MILAN Mandaric is banking on the victory against Colchester proving a turning point in the Owls’ fortunes.

He was pleased when the team made their breakthrough after his pre-match address to them - and hopes that they will turn it on against Tranmere at Hillsborough tonight.

But the chairman’s speech will be the exception rather than the rule.

“It’s not my style,” he explained. “But I was just trying to do something.

“I know there is more quality than we have given so far to our supporters.

“I just asked the players to go out and express themselves, and told them that if they put the effort in the supporters would be with them all the way.”

He feels that the 2-1 result against the U’s could bring an upturn in home form: “Let’s hope so. I feel it should do and will do.

“The key is enthusiasm and playing together. On Saturday I saw us playing together for 90 minutes and putting in 100 per cent effort.”

He admits that results have been terribly disappointing since he took over in December with high hopes of automatic promotion. Then the target was reduced to the play-offs, and now the goal is to make sure of safety.

“It has been a terrible season for me. I know it’s not been easy for our supporters, and I’m quite sure the players have not enjoyed it,” he said.

But he feels there is more to come from the team: “I do believe in the players’ desire and quality.

“It’s going to be a test, but I think players can see what they are capable of when they express themselves properly, which they did in the last game.”

The chairman also described as “total rubbish” a claim made last week that gary megson would be sacked if the Owls failed to beat Colchester.

Megson is set to follow his policy of not changing a winning side.

Was running the other day and after a few miles I ran past this couple walking briskly towards me. It was a lovely end to the day so I kindly wished them a 'good evening!'.... However immediately after I ran past them, I suddenly thought: 'I recognise that bloke?'. So I doubled back and I couldn't believe it to my surprise it was only Mr Manaric (taking in the evening air of Sheffield). In my haste, and with this the first thing that came into my head, I shouted out 'Milan our Saviour!!!' and proceeded to raise my arm in the air, to which he acknowledged with a grateful wave. TBF not even the music on my iPod could have made me run the next mile as quick as I did, I was buzzing and couldn't believe I had just passed the main-man himself. Proper LEGEND!

Ha, typo error. Thousand apologies to the great-man himself.

Couldn't tell I was running that fast (tounge in cheek).

TBH I didn't get that good a look of her, as I was breathing out of my arse!!

Milan deserves the freedom of sheffield for saving this club.

i dont know what hes like to work for, but he inspires me - hopefully hes done the same with the players

He deseves it for getting rid of that last board and shambolic management of a great football club.
