Dejphon Chansiri has set a date for another Sheffield Wednesday fans forum, with this one likely to be one of his most important yet. The Owls owner will meet with supporters on December 20 at Hillsborough and a statement released by the club on Tuesday night said “no subject will be off the agenda.”It went on to say, ‘the chairman is urging in particular any fans who use the platform of social media to leave untrue and potentially damaging posts to attend and address any concerning issues face-to-face.’The mood around Hillsborough has been bleak for most of this season with Wednesday currently in 15th place in the Championship table – just five points off the relegation zone.The Owls have registered just one win in their last eight games and social media has been awash with calls for manager Jos Luhukay to be sacked.On Saturday the travelling fans at Ewood Park for the 4-2 defeat to Blackburn Rovers voiced their disapproval and many … [Read more...] about Sheffield Wednesday owner Dejphon Chansiri to address fans’ concerns at open forum with ‘no subject off the agenda’

The piece was published by a Dutch magazine, Voetbal International, following a visit to Sheffield ahead of the recent Steel City derby.Among some of the more eyebrow-raising comments in the piece was Luhukay saying that he would probably have left football had Wednesday not come in for him last January.Luhukay said: "If this club had not come, I might have already stopped. "I had never thought about the Championship, never even seen a match in England. "But I still wanted to take the opportunity to experience another football culture."A section of Wednesday fans, perhaps understandably, lambasted the Dutchman on social media and online forums.Goalkeeper Cameron Dawson targets upward movement as Owls look to climb tableIt was certainly a bizarre comment to make, … [Read more...] about Sheffield Wednesday column: Was Owls boss speaking Double Dutch or being too honest?

0 Have your say THE ONSET of autumn may be a source of regret for many, but not necessarily for Sheffield Wednesday. A summer of discontent in many ways saw the club make unfortunate headlines, culminating in the announcement early last month that confirmed the Owls had been operating under a temporary transfer embargo since April – before it was finally lifted on August 17.Early-season results in the opening few weeks of the season, allied to a heated fans’ forum in which chairman Dejphon Chansiri came in for criticism from supporters, added to a growing sense of disquiet surrounding the club.But with the onset of September, allied to the possibility of more injured players returning to contention for a starting berth and some much-needed headway in the transfer market, Wednesday – seeking a third successive league victory this afternoon – are moving towards a better place.A first signing in seven months arrived on deadline-day in the … [Read more...] about Reading v Sheffield Wednesday: Positive vibe begins to spread around Hillsborough
