Chris O'Grady to sign for Barnsley for 400k and Jacob Mellis to the Owls in a swap deal. UTO

Believable7 Unbelievable20

We need to build from the second half of last season, players that did well like Helan, Olifinjaro and Lita, I would live to stay.
Those players who have offered contracts are all good players and I hope they sign.
Any additions we make, as long as they are better than we have and not lazy past it players that disrupt the changing room like Bothroyd did in his time at Hillsborough then I think we will have a good foundation for a squad going into next season

Agree12 Disagree3

Bothroyd upset the players fans alike

Agree15 Disagree1

How can this happen when mellis on loan at barnsley

Agree3 Disagree9

And what is so funny is that his comments about Wednesday being just a Championship side look like sour grapes now his "fantastic" club have slipped back!

Agree6 Disagree1

Coke was our best player second half of last season, and everyone's ignoring him

It's insulting to suggest Olofinjana was better

Agree9 Disagree7

Know your facts Mellis was released by Chelsea last season and Barnsley took him on it could happen but highly unlikely

Agree5 Disagree4

Mellis on loan?

Agree3 Disagree7

Sorry friend but coke can't string 2 passes together. Gives the ball away a lit an drifts in an out of games. For a young lad he, s had quite a few clubs includin some in Scotland. And he, s ad loan spells away from us. He, s not a good player m8 but I must admit he could be if he was consistent. He does show some skills on the odd occasion.

Agree4 Disagree7

Coke has all the attributes u want in a centre mid! Would love 2 c him and a goal getter in the middle next season. Think darren ambrose would do a job

Agree9 Disagree2

Simon church is out of contract bring him in if (when COG) goes!

Agree3 Disagree2

Coke can't pass? Have you even been watching the matches? He's a better passer than all of our other central midfielders, he tackles well, he can actually dribble and he's completely 2-footed

he must have the highest pass completion of any of our midfielders

Agree8 Disagree3

He is a good player should keep coke

Agree0 Disagree0

This is the Championship. The reason why Wednesday, and nearly all clubs out with the Premiership, do not sign players prior to the 30th June, is that contracts expire then.

I have been informed by a club insider that Wednesday have lodged a bid of £400. 000 for Walsall striker Will Grigg.

Believable5 Unbelievable13

20 goals in league one at 21 years old looks pretty decent; can't be as crap as Madine anyway

Agree5 Disagree12

£400 is a bargain mate.

Agree10 Disagree2

He's out of contract isn't he?

Agree3 Disagree4

It will be no decent signings for the owls again this coming season, you better prepare yourselves owls fans! DJ brought so many cheap signings last season, none of them has been developed or proved himself in this division, a part from Kieran lee and McCabe a bit. the others were ready made experienced high level players, like Kirkland and Gardner (not Tayler?). The fans have been going in their large numbers to the stadium, much lore increased attendants, than before. where the extra money has gone? If we want to compete we better get just few high quality proven players, not antique, that they will make a difference on the team. Otherwise it'll be another struggling nervous season for us, especially if we loose some good players we have already, e. g, Buxton, Lliara, coke, kirkland or even Prutton. then say good bye to the championship. DO I SOUND NEGATIVE? NO I DO NOT JUST REALISTIC reflecting from last season experience!

Aston villa looking at him so can't see him coming to us

Agree3 Disagree1

Not realistic just negative. We will sign some quality players.

Agree5 Disagree5

Being out of contract makes no difference as the bowman rule does not apply to under 24's

Agree4 Disagree0

Last season bringing Bothroyd in had a massive negative effect and we ended up struggling at bottom because of it, i'm hoping this season DJ will have learnt from that fiasco, Ill be happy with a mid table finnish although i'd love to finnish a good bit higher.

Agree3 Disagree1

I see the weed is peddling his rubbish again trying to stir unrest. The arguments are tired and boring. We have all moved on from Boothroyd and dodgy contract which required us to play him. Why not mention all other loan signings who did well, oh that would sound positive.

Agree1 Disagree1

You would have taken Bothroyd, as would I.
Hindsight, makes you an expert, apparently.

Agree3 Disagree1

Kieran Lee has not been good, neither has Prutton

where are people getting the idea that running around like a headless chicken is productive

Lee is almost comically bad at reading the movement of the ball, and Prutton must have

Agree1 Disagree8

To be fair lees been played out ov position he's not a winger so its abit harsh slagging the kid off. he's a fullback.

Agree3 Disagree0

Kieran lee has endless energy he always works back

Agree8 Disagree0

Maybe Keiran just needs glasses?

Agree1 Disagree3

Kieron lees done well pal. don't know what games you been watchin

Agree5 Disagree1

Kieran lee works hard so does prutton its no coincidence when lee came in on right wing and Helan was on left we stopped conceding as many goals so to say he's crap I think is a bit harsh. He was put there to work back and chase people down. So as far as I'm concerned he was brilliant.

Agree6 Disagree1

Griggs 21 goals at 21 in L1. Sounds like Madine the. Previous season. Big step up to champ

Agree3 Disagree0

Cant stress this enough helan was poor at us, his got pace but hasn't got a clue, looked disinterested don't get me wrong his pass completetion was very good, (if he played for the other team) wouldn't like to see him back at s6!
