It has been a truly wretched start to the season for Sheffield Wednesday. The Owls have lost all four of their Championship matches and were dumped out of the Carabao Cup by League Two side Mansfield Town on penalties.
With Wednesday currently bottom of the Championship, the pressure is mounting on boss Xisco Munoz to rectify their form. Their last match before the two-week international break? A daunting trip to Elland Road to take on promotion favourites Leeds United.
Yorkshire Live recently conducted a poll asking Wednesdayites to give their thoughts on the club’s start to the season. Around 1,100 fans took part, with 36 per cent of respondents saying they are worried by the club’s league position. Twenty eight per cent believe the club are in turmoil while 22 per cent reckon they will turn things around.
When asked who is at fault for the slow start, Owls fans pointed the finger of blame at Dejphon Chansiri. Some supporters aimed a chant in protest at the Wednesday owner following their 2-1 defeat at Cardiff City last weekend. The Thai businessman has so far sanctioned 10 summer signings and the Owls are in the market for more new faces before the transfer window closes tomorrow night.

Thirty eight per cent of respondents feel Chansiri is to blame for the Owls making a sluggish start, 32 per cent think it is no-one’s fault and a further 25 per cent believe it is down to Munoz. The players only received five per cent of the votes.
