Mandaric voted in

League One Sheffield Wednesday

Just got back from the EGM. Mr Mandaric was voted in unanimously - I didn't see one person raise a hand against the proposal. Here's to a bright future for our club.

This is great news for Wendnesday and football as a whole. As an adopted Sheffielder of 5 years I've always looked out for Wednesday's results having been a great admirer of Chris Waddle as a lad and been stunned at how such a great club has been handicapped by so many unscrupulous moneymen.

Mandaric has form for reviving the fortunes of clubs with potential and I'd say Wednesday have even more than Pompey and Leicester.

I know the owls on the thread won't agree but I'd love to see United and Wednesday both in the Premiership. If clubs with the fanbase of Blackpool and Wigan can do it there's no reason why two historic well supported clubs like that can't.

Fair play to the bank and creditors as well for taking a hit on their money for the good of the club. Some showed more willingness than others to compromise but what a boost that the club can now get on. Hopefully now the fans know the money spend will go on the club attendences will pick up and promotion follows.

The only potential downside is the trigger happy Mandaric destabalises team affairs but he's shown before he will until he has the right man on baord.

Thanks for that Bellion, always nice to hear posiive comments from other supporters, but if you had to endure years of flack from half brained Blunts (and its the majority of them too) I dont think you'd want to see them do well, i want them to see how it feels when your beloved club suffers years of financial mismanagment, almost going under completely and yo-yoing between Championship and L1 and we'll see how much they'll mickey take. But thanks for your comments anyways dude ok

I can't describe the feelings at the moment...it was either the pickled gurkin with mi chips at lunch time...or I'm genuinely having feelings of....joy.

How good does it feel to be a Wednesdayite at the moment ?

Last time I felt like this was in the back of my Austin Mini 22 years ago.

Thanks Carl.

It still all seems so unreal, we have been let down and disappointed so many times.

But now the future is here and it is called Milan!!
