Sheffield Wednesday’s dismal season continued this afternoon, as they were beaten 2-1 at home by Yorkshire rivals Barnsley.
Defeat for Wednesday at Hillsborough #SHWBAR
— Sheffield Wednesday (@swfc) December 12, 2020
A goal from Josh Windass gave the Owls the lead, but they were pegged back just ten minutes later as Cauley Woodrow equalised. Dominik Frieser would put the visitors ahead in the first-half, with what turned out to be the winner.
In truth, Wednesday could have few complaints about the result, as they were second best for large spells, and they struggled to create clear chances, although they did improve as the game went on.
That leaves Tony Pulis’ side bottom of the Championship and four points from safety. It also means the new boss has picked up just three points from seven games, which clearly isn’t good enough.

As you would expect, the fans were furious with the latest defeat, and questions have started to be asked of Pulis as he searches for his first win.
Here we look at some of the reaction from Twitter…
Abysmal, shocking and inexcusable. Hopefully by now all "Wednesdayites" who has bashed Monk and Jos have finally realised managers aren't always to blame…

In a must win game, pulis starts with one striker, first half was horrific , second half when we actually played to try and get something and more up front Barnsley didn't get much out the second half. But its another record broken 11 years they haven't beat us at Hillsborough.

Horrendous tactics and team set up

3 points and 0 wins so far out of 21 points available for pulis
Not the new manager effect we hoped for

Second half was much better. We played 4-4-2 and should have started like this at HOME to BARNSLEY.
Why did we set up like they are Real Madrid?
Manager has to take responsibility for that. Already he’s looking like the wrong man for job imo

Want my £650 back for this year. Not acceptable for it to be carried into division 3. Absolute joke and embarrassment of a club. Sell up Chasiri your not wanted here

A product of recruiting every other clubs rejects and then putting a dinosaur in charge of them. Its getting worse! What are the tactics? What were those subs? Awful #swfc
