‘Makes sense for us’ – Many Sheffield Wednesday fans react to reports on potential fresh managerial candidate



A number of Sheffield Wednesday supporters have been reacting to the latest reports suggesting that the Owls could make a move for former Watford manager Vladimir Ivić.

The Owls are still searching for a successor to Tony Pulis after he was sacked by the club just ten matches into his reign. Sheffield Wednesday have been afforded a little more time to make their choice over who is the right man to take charge for the remainder of this term, with caretaker manager Neil Thompson winning both his league games in charge and beating Exeter City in the FA Cup.

It had been reported that the Owls are had held talks with former Wigan Athletic manager Paul Cook, and he had indicated that he could potentially be open to making the move to Sheffield Wednesday. However, it has now emerged that those talks are no longer ongoing.

Did Sheffield Wednesday sign each of these 14 players for more or less than £1 million?

It has now emerged that Sheffield Wednesday could turn to Ivic, according to reports in his native Serbia via Sheffield Star. The former Watford manager was sacked by the Hornets back in December despite having guided them up to fifth place in the Championship table. However, despite winning nine of his 20 league games a 2-0 defeat at Huddersfield Town saw him leave the club.

The 43-year-old’s style of play was quite reserved at Watford, but he did get some results, so it would be an interesting appointment for the Owls to consider. However, it has been reported by ESPN Editor Dale Johnson that changes to work permit rules post-Brexit might stop him taking over the Owls.

Many Sheffield Wednesday fans were left far from convinced over the Serbian and were hoping this appointment could be avoided.

Here then, we take a look at some of the best reactions on social media…
