Owls Blog - Thoughts from the Bolton Defeat

24 September 2012
Owls BlogOwls Blog

Following the Owls fourth defeat in a row this weekend against Bolton Wanderers Owls blogger Matt Grant returns to  Wednesdayite.com with his thoughts from the Bolton defeat "A work in progress, no need to panic."

"The Championship is said to be the 6th richest league in Europe, I’m assuming not that far behind The Bundesliga, Serie A and Primeria Liga. And maybe if last season’s performance of clubs promoted to the top tier, where all three survived relegations, is repeated this season then we could say the gap is perhaps gradually closing on The Premiership (and its near equivalent, La Liga).

This week Owls blogger Joe Crawthorn has written a very personal blog which is 'In Loving Memory' and that he wants to share with Owls fans.  

"An event happened in my life this week that sums up just what it is to be a Sheffield Wednesday fan.
