Loyalty Doesn't Mean Follow Blindly

Loyalty Doesn't Mean Follow Blindly

Vital Sheffield Wednesday member CompostBin rants about losing Steve Maclean, missing out on Billy Sharp, and the not-so-bright future of the club he loves...

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

Well, MacLean has gone, good riddance etc we'll be getting Sharp because Laws is mates with him. How gullible our fans are. I'm sad to say it, but we're as gullible as we are sometimes fickle.

Now we have neither Sharp or MacLean and are looking desperate, enough to add another 25 per cent to any value in a selling club's eyes. We dragged out the 'purchase' of Sharp because it was beneficial to drag it out, it kept the fans hoping and kept them spending in the ticket office. Look back one year, there was Carson, look a bit further and there was Tyson.

'Get off their back', 'support the Club whatever happens' etc, well, no, I won't because they are ripping off supporters of the Club I love in the name of the Club I love. They've let the Club down: this famous Club is a pale comparison of the Club of just a few years ago, not by luck or the weather but by actions and decisions taken at board level.

This week, like many weeks before, the Club have shown that we have neither balls nor guts nor cash and worse still, no interest in changing any of the above. Our mysterious Asian investor now resides in Birmingham. Our best striker now resides in Cardiff and our new wonder-kid now resides in the wrong side of Sheffield.

There are excuses, plenty of them, all acceptable enough to those that won`t dig deeper, the followers who watch with closed eyes.

Not enough shareholding for sale? Ask Birmingham if they needed to hand over 50 per cent to get investment. Too much debt for investment? Ask Derby who went from £40M in debt (and poor team) to the PL in 12 months. We're not Premier League side so of no interest for investors? Well, ask just about every team from Hull to Coventry who've had money pumped into them for the benefit of the team.

The excuses are a plenty, we nod like the Churchill dog, and then sit down in our seats and wait for the next big thing around the corner. Apparently, one man must first make a profit before 25000 people can move on to a brighter future. This situation is no longer acceptable, it IS time for Allen and the Board to go, with their heads hung extremely low.

There's very few teams that HAVEN'T had any sort of investment in the past 10 years, Sheffield Wednesday are one of them.

The one eyed man is King of Hillsborough and will be for some time it seems.

Very cynical, the reason billy sharps transfer was pulled out for so long was because he was over priced for an unproven striker and we never met the 2 mil asking price. If the club really wanted to dupe supporters into buying season tickets surely they'd have meantioned a bigger name against the 2mil, someone like earnshaw, or would at the very least have presented a list of big name targets, not people like jermaine easter and unnamed young prem reserve keepers. i also like how everyone has assumed that it was our rich asian investor who has invested elsewhere, as there's clearly no other rich casino owners in asia. it's very easy to jump on the club bashing bandwagon after a couple of ****ty weeks but nobody seems willing to offer any realistic possible solutions that don't evolve around some rich guy coming in and taking all our problems away out of the goodness of his heart.

Good read compost but i dont agree. We wont get Sharpe, he will go back to the pigs and losing Macca isnt a bad thing. Just injury prone and Cardiff will find that out im sure.
will it ever happen
