Owls Slapped With Second Court Date

Owls Slapped With Second Court Date

Wednesday's off-the-field problems have worsened today with the news that the club has been slapped with another court date over an unpaid VAT bill.

The Owls are due in the High Court on Wednesday, December 1 to face the winding up order by HMRC for a bill of £300,000 of unpaid VAT.

It will follow hot-on-the-heels of a High Court date on Wednesday, November 17, again by HMRC, over an unpaid PAYE tax bill of £600,000.

It means Wednesday will be in a race against time with three parties, who are believed to be interested in a takeover deal of the npower League One club, to strike an investment deal before the court dates.

If the club aren't bailed out again, the Owls could face administration.

At this stage I dont think there is any "could" about it, we will face admin. if we dont get someone to invest. But like i said before, why would someone invest, and take on 30million in debt, when they could wait until we go into admin, where the debts would be written off, and then launch a takeover?

have we got no one with the financial clout to support the claims and promises they make. there must be somthing seriously wrong for everyone to pull out at some point or another. I think milan mandric would be a stroke of genius and someone that would not let this happen again if wilko can convince him we are not up the creek already??

Admin and league two here we come. I think i might drink a full bottle of wine and pretend it is 1990-91 all over again. Went to more than 50 games that season. Only game I couldn't get a ticket for was Hull away, but me and my mate jumped the turnstile and legged it into the crowd of barmy army with cuddly toys flying everywhere. I just want this year to be over as a wednesday fan - can't see us being rescued. Dave Richards used to live on the same street as me in Hillsborough. Before my time but my neighbour remembers him coming home in his first Jag. Says he was always a crook. He has a lot to answer for but doesn't give a rats ar5e - but why should he - the multimillionaire premier league chairman. This all stinks. The premier league stinks. Englands overpaid jokers stink. Man City are about to drive another nail in footballs coffin over the next five years. During the world cup I wondered which was worse supporting England or Wednesday. Its wednesday. Fed up fed up fed up. i am actually going off football. Wheres the corkscrew!!!!

What will be, will be. None of us can change what's gonna happen in the next 10 days or so. The only thing we have is hope. The true supporters will remain, whichever league we end up in. There's no point in worrying about what you can't change. Its the not knowing thats hard tp bare for us fans.

The stupid thing is that every time I log on to the Vital Wednesday, I have this little shred of hope that just maybe I'll read the headline "Sheffield Wednesday have secured investment!". Instead all I read is winding up order served..... failed investment talks..... doom and gloom..... blah blah blah.... It's hard being a Wednesdayite or football fan in general. But no matter what happens, however much I dislike what direction the club are heading I will always follow them through thick and thin. I agree with Radon Barrier that the premier league stinks and long gone are those die hard football players that don't demand such ridiculous wages and fees. The once hard working mans (and womens) sport is becoming a great big joke, full of overpaid (so called) professionals and clubs with various levels of debt. Unfortunatly theres no way back for Wednesday or football as a sport so lets just hold on to the hope that maybe, just maybe, the (once) mighty Owls can turn the corner and start moving forward again. I like many thought that this season was going to be just that, but as usual it looks like we, the fans must wait yet another season as I fear as many do that although not over this season looks bleak. WTID.....

Breaking news: Ivor Potsomonikov the philanthropist Russian multibillionaire who has long been a secret Wednesdayite has committed to invest £400million in the club on condition that the Coop bank take over the financial affairs from the present board who will go into the “Cuckoo’s Nest” sheltered accommodation Penistone. Also David Hirst has gone TT and undergone rejuvenation therapy and may come on tonight against Hartlepool. Bolstering midfield will be Tommy Craig’s grandson (said to put his grandfather at his peak in the shade), not to mention Chris Waddle’s kneecap…..

what we have to all remember is that the Bank have a major say in what happens at Sheffield Wednesday.They are our main creditor.They will have the say what investors do .The directors do not stand much of a chance of saying anything.Lets face facts we are skint,have no savings and live month to month.If you were owed £26 million (what are you going to do?)Throw in the towel and recive one pound for every million owed.No you would want every penny back.So they know if there is a glimmer of a chance of someone putting money into us who does have money to spend,they will keep bailing us out as they know they will get it all back.Im quite sure they will not say enough is enough and except 1 pound for every Million owed.
