Leeds United and opposition fans say the same after Garry Monk sacked by Sheffield Wednesday


Garry Monk was sacked as Sheffield Wednesday manager after just 14 months at the helm – and football fans across the country have not been shy about putting their value on the subject. Owls fans have already quickly discussed who they want Dejphon Chansiri to next in Hillsborough with Paul Cook, Nigel Pearson and Eddie Howe, all popular potential candidates for the now vacant role.

Here’s how fans of Monk’s former clubs, championship rivals Sheffield Wednesday and many more reacted to the news of his departure on social media.

Fans de Leeds United

@MGbutlufchappy: Monk looking for his 6th managerial job in 7 years says a lot about him.

@LeedsUtd_News: Oh Garry. Which league club will he inevitably go to now?

@lufcThommo: Careers have become very good weapons since they left.

Mat Thomas: I’m starting to wonder if Garry Monk is a good football manager.

@ carl_we5ton: I wonder if he regrets rejecting this offer from #lufc to stay with us. The thoughtful face hasn’t really worked elsewhere for him.

@allan_howe: Just me who doesn’t hate Garry Monk? The way he left wasn’t great but seems Radz wasn’t too keen on either and his season in charge was the start of reconnecting club and city. Every time I got home that season, it was obvious the city had a buzz about it again.

@ TBradley23: Garry Monk’s career hasn’t quite gone as planned since trying to use Leeds as a stepping stone to get a job in the Premier League.

@ stuartroberts18: So Garry Monk got fired at @swfc. I’ve always liked it at Blues. Bring the club and the fans together. Left under a cloud. He then waited 12 months to get Beattie as an assistant and they lasted 10 games. Funny old world …

@ T_Owen1875: Paul Cook appears to be Garry Monk’s obvious replacement in Sheffield on Wednesday. Hope he absolutely crushes him if he gets the job – was the league manager of the season last year, for me.

@Chattatollah: Monk and Rowett are 2 of my favorite blues managers and I’ve been through a lot. Unfortunately, none will ever be back.

@ jonr1875: Why do I see Blues fans wanting Monk back?

Other fans

@roathboy (Cardiff City): Garry Monk joins. Garry Monk irritates. Garry Monk leaves. Rinse and repeat.

@footyfragmento: Garry Monk has just been sacked as Sheffield Wednesday manager. I wonder if we will have a few layoffs during this international break. It’s that time of the season.

@Buntingfootball (Sunderland): No real surprise Garry Monk was sacked as boss of Sheffield Wednesday, 7 wins since Christmas, 1 in 6 wins and his style of play wasn’t exactly impressive. It was happening and the international break was the perfect time for them to do it.

@Slowbones (Middlesbrough): You all wonder if Monk is a good manager or not. Keep in mind when he was in Boro he had Adama Traore in the books and hardly ever played with him.
