Sheffield Wednesday: Fans wanted to see Massimo Luongo earlier than they did

Sheffield Wednesday: Fans wanted to see Massimo Luongo earlier than they did

Some Sheffield Wednesday fans may have got what they wanted when Massimo Luongo was finally brought on to the pitch as a second-half substitute, however a number of them had wanted to see the Australia international a lot earlier than they did.

Whilst the Owls were on the right end of a 2-1 result against Brentford with thanks to a brace from Steven Fletcher, things could have been very different for Garry Monk following the final whistle if the Scottish forward did not have his way in front of goal.

There had been questions regarding the manager’s initial squad selection for the game at Hillsborough and the 27-year-old’s omission from the starting XI was clearly one talking point on Twitter.

Indeed, when he was finally brought on to replace Sam Hutchinson for the last 15 minutes or so, that case appeared to be made even stronger as Luongo made a telling defensive contribution.

According to the data by WhoScored, the Aussie got to work straight away defensively as he managed to make one tackle, one interception and one clearance to help Sheffield Wednesday to victory.

Fans had mentioned they were unsure what Luongo had to do to get selected, whilst one even felt Monk should be arrested after continually omitting the midfielder from his line-up.

Here are just some of their reactions…
