Sheffield Wednesday know they have work to do but with Steve Bruce in the hot seat, they’re in very capable hands.
Draws have been aplenty since the former Villa boss took over but that also means his side have stretched their unbeaten run to five league games. With no time now to chop and change his squad, it seems that early on into the job, Steve Bruce is doing very well.
The real judgement on the experienced manager will come next season, when given the backing in the summer transfer window to sign who he needs to improve the current situation at Hillsborough.
A player who is far from a household name right now but could soon be turned into one is Rangers youngster Ross McCrorie, a player that could fit nicely into Wednesday’s midfield.
McCrorie, (who is valued at £900k on Transfermarkt) was reportedly (via the Scottish Sun) of interest to Swansea City during the January transfer window but Rangers were adamant he wasn’t leaving Scotland.
Steven Gerrard clearly rates the youngster highly and since his arrival in the first-team this season, McCrorie has made 24 appearances in all competitions.
His usual position is defensive-midfield yet the competent footballer can also play centre-back or right-back as well. With that kind of versatility, Steve Bruce can find space for Ross McCrorie within his team and in whatever position he feels suits him best.
Sheffield Wednesday would benefit from an extra injection of quality and even though he is 20-years-old, has proven to have the quality to be a star in the Championship.
He isn’t likely to be a player on the scoresheet but what he will bring is quality break-up play and a brilliant passing range to set the attackers free.
Would McCrorie be a good signing for Sheffield Wednesday?
