  1. Gary Lineker has already donated £140,000 to British Red Cross as part of this. https://www.dailystar.co.uk/sport/football/gary-lineker-donate-couple-months-21801787
  2. It’s not all Wednesday fans looking for someone to blame. Some are accepting they’ve made an error. Whilst others will always look to deflect any bad publicity elsewhere.
  3. This is a thread about Wednesdays possible punishment for skirting around the FFP. Why do you feel that you always have to deflect onto United? You claim McCabe has used every trick but these must have been legal as United have never been punished. Or are Scarborough Holdings an ‘only on paper’ company too? Why don’t you try staying on thread for once and just keeping this about Chansiri’s possible infringements of EFL FFP and not bringing rivals into it without any hard facts/proof which you require others to provide. Or is it again a one sided blue tinted view from yourself? Would you be saying EFL we’re turning Championship into a farce if the investigations were against another team that provided you with a better chance of promotion? No you wouldn’t. You’d be calling them out for what they are.
  4. Isn’t the issue that the company who bought the ground was created 12 months after date Owls are claiming the sale was agreed on? That was one of the stories being bandied about. https://www.thestar.co.uk/sport/football/sheffield-wednesday/latest-owls-news/sheffield-wednesday-hillsborough-sale-has-appeased-efl-land-registry-update-raises-more-questions-491462
  5. Or in fairness Forestieri as he got done by FA despite a judge stating lack of evidence.
  6. From reading EFL statement it's more about the timings/date of sale that has caused Owls to be charged. Villa and Derby sold their ground in the same year as their accounts were filed. Seems Chansiri filed sale in an earlier year despite dates on the land registry being after the accounts were filed.
  7. This is link to Sky Sports story https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11703/11861341/sheffield-wednesday-charged-with-breach-of-financial-rules-by-efl And from official EFL site for those that need it 😏 https://www.efl.com/news/2019/november/efl-statement-sheffield-wednesday-charged/
  8. Haven’t they ended his contract as he was out injured due to a leg injury sustained in the car that two colleagues were driving under the influence? HIs contract is up in June 2021 and Derby Owner tried to change contract to stop Keogh being paid his £25k wages whilst out injured for next 18 months for a fault of his own doing. Hardly same with what McBurnie has done. By that I mean he didn’t injure himself (or anyone for that matter). And no I do not condone drink driving of any sort. Personally I would be fining him a hefty figure though at a minimum and making him work in the community for remainder of his contract or ban (whichever was the longer).
  9. Owls Wins So Far / Current League Position Luton Town / 17th Barnsley / 24th Reading / 20th Middlesbrough / 21st Huddersfield Town / 22nd Stoke City / 23rd Wigan Athletic / 18th So in actual FACT you haven’t beaten anyone currently above 17th and that would make Moistened right. 😉
  10. It doesn’t say ‘according to national reports’. But I understand what you are trying to get at. what it does state is: “The fresh claims are made in The Times newspaper ahead of an EFL meeting scheduled for tomorrow (Thursday) when the issue of such deals is expected to be high on the agenda.” So the only paper that brought this through initially was The Times. Other news/media outlets then picked up on their piece of journalism. I suppose once it’s in The Star or Beano you’d believe it then. Funny how when it’s Blades related you are willing to use ‘according to national reports’. Or any other little digs you can get in at them as per the court case comment. Based on you not reading The Times link I would assume it’s difficult for you to read so ask one of your friends where the ignore button is and I’m asking you to politely use it please.
  11. Unless you have hard facts then certain posters on here will not allow spurious links to media outlets. Some posters will not accept details unless it’s come direct from EFL and signed off accordingly 😂
  12. Let me spell this out to you. That is not the link I asked for. If you want an official link from EFL about stadium then I require one for this. Also weren’t you very vocal about EFL not placing Owls under a soft embargo? 🤭 I wouldn’t normally mind but you weren’t the one asking for link. Speedy did and he’s not arguing half as much........yet 😂
  13. To stop the arguing then, do what you tell others. The internet has all the details. Go and look for them yourself! You ask for a link about it, one was provided. You said I didn’t have any facts yet when someone asks you for a link you can’t provide it. Show a link where EFL have stayed they accepted the accounts. If you can’t then stop baiting others for links so you can try and make excuses about them. I want proof direct from EFL like you’ve asked for regarding stadium investigations.
