Back To The Norm After Swapping Club For Country

Following England's defeat to Germany yesterday, Wednesday fans can now focus on the new season.

England were woeful, clueless and a disgrace to the country they represented, but now we can at least focus our attentions back on what really matters; Sheffield Wednesday.

Surely Alan Irvine will bring in some new faces next week to add to the captures of Daniel Jones, Jon Otsemobor, Paul Heffernan and and Chris Sedgwick.

The Owls require at least one more striker and although a target man would be the ideal acquisition, they don't grow on trees.

The Owls currently only have Marcus Tudgay and Heffernan as recognised frontmen, but Jermaine Johnson is expected to be used up front next term.

With no money to spend on transfer fees, Irvine is having to scrap for free agents alongside other managers. Although most Owls are happy with the first batch of recruits, you would think that the next four signings that Irvine makes will be less sought after players.

The rumour mill works overtime in June and July, but there could well be a cluster of signings this week and then Wednesday fans can get back to their bread and butter, away from the misery of supporting England.

England were one of the poorest sides in the tournament, surely now the F.A need to look at the Foreign players in the premership. Any England manager must only have less than 60%to pick from .

totally agree. the starting 11 in each game were not good enough and then there was absolutely nothing on the bench you really wanted to see running on when we needed a goal. The problem is players like Lampard, Gerrard etc are not actually as good as they appear because they are surrounded by better players at club level, and as anyone who has played at any level knows its much easier playing in teams with better players

Hirsty I disagree with the gerrard comment, he looked like the only player who was world class. Quick precise passing and a goal threat. Everyone else was average, Barry couldn't keep possession, Rooney got stagefright (again), and there was no quality on the wings. We need to lose the league cup, english players are playing too many games in a season so by the time the world cup comes round everyone is knackered!

Don't buy the tired B.S Norman and losing the league cup would change nothing- none of the top players even play in the thing anyway. Also i would say man for man only Lahm and Podolski would be in a combined side yet we were battered its not a question of how good they are which makes it harder to take everytime. Personally(never thought i'd say this) i'm done supporting this ''golden generaton' side when they're replaced with players who show the same amount of passion the fans have i'll be back. In the meantime UTO and lets win a league title

gerrard might have been one of our better performers but he was way short of being called world class. take for example the start of the 2nd half when he produced three shots from outside the box that were simply desperate at a time when we were still in the game. nevermind gerard we had no goal threat fullstop!
