Last week's poll on Vital Sheffield Wednesday asked users whether the season has been a successful one or not, and the results are in!
And in probably the biggest landslide vote since this website got up and running, a massive 97 per cent of users have voted overwhelmingly in favour of the current campaign being a successful one.
As we speak, the Owls still carry slim hopes of achieving a play-off place in the Championship with four games remaining thanks to two superb Easter weekend victories away at Cardiff City and at home to Ipswich.
And if you'd have offered that on a plate to most Wednesday fans at the start of the campaign I'm sure they'd have snapped your hand off. In fact, if you'd have offered it in late October I'm positive ALL Owls fans would have!
Brian Laws has certainly turned round the fortunes of the club following that 4-0 hammering at Colchester United.
Thanks must also go to Sean McAuley who stepped in at a difficult time to steer the Wednesday ship in the right direction and give Brian Laws a great stage to carry on his work in to the coming months.
The only sour point, of course, came with the sacking of Paul Sturrock following that humiliation at Layer Road back in November.
Although results weren't going well for the Owls, many Wednesdayites felt the sacking of Paul Sturrock was a big mistake by the board at the time, even more so after chairman Dave Allen had given the man who guided us to play-off glory a new contract at the club just weeks before.
Sturrock had always stated that mid-table would be a success for the club this season after avoiding relegation last term, and many fans believed Sturrock was the man to achieve a mid-table finish just as his side were coming back together from injury.
Still, nobody can doubt that the football played under former Scunthorpe boss Laws has been of a more entertaining nature than that of Sturrock - so much so that Hillsborough is now officially the home of goals in the Championship (whether they're for or against is a different matter!).
And Wednesday look set for their highest finish in the division since relegation from the Premiership all those years ago, and that can only be seen a success surely?
Bring on next season!
