    WEDNESDAYITE WEEKLY

    KEEPING THE BANDWAGON ROLLING


    EDDIEtorial

    Well, it's not been a bad week, has it? Getting an unusual-for-the-Owls last-minute win away at the Valley has certainly kept us all buzzing through the last seven days - sometimes in a season you just need that ball to break your way and the whole picture changes - and we're finally back up on the coat-tails of the large group of lower-mid-table teams in this division.

    Of course, the most important thing now is to maintain our excellent form in two upcoming home games - for two reasons. Firstly, the teams immediately ahead of us are all in indifferent form - so wins could quickly push us up to the safety of 14th or 15th in the table. And secondly, those pesky scrappers below us are finding ways to win as well, with both the Dingles and Brizzle finding unlikely wins in the week to trim our safety net to four points.

    But what better fillip than a transfer window closing with the Owls keeping our key players, and grabbing the excellent and still-improving Jeremy Helan on loan for the rest of the term. With a settled side - especially in the back five, we have a great opportunity to push on and show what we can do in two tricky-but-winnable home games against Brighton and Derby the next two Saturdays. On paper, the Seagulls will represent the tougher test, but they've not been able to beat strugglers Blackburn and Birmingham in their last two games, so if we set the tempo and dictate, we can start right and take the three points.

    I hope to see you at Hillsborough tomorrow!

    Up The Owls!

    Eddie




    MATCH BLOG: CHARLTON


    MATCH BLOG

    Armchair Blogger Matt Savage returns, this time with 0% interest free credit on his new three-seater...

    "With postponements up and down the country playing havoc with the football fixtures, Charlton enlisted the help of their supporters to clear the ice and snow from The Valley to ensure the match with Sheffield Wednesday would go ahead. Last seasons nPower League One champions and runners-up face off with the hosts taking to life in the higher division easier than the visitors - sitting comfortably in mid table whilst Wednesday languish just outside the relegation zone...
    The referees opening whistle has barely left his lips when the first free-kick of the game is awarded, Charlton's Yann Kermorgant fouling Miguel Llera deep inside the Wednesday half. An early Michail Antonio cross just evades the on-rushing Kieran Lee as the Owls start brightly. The travelling fans almost have an early goal to cheer when after 4mins Jermaine Johnson rattled a shot towards goal - only for defender Matt Taylor to block and before a follow-up shot can be fired Giles Cole is penalised for a foul on Dale Stephens. The Wednesday midfielder is shown the games first yellow just a minute later and will now have to be careful for 85mins. Charlton are first to test a keeper, a Scott Wagstaff effort from 25 yards comfortably saved by Chris Kirkland. The home side look dangerous on attack and a Stephens cross causes alarm when Kermorgant connects and fires his shot just wide.

    20mins in and Antonio teases his marker before sending a cross into the box and ex-Owl Michael Morrison clears the ball for a Wednesday corner. Debutant loanee Danny Pugh takes the set-piece and Anthony Gardner is first to it - heading the ball goal-ward and forcing Ben Hamer into a brilliant save before the ball is cleared off the line. The 27th minute sees a chance go begging for Charlton when a whipped Wagstaff cross finds Cedric Evina in the box, the Cameroonian falls in the box and the referee allows play to continue letting Gardner clear. After seeing a handful of his crosses not met by a Wednesday player, Antonio takes his own chance on the 31st min - Coke laying the ball off and Antonio's shot flying wide of the right hand post. When Lewis Buxton is adjudged to have fouled Wagstaff, Charlton pack the area but Stephens set-piece is met by the towering Gardner."

    COGBA AND REYNOLDS EXIT S6

    With the Owls striker situation looking like there's only one place up for grabs maximum in Dave Jones' set up, and both Antonio and JJ seen as better attacking options than Chris O'Grady, the Owls marksman has left S6 and joined our rivals Barnsley on loan. While he scored goals earlier this season, he never looked like the answer in the Championship - we can only hope that he doesn't make us eat our words by firing Barnsley up the table now!

    Meanwhile, forgotten man Dave Reynolds (is it Dave or Mark? I'm not really bothered to be honest) has also been released by mutual consent. He's undoubtably going to do his stuff (whatever that may be) over the border in the SPL. Good luck everybody...

    MILLWALL GAME POSTPONED

    With our opponents in two weeks' time being involved in FA Cup action, there will be no Saturday match for the Owls on the 16th. It will now be a midweek evening - the perfect away day for Owls fans everywhere :(
