Boss Carlos Carvalhal has Owls fans dreaming When Carvalhal arrived at Hillsborough in late June as the first foreign coach in Wednesday's 148 year history, he knew he had work to do.
There was a great deal of scepticism over the appointment of a coach unknown to English football, particularly one whose record of 14 clubs in 14 years offered scant reassurance. It was clear he had been tipped off about the significance of the 'M' word ahead of his first introduction to the media. On that day and over the following few weeks there were more than a few clumsy uses of 'massive' from the Portuguese. That has now largely stopped and it is no coincidence. Carvalhal now feels wanted at the club, comfortable in his position. The need to try to win over supporters with coach outlet stores 60660 words has waned. The question is raised of which club he supported as a child. He glosses over the answer, mentioning home town club Braga and a desire to see all the clubs with which he has been an employee do well. But then he begins to discuss, in glowing terms, Besiktas, whom he managed in the 2011/12 season. It quickly becomes apparent he went through a very similar journey with supporters of the Turkish side to that which he is currently going through with Wednesdayites. "One team that created for me a very fantastic environment was Besiktas in Turkey," he said. "Besiktas fans created a song for me like in Sheffield Wednesday. They have a lot of things in common. "Sometimes they created big banners with my face. "They like me very much. Even today when I go to Turkey or even when I meet a Turkish person. I was in a Turkish coach outlet store locations restaurant in London this week and the guys started talking to me about Besiktas and how they appreciate me. "The fans are called the ar.

"I am sure I will say in the future that Sheffield Wednesday will be in my heart like I am talking about Besiktas right now. I am sure that will happen."
