Many Sheffield Wednesday fans are reacting to a tweet from Dom Howson which highlights how manager Tony Pulis has been piling the praise on midfielder Joey Pelupessy.
The manager was full of praise for the player after their victory over Coventry City. Howson tweeted out that Pulis said: “He has got a heart the size of a lion and he is a really good kid around the place.”
It is understandable to see why Pulis was so happy with his performance. The Dutchman picked up a 7.3 rating (SofaScore), won six ground duels and four aerial duels. He also made five tackles.
However, it seems like this type of good performance does not come around enough in the eyes of the Owls fan base, with many fans not believing he is good enough. One fan even called him ‘useless’.
Clearly, the player will have to put in a lot more solid performances to impress the fan base and if he does and helps the side stay up, then these supporters will be sure to change their opinions on him.
Here is what Owls fans said following the comments:
Like reach has a good engine and runs around a lot . Oh excellent. Can he actually tackle and pass 1 good game in ages. Thanks for your efforts , but I panic when I see your name on the teamsheet

One of the worst players we’ve ever had. Barely league one standard. But he’s got heart and never stops smiling 👌
