  1. Börner's adventure: Three years England Arminia's captain of the past season goes to Sheffield Wednesday and explains why this is the perfect time for him and his family right now. Peter Burkamp 08.06.2019 | Updated 50 minutes ago Bielefeld. Julian Börner is curious. For him, a new chapter begins in brief: On July 1 DFB-Sheffield Wednesday. Arminia's captain of the past season has signed a three-year contract with the English second division club. Until the departure there are still some things to do. Next week the moving van comes. The Börners - Julian, his wife Kristina and daughter Emma - give up their luggage, but by no means everything else in the Bielefeld home. Your house will be sublet, a part they will continue to use when it comes to a short break home. The city on Teuto will later remain the center of life. That's how it's planned. "When the little one comes to elementary school, we want to be back," says Börner, who has not come to terms with a return to the DSC, even though coach Uwe Neuhaus and sports director Samir Arabi were very angry that the 28- Year old in spite of oral commitment umendschied. A childhood dream comes true "I definitely have not made it easy and can understand the trouble. But it has always been a childhood dream of mine to play in England. "Two years ago he had already received a concrete offer from England under the impressions of the birth of his daughter and the spectacular last year's relegation in Dresden He gave priority to Arminia. "Now suddenly this economically interesting offer came in. I flew over, talked to those responsible, completed the medical check-up and signed it," explains Börner. Also for his wife fit the arrangement. She will continue to do her part-time job remotely and work on her doctorate. "It's just the perfect time," Börner said, and he has received encouragement from the team and his friends, and even DSC officials have congratulated him on the opportunity. Börner becomes the first German in the history of Sheffield Wednesday (founded in 1867). The traditional club was already English champion. "I'm really up for it and I'm curious to see how I react to the new environment," he says.Another language, significantly more competitive games and new teammates await him. "I'll have to work my way up a new standing," Börner says about the challenge he likes to accept.
  2. Exactly the sort of pacy, creative player we should be targeting. With a full preseason under his belt, he’ll be less susceptible to injury. If our fans are really turning their noses up at Aarons, I’ve genuinely no idea who they’re expecting us to sign.
  3. Yep, he talked about it when he was interviewed recently on the Owls Sanctuary podcast. Waddle said he chose us as he preferred our style of play under Francis rather than Leeds’ Wilko-ball.
  4. Surely has to be either a corner or a contested drop ball. Why have Wednesday been penalised for the referee making the wrong decision? Even with a contested drop ball, there’s every chance that Chelsea wouldn’t have gone straight down our end and won a penalty. That restart has completely changed the game.
  5. Looks like an evil Michael Owen. Get him signed up.
  6. Jos looks like a beaten man. Whereas in the last press conference he actually showed some passion when questioned about his performance, this time he appeared to have absolutely no fight left. Coupled with his labelling of the fans as disrespectful (something which he’s apparently never experienced before in 22 years of management), his behaviour seems to have all the hallmarks of a manager who’s already been told his days are numbered.
