It’s been a roller coaster of a season for Sheffield Wednesday fans.
A lot has gone wrong during that time, but perhaps the biggest thing to note is the fact that Keiren Westwood has been frozen out of the squad.
Indeed, the goalie hasn’t appeared for the Owls since late November when the Yorkshire club squared off against West Brom, and after that game a number of fans called for him to be dropped.
Westwood straight down the tunnel at the end doesn’t even clap the away fans, Bannan telling him to come over. Quicker Westwood is out the 11 and out the club the better. Trouble making behind the scenes #swfc

#swfc how long do we keep playing Westwood when he’s starting to cost us more and more goals. Never thought I’d say it but Dawson is the better keeper now, Westy is past it

They got their wish, but they can’t be too happy about how that has turned out for them.
Westwood has addressed his situation on social media, and it looks as though he won’t play for the club again, and a number of fans reacted to that post by calling for him to be re-instated as Garry Monk’s number one.
Westwood’s exclusion has been made even worse by the fact that Dawson has been terrible lately, getting slammed by fans after his dreadful performance in the Owls’ 5-0 loss to Brentford.
Perhaps this backing of the 35-year-old lately is down to nostalgia, after all, he was the club’s Player of the Season in 2017, but even if that is the case, a number of Owls fans need to be careful what they wish for in the future as this plea to see Westwood dropped has seemingly caused more harm than good at Hillsborough.
