Three reasons why Sheffield Wednesday’s “good footballing brain” player should start against Sunderland…

Sunderland, a contender for the Championship, will visit Hillsborough on Friday night, giving Sheffield Wednesday another challenging game.

In search of their first victory of the 2023–24 Championship season, Sheffield Wednesday will attempt it once more. But it’ll be difficult versus a Sunderland team that is in good form.

It’s unclear, if not anyone’s guess, what kind of team Xisco Munoz will field tomorrow night because he is under pressure.

This season, he has chosen some dubious teams, but his absence of Reece James has baffled fans more than any other choice.

James was described as having a “good footballing brain” by his former manager, Darren Moore, however since returning to the Owls permanently in the summer, James has only appeared in 10 Championship games.

Here are three justifications for Munoz starting James’ match against Sunderland next night:


superior to Delgado
This season, Juan Delgado has frequently played left back. But Munoz has reportedly continued to play him because he signed him and wants to see him succeed, despite the fact that he has been very ordinary, if not worse.

James shown last season that he is a very gifted left-back who can contribute well to both the attack and the defense in terms of creativity and energy.

gathering the band once more……………

This season, the team has many new faces. And Munoz has also deported Marvin Johnson, George Byers, and Will Vaulks in an unfair manner, in addition to James.

However, bringing back James would mean bringing back a member of the club that won promotion last year. Having more members of that team on the field would undoubtedly help Wednesday, who now look like a shell of the group they were in the previous campaign.

EFL proficiency
Delgado, along with a good number of the other summer arrivals, also have the problem that they have no prior experience playing in the Football League or even in the English game.

James is a player who is familiar with the Football League and has already been worn down and tried in the league, despite the fact that he has been exposed on a few occasions this season.

The match against Sunderland tomorrow begins at 8 p.m. and will be shown live on Sky Sports.
