Why Sheffield Wednesday boss Garry Monk is looking at the 'bigger picture' and 'not just one January window'


Loan star believes Wednesday can mount a push for promotion

Connor Wickham, on loan from Crystal Palace, says Wednesday can mount a push for the play offs.

Connor Wickham says there is no reason why Sheffield Wednesday cannot finish in the top six this season despite their poor league form.


Monk has his say on permanent deals for loan stars

Wickham on why he has returned to S6

Sheffield Wednesday's loan striker Connor Wickham has been speaking about why he's returned to S6.

Connor Wickham has been speaking to the media about his return to Hillsborough for a third spell on loan.


EFL to discuss transfer window changes

Following the decision of the Premier League to revert back to the traditional end to the summer transfer window at the end of August, the EFL have confirmed clubs will discuss doing the same with the Championship later this month.

Last summer saw both the Premier League and Championship agree to close the transfer window on the Thursday prior to the start of the top flight campaign.

With European leagues opting to remain with a deadline day at the end of August, the Premier League yesterday reversed the decision so as to not be disadvantaged by the early end to the window.

And now the EFL clubs will now discuss the possibility of doing the same with the Championship when they meet later this month.

“It is a very difficult game for us, but Sheffield (Wednesday) is a good team, but not a magic team.”

Monk opens up on 'mistakes'

Sheffield Wednesday manager Garry Monk.

Things have not gone Sheffield Wednesday's way on the pitch since Christmas.

heir promotion push is now hanging by a thread after a run of just one victory from their last seven Championship matches.

Some critics have questioned manager Garry Monk's decision-making following the downturn in the team's results. His team selection and tactics have come under fire in some quarters because Wednesday have dropped from third to 11th in the space of six weeks.

Monk has taken his fair share of responsibility for their poor run of form.

"We (managers) always make mistakes - no one is perfect," he said.


Hopefully this is the beginning of a sea change at Wednesday

Monk's demand on his Wednesday players - time to turn that corner

Garry Monk says his Sheffield Wednesday players have to use tomorrow's trip to Barnsley as the ideal time to drag themselves out of their poor run of results and get their play-off campaign back on track. "Hopefully the new players have given impetus to the squad, I can see this week competition is up," he said.
