Sheffield Wednesday fans slam Joey Pelupessy for display in Millwall stalemate

Sheffield Wednesday’s poor league form continued on Saturday afternoon as the Owls fought out a 0-0 stalemate at Hillsborough.

Garry Monk’s side have now won just one of their last seven matches with their draw against Millwall being the fourth point picked up from a possible 21.

Neither team overly tested the opposition goalkeeper as there was only a total of four shots on target throughout the entire tie, but with the 40-year-old bolstering his squad with a pair of Deadline Day additions, positive times could be ahead.

Should Joey Pelupessy be handed a new contract?

Yes

No

No

However, that may not be the case for Owls central midfielder Joey Pelupessy, who has been hammered on social media for his performance, putting doubt on his future in south Yorkshire as his contract expires this summer.

Here’s what the fans have been saying…

The general consensus on the 26-year-old was negative with an array of strong phrases being used to describe his performance, including “waste of a shirt,” “league one player,” and “out of his depth.”

Pelupessy has started back-to-back league matches now, leading to one fan also criticising Monk for making such a decision by suggesting that he has lost the plot.

The Dutchman has been in the squad above the long-serving Sam Hutchinson, which has caused many question marks over who is the better option in midfield.

A couple were on Pelupessy’s side as one member of the Hillsborough faithful questioned when Hutchinson last had a decent game while another brandished him as “injury prone.”

However, a further supporter said Pelupessy was nowhere near the 30-year-old’s ability and that he was way out of his depth.

Others added weight to this argument by looking at other members of the squad – one would rather Alex Hunt play instead, while a list of players were named who also have had far too many chances to prove their worth.

And finally, some fans referenced ex-manager Jos Luhukay’s previous decisions to drop Hutchinson for Pelupessy when he was in charge, suggesting that there was a recurring theme that has been unearthed by Monk.

The Owls have a chance to shake things up against Barnsley next weekend as both striker Connor Wickham and attacking midfielder Josh Windass will be available for selection having joined on the last day of the transfer window.
