“The reality hits home…” – Sheffield Wednesday fans react to 2021/22 fixture reveal
Sheffield Wednesday fans are finding the 2021/22 League One fixture list to be a bit of a reality check, while others are looking for a bit of humour in it all.
The Owls will get their campaign in the third tier underway away at Charlton Athletic on August 7th as Darren Moore looks to get off to a winning start in his first full season at the club, and they’ll then welcome his former club, Doncaster Rovers, to Hillsborough on August 14th in what is expected to be the first game at S6 with supporters in 18 months.
Here’s what some fans thought:
@Foxy1405: Doncaster at home second game is interesting
@oyamnomis: Donny first home game..be ace when we’re asking Moore to play cos no players at club!!!!!
@ChrisAsh1975: That's a tough opening month... 2 SY derbies
@No_Gimicks: The reality hits home…
@JamesK__1: One positive with our reduced squad size is we can travel down in a Twingo.
@Casual83: Agghh we play everyone twice, once home and once away!!
@IanSWFC80: All going to be tough with no players!
@morts3108: The most underwhelming fixture release day of all time...
@dan_N_smith: Those fixtures are a sharp reality check. Nothing less than we deserve but it's a poor league and our squad will look average in it.
@YICETOR: Tough first month for #swfc. Feels like a giant step into the unknown.
@JAC1867: Day out in big smoke for first game back after a year and half away. Sure it’ll be a sensible one.
@Mitch_Parker: Obviously best away game of season would be on a Tuesday night
