Sheffield Wednesday have regressed this season, but their chairman is standing by his recent business.
The Wednesday chairman has provided vast amounts of money with which to improve the playing squad at Hillsborough, but finds his side closer to the Championship's relegation places than they are the top six.
An unprecedented injury crisis is perhaps the biggest contributor to Wednesday's downfall, although many of those who have struggled in recent weeks were signed during the Chansiri era.
Speaking at Friday's Steering Group meeting, however, the Thai businessman refused to blame his team of recruitment advisers for the Owls' current issues.
"I don’t think our recruitment has been wrong but the players are still human beings. Sometimes they can play good. Sometimes they can play bad," he said, as quoted by the Sheffield Star. "I believe we have done good recruitment otherwise we would not have gone to Wembley and finished fourth.
"We have been unlucky with a lot of injuries (this season). We also had a lot of injuries in the first year but nobody noticed. At that time, we had a loan window but now there is no loan window. It doesn’t mean that in the last two years we have not had injuries."
Many Wednesdayites do not agree with Chansiri's assessment, however, with some of them concerned about what may happen in the coming transfer windows, given how close they are to Financial Fair Play limits.
Here's what they're saying on Twitter...
Adam Reach aside our strongest team is the same one from the play off final in 2016. How can he defend that? To complain that defenders stock has risen and then spend £8m on Rhodes doesn't represent anything but delusion.— john richardson (@jeevesy61) 12 March 2018
Abdi, Emanuelson, Jones, Boyd, Rhodes? Is Chansiri saying they have been good signings and improved our team? Why not admit mistakes and ask for help and go from there? Why do the same thing over and over and expect different result, as the famous saying goes? #swfc— OFR_1992 (@OFR_1992) 12 March 2018
Abdi, Matias, Rhodes, Fox, Emanuelson, McManaman, McGeady, Butterfield, Jones, Winnall, Sougou, Wiggins, McGugan, van Aken #swfc— Nigel Short (@nigel_short) 13 March 2018
#swfc somebody please tell DC was joking when he defended our transfer business. Yeah fitness has played a part but we have bought shite too— Oli North (@Owl79Oli) 12 March 2018
I’m really worried now, if he can’t see how awful it’s been.— Adrian Stephenson (@Kingsidney99) 12 March 2018
If he thinks the likes of, Fox, Jones, Boyd, Buttetfield and Rhodes have improved us then there is no hope for him.— keiron wilcock (@keiron1972) 12 March 2018
How can chansiri say our recruitment hasn’t been shite yeah we’ve had injuries but if our recruitment was good we wouldn’t be fighting to stop in this league #SWFC— Luke Askham (@Luke_Askham) 12 March 2018
Should Sheffield Wednesday fans be worried by their chairman's comments?
