'Please prove me wrong' - Sheffield Wednesday fans have their say on Darren Moore's first starting XI

New Sheffield Wednesday manager Darren Moore has made three changes to the Owls starting XI for tonight’s huge relegation six-pointer against South Yorkshire neighbours Rotherham United.

Wednesday, 3rd March 2021, 7:07 pm

Moore has brought in Adam Reach, Liam Shaw and Liam Palmer in place of Izzy Brown, Kadeem Harris and Osaze Uroghide, respectively, following Saturday’s dramatic 3-2 defeat at Luton Town.

Wednesday go into the game seven points from safety, albeit with two games in hand over fourth-from-bottom Birmingham City who drew 1-1 at fellow strugglers Huddersfield Town last night.

On Twitter, our Owls correspondent Joe Crann wrote: “Darren Moore’s first XI is out, and I reckon that’s Shaw and Hutchinson as a two man midfield with Bannan sat just behind the striker.”

But what do Wednesdayites make of Moore’s first team selection as manager?

Let’s take a look at what they’re saying, also on Twitter.

@bensaavage Shaw should be nowhere near that side. Simple.

@stebboswfc Brown should be in that side and Palmer should be nowhere near it.

@niallscallan Thought it would be something similar to Saturday. He’s only had two days with them. Let’s just get behind him. Needs everybody together instead of arguing with each other.

@NigelWi51585735 Brown should have started. Only player in second half on Saturday to come out of it with any credibility. Worked hard, composed on ball and good distribution.

@MattrpSwfc I'm not going to lie, but unless Dunkley still isn't fit I think this is a mistake. Also playing Reach over Brown is another mistake to me. I don't know what videos of last matches Moore has been watching, but this is going to be a painful night I think.

@davegswfc Got to give the new manager a chance, he's watched them in training and picked who he thinks will do a job. With who he's got to choose from all I can say is welcome to the hardest job in football pal!

@haddington Brown was arguably the best player on the pitch during the first half at Luton. Urhoghide has been quality in most games. Picking Palmer and Reach who both are generally awful is a worrying start. Borner for Dunks as well. A worrying back four that. Please prove me wrong.
