Many Sheffield Wednesday fans have been discussing the club following a tweet about absentees by journalist Dom Howson.
Howson reported that the Owls could be without nine players through injury and suspension in their next Championship game. It doesn’t get any harder for them as they face league leaders Norwich.
The Owls are currently on a torrid run as they have lost their last five games and are now seven points from safety (SofaScore).
The problems are mounting up for new manager Darren Moore, and it really looks like he has joined a sinking ship which seems to be heading for League One sooner rather than later. Perhaps in hindsight the Owls boss might have stayed with Doncaster Rovers, who are battling for promotion in that division.
If Wednesday can get anything from the game against Norwich, it should be a huge morale booster and could turn around their season, but Moore needs things to start changing quickly.
Here’s how some SWFC fans reacted to Howson’s update about the spate of absentees:
Here is how Owls fans reacted to the news:
“On paper we should be doing a lot better than what we are, what do you think the problems are apart form injury’s Dom? Have most players become complacent because they know the won’t be here come season end?”
“Hiya League 1 – we’ve missed you”
“No excuse whatsoever, the players should be playing for their future but they just don’t care.”
“I’m not sure anyone would notice tbh, most haven’t turned up for a game all season”
“The ones who aren’t injured Dom won’t bother turning up either. You would think they’d be playing for the futures at the very least. Most not good enough, all not giving 100% which is indefensible!”