  14. Where’s the link from EFL to back up your statement? 😂. I find it amazing that people claim it as fact with no link from EFL to back it up 🤣🤣🤣
  15. I never said it was a good link. It’s the only link I could find regarding it. Please show me where I stated it as a fact? It also wasn’t my point so I await an apology regarding that. I also highly doubt the EFL would add something to their site stating they were investigating.
  16. https://www.thestadiumbusiness.com/2019/09/25/sheffield-wednesday-told-clarify-hillsborough-deal-ahead-efl-meeting/ Based on all the whinging Steve Gibson at Middlesbrough has done regarding Derby’s ground sale I would assume it’s safe to say he will be one of them.
  17. Here’s a link from Twitter to John Mothersoles comments after Wednesdays game https://mobile.twitter.com/mikemccarthy/status/1164175636354805761
  18. If the Blades have only won 11 in 6 months and are very poor then how bad does that make the Owls who are a further 10+ points behind? And don't start with the 'bad injuries' etc as Blades could coincide their slump in form with losing Coutts. I await next season when you guys are above us again and you start with the 'Mind The Gap'. May have to tag this post as a reminder or will you do your usual about turn and spout some other rubbish to make yourself still seem the be all and end all of all Sheffield Football Knowledge? ---------- Post added 23-04-2018 at 09:53 ---------- Blades, Millwall, Brentford, Preston, Leeds, etc are all above Owls due to the numerous injuries sustained by the Owls 'massive' squad. If it wasn't for injuries Owls would have been promoted back in September. Or so some people would have you believe. :roll:
  19. Of course I’m happy. We were promoted to a ‘harder’ League and have held our own despite not spending much money. Other big spending teams have found this season more difficult and have used every excuse in their arsenal to try and cover their own teams failings. Maybe we should resurrect the thread where you stated Clarke wouldn’t get 10 but then you keep moving the goalposts on most of your comments!
  20. The article above therefore can’t be justified as being utter and total rubbish if everyone is allowed their own opinion. As the article was correct about Bannan and Hooper at the time then this suggests it holds more weight than your own opinions yet you constantly try and force them down our throats. If you aren’t slagging off Uniteds transfer dealings, you are having a go at the direct way of play (that only you seems to see), lack of investment, how hard this league was going to be or that Clarke wouldn’t get 10 goals! Each time you have been proved incorrect but yet you continue to try and influence everyone else.
  21. Tops, look at the date of the article (5th December 2017). Neither Bannan or Hooper were injured when article was written as they both played against Norwich on 9th December. Hooper was not injured until around 23rd December. I'm surprised you didn't know when they were injured seeing as its been mentioned about number of injuries constantly since around August LOL. Not so much total and utter rubbish based on that is it? Also interesting that you were 11 points behind us as of 5th December 2017 but even though we've had a horrendous run of games (your opinion) we have increased the points difference to 17 points despite us buying poorly in January (again your opinion). With regards to the FFP situation, he probably had no idea cos a fair few on here were adamant there were no issues with FFP either. Elliott also appears to be an Owls fan if you take a look at that page for longer than 30 seconds. That's probably a reason why he hasn't said what United required in January.
  22. I never stated it was incorrect just that it could look that way as he took so long in providing the statement. In fairness Top likes to think he’s in the know with Blades so it’s six of one and half dozen of other. My initial comment stands in that if Top had provided that quote when Grappler first queried then all the bickering could have ceased. Did you also attend the Steering Group? If not then how do you know Tops quote is correct
  23. Top, why didn’t you mention that quote after the initial query by Grappler? It now seems like you are making the quote up to cover your own back. If you’d said this initially then the bickering wouldn’t have continued. Unfortunately as no other Owls on this Forum appear to attend the Steering Group you could say anything and it would become gospel. In future I would suggest stating all quotes immediately as it will avoid people calling you out on things. At the minute you now look like you’ve lost the argument and are clutching at straws to save face!
  24. Who’s arguing? Speedy asked for a link so one was provided. Why is this even part of a Transfer Rumours thread anyway?
  25. Found this link with number of touches (select Chalkboard tab then touches) https://www.whoscored.com/Matches/1192520/Live/England-Championship-2017-2018-Sheffield-United-Sheffield-Wednesday Shows Clarke with 26 and Rhodes with 23
