Owls Need Jet-Heeled JJ

Wednesday's latest disappointments in the Championship have left us screaming out for one thing in particular - Jermaine Johnson.

Of course, a couple of million here, a couple of high-quality loan players there, would do nicely in our battle against relegation.

Back in the real world though, and we can't look to any kind of luxuries to get us out of our current situation.

The luxury we're crying out for at the minute is our jet-heeled Jamaican Jermaine Johnson - his return from injury can't come soon enough.

They say you don't know what you're missing until it's gone, or something along those lines anyway, and that's ever-so true in the case of JJ.

Without him, Wednesday have looked lacklustre, and without any pace or punch in their attack.

We all know he's capable of being hugely frustrating, firing efforts way over the bar from point-blank range, running into danger like a 'headless chickin' on others.

What we'd give for a bit of that last Saturday or against Doncaster Rovers.

His presence could have made that bit of difference that got us something from one, or both, or our previous matches.

He was immense against Barnsley, running himself to the ground and putting in a man-of-the-match performance that helped Alan Irvine get off to a winning start as manager.

Such a shame that his hamstring injury came in the game immediately following that.

Johnson was played as part of a 4-3-3 line-up against the Tykes, imagine what he could do in a 4-4-2 formation with some extra energy to spare.

His pace no doubt scares the living daylights out of defenders, no matter what he does with the ball.


His comeback can't come soon enough and Irvine will be keeping everything crossed that the Owls medical staff do theur best to work a miracle and see him back in contention sooner rather than later.

we need some kind of a different adjective or metaphor to describe Jermaine Johnson because literally every single article, be it on here or on the official site describes him as jet-heeled...
