It's not too often you'll hear me crying out for a game against Coventry City, but the international break has left me, strangely, wanting more of Wednesday...
Those who were at Pride Park at the weekend will probably be glad for a break from any possible disappointment where the blue and wizards are concerned following the 3-0 defeat against Derby - and paying £30 for the privilege.]
But I can't wait for the chance to 'put things right' against the Sky Blues a week on Saturday, and Brian Laws probably can't, either.
It's not just that, even if we'd have won, I'd have probably found myself pondering what to do this weekend, given the lack of domestic games.
Don't get me wrong, I'll support England whenever they're on television, and I'll more often than not watch the game, whether it's a qualifying game, friendly, or tournament match.
I just can't help thinking that I'd rather be directing my support at the Owls rather than at England.
I'm not going to get into the club against country debate, who do I support more etc. - I've been to Wembley a number of times to watch England and travelled to Berlin last year to watch us beat Germany 2-1.
I just don't get that same feeling as I do watching Wednesday, and it makes me want to support the Owls even more when I watch England - I've no idea why.
Back on track, the current situation which will see Saturday's England game screened only on the internet makes things even worse.
I really don't want to sit in front of my computer watching the match in what will be, no doubt, less than high quality streaming, especially given the amount of users likely to be watching the game.
The game should be on free-to-view television, that's my belief, and for it to not even be on our television screens full stop is a disgrace.
It's out of the FA's hands, we know that, but hopefully it will be a one off.
I'm not even sure if there will be a highlights package for us to watch, unless watching on the internet of course, so that means I'll be pretty much football free this weekend!
I've rattled my brain as to whether I'd prefer there was no football at all, or if I'd rather be watching Wednesday, regardless of if we're losing or not.
I think it's the latter - I just won't know what to do with myself come Saturday afternoon, it'll be like the pre-season all over again, just without any trips to Meadowhall to ponder.
Maybe I'll catch the Germans on ESPN instead...
Bring on Coventry!
