Shouldn’t have lost last night. Didn’t deserve it. It wasn’t a bad performance by any means. I thought Winnall and Rhodes looked very poor and Reach didn’t do a great deal after the first 20 mins. Otherwise, the team and individual performances were ok. 

The forward line was inept. What about the shocking miss by Nuhiu? He also needs to loose quite a lot of weight as he's carrying way too much. I'm surprised that GM is allowing a player to be so clearly overweight. It's not good for the team or the player.

It isn’t just tonight though is it. I fact it isn’t just reach is it????

 

but reach and Hutchinson are the usual suspects for owlstalk to jump all over. Even when the entire team are poo . 

 

 

Might be because we expect more from those 2, they have it in them to play a lot better where as others are probably playing to the best of their ability, and you can't call em out on that.

Horses for courses. Saturday Reach was exactly the right option, but imo Murphy should have started this one.

we looked a tad flat formation wise at times Yet imo the game plan was still spot on, we just didn’t take our chances. Would have won easy otherwise despite so many players being meh.

 

i don’t care what we get for them, two out of Foresteri, Winnall and Rhodes needs to go in January, replaced by a much more prolific forward.    We’ve got players providing the crosses and the chances now, so no more excuses for them. Oh and hurry back Hutchinson.

Iorfa was bad again tonight. Against Everton he was continually out of position and if you watch the action, just about all their chances came because he either wasn't marking up or had gone walkabout. 

It was exactly the same last night. I know he's not a regular cb but reading the game should be fundamental to a footballer. Other teams will see this worrying weakness in our defence and exploit it. That's also fundamental to football management 

 

He wasn’t the only one. This is why Hutchinson is such an important player, he can cover the channels left open by our defence. Which is what he’s been doing since he joined us.

We are talking of needing a 'prolific goal scorer' and I fully agree. But what are we doing wrong with Winnall. Prior to us buying him, he was one of tye most prolific goal scorers in the Championship! Likewise Jordan Rhodes. Yet as soon as they put on a Wednesday strip, down they go. A pgs doesn't become a non-scorer overnight, except when they sign for us..There must be a reason for it, but what, I don't know. And how can a side that scores 4 goals in the first 35minutes away on a Saturday, then go  145 minutes and fail to score. 

Our main fault is INCONSISTENCY, and until this is tackled, we are destined for mid-table mediocrity. The answer - I  don't know!

Very disappointed last night. But upon reflection we weren't as bad as people make it. We had 2 clear cut chances you HAVE to take and a penalty not given surprise surprise. Hull had about 2 shots all night and took there opportunity.  We tactically looked disciplined but in the attacking phase we where too disjointed.  Fletcher ties this link for us both linking play and in the box arielally. We move on. Need a reaction Saturday and positive one. People should expect this from Wednesday only we can go from a brilliant away demolition to a defeat and look timid in 3 days.  It's the Wednesday way.

Well that was fkng disappointing. Only Borner worth a shirt. And the A63 was closed at the roundabout. Confined to history as a bad night out.

 

Roll on Satdy.

Tonight was being a Sheffield Wednesday fan in a nutshell. 

 

 

 

Exactly that.

 

We were all talking beforehand of the wet Tuesday night away game that we all know will produce this sort of result and hoping in vain that maybe, just maybe we were going to show something that said we’ve turned a corner under this new manager and we don’t have to dread these sort of matches.

 

Fat chance.

If we micro analyse players we could say the same about bannan too but the sane amongst us recognise players like bannan reach and hutch are quality but are not particularly playing well this season, but this site isn’t sane, and most on here can’t understand that even the best players have bad spells of form....

As I said earlier, within a minute of the game ending  the usual reach threads appeared, even though no one turned up today.   And in this thread digs at reach and hutch and certain other players. 

 

Tbf most of the people who who use this forum wouldn’t know a quality player from a dog turd. So why I get wound up and even come on here god knows. 

 

Theres about a couple dozen posters on here who are reasonable the rest are absolute loonball crackpots 

 

Where does that leave me? WTF:

Yours is a respected balanced view most of the time tbf. 

 

Most of the posters on here are either over excited saying we will win the league after one or two good results or polar opposite and ready to kill anything that moves if we lose and berate anyone who isn’t Performing 100% of the time. 

 

If owlstalk contributers were likened to a film character it would be that guy  from the film split and glass.

But all players have poor runs of form, every single player will have it and at our level more so.  In the games they have played poorly so have most of the team, they are human, I have spoke about this before with our fans booing John Sheridan ffs!! I mean we won’t see a player of his ability probably again in my lifetime here and fans booed him for a run of poor form. 

If our fans are expecting our players not to have runs of poor form then they are looking for the wrong things, either they need to think about why they support us , because that’s the way it has been for us and will continue to be, or they need to give their heads a wobble, because at this level and with the players we attract inconsistency is THE ONLY reason they play for us and not a better team.
