Very sad news
Football fans are set to start returning to stadiums next month according to reports, although Sheffield Wednesday fans probably don’t have any cause for excitement yet.
Not many left now...
He may not play for Wednesday again...
Wayne Rooney, the now player-coach and captain of Derby County, has spoken for the first time about Sheffield Wednesday loanee, Jack Marriott.
What a player
A former Owl has retired...
Alex Bruce, 36, has retired from football. He played his part in Sheffield Wednesday’s promotion to the Championship in 2005.
Swansea’s boss on SWFC
Steve Cooper to the media today: "We managed to beat Rotherham on the weekend but it was a hard-fought game. Tony is a really experienced manager and I have a lot of respect for him. All we’ve got to do is bear that in mind, respect the opposition but focus on ourselves and what we think is needed to win the game.
“It’s a really experienced team as well. It’s going to be a tough game but one we’ll look forward to.”
On Pulis, he went on to say, “I've not crossed paths with him. I know him and I've had some conversations with him over the last 12 months. He’s a good guy. I certainly respect people who have got longevity. We’ll look forward to welcoming him to the Liberty while trying to win the game.”
