‘I’m worried; Saving face’: Some Owls fans respond to Darren Moore’s verdict on display vs Norwich

Some Sheffield Wednesday supporters have taken to Twitter to respond to manager Darren Moore’s verdict following the Owls’ 2-1 home defeat to Norwich City.

The Owls were beaten by the Championship leaders following a second half turnaround.

Speaking to reporters after the game, Moore claimed his side went toe-to-toe with Norwich.


But his verdict of Wednesday putting in a good performance promoted some worried responses from Owls fans who sense a Déjà vu following numerous games this season.

Wednesday have now lost seven Championship games in succession.

The hope for a new-manager bounce following Darren Moore’s arrival hasn’t happened, and the Owls are now seven points from safety with games running out.

The performances haven’t been too bad. But the lack of goal threat has been an issue all season, while injuries to key players such as Dominic Iorfa have left them short.

Wednesday’s next encounter is at home to Huddersfield Town. It’s a must-win game for the Owls as back-to-back away games at top six opponents Barnsley and Watford follow.

Fellow relegation rivals Birmingham City, meanwhile, are on the lookout for a new manager ahead of their game against Reading after the dismissal of Aitor Karanka.
