With an opening day 3-2 defeat for Sheffield Wednesday as newly promoted Wigan Athletic took all three points in our opening day of the 2018/19 campaign, plenty of summer worries for Owls fans were simply exacerbated ahead of the meeting with owner Dejphon Chansiri at the beginning of the week.

A pretty open talk, lots of honesty and even some bite and passion from the man at the top might not have removed concerns fans had ahead of this season, but it certainly seems to have helped calm them for many in the fan base.

What would now do the club wonders is the first three points of the year as we host Nigel Adkins’ Hull City at Hillsborough tomorrow.

Taking to social media to discuss the upcoming game, plenty of fans were in agreement that the best chance of us getting those three points and that first win was for midfielder Joey Pelupessy to miss out as one of a few recommended changes manager Jos Luhukay was given – if he was reading the social media thread at any rate.

The Dutchman has shown glimpses of what he’s capable of but the hope was he’d have fully adjusted to the Championship this summer after his January arrival, but his individual showing against Wigan was poor – he wasn’t alone and he wasn’t the only change fans were on board with either.

With a number of sensible options suggested it’s also fair to say we could see exactly the same lineup with hopes they do better.
