Obviously there is another side to the story, as in the deals would be less than they were on now, that I have no doubt.

But.....

I bet they're far from skint and could manage a reduction!

I think what pisses me off Tee, is that the players at S6 have been paid bloody well, especially the likes of FF, Fletcher but when the time comes & the club need something back, off they go, during this period of great uncertainty, DC & the club have made sure that the players have continued to be paid their full wages, whereas many folk up & down the Country have struggled massively, the lot of em can fuck off for me I want players at S6 who want to wear our shirt, not come in for a decent wage packet & not give a toss when we as a club want something back.

Nando pissed me off no end, coming back to training so far behind in terms of fitness, shows a total lack of disrespect towards the club & the fans, especially when we stuck by him when he had his paddy.

Nice to know some players have loyalty eh,

If only we had a squad of Kieran Lee's we would be in a far better place.

It would be a month extension I guess. They would actually be paid for July anyway if they don't have a new club

It is their choice - no player is essential in reality. All 3 have had their moments but also plenty of time they haven't.

Time for a broom  

Happy clapping for 4 years more than Emre

Whilst we've know we wouldn't see Sam Hutchinson in our shirt again, it is a little disappointing we can't give him a send off.

Yes, he's had his injury problems. Yes, he overcommitted in the tackle many times.
But I loved his endeavour and ability. At times he was an absolute animal and the opposition must have hated him.

Whatever has happened behind the scenes with the manager and previous managers would suggest there's no smoke without fire to rumours. But, on the field I'll always remember his absolute passion and seeming love of the game whenever he played.

HoylandOwl, 24/06/2020 at 16:56


It's a job - when I left I got 50 quid in vouchers then had to buy folk a drink so was down on the deal.

Its faux emotion from both players and fans in reality.

So bye Sam that is the limit of my farewell 

Happy clapping for 4 years more than Emre

Disappointed about Fox an Fletch. Going to be a long hard struggle now. Some of the others still dicussing with OMG, hope they are cheap. 

I'll never buy from AXA again!

I've no doubt. Hutch, Lee, Atdhe and Fletch gave their all, sometimes it wasn't good enough, sometimes they weren't fit and sometimes they were being asked to do a role which wasn't the best use of their abilities.

As for FF, Fox, Winnall and Westwood they have been up and down, all at times hitting the maximum they could and other times not showing the effort or commitment we might expect and not being prepared to be a sub is not acceptable in any way shape or form which at least two of those have been accused of. On balance it was time for them to go and probably even more so if GM is to be retained next season because he obviously struggles to get out of these, maybe with the exception of Fox.

If Wickham doesn't re sign my prediction of 5 points to the end of the season may need revising downwards.

Biggest rebuild in Wednesday history. Assuming we don’t get embargoed. That almost certainly means a relegation scrap at best if we can’t recruit.

Question is, do you trust the owner and manager to get this one right?

KM I am very pessimistic about GMs credentials for the re build. He was given that opportunity at Borough and look where they are now. A colleague of mine is a Boro fan (doesn't like Gibson btw, says he's too much of an attention seeker), but doesn't have much good to say about GMs dealing in the transfer market. Hope that helpsCry

Bigger than the 1974 / 5, 75/76 era?
And 2003 / must have been pretty big. 

We must not give opposition teams hope. We have to kill them.

Disappointed at Fox leaving. After all his troubles, he seemed to turn it around and was performing consistently well (relatively speaking). But considering the abuse he was getting, I’m not surprised he’s taking the opportunity to go elsewhere.

FF, meh.

Fletcher. Mixed feelings. Offers something no other at the club does, including a few goals. But injury prone (is his latest injury season ending anyway?) and expensive.

Hutchinson. Always exciting to watch, but I’m in the “no smoke without fire” group. More trouble than he’s worth.

Winnall. Pointless signing at the time. I doubt that he would be used much in the next month, so no great loss.

We’re looking a bit light up front, especially if we’re going for a front two, but we could always try Harris down the middle.

Owling_Wolf, 24/06/2020 at 18:11


I reckon so. We’ve got 17 senior pros including the likes of Penney and Urzoghide, and Westwood who won’t wear the shirt again. We have only one striker on our books. I’m not including Lee and Nuhiu in next seasons update. I’m also assuming none of the current loanees signing too.

For me, that means we need to sign, what, 7-10 players? At least 3 strikers. And coverage all over midfield (only widemen are Reach and Harris).

So, are Monk and Chansiri was the right people to lead that?

The Star are suggesting there will be NO contract news today, the next chance they'll get to speak to the club is tomorrow.

Clearly Fletcher and FF feel they can get better deals elsewhere, thanks for your contributions, we move on. Fox I'm surprised about, maybe he wants to move nearer home, that said his stock's probably never been higher.

Monks record as a manager has been dreadful, no matter where he’s gone. I’ve said it before, he starts well and then it goes horribly wrong. The same thing happened with us this season, and for me, COVID bought him a stay of execution because we weren’t getting close to a result under him. I genuinely felt we’d not win another game this season.

This.
I was delighted when we signed Forestieri, his first season was everything I hoped we'd get from him. Skillful, instinctive, pure quality and the player to get folks off their seats like we'd missed for so long.

However, after his impetuous attitude, contract strop and the whole pushbike to training 'quip' just tainted his image from then on and hes never really been the same.

Yes, there's been flashes of brilliance, that goal at Norwich for example is one of the best goals we've scored in ages. Its genius. And its those bits that we just hope would happen with as much regularity as the skill, creativity and goals in 15/16 did.

This covid outbreak COULD be seen as something we can profit from in a perverse way.
Big earners out, level the wage structure somewhat, get in players who WANT to play for us, not for the daft wage. There'll be plenty out there not able to get the wages they were used to.

We all get sentimental about players and largely, I'll be positive when it comes to Nando. But he'll also be part of the 'almost' group who had the chance to become legends but ultimately fell at the last.

The Owls can confirm that Paul Jones, Kieran Lee and Atdhe Nuhiu have signed short term contract extensions to the end of the current campaign.

The 2019/20 season was suspended in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic and authorisation was granted for clubs to extend the contracts of players due to expire on 30 June.

Wednesday’s final scheduled game is against Middlesbrough on Wednesday 22 July.

Offers were made to Steven Fletcher, Fernando Forestieri and Morgan Fox, which were declined.

Sam Hutchinson and Sam Winnall will be released from the club upon the expiry of their contracts on 30 June.

Talks remain ongoing regarding loan extensions for Alessio Da Cruz, Jacob Murphy, Connor Wickham and Josh Windass.

David Bates will return to his parent club Hamburg at the end of June.

Sheffield Wednesday would like to thank all the departing players for their services and wish them well for the future.

In simple terms, ‘Fuck’em, move on! Decent players on their day, not quite as good as they seemed to believe though, alleged high wages which, in my personal view, they didn’t fully warrant!
