What Chelsea loan star Izzy Brown had to say on new Sheffield Wednesday manager Tony Pulis

Spirits are high at Middlewood Road ahead of the club's Championship encounter with Preston North End tomorrow afternoon, according to the ball-playing midfielder

Attacking midfielder Izzy Brown says Sheffield Wednesday's players have quickly bought into new manager Tony Pulis's methods.

Pulis has spent the last four days preparing the team for Saturday's trip to Preston North End. It will be the Welshman's first fixture in charge of the Owls since succeeding Garry Monk.

Speaking to the club's media team, Brown said: "It's always difficult when a new manager comes in to adapt to a new style of play. It has been great the last few days.

"All the boys have bought into what the gaffer has brought into the club and I think everyone is excited for the game at the weekend."

Pulis has freshened things up in training, according to Brown.

"It's different," admitted the Chelsea loanee. "It's a lot of tactics and trying to get the shape right behind the ball.

"I feel like there is a lot of positivity around the place and I'm sure we will reap the benefits of a new manager coming in and hopefully it's a new lease of life for the boys."

"I feel like there is a lot of positivity around the place and I'm sure we will reap the benefits of a new manager coming in and hopefully it's a new lease of life for the boys."

Wednesday's players have had no days off this week, with Pulis putting them through their paces at Middlewood Road.

Brown said: "Every day we have been working on something new.

"He seems like a good guy off the pitch. Everything is working well. Craig Gardner has also come in and he seems like he's also a very nice guy. Everything is perfect and we are just ready to go on Saturday."

A niggly knee injury kept Brown out of action between September and October.

But the talented 23-year-old made his return to action before the last international break, appearing as a substitute three matches in a row.

Brown said: "I feel like I am getting back to 100 per cent. I can't wait to get back out on the pitch. I have to wait my time and whenever the gaffer needs me and thinks I am ready to play hopefully I will be there ready."

How Tony Pulis sought advice from former Sheffield Wednesday boss on how to turn Owls around

Tony Pulis used the four-hour drive from his south coast home to South Yorkshire wisely.

By Alex Miller

The newly-installed Sheffield Wednesday boss leafed through his vast contacts book and spent the time on the phone to a number of allies in football to find out what was right and indeed what was wrong at the club.

Announced on Friday, the former Stoke boss made the trip to Sheffield on Sunday before his unveiling the next day.

And as revealed on Alan Biggs’ Sheffield Live football show, former Owls boss Brian Laws was one of those consulted on a number of matters, including how to get the goal-shy Owls firing in front of goal.

“I spoke to Tony at length while he was travelling up to Sheffield,” Laws said.

“He’s been in the game a long time and knows he has to use the tools available to him, getting as much information as possible and collating as much information as possible from all different sources.

“That’s to get a good feel for the club, for the players for what has been going on. He will get honest opinions from people he trusts. And then he formulates from that how he is going to progress with the club.

“We went through all the players, he’s asked questions of people within the football club, outside the football club, knowledgeable football managers who know and understand the actual squad.

“He’s done an awful lot of homework and he will have a formation in his mind and he will expect them to get on with it."

Laws said that the pair also discussed the differences that the coronavirus crisis have posed to football, a novelty to Pulis given he has been out of the game for 18 months, and the 62-year-old’s burning desire to fight off the nay-sayers.

Laws said: “He’s a serial winner. He understands what is required, particularly in the Championship and he loves the fact he can prove people wrong.

“There are a lot of people who are out there that think that he’s finished and that he’s a bit old school. He’ll be delighted to prove those people wrong.”

Jordon Rhodes interview



JR on Westwood

Keiren has done really well in training, as have Joe and Cammy, there are three top keepers to choose from.



JR on a fresh start

On a personal note, it does. It’s a new set of eyes, new people to impress. The hard work has started and we’ll keep going

JR reaction to Pulis appointment

It was one of excitement, I’ve been looking forward to it and it’s been about getting myself in the best possible condition.

His message has been about hard work and endeavour. The manager is a winner and he wants winners in the team. That’s his ethos.

Going forward it’s over to us to continue the hard work and do as well as we can in each and every game.



JR on interest in the transfer window

No, you tell me. There was nothing from my part.


JR on Preston

Everybody is well aware of their record, it’s well-documented. We’re hopefully going to go there and play as well as we can do, hopefully they’ll catch Preston on an off-day, it’s not been kind to Wednesday in previous years.



JR on injuries and staying in the team

It’s happening all over the country. That’s going to happen with the fixtures and games all mounting up. Its bringing pressures to us all in these troubling times,

The only way is by doing the business and scoring goals and playing in a team that’s winning I know that’s the long game. The short term is to get in the team, score goals  and be a valued team member.



JR on Gardner

Very approachable. I’ll pick his brains on one or two things moving forward.



JR on Monk and no game time

Very frustrating. As  a footballer you want to play 90 minutes week in week out. Not being able to do that was very frustrating. 

Footballers are desperate to play every minute.  Now there’s a new a manager there’s possibility for everyone. It’s got to be up to us to be ready.

It was very good. He was a nice man and was fair to me. I kept as fit as possible and was desperate to do well. It’s sad that people lose jobs in their industry.



JR on contract / future

I’m here and I’m contracted now. There’s a manager in a place that’s new and I want to be here. I’ve worked really hard to get here so far, I have a fond connection at Sheffield Wednesday as well.



