PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! It was all too little too late. A point away to relegation rivals Derby County yesterday afternoon was not enough to keep Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship. The Owls have been on a downward trajectory since reaching back-to-back play-offs under Carlos Carvalhal. A big summer rebuild lies ahead after one of the worst seasons in the club's modern history. Yorkshire Live's Wednesday writer Dom Howson and fellow journalist/Owls fan James Marriott discussed the fall-out from relegation on the latest episode of the Singing the Blues podcast and where the club go from here. You can subscribe to the podcast via Apple Podcasts, on Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts by searching for Singing the Blues. Here is a flavour of the kind of thing you can expect. James Marriott (JM): I watched the game and I didn't really feel anything at full time. I've been through my hurt. It probably happened months ago when I faced up to how disconnected I feel from this football club. That was the painful bit for me. It happened long before relegation was confirmed or even looked likely. I have watched maybe two or three games properly since Christmas. I can't sit here and just say 'I don't care anymore' because I wouldn't be ranting if I don't genuinely care. I do feel something but that is an anger and frustration about a bigger picture, not about what's going on the pitch. The thing is this is not my club anymore. I don't feel any connection to Sheffield Wednesday anymore. The owner has taken it away from me and other people. He's the owner and he can do what he wants. Step one of now sorting this out needs to be to get rid of every single one of those players. I know you will disagree with me but make them free transfers. Pay them off, whatever. I would honestly rather us rot in the lower leagues for years, building up a proper squad than watch any of that lot play football ever again. They are the worst squad of players this club has ever had. Everyone of them should be ashamed of the job they have done this season. I would have felt embarrassed if we had stayed up. I would have been pleased - of course I would as I'm a Sheffield Wednesday supporter - but we didn't deserve to stay up. We absolutely deserved relegation. Those players deserved relegation. I feel contempt for these footballers. Absolute contempt. I would have hated it if they had had that brilliant moment (of staying up) but it is wider than that. The thing is Dejphon Chansiri deserves relegation. He deserves all the stick he is going to get from fans. He deserves all the financial fall-out. I know I will probably get accused of harming the club and no fan has any intention of harming the club by saying these things but the reality is if we started compiling a list as to who has caused the most damage to this club that has led us to where we are now, I think we know who is going to be at the top of it. It is not going to be the fans because it's not our fault. We aren't to blame.

. You've done this and this is your legacy. This is what you have created and this is where we find ourselves staring down the barrel of another spell in League One and it will be a spell. I don't think we will bounce back next season. I think we have got more hurt and pain to come and it is because of decisions that have been made. Chansiri, quite frankly, has to step away from the day to day running (of the club) and he needs to bring in people who know what they are doing. I don't want to hear his reasons for why that is not the right thing to do. We have got to bring in people that understand football and can start repairing the damage that has been done over the last five years. He [Chansiri] got it right in starting his statement with an apology but we need actions now. We don't need statements. I agree that keeping the manager is the right decision but now we need to see things change quickly. The summer is not a time for licking our wounds; the summer is now a time for saying 'right, this project has failed and now we start Sheffield Wednesday 2.0 and start rebuilding.' Forget everything that has happened in the past. Learn from those mistakes and show us you have learnt from those mistakes and start putting putting things right.

Ultimately, the buck stops with Dejphon Chansiri. It is his decision-making that has put Sheffield Wednesday in this predicament. If they hadn't been given the points deduction at the start of the season, they would have stayed up. Who is to blame for the points deduction? That starts at the top. I'm afraid Wednesday have been a sinking ship since the play-off semi-finals in 2017 and nothing has been done to arrest the club's slide. It has been a slow, painful demise. What we have to see now moving forward is a structural change at the top of the football club. Chansiri has talked about his senior management team and said he is happy with who he has in the roles but I think it has reached the point of they have got to bring a chief executive in.

They need someone on the ground dealing with the day-to-day side of the football operation. Somebody with footballing expertise, contacts and a proven track record of success. It is what the club have been crying out for a long time and so many Wednesdayites have been saying exactly the same thing but it is now time for action. Words are no good anymore. JM: There are so many things that we can sit here and say that are needed and that's before we even get on to talking about players. The most important thing is a senior management structure of people that really do understand football and that does mean Chansiri has to step away from the day to day running. There is just no other way this is going to now move forward. Owls manager Darren Moore (Image: CameraSport - Andrew Kearns) We will continue on a downward spiral if we continue the way things are. That's clear. The second thing that we need is a proper recruitment plan and that is linked to the culture of the club. Who are we? What style of football are we going to play? It is great to say so early on that Chansiri has put his backing behind Darren Moore and I'm not sure there would be many fans that would disagree with that but Darren Moore now has to identify the culture of this club moving forward and the senior management team need to go away and make that happen. It is not going to happen in one summer. There's going to be pain a long the way but it needs to happen.
