Things have really taken a turn for the worse following the club’s relegation from the Championship to League One.
Darren Moore’s squad has shrunken significantly, with 10 first-team players all being released. Meanwhile, young and promising defender Osaze Urhoghide has yet to sign the new contract he has been offered, meaning he could be the next one out of the door.
Will Sheffield Wednesday come back up?
Most worrying of all, though, is the situation surrounding wages, with multiple reports confirming that the club’s playing staff have not been paid either in full or on time for the past three months.
Understandably, Palmer, an ex-Wednesday midfielder, is not impressed.
“Really is a complete and utter mess,” he told TIF. “They’ve let 10 players go, which they’ve had to do, because of the wage bill.
“They want to recruit players. How are you going to recruit players when the club’s in turmoil?
“It’s shambolic at the moment and it doesn’t seem to be getting any better. I’m hearing not just about the salaries, I’m hearing that they could face a points deduction before they even start in League One next season. Something needs to be sorted out at the football club.”
Without a doubt, it really is a bit of a circus at Wednesday right now. Dejphon Chansiri has to get his house in order quickly; otherwise, it could be a very long season in League One for the Owls.
