Could be a bit tense this one.  Owls fans are generally not happy with Moore's management from what I can tell - but they've got injuries to key players notably Luongo and Windass so performances have been "variable" and they sit mid-table.
Not sure whether Saido Berahino is crocked or not but he's only played four games. That said they've still got a fair bit of talent including our own Barry Bannan (and we've got Kieran Lee Smile)
Their fans reckon we will be overconfident and cocky and generally seem to want to take us down a peg or two but Evatt will be aware of that and hopefully the lads will go into the game fully focussed.
For me that's the key.
If we are switched on and play at our best we will have enough to win this game - anything less and we could be made to suffer and there's always the threat of a Bannan FK into the top bins regardless of who's on top so we'll need to take our chances.
Heart says 0 - 2, Head says 2 - 2.

Won't be joining you for this one lads. Am visiting some old friends this weekend but will be taking my dodgy Firestick thingy in the off chance I can slide off for a couple of hours and watch the match on the quiet. Don't tell the missus Smile

I'd be happy with a draw against Wednesday, should be a big crowd as well, too big for a league 1 game anyway.

This is certainly one we can win. Wednesday aren’t playing well, are a little slow and suspect at the back. Leave out the name Sheffield Wednesday and they’re no different to any other club. Since we seem to be able to perform far better away from home, I’m going for a good win for Whites, so I’ll go for a 2-0 win to Wanderers. There will be a big crowd and we can use that to get them to get on the backs of their team if we go ahead.

This one could go either way for me. Wednesday should be the better side but they haven’t got their shit together yet and we need to take advantage of that before the next few games which will be difficult to pick up points. If we get the first goal I fancy us to go on to win it. Their fans are unhappy with their manager and could put them under pressure if we go ahead. An away point would be good but if we have aspirations to finish in the top 6 we need to win this one. A really good fixture to gauge where we sit in this league.

Will Evatt keep the same team as last game and let Lee play against his old club? If he does then he'll get a great reception as they loved him at Wednesday but will Evatt care about that?

Well if he drops Lee the way he’s playing at the moment it would not only be a disappointment but an insult. How can you drop someone who has been hugely instrumental in our last two wins? I know IE has difficult decisions to make but I actually think Lee and not Sheehan is an easy and obvious one.

More difficult is whether to start Baka instead of either Doyle or Isgrove? Again, I think he’ll start Doyle and bring back Isgrove, who for me links up far better down the right with Jones than Baka does. Besides that, it’s nice to have a couple of attacking players in Baka and Josh, who can come on late in the game and change it.

Whatever team he picks, I’m feeling confident that we’ll come away with the points and heap even more pressure on Darren and his boys!! SmileSmile

Its a tough one this but if we are on to it from the start then its a big pitch and Dapo should have plenty of the ball, normally you would say first goal is crucial, but this team does come back in games so another positive, We have goals in the team so anything is possible, i agree with Whites you get blinded by the name Sheffield Wednesday, The key for me is keep Bannan off the ball give him space and we get punished.

Join me in Finland. After the game we can beat each other with birch twigs. Shocked

Dear me, what a load of crap. Can't believe I went to Finland with Bonce to watch that utter shite.

A poor team made us look even poorer. We were too slow and lacked any ideas. The crossing was embarrassing at times, I do wonder how professional footballers can get to this level of football and still hit the first man 75% of the time. Dreadful.

Out attack is toothless. Is it just one goal from open play for Doyle now? Evans should drop him, we don't want another Crellin situation. Having said that, who would replace him? Neither Kachunga & Bakayoko look to have goals in them.

I hope Evans stops the daily bollocks about how great this set of players are. They weren't great today and they need to be told so. And the fans need to hear it.

Same report as the many of our past games --- the build up is too fooking slow. Too much backwards and sideways passing - not a single chip that I can remember over the middle for a player to run on to.
There is a unwillingness to get the ball crossed early - we start doing that after a goal down and 5 minutes left in the game. Either our mid-field players are not good enough to play a telling thru ball or have been told to pass it out wide to Dapo - who then attempts to beat three men and give the ball away.
We are a decent mid table team right now - nothing more nothing less.

From what I’ve seen Doyle is still the best option up front. Unless he tries playing him with Bakayoko I don’t see what else he can try. I can’t see what purpose Kachunga serves and strongly suspect he won’t improve. We need more goals from midfield and the big lads to get on the end of some set pieces.

So which is it? 
Some people think we were awful and others think that we were unfortunate not only to lose but to not take all three points.

I don’t think we were particularly good today but we were certainly more than a match for Wednesday. Like almost every game I’ve seen (all on iFollow) bar a couple where we were much the better team, we’ve been pretty much evenly matched with the opposition and any game could have gone either way.
For me, we do create chances but the finishing is lacking. The defence (defense?) is no better or worse than any other in this league and while we could improve it won’t be the make or break. We need a clinical finisher for this level as everyone else does but I don’t blame Doyle for not being that. As much as I admire his play he’s just ok in L1 and that isn’t going to change.
Our midfield is a whole other conversation and most likely the difference between a play off spot and a 10th place finish if Evatt can’t either coach or spend to improve it.

Frustrating day; we were the better team but (Doyle) didn’t take two glorious chances at the start of each half - and we conceded a sloppy goal. 

Dapo seems to be getting decent reviews in the press I’ve read but, by his very high standards, I thought he was poor with his final ball and if he’s not on it we struggle - also thought Sarc was anonymous - I like him a lot but do wonder if a more dynamic number 10 could be what we’re missing.

Having said all that the fact we’re going to Wednesday, dominating possession and disappointed not to win shows how strong we are at the moment, feels like once a couple of things slot into place we’ll be a force in this league.

Evatt calling out the ref is becoming a bit of a joke after every defeat, how about leaving Doyle on the bench, because it's like playing with 10 men at the moment, what we'd give for an ALF at the minute, Evatt's biggest mistake to date is not signing a proven striker, and I like Evatt but he seems very arrogant and stubborn.

Nonsense to say Doyle is like playing with 10 men. He does plenty as the lone front man in closing down and linking play for others. He desperately needs a goal and maybe it is time to give Baka a start but you can’t just write him off entirely.

I don’t agree with the ten men bit on Doyle Martin but it’s clear we do need a quality striker. Unfortunately, there are limits on what we can and will pay and that obviously means proven players like Charlie Wyke say, won’t be coming here. It’s also never easy to get a good player in January so I’m assuming a loan at best will be IE’s option but can anybody actually name someone who may possibly fit the bill because I can’t? I think many suggested Stockton in August who’s flying at the moment but it didn’t happen. I can’t think that one’s a money issue so maybe he didn’t fit Evatt’s profile for the team, so who do we know that does?

We are not scoring at the moment - so blame the striker.

Nope ---- tweak the system to provide better chances - move the ball faster etc.

Every team is looking for quality strikers - if there are any we can't afford them anyway.
If Ian could stop being pig headed and tweak and rotate players a little I think we would almost be unplayable as shown so far in most games. That might be his in-experience showing - I dunno.

Just some poor decision making on Saturday, the most glaring when we were three on one, and the ball went left, when Lee was in on goal had it gone right.
I'm not throwing him under the bus just yet.

Yep, that was the most glaring of the bad decisions. We have to create more clear cut chances instead of criticizing players for not taking the half chances.
