Sheffield Wednesday: Fans are bemused with Garry Monk’s use of Forestieri vs Luton

Sheffield Wednesday fell to their sixth defeat in nine league games after losing 1-0 to Luton last night.

Once again, long-time club servants like Sam Hutchinson and Keiren Westwood were missing from the matchday squad but some fans instead concentrated on another strange call from Owls boss Garry Monk. Their focus was on the decision to deploy Fernando Forestieri at left wing-back, despite him being one of the most creative and dangerous players in the squad, having made 56 goal contributions in 128 appearances for the club.

In fact, he has only operated at left-back once in his career, which shows that Monk made an odd decision, one that appeared even worse when he hauled the Italian off at half-time.

That evidenced the fact that Monk had made a selection error with his starting line-up, and though some fans were sceptical of Forestieri starting in an unfamiliar position, they were also critical of Monk for taking him off.

Here is some of the discussion that has taken place about Forestieri’s role against Luton.

What do you make of Monk’s tactical decisions Wednesday fans? Did he make a mistake or was Forestieri not up to scratch? Let us know what you think!
