A number of Sheffield Wednesday fans have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on the announcement that Lee Bullen will take charge of their first game of the 2019-20 season.

The Championship club were left without a permanent manager after Steve Bruce, who only took charge in February, left to take over at Newcastle United, and Bullen once again stepped in to oversee preparations for the new season.

 

Bullen has held the Owls squad's reins since the trip to Germany in the middle of July and, with no breakthrough on a new permanent manager as of yet, the club confirmed that the stalwart will oversee the game against Reading at the Madejski Stadium.

Here is what some fans said on social media about the news, with reaction seeming mixed:

Although Wednesday finished a respectable 12th last time round, the 2018-19 season saw Jos Luhukay sacked and, following caretaker spells by Bullen and then Steve Agnew and Stephen Clemence, Bruce took the reins in February.

After the trip to Reading, the Owls will host Barnsley at Hillsborough on 10 August.
