Tottenham Hotspur loanee Josh Onomah made his debut for Sheffield Wednesday in last weekend’s clash with Stoke City at Hillsborough.
The 21-year-old came on as a substitute replacing Joey Pelupessy with just over 20 minutes remaining in the game, and whilst he wasn’t on the pitch long he certainly began to show fans what he was capable of.
It’s fair to say he didn’t actually do anything of real note in the 2-2 draw given the minutes he had, but the little he did do showed fans that he could certainly be a decent addition to our squad and is capable of being quite tidy with the ball and his passing when he needs to.
#swfc have got to take pelupessy out of our midfield and I think Onomah would be perfect for that replacement. Pelupessy is too sloppy and gives the ball away way too much! He either goes backwards or to Bannan and we can’t keep doing that. Onomah would give us the attack we need

Onomah looked very good. I disagree with Pelupesseys. Again if you don’t notice him he’s done his job. Which for his role is classed as a very good game. I won’t be shouting shoot to him ???? but he has been too inconsistent this season.

Jordan Thorniley easily my MOTM today. Single handedly prevented us getting absolutely slaughtered. Pelupessy shouldn't ever see the starting XI again – comically bad. Onomah looks like he might be a decent addition. Happy to take the draw all day long after that start. #swfc

Great come back. Def point gained after way we played. Esp in the first half. Like the look of onomah. wants the ball. Can see him fitting in a central 3 of behind at front 2 or 3. On to forest now….. #swfc

With the fans above impressed as they took to social media to praise his performance, for those who remember his spell with Aston Villa in the Championship last season, what he’s capable of isn’t a surprise. The main question in 2018/19 is, can he show more consistency for us than he did them.
If he nails the consistency we could have a massive player on our hands.
