Sheffield Wednesday lost 2-1 to Middlesborough in the finale of the Championship season on Wednesday evening. The result meant that they ended the campaign in 16th, which is four positions lower than the season before, and a lot of the fan base are reacting to a tweet from Dom Howson following the end of the term.
It has been Garry Monk’s first season in charge, and it looks to be one which has not impressed Owls fans. Howson, who is the Sheffield Wednesday writer at Yorkshire Live, tweeted some stats which portray how bad the campaign was.
According to the journalist, since the 22nd of December, they have only managed to win four times, pick up 17 points from 23 matches, win one of their 12 home games, and only score once in the first half at Hillsborough in 2020.
This clearly is a very poor record and it is understandable to see why fans were so frustrated upon reading this. Monk will have to do better next season if he wants to stay at the club.
Here is how fans reacted to the tweet:
Wednesday's Championship record since December 22:
🔵17 points from 23 matches
🔵One home win in 12 outings

This manager is totally overrated. As bad as Jos, possibly worse. Been watching Wednesday since 1968 and this owner and manager combo is the worst Ive seen here. Club rotten to the core. They deserve to play in front of an empty Hillsborough all the time!

Embarrassing and monk believes he deserves the job …. if chansiri gives him a new contract it will be the biggest mistake to date and that’s including Jos and selling the ground to himself !!! Clues less

That’s a sackable record at any level. True players needed moving on but don’t give him any credit for that. They were out of contract and didn’t want to stay playing under Monk.

And the answers were all exiled from training. That’s the biggest issue for me. If that’s the approach, then this manager isn’t the one to take us forward, because we need someone who can lead leaders. Like Bruce did.

Wow… just wow. Where is the real problem, the players or Monk? Where to go? 🤷♂️😳
