It's Back To The Football - For Now

It's Back To The Football - For Now

The drama of 'D-Day' has been and gone, and although Wednesday face a continued battle to secure their future, it's back to the bread and butter of the on-the-pitch action.

The off-the-field stuff will still make the headlines until the club have either secured a new buyer, or the unthinkable in entering administration.

But Saturday's trip to face MK Dons in npower League One gives Wednesdayites a 90-minute respite from what has been an energy-sapping week.

Talking about the possible tactics for the weekend, the meeting points for pre-match drinks, the odds of Alan Irvine playing a player out of position....Darren Potter.

The pros and, er, cons, of Potter and indeed discussions into whether Irvine is the man for the job at S6 seem like a dream come true for most fans after the week that we've had.

The ability to actually discuss the on-the-field stuff after possible takeovers, court hearings and adjournments, with some national media coverage to boot, comes as a great relief.

Three points on Saturday will be big for Wednesday, especially given the possibility of going into administration, but suddenly, after the last few days, they actually don't seem that important at all.

The fact that Wednesdayites still have a club to support, to cheer, to boo, is the important thing this week.

Cheering and supporting there will be in abundance at MK Dons this weekend, with the 'booing' very much taking a back seat, for this week at least.

Wednesday fans are amongst the best in the country as it is, especially away from home, but Saturday's league trip will be something special.

Irvine and his troops can rest assured that they'll be receiving their full backing from the visiting section on Saturday, which will be packed full of Owls fans.

Wednesday fans are looking forward to Saturday's match as any so far this season, and rightly so, let's hope it's a day to remember.

Completely Agree, we've all got to get together and get behind the team. Let's hope we manage to get better attendances though.

we need to get the world cup first which is more than likely going to spain once the bbc show that program the week before the vote. i honestly cant see anything but a positive ending to all this, i just thing we are too good a club for somebody not to come in.

As far as I'm aware ETA called a ceasefire and end to hostilities. Terrorism be it Islamic fundamentalist or hardline IRA splinter groups is not exactly foreign to these isles. In a perfect world England would be the venue but since when do we ive in a perfect world? Similarly let's not get ahead of ourselves and think all the problems are behind us. Attendances are linked to performance and price so as things get tougher don't expect people to flood through the turnstiles and things will get tougher. Yes Wednesday are a club with massive economic potential if properly managed but investors will still want to pay the best possible price for them, not the club. How will any buyout be financed? In light of Man U and Liverpool situations it's a question worth asking. Finally what price are the club's creditors asking? The principle creditor, the Co-op bank appears to be happy to settle for losing money in order to acrue some cash back. This isn't surprising the banking sector in general is trying to increase its cash assets over its credit liabilities. The wild cards are the creditors like our fomer chairman who may have lost their love of the club and wish to make every pound back, who knows how they will react? In short all we've done is put ourselves even more firmly in the shop window by getting this stay of execution. Someone will come in but I think we should get every point possible just in case they wait until after administration.

i dont disagree about the stadiums, facilities or travel. the simple truth is we are generally despised by the rest of europe, the the pending bbc program will blow us out of the water, nice work by the way bbc. Terrorists? rumour has theres some bloke, i forget his name, bin something, ********** maybe, who isnt shy about throwing around a little terror.....just rumours though. maybe this ********** fella and his crownies might be waiting to strike again, at some kind of major event, with loads of people in attendence, hmmmm kinda like the world cup. one way or another this nightmare could be over in the next few week, which im very optimistic of, and hopefully start the biginning of a new era at the club. The one and only thing i miss about being in the top flight is the full stadium, id love to see those days again.
