If ever there was a time for blind optimism it was the football pre-season, but it seems this summer brings a mixed bag of emotions from Wednesday fans.
Owls boss Brian Laws guided his men to a stunning end-of-season run of just one defeat in 13 games last term, and the news that a takeover of the club could be completed before the start of this season meant Owls fans were all set foran action packed close season.
But the lack of activity on both the takeover and transfer front has left some fans underwhelmed, and a very mixed bag of emotions are coming from Vital Sheffield Wednesday users, shown by last week's weekly poll.
We asked you how you felt about the club at the present time, with all five options ranging from very positive to very negative grabbing a fair share of your votes.
28 per cent of users felt very positive of the new season ahead, with 21 per cent also feeling in positive mood this close season, while 15 per cent felt pretty average as far as pre-seasons go...
But the lack of transfer activity and takeover talk led to 23 per cent of Vital users feeling negative about the club at the moment with 13 per cent feeling very negative - quite a story considering the end of season success last term.
And the majority of the talk on the Vital Sheffield Wednesday forums was regarding the negative aspects coming from S6 this close season.
Forum member NicNac said: 'Negative, but I wasn't sure whether to go for Average or not...
'Letting Macca leave, no signings (ok, Grant and Hinds, but they don't exactly fill me with confidence) and no sign of this so called investment that will happen before the beginning of the season. I know there's another month to go, and usually no news is good news, but I'm just finding it far too frustrating!'
And OrtonOwl said: 'Gutted at the lack of signings. Really needed to keep the club on the upwards spiral after a good end to the season. Looks like that could all go sour very quickly. We are supposed to be showing our key players that we have ambition but that does not seem to be happening and some of these players could leave.'
So it's a mixed reaction from Vital users on the state of the club at the moment. Let's hope for a bit more action on the transfer and takeover fronts in the coming weeks, but we shouldn't hold our breath...
