Sheffield Wednesday suffered a 1-0 defeat to Hull City on Wednesday afternoon and Adam Reach was one of many players criticised by supporters for his performance. The 26-year-old didn’t make much of an impact at Hillsborough and was hauled off early in the second-half as a result.

Reach frequently relinquished possession, failed to find teammates with balls into the box, didn’t beat his opposing marker once in the game and showed little to no creativity. Jacob Murphy replaced him after the hour mark and fans made their feelings felt.

Against Hull, Reach played for 63 minutes, made 30 touches, completed only 64.7% of his 17 passes, whipped in two crosses without finding a teammate, faield to create a chance, made two tackles, failed to make an interception, failed to register a shot on target and failed to make a successful dribble.

The 26-year-old has made 26 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring and creating six goals. Reach has been a regular under Garry Monk, but he may lose his place in the side against Brighton & Hove Albion (January 4). Murphy made much more of a contribution in half the time Reach had against Hull, so he could start on Saturday.

  • Monk as a big job as swfc and I don’t think he as the balls to do it,the first 11 are poor and the bench is pointless so they can’t be any talent coming through the ranks therefore he as to get rid of 20 players and replace them.

  • On the subject of Billy Elliott , er i mean Adam Reach , he seems to have gone downhill this season , he had a good game at Middlesborough , and seemed to do well at Forest , but the sharpshooting of last season has fizzled out altogether , and as usual he goes into challenges as though he is made of polystyrene , as for Jacob Marley , err i mean Murphy , he gives the ball away far too often , far too many players are in a comfort zone and need to be quickly knocked out of it ,we need far too many touches before moving the ball , and the pass back to the keeper to hoof it up field for Niuhu to fail to head it is becoming an all too often Groundhog day situation , it is not a time for panic as the same players minus the ill Fletcher had taken us to third position before the team took to the field with white flags waved , i have heard for Palmer and Fox’s heads to roll, but the defence hasn’t been too bad until we have got Tom Lees back , a few need moving out in January but in the Summer we need some hungry young players bringing in , some of our old guard are now on the way down and wallowing in the comfort of inflated wages that they are not earning , get Forestieri back beside Fletch A S A P , they are our only fowrwards who score consistently , and get Kieron Lee on instead of Reach .
