It’s fair to say that has been a rather mixed season for Sheffield Wednesday, as the remainder of the 2019/20 EFL campaign remains in limbo.
The Owls endured a rollercoaster of a summer, seeing manager Steve Bruce only a few weeks before the start of the season and seeing Lee Bullen take charge for the first month of the campaign.
Garry Monk was soon announced as Bruce’s permanent successor, with the former Birmingham and Leeds boss losing only one of his first eight games in charge of the Yorkshire club.
Have Sheffield Wednesday done these 15 things in the last 10 years?
But it has been a nightmare 2020 for Wednesday thus far, with the Owls picking up only two wins and losing seven times in the Championship.
One player who has been at the heart of Wednesday’s highs and lows this season is Julian Borner, who arrived at Hillsborough from Arminia Bielefeld in the summer.
The German defender has since been a key player under Monk, making 33 appearances across all competitions and chipping in with one goal in his debut season in Yorkshire.
A small group of Sheffield Wednesday fans on Twitter have been discussing Borner’s season so far, with his performances often dividing the opinions of the Hillsborough faithful this term.
Here is what they had to say…
Average at best, but likeable

Very happy with börner.

Brilliant defender. Love the guy. Once Monk goes we'll hopefully see the best of him again.

Yeah good defender. Reads the game well just needs partnering with someone with pace.

Average at best for me

Regardless of his work-rate and passion, I can’t argue with his performances at all. I actually think he’s been one of our best players this season. Much better than Lees #swfc

I thought he was superb alongside big Dom…not the same with Tom Lees. Still rate him though, a great free transfer.
