Owls Look At 'High Profile' Boss

Owls Look At 'High Profile' Boss

Owls chairman Dave Allen has revealed the club will begin talks with a 'high profile manager' next week as he looks to reduce the shortlist to three after the Crystal Palace match.

Wednesday have been looking for a replacement for Paul Sturrock since his sacking a week ago today, with the club set to finalise their list of candidates over the next week - and a boss could be in place for the Leicester City match a week on Saturday.

Allen told BBC Radio Sheffield: 'Next week we shall be seeing a high profile manager on the list. I'm hoping that by the middle of next week we shall have a shortlist of three.

'We have seen five individuals, two of which we're very interested in, and there's quite a number to go.' he continued.

Allen also commented on Brian Laws after the Scunthorpe manager came for an interview at Hillsborough yesterday afternoon - it looks like Laws will be one of three on the final shortlist.

He said: 'I like him. He comes from the Clough camp and I'm a great admirer of the Clough camp. He's had ten good years of what he's doing and progressed very well.'

Former West Brom and Middlesbrough boss Bryan Robson is one high profile manager to be linked with the club and could be the mystery man to be interviewed for the Owls hot-seat next week. The Manchester United legend has also helped Boro to promotion from Division One to the Premiership.

Former England, Watford and Aston Villa manager Graham Taylor is the other high-profile boss to be linked with a move to S6. Taylor has so far played down talks of a move to Wednesday - but hasn't ruled himself out of the running.

I don't think Graham Taylor would give up his cushdy co-commentating job to manage a championship side, especially given the s**t he had to endure at Villa. I think it's probably Mourhino

You know what Allens like. His idea of a high profile boss may well be Gary Megson, dont be fooled!

High profile, Ive heard nothing of the sort yet. So far Ive heard Megson (Dog S**t), Robson (W**k), Palmer (Stockport), Ritchie (Why), Shirtliff (Again why), Worthington (great haha), Sheridan (again why why why), Laws (huge name), Waddle (well proven) and to top it off Taylor (best ever England manager - not called turnip for no reason)
