Official Puma Sheffield Wednesday home football shirt from the 1999/00 season.
Condition of this vintage football jersey is 9/10 – Superb (see photos).
A very poor start to the season saw Sheffield Wednesday fail to win any of their first nine league games (gaining just one solitary point away to Premier League newcomers Bradford City) and an 8–0 hammering at the hands of Newcastle United in September saw most people tip the club as favourites for relegation, and this opinion was further strengthened by their failure to make a substantial improvement as the season went on as they won just once in their first 17 games (twice in their first 20).
The board of directors decided that enough was enough and on 21 March, Danny Wilson's managerial contract was terminated, three days after an appalling 1-0 defeat away to a struggling Watford side who had previously won only once in their previous 20 league games. Wilson's assistant Peter Shreeves took temporary charge, and kept the Owls in contention for survival right up to the penultimate day of the season.
A failure to beat Arsenal confirmed their relegation after nine successive seasons of top division football, but they did manage a 3–3 draw at Highbury. Bradford City manager Paul Jewell was then given the uphill task of restoring Premier League football to the club, though the club's mounting debts triggered fears that further struggles would lie ahead.
