‘Don’t even care now’, ‘Losing again’ – Plenty of Sheffield Wednesday fans angry as big error leads to red card and penalty
Sheffield Wednesday started this 2020/21 Sky Bet Championship campaign already in deficit.
They were 12 points off of zero after infringements of the EFL’s FFP regulations. That penalty was halved to six points earlier this season.
Even if the other six points were restored, they would still be not enough to drag them out of the relegation zone.
Wednesday woes continue as Owls suffer
A revival threatened under interim manager, Neil Thompson, but that soon faded. Even the pilfering of Darren Moore from neighbours Doncaster Rovers hasn’t sparked the Owls into action.
A late, late loss at Hillsborough to another local rival Rotherham saw much criticism. That carried over into today’s game against Reading.
Red card fiasco and Wednesday vitriol
The game was hardly underway before Julian Borner brought down Reading’s George Puscas. Michael Olise converted the resulting penalty to leave Wednesday on 10 men and 1-0 down. Against a side like Reading, that is a hill to climb.
These Sheffield Wednesday fans, already well steeped in disappointment, were quick to comment after Julian Borner’s red card and Reading taking the lead from the resultant penalty.
Don’t even care now
