Exclusive: Palmer worried Moore faces Pulis problem at Sheffield Wednesday

Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, Carlton Palmer has warned that Darren Moore could face a similar problem to Tony Pulis following his recent appointment as Sheffield Wednesday manager.

Moore arrives as a permanent successor to Pulis, who was dismissed at the end of last December before Neil Thompson stepped in on a caretaker basis, and will now be tasked with ending Wednesday’s bad run of form as they battle to stay in the Championship.

The Owls currently sit in 23rd and have lost their last four games in English football’s second tier, leaving Moore with a lot of work to do.

For former Wednesday player Palmer, Moore faces a tough challenge, with the retired midfielder suggesting the squad is not good enough, an issue that Pulis also had to deal with.

Palmer exclusively told FFC:

“They were 2-0 up against Luton and they ended up losing the game. I’m not too sure that the squad of players are good enough. And it’s a difficult one now because it’s after the transfer window, so there’s little he [Moore] can do. I think that was the problem with Tony Pulis [as well].”

With the transfer window closed, Moore will have no choice but to work with what he has got.

The now-former Doncaster Rovers manager comes in at a time where there are still a lot of games left, though, potentially giving him the chance to experiment as he looks for a winning formula.

And given Wednesday’s dire run of form, it may be worth trying different things and different players.
