Sheffield Wednesday will be hoping that winning their first game of the Championship season against Cardiff City is a sign of what is to come from their campaign.
They need to have a very good start as they already have a disadvantage after being deducted 12 points by the EFL, so they have to win three more games to be on zero.
Dom Howson tweeted out an article by Andy Hinchcliffe, who is a pundit for Sky Sports, who believes the Owls can make a push for the top-six this season.
It looks to have come as a bit of surprise to some that support Wednesday, and this is understandable for a couple of reasons. The main one being because they have the points deduction to battle and the other is due to the fact that it is only the first game of the campaign so to be making such a judgement before he has seen some consistent form from the season seems like a very early call.
However it does highlight that the Owls were very good against Cardiff last weekend, and if they can continue to play like this, there is no doubt that supporters of the club could be in for a good season.
Here is what fans said following the tweet:
Very interesting comments from former #SWFC defender Andy Hinchcliffe.
The Sky Sports pundit reckons a top-six push is not out of the question for the Owls this season. https://t.co/Om4SdrbnJL

Anything can happen in football, the quicker we get rid of the – 9 pts and get out the bottom 3 then who knows what the end of the season will bring.

No chance.. we need to stop getting excited. It’s one win.. we are nowhere near playoffs yet.. I will be happy with anything above relegation.

Maybe if on a level playing field. Minus 12 no chance

One game into the season. Can we have a bit of realism. I’d love him to be right but one game at a time
