Barry Bannan absent as Sheffield Wednesday’s poor form continues

The Owls have had a remarkable summer, with Darren Moore having left the club despite guiding the club back to the Championship.


Owner Dejphon Chansiri has come in for fierce criticism from the supporters, and he responded by vowing not to put more money into the club in the build-up to the Sunderland fixture.

The negative mood around Hillsborough didn’t change as the side were two down inside eight minutes, with the Black Cats making it three before the break, which is how the game finished.


There was also bad news for Wednesday in the team news, as Bannan was surprisingly not involved.


And, providing an update on the Scotsman, Munoz told the club’s media that the midfielder could be back for the trip to The Hawthorns in the week.


“He has a little injury and cannot play, this is a big moment because he is the captain. We hope to have him back for the next game.”How big a blow is this for Sheffield Wednesday?

You only had to watch Wednesday against Sunderland to see how much they missed Bannan, although it’s not like results have been much better with him in the team.


Nevertheless, they lacked leadership and control last night, which is why they had conceded twice in eight minutes, leaving them with a massive task, and it was game over by the half hour mark.


Bannan may not have changed the outcome, but you would think that he would have brought a bit more quality to the side in terms of keeping possession, and his experience would have been useful on a night like that.
