Moses Odubajo may have an uncertain future at Sheffield Wednesday after a disappointing debut season. The 26-year-old was inconsistent at the back, was transfer-listed midway through the campaign, lost his place in the starting lineup and spent a number of months out injured.
Odubajo has one year remaining on his deal and is providing backup to Liam Palmer at right-back, but supporters from the Sheffield Wednesday Fans Forum are torn whether he’s worth keeping for another season.
Matthew Brown: “He has set the place alight on several occasions – just not in SWFC’s favor!”
Derek Prigmore: “Nowhere near as bad as fans have said he is. Better going forward than Fox or Palmer but not the greatest defender. Keep him just.”
Victoria Parry: “A bit unpredictable.”
Richard Mcgrath: “Bin him.”
Ted Fowler: “Moses adds loads of pace to the side. He’s got a brilliant first touch, but the lad cannot (make) a simple five-yard (pass). Keep him. He’s better than Palmer, just.”
Adam Broomhead: “Play him on the wing.”
The 26-year-old was a regular under Garry Monk at the start of the season, but he lost his place in October and December, featuring just three times across the board in 2020. Odubajo managed only six league appearances sine October 2019.
He spent the last two months of the season injured and is likely to be backup in 2020/21 – Palmer has proven more reliable. Osaze Urhoghide is breathing down Odubajo’s neck too, so it remains to be seen if he’ll be kept past 2021.
