‘Painful viewing,’ ‘Huge part of our decline’ – Many Sheffield Wednesday fans react to display from 30-year-old



A number of Sheffield Wednesday supporters have been bemoaning the contribution of defender Tom Lees following the Owls’ latest setback in their 2-0 defeat at home to Swansea City on Tuesday.

Darren Moore’s side headed into the game knowing they needed to get back to winning ways and respond to their 4-1 defeat at Queens Park Rangers on Saturday. However, against promotion-chasing Swansea, the Owls ended up on the wrong side of the margins with a couple of crucial individual mistakes proving to be the difference between the two sides.

One player who endured a difficult evening was Lees, who was responsible for the Owls conceding the opening goal when he was allowed Barry Bannan’s pass to go across his body and Andre Ayew stole possession from him and set up Jamal Lowe. It was the sort of mistake that Sheffield Wednesday could not afford to make and gifted their opponents a crucial lead.

Are these 17 facts about Sheffield Wednesday’s club badge true or false?

Lees did keep going and did not let his head drop, and he managed to make five clearances and two interceptions as well as winning all six aerial duels he contested (Sofascore). However, he gave the ball away 14 times and that shows that he is just not suited to how Moore is wanting the Owls to play in terms of building the play out from the back at times.

Many Sheffield Wednesday fans were suggesting that Lees just does not have the ability to play that way and that if that is the approach going forwards he might have to leave.
