'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Calling Geoff Sheard!

Vital Sheffield Wednesday member NicNac, as with the majority of Wednesday fans, was disgusted at the news that Geoff Sheard was abused by Wednesday fans - and she's doing something about it.

Sheard, heading a consortium looking to takeover at S6, revealed he was abused by several Wednesday 'fans' following the Owls 4-1 defeat at Wolves at the weekend.

And NicNac has taken matters in to her own hands by writing an open letter to the man himself, and opening a petition for us to sign to show Geoff that we're still backing him to takeover at Hillsborough and start a new era at S6...

--------------------------------------------

I realise you must receive lots of emails/phone calls etc every day regarding the take over and the current situation at Sheffield Wednesday.

I realise this must be a very difficult process and all parties are trying their best to resolve the situation.

However, members of the online forum I belong to (Vital SWFC, http://www.sheffwed.vitalfootball.co.uk) were disgusted to hear about abuse Geoff Sheard said he received after the Wolves game.

To this end, I have created an online petition to show Mr Sheard and
his consortium the backing he has among the rank and file Wednesdayites, the normal Joe Bloggs down the road who want to see the best for Wednesday.

Personally abusing the single ray of light we have had for a number of years is absurd, and indeed dangerous to the future of the club should Mr Sheard decide he's had enough.

I do have faith in Mr Sheard however and don't think he'd just give up
at this stage.

I believe he has shown much perseverance and dedication in the process so far, and so I am wanting to get the petition out to
as many people as possible to show Mr Sheard and his associates just what this takeover would mean to the general fanbase and thought you may be able to help.

Finally, the petition was live for a little over two and a half hours and had over 150 signatures.

Thank you for your time, any help is greatly appreciated. The petition
can be found here:

Thanks Nick! :D I actually got a mention in the Star too! http://www.thestar.co.uk/owls/OPEN-LETTER-TO-GEOFF-SHEARD.4408009.jp
NicNac
Did the belong to Vital bit, cause a stir on Owls Talk? I bet they felt used and dirty, lol
Bigash
I've signed up. We must support Geoff Sheard, as I believe that he is the only hope for this club at present - if the takeover fails, I think we'll end up in administration - the remaining members of the current board don't appear interested any more. Can't understand why the takeover is taking so long though. IT MUST HAPPEN!!!
swfcjambo
just seen it in the star, and ive signed... cant understand why anyone would abuse him we desperatly need him!
mansfieldowl
well done nicnac. I'm absolutley sickened to hear about geoff sheard getting abused. These guys can't call themselves wednesday fans, they're bloody idiots
Norman
Thanks for getting this together NicNac! I can't believe that people would act that way. Shameful! Seems the idiots always are the ones who get heard. I can't imagine all the things Sheard is juggling right now! We appreciate it Geoff!
YankeeOwl
Did you like my shameless plug for Vital? :D There are over 750 signatures now!
NicNac
while i dont condone the abuse of mr sheard, the real fans need some answers, you still have to look at situation, whats going on, how long does it take, personally I dont think its going to happen.
madowl
Geoff Sheard is a businessman. He works with millions. Do you really think he cares that a bunch of morons like him, hate him, or masturbate screaming his name?
RatherRandomOwl
Can you pigs sink any lower? if it's not scabbing off other clubs for players, your now sending a begging letter to Mr Invisible. When will your sad club and fans be put out their misery for good. Pathetic.
sharpblades
well said nicnac have signed up lets hope things progress soon.
beverley owl
SharpPIG does us all a favour and feck off and go wallow in you own **** invested poor excuse you call a forum. And stop polluting our site with you filth and boring comments.
Skeggy Owl

madowl

NicNac
SB go and play with your only friend pigforlife
mick66owl
You make us all Blades laugh at how sad your club are, crying because Geoff got abused and organising a sad petition. Just makes you sound sad. You will always be in our shadow.
sharpblades
I think I would rather be in the shadow, that is rather than wallowing in a **** infested pig sty you call a football ground. You really are a knob Sharpgrunter.
Skeggy Owl
Squeeling like little piggies because a fraud has yet to take over your debt ridden football club. When will you thick lot realise he's taking you all for a ride. deluded pathetic individuals.
sharpblades
Come on Geoff. Let's get this one put to bed.
Smurf
ha ha nice one sharpness!! sheard is a blades fan!!!
bladesforlife1889
Can;t believe these idiots still believe he's going to stump up the money to get them out of the brown stuff. He got a crap past record as a business man and was thrown out of Preston's club shop for not paying his way. I salute Sheard for taking these mugs for a ride.
sharpblades
Dear BFL and blunt: Grow up and get a life. It's not Sheard who is financing the deal, he is just fronting the consortium. Either find out more about the situation before commenting (and you might as well become an Owl) or stop commenting on something you know nothing about.
NicNac
Why would a group of swiss millionaires have a failed businessman with an awful track record front their consortium? I advise you to stop being so gullable. He was selling PNE shirts not so long ago. Your going to be very disapointed.
sharpblades
look at pigforlife brown tonging bluntblunt, keep your gay antics to your own site please gentlemen
johnnywalker69
come on johnny where do you get gentlemen please. fellow piglets is more suffice
