Sheffield Wednesday striker Atdhe Nuhiu has hit a purple patch of form the Owls of late, and has been a key man in ensuring the Sheffield club look like finishing their season on a high following a miserable, injury ravaged campaign on the whole.
The big Kosovan has been an excellent outlet for Jos Luhukay, and despite not always been number one choice or a big fan favouirte, there can be little doubting his impact on the team in terms of his stats, as shared by Radio Sheffield reported Rob Staton after the game.
Atdhe Nuhiu — it’s now nine goals and four assists in 12 games since Jos Luhukay took over. Not just that, his effort up front infectious. A must re-sign for #SWFC

Obviously with Nuhiu always being such a divisive figure during his time in S6, the Owls fans are always going to differ in opinion when it comes to keeping the big striker on the books, with the likes of Gary Hooper, Steven Fletcher, and Fernando Forestieri all still to come back into the fold.
Here at FLW, we were intrigued to find out what Owls fans were saying about Nuhiu following today’s win over Sunderland, and we were on hand to delve into their responses a bit more…
Can’t fault his current run but if we find ourselves with him in our matchday squad at start of next season we have big big problems.

He’s on great run yes and stats don’t lie… but deep down we all know he’s not good enough to take us to next level

You can apply statistics to any argument. 26 league goals in 5 seasons. We know his level. We have far more quality in the squad now. He won’t get any games next year regardless

He's only 28, peak of most pros career who's to say under jos he won't score 12+ goals next season? well worth the money he's sure to be on, outstanding skills for size of the guy, presence commitment passion heart fearless need I go on?

Something about him. Effective for me despite being slagged off by the owls fans previous
