Four Loan Boys In Action This Afternoon – How Did They Do?


Jacob Murphy started his fourth straight league match for Sheffield Wednesday at Preston this afternoon. It wasn’t a good outing for the winger as he was pulled at the half, with Fernando Forestieri coming on in his place. Sheffield Wednesday ended up losing 2-1 at Deepdale.

Kelland Watts made his third start in a week in Stevenage’s 0-0 draw at Mansfield. Stevenage have only conceded one goal since Watts joined the club. They had previously allowed 5 goals in the three games preceding his arrival, one of which was a cup match.

Elias Sorensen made his second appearance as a second half substitute for Carlisle United at home to Salford City. He came on in the 59th minute to replace fellow loan signing Olufela Olomola who opened the scoring for Carlisle this afternoon. The game ended in a 2-2 draw.

Nathan Harker got another start for Lee Clark’s Blyth Spartans today. He kept a clean sheet as Blyth drew 0-0 at Bradford PA to secure their first point of the season.

    When will these pundits just get their facts right before they open their mouths?
    Merson on Sky again saying we’re lucky to have Ashley. Thank god common sense prevailed through Jeff Stelling putting him right, saying if Ashley wasn’t there someone else would be!
    You’d think Ashley’s reputation would clarify it by now!

    So Bruce + his sword and shield in Luke Edwards think he’s unfairly maligned? Luke in particular is really not being objective. Bruce has a poor historical record in sharp contrast with his predecessor who walked rather than being sacked so brings immediate scrutiny and inevitable comparison. No honeymoon period is what he knowingly signed up to. He then proceeds to mess up massively first game followed by an utterly shambolic performance in second. In between games he tells laughable revisionist lies about the substitutions v Arsenal. He’s got some front to moan. He’s got it coming.

    This is hilarious. An attention seeking failed ex striker slags the manager and many on this blog, some of whom want relegation, approve? If the same player said Bruce was a good coach they’d call him an ex makem failed striker. Remarkable.

    FACT: We are NOT lucky to have Ashley!
    Now what’s YOUR opinion about that?
    Also Merson is clueless about most things and the only reason they keep feeding his addiction by employing him, is because he’s accidentally controversial.
    Opinion please Jib !

    If Bruce had any brains he’d walk away now before his reputation and confidence are shattered completely.
    If Ashley had any brains he wouldn’t have offered the job to Bruce or allowed Charnley the serial failure to choose again.
    However, they don’t have any understanding whatsoever of football so jib could be right and Bruce could still be here at the end of the season. Ashley will give him money in jan to bring in the two attacking players we need which wont be enough to save us if Bruce stays. He’s got experience of getting teams up Ashley will be thinking.

    One of the problems with having a huge fan base is that we have a large number of extreme views.
    Jib has intimidated by his defence of Paul Merson’s comments, that in his opinion we are “lucky to have Ashley as our owner”!
    Extreme view indeed as this is the owner who has driven the club so far down we are heading for our 3rd relegation in 12 years!

    giving money to the manager in January didn’t work the last time,
    what makes you so confidant it will this time bearing in mind Bruce has very little say in the recruitment of players is there any guarantee he’ll get the players the needs in January ????

    I made a list of championship players we should have signed at the end of last season, most would have cost between 10-20m. I wanted Bowen Wilson Adams behind Abraham. McBurnie has also scored today and there are many others made the step up with ease. I don’t know why our scouts turn their noses up at championship players but are happy to pay twice that for players from European leagues who only have a small chance of adapting. In my eyes the championship is on par with the French league and German and better than the Portuguese league excluding the big teams. Also its similar style to EPL so the players are far more likely to adapt. I think the penny has dropped with champo players and they’ll be worth a lot more next season. We should bid for Bowen now and scout for the next big thing.

    Liverpool constantly getting 5 putting pressure on box. For most other teams they have 3-5 players who contribute going forward. Bruce’s attacking football has 2 attacking players. And yet we can’t defend. If he wants to just play two up top with three defensive midfielders then he must have very attacking wing backs. I hate to say it as I love Shelvey but those three can’t play together. And the three at the back should be ditched until Lejuene comes back.
