Sheffield Wednesday suffered another demoralising defeat in the English Championship on Saturday, this time losing heavily away to play-off hopefuls Bristol City.
The Owls have lost their last four in all competitions and have picked up just one league win since Jos Luhukay took charge of the club in the wake of Carlos Carvalhal’s departure.
Wednesday have been blighted by injuries, but even recognising that, fans are growing frustrated with his management of the club already and are questioning the future direction under the Dutchman.
With 11 matches before the end of the season, Luhukay’s side risk being dragged into a relegation dogfight, just seven points ahead of the Championship drop zone.
While League 1 football next season is still a remote possibility, fans are growing concerned by worsening form and results rather than anything improving, believing Luhukay might be the wrong man in charge.
They took to Twitter to discuss his start as manager after Saturday’s result…
Luhukay may only be one part of the situation and I don’t doubt he’s working in line with how he sees it, but did he bring a freshness and a surge of confidence, a new positivity and energy in the team? Did we get some ‘new manager effect’ wins? Even a few goals? No to all. #swfc

If Jos luhukay is the answer then what on earth was the question.

Luhukay is a fraud. Get him on first plane to Germany. Don't give me this "he's been left with nothing" rubbish cos I've seen worse teams perform better.

Luhukay out. And yes I'm serious. #swfc

Is it safe to say the Jos Luhukay appointment was poor? Bar Derby, and United away, what has he got right? I get we should only judge him once all the fit players are back, but is there enough evidence that we can trust him with a fully fit squad? We're so negative! #swfc

For christ sake why doesn't Jos Luhukay sit in the stands cos he does f__k all when stood in the technical area then he would get a better view of how bad were playing.

Didn't get the appointment of Jos Luhukay when it happened, and still don't get it now. Wednesday would have been better off going for Nigel Pearson or bringing back Gary Megson.
