Journalist Dom Howson, who writes for Yorkshire Live, has tweeted about centre-back Julian Borner, which has caused many of the Sheffield Wednesday fans to discuss the player.
Since signing for the club, the German defender has made 37 appearances, keeping ten clean sheets and even managing to pick up one goal, per Transfermarkt. Clearly manager Garry Monk sees him as a good quality player as he has started him in a lot of games this season and at the age of 29, he looks like he will be in the starting eleven for a good couple of seasons.
However it seems like fans believe he is hit and miss and whilst some are appreciating his spell at the club, others believe he could have done better. The negative views perhaps come from a frustration at the team sitting 16th in the division with only four games left, per BBC Sport, with the German having played a major part in a largely disappointing campaign.
Here is what fans said following the tweet:
A year ago today, #SWFC completed the signing of Julian Börner.

Started well but he’s so slow. An area where we definitely need to improve

We’ve paid alot of money for worse, so for what he is, a decent deal

No one heard of him, so for him to come and get into the starting 11 I feel like he’s had a good first year. Can only get better playing with the likes of Big Dom

Hate to think where we’d have been without him

More ups than downs, I can’t remember too many bad performances from him!
