London (AFP) – A late Fernando Forestieri goal condemned Roberto di Matteo’s Aston Villa to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Sheffield Wednesday in their Championship opener on Sunday. The defeat — which was watched from the directors box by Villa’s Chinese owner Tony Xia — provided an early warning to Champions League winning manager Di Matteo that returning Villa to the top tier immediately is not going to be easy. Di Matteo’s fellow Champions League winning manager Rafael Benitez had also experienced defeat with his title favourites Newcastle losing to Fulham on Friday, a result the Spaniard said ...

Di Matteo out to clip Owls’ wings on Villa debut

London (AFP) – Roberto di Matteo has reached the heady heights of winning the Champions League as a manager but on Sunday he hopes for something rather more mundane: winning his first game in charge of Aston Villa. The 46-year-old Swiss born former Italian international — who won the 2012 Champions League when in charge of Chelsea — takes Chinese-owned Villa to Sheffield Wednesday in the second tier Championship on Sunday.

Sheffield Wednesday sail through to play-off final

London (AFP) – Sheffield Wednesday cruised through to the Championship play-off final after drawing 1-1 at Brighton on Monday to secure a 3-1 aggregate victory. Carlos Carvalhal’s side are one step away from a lucrative place in the Premier League thanks to a combative display in the semi-final second leg at the Amex Stadium. Leading 2-0 from Friday’s first leg in Yorkshire, the visitors fell behind to Lewis Dunk’s early goal but quickly equalised through a Ross Wallace cross that crept in at the far post. That was all the incentive Wednesday needed and, despite finishing 15 points behind Brighton ... Read more

Sheffield Wednesday 3-0 Arsenal: Owls see off sorry Gunners with Capital One Cup success

Arsenal were unceremoniously dumped out of the Capital One Cup on a damaging night as Sheffield Wednesday blew them away with a stunning 3-0 victory at Hillsborough. The Gunners, who beat Bayern Munich in the Champions League and Everton to briefly go top of the Barclays Premier League in the last seven days, were brought back down to earth by the Sky Bet Championship outfit, who deservedly progressed to the quarter-finals for the first time since 2002 thanks to goals from Ross Wallace, Lucas Joao and Sam Hutchinson. It means that Arsene Wenger's wait for a first League Cup of ... Read more

Sheffield Wednesday supporters feeling optimistic ahead of new season

  The term “Sleeping Giant” is an overused cliché often used for clubs who have fallen on hard times, whose better days are a distant memory or highlight footage that is only available in black and white. The Football League is littered with clubs who at one point or another dominated English football. Leeds United, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Nottingham Forest and Sheffield United are four of the biggest clubs outside of the top flight, alongside Sheffield Wednesday. All five have failed to maintain Premier League soccer since 1992, despite Leeds, Forest, United and Wednesday all being part of that debut season. ... Read more
