Many Sheffield Wednesday fans are reacting to a tweet about former Owls forward Lucas Joao before they face his new side in the Championship this weekend.
Journalist Dom Howson tweeted: “Big challenge for SWFC today to try and stop in-form Reading striker Lucas Joao.”
This has received a lot of reaction as the forward has 17 goals in 28 Championship appearances this season (Transfermarkt) and Darren Moore’s side are starving for a goal threat.
The Owls desperately need points as they are six points from safety (SofaScore), and supporters probably wish that they still had the forward, even though his record at Hillsborough wasn’t the best as he only managed 29 goals in 127 appearances (Transfermarkt).
Joao’s current team Reading are in a great situation as they are battling for the playoffs, so any points for the Owls in this fixture would be very good for new manager Moore.
Moore was flying high with Doncaster in League One but decided to jump ship and move to Wednesday – if they can pick up some results starting with stifling Joao this weekend, he won’t regret his decision.
Here is how Wednesday fans reacted to the news:
“Considered not good enough for us, says it all really.”
“We all new he had the talent and abilt to do this another player who’s inconsistent with us and goes on to do it elsewhere”
“Absolute guaranteed to score. Nailed on certainty”
“Not good enough for us”
