Last week's forum poll is done and dusted and the Vital SWFC members have voted for John Sheridan and Carlton Palmer as the Greatest Ever Owls Centre Midfield.
John joined the Owls from Nottingham Forest in November 1989. He became the unsung hero of Wednesday's 90s revival and played the best football of his career, scoring 33 goals in 244 appearances. Best known for his incisive passing and accurate free kick delivery, he will always be remembered for his goal against Manchester United that won the 1991 League Cup Final. John also won 34 caps for the Republic of Ireland, scoring five times.
Carlton moved to Sheffield Wednesday in February 1989, where he made his name in the top divisions in 286 appearances for the Owls. The much-maligned midfielder earned his reputation at Hillsborough, an intimidating presence and tireless workhorse in the engine room of the team. He left for Leeds in June 1994, returning for his final bow at S6 on loan in 2001. Carlton won 18 England caps.
They're probably the perfect partnership, which is why they are our choice for the Greatest Ever Owls Team.
A number of other midfielders got one or two votes, but Carlton and John topped our poll comfortably.
This week's forum poll is for the Greatest Ever Owls Left Wing (or Left Midfield), and we're also asking for nominations for the Greatest Ever Owls Strikers. We'll announce the results for Left Wing next Saturday!
The team so far reads: Pressman, Nilsson, Walker, Swan, Megson (D.), Waddle, Sheridan, Palmer..
