Some Sheffield Wednesday fans have been left fuming at a video involving Lewis Holtby from the club’s recent 5-0 loss to Blackburn Rovers in the Championship.

The Owls lost the game 5-0 and it saw Garry Monk’s men slipped to the tenth spot in the Championship, because of that. Holtby got a brace, while Sam Gallagher also got a goal. An own goal from Cameron Dawson made it worse, while Darragh Lenihan also netted one of his own as well.

SWFC fans: Was there any contact with Holtby?

Ban him, he's a cheat

Leave it, we've seen worse

A video involving Holtby though went viral. The former Tottenham man hit the floor in the video and Owls fans aren’t happy with his behaviour. A Wednesday fan called Chris Robinson posted the video and Owls fans made their opinions clear.

Wednesday’s recent league form hasn’t quite been too impressive. They have won just a single game of the last five outings and that win came away from home against Leeds United last weekend.

The club has now lost as many as ten Championship games this season. They are yet to win three games in a row even once this season. Their best run came in December when they were unbeaten in six games and had won four, drawing two.

As for Holtby, the German has made 16 appearances in all competitions for the Rovers this season. He has racked up a tally of three goals and two assists.

What do we think?

The video doesn’t exactly show any contact with Holtby, who went down in a rather comical manner despite the win. But having said that, we have seen worse than that. Whether the FA decide to take any action, as some of the Sheffield Wednesday fans appear to call for, remains to be seen.
