Sheffield Wednesday: Fans rave about Barry Bannan despite missing out on Player of the Year

Sheffield Wednesday: Fans rave about Barry Bannan despite missing out on Player of the Year - Sheffield Wednesday News

Loads of Sheffield Wednesday fans have been raving about midfielder Barry Bannan, after journalist Joe Crann tweeted about the Scot to praise him despite the fact he didn’t win the club’s Player of the Year award.

Dominic Iorfa was the man who was given the prize by the Owls fans after featuring 41 times in the Championship, helping the team to 10 clean sheets whilst also chipping in with two goals and two assists (Transfermarkt).

However, in an article for the Sheffield Star, Crann highlighted how vital Bannan was in the 2019/20 campaign despite sometimes coming in for criticism from a section on the Wednesday fan base.

How many career goals did David Hirst score for Wednesday?

Indeed, according to the article the ex-Aston Villa man provided the most assists for the South Yorkshire side (8), whilst also topping the charts when it came to key passes (98), passes (2273), accurate passes (1801) and accurate crosses (72). Added to that he was also in the top four for tackles won (63), successful dribbles (41) and interceptions (47).

Having read the piece from Crann, lots of Sheffield Wednesday fans have been reacting on Twitter with plenty opting to sing the praises of the £2.16m-valued man. One described him as being “one of the best” players to play for the Owls in the last 20 years, whilst another claimed he is the “heartbeat” of the team.
