Sheffield Wednesday journalist Nancy Frostick has been sharing some details on the Yorkshire club&8217;s recent appointment of Darren Moore their new manager. 

This comes after Frostick recently made an appearance on the latest episode of The Totally Football League Show where she spoke about a number of topics concerning the Owls.

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

On the topic of Moore’s recent appointment and whether or not he was the club’s number-one choice to take charge, Frostick had this to say on the matter.

He said: “As far as I’m aware, Wednesday were kind of interested. I think he was on various versions of a shortlist that they had in early January after Tony Pulis got sacked.

“I think he’s a very positive appointment and both Wednesday fans and people associated with the club seem very excited and see this as a positive thing, so quite where he fell on their list I don’t know, but I don’t know if it was a particularly targeted search at the time, just the nature of how things unfolded with Tony Pulis going.”

Moore is now the Championship club’s third permanent manager of the season, with Tony Pulis having lasted only seven weeks after succeeding Garry Monk in November.

Moore joined Wednesday from League One side where he took charge of 77 matches, winning 36, drawing 14 and losing 27 along the way (per Transfermarkt).

Are you pleased by Moore's appointment?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Taking into account his fairly mixed record with Doncaster in League One, it seems to us like a bit of a risk hiring Moore and giving him the task of trying to guide Wednesday out of the relegation zone where they currently sit – though he does have experience in the second tier having guided West Bromwich Albion towards a promotion push in the 2018/19 season.

With Wednesday set to take on Rotherham United in midweek, who are currently one place and one point above the Owls in the league table, if Moore can get his tenure at the club off with a win, this would be a great boost for the club.
