D-Day For Wednesday

D-Day For Wednesday

Wednesday fans will be holding their breath today ahead of the Owls' press conference at 2pm - where it's expected Paul Gregg will take the reigns at Hillsborough.

Owls Chairman Dave Allen revealed the club were in talks with the leisure millionaire about a possible takeover of the club before the start of the season and media reports are saying Gregg could takeover as soon as this afternoon.

A statement on the Owls' official site said on Wednesday: 'Sheffield Wednesday have called a press conference for Friday afternoon at Hillsborough with regard to the club's takeover.'

Gregg isn't the only interested party in investing in the Owls, with Irish billionaire Sean Quinn also being rumoured to fancy the chance to take the Owls' reigns, but the former Everton director is hot favourite to take the hot seat this afternoon.

The press conference comes fresh on the back of fans group Wednesdayite's plea for the club to keep the fans informed of what's going on with regards to the takeover - and it looks as though those pleas will be taken in to account this afternoon.

Keep tuned in to Vital Sheffield Wednesday for all the latest news on the Owls takeover!

I'll be honest, I'm doubtful that it'll be good news. Dunno whether all these years as a Wednesday fan has made me cynical but its been a long long time since we've had REALLY good news... Time will tell...

Mr Allen - never been a Wednesday fan !?! .... and of course Paul Gregg is a regular on the Kop.... A new owner, that has previous connections with a team that play in Blue, and a few Quid in the bank might be much better than the devil we know (who seems to have the club, slowly, heading in the right direction) .... but on the other hand aren't these the credentials of a certain Mr Bates (who was greeted with open arms by many !!!)

Wasn't greeted with open Arms by me either ... and while the Chelsea Fan has royally screwed things up in Leeds ( ...maybe Bates is a Wednesdayite after all ???) we have stabilised our finances, established some genuine (if limited) assets and consolidated our position in the Championship. It is easy to be lured by the Evertonians cash and a belief that the grass will always be more green ...... then again .......
