Sheffield Wednesday fans fume at Adam Reach’s post-match comments

Sheffield Wednesday faced an almighty thrashing at the weekend as they were knocked back by Blackburn Rovers at Hillsborough.

The Owls’ afternoon took a turn for the worst after Massimo Luongo dubiously received his marching orders in the 23rd minute before they capitulated in front of the home crowd, losing 5-0 by full-time.

Following the match, winger Adam Reach was the only player to front the media but his comments have gone down like a lead balloon.

Is Adam Reach good enough for the Owls?

Yes

Yes

No

No

He said: “It’s a blip. We started poorly, conceded a goal and lost a man and then we couldn’t really come back from that. But I would like to think they weren’t booing or having negative thoughts over commitment and desire because I thought we all showed that and worked hard over the 90 minutes. We never gave up. It just wasn’t our day.”

To which fans have responded…

Several supporters have taken a swipe at the team as a whole – one questioned where the captain was, claiming his influence in the dressing room must be very good as he looks far from being a leader on the pitch.

Another labelled Reach’s comments “ludicrous” while one more said the side looked like “relegation fodder.”

Others responded directly at the 26-year-old by telling him to “shut up” with a further member of the Owls faithful suggesting that he gave up on the pitch.

Some fans took it a step further and offered direct criticism at Reach.

One member of the home crowd said he’s only worthy of being an occasional substitute in this time while another added that he should be the first out the door as he has a “heart like a pea”.

Reach has assisted the second-most number of goals in the Owls squad this season with six, only bettered by Barry Bannan’s seven, per WhoScored.
