The Championship has again proven to be a wonderfully competitive rollercoaster this season. Year on year the quality in English football's second tier continues to improve, with it certainly rocketing towards being one of the top club competitions anywhere on the planet.
But whilst the likes of Leeds, Norwich, Villa and Sheffield United have been serving up brilliance in abundance, as well as a great deal of hope to any Irish onlooker concerned there may be a drouth of talent out there for Mick McCarthy to choose from at senior level, most of may have been overlooking the absolute swazzzz that's been going down at Sheffield Wednesday.
This week, the Owls asked their supporters to vote for their Goal of the Season and, by Christ, do they have a few belters to choose from.

Curlers, thunderbolts and overhead kicks therein, Steve Bruce's side still carry a slim chance of nabbing that final playoff spot, but it would take a nigh-on miracle to make up the three places from ninth to sixth with only two games of the Championship season remaining.
You can't help but feel that if they had had the services of the former Sunderland, Norwich, Villa, Sheffield United and more-or-less every other Championship team manager at the helm from the start of the season, things may well have been different.
Since officially taking the reins on February 1st, Bruce has only been beaten twice in sixteen Championship ties, going down the high flying Villains and Leeds.
Should common sense prevail and the Owls be consigned to another year fighting to return to the top-flight, supporters can at least take heart that there's certainly a fair deal of quality running through that squad.
