Owls Blogger and Sky Sports fan zone SWFC blogger Carl Mullooly returns to with his blog for February and looks at the Owls recent form.

"I try not to be negative about the team and tend to look for the positives, but at the moment I’m struggling to come to terms with our current form and performances. I’ve had some thoughts about why we have suffered a down turn in form which I wanted to put down. In saying all this, we are still in a decent position and by no means out of the automatic promotion picture, but I think we need a swift upturn in form and in the back of my mind I really hope we don’t face a battle to make the play offs.

We welcome back Glyn Thornhill to for his second appearance of the season as an Owls Blogger.  We'll hand straight over to Glyn to talk about all of the Owls burning issues as the January transfer window comes to a close. 

"Never a dull moment at S6 these days is there. What with our illustrious Chairman having to fend off allegations from HMRC to the unbelievable injury time allowances from a certain referee Mr Deadman - (who again left us infuriated) at Blackpool on Saturday in injury time – Owls must have upset this referee somewhere in his past performances.

We welcome back Owls blogger Jake Carr with his second blogging appearance of the season on  Jake is the self professed 'Out of Town Owl' and gives his view of the Owls v Blackpool FA Cup game.

"I tell a lie, I don't particularly like to live beside the seaside, and who would if your local team was Blackpool. Alright they're a half decent team, but it is their fans that lead them to shame. As I’m from the Fylde coast the only possible way to watch, what Blackpool fans were describing as "The MASSIVE Wednesday." (They said it not me) was to take my seat in their home stand.

The Sheffield Wednesday Supporters' Society functioning under the name of 'The Owls Trust' is set up. At the time, Sheffield Wednesday club directors Dave Allen, Keith Addy and Geoff Hulley bought an amount of shares in the club equal to 36.7% of the total share capital of Sheffield Wednesday PLC, from investment company Charterhouse. The purchase of more than 29.9% of any company triggers a mandatory bid for the remaining shares in company law, however to avoid making such a bid, a portion of those shares equal to 9.46% of Sheffield Wednesday PLC were donated to the fledgling fans' trust.

The organisation angered then chairman of Sheffield Wednesday, Dave Allen, as well as many Wednesday fans, by being perceived to support a takeover bid by Ken Bates. However, the organisation - in particular its chief executive John Hemmingham and chairman Jim Harrison - maintained that it was not supporting a takeover, but was supporting the principle of allowing potential investors, including Ken Bates, access to relevant documents in order to formulate an educated bid for the company. This feud resulted in the trust being evicted from their offices in Hillsborough.
