"Looks like boom or bust to me" - Sheffield Wednesday fans have their say on Garry Monk's team to play Reading

Sheffield Wednesday boss Garry Monk has made four changes to his starting XI as the Owls look to end their poor form against a Reading side winless in the Championship since New Year’s Day.

In come Kadeem Harris, Osaze Urhoghide, Joey Pelupessy and Atdhe Nuhiu, with Barry Bannan, Josh Windass, Connor Wickham and Tom Lees making way.

Monk’s side haven’t won in the league since the 2-0 victory at Yorkshire rivals Leeds United on January 11 and were heavily criticised by Wednesday supporters after their dismal 1-0 defeat at Luton Town in midweek.

Here’s how Owls fans have reacted to the news on Twitter.

@Matt_Smith_1983 That’s me 100% convinced he picks their numbers out of a hat.

@johnellison Garry #Monk selects his resignation team, drops our best player, drops a Prem striker to the bench in favour of Nuhiu. Good job I don't have a season ticket

@Victoria1867 Jesus Christ Gaz, you having a laugh mate?

@MackGray4 It's the type of team selection that might confuse Reading.

@robbiebebbie Just when you think he couldn't pick a worse team.

@johnada75157425 Monk throwing everything against the wall and hope something will stick.

@JackPoskett Clearly not got a clue about the formation or team that works, we’ve barely picked up any points against the relegation threatened teams, and the bench looks better than the starting 11. Monk will be in trouble if we don’t win here.

@GeoffSWFC On the bright side, Forestieri will be playing a much more advanced role today presumably

@StevieClay Had to make changes after the last couple of absolute shockers, let’s see if it works this time

@adamtmilner Is that team real? Is it banter? I have backed Monk but that team selection today says he wants the sack. Absolutely terrible

@SimonDHarrison Looks like boom or bust to me. Worried about midfield. Still think we will win with that line up, 7-6 to the Owls.

@added_on_time We might win this game and dare I say we could win well, so at the risk of this backfiring, I'll give my personal opinion on that starting selection. To me it screams desperation from a man under pressure.
