Many Sheffield Wednesday fans have discussed the club’s recent transfer business via social media.
Owls fans have not had much to smile about over the last few months of the season and in particular, since the start of 2020.
Sitting in the play-off places over the first half of the Championship season, Garry Monk’s side have now suffered inconsistent form which has seen them drop to 15th in the league standings (BBC Sport).
With football at a standstill at present due to the recent pandemic, fans have been engaging with each other via social media, and they have now taken a look at some of the club’s most recent failed transfers.
YorkshireLIVE journalist Dom Howson produced an article based on the 12 most bizarre signings for Wednesday of the last decade, and included were some names Wednesday fans may have forgotten.
David Kasnik, Nejc Pecnik, Diogo Amado, Rafael Floro, Andelko Savic, Dejan Kelhar, Gary Taylor-Fletcher, Sergiu Bus, Filipe Melo, Darryl Lachman and Urby Emanuelson were all included on the list.
Those aforementioned players failed to make an impact at Hillsborough, leaving little impressions on fans of the club.
Responding to Howson’s tweet on the article via his Twitter account, fans looked back on those players on the list…

I would put Jordan Rhodes in that list Dom. Already had FFP issues, already had a number of better strikers namely Hooper, Fletcher, Joao and FF as well as just signing Winnall. To then spend 8-10m on a player who no one else wanted at that price was strange.

I’ll never forget the miss of the century v Newcastle in cup from almost the goal line
