A lot of the Sheffield Wednesday fan base are reacting as journalists Dom Howson and Joe Crann have tweeted out the latest update in regards to the ongoing disciplinary proceedings surrounding the club.
Back in November 2019, the Owls were charged by the EFL due to the way in which they sold their stadium to Dejphon Chansiri, per BBC Sport. This was due to the fact that the owner bought Hillsborough for around £60 million at a time that they were struggling financially and due to the sale, they recorded a profit of around £2.5m for 2017-18.
It was hopeful that the club and supporters would know the outcome of the charge by now, and there was hope after there was news to come out from the EFL, but it seems there is still no decision on what will happen to them.
In their full statement, which is quoted in detail by Yorkshire Live, the proceedings which affect Wigan as well as the Owls will be sorted at the end of the current season, with one of the crucial bits of the statement saying: “Relegation will be confirmed for the Clubs in 22nd , 23rd and 24th positions in the Championship table following the conclusion of those matches and will be subject to the resolution of any ongoing proceedings.”
Here is what fans said following the news, with one labelling the statement a “pathetic waste of time”:

What a pathetic waste of time statement. All they are doing is shifting the blame to the panel.

But no mention of when the points deduction would take place, still as clear as mud

Honestly mate it’s a joke 🤣 what you think outcome will be? .. to me it’s unfair to deduct points and and potentially relegate Wednesday when season is done it should apply for next season.
