Sheffield Wednesday fans endured the agony of losing to local rivals Sheffield United in yesterday’s Steel City Derby. The Blades ran out 4-2 winners at Hillsborough thanks to goals from John Fleck, Mark Duffy and former Wednesday player Leon Clarke bagged a brace.
After the fulltime whistle some Sheffield Wednesday fans thought that it was the end for manager Carlos Carvalhal, venting their frustrations and anger on fans forum sites.
Carvalhal took Sheffield Wednesday to the playoff semi-finals last season, but defeat against Huddersfield Town meant that they would have to endure another season of Championship football.
The Owls have started the season with just 3 victories in their opening 9 matches and currently lie in 10th place in the league table, 5 points behind rivals Sheffield United who are currently flying high in 3rd.
There were calls for the Portuguese manager to go following the playoff defeat last season, but the club came out and announced that he would be staying on as manager, and they backed their man this summer allowing him to bring in the likes of George Boyd, Joost Van Aken, and Jacob Butterfield, in hope that they would be the men to guide the club out of the Championship and back to the Premier League.
Even though there have only been 9 games of the league campaign and some football fans will say it’s far too early to be thinking about sacking a manager, some sections of the Hillsborough faithful thought yesterday was enough and want to see a change at the helm.
