Former Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Carlton Palmer has been sharing his thoughts on owner Dejphon Chansiri and his delay in appointing as the new permanent at the club. 

Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, Palmer shared his thoughts on the club’s decision to keep hold of Neil Thompson as their interim manager after Tony Pulis was sacked back in December before appointing Moore in March.

An easy one to kick off our quiz on the 2020 summer transfer window in the EFL, which player left Birmingham City to join Borussia Dortmund?

On this issue, Palmer said: “I think the bit that’s killed them was, I think he [Chansiri] gambled on Neil Thompson for too long. Held on the caretaker manager, I think maybe he wanted to get to the end of the season and thought they’d be safe and then get a manager in without having to pay compensation.

“It was the wrong move. He should have got the manager in at the time, and they will be kicking themselves, they will be kicking themselves.”

So far this season, Wednesday have won just 12 of the 45 games they’ve played, drawing 10 and losing 23 in the process (per BBC Sport).

Given how Wednesday lost six out of the 11 Championship games that Thompson had taken charge of during his interim management of the team before Moore was appointed, as well as their Carabao Cup clash against Premier League side Everton, it’s easy to see why Palmer thinks the club were too slow in hiring Moore and keeping Thompson on for too long.

With the club having just one Championship league game left before the end of the season with a showdown with fellow league strugglers Derby County, everyone at the Yorkshire club will undoubtedly be hoping that they will be able to pick up a win and potentially secure their place in the Championship for next season.
