Would-be investor Dennis Hobson last night revealed the rest of his consortium ahead of the club's AGM - and insisted the group would not be going away without a fight.
Four members of his group of five jersey-based consortium attended the meeting at Cutler's Hall - including brother Andrew Hobson, accountant Tim Dunningham, legal advisor Russell Homer and Alan Devy who was briefly involved with Hull City.
The consortium insisted their combined wealth was far more than the £60 worth of current Owls' chairman Dave Allen - and that the involvement of the fans was key to their plans.
Hobson told the Yorkshire Post: 'We value the fans and what they do for this football club and want to involve them. We want the club to do well and that can only be done by working with the wonderful fans this club has.
'We will continue to put together funding and a detailed business plan for the club. It appears we will have to do this from publically available information and with no help from Mr. Allen.'
The group were present at the heated AGM meeting at Cutler's Hall on Monday evening but remained silent as shareholders questioned a number of topics with chairman Dave Allen and the rest of the Owls board - but new boss Brian Laws was not present at the evening.
And Allen insisted that any potential invesment would be spent the way they wanted - with no strings attached.
He said: 'If Wednesdayite or anyone else want to put money in on a 'no strings' basis, it will be gratefully received and it will be dutifully acknowledged.'
Allen also commented on the recent sacking of former boss Paul Sturrock after fans reacted strongly the decision despite the recent upturn of results.
He said: 'It might be Paul Sturrock's team but it is a different manager and we have played a different style of football - that is what is getting results.'
