

05 Sep 2014 14:40:45
Exactly radon, in full agreement. This notion that we can instantly buy our way into the prem is only feasible with billionaires. For the rest of us it takes time to build a squad of players capable of not only getting up but staying up. The reason we have released all of those players is that they weren't good enough and the few we have brought in are. With business like this you can build a very good squad over 2-3 years. Trying to do it overnight will lead us back to where we've been before, financial trouble. I'd rather mm not sell until he finds the right guy, have a lot of friends who support Leeds and trust me they envy us at the minute

CasOwl

(5)
(3)

Well said CasOwl & Radon!
I could add a lengthy tome in support of what MM has done for the club in the last 4yrs.
I will simply point out the obvious:-
He is not a fan as we are, he is purely an investor, a businessman.
But despite that, compare both our on-field and off-field situation NOW to what it was THEN, and I suggest it is impossible and ridiculous to even try to criticise MM.

Takeover no takeover not realy fussed all I see is a club that is financialy solid, a manager who knows what he's doing for once, and a squad that goes out and gives their all on the pitch, if it carries on like that I will be a happy OWL

Nice to see (in the majority of posts) common sense being applied! Does anyone think the takeover falling through may actually be a massive positive? The current squad can now buckle down and play without fear of their places being undermined. We can draw comparison with a team that got promoted last season - Burnley! Were they the 2nd best team in the league? - Probably not - Did they have the biggest/most expensive squad? - Definitely not! How was their success achieved? - Good coaching, strong team spirit & work ethic, 2 strikers who combined for over 40 goals between them, excellent backing from their fans & a little bit of luck with injuries etc. Well we have a fantastic coach, we have 2 strikers who seem to be gelling into a potent force and a good team ethos right through the side. Needless to say, the Wednesday massive will always turn out in numbers. The only thing we can't control is the luck element but I'm pretty confident, given our fair share, we can make the playoffs this season. WTID

Its good to see that the silent majority are getting louder than the noisy minority. When MM finally leaves us he will have put at least 4 years into the club and be well into his 70's. He deserves to make a profit when he leaves. Every businessman has an exit strategy when buying into a business. His money, negotiating skills and experience undoubtedly stopped us from going into administration. If you remember we were at the High Court to be wound up before MM negotiated a way out. This would have meant not only losing points but more importantly losing our 1867 status, which I am extremely proud of. The only discussions about MM should be where we are going to put his statue when he has gone! We should also remember the a part played in this by Howard Wilkinson, and also Lee Strafford. People have such short memories i'm surprised they remember their login names.

Eloquent Radon and CasOwl, it's the only word, pure eloquence. Yes, Suttonowl, here's one who thinks the collapse of the takeover might be more a case of a lucky escape. I've talked on here before about basket case owners and I've thought for some time that our club was going to be added to the existing pool of them in the Premier League and the Championship. Let's hope when the next taker comes along that Milan's antennae are just a bit more finely tuned. Having said that how much do we owe to that guy, it's beyond measure.

Maybe he failed to show where the source of his money came from, or maybe he could not find the shed which had the shed loads of money in it. It was stated on this site by knowledgeable individuals that the money would be down with a third party, so take your pick.
Either way, MM finally got it.
I mentioned three weeks ago this gives us a fantastic publicity opportunity to attract the right sort of individual the club deserves, together with a fantastic history, and fans.
A golden opportunity hopefully for home grown talent to buy, not rent a team individuals as we currently have in the UK, with rent a team supporters. I do of course exclude MM from my thoughts regarding foreign owners.

Corleone of the Caspian, Land of Backfire would be more appropriate.
No wonder he kept quite throughout.
The shyster has not paid for the shirt deal,and we are in too deep to change anything
Shed loads of money, dream on.
Serious cash flow problems spot on.

I'm more than happy for any individual or group to takeover, provided they have both the clubs interests at heart AND a large available capital fund to invest. The talk of home grown investment worries me because all the clubs who have had sizeable cash injections have foreign owners! There seems no UK investment out there that compete with the likes of the Arabs/East Europeans etc.
As for the shirts, we should due for the money and simply remove the logo until we get it. reprinting shirts for the team won't be hard or expensive

So far, a very happy owl. Team look to be playing with as much ambition as the fans have and the signings have shown great promise and seem to be meeting the high expectations we have for the massive. Looking forward to potentially our best season in a very long time

If this guy from France is as good a defender as he's supposed to be, does this mean he will slip in at RB thus releasing Palmer for his normal midfield roll. Could save us a lot of money in the long run.

The report on the internet suggests that he is a centre back or left back. That would indicate that he is more likely to be seen as an alternative to Mattock

More likely that Tom Lees would move to RB, and as you say we could then see Palmer develop in to the MF player he promises to be?

I heard on good authority, SG is looking to play 3 5 2, which would require 3 decent centre halves

Royston drenthe signed winger from reading lost a bit of confidence but very exciting if sg can get it back played for some big clubs real madrid paid 14 million euros so got some talent

Just watched Dielna on Utube. WOW!
Strong, fast, equally good at CH or RB, quality distribution and scores goals.
There are a number of posts on him, but watch the Ajaccio one in particular where it shows quite a lot of different matches. He looks pretty awesome.
Well done again MM / SG. Looks to be a steal!
Still need more upfront though and wide. Who next?

We should try and sign Jamie O'Hara I think he's been released by Wolves.

We defo need a Creative Midfielder and a Winger if we get them in I think we'll be looking at Play Offs at least.

Sounds like 1st team. Had spells at Bury & Northants and done ok. Another string to the bow I guess, but thought a CB and wide player would have been a more major priority. I'm guessing SG has bait cast out on both those positions as well, just that he got a bite from a striker first.

Looked good for the few minutes he was on. Time will tell. Think we showed how much we have moved on from last season, but need to strengthen further if we are to maintain this excellent start. The injuries and suspensions have started already.
