Time to work!

3 September 2021

To say the Owls had a busy summer transfer window would be somewhat of an understatement.

The signing of striker Saido Berahino on deadline day capped an eventful period of change at the club.

Darren Moore is delighted with the business Wednesday have been able to complete from the opening of the window in July right through until the last day of August.

The fresh faces in the squad have hit the ground running and the Owls can reflect on a positive first month of the season.

In terms of the next stages now, with the window slammed shut, the manager is keen to get the work into the squad to build those relationships on the pitch.


“I’m very pleased in terms of the work that we’ve done,” Moore said.

“Now we need to settle everyone down and get some work done really. We need to build that understanding and consistency and that’s why I’m so pleased to have the opportunity this week and next week to work.

“It has been a rebuild here, let’s make no mistake about it in terms of the players we have brought in.”

A fixture-free weekend due to international call-ups will provide the gaffer with that extra time on the training pitches.


Wednesday are next in action a week on Saturday at Plymouth, where the team will be backed by a capacity following of 1,700.

The boss added: “Given the volume of players we have brought it, it is a complete rebuild.

“We want to build a team that has got balance to it which I feel we have done and now it’s just settling them down and getting the work done.

“We need that time to get the players blending as a unit, the whole team, player-to-player combinations and as long as we keep working how we are and giving the commitment and endeavour, then we can always work with that.”
