Opposition Viewpoint – Sheffield Wednesday

A bit about you:

Name: Tom Scott

Current home town:  Sheffield

Birthplace: York

How long have you supported your team? All my life

Overview of your club:

Favourite thing about your home ground: It is unique and absolutely full of character. There are fewer and fewer grounds like it left, and the day all grounds are standard bowls is a sad day.

Favourite match played by your team & why: You would be hard-pressed to better the play off come back from 4-0 down last season—an incredible night with an unbelievable atmosphere.

Favourite player of all time who played for your club: The first player I can remember wanting to watch was Niclas Alexandersson.

About our forthcoming match against you:

Your favourite current player in your squad and why? Right now, I’d give to Barry Bannan, I think he’s been here so long we’ve forgotten how lucky we are to have him.

Player in your squad we should most fear and why? I’m not sure you should be scared of any of them. Musaba might give you a hard time if he’s on his game.

Player in our squad you most fear and why? Vardy, because the laws of football say he will score at Hillsborough.

Up and coming prospect in your squad? Most would say Bailey Cadamarteri, but there is also Pierce Charles a young GK.

Where do you think you’ll finish this season? 22nd

How do you think you’ll do against us? Heart says 2-1 Owls, head says we’d be lucky to keep it to 3 against.
