Some Sheffield Wednesday fans want Stuart Gray to return to Hillsborough from Fulham.
Wednesday are currently without a permanent manager, although according to the Star there may be another vacancy within the Owls’ coaching team.

The newspaper claims that Wednesday are considering bringing in an experienced coach to assist Lee Bullen, who was placed in temporary charge when Steve Bruce left to join Newcastle United last month.
Bullen and Gray previously worked together during the latter’s reign as assistant to Dave Jones and manager thereafter, when the Scot was coaching in the Owls’ academy.
And according to the following Wednesdayites, Gray – who is currently employed as number two to Scott Parker at Fulham – would be the ideal candidate for Bullen to lean on as he seeks to turn his caretaker reign into something longer-term.
This is what they’re saying on Twitter…
Stuart Gray would be a smart appointment

Stuart Gray or Terry Burton (Dave Jones assistant) could be popular appointments. Seem to remember Burton was held in high regard during his time with the club. #swfc

I don’t think he would come back but would love Stuart Gray alongside Bully.

My vote now at #swfc has changed. I’d give it Bullen and spend the money saved on a big name manager on some decent experienced assistants. I’d be happy with Stuart Gray in that role too for the tactical balance.

Gray was sacked by the Sheffield Wednesday chairman Dejphon Chansiri in the summer of 2015, clearing the way for Carlos Carvalhal’s arrival at Hillsborough.
And whether he would leave his job at Fulham to work for the Thai once again, remains to be seen.
