  1. Seeing the above news on social media. Sad news indeed - RIP fellow owl
  2. Dunfermline Athletic are set to secure the signature of Sheffield Wednesday defender Isaac Rice (Sun). The 20-year-old is highly-rated and captained the Sheffield Wednesday development squad to a youth league triumph. But he is now out-of-contract as the Hillsborough club prepare for life in League One, following their relegation from the English Championship. The Owls youngster is set for Dunfermline. Rice made his first-team debut for Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup against Exeter City in January. Rice hasn’t been short on offers both north and south of the border but it ap
  3. Sheffield Wednesday have backed off from chasing Cheltenham Town defender Will Boyle, according to Yorkshire Live. Darren Moore is looking to reshape his squad at Hillsborough over the course of the rapidly approaching summer transfer window, with the Owls looking to quickly get out of League One. Boyle impressed as part of a Cheltenham side that won promotion to League One this season and caught the eye of Sheffield Wednesday, who scouted him before he suffered a knee injury at Easter. However, the Owls have now cooled their interest in the defender
  4. Norwich City are interested in signing Sheffield Wednesday wide man Adam Reach, Football Insider Understands. The versatile left-footer, 28, is out of contract at the Yorkshire giants next month and available on a summer free.
  5. Huddersfield Town and Ipswich Town have offered contracts to Jordan Rhodes as they race to sign him on a free transfer from Sheffield Wednesday, Football Insider can exclusively reveal. The 31-year-old has less than two months remaining on his contract at Hillsborough and is set to become a free agent this summer. A recruitment source has told Football Insider that both clubs have tabled three-year deals to the prolific striker in a bid to secure his services.
  6. For me being a Wednesdayite, it’s a case of “No matter how confident you should be - always expect the worst!”
  7. Perhaps we could try hand grenades?? Schalke players and staff have been attacked with eggs by their own fans following their first relegation from the Bundesliga in 33 years. The club suffered their 21st league defeat of the season in a 1-0 loss at Arminia Bielefeld on Tuesday. Returning to Schalke's stadium early on Wednesday, the players were met by up to 600 of the club's fans. Gelsenkirchen police said fans had already started lighting fireworks and flares near the ground after the game. "Once the team arrived and stepped off the bus there were severe protes
  8. I agree that players may be ‘trying’ and ‘want to win’, but I really can’t believe that any player knowing that they won’t be here next season is going to put as much into his game as someone that is. With just a matter of weeks until the season ends, most of these players will already know whether they are staying or not and their agents will already have been busy touting their players to other clubs. Having so many players who’s contracts end at the same time is yet another piece of inept planning / lack of forward thinking in the running of this football club.
  9. Not sure how long before away fans will actually be allowed back into grounds?
  10. Half-a-dozen Championship clubs credited with interest in Rochdale striker Stephen Humphrys. The 23-year-old has returned from a horrifying career-threatening facial injury while on Southend's books two years ago to be one of the leading strikers in League One this season. The former Bury and Fulham youth has a reputation for his power, dribbling and hold up play and has scored 10 goals in 24 starts even as Rochdale have struggled at the bottom of the table. The72 claims that Stoke, Nottingham Forest, Blackburn Rovers, Sheffield Wednesday, Bristol City and Preston North End have
  11. Sheffield Wednesday are in the race for Rochdale forward Stephen Humphrys. The 23 year old has the style of an old fashioned centre forward, good at holding the ball up and has a fierce shot. The Owls are one of a number of Championship sides thought to be keen, alongside Bristol City, Nottingham Forest, and others, ahead of the summer.
