Sheffield Wednesday podcaster Justin DeSorgher from the Owls Americast podcast appeared on the latest edition of Derby County podcast The Rams Review to discuss all of the latest Sheffield Wednesday news following the sacking of Tony Pulis earlier this week. 

One of the topics that DeSorgher discussed during the show was Wednesday chairman Dejphon Chansiri’s task of replacing Pulis at Hillsborough and the podcaster urged Chansiri to consider bringing ex-Owls player and current Plymouth Argyle boss Ryan Lowe back to the Yorkshire club as manager.

An easy one to kick off our quiz on the 2020 summer transfer window in the EFL, which player left Birmingham City to join Borussia Dortmund?

He said: (15:21) “I really loved the idea of bringing in Ryan Lowe, who’s an ex-Wednesday player – he also has played some pretty progressive football, has won some promotions from lower leagues. 

“At this point, I would almost rather just start over everything, burn the whole thing to the ground and start building up behind somebody young and progressive.”

Should Wednesday appoint Lowe?

TIF Thoughts on what DeSorgher had to say about Lowe…

Lowe, who has been in charge of Plymouth Argyle since the summer of 2019, revealed earlier this year in an interview with The Sheffield Star that he would “love to manage Sheffield Wednesday” at some point in the future. 

The 42-year-old, who has received praise from 2019/20 Premier League-winning Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, has already enjoyed some success in his young managerial career, as he overcame fierce off-the-field issues to guide Bury to promotion from League Two to League One in his only season at the club and helped his current club, Plymouth, to get promoted to League One from League Two last season

With all of that in mind, it may be understandable why DeSorgher would be in favour of Lowe taking the reins at Hillsborough, while it may also be fair to call the 42-year-old a potentially realistic option, given that he’s previously indicated that he’d love to be the Owls boss one day. 

As a result, perhaps Chansiri should consider approaching Plymouth about Lowe, as his experience of overcoming off-the-field issues to deliver results may well be handy for the position, given that off-the-field issues have also been touted as a major issue for Wednesday of late.
