Carlos Cavahal is a manager on a mission. He has only
had one season in English football but it has proved
a rewarding one as his Sheffield Wednesday are in a
dream position after virtually securing a play off berth
to a place in the Premier League.
He now needs to build on the green shoots of recovery that have delivered
a season that has thrilled Hillsborough with sublime
football at times so that he can propel his promising
team across the line.
Carvahal knows that the task he is facing is monumental as his competitors have
had many years of investment and preparation and
no end of financial rewards allowing them to field
players considered to be of a much higher quality,
so Carvahal soon realised that to mount a challenge
he had to capture talent that long suffering Owls fans 
had not seen since the days of  Paolo De Canio, who used
to beguile opposition defenders.
Carvahal managed to sign Fernando Forristieri and  Gary Hooper, both of
them with superb credentials, for "bargain" fees. He went
on to shape a team of promising individuals, some on 
loan and some like the irrepressible Sam Hutchinson. As
he knew the Championship was certainly no easy ride, he
built from the back, partly by bringing players over
from his native Portugal to complement the players
the previous manager Stuart Gray had forged into a
back line, where the much experienced Loovens was paired
with Lees to create a  formidable partnership. Lucas
Joao was a particular coup for Cavahal, the young striker is
in the Portugal squad for the Euros and his ability to
attack and worry defences is a true joy to behold and
we're certainly going to be seeing more from him in a
Sheffield Wednesday shirt.
This is by far the best season Wednesday supporters have enjoyed for 16 long season and
we're about to witness the next exhilarating installment
on Saturday, as the Owls attempt to get the better of 
our closest rivals Cardiff City and secure sixth spot on our
way to the Premier League. It will be good to finally be
back where this massive club belongs. WAWAW.
