    We've been banging on about self sufficient for a few years.

    If we aren't by now then someone needs to have a good look at things

    Agreed. We have a number of idiot fans who attend games so we don't want them to have an excuse to chant about where our money's gone.

    to suggest our team is stagnating is mad. completely the opposite. we've actually been caught out by the rapid development of our players. we've developed the core of our squad into top champ/PL players, so it should act as no surprise that there's interest. in every case it's the same situation. every player will want to play at the highest level and when teams are quadrupling salaries, they're going to want to leave.

    if you read the rumours, it's possible we could be looking at winnall, conor, robbo, gus and bree all sold, with morsy fallen through, yids in africa and no CEO. nothing short of disastrous really.

    if all that happens and a top club comes in for hecky, i wouldn't be one bit surprised if he followed.

    I'll believe you before I'll believe practically anyone else outside my immediate family, Tina.

    Tell em to double it, then they can talk to the player.
    Robbo once said he had no big affinity with the Reds, before signing. His football heroes are Staam, Terry & Rio. He is from a big Owls catchment side of Barnsley, but he knows better than to declare himself Deedar!

    If he goes, it will be up to Macca 2 to bring on the next centre half, Jacko, the Spanish kid or whoever...

    Like Winnall, it might be Robbo's best and only chance to properly earn his money from footy. Who are we to begrudge a lad that?

    Think I misconstrued what you said/wanted Kev.
    Apologies for that.
    I saw it on Twitter, some transfer site.
    With hindsight it looks as if most of the sites are pretty unreliable anyway.
    The stuff about Roberts being a Wednesdayite is totally true.
    I don't think I'll be posting any more from the transfer sites in future.
    Have to adopt hubby's attitude.
    Wait until the window closes and see what happens then !
    Thanks for vote of confidence, much appreciated x

    You have always, and will always, have my highest respect, Tina. Truth be told, you're the only person posting on here who I find a little bit intimidating!:D

    We have had our best season ticket sales for many years increased away attendances, we got 6.5 million from stones sale 6 million from Mawson and replaced him with a 100k player (who has done brilliant) sold winnall for 700k if we sell robo for 3.5 or james bree for the rumored 4million we have to spend some of this on the squad... 1. If we don't many fans will be upet with the club getting large transfer fees and failng to improve the team with it.
    2. Even hecky himself said we cannot keep finding these gems.

    We have sold one footballer, who demanded to join Wednesday. For a big profit. A player that many on here didn't rate a few weeks before.

    I aporeciate there are lots of rumours regards our players but instead of worrying and berating the club you support, look at it like it is. It's a symptom of success. We lost Mawson in the summer and many were worrying then. Hell, cast your mind back to the poor run of results during October etc, folk worried then too and we had a full strength side out.

    We can't compete financially but don't think we are going to be mugged off. And realise folk are working 24/7 at the club to make sure we are alright. I honestly think we are a victim of our own success in a short time frame. Folk have forgot we are massively over-achieving.

    The hysteria amongst some of the fanbase is embarrassing.

    Big game Saturday, we are 10th in the second tier. Big clubs covet our players. Shall we go back a year?

    I agree with all that YTBFC.I was looking at a photo the other day with the team lifting the cup at Wembley and 7 members of that squad are no longer with us but we rearranged made a few tweeks and like you say we are 10th in the Championship.We are a solid established football league member with great experience in the back ground.I feel the club are in good hands and we will continue to grow.If players go we will replace them.This happens at every football club in the world, that's why there's a transfer market.Keep the faith.
