Well the press conference that Wednesday fans were waiting for has happened, but it’s not the news we were waiting for…

Or was it news at all?

We were all (well, most of us) expecting some good news on the takeover front at Hillsborough after chairman Dave Allen revealed that he was in discussions with former Everton director Paul Gregg earlier this week.

But instead, Allen came out and blamed fans group Wednesdayite for the collapse of the proposed takeover, after the group failed to agree to sell their 10 per cent-plus shareholding in the club to make the takeover more manageable.

And the Owls supremo had some harsh words for Owls fans, saying in a statement today: ‘I would suggest the majority of fans get together and sort the minority out.’

So it looks as though the gap has widened between Wednesdayite and the Owls board, and any hope of a takeover in the not too distant future has been ended.
