Wednesday’s latest signing Callum McManaman feels the atmosphere at S6 has made an instant impression.
The 25-year-old wideman joined the Owls on a half-season loan from West Brom and swiftly made his Championship bow at H illsborough last week against Wolves.
He is eligible to feature in the FA Cup on Sunday when Carlos Carvalhal takes his side to face Middlesbrough on Teesside.
McManaman said: “It’s gone quite quick, but I have enjoyed it.
“It was very special against Wolves. The atmosphere was very good as well. It was a sell-out for us – 30,000 fans. I am not used to that as a home support.
“I could see straight away that there’s a great spirit amongst the lads here.
“It’s not often you get the lads meeting up after training and things but that happens here and it’s a big positive.
“I’ve also been really impressed with the manager and hopefully I will do well here and see where we go from there.”
The ex-Wigan man further lauded his new team mates, who have lost just once in the last nine, saying: “The dressing room morale is great. I’d say it’s the team spirit that makes this group stand out.”
Wednesday tackle Boro in the third round of the cup, and McManaman – himself an FA Cup winner with Wigan in 2013 - explained his best approach to the competition:
“You have got to take every game one-by-one.
“You go into every game and give your all and as everyone knows, anything can happen in the FA Cup.
“It’s no good looking too far ahead to the later rounds, let’s take one game at a time and hopefully we can do well.”
