Some Sheffield Wednesday fans have slammed manager Garry Monk for his comments following the club’s 5-0 loss to Blackburn Rovers in the Championship.
The club recent loss to Rovers left them tenth in the Championship and dented their hopes for promotion this season. After the game, Monk talked about taking criticism ‘on the chin’ and to come ‘fighting back’ from the defeat against Lewis Holtby’s side. Monk also went onto say that he is confident the club can turn things around.
Sheffield Wednesday fans: Can Monk say anything else?
He's clueless, he always says the same
What else can he even say?
The club’s social media team posted Monk’s comments and it left many Owls fans angry. And they made their opinions very clear.

Not ‘Ive got full belief that’s what we’ll do’ but ‘We will come out fighting’

Sheffield Wednesday have won only a single game out of their last five outings, having lost to Hull, Stoke City and even Cardiff. The only win in their last five outings came against promotion hopefuls Leeds United.
The club has scored 39 goals in the Championship so far this season and that is the tenth-best tally in the division so far. But defensively, the club has let in only 31 goals so far and that is the fifth-best record in the Championship this season.
What do we think?
It is fair to understand why the fans won’t be happy with Monk’s comments. The last time the club two games in a row was back in early December and the form has dipped since then. The atmosphere would certainly be damp. But there is nothing else Monk can say.
