Have your say

SHOULD he stay or should he go now?

For me, a lifelong Wednesdayite, it’s a no brainer: Dave Jones should be given more time to steer the Owls to safety.

Ok; results haven’t been great. And, yes, Jones has brought in a lot of players who don’t figure in the first team at the moment. Some of his selection decisions do leave fans scratching their heads. But just who could Wednesday appoint who will be any better?

As a season ticket holder for 40 years I’ve seen too many managers come and go before they were granted a chance to alter things. We’ve had some good managers, some bad and some I can barely recall: like Alan Irvine, for instance.

Few are around long enough to make a difference. And if Jones goes, who is available to bring the improvement fans crave? It simply ain’t going to happen...
