It's a tough gig for Jos just now, some thoughts on his predicament

The game against Ipswich was a very difficult watch, I expected it wouldn’t be easy but it was worse than that. Many fans thought the worst and gave it a miss as, despite what the official figure says, there were more like 18,00 there than 22,000. Clearly many of the players who started the game are either just not good enough and/or their confidence is lower than a snakes belly at the moment. But post-match JL came in for as...

Reflecting on a difficult week for the club, an open letter to Mr Chansiri

Dear Mr Chansiri,

At the end of a difficult week for SWFC I thought I should write to you with a few thoughts.

I don’t know about you but I think our beloved club is in a bit of a pickle at the moment. You have bought into our club and put a great deal of your own money into it, but the strategy of simply throwing money at achieving promotion has failed; the trust you placed in Amedeu Paixao (who appears...

Club accounts, FFP and all that

A few weeks ago I wrote a letter to Mr Chansiri in which I asked 8 questions that were related to that infamous survey question and the whole business concerning club strategy, finances and ticket prices, see article titled “That Survey” and published on WOTMT on 5th February. 3 of those questions related to FFP and the club accounts. I didn’t get an answer to any of the questions but I did receive an invitation to a meeting with Mr Chansiri...

A quick trip round an FA Cup dilemma and other goings on at our club

Jos Luhukay and Katrien Miere have inherited a bit of a mess at our club – in relative terms I think it’s worse than the one that Meggo inherited in 2010/11 – it took him 20 games and a pre-season to have a significant impact on it. There are the industrial scale injuries, the general level of player fitness, team confidence, patchy form, some players having been side-lined, a wall between the first team set up and that of the...

We need to do our bit in the relegation struggle

In his struggles in the Italy of the 1930’s the writer and activist Antonio Gramsci described the need for “pessimism of the intellect and optimism of the will”. That just about sums up what I feel as a Wednesdayite right now. Given the shambles that the club has been this season – well described by Paul in his last piece on here – it is right to be intellectually pessimistic about how we got here, we are right to ask who...

Looking for light in a very dark room

Yesterday out of nowhere the clouds parted and the real truth dawned. If you judge a season by the rule of achievement versus expectation then I can climb up on a rock and defiantly declare that in 40 years of watching Wednesday this is the most disappointed and let down that I have ever felt.

Over those forty years yes we’ve seen some rubbish, we’ve wasted money on big time charlies who only came for the dollar and massively underachieved, we’ve...
