Sheffield Wednesday: Fans react to EFL update on misconduct charge

Sheffield Wednesday: Fans react to EFL update on misconduct charge - Sheffield Wednesday News

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.

Here is what fans said following the news, with one labelling the statement a “pathetic waste of time”:
