PREVIEW | Wednesday -v- Derby County

Saturday’s draw with Barnsley extended Wednesday’s winless league run to seven games. It’s difficult to see where that first league victory will come for Jos Luhukay, in truth. While acknowledging the obvious caveat that this current crop...

RAMBLE | Barnsley v Wednesday

I love watching my team. I hope that I’ll always love watching Wednesday and that I never lose the passion and optimism. Despite our terrible injury list, our awful form and league position, I couldn’t wait for the trip to Oakwell. I really...

PREVIEW | Barnsley -v- Wednesday

I’ll get straight to the point. Days like Saturday are becoming far too frequent. They’re becoming almost common enough to make me consider jacking it in. I’m not bothered about supporting a football team that lacks quality and, to a...

“We must be careful but not afraid!” – Jos

Joey Pelupessy made an upbeat appearance at today?s press conference. The 24-year-old Dutchman smiled his way through questions about his move to Wednesday, settling into Sheffield, and the prospect of a relegation battle. Unsurprisingly, the...

PRESS | Luhukay and Wildsmith both calmness personified

Enter Joe Wildsmith.  A youth team product, still just 22 years-old and pencilled to be a worthy recipient of the ?England?s number 1? chant at some stage in his career. Possibly inspired by the life-long Owl?s game-changing save in the derby at...

PREVIEW | Wednesday -v- Birmingham

It’s interesting how a new manager instantly encourages a change in attitude. Jos Luhukay has overseen three 0-0 stalemates in the League, a run that would have seen his predecessor depicted as burning effigies. Maybe the poor run in the Bullen...

PREVIEW | Middlesbrough -v- Wednesday

Progress has been steady in the first few weeks of Jos Luhukay’s term as Wednesday manager. Changes have been made both on and off the pitch, and results have slowly improved. Luhukay’s team is unbeaten thus far. His willingness to trust...

RAMBLE| Wednesday-v-Cardiff City.

A new journey. So, we have arrived at a new era. We have pushed the reset button and now we?re in the ?up all night to get Luhukay? times. As is the case with every new beginning, there is renewed vigour and hope. As it was the first league game at...

PREVIEW | Wednesday -v- Carlisle

Friday night restored a little pride to the support of Sheffield Wednesday Football Club. Jos Luhukay oversaw a battling, organised performance during his first match in charge. The entire ‘feel’ of the Wednesday performance was lifted. The...

RAMBLE | United 0-0 Wednesday

Ah, the derby, there?s nothing quite like it. Thankfully a long week at work had been a nice distraction from the building tension, stress and nerves. Still, you find yourself imagining the game; the optimistic moods when you imagine a great...

PREVIEW | United -v- Wednesday

The build-up to the second meeting of Wednesday and United could hardly be any different to the first. The interest in the September meeting was simmering from the moment the Championship fixtures were released. Remember, a large portion of...

BLOG | A United View Pt. 2 – The Return

Wednesday return to the Lane after a seven year break, with a heavily depleted squad and a new manager on his fifth day in the job. So much attention has been paid to the Hillsborough circus in the past couple of weeks that United – home side and...

LUHUKAY | Angela meets new Owls boss

Jos Luhukay was introduced to the media yesterday in a slightly giddy atmosphere fuelled by pie, chips, and Sky TV. I know! While the cynic might say nothing signals change more than serving pies to the press, someone with a sunnier outlook would...

RAMBLE | Carlisle 0-0 Wednesday

After dismantling Christmas on Friday, the day of Cup Magic started with an exciting trip to the tip. What a wondrous sort of place this is. You queue patiently to be the next one to dispose of your crap, remembering all the time that it?s poor tip...

JOS LUHUKAY | German football expert on new Owls boss

On New Year?s Day I contributed to the ?half term report? blog. It was on a day where we?d just been roasted by Burton and were managerless. A grim day. By Friday of that week we had our new guy in charge. Not the much touted Lambert; not the...

PREVIEW | Carlisle -v- Wednesday

It’s been one of those weeks. Saturday will arrive and many of us will have forgotten that a game is taking place. Many have forgotten that they support a football team at this point, instead believing they frequent a static circus. There have...

BLOG | Tide of change sweeps across Hillsborough

‘Tis the season to be jolly. Or not, if you have any interest in Sheffield Wednesday Football Club. A series of events since the Middlesbrough defeat have only created further worry, confusion and furthered the general apathy within the Owls’...

RAMBLE | Wednesday 1 – 2 Middlesbrough

The festive fixtures. Football fans across the country rub their hands with glee, as every team has 4 fixtures between the 23rd of December and January 1st. I?m not sure Wednesday fans were in the eager camp. Sam Hutchinson had given a rousing...

PREVIEW | Wednesday -v- Boro

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Not for Wednesday fans. Despite a slight improvement against top of the table Wolves, many fans are planning for a future without our current Head Coach, Carlos Carvalhal. As it stands, Carlos can leave...
