Not such a Gray day for Stuart

Not such a Gray day for Stuart

Stuart Gray had a day to remember on Saturday - helping Wednesday through to the Fifth Round of the FA Cup and being handed the role of Owls boss on a permanent basis.

The news had been a long time in coming for Gray, who succeeded Dave Jones at the Hillsborough helm on a temporary basis at the start of December and helped turn around the fortunes of the team to lift them out of the Championship relegation zone.

The news was confirmed on Saturday, as he saw his troops see off Rochdale 2-1 at Spotland in the cup, and the former Southampton and Northampton Town boss was delighted to accept the offer.

"I am delighted to get the job on a permanent basis,' he told the official SWFC website.

"This is a football club with a rich heritage and history and I am very proud to become head coach.

"While this is a fantastic honour for me on a personal note, I have to credit the players because they have given everything to get the recent results we have enjoyed.'

Gray has suffered just two defeats in 12 matches since taking charge, with victories over high-flying Leicester City and Yorkshire rivals Leeds United, a 6-0 thrashing in front of the Sky television cameras, being the highlights.

Well done to Stu & Bully first of all. Can you just imagine all that squealin' we'd have to endure if Colin had shuffled in and achieved those kinda results over his first twelve games? (Ugh! shivers at the thought). Anyway, for once I'm happy with how things stand at the minute: Stu handed the 'new' position as coach fully in charge of team affairs and let's hope Bully's new role is also confirmed toot-sweet. The best thing about this latest 'Director Of Football' talk is that MM finally seems to have realized that after two and a half years of sticking his oar in Grima (PA) is clearly no good at it. That's two and a half years of bringing in players the manager didn't fancy all that much (the list seems endless for both Megson & Jones). Of course, MM might well draft in a complete Wally who in turn goes on to undermine Stu's authority but until that happens things are beginning to look up at long last and long may it all continue. Up those bloomin' Owls!
