Sheffield Wednesday endured a bad night last Friday as Middlesbrough took a 2-1 victory in our latest Championship tie.

With a few players clearly being below-par in the match, Tom Lees’ defensive errors stand out given the role he played in both goals, but some fans on social media were happy to share the blame around when it came to why we couldn’t at least muster the efforts to take a point on the day.

Another Adam Reach wondergoal set the pulses racing again but as he took his moment to shine, plenty of fans pointed out what a flop Lucas Joao had been after his own recently improved performances. The Portuguese forward got the start from head coach Jos Luhukay following his brace against Bristol City ahead of the October international break.

Sadly for us, the 25-year-old didn’t live up to his billing and for some Owls it wasn’t a surprise when it comes to the rough and tumble of the Championship, and they questioned whether he had a role to play and we could keep carrying him when he turns anonymous.

  • Joao is indeed an enigma , he is as mentioned above better as an imact sub , but Joao alone cannot be blamed for the Friday shambles , 13 games without a clean sheet speaks for its self Dawson seems to have lost the ability to deal with the high ball as he did last year , the midfield were toothless , we again resorted to the airiel ball in the last ten minutes ( Fletcher and big dave were never going to beat Flint and Co in the air ) , we needed a midfielder on to increase the supply line to the front in the last part of the game , as far as geting rid of Joao i think the likes of Jones , Fox , Boyd , Abdi should all be got rid of before Joao , after all he does score goals

    • Certainly unfair to pick him out in isolation but his burn bright or turn anonymous style of play does naturally lend itself to criticism on twitter I’m discovering. I did mean to add at the bottom he’s the least of our issues in my mind, it either clicks or it doesn’t for him, but when it clicks we benefit. Boro isn’t probably the right game to judge anyone on, although I’d have thought Fletcher would’ve done better given his experience but maybe he’s not as 100% as we’d all like yet?

  • Joao should go now
    Gifted not , confident not and can play er Not.he has had his chances more than any other players, times up and hope we can get a decent more chances plz . Pulis said they would have felt robed if they drawn because they played better ,not in the first half and they couldant score either so beak it pulis. How many more players we have bought are tragedys.foresteri can win a game but if we gonna get some moneys for him now we can’t sell penny cos there is nobody to replace his speed and scope of the game .teach is on fire with his screamers but he canot
    Keep the top scoring job.when is hooper back? Just goes to show wot the manager has to do .hope n pray.
