We asked Vital Sheffield Wednesday users what the best central midfield partnership was for the Owls - and the results are in!
Wednesday boss Brian Laws has continued to tinker with his middle two since his arrival at the club - seemingly undecided on whether to use Glenn Whelan, Yoann Folly or Kenny Lunt in the middle of the park since his arrival.
And the majority of users have voted for a centre midfield partnership of Glenn Whelan and Yoann Folly for the remainder of the season, with 56 per cent voting this way.
Whelan's inconsistent form of the previous campaign had led to former boss Paul Sturrock transfer-listing the Republic of Ireland under-21 international at the start of the campaign.
But the decision seems to have had a superb effect on the former Manchester City product - arguably being the most consistent player for the club so far this season. His form led him to collect the Owls' player-of-the-month award for August, December and January.
Frenchman Yoann Folly returned to the side for the clash with Burnley following an injury to Whelan, and more than impressed in the middle of the park - outshining the lacklustre Lunt in the middle of the park.
And his performance seems to have had a good effect among Owls fans, with the majority voting for him to play alongside Whelan in the midfield.
But what of Kenny Lunt and Whelan - a partnership which Brian Laws seems to have favoured in recent weeks?
There's no doubt the former Crewe man began to impress for Wednesday when Laws took over - and he was part of the reason the Owls moved to within four points of the play-off spots at one point.
Strangely, Paul Sturrock refused to play him as a regular at the start of the campaign, but argued that he was the best player at the club because he forced others to do so well in training to keep their place.
But Lunt undoubtedly shone as Laws favoured him over Folly in the first few matches of his reign. His passing looked top notch and his work-rate was there, too.
But in recent weeks the Owls faithful seem to have, well lost faith, with the Runcorn midfielder, after putting in some lacklustre performances and strolling around the pitch for most of the match, putting in one or two top class passes throughout the entire match.
Even so, 32 per cent of Vital Sheffield Wednesday users opted for Whelan and Lunt as the best midfield partnership on offer for the Owls this season.
And you clearly think Mr Whelan is vital to the heart of the Wednesday team - with just three per cent favouring a Folly and Lunt partnership.
