'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Laws' Musings: Post-Luton

Wednesday boss Brian Laws blasts his Owls side for missing chances in attack and making poor decisions at the back as they fell to a 3-2 defeat against lowly Luton on Tuesday night.

All that talk was of former Owl Drew Talbot returning to face his former club for the first time since his 250k move to Kenilworth Road in January - and it had to be the pacey forward who made the equaliser and score the winner to leave Wednesday without a win in 2007.

And the Owls boss blamed poor finishing and rash decisions in defence for their defeat against Mike Newell's men.

'We should have scored two in the first five minutes, the keeper has had to make a good save and that could have been game over,' Laws told the official SWFC site.

'The fact is that we've made an error of judgement for the first one by Mark Crossley. He's not done what he should have and that's punched it high and wide and it's ended up in the back of the net. But we've responded, got back on top of the game and the second half was all about making the right decisions.

'Defensively we made some shocking decisions tonight, we've just gifted them two goals by making wrong decisions. We've missed the ball, lo and behold, Talbot has gone on and crossed it and it's an own goal.

'The third, to cap it all, was like Keystone Cops; everyone's made a wrong decision and it's fallen to Talbot and he's got the winner. I am very, very angry and very disappointed because we're better than that and we've got to cut out these silly mistakes.'

And Wednesday have just three days to mend their ways as they look to collect their first three points of the year against another relegation candidate, Southend United, at Hillsborough on Saturday.

The defence seems to be at fault all too often at the moment. When will Hillsy be back?

Hills is almost as awful as Spurr, but with a little more pace.....

I wudnt say spurr is awful, he is young and has come in to the team to fill the gap and at times is one of the players who seems to giv it all hes got unlike sum others

spurr is one of the top young english defenders in the championship at the moment, he's playing out of position but that's part of growing up at a club with a small squad. i'm really bored of all these fickle fans, **** off to leeds if that's how you feel, you'll fit in better there. wednesday are in a much better position than last year, if we keep building like this season we'll soon be in the promise land. as for slagging laws, he's an intelligent tacticion and knows we'd never have got promoted this year, never never never, if you want a cheerleader manager i'm going to have to refer you to leeds again, good luck in league 1
