Cottagers Confidential: The season has just started, but Wednesday are already near the bottom with a negative goal differential and coming off two straight 3-1 defeats. Do you expect the club to turn it around? Where do you think they finish this season?
Yes We Crann: I do think we can turn things around, yeah. We signed a helluva lot of new players in the transfer window and there’s a lot of gelling to be done before I we get close to being the finished article. Carlos Carvalhal hasn’t been too consistent with his starting XIs, but now the main window is shut it should become a bit more steady. I think with the squad we have we could genuinely push for playoffs if things start to click, but unfortunately right now it’s look like a big ‘if’.
CC: How do you rate the new players acquired? Who are you most excited to see come in and who were you sad to see go?
YWC: I’ve been very impressed with a couple of the new guys. Barry Bannan, Alex Lopez and Jack Hunt have looked the best of the newbies so far, and I think that Forestieri will come right too. He’s a very exciting player. I’m not particularly unhappy to see anybody leave to be honest, I think what we’ve brought in is better than we had. Although I really wanted to see Stevie May do well for us but it just didn’t work out.
CC: Historically Wednesday are a very big club. The stadium is the biggest in the division, and they have one of the highest attendances. Is there any hope they return to the past glory, or is much more likely they continue on in the Championship for the foreseeable future?
YWC: There’s always hope! Haha. I’ve been hoping for about 15 years now! I think there’s a nice bit of optimism around the club since the new investors came in, and I genuinely think that that, while this year is probably a stretch, we can start pushing for a Premier League return in the not-so-distant future. Fingers crossed anyway, I reckon our fans deserve it.
