Former Wednesday midfielder Burton O’Brien has stuck the boot in to Wednesday by revealing he wasn’t enjoying his time in the Championship with the Owls.

The midfielder left the club in the summer to return to the SPL with Falkirk, alongside former Wednesday team-mate Lee Bullen, and he revealed to the Daily Record that he’s enjoying the style of football played by the Bairns in comparison to his time at S6.

‘I never really enjoyed my football in England. Although I played over 100 games I wasn’t enjoying it. I wasn’t homesick or anything, I just didn’t enjoy the style,’ he said.

‘The English League was great and I enjoyed the atmospheres and the full stadiums every week but it was more the actual way the football is played.

‘I’d say that in the Championship there are only four of five teams who actually try to get the ball down and play. Unfortunately, Sheffield Wednesday aren’t one of them.

‘I enjoyed my time there and the experience but I really didn’t enjoy the football.’

Maybe that’s the reason BOB was non-existant in seventy-five per cent of the matches he played in in the famous blue and white, and the reason the Wednesday have done so well since his departure…

Cheers, BOB!
