Many Sheffield Wednesday fans are reacting to the news that Darren Moore is the new manager of the club and will take over immediately from Neil Thompson.
Moore was at League One side Doncaster Rovers and was doing a stellar job as they are currently sixth in the division (SofaScore). In total, the manager had taken charge of 77 games (Transfermarkt) and had won 36, drew 14 and lost 27.
It is quite surprising to see him make the move, despite the fact that the Owls are in the division above, as Wednesday feels somewhat like a sinking ship during current times, especially with them in a huge relegation dogfight as they are six points from safety and have lost their last four games (SofaScore). Owner Dejphon Chansiri will be hoping that this appointment can turn fortunes around sooner rather than later.
Here is how fans reacted to the news:
“I am absolutely gobsmacked!! Happy, but gobsmacked!! Welcome to the roller coaster Darren, strap yourself in, & wish you all the best in the world”
“Big Dave as West Brom supporters called him.”
“Can he still play? Be decent next to Lees and Dunkley”
“Speechless. I’m back on side”
“You bet he is. Come on DM. Keep us up”
“Attacking football please and put the ball in the net , that’s all we want”
