Former Sheffield Wednesday star Carlton Palmer believes it will take time for Darren Moore to get his philosophy across to the players.
The Owls find themselves ninth in the League One table on 21 points, just three points outside of the play-off positions and nine points off top of the league, which is currently occupied by Plymouth Argyle.
Have you been impressed with Sheffield Wednesday so far this season?
Moore’s side are unbeaten in their last four league matches, winning one and drawing three. And Palmer believes it will take time for him to get his philosophy across, especially after making significant changes to his squad, comparing the situation to Mikel Arteta’s at Arsenal.
“It’s difficult. Like I’ve said before, he’s cleared out and taken an entire new squad on, similar to what Mikel Arteta has done. So, it takes time for those players to understand the way that you want to play. It takes time for you to get the right system, your philosophies over,” Palmer told This is Futbol.
Following relegation from the Championship last term, Darren Moore has looked to overhaul his side and bring in his own players, with fourteen new signings arriving at Hillsborough this summer.
One of the new signings during the transfer window was goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell, who has five clean sheets to his name so far this term (four in the league and one in the Carabao Cup), with Sheffield Wednesday fourth highest in regards to the number of clean sheets they have kept this season in League One.
With five to their name, they do appear to be building a solid foundation at the back.
