Some Sheffield Wednesday supporters are reacting on Twitter after Jose Gomes was sacked by Reading.
The Portuguese manager was relieved of his duties on Wednesday, just 10 months after taking charge of the Royals.
It was during his reign that Reading signed Lucas Joao from the Owls.
But the striker – for whom it is claimed the Berkshire side could pay up to £7 million – has scored just once in 10 league outings for his new employers.
And although he also has a couple of assists to his name, Joao has done little to make the Wednesday fans he left behind miss him too much.
This is what some of them are saying…
Thanks for the Joao money José https://t.co/lraQbAZhgj

Sheffield Wednesday, who beat Reading on the opening day with Joao on the scoresheet, currently sit 11 points and 14 places above the third-from-bottom Royals.
Joao is scheduled to return to Hillsborough with his new side on 15 February.
Wednesday fans – are your side coping better or worse without Joao involved?
