Sheffield Wednesday fans slate George Boyd after performance vs Wolves

Sheffield Wednesday fell to a 2-0 defeat to Premier League new boys Wolves in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday evening and fans of the Owls on Twitter were not happy with George Boyd’s performance.

The sides were level until the second half but Leo Bonatini eventually broke the deadlock after 53 minutes, turning in new signing Adama Traore’s cross. Then, with just five minutes remaining, Helder Costa was brought down in the box by Owls defender Morgan Fox and the Wolves forward stepped up to put the result beyond doubt from the penalty spot.

Wednesday boss Jos Luhukay changed his entire starting XI after the weekend’s 2-1 win over Ipswich and he paid the price with defeat, with Boyd in particular coming in for criticism from fans.

The 32-year-old ex-Peterborough and Hull winger joined Wednesday from Burnley on a free transfer in the summer of 2017 but only managed three goals and one assist in 25 games in all competitions last season.
