Which Sheffield Wednesday do you prefer?

Over the years some of us have seen many different different Sheffield Wednesday line ups, with different styles of play, and some teams with no style of play....

 

Forget the names in the Manager polls, and choose the style of play you think would be most effective at securing promotion, with the current squad, in a Championship where possession based football seems to be standard.

Anybody selecting the latter needs to give their head a wobble . It’s dire , and despite chucking millions at it , playing this way still got us nowhere

Can't we use both dependent on the opponent and if one isn't working?

 

Why do we have to stick with one?

Has to be A, Carlos & Jos both failed by insisting on option B.

  MIx it up . Direct attacking football and when we are four nil up with five minutes to play switch to keeping the ball and win four three lol we keep the ball simply to let the opposition get back into position .

Gonna be a tw@ lol   The thread title doesn't match the poll question.

What style do I prefer, well that's a good ol' tick next to Option B, love me some possession footie.

What style do I think would be most effective this season at getting us promoted, well with the players we have and the disrupted pre-season, it's no question... Option A, nice and direct and organised without being flamboyant. 

 

So yeah, I have different answers to the two different questions... do I win a prize?

Trying to avoid playing the ball sideways for the majority of the game. 

 

Putting teams under pressure when they are in possession of the ball.

 

Trying to move the ball forward quickly and play to the strengths of an aggressive centre forward. 

 

Others may have different opinions on this, and in all fairness I am aware there are many different brands of each option. Obviously, I'm an advocate of this approach at Championship level. 

 

Hoof ball is not on the table.

Can't we have a bit of both?

 

:duntmatter:

And old saying in football is you have to "earn the right to play" football. 

 

Once you have the lead, then you need to be able to switch styles and have your opponents chase the ball around the field.

No....., but I agree. If we had the best players in the league, with intelligence and technical ability in all positions, then possession based football would be everyone's preferred style of play.

Consider the question is what is the default style of play, which you would start each game with?

 

I agree style of play should change later in the game, depending on the current position. 

 

At four nil up, we can pass it around like Brazil.

The slow boring possession based football we played during Carlos’s second and third seasons was absolutely abysmal to watch.

If direct attacking football means our centre halves are going to be hoofing it up to a striker at every opportunity, then you can keep it

 

I prefer structured attacking football

 

And you can stick your POMO up your arse

I haven't voted in your poll as it's a loaded question...your little picture of Megson rather gives the game away. We don't have the players to become a silky passing team...too many errors per game would cost us. However, no one but a Megson sychophant would want to go back to the horrible style of play he foisted on us. So, the answer is simple. We need to play to our strengths and I believe that is a high press and counter attack, something similar to what Leicester played in their PL winning season. They didn't have the best players either but they defended for their lives and had a system that suited the players they had. They also had  a strong work ethic coupled with a great team spirit. We need a manager that can get that from our squad.
