A poll carried out on Vital Sheffield Wednesday this last week has seen a record number of Owls fans vote for the midfield as the area of the team which needs strengthening most.
87 per cent of voters think that Paul Sturrock needs to bring in a midfielder in the January transfer window if the Owls are to avoid the drop to League One.
Paul Sturrock has been linked with a number of players since the transfer window re-opened, with most of the focus directed at Nottingham Forest midfielder David Friio. Friio played for Sturrock at Plymouth Argyle, where he made his name in the English game. He's now out of favour at the City Ground, and is unlikely to command a high transfer fee or wages. Dennis Wise has also been a name mentioned around Hillsborough, as a name who would command the midfield and give the Owls a fighting chance of survival in the Championship.
Paul Sturrock has recently told Craig Rocaslte he is surplus to requirements at the club, and with Glenn Whelen struggling to find the form of last season, the Owls are desperate for an experienced midfield player to command the centre of the park.
Surprisingly, the area with next highest amount of votes was the goalkeeper, with eight per cent of the votes. David Lucas seems to have the confidence of the fans, but has suffered a knee injury recently and is due to return between the sticks in the next few weeks. Paul Sturrock seems unsure about substitute goalkeeper Chris Adamson, having brought in Nicky Weaver on-loan to cover for the injured Lucas.
Fans seem to think that the defensive area of the team is fine as it is, with just three per cent of the votes going in that direction. The defensive duo of Graham Coughlan and Richard Wood seems to be working well, and Frankie Simek is a fans favourite. Paul Sturrock has recently signed Peter Gilbert at left-back, who seems to have settled in well after his move from Leicester City.
Only 3 weeks ago fans were calling for the signing oof numerous strikers, but now fans seem happy with the current set of strikers at the club, as only 2 per cent voted for the attack as the weakest area of the side. The signings of Deon Burton and Marcus Tudgay, as well as the imminent return of Steve Maclean and Drew Talbot has left Owls fans feeling relatively happy. Paul Sturrock has said he is still looking for another target man.
