Sheffield Wednesday exited the FA Cup last night, as they lost 2-0 to Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium.
The Owls set up defensively on the night but in the end could not get the result against the Premier League side, who scored twice in the second-half to make the quarter-finals.
For Wednesday fans who braved the trip to South Wales in the freezing temperatures, a pat on the back is owed for sitting through what was not the best of fixtures in the chilly winds at the Liberty.
For those Wednesday fans who sat at home and endured the match commentary from Mark Lawrenson on the BBC, they deserve a medal.
BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson
The Match of the Day stalwart had clearly done no homework regarding the Wednesday team. He first asked how many of Sheffield Wednesday’s injured and cup-tied players, which included the likes of Fernando Forestieri, Gary Hooper, Tom Lees, Barry Bannan and Keiren Westwood, would have actually started the game - much to the disbelief of Wednesday fans.
He then questioned George Boyd’s left wing-back ability and prevalence, even though he has featured there regularly this month for Wednesday.
It wasn’t just Sheffield Wednesday that got the brunt of it. Swansea City striker Tammy Abraham suddenly became Tammy Abrahams and fans on Twitter were enraged.

It was certainly not the best game, it was also pretty freezing and all-in-all a bit miserable.
But Lawro’s dreadful and uninsightful commentary did not help matters.
Here is what Sheffield Wednesday fans had to say on Twitter...
Having Mark Lawrenson as Co commentator is like the time you take your dad who hasn’t been in like 10 years but still thinks he’s up to date cause he watches match of the day every week and puts an acca on once a month— SWFC GIFS (@SWFCDebater) February 27, 2018

Lawrenson may as well say ‘honest to god, I’d rather bathe in acid than watch this game,’ but he’s getting a few grand to do it so perk up... #swfc— Andy McElwaine (@andymcelwaine) February 27, 2018

Tell Mark Lawrenson to do his research! How many of our 15 out 3 cup tied would start? I’d say about 9 MAYBE 10— SWFC GIFS (@SWFCDebater) February 27, 2018
