Many Sheffield Wednesday fans have been blasting the performance of Barry Bannan in their 0-0 draw away at Portsmouth in League One on Tuesday night.
It was a game which very quickly turned into a ‘take a point and run’ scenario for Darren Moore and his men after Massimo Luongo was shown a straight red card just shy of the 70-minute mark at Fratton Park.
Nonetheless, Wednesday did well to hold out despite an unorthodox makeshift defence, although they could have done better in possession and when the ball was in the attacking third of the pitch.
Should Sheffield Wednesday start Bannan?
Bannan was particularly guilty of giving the ball away far too often – 14 times in total, the fourth-most out of his teammates (SofaScore) – while some Owls supporters were critical of his set pieces.
Indeed, the midfielder misplaced six of his crosses, by far the most out of anyone on the pitch, as he also lost out on four of his duels, and failed to score with either of his shots on goal (SofaScore).

These Wednesday supporters blasted the Scot’s performance on Twitter, with one going as far as to claim that he was a ‘liability’ against Pompey:
“Bannan is a liability.”
“Barry Bannan’s set pieces are on par with mine on a Sunday. Shocking.”
“Bannan has been absolutely abysmal”
“Bannan is genuinely the worst corner-kick taker on this planet”
“Bannan is just a passenger at the moment. Terrible”
“Can someone else please take the Sheffield Wednesday corners. Even the tea lady must be better than Bannan for God’s sake”
