Our Sheffield Wednesday fans here in the Transfer Tavern have still got rather glum looks on their faces and you can certainly understand why that is the case.
The Owls were very excited this time yesterday as their club were gearing up to take on Huddersfield in the second leg of their semi-final.
They did, however, not manage to see the result they wanted as their Yorkshire rivals beat them on penalties after the scores were level.
It’s more play-off pain for the Owls, then, who saw their side crash out of these games last season in the final and so now they need to get themselves back up and at it as soon as possible.
Indeed, the players can’t afford to dwell on what might have been for too long as the new campaign will arrive quickly and Barry Bannan on Twitter has at least referred to the fact that they’re going to bounce back:
Gutted is a understatement. Just wanna thank the fans and my teamates for this season you have been brilliant and we will be back #swfc

Strong words from the midfielder, then, and now it’s up to him and the rest of his team-mates to make sure they stick true to these words.
