Owls' Passion Delights Laws

Owls' Passion Delights Laws

Wednesday boss Brian Laws was left with the same feeling as two thirds of Sheffield at the weekend after Wednesday ran in one of their most comfortable derby day victories ever.

Laws was in confident mood going in to the 119th Steel City derby and he came out on top against Blades' boss Bryan Robson as Akpo Sodje and Marcus Tudgay fired Wednesday to bragging rights in Sheffield for a monnth at least.

And the Owls boss insisted his charges out-battled their red and white opponents with a performance powered by passion, committment and desire.

'We are all ecstatic, there's no doubt about it, we are delighted for the football club and the supporters, who have suffered without a derby win for such a long time,' Laws told the official SWFC website.

'I hope that goes a long way to taking that bit of suffering away, they have got some bragging rights now and they haven't seen that for a long time.

Over 30,000 fans attended the clash, the Owls' biggest attendance of the season so far, despite strict ticketing regulations, and Laws was full of praise for the Owls' 12th man, who kept the travelling United faithful quiet throughout.

'It was a magnificent occasion today,' Laws continued.

'The supporters were absolutely outstanding from start to finish and gave the feeling about the place that if you were to get that week in week out, what could you do with it? It is electrifying and it certainly gave everyone a spur today.

'It wasn't about the football side of it today it was about the passion, commitment, the desire, and the tackles.'

And what about your passion Bri? Swinging your scarf around when the first went in, bombing down the wing after the second. I love you Brian Laws! :D

So Proud to be an Owl right now ! What a team performance, what a mangerial performance he he !. Ive been a big fan of Laws from the start and I think his show of true passion on Saturday was a great boost for the club I hope he remains at Hillsborough for a long while to come as Im sure hes the right man to take us forward. If only the so called board ( whatevas left of it ) could show the club only a quater of the passion Laws showed the Im sure we would be ok. UP THE OWLS !!!!!
