The Owls were downed by Sunderland on Friday night in a 3-0 victory that could no doubt have been worse if the visitors hadn’t taken their foot off the gas in the second half, and Saturday’s results meant that there is no team in the division with fewer points, fewer goals scored, or a worse goal difference. Xisco’s side are in trouble.

And that’s just the issues on the pitch... Off it there is growing turmoil at S6 after Dejphon Chansiri said that he wouldn’t be putting any additional money into the club, with talk of protests and anger dominating the message boards and social media more so than the actual football itself. Our Owls writers, Alex Miller and Joe Crann, spoke about it in the video above.
