‘Embarrassing’: Some Wednesday fans respond to latest financial rumours

Some Sheffield Wednesday supporters have taken to Twitter to comment on reports suggesting the Owls players aren’t being paid in full and on time right now.

The Owls started the season with a points deduction for financial irregularities.

Many felt the points deduction, which was later reduced to six points, would be the punishment the club needed to prompt action and kickstart a more profession approach.

The latest rumours claim the Owls players’ full wages are being deferred.

When asked about the situation, Iorfa refused to deny the speculation by saying it was a ‘confidential matter’ as he instead focuses on the upcoming game with Barnsley.

Taking to Twitter, some Owls supporters aren’t convinced by his response.

On the field, Wednesday have a huge game this weekend against Yorkshire rivals Barnsley.

The Owls are bottom of the Championship table, having picked up just three points from Tony Pulis’s six games in charge following his arrival as new manager.

A lack of goals is a huge problem. Pulis has made no secret of his desire to bolster his attacking options in the transfer window with a new striker and winger a priority.

Barnsley head into the clash at Hillsborough coming off the back of a win over Wycombe Wanderers. The Tykes are 13 points ahead of the Owls in 16th spot.
