On Sunday, Sheffield Wednesday took a 2-1 victory over Bristol City at Ashton Gate to enter the October international break in the perfect manner.
The three points and our fifth win in 12 Championship games has drawn a line under a disappointing summer with plenty of off-pitch issues but little in terms of the transfer market like fans had hoped. The game saw us move into the Play-Off spots for the first time this season and whilst there’s a long way to go, there is good reason for optimism from the fans under manager Jos Luhukay.
The development of some of our youngsters and their progress so far in 2018/19 is another positive.
Will a lull in football for the next couple of weeks owing to the international games, it’s always a time for reflection and taking stock and whilst there are some minor quibbles about some players still on our staff, the outlook is definitely more positive than it was before a ball was kicked.
The last game fans a few talking points actually, Lucas Joao’s brace, the Play-Off position boosting confidence and even on loan Tottenham Hotspur youngster Josh Onomah came in for immense praise for his own showing on the day.
What counts now is keeping that going when real football returns.
