  1. Perhaps we could give him lots of money and his own treatment table?? No Thanks WILSHERE INTEREST Make of this what you will. Rumours on Twitter claim that Sheffield Wednesday and Rotherham United are among the clubs chasing former West Ham midfielder Jack Wilshere. He is currently a free agent having left the Hammers earlier this year. There are also reports he could go to the MLS.
  2. Soon to be on sale in the club shop (available in blue & white)..... only joking - great to some experience coming in, their contacts could be invaluable when it comes to bringing new players in.
  3. Sheffield Wednesday manager Tony Pulis could make former Stoke City and Middlesbrough defender Ryan Shotton his first signing as manager. The 32-year-old also had a brief stints at Wigan Athletic and Derby County, and spent little over a season at Birmingham City too. He was released by Boro last summer though and now a free agent, he’s dropped a massive hint that he’d be up for linking up with Pulis at Wednesday. He told Stoke Sentinel: “I can still be at Championship level. The January window will get things moving before Christmas and, as fixtures come so quickly, clubs
  4. To be perfectly honest, from what I could see there was not a massive groundswell of support for any of the many candidates being put forward, either in the media or on here. Each and everyone of us will have had a differing opinion of who should have been given the job, Pulis was certainly not the new manager that I personally wanted, but hey-ho he’s here now so I’ll get behind him and hope that he can take us forwards from here. As I see it, no matter who Chansiri had brought in there would be a section of the fan base left disillusioned / unhappy?
  5. The Owls are pleased to announce a three-year agreement with global gaming giants First Touch Games and Score! Hero. The exciting new partnership will see Wednesday’s official strips showcased in-play within a new football game released by the award-winning mobile gaming publisher. As well as its flagship production Score! Hero, First Touch Games also publish other hugely popular free to play football titles, including Dream League Soccer and Score! Match, achieving an incredible 850million downloads to date in over 100 territories around the world. Gino Magnotta, Chief Operatin
  6. Looks like he’s wanting plenty of dosh from us..... Pulis is demanding a salary of around £1.5million a year, plus a survival bonus, and clauses which the club are reluctant to approve.
  7. DIVISIVE PULIS TOPS WEDNESDAY'S LIST. Pulis is heading the shortlist to be the next Sheffield Wednesday manager, little more than a year after owner Dejphon Chansiri backtracked on his Chansiri nearly offered the job to Pulis before appointing Garry Monk, who was sacked on Monday. The Owls are in the Championship relegation zone, following a six-point deduction. Pulis is demanding a salary of around £1.5million a year, plus a survival bonus, and clauses which the club are reluctant to approve.
  8. Comment just forwarded to me from my West Brom supporting mate..... “I always stood by Pulis because he did what it said on the tin - he kept us up. But the football was psss poor at times(excuse French) and he always persisted with playing round pegs in square holes. You will have to suck it up and see.....”
  9. Sven-Goran Eriksson Interested in Sheffield Wednesday Job Despite Tony Pulis Talks By: Nat Goodlad, Site Manager | November 11, 2020 Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson is interested in the vacant role at Sheffield Wednesday, reports Nancy Frostick of The Athletic. This is despite reports from The Telegraph’s John Percy suggesting that the Owls are in advanced talks with former Stoke City and Middlesbrough boss Tony Pulis.
  10. GARRY MONK STATEMENT STATEMENT RELEASED ON BEHALF OF GARRY MONK It is a huge disappointment to be leaving Sheffield Wednesday. It has always been a real honour and privilege to be manager of this historic club. I know from living and working in the city of Sheffield how loyal the fans are to the club and I feel the passion they show for their team to be successful. Arriving at the club last September, I gladly accepted the huge challenge, which was something I was determined to get my teeth into. Making our way to 3rd position in the league at the turn of the year was good
  11. Looks like Bannan won’t be renewing his contract if Pulis gets the job.... Barry Bannan once named Tony Pulis as one of the worst two managers he has had, based on the way he plays. Pulis is believed to be one of at least three bosses in talks to succeed Garry Monk at Wednesday, according to BBC Sport’s Ian Dennis. Bannan played under the 62-year-old at Crystal Palace, although he appeared on just 11 occasions over a nine-month period. And speaking to Open Goal last year, the Owls talisman offered the following insight into the pair’s relationship. “Tony Pulis c
  12. Please God no..... Former Premier League legend Sol Campbell is a strong contender to become Sheffield Wednesday’s next manager after Garry Monk was recently sacked by the club.
  13. Ex-Stoke City boss Tony Pulis new favourite to be new Sheffield Wednesday manager Tony Pulis has been out of front line football since leaving Middlesbrough in 2019. It seems like a long time since Sheffield Wednesday arrived at bottom side Stoke City on Boxing Day last season sitting third in the Championship. They were 2-1 up when the referee's watch slipped into the 90th minute, in fact - but since that incredible injury-time turnaround at the bet365 Stadium, things have gone from bad to worse for Wednesday and Garry Monk. They only won four games in the second h
