‘Shocking,’ ‘Embarrassing’ – Many Sheffield Wednesday fans react to performance of player in Preston loss



A number of Sheffield Wednesday fans have all been bemoaning the performance of Barry Bannan following the Owls’ frustrating 1-0 defeat at Preston North End on Saturday.

Tony Pulis would have been hoping to get off to a winning start to life as Sheffield Wednesday manager and capitalise on Preston’s poor home record so far this season heading into the game. However, any real chance of them managing to claim a much-needed win were ended early on after Josh Windass was shown a red card on 17 minutes.

The Owls were forced onto the back foot for most of the contest after the sending off and were forced to concede the vast majority of possession to Preston. That saw them become heavily reliant on set pieces and the long throwing abilities of Callum Paterson to create chances in the final third.

What squad number does Jordan Rhodes wear for Wednesday?

Bannan was tasked with producing the quality from set-pieces needed to help Wednesday get back on level terms, but the midfielder was far too often found wanting with his delivery when the Owls needed a good ball into the box to put their hosts under real pressure in the second half.

The 30-year-old had previously found game time hard to come by under Pulis when the pair were together at Crystal Palace, and he will need to offer more than he did at Preston to avoid slipping down the pecking order again under the experienced manager this time with Wednesday.

Here then, we take a look at some of the best reactions from Sheffield Wednesday fans to his performance on social media…
