'We’re going to get absolutely bossed here' - Sheffield Wednesday fans have their say on team to play Everton
Sheffield Wednesday caretaker boss Neil Thompson has handed a debut to new signing Andre Green for tonight’s FA Cup fourth round clash against Everton at Goodison Park.
The former Aston Villa winger has been thrown straight into the mix following his arrival at Hillsborough on a free transfer earlier in the transfer window.
Elsewhere, Julian Börner is back while there’s also a start for young defender Osaze Urhoghide – but there is no place in the matchday squad for Liam Shaw, who produced a stunning man of the match display in the 2-0 victory over Exeter City in the previous round.
Tonight’s game against Carlo Ancelotti’s Toffeemen is the Owls’s first since the third round win against the Grecians due to a Covid-19 outbreak which led to the postponement of league games against Coventry City and Wycombe Wanderers.
So how have Wednesdayites reacted to Thompson’s team selection against the Premier League high-flyers?
Let’s take a look at what they’re saying on Twitter.
@owlsmadmorris Fearing the worst defensively, hope to be proven wrong
@saint_sam90 What's Matt Penney got to do to get a start?
@JamesKay89 So Hutchinson is basically a replacement for Liam Shaw
@Dobson_dobsinho Trying to be optimistic about that line up but can see us being done by five or six here
@clurrrrxhx No Shaw a noticeable miss but what a start for Brennan, Gavin and Urhoghide, go out there and enjoy it lads. Come on Wednesday
@MattHall1974 Got to fear the worst for a very youthful back line for #swfc against a front three of Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin and Rodriguez
@BigAl_simon Just seen the Everton lineup, this could get very ugly
@antonio_nespoli We’re going to get absolutely bossed here
@haddington All that talk in the build up and we pick a team like that. We could get hammered looking at Everton’s line up.
@Dadders Four of the back five for #swfc tonight come out of the academy, with another four on the bench. Clear where the priorities lie.
