Sheffield Wednesday slipped to a fourth straight Championship defeat in Saturday’s game against Norwich City at Hillsborough.

Four second half goals with no response from the Owls just increased pressure on manager Jos Luhukay and we’ve now conceded 12 goals on the bounce in those losses, and in fairness, the defeat could’ve been by a greater margin.

We created the same number of chances as the visitors, but only got four on target and the overall performance was probably summed up by Whoscored as not a single player received a rating of 7+.

Atdhe Nuhiu was as good as the scoring got with 6.93 and completing the top five were Adam Reach, Joey Pelupessy, Cameron Dawson and Liam Palmer.

It was a poor day all around and there’s no hiding from that, but given the manner of the defeat and already existing gripes amongst fans when it comes to the gaffer and the players who have seemingly been sidelined for no real reason, the former earlier in the season isn’t going to create much wriggle room as tensions grow further.

  • There is a pattern emerging where we have a decent or good first half then concede in the second into the Leppings lane end whoever plays in defence , once one goes in the white flag is raised , this was particulary hard to take as it was our last home game before the armistice , it was a good job our armed forces showed more resolve than our players , do we do away with the manager ? , an easy decision on the face of it , but is it his fault or the players ? , Is the chairman telling him to play the young ones rather than Hutch or Westwood in an attempt to rid the club of the high earners that are coming to the end of their careers ? , if so the chairman has to shoulder a large portion of the blame , having sacked Stuart Gray who was operating on a shoestring finishing 13th , before he allowed Carvalhal to bring in the injury prone or over the top high earners ( Jordan Rhodes especially ) who are sucking the life out of the club , since the Wembley defeat to Hull the club has been on a steady downward spiral , Reach apart we seem to have brought in squad players rather than first teamers , and unless you are a season ticket holder the match day prices can be eye watering , what a mess
