Owls Blogger and Sky Sports fan zone SWFC blogger Carl Mullooly returns to for the final game of the Owls 2011-12 season and looks at what could be a tense day on Saturday.

"If you would have told me 2 weeks ago we would go into the final game of the season favourites for automatic promotion I wouldn’t have believed you. Three things happened shortly after my last blog, which I believe shifted the momentum from red to blue in the steel city.

We welcome a new blogger to the Wednesdayite fold in the glorious shape of Daniel Burkinshaw. Daniel is a season ticket holder on the Kop and attended his first game in April 1981, a 4-1 home victory over Cambridge United.
His favourite Wednesday goal ever used to be Danny Wilson's against Chelsea in the 1991 semi-final at Hillsborough but after Danny's most recent career move Dan hopes that there will be a good candidate in the Wycombe game next week - preferably early on, to calm the nerves!

Daniel sent us his thoughts about Wednesday supremo Dave Jones - thanks Dan, and read on! 

Owls Blog - A Bridge Too Far?

Owls Blogger and Sky Sports fan zone SWFC blogger Carl Mullooly returns to with his blog for April and talks about the incredible season end in prospect.

"Three games to go in the season and we are reliant on other teams if we want to secure automatic promotion.  It’s a bitter pill to swallow with our neighbours sitting in pole position, but you have to give credit where it is due.  Despite intense pressure from us winning some difficult games, often played before United, they have matched or bettered our results and unfortunately Ched Evans continued his prolific goal scoring form until recent events took over.

"If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too"

She has a commercial pilots licence, two Springer Spaniels who go wild if you say 'Sheffield Wednesday' and she loves Chris Waddle with all her heart.

Owls Blogger and Sky Sports fan zone SWFC blogger Carl Mullooly returns to with his blog for March and talks about the comings and goings at Hillsborough recently.

"I remember writing a blog just over a year ago, wondering whether Gary Megson was going to be a long term appointment. On Wednesday 29th February 2012 I got my answer. Initially I was shocked, but can’t say I was overly disappointed. I didn’t really want Megson in the first instance, but as with any other manager I supported him, and he did bring lots of qualities to the club. He’s gone out on a high winning the derby and will be fondly remembered by many, and the only other manager in recent history who falls into that bracket is Paul Sturrock…who won a play off final!
