If there is one thing Sheffield Wednesday have to get right over the coming months, it is their recruitment strategy.

Boss Carlos Carvalhal said the Owls did not require a major summer overhaul after they fell agonisingly short of promotion last year. But Wednesday invested heavily in transfer fees and wages during the 2016/17 season, bringing in THIRTEEN players. There have been more misses than hits. Ultimately, the scattergun approach to recruitment did not pay off as Huddersfield Town beat the Owls in the Championship play-off semi-finals. Here, The Star’s Wednesday writer Dom Howson analyses each and every man signed since last July.
