Sheffield Wednesday have had their fair share of players over the years that haven’t quite hit the heights they would have originally aimed for in the Championship.
One of those that fits that description well is Gary Hooper, with the experienced forward spending three years with the Owls from 2016-2019.
Hooper scored 31 goals in 89 appearances, and was a rare bright spark in a frustrating few seasons for Sheffield Wednesday.

The Scotsman’s time with the club was hit with a number of injury problems though, and the Hillsborough faithful might be thinking that they didn’t quite see the best of Hooper in his time with the club.
The forward departed in the summer of 2019 after his contract reached a conclusion, and he has since moved to Australia to play for Wellington Phoenix.
Plenty of Sheffield Wednesday fans took to social media to issue their thoughts on their former striker, who is now playing his football in Australia.

What could have been.
Was very good but far too injury prone. Gutted.

Best all round finisher since the mid 90’s, injury prone but a proper baller.
