‘Joke of a manager’, ‘Laughable’ – Many Sheffield Wednesday fans fume at Tony Pulis decision in Huddersfield defeat

Published

Sheffield Wednesday were comprehensively beaten by Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Town last night and many Owls fans have been left fuming at the decision to take Massimo Luongo off. 

The dynamic midfielder has been one of Wednesday’s best players in what has been a frustrating first few months of the season but he was withdrawn at halftime by Tony Pulis, who put on Joey Pelupessy in his place.

Having missed the defeat to Norwich due to suspension, Luongo was back in the starting XI against the Owls but after goals from Josh Koroma and Isaac Mbenza put Huddersfield two up at the break, he was replaced as Pulis looked to change things up.

The Welshman told Yorkshire Live’s Dom Howson after the game that his decision to replace the central midfielder was tactical, adding: “Massimo just looked a little short.”

The introduction of Pelupessy did little to turn the tide of the game and the Terriers should have got further ahead four minutes into the second half but Juninho Bacuna blazed a penalty wide.

Luongo may feel a little hard done by, having connected with 100% of his passes, won 66% of his defensive duels, lost possession just once and made one and one tackle in the first half (Sofascore).
