Sheffield Wednesday have been taken over by a Thai consortium led by businessman Dejphon Chansiri.

Chansiri, whose family owns Thai Union Frozen Group, has acquired a 100% stake in the Championship club.

Owls chairman Milan Mandaric, who had been in charge since December 2010, confirmed earlier this month the club were in talks with potential investors.

"I am very excited at the prospect of taking over control from Milan," Chansiri told the club website.

"I believe this club has huge potential and I can assure all our supporters that I will be working extremely hard to bring the success that I already sense from my short time in your city our supporters so desperately crave.

"My son Att, who was a mascot at the recent Blackpool game, is passionate about football and I know will be my inspiration in this project.

"I have made the same promise to him as I do our supporters, he will not let me forget this until we are back in the Premier League."

The deal remains subject to ratification from the Football League.

Wonder if they will be more outgoing than our Thai owners who we have barely heard a peep from. Maybe not a bad thing though.Rather that then them coming out with all kinds of crazy plans.

Plans to change their name as they don't like Owls where they come from, apparently they banned the popular BBC Greenclaws there, because they got sick of the owl always pissing about every episode, also they dislike the wise as an owl myth, as Owls are actually stupid birds, on account of having tiny skulls.

Happy days at hillsborough, the prospect of a more healthy option of a tuna sandwich at half time can only be good?

Genuinely no chance of Roeder succeeding Gray, he's not going back into front line management he says.

I'd hound the c*** out if he took over.

Yes but when he sacks gray he will be the man to initially take charge,win about 4 on bounce and there we have it glen roeder is officially named as sheffield wednesdays new manager on a 2 1/2 year deal. You know it makes sense pal

Of course Roeder is going to say that now, while another man is in charge. Roeder will be your manager if Gray is sacked. Guaranteed.

He's said it on several occasions prior to coming here.

And I trust we won't need him

Now then don't be surprised if we lose our last 2 games and not even get in them. But yes if we do get in them i have no hope of us winning them but oh well im used to it now.

If you failed to even get in from this position i'd probably nip into the Sportsman or Cricketers and order a gallon of Magnet for you!

Well our chairman isn't messing about, anyone who's been to our place will know the pitch was an absolute disgrace, stemming back to the floods in 2007.

Well we are doing a complete overhaul, improved drainage, new undersoil heating, it's being completely levelled and raised by a couple of feet which apparently means the first two rows of the Kop are going. It's a Desso pitch being laid.

Apparently the away end is getting a spruce up too.

About fucking time with the pitch and the away end.
