Sheffield Wednesday news round-up: Bannan future warning, Moore latest, Chansiri slammed by former Owls man
Sheffield Wednesday still have a small chance of remaining in the Sky Bet Championship for another season, with the Owls currently sitting just three points from safety after drawing with Nottingham Forest on Saturday. Darren Moore’s side now know that they have to go to their relegation rivals, Derby County, next weekend and win in […]Darren Moore’s side now know that they have to go to their relegation rivals, Derby County, next weekend and win in order to be in with a chance of staying up.
Carlton Palmer has criticised Sheffield Wednesday’s managerial track record after a disappointing season for the club.
The Owls suffered relegation from the Championship on the final weekend of the season, meaning that Darren Moore will be preparing his side for life in League One come the summer months.
Remarkably, Moore is the fourth person to lead the Owls over the course of the campaign.
It was Garry Monk who started the season as Sheffield Wednesday manager, before being replaced by Tony Pulis in the hotseat.
After a short spell in charge, Pulis left the club and was replaced by Neil Thompson who held the role on an interim basis until Moore was appointed in March.
Carlton Palmer slams key Sheffield Wednesday figure for not making crucial club addition
Former Sheffield Wednesday player Carlton Palmer believes Dejphon Chansiri is being ‘badly advised’ as he failed to bring in a director of football to Hillsborough to help with player recruitment. When Chansiri spoke to Wednesday’s fan engagement panel last month, he stated once again that he saw no value in an upstairs figure taking control […]When Chansiri spoke to Wednesday’s fan engagement panel last month, he stated once again that he saw no value in an upstairs figure taking control of recruitment and other club matters as he believes the manager should have the final say.
While it’s impossible to say that fewer managerial changes would have made a different, ex-Owls legend Carlton Palmer didn’t hold back in his criticism of Dejphon Chansiri’s decision making.
, Palmer said: “Four managers in one season, that doesn’t work in any walk of life.
“If you keep chopping and changing the person at the top, you’ve got no continuity, you’ve got nothing. That doesn’t work. I still don’t know why he sacked Garry Monk.”
There’s no doubt that Dejphon Chansiri has made some dodgy decisions since entering the Sheffield Wednesday scene.
Having four managers in a campaign has to be up there.
While each decision will have been made with the best of intentions it was always clear that such uncertainty would prove to be unsettling for the squad – something that proved to be the case.
Results improved since Darren Moore took charge and hopefully they will now stick with him long-term as a consistent presence within a club who need plenty of change in the coming weeks, months and years.

In an interview with Football FanCast, ex-Sheffield Wednesday man Jon Newsome has warned Dejphon Chansiri that he will not be able to sell the Owls for £160m. Following Wednesday’s relegation from the Championship to League One, the topic of Chansiri potentially selling the club has come up. However, according to The Sun on Sunday (via The 72), the businessman is not looking to give up his asset. And if such an idea is to be considered, then potential buyers are looking at £160m in order to complete a takeover.
