At Wednesday Evening’s fans forum, Sheffield Wednesday owner Dejphon Chansiri told fans that the club was now officially up for sale and he was confident that there would be plenty of interest in purchasing the club.
Few can argue that Chansiri hasn’t put his money where his mouth is with reports of £70million odd investment since his arrival, but even fewer can argue, whether by his design or bad advice from others, it has been effectively wasted – especially on a player purchase front.
DC: Thank you for everyone who came tonight and letting me be part of the swfc family. One day you will have a new owner but while I am your chairman I will do my very best and never do anything to damage this wonderful club #swfc

The problems at Hillsborough are well known with Financial Fair Play concerns and a clear desire to get high earners off our books as a priority and Chansiri said he would focus on ‘fixing’ the FFP issues whilst trying to attract a replacement owner, but he wouldn’t be drawn on January transfer deals.
With a split in the fanbase when it comes to Chansiri, I think it’s fair to say the majority have been slightly shocked by his decision as they were looking more for a Jos Luhukay replacement and a better plan to get us back to better days, as opposed to seeing him walk away.
The split won’t go away as a good number on social media were pointing the fingers at those voicing complaints and concerns for…
And with that, the toxic fans finally killed a golden goose……

There are others who disagree vehemently with that type of suggestion, so tensions aren’t going to get easier any time soon.
