It may only be three league games into the new Football League season but new Owls stopper Nicky Weaver is already showing he's more than up to the challenge.
The former Manchester City and Charlton Athletic stopper arrived at Hillsborough officially just a week before the start of the season as a replacement for Lee Grant.
And it's top marks for the Wednesdayite so far - conceding just the one goal in the four matches in all competitions so far this season.
His, and Wednesday's, form will have so-far silenced the early-season critics of his signature.
Most Owls fans were pleased to see Weaver return to Hillsborough to fill the gloves of the departing Lee Grant - who was always going to be a tough act to follow.
But there were still some highlighting their doubts over the experienced goalkeeper, maybe not having the reality check that we are in fact, a League One team with financial problems.
Weaver is a top signing at this level, and I believe he can still do it at Championship level too - let's hope he gets the chance to prove that with us by winning a new contract - and helping the Owls to promotion this season.
The proof is in the pudding and the fact that Weaver has conceded just one goal from his first four matches as the Owls' number one is proof enough.
It's still early days, and one could say he hasn't really been tested that much in the games he's played in, but you can only prove yourself against what's in front of you.
In fact, Weaver may well be disappointed that he's conceded any goals at all given Wednesday's rapid start to life in League One - the one shot that did beat him was a scorcher of an effort at Colchester United that even a Peter Schmeichel in his prime would have struggled with.
So it's thumbs up for Nicky so far, and hopefully this praise for him won't be a curse for tonight's League Cup clash at Scunthorpe United.
Keep it up, Nicky...
