    • Lederer is the public face of the ownership group. The others are practically invisible and have to my knowledge have never openly talked about their involvement. He is also a billionaire, being significantly more wealthy than the other owners. Tsatsimas is the CEO, and runs the club day to day and doing what Lederer tells him to do (since reportedly Lederer is making the big decisions on his own). Lederer was the one who said in 2017: "Mark my words, we have a bold plan for this football club and I look forward to having Josep lead our team this season and beyond." We finished 7th in 2017/18. Lederer was the one who said in 2019: "Mark my words, my fellow board members and I have ensured that our future is set on a solid foundation of infrastructure and planning" and "We will be the leading football club in the country again".  We finished 8th and now 9th since that. They let Popovic go to Turkey on the eve of the season instead of saying "no, it's too late". Then after appointing Gombau they sacked him after 6 months because they thought they could do better immediately. Then they signed Babbel who was a total failure and who made things worse. Now we've got JP who has changed absolutely nothing since taking over. Our club recruitment is a mess, we hand out long deals to duds like Janjetovic while every good player seems to leave almost as fast as they join (Antonis, Ikon) or Lederer won't pay to retain them (Duke, Bulut after his first stint where he scored 5 goals in 9 games). Since we won the ACL we haven't been able to find a top level striker at the same time we've had a top level team. We signed Riera but the rest of the team was average to bad. Santalab scored 14 goals in 16/17 but the rest of the team barely scraped into 6th place. This season we've had Duke filling that goal-scoring role, but not up front because we've had Meier (who will go down as one of the top 5 worst big signings in the history of the league) and Cox (who needs to play up front and with drastic improvements to the service he gets). Fans are over the deflections. We have an academy. We have a new stadium. We have a training facility that isn't crap. Good for us. Where's our next trophy coming from?
    • Hi everyone, I am writing an article for the website of Lucarne-Opposée and I wanted to raise the subject of the descent into hell of the Western Sydney Wanderers.  I came here to collect your feelings and explanations on this issue: what are the reasons that brought the club so low in the rankings? One could mention the poor management of recruitment and the coaches chosen after Popovic, but from your point of view, what would you point out? I know that many of you mention Lederer and Tsatsimas and I would like to know why, they seem to be the main culprits.  Thanks
