What did everyone think to Van Aken ?

 

Was a little wonky early doors, gave away a couple of free kicks where he might have done better.

But..Settled into the game, got the measure of his man and didn't put a foot wrong 2nd half.

Even played the decent forward ball.

 

Still think Borner is our best option on the left of the 3, but van Aken did a lot to lessen any worries we had from his performances a couple of years ago.

Trying to be optimistic today, but I genuinely can’t see anything other than a Cardiff win.
 

However the last time I felt like this on an opening day was when we had Brighton away and we went and won 1-0. 

 

A good start couldn’t ever be more important.


Turned out better than that Brighton game 

👍

Great result against a team that finished in play offs last season. We’re still a work in progress so hopefully more to come. Well done Monk, well done Wednesday.

Better side than Cardiff,  Great effort from the lads 

 

I honestly thought Windass could be great for us, with all that energy and determination he gives us something we haven’t had for a while , great finish and honestly think he might bag double figures for us this year 

 

Rhodes, nothing needs to be said , everyone knows what he is and what he does but I think the whole team is behind him and everyone is dying to see him back amongst the goals

Well done Sheffield Wednesday. That was one the most convincing opening day performances I have seen for a while.

 

It is not very often that a team makes Cardiff look pedestrian, but we did that today and thoroughly deserved the three points. As the commentator said, minus nine definitely sounds a lot better than minus twelve.

 

UTO!

BTW did anybody else think that Monk looked quietly satisfied, when he came on the pitch with that wry smile? Good for you Mr Monk, your player choices this window, the team choices in the two games so far and the up and at 'em tactics all combined today to get that result. Even Van Acken looked at home in his role today. Well done!

Can never remember if it's mustard or custard with humble pie, but a decent slice for me tonight. Good stuff. 

 

It is 37 years now since we won in South Wales on the first day of the season, and went on to get promoted to end our longest period away from the top flight. 

 

Will history repeat itself? 

 

Errr, no. All the same, terrific start.

A great away performance for me. Coaching staff and players should be proud of that. A gritty and hard to beat mentality and you can just tell they're really up for this challenge. 

Early doors but I'm confident for this season. 

Well done lads
