Sheffield Wednesday all changed for season

The news coming into the new season was that Sheffield Wednesday manager Darren Moore left the club by mutual consent, which was a major shock and surprise to Owls fans and football supporters in general.

Former Watford boss Xisco Munoz came in mid July and he has had to get his squad prepared in a relatively short space of time.

The Spaniard did have success winning promotion with Watford but it remains to be seen if he can galvanize the Owls for a playoff push this season.

Southampton squad still strong

Its all change for Southampton as well, with former Swansea City manager Russell Martin coming into the hot seat at St Marys.

Martin comes in as manager after guiding Swansea to one of the better finishes in the Championship last season, taking 23 points from their last nine games of the season.

He will be hoping to continue the momentum at St Marys.

The good news for Southampton fans is that the spine of the team has remained relatively intact, with James Ward-Prowse apparently staying at the south coast club.

At this early stage in the season its difficult to predict the outcome of games but the 6/4 on the Southampton away win does look a touch of value this early on.
