The Owls v The Boro 29th December 2020 Kick Off: 19:00 Location: Hillsborough "The game which sees us face one extremely unpopular former manger, when we thought we might've been facing

@wilsoncgp  I think he’s talking to you  

One of the things Pulis said in public in complaint was that they had 6 centre-halves and not a single left-back. I'm surprised it was a complaint, too.

Owell on another day we could have had 3-4 goals easy . No point in being negative we battled the whole game , having a clinical striker would help . Britt looks terrible and akpom not much better , we really need fletcher back as i think hes our best striker by a long shot

A slow, scrappy & sloppy first half cost us today...plus the failure to build on the early 2nd half goal and apply more pressure.

We did more work and created more chances in the last 20 minutes than we did in the previous 70.

Another case of too little too late.


Regardless of Pulis' sacking and the new / caretaker manager effect, this should have been 3 points for us. Would love to know why we were so poor first half. Why we played so much direct football, which 9 times out of 10 just resulted in us giving the ball back to Wednesday.

Especially given that when we played properly, we caused them all sorts of problems.

Overall an extremely disappointing showing today.

McNair and Johnson were appalling by their previously high standards, effectively costing us at both ends. Can’t be losing to poor teams like that and expecting to be in the promotion mix. Serious attacking quality needed ASAP when the window opens. 

Wing should never play again. Tav should be starting every game

Referee hasn't helped though. Usual baffling Championship decisions 

Can’t put any blame on the ref. We lost due to two errors from McNair and our welknown problems in the final third.

    • DZ has already hinted that Fry may be off, perhaps he’s one of the players that doesn’t want to be at the club. 
    • I feel sorry for Johnson, was playing really well before Christmas, creating and scoring. Loan players come in, he doesn’t get a look in and we are worse for it. Spence and Coulson often get called out, alongside the strikers.   I wouldn’t be surprised if Brit, Johnson, Akpom, Coulson and Fletcher are all pretty peed off and want away.  I’m still supportive of Warnock but he needs to take some responsibility. The loan signings seem to have disrupted the team spirit. Too many all at once? Too many straight into the team? He clearly doesn’t rate any of our strikers and Fletcher annoyed him getting injured again when he said he was fit and not signing a new contract.  Such a disappointing end to the season 
    • Just had a snoop in the Norwich club website to see if there was anything "official". Seems like it is an obligation to buy upon promotion rather than an option.
    • The last 4 years have been genuinely horrendous but I can’t agree that this is worse than it was under Pulis. I mean under Pulis there were times we played a flat back 5 of shotton, ayala, flint, friend, Saville. 4 plodders in midfield and Britt stood up top with literally no one within 50 yards of him.  At least this season Neil’s brought a bit of flair in general played people in their actual positions. Admittedly he appears to have lost his *** In this respect in the last few games. I’m not making a case for Warnock’s long term vision by the way, whatever the *** that is. Just that he is marginally less crap than Pulis.
    • Warnock was never going to be the long-term solution, with him in charge expect another mid-table finish next season at best. We'll be lucky not to finish in the bottom half this season, tbh.
