Laws Delighted With 5-Star Owls

Laws Delighted With 5-Star Owls

Wednesday boss Brian Laws couldn't hide his delight after Wednesday made their hard work on the training pitch pay off with the 5-0 hammering of sorry Southampton at the weekend.

Laws masterminded the Owls' biggest win in over four years at a happy Hillsborough on Saturday afternoon and was quick to praise his side for returning to the form that saw them impress last season.

'I think it has been a terrific week of results for us, today was a terrific performance and I am absolutely delighted for the players because they are now showing the team spirit that we had last year,' Laws told the official SWFC website.

'It was quite evident then that if you work hard you can get results and today we have really performed as a team.

'You can point your finger at individuals and say Sodje has two goals and Whelan got two goals but, all in all, it was team effort and the only way you can get those opportunities is by hard work. That's what we showed today and it's credit to the players.'

The Owls gaffer will now have two weeks to work with his men with the international break giving Wednesday a week off from action at the weekend, ahead of another vital clash against QPR on Saturday, November 24.

But Southampton boss George Burley was left shocked at his side's second-half destruction as the Saints continue to struggle in the league.

"To concede in the manner we did was ridiculous. You can't defend like that. We've got strength and pace in defence so it was a shock to everybody," he said.

"A result like that is going to linger for a couple of weeks but we've just got to come back fighting."

i am delighted for laws. i must admit i had started to doubt him but he deserves this win, also well done (for once) to the chairman for sticking with his man.

I'm really chuffed for hime - it's about time we stuck with our managers through the rough times. Glad there was no knee jerk reaction like with Sturrock last season, now we have something to build on. Laws makes some strange decisions (in my very humble opinion!) sometimes but I think in general he's the right man for the job for us. Think about it this way - I'd rather have him than the other Brian down at the pig pen!!!

I firmly believe that Laws is the man to take us forward. Have a great deal of time and respect for him and think he knows what is needed at Hillsborough to get us into the Top flight again. Glad hes turned things around cos I was worried he was gonna fall into the catagory of the many sacked managers at Hillsborough and that would have been sacralidge. Keep up the good work Brian. UP THE OWLS !!!

Agreed steve. He is the man to take us forward and hope he can do it. When he first came i thought we had made the wrong choice, but im glad he has proved me wrong. Got to give the board praise aswell for sticking by him, where in the last few years we would have got rid.
