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


That's all folks! The end of another rollercoaster season for the Owls. Vital Sheffield Wednesday member JoshOwl takes a look back at how the campaign unfolded...

Well, what a season, and after this incredible campaign I just had to write an article about it.

To think how low down we were at the start - we were fighting for our lives at the bottom of the Championship and now we are disappointed about not reaching the play-offs!

What an amazing season we've had: we must have a set a new record for the worst run of form followed by the best run of form in the space of a couple of months - you just won't find another team in the world like Sheffield Wednesday FC.

And the real turning point in our season, even though I hate to say this, was the sacking of Paul Sturrock. I know this wasn't the most popular decision but it looks as though its turned out for the best. I think we were in and around the bottom three when he got the sack, but hey what a decision it turned out to be.

In came Sean McAuley and he really helped turn our season around. The team remained unbeaten in six games if my memory serves me right before we appointed Brian Laws, and what a super start he had.

The only down side of his Sheffield Wednesday managerial career to date was been the slight blip in the new year where he did come under some pressure from the fans, but he came through and the team is currently on another one of our amazing runs of form.

Overall I think it has been a great achievement this season to finish in the top half after the bad start we had, and we even have some top Premiership teams linked with our players which is always a good thing. Even though we want to keep our best players, you know your team is doing well when Premiership teams are rumoured to be buying them.

Let's just hope we keep them. I have also seen Brian Laws linked with the Bolton manager's position before Sammy Lee was appointed. Again it was only a rumour but it's a sign of how well he's done for us since he came in that he's being linked with a Premiership job - hopefully his job will be with us for the long term!

All I can say now is BRING ON NEXT SEASON! Up The Owls!

Nice one Josh I always wondered when you were going to write something apart from on the forums!
