It’s been nearly 50 years, but earlier today Sheffield Wednesday picked up their first away win over Sunderland since 1969, and it’s three points that should – and I emphasise on *should* – make sure that relegation isn’t going to be a worry for the Owls.
They say that ‘no player is irreplaceable’, but in many ways Fernando Forestieri is exactly that for Sheffield Wednesday. However, that doesn’t mean that he shouldn’t be replaced anyway. He’s on a tightrope now.
A new season is almost upon us, and while we aren’t expecting quite as many signings as last year, Carlos Carvalhal is delving into the transfer market for Sheffield Wednesday once again.
Terrifying. That’s what last night was. Personally, I’ve never seen a side come out of the blocks like Brighton & Hove Albion did against Sheffield Wednesday yesterday evening, and as Carlos Carvalhal said, as much as Wednesday deserved to go through, Brighton didn’t deserve to go out.
