Goals from here, there and everywhere

Goals from here, there and everywhere

We're not ones to pass up a good stat here at Vital Wednesday and we think the fact that 12 different Wednesday players have got on the scoresheet in 12 league games so far is worth a mention.

Striker Gary Madine may be getting all the plaudits with his ten-goal haul so far this term but Wednesday are finding goals from all across the pitch in npower League One - quite a useful asset.

After twelve games of the Owls' league campaign, 12 different players have already found the back of the net. Wednesday have, of course, romped up to second in the table and have won all six of their home matches thus far - scoring goals aplenty in the process. Boring Gary Megson eh?

As well as top scorer Madine, Rob Jones, David Prutton, Chris Sedgwick, Julian Bennett, Clinton Morrison, Ben Marshall, Liam Palmer, David McGoldrick, James O'Connor, Reda Johnson and Lewis Buxton have all netted in the league.

Morrison is, of course, on-loan at MK Dons at the moment but he still found the back of the net for Wednesday in the 1-1 draw at Charlton Athletic before moving on.

The fact that three of Wednesday's preferred back four - Bennett, Jones and Buxton - have already found the onion bag goes a long way to showing Wednesday's big threat from set-pieces.

But Megson's men can mix it up, with Marshall scoring a couple of fine solo efforts, Madine being the league's current top scorer, and heck, even James O'Connor - no offence James - getting in on the act.

One thing many Owls fans may have been concerned about under the leadership of Megson was perhaps a lack of goals, taking a 1-0 lead and sitting back on it, but a lot of games, especially at home, have been far from that. Away is a different story, but at least things seem to be turning around for the better there, too.

It's a great stat for Wednesdayites, and Megson, to have at this stage of the season, and with Chris O'Grady back in action and Ryan Lowe not far off a return, you can bet there will be moire names added to that list sooner rather than later.

Maybe Danny Batth, Chris Lines, Jose Semedo or Jermaine Johnson can add their name to that list in some fashion this weekend...

Countdown to PIGfest #1 and I sense there are some Owls out there getting anxious about it. Well relax folks and leave the worrying to them. GRUNTED, they started well enough and even managed to HOG the early season limelight, but they're hardly DRIPPING with confidence now. PORKwality(!)? It's there for all to see and their recent form'SNOUT to write HAM about either. I'd say they're primed and ready for the CHOP. We can go there this time and win in STYle. That'd leave them eight points behind us but with a GAMMON hand but seriously folks, promotion? Those poor deluded fools are BACON up the wrong tree. After Sunday they'll be looking over their SHOULDERS and SCRATCHINGS nervously at their chinny-chin-chins and wondering where their next point will come from. So come on you Owls, get behind the lads and watch them convert those SWINE into SAUSAGES!

Megson Out has been surprisingly quiet recently any reason?

the reason being is his agenda has been well and truly shat on by the current form and confidence being shown on the pitch resulting in positive results, I bet he's gutted!!! no doubt he'll be back with his anti-megson crap after the next defeat.

.....I've got more balls than that. Megson has gone on to echo every single criticism I've made... We need to pass better (a lot better)... Keep posession... stop relying on set pieces. We're unbeaten at home but I've yet to see us play anyone off the park and 3-1 flattered us again on Saturday. Before I join the Megson herd I'll need some convincing performances to match the scores. Sunday being the one exception...WTID
