Sheffield Wednesday: Fans split on Garry Monk’s decision to exclude Keiren Westwood and Sam Hutchinson

Sheffield Wednesday: Fans split on Garry Monk’s decision to exclude Keiren Westwood and Sam Hutchinson - Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday are in freefall currently as matters on and off the pitch have taken a turn for the worse, with a 3-0 home defeat to Reading the latest setback for Garry Monk’s side.

It has all unravelled so quickly at Hillsborough, too, as the Owls sat third in the table at Christmas but have picked up just one win in the 10 league games since. Now, it seems they can’t buy a point and Monk’s decision-making has backfired, particularly the bold call to ostracise two senior figures from the squad in Keiren Westwood and Sam Hutchinson.

The pair had been regulars for the South Yorkshire outfit in recent years and participated significantly in the two campaigns in which Wednesday made the play-offs, in 2015/16 and 2016/17.

Since Hutchinson was dropped, the Owls have failed to win in five games, yet Monk has made both him and his teammate Westwood train with the under 23s. It may be hoped that their separation will help to improve morale and spirit in the dressing room but so far there is no sign of that; if anything, their exclusion has made matters worse, at least on the pitch.

These Wednesday fans seem to be split on Monk’s action, with some suggesting it was the right move to make while others are disappointed to see two important players no longer involved.

Where do you stand on this divisive situation Wednesday fans? Has Monk made the wrong move to banish these two players or is it for the greater good of the club? Tell us your opinion below…
