Owls called 'pub team' - and not by fans!

A bid of around £50,000 has been made for the striker, who scored in three of the four games in Blackpool victories against Wednesday last season.

Oyston, who claims Wednesday are acting like a ‘pub team’ (despite playing like one last season) and says that the Hillsborough club withdrew their offer last week.

Oyston told the official Blackpool website:
"I know people think Sheffield Wednesday is a big club but I'm sure that it is not that big that the team manager can't find the chief executive's office.

"Had he spoken to their chief executive, then he would have found out that Wednesday withdrew their latest offer on Scott Taylor last Friday.

"In fact, as a result of their valuation of one of our top strikers, we made an offer for one of their strikers which they decided to ignore. They are acting like a pub team rather than a professional second division club. I'm sure it is just a plan to increase season ticket sales."

Meanwhile, Danny Wilson, arguably one of the biggest disappointments when it comes to Owls managers in the last ten years, has been sacked as boss of Bristol City.

The former Wednesday midfielder, who became manager after walking out on Barnsley, was dismissed for not leading City to the first division, despite getting to the final of the play-offs.
