  1. https://www.swfc.co.uk/news/2019/january/steve-bruce-appointed-wednesday-manager/ Sheffield Wednesday are delighted to confirm the appointment of Steve Bruce as our new manager. Bruce will begin his post on 1 February 2019, before which long-time coaching associates Steve Agnew and Stephen Clemence will take charge of the team. Agnew will take a caretaker manager role alongside Clemence, while Lee Bullen remains as part of the senior coaching set-up. Bruce brings a first class CV to Hillsborough, with an outstanding success rate of Championship promotions – four to date. The former Manchester United defender, who enjoyed a glittering career as a player, has twice steered both Hull City (2013 & 2016) and Birmingham City (2002 & 2008) to the top flight. Bruce also guided Aston Villa to the Championship play-off final in 2018. The Northumberland product also came close to being appointed England national team manager when he was interviewed for the position prior to the appointment of Sam Allardyce in 2016. He now joins the Owls and the vastly experienced boss will strengthen the coaching team at Hillsborough with the additions of trusted cohorts Agnew and Clemence. Following a stint as Middlesbrough caretaker manager Agnew took up the post of assistant to Bruce at Hull before re-joining Boro as Aitor Karanka’s number two. After his second spell as caretaker at the Riverside, Agnew was appointed first team coach with Bruce at Villa. Likewise, Bruce has a strong working relationship with Clemence, whom he recruited at St Andrew’s as a player. Clemence has previously worked with Bruce in a coaching capacity at Sunderland, Hull and Villa. Bruce will be officially unveiled as Wednesday manager at a Hillsborough press conference in due course.
  2. You're literally over four months behind. https://www.swfc.co.uk/news/2018/august/joao-extends-owls-contract/ Joao extends Owls contract 22 August 2018 Owls striker Lucas Joao has extended his contract at Hillsborough. The 24-year-old has committed his future to Wednesday until summer 2021. The towering forward made the S6 switch from former side Nacional in July 2015. He scored eight goals during his maiden season at the club and introduced himself to English football in fine style with a memorable performance and goal against Arsenal in the 3-0 League Cup win at Hillsborough. His impressive form after joining Wednesday earned the talented hitman a call-up to the senior Portuguese side, where he made his debut against Russia in November 2015, coming on from the bench. Three days later, Joao was named in the starting line-up for Portugal’s 2-0 friendly victory over Luxemburg. Joao spent part of the 2016/17 season away from the club on loan with Blackburn before returning in summer 2017, with three goals on his tally for the Ewood Park side. Following Jos Luhukay’s appointment as Owls boss in January 2018, Joao netted seven times in a revitalised spell in the side during the second half of the campaign. In total, the Portuguese international has made 96 appearances for Wednesday.
  3. Please don't misquote me. I said 2020 because I doubt we'll even reach the play-offs this season. But hopefully we'll have a better season in 2019-20. Hence "ask me again in June 2020".
  4. Who do you think we can afford to get in to replace him, and who do you think would want the job, given the poisonous attitude of many of our so-called fans? Considering that we'd likely need to pay-up his contract, and that it is strongly rumoured that we can't afford to play Westwood at the moment.
  5. It's got to be done, but how do we get terryowl off of our forum?
  6. While ever our stadium is called "Hillsborough" it will never be allowed.
  7. You heard it here first. Or maybe second or tenth... Or would we prefer "Tuna-In-Tins Stadium". It would form an easy-to-remember acronym...
