It turned into a busy weekend for Sheffield Wednesday fans, as we finally ended our long search for a permanent manager after Steve Bruce tucked his tail and ran, and Garry Monk’s arrival at Hillsborough has been roundly applauded.

Having retained regular caretaker manager Lee Bullen on his coaching staff, although we have the Championship clash with Huddersfield Town to prepare for on Sunday when the September international break comes to an end, the big question is will regular friend and assistant, James Beattie, join him with us.

Now 41-year-old Beattie has been a regular sidekick for Monk in his previous managerial spells, and the former striker and England international also managed Accrington Stanley for a period, but as news broke of the potential reunion for the duo, plenty of Wednesday fans on social media couldn’t get past the Sheffield United ties from his playing days.

Ultimately if Monk feels that Beattie can positively contribute to some success for us, I’d ahve thought that’s all that matters.
