Owls' club captain Lee Bullen saw his career in the famous blue and white come to an end after the 4-1 victory over Norwich at the weekend - we have your thanks to him.
Former Manchester United and Coventry City man Dion Dublin got a first class reception when he came off the pitch to retire from the professional game in the final game of the Championship season at Hillsborough on Sunday.
And Bully would have been gutted that he couldn't be on the pitch to play in front of a sell-out crowd before he departs for pastures new.
Never fear! We know Bully often checks Wednesday websites far and wide, so we compiled a list of just some of the thanks from Vital Sheffield Wednesday members to give him the send off he deserves.
welshyowl: Hear hear, been an idol for Wednesday fans since he came over, and although he's past his best now it shows just the kind of man that he actually is.
Thatcham Owl: I hope he gets a good send off.Good luck for the future Bully once an Owl always an Owl.
mightyowl28: We need to make sure this man gets the send off he deserves, even if it is only after the game on Sunday, I think I can say that in the 7/8 years I've been religiously following Wednesday (couldn't afford to before then) Lee Bullen would be my favourite player, if only for the commitment he shows whilst playing in any position on the pitch. I'm still bitter the Kevin Pressman never got the send off he deserved.
I especially remember the volley he scored at the Kop end, I'm struggling to remember the opposition, when his official supporters club had come down from Scotland just to see him play..
I salute you...
hellboy0628: I think that a player like Lee Bullen comes along only once in a while, he has so many qualities that make him a true professional and someone I'm proud to have associated with Sheffield Wednesday. He has been a true leader through some dark times at Hillsborough and I don't think his contributions will be easily forgotten as he is now the yard stick by which other captains will be measured. I hope to see Lee Bullen back at Wednesday again one day. God bless Lee Bullen!
keeper442: Being based in the states I do not have the luxury of attending matches with the frequency I would like but I did have the opportunity to see part of the pre-season tour last season, and had the chance to lift a pint with members of the playing squad and coaching staff. Bully was so engaging to speak with, a true pleasure. He took the time to show a genuine interest in the supporters, and for that he will always be thought of very highly. Thank you Lee. You are truly one of the players that hold a special place in my history of SWFC.
Beswetherick: Name another post-war player in world professional football to have played all eleven positions? And name another post 1999 player that's worn our shirt with more passion and pride. Legend. I'd like to see him be our new Football in the Community officer on a big fat wage and a non-executive director too.
Barton6435: A true Wednesday legend hope he comes back one day in a coaching role think his passion and commitment might rub off on some of the younger players.
beverley owl: Great servant to the club and a true professional cheers Lee all the best for the future where ever that might be.
Bigash: A true professional, played with his heart on his sleeve and even when he was getting stick, he never gave up.
McQuaid-Owls: Top man, playing in all 11 positions for us. And nobody will ever forget him lifting the trophy in Cardiff.
Owlsmad: Good luck Bully, hope to see ya back at the club soon! A true gent and Wednesdayite thru and thru...
homerj23: One of the best Wednesday players at this club for many seasons and not for his skills sometimes but just for his passion and love for the club. He would do anything for Wednesday and deserves the recognition of all the fans on Sunday, treat him like a brother. Good luck Bully!!
will it ever happen: Well I personally thanked him for his services by shaking the mans hand as I walked through the ground this afternoon. Saw him getting out of his Audi and walk over the bridge, so decide to thank him for everything, even the mistakes and wished him good luck for the future. True gentleman, even shook my sons hand who is only 4 years of age. Cheers Mr Bullen.
