    Monk Debunked

    Monk Debunked

    We’ve all seen those things people have said time and time again on social media about Garry Monk:



    * “He’s a journeyman”

    * “He only plays 4-4-2”

    * “His transfer record is terrible”



    But seriously, is there anything in those statements? Peter, James and James sift through the stats to find out.

    We look at the new Sheffield Wednesday manager’s transfer record at his previous clubs, how those teams lined up, and how long he stayed (and importantly, why he left)

    Plus we run through the work ahead for Monk, including a look at the Wednesday players out of contract at the end of the season (clue – there’s a lot of them)

    Peter, James and James reconvene to try to make sense of the Owls’ current position and what’s likely to come next.

    We also have the answers to other important questions such as: do the think the new shirt will have stripes?
