Sheffield Wednesday: Fans blame Garry Monk for heavy defeat

Sheffield Wednesday: Fans blame Garry Monk for heavy defeat - Sheffield Wednesday

Many of the Sheffield Wednesday fans were fuming with Garry Monk after they witnessed their side collapse to Blackburn Rovers in front of a home crowd on Saturday afternoon.

Having witnessed their side upset Leeds United in their Yorkshire derby last weekend (BBC), they would have surely been keen to have built on that impressive result when the Ewood Park outfit came to visit. However, things could not have been further different from the script the Owls would have written prior to the encounter, with Lewis Holtby opening the scoring.

Massimo Luongo was then shown a red card before Blackburn opened the floodgates via the help of a Cameron Dawson own goal and a second by the former Tottenham Hotspur man. Darragh Lenihan made it four before Sam Gallagher just added further salt into the wound when he made it 5-0 just before the final whistle (BBC).

Indeed, fans were quite rightly fuming with the result and the performance they saw from their players, however Monk appeared to take the brunt of the blame from many of those on social media. The Hillsborough outfit’s manager was handed significant criticism for his tactics and team selection, with one supporter going as far as to say that he was the only person at fault for the Owls.

Some even suggested that he got his tactics wrong, whilst a couple of others made the claim that his decisions regarding substitutions were ‘a joke’.

Here are just some of their reactions…
