Using The Loan Market Effectively

The loan market is something every fan of an EFL club will be familiar with and we’re no different at Sheffield Wednesday. Since the chairman’s first full season as owner of the club we have loaned in no fewer than 13 players, with 15 loan deals out of the club taking place since 2015. At

Laying The Foundations

The new Championship seasons draws every closer with Wednesday now well into their pre-season programme. They have now played two of friendlies since returning to training nearly three weeks ago, one against Bury behind closed doors which they won 3-0, and the other at Lincoln City on Friday night where a Fernando Forestieri strike saw


Thanks, Jack

I’ve already written a couple of these sorts of pieces already, one for Glenn Loovens and one for Ross Wallace, but Jack Hunt is certainly deserving of a mention after leaving the club following three seasons with us. His move caught many people off guard, including myself, as you can all probably tell after I

A Class Act

So, Owls In The Park was a great success on Sunday as expected and arguably the best ever according to many who attended. I unfortunately missed the event as I was travelling back home form Sheffield following a stag weekend in the glorious Blackpool sunshine. There is something that I would like to pick up


Winning Wing-Backs

When Jos Luhukay took over as manager of Wednesday back in January he immediately shifted us into a formation which used wing-backs as he attempted to make us hard to beat and sturdier at the back.

Media Relations

Setting The Tone

I’m not sure it’s always wise to look back at times gone by, but in this situation, I feel it’s appropriate. What I noticed last summer was that there was a lot of negativity surrounding the club, especially on social media.  You can understand why as we had lost on penalties to Huddersfield in the

Preslav Turns Pro

One of the questions I have been asked the most recently was whether Preslav Borukov would be staying at the club beyond the end of his current deal, or whether he would be heading for the exit. I was assured that he would be signing pro terms with us and the announcement that Preslav has


Big Gloves To Fill

Speculation has been mounting over the last few days surrounding the future of Wednesday’s head of goalkeeping Andy Rhodes, with strong rumours suggesting he would be leaving us to link up with former teammate Frankie Bunn as his assistant at Oldham. Well, today the club have announced that Andy has indeed left Wednesday to take

Tough Transition Or A Blessing In Disguise?

Transition is a word that is used a lot in football and I feel we as a club have entered another period of transition this summer, which is certain to end in roughly a years’ time. I say this because as far as I’m aware there are a minimum of 12 players whose contracts with