JR on returning to form

If I didn’t think I could do that, I’d retire tomorrow. If I’m given the chance I can be that 20-goal striker again.

JR on Pulis talk

It’s only been a few days, he’s trying to get his message across. In terms of an individual basis, not a great deal.

The message is to work hard in training.



JR on his fitness

I’m in a pretty good place, I’ve been doing extra bits and I’m in a good position.

I want to be in to be in a good place with the new manager coming in.

Preston North End will head into this weekend's clash against Sheffield Wednesday somewhat in the unknown.

The Owls appointed experienced head Tony Pulis as their new manager last week after Wednesday parted ways with Garry Monk.

Pulis' first game in charge will of course come at Deepdale on Saturday.

PNE will be looking to register their first home win of the season in the league, against a side that will be keen to make a good early impression on their new coach.

North End boss Alex Neil is as thorough and meticulous as they come with regards to his preparation, but the Scot admitted in his pre-match press conference that he really isn't sure what to expect.

"It's a difficult one, they've obviously had quite a bit of turnover in terms of last year with their players," he said.

"Then they've allowed Garry to bring quite a few in, he signed quite a lot of bodies in the summer.

"They started with a points deficit which then got reduced and now obviously they've chose to change their manager.


"I think what it does for us is make things really clear in the fact that we just need to focus on how we play, because I've got absolutely no idea how Tony is going to set his team up.


"They've been playing a back three which he could stick with as he's played that before when he was at Middlesbrough, or he could go back to a back four, play one up front, two up front, three up front.

"I don't think we will have any idea until the game is actually being played as to how 'Tony's Sheffield Wednesday' will look.

"Obviously we'd studied Garry's team and new exactly how they played, but I've really no idea how Tony will go about it.

"There's no point in second guessing, we will solely be focusing on ourselves."

Neil, 39, and Monk, 41, are still both young managers in the game.

While the PNE boss is now in his fourth season at Deepdale, Monk has found it difficult to stay at a Championship club for any real length of time.

On his sacking, Neil said: "I don't like commenting on it because I think it would be unfair on Sheffield Wednesday - as I don't know the dynamics - and it's unfair I think on Tony as well with him taking the role.

"But I think the one thing every manager can, and will say, is the fact you don't like seeing people getting sacked.

"I know Garry worked really hard, is a professional guy and I'm sure he'll be disappointed - unfortunately that's the way football at this level is."

Browne, Johnson, Fisher - PNE's team news & injury list for Sheffield Wednesday test

Preston North End manager Alex Neil provided the latest update on how his squad is looking ahead of this weekend's match against Tony Pulis' Sheffield Wednesday

Preston North End haven't had the best of luck this season with injuries but manager Alex Neil could welcome some bodies back this weekend.

The Lilywhites face Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday at Deepdale as PNE provide the first test for Owls' new boss Tony Pulis.

Before the international break, Neil had lost Patrick Bauer and Andrew Hughes to injury in addition to the knocks picked up by Ben Pearson and Ben Davies.

Bauer had a knee problem, Hughes injured his hamstring while Pearson (groin) and Davies (ankle) hadn't featured for a month.

The former's injury was said to be less of a problem than left-back Hughes', but Neil wasn't sure if the German would be ready for this weekend.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, the Scot discussed how his squad is looking.

“We are making some progress and getting into better shape now," he said.

"We are potentially getting a couple back and so we will see how they go - we're going to need everybody available.

"Patrick will potentially be in contention, we just need to see how he goes today and tomorrow and make a decision then."

The last thing Neil needed was more players becoming unavailable but that could well be the case, with midfielder Alan Browne testing positive for Covid while away with the Republic of Ireland.

At a time when the intensity of the fixture schedule is taking its toll on squads, that was a hammer blow for the PNE boss.

On a brighter note Daniel Johnson scored a stunning goal while away with Jamaica for the first time, but after a long flight back from Saudi Arabia he will have to be assessed.

"Alan is ok, it’s extremely frustrating," said Neil. "I can understand domestic teams being reluctant to let their players go on international duty at the moment because it’s the clubs that then get punished for something that is out of their control.

"It's a few times now that the Ireland camp has returned some positive tests - he's still isolating and hasn't trained, I need to get medical advice but we don't have a date to share yet.

It’s positive for DJ because it’s nice for him to go out there, get some games, get his goal and the recognition he deserves.

"But from our point of view it would have been nice for him to get some rest but that’s what happens when you have international players.”

In North End's last outing, Darnell Fisher went off injured in a real spot of bother at his former club Rotherham.

Thankfully though, the right-back is good to go for this weekend with the injury not as bad as first feared.

"I thought I'd cracked my ribs," said the defender. "He landed on his elbow right on my ribs.

"I couldn't shout or breathe - the pain was crazy and I couldn't take a throw-in.




"It's settled down and is just badly bruised and is better now. I couldn't really run or protect myself.

"If someone was to hit me I had no power so I was worried, but thankfully it's not serious."

Agree with those line ups, but how glaringly obvious is it that we're missing a Fletch or Chris Martin type!

IMO Paterson is a no 10, sitting in that pocket between midfield and striker.

Didn't TP say that Palmer & Paterson won't get back until the early hours, so won't be in contention.
