EFL boss ruled out of race for Sheffield Wednesday job

Plymouth Argyle boss Ryan Lowe will not be taking charge at Sheffield Wednesday, according to journalist Alan Nixon

Garry Monk was relieved of his duties by the Owls earlier in the week and the new manager hunt is underway.

Lowe is among a string of names linked with the job, with others including Tony Pulis, Paul Cook, Sol Campbell, and Sven-Goran Eriksson.

According to Nixon, however, he will not be appointed as Monk’s replacement at Wednesday.

It was reported elsewhere yesterday that the Owls are in advanced talks with Pulis and that he could be appointed ahead of the weekend.

The Welshman’s coaching ideology is markedly different than Lowe’s, with the 42-year-old, who started his career in management at Bury before moving to Plymouth, is known for his attacking philosophy.

Lowe helped Argyle secure promotion to League One last term and his side have made a fast start to life in the third tier – currently sitting just outside the top six.

Whoever takes charge at Hillsborough will first be looking to steer Wednesday clear of relegation, with the side second-bottom in the Championship due, in part, to a six-point deduction.

The Verdict

Given the news that has come out about Pulis recently, this is perhaps no surprise but it may be disappointing for some Owls fans, who may have wanted to see their club take a chance on a young and exciting manager.

It seems Wednesday are going the opposite way entirely in turning to an experienced head and one that is not exactly known for playing expansive football.

Plymouth supporters will no doubt be very relieved given the excellent job Lowe has done at Home Park over the past 17 months or so.
