Dom Howson spent some time talking about Sheffield Wednesday and their hunt for a new manager during the most recent edition of Owls-focused podcast Singing The Blues

The Owls are now without a permanent manager since 28th December when Tony Pulis was sacked after guiding the Yorkshire club to just one win in 10 league games following his November appointment, with academy manager Neil Thompson currently in charge of the first team in a caretaker role.

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?

One manager that has been linked with the Hillsborough hotseat is former Huddersfield Town boss Danny Cowley, who praised Tony Pulis and indicated that he felt the 62-year-old would be a valuable asset for the Owls in the January transfer window last month before the manager was sacked days prior to the transfer window beginning. 

Howson poured cold water on the Cowley to Hillsborough rumours during this podcast, as he declared: “That’s not going to happen, I don’t think.”

TIF Thoughts on what Howson said about Cowley…

There may be some substance to the reports claiming Cowley is a target of Sheffield Wednesday, given that the 42-year-old has revealed that he was on their radar in the past, holding talks with the Owls before taking charge of Huddersfield Town, his last club, in September 2019, the same month as Garry Monk became Wednesday boss

Would Cowley be a good appointment for Wednesday?

YES

YES

NO

NO

However, given that Cowley is said to have reservations about working with Owls owner and chairman Dejphon Chansiri and the former Terriers man recently described the Sheffield Wednesday job as “a huge challenge,” perhaps it’s not a major surprise that Howson has effectively ruled him out of the running, as it would appear as though there are plenty of signs suggesting that he is unlikely to join Wednesday.
